Test Day #1 – 09 JAN 05 - (Las Vegas,
NV to Phoenix, AZ)
We departed one day early from the
Consumer Electronics Show -
where we show-cased the
product-line in conjunction with
Blinder Xtreme's M-20 & M-40 laser jammers and
Xtreme Motorsportz -to begin our
Blinder CES Crew
Our trip originated at
Michele's French Country Cottage,
the only bed & breakfast, of which we
are aware in Las Vegas, NV.
Michele was a wonderful hostess who
prepared fabulous breakfast cuisines
every morning for us during our stay for CES. If
you are looking for a quiet stay in
Vegas, this B&B is a must stay.
We got on the road at 0930 and
proceeded south on Route 93 towards the
Hoover Dam on our way to our first
destination – the outskirts of Phoenix,
AZ for a meeting with
Craig Peterson of
RadarTest.com, a leading radar detector
authority and automotive journalist.
Route 93S on way to Hoover Dam
On this initial testing day, we placed
all three radar detectors equally spaced
across the windshield. Our reason for
doing this was not to really compare the
radar detecting performance of each - in
an absolute sense - but more to get a
feel for the ergonomic differences that
exist between all three.
During this part of our trip there were
no encounters worth mentioning and again
all with three radar detectors all running
would tend to discount absolute
performance in this environment.
We actually began to carefully examine
the performance capabilities in the
subsequent days of this comparison.
Overall they seemed to get along
together quite nicely - a testament to the
advanced shielding employed by these
radar detector designs.
During our visit with Craig, he gave our
set-up a look over and recommended, for
our driving route, to set the Ka
operation of the RX65 to USA mode. Who
were we to argue?
