Default Radartest.com review of iQ is misleading

Wow, just read the totally misleading review of the iQ on radartest.com.

According to Craig Peterson, world's most incompetent radar detector authority, the iQ doesn't have ANY audible band identification to denote what signal is received. He says a generic chime occurs, then a female voice identifies the signal, THEN SILENCE. DID this guy even use the iQ????

Secondly, he incompetently says there is no variable beep frequency to give the proximity to radar. He incompetently says you have to look at the screen to see that, there's no way by the audio to know.

This guy is an idiot.

Come on BigAl..........cut the man some slack. He's obviously got a learning disability. It's been almost 20 years and he still hasn't learned how to program a V1. Let's give him at least 20 with the iQ......maybe he'll figure it out.

It would be a shock to learn that he ever really used it. I think he made it all up.

That's hilarious. He writes on his website that "other" famous reviewers just cut and paste one review into another (I have to assume that's RR as I've seen proof of it) and yet he obviously never had one or at least never figured out how it actually worked before writing his review.

I have not seen a CP quote on Escort's main page in a while, now if they can stop from quoting that other embarassment we'd be free and clear of false testimony that diminishes the credability of their products.

You need to send in an audition tape of your best Billy Mays impression first.
