Sorry if this question has been asked before.
My new"ish" STi Driver usually pics up a cruiser about 1/2 mile away +/- but the other day it warned me just as I crossed the nose of a cruiser parked behind a sign perpendicular to the road. I turned it off immediately (with my panic switch) so I don't even know what band it was. I just know it scared the hooyee out of me because I thought the LEO might have heard the warning. they're illegal here.
I suppose it's possible the LEO was using IO, but later I thought my STi may have picked up his Spectre. Does the Spectre RDD send out a signal that can be picked up by the STI??
Don't worry about the short warning distance of a 1/2 mile. It is HEAVILY concealed and is not mounted anywhere near the windsheild. I don't mind sacrificing a little sensitivity for piece of mind.
