    Default About 1/4 mile K band warning good bad or decent????

    Ok, I was going to work today. Leaving and about a mile from my house I get a k band signal. I'm like whoa, need to slow down a little cuz I know its not a false. The road goes straight and then theres a nice little curve, straight again for just a tad then a stop sign. So I get around the curve and I see some lights. It was just a cop at a little crash site (dont know y a cop would run constant on at a crash site, but w/e) Well, continuing to go to work, I wonder how far it was from where I got the alert. So tonight coming back from work I get to where the cop was and look at my milage, I get to where I was about before and it was about 3/10 of a mile. How good detection is this? There was a curve. I just wanna know how people feel of this distance and if my detector is still performing good. I had plenty time to slow down ( i wasnt really speeding at the time, or atleast not excessivly). I just want some ideas. Thank you!

    This is assuming the radar source was facing towards you; superb if it was facing away (if you could tell this).

    it was facing my way. I could tell because when I was at the stop sign the cop was a little behind me on the drivers side, k band was at a 4, coming up to it I got all the way up to 8. So i know it was definatly running front radar ansd was facing me.

    With a curve, I would agree that is good range. Gotta be prepared going around a curve, you just never know whats around the curve, constant on thank the cop, but if a cop has instant on and your the leader, your going to be toast.

    I THINK IT COULD HAD BEEN BETTER BUT I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON THE RDARAGUN THE COP WAS USEING. I NEVER GET LESS THAN A MILE ON K ALERT ON INSTANT-ON Allways like 1.6 to 1.9 BUT THIS IS WITH MY X50 THO
