Sorry if this has already been posted, but i couldn't really find what i was looking for after searching.
So i just recently bought a refurb 8500 x50 (my first RD), and i wanted to make sure it was working correctly.
I was just curious what is the real world detection time that people normally experience??
picking up false's from automatic doors, i usually only get those when im right next to them. Which seems normal to me since im assuming they are a weaker signal. But for radar guns, what should i be expecting?
I see people posting things like "3.4 miles save" or "1.x mile save"....im guessing those are just rare cases? Cuz the few alerts ive gotten have been only a few seconds warning...
also, i understand it depends greatly on the terrain and the driving conditions, but just curious what i should be expecting...
