I have been happily using my old Cobra $150 for 5 years or so. No issue, it was sold as VG2 invisible and I have never had a problem until the past month. I realize from reading this board that time has passed me by and RDD technology has improved substantially.
I have been pulled over twice in the past month and both times the OPP officer demanded that I hand over my detector. Once on the 417 between Ottawa and Montreal and again on the 401 near Brockville. I refused and advised them that they must be mistaken. They demanded to search the vehicle and I let them do so having first hidden the detector on my person. They have probable cause to search the vehicle but that's it.
Both times they left empty handed and pissed off. Got a couple good lectures from guys young enough to be my sons. Time is running out for me as the warm weather is leaving me less places on me to hide the detector. I guess I will need to upgrade to something a bit more stealthy.
Does anyone know if the OPP have bought a bunch of Spectres or have I just been unlucky running into two of them?
