I was heading to an activity with my son, got off the highway and onto the side road....came around the bend and full blast coming down the hill. So dark you can barely see him on the left...then into a laser false....not sure what that was about.

Usually with I/O it's not point in braking since he already has your speed. Were you doing PSL or under and you just had the reflex to brake? If you were doing over PSL, could it be that he didn't pay attention to your speed as soon as he engaged the radar, because I see no reason why he didn't give you a ticket if he clocked you over PSL. Thanks!

  • Given the darkness I had no idea where the LEO was when it alerted - for all I know he was about to come around the bend
  • There was NO PSL sign when I got off the highway so the limit was 'unknown' - better safe than sorry with the brakes
  • That other vehicle 'blocked' his signal for a second right as he hit me, and I hit the brakes - could have given me that split second grace period to shave a few.
  • Yes, complete habit to hit the brakes when I get a Ka alert in my terrain as typically you only have a couple seconds to react even with C/O.

I kinda wonder if it was I/O or the Max just dropping the ball. When I've played with the Max series before I've had strange occurrences that seemed like I/O.

Either way, yikes! And a laser false?

'Knock on wood' the 360 has been performing very well after, finally, getting it back from Escort - I have had no instances of sleeping to any false alerts or the Bushnell. K-Band LEO encounters have been solid and consistent with no dropping of the signal like prior with the unit. I received a very good K-band C/O warning today as well. I've had a couple Ka encounters as well which seem to be on par for the unit. So far so good, but more time is needed.
