I'm a new Pro 78 Rev C owner as of today. It arrived in the mail just before I had to leave for work. Quickly installed it onto windshield and fired it up. Did not have time to adjust any settings, POP was on.
I have a 7 mile rural drive to work on a 2 lane road. About .2 of a mile before coming to another 2 lane road intersection, I received a Pulse alert for Ka. Looked around, saw no cop and immediately became pissed; thinking this thing was already giving me bogus alerts.
Well, as I approaced the intersection, saw State Police going northbound on the other road with Ka radar firing IO at oncoming traffice. I soon realized that the Pulse alert I detected was from him.
I'm going to keep this one in my truck and give older 8500 to other family member. Pro 78 is best kept secret for budget detector.
