Hello, I purchased a Beltronics Vector 955 in August and noticed the detection range was not good at all. The unit detected police "constant-on" about 5 seconds before I saw the officer's car on the side of the road talking to someone already pulled over. Therefore, I sent my 955 to Beltronics to get it checked and fixed. I got it back and one night I was driving and saw a police car's flashing red and blue lights before my 955 began to detect the officer's radar. In another instance, I drove past a police officer who had pulled someone over and I thought that the detection range was pretty poor compared to the reviews I've read on the internet of people getting between a quarter mile to a full mile of detection range. I drove towards the officer in both directions and recorded it on my cell phone. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could please look at my two YouTube videos below of my most recent encounter with radar that I just described, give me your thoughts, and tell me whether this is how the V955 should be operating and if not, why is it not working the way it's supposed to after I sent it back to be repaired. Thank you for any input.
