Hey everyone, new to the RD scene and I have a couple of questions.
I have been testing RD's out the last couple of months and am curious on what is the normal range for pickup.
I tested the 9500ix and Redline but the MAXIMUM I got was less than 1/2 mile and I could almost always see the LEO first. Does that sound right because that is not much time to react? It would seem like he would already have my speed by then.
I have seen about 4 LEO cars parked with the radar still on and have drove back and forth testing them and can never get more that 1/2 mile detection.
I keep hearing about people getting miles of range, so why are the ones I am trying not coming close to that. I have them mounted high or in the middle of the windshield. The highways around me have alot of hills but when the RD's go off, it is usually a straight stretch of road.
Anyway, I am getting ready to test the V1 and see how that one does but am not getting my hopes up.
BTW, I have sent back the Redline and 9500ix but I am actually really missing them.
