While traveling on I-80 west bond from NJ to OH, got hit twice by lidar, once in NJ and late again in OH. In NJ about 40 miles before PA board, traffic was moderate. I was at last position with a line of cars traveling about 85 mph at time. No Waze indicate there was a LEO in the area, but I saw one in the distance, suddenly, the ZR5 shifter alerts, which is about 600 or 700 feet away. Wasn’t sure if I was the one got targeted, with that little of distance, not a whole lot to do other than lifting foot from the gas.... by the JTK kicked in, I was pretty much at the front of LEO, as I passed, from rear view mirror, he didn’t pull out. Don’t know if I saved by ZR5 or just got the alert from LEO was targeting someone else far behind me. Then, several hours late, after sunset, very light traffics and I was pretty much alone traveling on center lane, I got laser alerts, I slowed down from 85 to 75, JTK kicked in at 4 second, then I saw the LEO was sitting at side. I got the initial alerts about 1500 feet out. Again, no Waze indicated there was LEO in front. This time, without other cars around, I was pretty sure that I was targeted. Still waiting for available resources in the area for a full test my ZR5, but did feel better with several recent encounters. If Escort could offer a “2 second JTK”, it will be much better. 4 seconds seem very long...... :)

Well, I would say by the last hit that you are protected. Obviously it's nice to test this prior to real world experiences but sounds like they are doing their job.

Or, at 10 over the cop decided its not enough to break cover to give him a ticket

Make sure you manually kill if possible, jamming until you reach the cops isn't a good idea. Sometimes if the hit you really close up you won't be able to help it if they are well hidden but if you see them you should have a finger on the kill switch and be ready to hit it

Yes. For sure.
