    Default instant on k

    Driving in a subdivision today, I picked up an instant on k radar. I received the alert 2 seconds before I saw the cop...a full blast on K alert--scared the s___ right out of me. I was not speeding at the time.

    Basically, this goes to show you the validity of what some people here are saying, which I agree with

    Instant on can get anyone at anytime with any radar detector--you just hope the cop gets the guy ahead of you--if there is one at all.
    Also, you hope you are picking up some signal of the instant on before you see him. For me, I was lucky because there was someone ahead of me. However, I received very little warning becuase there was very little traffic on the street, and therefore the cop was not triggering the radar very frequently at all.

    Just a friendly reminder to the RD masses...
