True but I was thinking of cost. Stalkers normally much more money then you can find MPH Ka units lately. Size compared to say a K band horn - Ka is so much smaller and a bit more easy to hide.
Yep - I have a Stalker ATR (think 4 total) - last one i acquired came from the CN...
Love Jon's sense of humor.
I upgraded to a V1-G2 from a V1-G1. But will buy a Theia when it comes out. Either it will be my backup or give it to my son that drives 25 miles to work each day.

Belvidere 'Chrysler' plant has been 'shut down' most of May. Then extended to mid June. Now though July 4th due to chip / parts shortage. https://www.wifr.com/2021/06/10/belvidere-chrysler-plant-extends-shutdown-through-july-4/
So it seems to be a on going thing. It's anyone guess when it will...
Ka band - was even using the old V1-G1 back then. The Rockford bypass warning was at a good range. I don't remember the other ones as much. Traffic was a bit more heavy on the other interstates.
I've seen them over the years. US 20 Rockford bypass years back - ISP Photo vehicle in construction zone.
Southern IL I-57 construction zone - photo van again. Last one was south of Springfield I 55 construction zone.
So they are around - they stand out with and are hard to miss. Plus my V1...
Understand about 'the better half'. But with better range comes signals with no LEO around. Since they now can give alerts so far away compared to even models 10 years ago or less at times even.
I've gotten a alert then it goes silent. Then many miles down the road I run into the source. Or...
Back in the V1-G1 days. "False" signals didn't bother me much till every new car had false K band alerts coming from them. Love how quite the new V1-G2 is compared to those days.
But there are trade offs on filtering etc. Longer K band alerts delays and possible missing of a K band signal. But...
You'll love it - love the patch antenna's. Nice and small and easy to mount.
I should put it back into the vehicle. Mine is the older version 1 series. I need to do a updated picture of all them on the dash again.
Take care Spin
Never had a problem with a detector being seen. But I have the V1G2 high up tight to the top of the window.
The LEO's are more interested with the MPH Python 3 or BEE III on the dash. (or one of the other I own - see picture to the left lol)
More then once they asked me why I have one. Then I...
