    Default How Far?

    How far does your radar detector pick up a grocery store in most cases if you are aiming right at the store entrance, Mine dont really start to go off unless im below 1,000 feet.

    Varies for me. Sometimes it's as close as 50-100 feet, other times it approaches a quarter mile. The latter case is rare, and only happens if I have a very direct view of the transmitter.
