I've been thinking of upgrading my Passport 7500 to the new 7500S. One thing I've noticed is that the SmartCord, which is a must buy for convenience, has a tendency to crack and lose its rubber sheathing over time. Most likely this is due to the heat of the sun. If I get a chance I'll probably get one of those companies that do honda engine swaps to beef up my honda. That way I can get even more speeding tickets. :)
A little off-tangent today. I cracked the water pump in my car a few days ago. While I was looking for a good NAPA auto parts dealer on the web, I found a vendor in Canada that will give you a price quote with 24 hours on any part they carry. They also ship internationally. The name of the company is Big Dave's Auto Parts Store. Give them a look before buying any expensive parts for your car.
I found a great web site for information on radar detectors and radar detector detectors (that�s right, law enforcement devices that can tell if you are using a radar detector). The site is SpeedZones.com and they have one page in particular that goes deep into the nitty gritty of the spy vs. spytechnology battles between law enforcement and radar detector manufacturers. On this page you will find coverage of the annual detector test for 2003, fascinating information on the latest enforcement technologies including the hard to detect Bee III radar gun, the state of the art of the latest radar detector detectors, radar jammer testing and more. I definitely recommend giving this site a read.
If you have been looking for an excellent explanation on how radar detectors and jammers work, howstuffworks.com has an article for you. This article covers how detectors receive signals, how jammers jam signals, and compares the technology behind radar detectors to that of laser detectors (Lidar).
MotorTrend.com has posted an article with some solid information on laser and radar jammers. Pay special attention to the warning on using a radar jammer. It will be interesting to see how long laser jammers stay off the government and police agencies hot list for outlawed devices.
The Philadelphia Daily News does it again. They followed up the defective radar gun story with an article explaining what you should do if you get a ticket from a Genesis hand-held radar gun.
Here�s an article to make you worry or give you hope. An article on the web site for the Philadelphia Daily News, quotes a state police expert as saying that thousands of speeding tickets have been written with defective radar guns. So defective that the expert said �they would clock a roadside rock at 70 mph�.
I wish I had a cartoon of a rock on the witness stand in a court trial right now.
