Pop Alert
Some radar guns operate in a POP mode so they can get a speed reading of a target vehicle extremely fast, resulting in most radar detectors not being able to consistently signal an alert. There are very few radar guns in service in the U.S. capable of POP mode operation. If your radar detector is Pop Alert capable, you may notice an increase in Ka-band false alerts when POP mode radar detection is switched on.

ok..

June 28, 2009

The radar detector works sometimes but my neighbor is a cop and we tested it out with his car and the range is mostly ineffective. i can see the copcar and and he can pick up my speed before it even makes a minor alert. but it is nice to have especially if you dont know a cop is around.
