Wanna know something funny these cops in nyc got nothing better to do, than picking on me. I live couple blocks away from the police station and they give me a speeding ticket on my block doing 56 on a 30 zone. Like are you serious, 56mph!!! I was just warming up the tires officer.

Was it lidar or radar?

I got two tickets this week as well because my radar detector broke down and I didn't realize it until I got the second ticket. Both of mine were around 20mph over.

On the second one the idiot wrote my plate as Minnesota instead of Montana and my car model name as M3 instead of M5. I'm going to humiliate the guy in court. I will ask the question of how are we supposed to believe he can read a radar gun, when he can't even read a license plate which has considerably larger characters!

Radar. Mine didn't go off until we made contact. 2 lane back road both coming from opposite directions.

Was this the V1 or the Escort which let you down?

Then how did he get your speed? Pacing or instant on?

Instant on is my best answer.

Deadly threat, although I have found that the Stir+ with band segmentation does pretty well against instant on if you know what to look for (blips a mile in advance). Passport max doesn't stand a chance against IO. Can't comment on V1 but your story would suggest it isn't up to the job either.

In principle the Stinger VIP with its patch antenna would be good against instant on too because a patch antenna can scan all bands simultaneously and therefore pick up blips that get lost in a sweep. Unfortunately Stinger isn't in the US. I emailed them last week offering to be a paying beta test customer for their product in the US.
