so today one of the big infiniti SUVs was behind me (QX?) i got laser alerts from my V1. it passed me soon, and my alerts stopped. this led to me experimenting with it a bit. i passed the infiniti so my V1 was at an angle to the front of the QX. what i found out is that V1 doesn't pick up on the laser if i'm behind the SUV, and it didn't pick up at an angle either.. is this because the beam is too narrow? i know that the closer the laser source, the narrower the beam. i was hoping V1 would still pick up on it though.
also, does this mean that if cops aren't shooting lidar in your direction, V1 would have a hard time picking it up?
example: cop shooting lidar at cars that already passed him (cars are driving away) vs. cop shooting lidar at cars that have not passed him. would V1 still pick up laser in the first case? i'll elaborate more if the text is confusing
