Yeah, with Laser you're kinda pooched. Those things are usually on a tripod and can easily get a motorcycle 1,000 meters away.
Looks to me like now there's a x70 that's replaced that. I've also seen a x80 but haven't seen it available for sale. Just checking Amazon availability. Then I see there's a ix that's described as long range at near twice the price?*I couldn't be happier with how my x50 has performed over the years. I would never go on a trip without it.
I have no doubts that it's easy enough to get a ticket with a radar detector. But I went seven years with my old bel unit without a ticket while driving for my summer car a 350z. I was younger then I am now and less responsible. That bel unit has saved me countless times over the years. I know it takes discipline on all levels to avoid tickets but I do feel that a detector is a valuable tool to have. I've pretty much made up my mind to roll with one on my bike. Even if it's just wiring in a adaptor for the old bel unit. I know they're not a failsafe and not to rely on it, just another little bit of help.*Instant on radar is hard to detect. Ask my buddy with an expensive detector.
Just don't speed anywhere with a 1K sightline!Yeah, with Laser you're kinda pooched. Those things are usually on a tripod and can easily get a motorcycle 1,000 meters away.
Thanks for the info. Got mine today. On sale at visions dot ca. Did not buy the alp ...lol.Lots of good advice here. For now, the king of distance and filtering at the moment are the Uniden R series detectors; they also come with a 3.5mm input so a bluetooth transmitting dongle will work well with *some* BT communication systems.
As for laser, your only real defense outside of smart riding is an ALP. Big $$$.
R1. Upgradeable firmware. Lots of settings. Setup for BC from kmph.ca.* Which model did you opt for if you don't mind me asking? *The r1? *I find the amount of different model/choices somewhat overwhelming. Visions looks like some decent pricing.*
Kmph lists the best settings for BC for various devices. I copied their suggestions. I don't really want to spend a lot of time fooling with it.So it comes from visions set up by kmph.ca? *
