as far as I understand... the flat surface is important for lazer... much more so than normal radar... it's much more of a focused beam... so it reflects in a narrow "pencil" beam... so inorder to get a reading they need something as close to flat as possible... otherwise they won't get a reading at all...Gas Man said:That's a bit of :reading: but I wouldn't think it would cause any phycical heath problems....
As far as the flat surface... I believe they want that so that you can't agrue in-accuracy due to a refraction.
Next time I get pulled over I'll ask...(monthly) :lol: kidding....more like weeklyGas Man said:I have heard the same as well. Next time I see my uncle (Sgt of a police dept) I'll ask him.
well I laugh now cause I sold my truck... my old truck used to get me pulled over anytime I was out past 9... seriously... they just couldn't believe that it was street legal... Hight, Tires, lights, exhaust, ect... one thing they could never get me for was speeding... as that damn thing would only do about 55... down hill... with a tail wind... being pulled by a Semi:lol:Gas Man said:You laugh... I use to get pulled over at least weekly...when I owned a certain car... it grabbed way too much attn.
where do you have it mounted?SVupON1 said:best of the best of them all! Saves my @ss all the time! but as far as laser goes...they've gotcha for one while using laser, the cop must be parked when using his laser gun, he needs to hit a flat surface to be most accurate, he can not hit the winsheild or the laser will scatter and give back an inaccurate speed.
cool... I've been looking at them but wasn't sure which one to get... thanks:dthumb:SVupON1 said:they normally run $299.00, however where Escort bought out BEL which now owns BEL they took my old BEL as a $50 credit...so I got it for $249.00 directly from Escort.
ROCK ON:dthumb: :cheers:SVupON1 said:anything else will false detect.
Here are some links with the reviews. or just google, yahoo msn search "best radar detector: and you will see this one come back all the time.
