honestly for the price. not a bad detector, I am looking forward to see your results on BSM which would break or make this unit.

but, camera, unique display and shape, Wi Fi and auto updates.. for 450 dollars, I think for the non enthusiast set and forget kind of person this unit is a winner .

I noticed there was an option to segment , it would be interesting to see if the range increases by segmenting..

Anyhow , thanks for sharing.

ummmm I'm trying to think of a way to take off my computer on to here skipping utube. I'm sorry all, my experience is limited on the video part. It does seem tags are hard to make out unless I'm right behind them. I'm going to get around and do some night driving with it, sleep when I'm dead lol
haha, could you try uploading a sample clip to Dropbox or something? I'd like to do a quick video on the detector soon and it'd be handy to have a sample clip from the dashcam to use for the video. I can always grab a snippet from the YouTube video and ultimately the quality will probably look very similar since my video will also go through YouTube's compression as well, but just for the sake of getting the best looking video quality possible. :)

let me call my sister she's good at this stuff. i'll get something together. brb i think i need to go in and adjust the quality. i uploaded irad last night, or the app for the video. i see what the quality is set at, but finally gave up at 0100 this morning trying to figure out how to connect and change

Yep.. good idea. YouTube for a basic account seems to degrade video quality. Making dash cam videos seem worse than they are in real life.

I watched the video twice. The display, and setting procedures has grown on me. To me, looks easier than all the button pushing and double duty buttons when setting other radar detectors. I like the rotary bezel, buttons, and how the display works when changing settings.

I wonder if Cobra version of Escort barely alive let’s a user changes settings within that.

Don’t forget to test the vertical off axis performance. In honor of all those epic fail Cobra pictures. :)

That is some nice Voice synthesizer there. The clarity the menu function nice to hear, especially in a Cobra. What does the Alerts to Police Band detection sound like?

Well, if you were not told not to post anything, you're aren't the [email protected]$$. We already new the product is out and is being sold online. Having a Beta now makes no since, and knowing your are active here, well they should of had a memo on that.
