(More customer reviews)This is my first detector after a couple of speeding tickets. Been pretty comfortable with this for the past 1.5 yrs now - 2 close shaves where the detector alerted me about radar guns - Ka band.
Detects any gun presence at least one fourth mile before, just enough time to ease off the gas.If you are just above the (SpeedLimit + CopToleranceInYourState) this will surely help!!But do NOT for one moment think that if you are 20-25 mph above the posted speed limit on a highway, you can escape a speed-gun using this model.
After battery goes down, battery comes on after some time even if offline and works for a half hour or hour more! - Solar power or heat based recharge, perhaps.
I am not sure if the Lidar detector even works, I have experienced the L band going on a couple of times per year.. But false positives, maybe, as I had not seen any cop anywhere nearby.
One gripe is that the holder is flimsy, since its metal against plastic and there is car vibration, it becomes loose within a few months of use. But easy to add some homespun rubber/plastic padding or some sort of exterior clamp to hold the detector to the metal bracket.
Update: Battery lid broke off after 2 years of use (so not using rechargeable power batteries or offline mode tho' it should not be difficult to whip up a lid/contact)But am still using this with just car battery power source (3 yrs now) with no speeding tickets (touch wood)
