    Default V995 Signal Meter

    Obviously the higher the meter the stronger the signal and closer the cop is... But does each bar designate a certain distance?

    No it is just a meter of how strong the signal is. When the meter is all the way it usually means you are close to the radar source.

    Also: (I believe Jim stated this): That each detector is different, and that (like Jamal said), it is a measure of how strong the signal is rather then the distance from the unit.

    Because (what I took from what Jim said) a company could (in theory) just make the 'display' to 'ramp up' extremely quick, since its not about distance persay, but rather a signal... but they dont do this because it wouldnt act as much of a 'geiger counter'.

    So just because one RD detects a signal and displays something at 1/2 strength and one detector detects a signal at the same point at a 1/4 strength, it doesnt gaurentee the 1/2strength one is more sensative because its showing a 'stronger' signal, it just means its signal display is made to 'ramp up' quicker.


    Note: I am not trying to put words in Jims mouth, but I believe he posted about this issue once and this is what I took from what he said... I may be incorrect in my assumptions though.
