I don't know why there's a lot of bad criticism on the Cobra detectors. I did a few research before I made my mind on the Cobra. It all come down to the STi, V1 and XRS. They all have 5 star ratings.
I witness my detector pick up at least 1/4 mile away with Kband and I did saw the cruiser come by toward me a few times. What annoys me is that the detector doesn't turn on once in a while even when I power cycle the device. Check the fuse but nothing is broke.
I am wondering, if the cruiser is coming from the left or right, will the detector suppose to pick up the signal?
