    Default Questions about XRS9775 in Michigan

    I am considering getting this unit for use on Michigan freeways. Will this pick up Michigan State police?

    And what about within the cities?

    Radar detectors do not pickup police they only pickup radar if the police has it in his car and it is on.
    So it does not matter if it is a state or city either.
    As far as Cobras go most here would agree to stay away from these units because they are the low end and they cause other detectors to false becasue Cobra's leak, you can find out more by reading in the forums.

    If you are not wanting to spend a lot of money look at the Whistlers PRO series or the Bel 795 at Radio Shack. Both of these models have been well discussed here as well.

    That sounds like laser, which is much harder to detect. It's nearly impossible to pick it up unless you are directly targeted, at which point it's already too late to do anything. The only way to give yourself a chance is countermeasures like Veil, LaserShield, and/or a jammer.
