Yesterday, I took my V895 out of my car and placed it on the dash in my wife's trailblazer. As we headed to town, I started getting a Ka warning. Strength 2. I slowed down as the alert got faster and louder when all of a sudden here comes a LEO over the hill about 1/4 mile away.
All said and done, I got about .75 miles alert. The cool part is the RD was sitting on the sloped dashboard aimed right at the hood/wipers/ground. I figure if it had been up high, I would have gotten at least 1 to 1.5 miles of detection. Still, I am very pleased..
