Ok here we go, so im at radio shack about 2 weeks ago, and I'm looking at the radar detectors they got. I immediately get interrupted with.. "How can I help you with radar detectors". I had no idea how clueless this guy was until he starting talking. Basically all the detectors were either new cobras or a couple of whistlers. So I'm like well, I'm just looking at the detectors, I recently got a lasar ticket so I'm looking for the best radar detector out, and a lasar jammer. He goes well, the new ones can detect lasar or radar from up to 5 miles away! then hes like the new ones have 11 band technology. Hes like which one do u have? And I was like cobra xrs 9400, hes like well were already up to 9700. I was like no I dont want cobra at all. I was like no no no stop. no radar detector detects anything from 5 miles, and even if it did it doesn't matter lasar reads the speed too fast, you can't slow down with just a rdar detector. Then I was like have you ever heard of Beltronics? Hes like no, cobra is the best.. Did you know cobra came out with the first detector.. At that point I was like ok, this guy is beyong useless I gotta leave. I just left he was so clueless.
