These results are similar to my observations with my own detectors (non-test scenarios, just use observations). Rear detection in order for me is R7, V1, Redline, R1, ProM. I run my ProM tsf low btw. Tsf off it isn’t really worth it, false seems as bad as the R1 before the K notch.

In the single horn units, the Redline and R1 hold longer than you expect (as I gain understanding, what I expect changes) but the Pro M pretty much just drops it after a couple hundred feet (less than a quarter mile). Like source is still in the RVM and Pro M is already done with it. Drove ProM through a set of speed signs in a construction zone yesterday and the forward detections were about what you expect but once you passed the signs the latch just let go, even with oncoming traffic still triggering the signs. That extra sensitivity and extra horn definitely make the difference.

Thanks for the testing and sharing results everyone!

Great feedback. Glad you can run ProM on TSR Low. I thought I could. And run with it off. Was wrong. Too much falsing for me.

I tried off, and I found the Pro M to be almost unpleasant. Slightly better than the Redline but definitely not worth the distance hit. Low is the best compromise I could achieve to enjoy the rest of the detector without clipping its wings and rendering it a fancy speedo.

When I headed out to the flat midwest, High was great. Here at home in the hills, that sensitivity is necessary. Plus we are a significantly lower median income location filled to the brim with rednecks gun toters and good ol boys. Not as many fancy cars and sensor arrays, and even on low the Honda aren’t any trouble.
