Hi, all.
The range was about a mile. At first I thought it was a false, but frequency (24.140) and direction (front) both stayed the same, so I knew it's legit. Then few seconds later - full blast: LEO was oncoming down that hill, checking the car far ahead in my direction. Then the Jeep ahead briefly used brakes as he probably spotted the LEO. Next blast was for the vehicle behind me (as he was getting closer pretty quick). I don't think I was the target, cause the alert went off pretty much as the LEO was almost passing by. I think he was pretty selective. Pretty good traffic for that road, so there was no speeding or chance to pass slower traffic. But normally it is a stretch where I would pass anyone in front that is not going at least 7-8 MPH over the PSL. So it could have been a good save...

R7 - FrontCam - 24.140 I/O (LEO is at 0:38):

R7 - RearCam - 24.140 I/O (LEO is at 0:34):

Rear cam does not have GPS, so the time drifts...

you acted like you were excited about getting k band.. :) good detection btw. looked as if the car ahead of you was having a hard time staying in their lane.
In a way, yes (some excitement in the area). Usually C/O or no radar at all, I guess they are lazy, or I don't drive enough...
And yes, that Jeep ahead was moving pretty slow and not really straight. I had a chance to pass it later on...

That was an unmarked car. Very hard to see him when he is heading in your direction. Thanks for sharing.

Indeed. Was able to identify him in the last few seconds...

Yet, I had another K band I/O today, different LEO (not seen before in the area). Was not a save, I did not have a rabibt, but he had pretty high tolerance as well. All was good.​

For sure. Will upload and add comments later "today" (it's 1:50am right now here). It was one of those moments when your are not so cautious, speed drifts away, and then not even the top-of-line CM can help you. Luckily, nothing happened.

Good save! I/O K band on a busy highway like this is the worst, you could very easily mistake it for BSM falsing...
For sure. That was exactly my initial though when got the first alert...

@Tallyho,
Here's the video of that encounter I mentioned last night:

Nice save! Long range saves are the best when you can enjoy the moment and not have to worry about getting pulled over.

Have you noticed a lot of RD users near you for the LEO to start using I/O?
