So as many of you know the GOL results came out. For those of you living under a rock: Radar Detector Tests and Reviews by Guys of LIDAR (jk they just came out) Radar test is at the bottom of the page.
They did a small test with radar which included the pro 78 with rev C.
So I first saw the Ka results. I look at the numbers and see that the pro 78 performs a good amount lower than the others. At first I am a bit disappointed, but then I think... First of all the numbers we are seeing are surrounded by the big dogs. Right above it we have a $1600 RD and below it a $400 (and thats street price). So the first thing I thought to myself is that I can't compare the 78 to such expensive RDs, the 78 is suppose to be weaker. But that still doesn't make me feel much better. So, I lunched up Google earth and got out the ruler tool. I measure up 500ish feet at certain points along my daily commute. And then I finally realized, these are great results. Try it yourself.
The K results are a different story and I guess this is just one situation that you would get a crappy alert and you would probably see the LEO before an alert. But remember this is forward facing, so even in this case you are most likely still ok.
Anybody else have any comments?
