So you are still willing to speed when there is a 50% chance of getting caught?
Laser is line-of-sight only. If you slow down before cresting hills & scope typical cop hiding points, you'll be fine without a jammer. Typically, you should be able to identify a LEO and slow down before they can get a good read. Radar detectors are a godsend if you plan on speeding. Instant on radar is also line-of-sight, but a bit trickier to protect against than laser.

Screwed how? It's a perfectly legal device.

when i said 50/50, i meant if you encounter 100 police cars in my area clocking cars for speed, 50 of those cars would have radar and 50 of those cars would have a laser....roughly.

if you don't have a radar detector in my part of town and you speed, your odds are probably 1000 times higher you get ticketed than the smart driver who combines his brain with his superior radar detector.

do the math.

he probably knows that. he probably meant if you are speeding and you get caught using a detector, the mass police WILL issue you a citiation rather than another option, thus you are "screwed". his statement is just an opinion, it was easy to determine how he wrote it he didn't have the facts and was simply repeating what others have told him to say since no mass police has ever legally confiscated a detector in a traffic situation.

Virtually every officer in every state will issue a citation if they see a detector, so Massachusetts is no different than any state. Cops have an inferiority complex when it comes to radar detectors. They like to feel that they "beat" the plastic box on your dash.

X50 worked very well for K and Ka bands, that is when it worked! Most of the time it stayed in self calibration mode or service required displayed on the nice blue display. Laser detection was awful with a lot of false alarms to the extent that I would just turn the laser off.

What a disappointment and waste of money. Started failing right after the warranty had expired.

I bought one used a couple years ago. Worked great until, as another poster experienced, it started to give false laser readings all the time. I didn't realize I can turn laser off on it, so I'll have to look into that option until I can decide on a newer model to buy.

I'll also add that I bought the hard wire kit and have mine installed up near my rearview mirror. Barely noticeable from outside the car, and a cop can't see it looking in. Heck, most people that ride in the car don't notice it either.
