& (Technically) No tickets.
Well.. I have gotten a pace ticket.
I've also gotten pulled over from a K-band shot. I was being lazy & just let off the gas.. which wasn't enough. He let me go.
& well... I got pulled over another time & the LEO said he got me w/laser from behind. (good luck avoiding that)
At that time i had the RD mounted way high & slightly tucked in front of the RVM (don't do this btw) - He let me go.
I've since located my 695 to the center 1" to 1.5" below the mirror - IMO this might be the best location.
Speaking of mounting locations i've found mounting (high) to the right of the mirror just doesn't seem reliable. I think mounting (high) to the left is probably ok but i can't really do that in my current car + i like it to be in quick visual shot (not above my head) - Another factor is the difference or curvature in glass when mounting high.
I put in an order yesterday for a Pro 78SE.
Yeah i thought about the 695SE or 690SE but their availability combined with the extra cost just doesn't seem worth it. Numbers talk too. Not looking to be unique i'd rather have a RD that has been manufactured & sold more.
The videos users have posted here certainly helped my decision.
There was a time i was thinking about other brands & models but in the (new) ~$200-$250 price range there isn't much out there. + Some of them are old & lack newer features anyways.
I noticed the 68SE
Call me crazy but i actually like the multi color Icon setup. Color doesn't play much roll in my selection but this appears functional. My guess is that is a very visible straight forward setup. I think i might actually prefer it over the blue of the 78SE.
If that had all the functionality of the 78SE i would've bought it instead. Although the most major missing part might be the inability to 'ID' in RSID/LSID. No mention of Ka/Max & I noticed they don't have a manual up for it yet.
