well, so far it beeps and carries on.... but not seen any coppers yet.... it picks up interference, especially around town from things like automatic doors, motion detecting cameras etc... however it does have a 'city mode' which reduces sensitivity quite a bit, to avoid those sort of things... will let you dudes know if it saves me from any fines! :cheers:

serious? thats a shitty one. that really limits positioning in most cars. thats dumb. you would think it could be mounted anywhere.. not needing clear line of sight.

yeah.... the ones that have sensors in bumpers etc are very pricey.... this basically sucks on to your windscreen...
