My Own Radar Detector Test
Ok, so I just bought one of those new Cobra radar detectors from Best Buy the other day for like $80. Anyway, although I wasn't expecting much, I decided to test it out. X band pick-up is a bit low, I'd say about 50-60 yards away before I picked it up. Then we went hunting around for a cop to see if he'd sit somewhere. We snagged one just leaving Hardee's and asked him if he'd sit somewhere in town with his radar on. Surprisingly enough, he wasn't an ass about it and went and sat. Picked up his K band at 140-150 yards. This was while he was obstructed. If he had actually been driving on the road, I believe it would have been greater. Ka I haven't had a chance to test out yet, same with laser. So far, it works well for under $100.
