My teacher and I have had some brief discussions about him being a police officer and me having a Passport Escort x50. He gets pretty serious about it and claims that it doesn't work at all (when obviously it does) and that it won't detect laser at all. I told him it does and it has and that I know that if I'm hit with it I'm caught (unless it sees the laser from the rabbit in front of me).
He claims that they would be on an overpass and aim at the license plate and instantly have the speed of a car and it was so cool. He then said that since they aim low that my RD wouldn't see it.
All I know is that in the months I've owned my RD that it has worked many times and has saved me quite a few times on the highway speeding about 20mph over the limit at times.
I'm just curious what you guys think? This is a $300 piece of equipment and I'm sure it does what it says, I just haven't had a chance to test laser since I've never actually seen them use it around my area.
EDIT: I never brought up the POP gun function, so maybe that could be something he is talking about. I don't use POP since I've never seen it used around here. As far as I can tell all cops use Ka and sheriffs use K band.
