What i'm saying and i'm sorry if I wasn't clear in the first place, is that the Radar system that I have hasn't came out with anything new for years. So to me it's mind boggling in this age that this type of Technology is not improving.

I live in Alberta Canada so having a radar detector system is LEGAL...

So how about starting off new here and talk about the technology behind Radar detector systems.
Is it possible that sales have declined over the years as these become illegal in more areas. Those who might have otherwise spent time and money on the necessary research have found focusing on other types of devices more profitable.

The only place radar detectors are illegal in the US is Virginia...I'm pretty sure the other 49 states where they are legal more than make up for Virginia's laws.

Once I got pulled over for pacing a state trooper who was driving 15 mph over the limit (no lights/sirens) at night on an Interstate with very little traffic. I followed him approximately 5 car lengths back.

After about 10 minutes of this he slowed down parallel to me, shone his spotlight into my vehicle (nearly blinding me—rather dangerous while driving at Interstate speeds), and he accelerated again. I continued to pace him as before. After another few minutes, he slowed down significantly which I matched until I was almost at 40 mph. 40 mph is the minimum Interstate speed limit and I did not want a ticket for going too slowly. He got behind me, fired up his cherries and pulled me over.

"Do you have any idea how fast you were going?!!" he said angrily. "Gee, officer, I don't know. I was just following you," was my reply. "Well, don't do that!" was his retort.

He didn't like my V1 (calling me a "frequent flier"), but I knew he had to go away empty-handed. And, lo, he did.

Also illegal in all commercial vehicles over 10000 lbs under US federal law.

And there is a big market, or lost market, in many places around the world.

I like Germany where they are legal to own, but illegal to use in a vehicle.

I'm not saying the market is small, just that in tech there may be better opportunities.

They are not illegal in the states of TN and KY. Military posts, yes they are illegal, but I wouldn't consider those to be states.

Check my location and draw your own conclusion...I'm well aware of base regulations. Most people who have them just take them down when they get on base. Regardless, radar detectors are still very much legal in most of the US.

Re: Speeding Ticket !

There is nothing that I know of in speed detection technology that would have stopped your detector from being effective. I would think they paced you (using their car to measure your speed or they estimated it, using their eyes and experience.

LIDAR is the only speed detection that any investment is made as LIDAR jammers are effective in preventing a reading. The LIDAR makers keep coming up with newer methods to combat the jammers.
Radar is the same frequencies and technology that has been used for the past 15 years. X, K and Ka band are the most popular. The last major change to this technology was POP radar and like LIDAR, once you are hit, the detector will only be telling you that a ticket will be forthcoming.

Did you ask the cop how he got you?
Did he have a radar can fitted to his car ?

The 9500ci is still a top quality unit, but then you may not have fitted it correctly, so it will not be functioning correctly.

Sure if you count redstone as an actual base lol. My last duty station was campbell and my gf lives in huntsville. I know all about it. But from talking with cops in the tn and ky area they will write you a bigger ticket for having one. You tell my why they would do that?

Re: Speeding Ticket !

He more then likely gauged me on how fast i was going with his eyes. Like I said he was coming perpendicular to me and I know that Radar is 360 effective.

I did ask him how he got me and his partner told me with his radar in his car.. I didn't want to admit that my detector failed to pick him up. He would of had a blast with that .. So I didn't want to engage much into a conversation with him, I just let him write the ticket.

I really think there is a few glitch with my 9500CI since it's been picking up false positives like other radar detectors. and the distance has become shorter. i'm going to inquire if it needs calibration or something. It's mounted right behind my grill beneath the hood release latch. It worked great when I had it in my overland.

As long as this radar detection is legal, Innovations to it's technology should improve and keep with to be on par with the cops system. Better improving the game of cat and mouse.
