A newbie who is probably going to borrow your brains since I have very little (read "no" ) experience with radar detectors. I had a Snooper road runner a few years back. It still makes noise but I assume it is totally obsolete. So I jumped in and bought the above. I've had it for about 24hrs and so far it has detected nothing but supermarket door openers. I drive the palisades parkway often and it is patrolled by the NYSP. I try not to speed (most people now go between 70 - 80) but I hope the detector can give me some protection. If they can jamb my radar then what is the sense of me using it? I guess the local police use different radars but I don't know what kind or if my detector will give me enough warning.
Several times in the last 2 wks the NYSP pulled my wife over and told her that her registration info did not match the windshield sticker. How he knew that boggles my mind. There was a problem but how did the police know it. The car was moving and she never saw the cop. (?)
It is the local cops that worry me. I see them parked at 90 degree angles to the road. Do they have around the corner capabilities? The main reason I bought the detector was the ridiculous speed limits on some roads which are 2 lanes and up with no pedestrian and very little cross traffic.
I look forward to any comments.
