I have been on a few road trips and I'm very pleased with my V995's ability to pick up radar. However, I am very concerned when it comes to laser. I have passed a few police cars sitting in me median with laser guns and it never went off. Maybe they weren't pointing it at me. But I am concerend because my laser alert has "never" gone off. Not once. And I have read that at least a handful have the same concerns. For radar it's awesome. I don't think I'd want anything else. Not too many falses and picks up radar from far away "unless of course instant on is being used". I have even picked up instant on a few times from far away because of other cars. Just worried about laser capabilities.
