You may be asking for too much... I agree with you though.
I had a V1 and when I was full into programming it the way I wanted it, it was unbeatable. Sure, the R7 would beat it in range but my situational awareness would be much less which is another key factor in figuring out if there is a cop...
I drive about 60 miles round trip M-F plus whatever I do over the weekends which can be another 50-100ish miles total.
Premium gas at like $3 with a 16ish gallon tank adds up to like $50 and I usually go through a tank and a half per week so about $75 per week if I'm being conservative. Car...
They are call radar detectors for a reason. They detect radar not cops or laser. Some of them will detect laser but they will only act as a ticket notifier. If you want protection against laser, your only option is a laser jammer.
Does anyone know of a hardware kit that has wires long enough so I can run it all the way to the back of my car? My fuse box is in the trunk and all the ones I find online don't seem to be long enough.
That's parenting goals.
I usually flash my lights but it all depends if the cop is pointing at opposite traffic or my direction, is he doing speed enforcement where he should be (school zones) or on long stretches of empty roads?
Would someone be able to create an alp sensor mount that could accommodate a sheet of perspex to hide the sensor and make it look like a stock sensor from the car? This would be highly useful for people in states where LJ are illegal like here in IL :)
People talking like if their lives depend on a F*ing radar detector. If that's the case, I feel bad for you that can't wait a couple of extra days for a radar detector or feel "betrayed" or "cheated" because a manufacturer did the best he could to get you the newest shiniest thing out there.
Poor things... now they suffer what regular people have to go through when they decide to hand out tickets for "safety" reasons?
I hope they keep getting them until they can't afford them, maybe that'll change their mindsets but I am sure they will lobby hard to have the city or government...
So far it seems to deliver what it was promised. A bit more of range but not much more, if any, from the current R series and great rear and arrow performance.
Huge thank you for all your time and testing!
