    Default x50 wtf?

    Just got the escort x50 yesterday and had a horrible first experience. Need to return it ASAP and get a V1. And im somewhat seasoned when it comes to radar/laser and detectors so can't chalk this one to newbie stuff.

    X50 was mounted center of windshield just above the wipers.

    NJ trooper shooting laser tonite on I287. Didn't get one damn alarm. Drove by him again to check to make sure he was shooting. WTF? Tried for third but he had pulled someone over.

    And how do i know he was shooting me? The first time as i was passing him i was in the left lane and driving the fastest in a 6 car pack. Plus as i passed, it looked like he was aimin at me as i passed. BTW i was doing 83 in 65mph

    I have new car, 06altima w/out front plate.

    Need to get m20(and hopefully it works) ASAP too. Im seeing more and more NJtroopers using laser.

    if you get a jammer, why do you need a v1 to detect its laser when the jammer will?

    You are spending 100$ more on a detector that will tell you when you have been shot, or you can apply that toward a jammer and let that do its job.

    I say if you were driving 83 in a 65 and didn't get pulled, you weren't clocked. Sorry but that just doesn't make any sense.

    exactly what I was about to type....I would say give it another go man....the only way to detect laser properly is to have a detector mounted next to numberplates/headlights!!

    Yeah its about 95% sure you weren't clocked ... LEO's arent all about giving people 18MPH especially in NJ.

    he was probably using instant-on and didnt pull the trigger on you. i'd say you got mighty lucky. or he was using laser and targeting another car. the x50 is a great detector and would never have a problem like this

    The X50 is not known for its laser detectability like the V1 is known for so dont judge the X50 on laser performance because you will be VERY disapointed
