    Default 1st night with x50 caught 5/5 speed traps with all 1+mile

    Last night was the 1st time I used my x50. I been checking out this sight for the past month and with post from the Gol guys and Radar roy I decided to go with the x50. So being new years eve the cops were out! So everytime I got a hit I rest my milage to track distance. 2 real speed traps where on k band and I got 1.2 and a 1 mile warning before I passed the cops. Didn't even see until I was right on the. Then my x50 caught 3 of 3 ka speed traps. One was from 1.5 miles away with the cop sitting on the opposite side of the road facing the other way! One 1 mile was under a over pass. The street goes down about 30 feet under a over pass and the x50 caught it! Last but not least my x50 picked up a 1.3 mile speedtrap with the cop sitting on the side of the road around a curve. Me and 2 cars were all ligned up going bout 60 in a 45. I got that 2bar ka band and hit the breaks. The civic and mustang flew by me. By the time I got to where the cop was he had the mustange pulled over. Yeah great way to start 2006! I got a little worried when everybody was bashing the x50 ka range before I bought it, but with a 1.5 mile detec, all worries are gone!

    The V-1 is suppose to be the better detector.

    For a 100 more it better be. I'm just saying that if the v1 can get a 2 mile detec on ka and my x50 can get a 1.5 mile detec, that's still going to be a hell of alot of time be able to slow down. Next time you out track and see how long 1.5 of a mile really is. You can be going 20 to 30 over and still have plenty of time to slow done to the speed limit.

    Its sure is nice to here that the X50 is still doing its job. I just wish I did not sell my X50.

    Do both of these detectors have the multiple alert detection the V-1 has?
