Ok. Second road trip with the X50 today. Mounted it high this time and I had better warning distances.
However, the little unit really sniffed one out today. I was driving on a rural stretch of highway with a ridiculously low speed limit of 60. I didn't want to push my luck in a company vehicle so I was doing about 70. I mainly brought the X50 along to get more windshield time with it.
Anyway, this young thing in a Honda Civic passes me doing about 85. Later, she is about 1/2 mile ahead and rounds a curve in the road and goes out of sight. About two seconds later I get two quick Ka "brap braps" from the X50. I get off the gas and slow down.
I start rounding the curve and lo and behold a Texas DPS is coming from the other direction and he locks on to me at close range (less than 1/4 mile).
My old Vector 940 would have never sniffed that one out.
Yep! I'm starting to trust it a little more.
