A friend of mine with a 9500i was hit by laser a couple of days ago here in British Columbia, Canada. The 9500i did not alert and he was pulled over and ticketed.
The situation: clear sunny day on a 4 lane mountain highway. LEO shooting laser at cars coming around corner. 9500i is mounted low in his Mazdaspeed 3, but with clear view. Clean windshield. Car in front and car behind were also pulled over. LEO claims he was 26 kph over speed limit.
This radar detector has always detected laser in the past. Are there any laser guns (such as Truspeed) that cannot be detected by the 9500i? Or is it more likely that the LEO only shot the lead car?
