Hi. Radar detectors do not sound whenever a police car or emergency vehicle is nearby. They only work if the police officer is using radar, and if he's within the range of your detector. Many states now use "LIDAR", which isn't detectable by many radar detectors.

Does not signal when police are near


Hi there,

This device is designed to detect radar and coherent light emissions on frequencies employed by remote speed measurement equipment.

If laser, the measurement equipment, must be in line of sight during an emission. If radar, detection of residual emissions can be made even in stand-by and from much greater distances. These are the ones you are more likely to ID in time to slow down.

Once you have been 'painted' by a laser, it's already too late.

As far as signaling when police are near, any ability to do this is by association only with the above stated equipment.

If there is another problem or your device is malfunctioning in some way, please resubmit the problem with a more detailed description of the problem.

Best regards
Mike

Doesnt detect cops


Radar detection is not an absolute...there are several factors to consider:

-Most radar guns have an adjustable "gain"...which means that if an officer is only checking speeds to vehicles close by, he or she has the option of turning down the power. This means that your detector may not pick up the radar until you are right on top of it, if at all.

-Many police agencies are using laser or LIDAR technology for speed detection. Even if your detector is able to detect laser, the detector will not "see" it unless the police officer aims directly at your detector. The laser beam is very precise, and is only the size of a penny on the target vehicle when the officer is 1000+ yards away. Since the officer is usually targeting your license plate (it is the most reflective, and therefore the best target), the detector on your dashboard may miss it.

-Many radar guns, whether handheld or vehicle based, have an instant on feature. If you are in a "radar detector friendly state", the officers in your area probably use this option so they don't give away their location to those with detectors.

If in doubt, you may want to check your detector in the same vehicle with someone who has a known working one. If their detector goes off, and yours does not, yours is likely defective.

What does VG2 mean


It is a radar detector detector. So if you are running a radar in a state where it is illegal, this technology can detect the presence of your radar detector and you can be pulled over and ticketed. This is done by detecting the local oscillators and other "RF leakage" from the radar detector.
Sometimes you may notice that when you are near another car with a radar detector, your radar detector may go off. There are situations where your own radar detector can detect leaking RF energy from another detector in a nearby car.

Cobra radar detector


Police usually do not leave their radar guns turned on all of the time. Indeed, most police officers prefer to use the "instant-on" technique to nab speeders. Instant-on works by leaving the radar gun in standby mode (no radar emissions) and then releasing a trigger button to instantly turn on the radar gun to measure a vehicle's speed.

You can check to see if your radar detector is detecting radar by putting it in Highway mode and then driving to a shopping center or other businesss location which has microwave radar automatic door openers. You should get either X band or K band alerts for these microwave automatic door openers. If you do not get any alerts for these door openers, and after having checked a few other locations which have microwave automatic door openers, then this would indicate that your radar detector is defective.

Pramming for cobra xrs 9330 radar detector


Here is a link to Cobra's RD product manuals page:

Cobra - Product Manuals

To the original poster, the officer could have used laser, vascar, or pacing to issue a speeding ticket. The officer also could have used a very quick burst of instant-on radar which Cobra brand radar detectors are notorious for not detecting. The officer also could have used a 35.5 Ka band radar gun. Cobra and other import brands of radar detectors usually have great difficulty detecting 35.5 Ka band radar.
