The GOL, myself, thestaton, and RacerX decided to do an extra mini test at the GOL event this weekend.
This test was a POP mode test on the Beltronics STi Driver!
The first POP test was a test of the 67ms Ka band POP using a MPH Enforcer model, this is the same POP mode that is on the MPH Bee III model. The test course was flat and straight. We measured out 1,500 feet from the radar source to the test vehicle using a ProLaser III laser gun.
stealthJamal's STi was used for this test. Here are the results:
The STi detected 67ms Ka band POP from 1,500 feet 10 out of 10 times, that is 100% detection!
Next we tested the STi against the MPH Z35 16ms K band POP mode. The only 2 radar guns that have this 16ms POP available are the MPH Z35 and MPH Z25. For this test, the tester stood about 5 feet in front of the test vehicle with the MPH Z35 in POP mode.
For MPH Z35 16ms POP test we had stealthJamal's and RacerX STi available. We also tested Jimbonzzz and happya$$' V1's to compare.
Here are the test results:
stealthJamal's STi detected MPH Z35 16ms K band POP 2 out of 10 times!
RacerX's STi detected MPH Z35 16ms K band POP 3 out of 10 times!
Jimbonzzz's V1 detected MPH Z35 16ms K band POP 1 out of 10 times!
happya$$' V1 detected MPH Z35 16ms K band POP 0 out of 10 times!
The STi's results on the MPH Z35 16ms K band POP are the best results seen by any radar detector to date!
I admit I was suspicious of the STi's POP detection because the STi is VERY quiet when you have POP mode enabled. The Bel STi RARELY FALSES with POP turned on. Congratulations to Beltronics for this achievement!
Note: This test was at very close range, only about 10 feet in front of the test vehicle.
