Bad luck - it seems like superhet conversion, hence detectable in "radar-detector illegal" locations.
Another reason it's "meh". The part that's making me look cross-eyed is the fact that it only does this for the iphone in the first place. I mean is this intentially a product to make you wreck? I thought the point to it was to make it so while in the vehicle you can monitor just audiable tones and already-in-the-view large bright leds? So now, instead you can do 95mph, squint with your head down to see the iphone, making sure the coppers aren't on ya, while you run into the guy ahead of you.
I'm a month late to this one I know, but as I scrolled through to catch ones I might have missed, this one just boogled me.
