    Default V1 Ka Pop vs. X50 Laser

    some guys are putting down the v1 for not detecting Ka POP but...

    didnt the X50 not detect a certain laser in JammerTest.com?

    On the '05 SML test, the X50 rarely detected laser at all

    Considering with out any real counter measures, you aren't safe with either detector durring laser alerts. And it the cop is at 500ft a vigilant driver could easily spot the cop.

    Only real way to defeat laser is with a jammer and with some cars without VEIL the jammer will not save you over 1000ft and sometimes even bleow 500ft....To truly be safe from laser you need Jammer, VEIL, Laser sheild and black headlight covers. The V1 alone isn't enough

    Its like I always said SML is one of the only tests that I trust.

    For me its not a matter of trust. I don't really think any of the testers out there are intentionally trying to mislead us... for me it is a matter of how the test is conducted and how relevant I feel it is.

    I really like how jammertests conducts its tests and videos them and shows the videos for all to see. Agree or disagree with their methodology or their results, I like the openess.

    With SML all I've ever seen is a little blurb on how tests were done and a chat of results... in the case of this year, I think the tests were almost entirely meaningless due to the testing proceedure.

    With the exception of the KA and Laser testing..... none of the other radar detection testing really moved me.

    True the x50 did not detect laser 100% of the time. But if you receive a laser alert and you do not have a jammer then that beep just tells you that you need to pull over and get out your wallet. However pop radar can be detected in time to check and adjust your speed if necessary.

    This is mostly true, unless it's shot from an overpass and you have time to pull off the highway and disappear before you get pulled over.

    If you watch some of the test runs in Outrun's videos:
    http://www.jasonsvideoproductions.co...uysoflidar.htm

    You'll see that in many cases, with just passive countermeasures (VEIL and/or Laser Shield), a driver could have a number of seconds to slow down after being targeted, before a speed reading is obtained on the gun. But in order to slow down, of course he has to know he's being targeted.

    The X50 did not detect "Stealth Mode" which is a jammer-defecting feature of some Laser Atlanta guns. These laser guns are on the streets but in very few numbers, and use is concentrated to certain areas (mostly Georgia I think?).
