Just took a 600 mile round trip from LA to Mammoth with the XTR-140. Both my myself and my wife were VERY impressed with this $40 detector. Had at least 4 Ka saves (CHP) and 2 K saves (Bishop PD). I must say, the CHP was out in full force this weekend, but the XTR-140 saved the day. Definitely wouldn't have seen them without it.
We did have a rather interesting encounter with a CHP cruiser along Hwy 395 though. We had just passed about 4-5 slower cars in a particularly hilly section. Upon cresting one of the hills, we saw a CHP cruiser sitting in the median about a 1/4 mile away (maybe less) pointed in our direction. We immediately hit the brakes and dropped to the PSL. We know he saw us as he turned his head and stared at us as we passed. It had to have been pretty obvious that we hit the brakes, but he didn't bother to pull us over.
The XTR-140 didn't make a sound, so I doubt he had his radar on. Could it be that he was using I/O, and we out-braked him? I'd think the detector would have gone off if that were the case. Maybe the traffic behind us didn't allow him to pull out and go after us? I'm stumped, anyone have any theories?
Oh, and he couldn't have been using laser as all his windows were rolled up.
