Running with my Pro78 today (Highway, POP off, Filter 2) and the weirdest thing happened...I was on a two-lane back road running PSL of 55mph. All of a sudden a vehicle came up behind me and obviously in a hurry because he started riding my a$$...well the reason I wasn't running a little faster is because my Pro78 started with a steady K-band alert and I thought a LEO was in the area. After 2 miles and a few heavy curves, I knew something was not right.
The vehicle was an "Infiniti", which I know can give false Laser alerts due to that system they are running that detects other vehicles around you or the cruise control system- But...there is always a but...he had some POS detector that was silver and black in color with black suction cups and the power cord attached to the front, left hand side of the unit...probably some "early warning" QVC speical, but I can't confirm that for sure. All I could see was from my rear view mirror sitting at the red light. At least he had it mounted level!!
So I started scrating my head wondering what was going on. The closer he would get to me the stronger the alert, then he would back off in preparation for a run on passing me and the alert would get weaker. We stopped at a red-light, and with him directly behind me, I got a full strength of 9. I turned, he went straight, and the k-band alert went away.
Assuming it was his detector leaking like crazy, how in the world can it not set itself off!!!!??? You would think with such a nice car, he could splurge for something a little better that what he found for $49.95 while channel surfing! :roll:
Anyway, I hate crappy detectors and if it was the Infinity, I hate them too!!
Ok...all better now. Thanks! :wink:
