My wife just went out to run an errand with the kids and ran into a Union County NC Sheriff Lidar training session. She said they had four deputies lined up painting cars and were actively handing out citations with chase vehicles. She didn’t remember what the lidar units looked like but she thought they had handles with vertical lenses. My son said he saw them holding binoculars so maybe TruSpeed and TruSpeed S?? She was at PSL and an oncoming car flashed its lights. I’m just disappointed I missed an actual laser alert but the results may have been different if I were behind the wheel. ;)

With that description sounds like the TS/TSS as you said.

I got a laser hit on my motorcycle (R7) recently because they have to target center mass right where my detector is.
I actually had 2 hits as I believe they got a no reading the first try or was unbelieving of my PSL rate.
I believe I will try swerving around potholes and manholes next time I see laser and make it hard to target the small bike area.
Fairly long distance shot so that didn't work in LEOs favor. :p

Yippie! Glad the R7 delivered alert. We will not know of alert was reflective and could be a save, or a direct hit. Either way, at least it is working decent.
