I live in greece and i had a very old Cobra trapshooter which i rarely used many years ago.It never reported any radars at all all those years...hehe...Made in Japan...that was some great built quality back then.
I got a ticket a few weeks back doing 190km/s and i slew down as i saw the policeman running on foot into my lane to make me stop...ouch...hopefully i got away with 128km and 33 eyro fine...the guys were great....3 points in my licence too.At least i kept my car...
I bought the XRS 9700 as a mate of mine brought it from the US...he got 2 of them so i decided to buy one without doing any reasearch i had thoughts that Cobras aint the top of the line detectors...you know...value for money etc.
So i bought it...set up the compass and used it so far once in my trip to athens(2 hour trip)
The radar detected Ka radars on my way there.I saw a few police vehicles but i got no detection of radars.I guess they werent operating at the time?
So my questions are.
What are pop radars....what ar Ka radars, VG2 blah blah blah.
All the codes i am getting...which radar is which.
For example the Gatso radars...are they detected by the Cobra?Cos we got such radars here in Greece.And what about the portable radars operated by policeman(hand)...are these the pop radars?What is the range this radar can detect?How far away will it detect these radars?
Thats it really...i read the manual but no information on the description of the alerts(what radar is represented by each alert)
Any help would be much appreciated.
