    Default Woohoo RX-65 .... Owned cops laser at .7 miles around a bend



    Driving up NYS Thruway with my wife, and got to the Newburgh exit (exit 17) and got a laser alert. I slowed down, but I thought it was a false. About .7 miles later I see the cop sitting in the median facing traffic!

    Not too mention I was coming from around a slight curve of the road to the right.

    Can't wait to get me some Veil!

    Just goes to show you what a $330 radar detector can do :P

    BTW - my wifes comment was I NEED ONE..."mine doesn't pick it up from that far away" haha... she's got a old school cobra 9210 :shock:

    thats about 3696ft i doubt that was the cop you saw...It was most likely an officer standing up the road sheilded by the darkness and his buddy down the road he would radio to pull a speeder over

    Also officers can only ticket up to a 1000ft plus at that range the cop could of picked up the car next to you

    Hopefully, SML will do a long range laser detection test this year so we will have a true idea of how far away a detector will alert. The V1 on video detects at least from 2500ft away at least. It is still possible that he caught a lucky reflection off of another vehicle sort of like what Mike Valentine posted on his webpage.
