    What you fail to realize is this: If you left your Radar gun on you could effectively slow down RD users for a longer period of time, then your instant-on bursts.


    Lets say person 'A' is speeding with a high-end radar detector on the NYSThruway. They are going 78 in a 65. Flow of traffic is normally around 75MPH. If you leave your radar gun constant-on, and the person picks you up from a 1.5miles away: You have effectively slowed that driver down for 1.5miles (giving them time to slow down gradually and move over slowly), and made him/her alert (aware) to a possible situation on a road ahead.


    On the other hand: You can use instant on where you do not slow them down until the last instance: They will hit their brakes more aggressively. (creating a dangerous situation because of your instant on blast). You can either ticket them, which again there really is no proof that they won't speed right back up after that...


    Basically the use of Instant-On is for the sole purpose of money making, it does not slow people down for any period of time, which should be your main goal in safety enforcement.
    What you fail to realize is that the only way to slow some folks down is to hit them in the pocket.

    You admit that you will blatantly break the law when you think we're not around. That is more dangerous to me. If I jack you for a couple of bills then you will drive the speed limit ALL THE TIME because you won't know where we're at......... :shock:

    What I find interesting is some of the videos. Not so much the static tests of jamming a radar gun, but the videos of those who have the camera running in the car and happen into a LIDAR trap...er...an officer doing speed enforcement using LIDAR. The person on the video jams them, passes through, then comes back to run the LIDAR again. It's like flying Iron Hand or Wild Weasel missions...er..without the missiles.

    After I got a $600 speeding ticket that didn't make decide to never speed again, it's actualy what got me started using RD's. I'm sure I'm not the only person that's had this same thing happen to them.

    Also there are some other black market dealers that have been using the names of authorized dealers on auction sites. Be sure that they are the real deal before you waste your $$$.

    If you have a link to this Crutchfield deal, please PM me and I can check it out.

    Here is one Ebay/Amazon dealer that recently got busted:
    Escort radar detector dealer busted
    If I could get this thread back on topic, I was referring to the detectors on Amazon that are sold BY Amazon. I assume that Amazon itself is an authorized seller. I wasn't talking about any Amazon "store" and yes, Esoterica and some of the other big ones are actually on the UNAUTHORIZED list over at Beltronics, so it's fair to assume they're not authorized by Escort either. The $270 price was actually Amazon itself, not a "store". I don't mean to jump in your face, haha. I just don't want everyone thinking I'm an idiot and suggesting people buy from unauthorized sellers. I would never dream of it.

    Wow, that's weird. You would think a highly reputable business selling them would be authorized? I guess I am a moron then? Disregard my posts in this thread, please. Sorry, Roy.
