Just picked up the Escort 360C last week and dug into forums today and found that X and K are practically non-existent in my area. Going to turn those off immediately!

Now, the question I have is, if LIDAR is the source of practically half of the speeding tickets in California, is the primary use of a speed radar to save yourself from some cops that still use 34.7 and 35.5 or are there more uses that I'm not thinking of. I'm not looking to splurge on a ALP system and will only use the radar detector so I'm wondering what kind of use I'll get out of this. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Which 360c did you buy, the Redline or the Max?

Welcome, you will see a lot of Ka 34.7, so your detector is quite useful. If you have a heavy right foot, laser protection would be a good idea. You could look at the TMG with an RDF discount from @Jag42 if you are tight on funds.

Hello from another Andrew from the Bay Area.

34.7 and laser is what you'll find with CHP. Save up and consider the ALP (or TMG) systems. San Francisco itself is all laser for speed enforcement.

The nice thing about ALP is you don't have to go full out crazy to start. You can scale up later. Even for detection, it's superior to any RD, as it'll identify WHAT kind of laser you're encountering.
