No driver facing camera yet?
Not going to happen lol. If it becomes industry standard I guess I will retire and take up sitting on the porch drinking cold beer all day lol

Maybe buy me another superbike and become a 24/7 hooligan again!

I don't have a single one of my old detectors. Most recently had to send V1G1 in to get V1G2. Everything before Valentine did not have Ka so was worthless anyway.

Yeah, after running your older detectors for a week, you will really appreciate the performance of the top shelf units today lol

I've sold off my old detectors, my r7 would be my oldest now, they just put cameras in all the trucks, said the insurance company made them do it
Post automatically merged:

Need to figure out how to pull 15 minute loop of recording off there.

Then just set it up with a continuous loop lol

For sake of nostalgia, I will confess to riding around with my original Passport once in a while. But, after about 10 minutes, one realizes it's not useable in populated areas any longer :(

OMG Yes the S7 Vector series was the best. Terrible for BSM but back in the mid 2000s when there was no such thing as BSM, it was on fire as a detector.

Wanted to see if she still worked.....Made two passes down the road putting her up against modern tech against mighty K band....

R360C
MAX360Ci

First pass old betsy alerted before both above by a second
Second pass they both beat her by a sec....

Sitting still in first pic you can see her alerting as Stalker Basic is pointing away from her to the road, R360C and Max360Ci both silent......When I returned to park same spot the Max360Ci would alert in that spot but R360C was dead silent....Just goes to show the handcuffing of K band in todays world to try to beat BSM's....Hope the road is treating you well @Freebird ....Stay safe out there....

Nice, one of the last runs that had the red mute feature.

Thanks @croup . Just creeping up on 2 years and 250K miles in the Truck. Staying busy and outta trouble for the most part lol.

Gets pretty boring sometimes so giving the older units in my sig some dash time helps change things up a bit.

Stay safe guys!
