I recently got my Camry fully loaded (Passport 8500+Blinder M20+Veil+laser shield), and took it on a trip from Florida to New Jersey. Thinking I'm (almost) fully protected to start with, my observations along the way really got me worried about my investment.
The detector did alert me of a trooper parked under an overpass and operating a radar gun. HOWEVER, along the way I saw at least ten cars pulled over by the trooper, yet not a single time did the detector alert me of the presence of a radar gun or the trooper: no prior alert, not even when I was driving pass the trooper's car!
And this brings up two concerns for me:
1. If the troopers were not using a radar/laser gun, how were they doing their job? I mean, how did the troopers nail those speeders?
2. If, based on my personal experience, the troopers are not using radar/laser gun as their primary weapon, then what's the point for all our pricey gadgets? It costed me more than 700 dollars to get my car "loaded!"
Am I the only person to worry about this?
