So i took a class taught by a state trooper and i brought these up.
He said they do not work at all, the only time they pick up on the radar is after they already have your speed and are about to pull you over. He then said that even the police can turn them on and off at will. He said the only thing he knows of that can alert you when a officer is around is an IPHONE app call trapster or some ****. Look into it.

not true at all

I have an escort 8500 X50 and I have picked up Ka over 1 mile away

you have to know how to use the radar properly

at the sign of a first beep you need to know how to tell if it its a false alarm or a real radar.

the radar has saved me 3 times this month that I know of

once going 80 on the high way
75 in a 55
and once just 70 in a 65

they do work but they are not perfect
