Next month we'll be taking our bi-annual trek to NJ for Thanksgiving. In the past, I've relied solely on my trusty V1 on this trip, but now with POP and the fact that I also have a X50, I would like to determine which detector/mode is best to use in each state.
Usually the route we take is:
NH to NJ: Route 3 to Mass Pike into/near Albany, then hit the NY Thruway to I-87 (I think) to the Garden State Parkway.
NJ to NH: GSP to I-287 thru NY to I-84 in CT to Mass Pike to Route 3 back into NH.
Since my V1 is not currently POP capable, I figured on using my detectors as follows:
NH: V1 in L mode
MA: V1 in A mode
CT: X50 with POP on, highway mode
NY: X50 with POP on, highway mode
NJ: V1 in A mode
Does this sound like a smart way to go? In CT and NY, am I more likely to encounter POP, or laser? I need to weigh between V1's superior laser detection against POP detection on the X50.
I hope to apply Veil and a Laser Shield to the front of my car before the trip as well.
