If it's IR laser there are countermeasures for that as well.

If your that worried - dont speed. Obviously, it is not worth it. Cops move. Radar equip vehicles - move. They can get you coming and going. Radar can be in "Stand by" mode until the speeder is spotted. Then, with a flick of a switch, it is on, and you, regardless of what brand of detector you have, are caught.
Yeah I've tried a few of those "Cop Detector" apps, and they are all CRAP....like someone mentioned earlier in this thread, it only shows cops that people have reported and uploaded to the app....GAY
But I love the app called PoliceStream.....have you guys tried it?? I used to listen to an identical app on my ex's iPhone and its awesome.....you can listen to police scanners from like all over the country and a few around the world....its pretty cool to listen to Brooklyn's police officers live on the scanner..
One of my fav is the ringdroid app. Lets you take any song and trim to the parts you want. There is a game called tower raider that I have trouble putting down. Another one is called voice recorder. You can make messages and use them as alarms, ringtones, or whatever. Thats just some of my favorites. I put a bunch of other crap on my phone that I have to take off. I have only had my phone for a month too. If you find any other cool ones let me know. Later.
Yuk! Yuk! Yuk! Duh, here,
POP is a mode where the gun is powered up and immediately used to record speed. It has been found by the courts that unless a gun runs for 30 seconds after it's powered up it is not accurate enough to be admissible in court. Warm up time is the layman's term. Sheesh Dude!
When they use Radar you can pick it up far enough ahead unless they POP you.
So they thought they would sit there with it switched off and get a bunch of detector users but it was killed in court by too many disputes causing an investigation as to why and found the below.
One of the press quotes from the case ---
These officers did not know that POP mode was only to be used to obtain an "estimate of speed". This is why the National Highway and Traffic Safety Association and the International Association of Chief's of Police now recommend refresher courses for law enforcement personnel who operate traffic radar and laser devices.
I visit a Detector forum quite a bit and it's all there. And for you folks running Laser detectors, when it goes off just pull over. With a laser detector you gotta get lucky as in picking up fragmentation off another vehicle or the humidity and dust in the atmosphere. Unless you have a real jammer your screwed.
My Lidatek detects laser and pulses the same signals in return causing a false reading or a JTG (Jam to gun) code on the gun. JTG is not good in some states as it will tick the officer off but the Lidatek stops after 5 seconds and he gets a live reading and you will have hopefully brought her down to a legal speed by then.
I have done this MANY a time to go by the officer and see him lower the gun, pick a new target and lift it as I'm passing. Best money I ever spent.
You aint gonna get THAT on a Droid.
