I stopped using radar detectors back in 2000-2001 because I had a $500 unit (can't remember the name) I was cruising down the highway at night and once the car in the oncoming lane got close and my detector started showing close proximity and 2 seconds later I get hit by his gun. He pulls me over and says " You know those dont work if my radar gun is off, right?" What he did was kept his radar gun off until he was 100feet away and turned it on and hit me with it... Needless to say I got a speeding ticket and sold the dam thing to pay for my ticket

Of course technology for these might have gotten better but I don't see how a radar gun could ever be detected if its off.

The power is on, it's in standby, and the antenna that transmits and receives the Doppler signal is only turned on when the operator sees a violator; since the speed of sound is a little more than 700 miles per hour, the return to the counter unit is displayed before the processor in a radar detector can detect the signal, give an audio or visual warning and the violator's reaction time causes him to apply the brake and slow to a speed that would prevent him from being identified and stopped, given the operator chooses to make a stop...

X, K, and KA bands are old school. New laser or LIDAR technology is wicked fast and pinpoint accurate, but often cost prohibitive to smaller agencies.
