    Yeh. The v1 has laser detection. I find it stupid for the aforementioned reason.

    Man, it's good to have a cop in the forum - straight answers, direct from the source.

    As for what they were doing, it really seems like they were testing. Not sure if they'd have uniformed officers doing such, but I really don't know enough to be able to comment on that one.

    Michael's right about the technology though - something has to be emitted, bounced off the moving object, and detected (and therefore measured). If the emitting device can detect it, then something else (ie: a radar detector) can and will be built to do just that.

    Bottom line is that it's a cat-and-mouse game. The authorities have to stay ahead of the bad guys, and the market has to keep up with emerging technology. If there is something new, there will soon be something to combat it, and then there will be something new to out-do that, and the circle will continue.

    I'd say they are testing something new as well. It happened to me too about a week ago. About a year ago I was getting laser from moving cars, so I'm just totally confused.

    This is exactly what I was told by one of my FHP buddies that I was talking to last week. He stated that these new guns will render all the current detectors nearly useless.

    They may have been running some kind of certification class with the new radar guns. Cops have to be certified to run the Radar equipment (and recertified within a certain time period). I dunno but it could be possible.

    Don't know for sure but one possibility is Ultra Wide Band (UWB). My company has been looking into using the to do range-finding. They work really well on large hunks of metal. One of the appealing aspects is that they take little power and work well on big hunks of metal.

    I don't think a radar detector would pick up UWB.

    got pulled over, radar detector didnt even beep.

    Hey, just wanted to let you know I got pulled over in Clearwater on Saturday on my way home from work. I was south on US 19 going over the overpasses... the jerk was on the grass just waiting in his unmarked black car. I saw him at the last second and my radar detector which has never let me know, didnt make a beep. I got pulled over... 65 in a 45 even though ive never been pulled over before, and i never go more than 5 over the limit... $266 fine. Im going to call and make a court date. UGH.

    Wow I can tell you don't keep up with law, well at least tickets. All you do is pay a traffic ticket lawyer $65.00 and they will drop the ticket. If the cop shows up then usually it will go to trial, but thats very rare. I have built in radar, I also use odd methods, like ghosting (where you drive next to a speeder and imitate his speed but stay back alittle so it seems like he is going faster), also if your a guy, use the Gay routine. Using ghosting I have avoided being pulled over 6 times, because the other car will hit their brakes when they see the cop. The gay routine has worked 2 out of 3 times. The one time it failed it was because the cop was a girl.

    lmao. wtf is the gay routine?

    Also I dont see the point of fighting the ticket. You even said yourself you were going 65 in a 45, that is speeding fair and square. Pay the ticket like a man.

    And I really am curious about what the gay thing is about? You try to flirt with the guy cop, or hope that he doesnt give you a ticket because it wouldn't be PC or something?
