    Default XRS9700 -- I hear the detector tells you what laser gun.....

    I heard that the XRS9700 tells you what brand of laser gun you're hit with because it knows the different pulses per second each gun uses. So if you're hit with a Kustom Pro Laser III it'll say on the radar detector Prolaser or something like that.

    Is this rumor true?

    As far as I know its not true. Father in law has one he said it has went off on laser but never did tell him the kind out by the airport.

    That would be kinda cool though.
    If they really wanted to, they could even do it for Ka radar based on the freq (Kustom, Stalker, MPH)

    If you have an X50 in your car on spec display you could quickly look at the spec, compare it to the small chart you have in your car, and when the officer comes up to the car you can say....

    ..."Hello officer....is that a stalker radar in your car or are you just happy to see me :-)"

    My girlfriend was hit with laser last week and it didn't report a type as far as I know. Just screamed that she was being hit with laser.

    the 9870 I had displayed what type of laser gun was used. ProLaser, 20/20, etc... I think there was 3 or 4 different types. The alerts were all the same "rreeeooo rrreeeoooo LASER ALERT" but it would scroll across the screen the type of laser gun.

    Radartest said that it frequently reported the incorrect model.
