i got a 8500 for almost a year. For the 1st half year, it worked great for me.... i mean, i can go around 90 or even near 100 and still comfortable enuf to drop back to speed limit when the detector alerted me...
however, the 2nd half year was bad... i got nailed twice...
the first one was juz my mistake, i think...
i was doing near 100mph, and my detector alerted me with a loud beep and 'laser' on the LED. i gave a pretty hard brake... but the officer still pulled me over and gave me a 20 mph over limit (65mph) ticket...... well i think i deserved it anyways.....

after that, i have been being very careful and seldom go over 80 mph. However, in my recent trip going back from toronto to Wisconsin Madison, i got nailed on I-94. It was in Michigan. The limit there was 70 mph.... i was going at 85 mph, sharp, cuz i used the cruise control. The detector beeped and i gave a slight brake. I was able to get down to 70 in very short time.... However, the officer pulled me over and said i was going 84mph!

Hell, did the cops get sth new or juz me? i juz dun believe in radar detectors anymore. i am in points trouble now. I have been driving like an old lady since then.....

My concern is, in these 2 cases, the detector shown 'laser' instead of K or Ka as they were in the past. Can someone tell me wat;s wrong???thx for input
