New to the forum, LOTS of good info here
I have a escort passport 8500 x50 blue.
The past couple of months i have noticed the California Highway patrol using Laser on the 580 freeway that i travel every day. It's very obvious that the CHP officer is holding the gun to his eye. My laser detection does not go off. well for a while i figured that at that point in time he was not on the button or he was not locked on me. But today was a different story. CHP was in the same spot as always, gun out the window but this time he locks onto a car right next to me in one lane over. I spot the CHP from a distance and slow down. while still slowing and approaching my exit the chp pulls out behind me from the side of the highway and pulls the car over that was traveling next to me. My question is how much of the laser signal must hit my radar detector for it to go off? Seems to me it should have signaled laser. Is laser detection any better on the 9500i?
