Please everyone let's put the word out. Too many people are spending money for magic tricks. There is no magic, just common sense!
LEO = Law Enforcement Officer
A RADAR Detector will not in anyway protect you from LASER! Get over it, do not argue about it, anyone that says different is wrong , lying, misunderstood or was VERY, VERY LUCKY.
All LEOs do not run around with RADAR.
All LEOs do not run around with the RADAR on.
There is such a thing as Instant On Radar (I/O). This means it is off and then he sees you and then it is on. When this happens your RADAR detector will give you little or no warning.
There is such a thing as Continuous On RADAR (C/O). This means it is on all the time if LEO wants it to be. Sometimes LEO does not want it on or may choose I/O instead. C/O is your father's Speed Enforcement. You have new things to deal with now.
If your LASER detection on your RADAR detector goes off and you did not get a ticket, you need to go faster or you ran against a LASER false (yes they exist too).
Just because LEO pointed a SPEED gun at you does not mean your RADAR detector should go off. It could have been LASER. LASER is a DOT. If it was LASER and the DOT was not on your RADAR detector it, in all likelihood, will not go off. Also LEO may not have been pointing at you or LEO may not have pulled the trigger.
Do not test your gear with a LEO.
Do not leave your LASER countermeasure on during a contact.
There is much, much more to know but please take this class before you spend your money.
THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT:
Your friends know less about RADAR and LASER than the general membership of RADARDETECTOR.net
Just ask a question here before you make a fool out of yourself and state you are sending your RADAR DETECTOR back because...
YOU DID NOT READ THIS STUFF ABOVE THIS LINE.
