Well, my Whistler got its first SAVE today. On my way to work at 4:30 in the morning. Dark. I turned from Marksheffel Road (the North-South road on this pic) onto Woodmen (East-West). There's a known El Paso County Sheriff speed trap at the bottom of a hill about a mile after that intersection. It's tricky because it's about 200 yards after the limit goes from 55 to 45, and the cruiser is REALLY hard to see behind the bushes. I've caught myself speeding here a LOT -- just being careless at 4:30 a.m. and not slowing down when I should. The hill is more like a dip in the land...you're going level, then down about 100 feet.
I started getting K-Band with 4 bars on the meter about .6 miles from the place they park. I checked my speed -- 51, and I was just entering the 45. I dropped it to 44. The signal remained steady through a slight dip, then jumped up to 7, then to full strength just as I crested the hill. Sure enough, there was the LEO, right where I thought he would be. They hadn't been there for probably 5-6 months. Whistler held a steady 9 on the meter until I was past him.
So chalk one up for my new toy. That saved me about $80 and two points, though I don't know for SURE he'd have stopped me for 5-6 over....
Later, on I-25, a Lone Tree PD LEO was sitting in his Hummer H3, firing X-band at me. I got about a mile warning on him, but it was in a cloverleaf, so there was masking in the way.
