GF an RD :0
Right after I got my V1 I gave my Cobra to my gf, and explained how it worked and such. She said she understood, and then I got a call a day or so later, telling me that it didnt work(I know its a cobra just stick with me for a bit). She explained that an ambulance came flying down the road with its lights on and the thing didnt make a noise, I told her again that it only detects POLICE radar, not all emergency vehicles. She said she understood and we hung up. I got another call later that day with her saying that she went by a cop and nothing happened, I explained that it wasnt a cop detector it is a radar detector, if the cop is running his radar it will beep, "oh ok" end of that conversation. She called me back a little while later saying that it is alwaise beeping x band and there is no cop around, I told her about x band and how it isnt used in our area, again "oh ok I get it." end of that conversation. Anyone have these type of problems with their GF and Rd's?
Haha. Sounds about right.
Uh, she's YOUR gf...
Just a general question here...
Is she blonde?
Mine: "The printer won't print again."
I walk into the room, BOOM, printer prints!
Technology has a "programmed in" respect for testosterone... After all, most of this stuff is engineered by MEN, right?
Just keep answerin' her questions... Shows your listenin' They appreciate that!
And that's the most sexist stuff I ever say, and NEVER MEAN!

Well in my opinion, your certainly not helping your girl out by leaving 'X-Band' turned on then are you. Obviously she has little knowledge of how RDs work, and there YOU are making it even more confusing for her, probably slamming on her brakes every time she drives 10 feet and gets another 'X-Band' alert.

Not just wives or gf's. A lot of my friends just can not grasp the concept of detection radar.
Nope, I trained my girl well
**** my last 2 girlfreinds had top of the line Bel;s when i got in there cars new about them was surprised....
Then theres always the dumb people...guys and girls.
Guys, remember - we were just liek them at one time.
You didn't just wake up and know all you know now about radar detectors. Yeah its great making fun of them and picking on them. But common now - I guaranntee you if you walked up to a cobra owner - with results in your hands of the latest UNBIASED testing - they would be selling their POS before they got back in their car.
its a great story and my g/f is just starting to catch on. She just calls it "the beeper", and won't let her drive with it alone yet because I don't think she FULLY understands how it works, but she's getting there. Mainly from herself asking questions - why is it this - why isn't it now? This is a great hobby and fun that you can't push on somebody - if they want to learn they will. And his g/f is now.
Now christmas is commin in 3 months, get her a real fricken detector!!
