Important Information on POP
RADAR (BEE III DSP)
Please Read this before purchasing
any radar detector!
POP is a technology that has only been implemented by MPH
Industries. It was introduced on MPH's handheld radars in 1999,
and it has also been incorporated into MPH's newest dash mounted
radars. POP technology is aimed at an old police problem - defeating
the time of it's release in 1999, MPH's exclusive POP technology
was the only radar technology that could measure a vehicle speed
without setting off any radar detectors. This technology was made
possible by MPH’s expertise in manufacturing microwave sources that
can turn on and stabilize quickly and by digital signal processing
(DSP) techniques. The radar can obtain a speed reading in milliseconds.
The NEW "POP" Bee III DSP Radar
When the MPH radar is placed into POP mode, the radar emits a short
burst of energy and quickly measures the vehicle's speed. The radar
then goes immediately into standby and displays the obtained speed
for a couple of seconds. The entire measurement happens so quickly
that the no radar detector in 1999 could detect it with any accuracy.
However, it is recommended that any police officer using POP radar
only use it to obtain an estimate of a vehicles speed, then switch
to normal mode to obtain the exact speed. The reason for this is
POP radar is not 100% accurate and therefore police should not be
able to write you a ticket based solely on a POP radar reading.
Because of this we believe POP radar is not something you should
worry about and POP radar detection is not something you should
look for in a radar detector. In fact, most radar detectors that
detect POP radar have the POP radar detection turned off by default
as it just increased the false alerts you can receive with any radar
