    Thumbs up Re: Cobra S-XRS 9970G

    Some more thoughts on my Cobra S-XRS 9970G:

    1. I've never noticed this before: When you get a alert on a Camera, Caution Area, or User Location, it will show your distance at the bottom of the screen for the first alert only on the Green (small) and Orange (medium) Icon only.

    2. GPS continues to amaze me.

    3. Range has been definitely increased on all bands. Off axis is a little weak.

    4. Remember to take your detectors off your windshield (leave your bracket on) during the high temperatures!

    More Later!

    Thumbs up Re: Cobra S-XRS 9970G

    I received a laser hit on my Cobra S-XRS 9700G.

    I was driving south on 65 towards IN and KY border. I received a courtesy flash of lights from a N. bound motorist that someone was taking pictures for making the state some money, somewhere behind them. I then received a nice notice on my CB of the same notice. I come up over a slight rise and there he is picking off offenders. About the time I was in good view, wham he checked me out. No room for error or correction. It came up as a "Kustom Signals/200 PPS". I was legal at 55 way before. Then on to next customer. Moral of story, keep your ears and eyes open scanning ahead. You don't have a chance with laser unless it's just luck. He was outside of his car aiming rearward using car to aim steady. That area is a money maker! Ridiculous speed limit at 70 then to a 55. It's not about safety it's about money! IMO.

    P.S.

    Also picked up laser near airport. It came up as just "Laser"

    The laser alert near the airport was probably their windshear detection system.

    Ummm no. All cars that have Lane Assist/Blind Spot Detection run on K band and NOT on KA band. If your cobra is falsing on KA then it's either picking itself up or another leaky cobra. That's the only things besides possibly Satellite dishes and maybe the odd cell phone tower (that's more K/X I believe) that might cause it, but definitely not any of the lane assist/blind spot avoidance crap that every car seems to be getting now. People need to learn to use their damn mirrors and look over their shoulder instead of just randomly pulling into another lane *sigh*.
    No matter how much a RD leaks, it will not detect itself unless it is a reflective box.

    Any electronic device with a control crystal or local oscillator can be detected with the right instruments.
