The KAT500 provides distinct visual and audible alerts to warn you of the presence of X, K, and all kinds of Ka Band radar guns in the front and rear of you. This model also provides the benefit of 'undetectability' by alerting you to the presence of VG-2 ('The Radar Detector detector'). It also incorporates a new safety feature, Safety Alert(SA) and Safety Warning System(SWS). This safety feature warns you of the presence of potential road hazards by detecting signals from safety radar transmitting devices.

I used to have a older version of Rocky mountain and it worked good so i bought this new one but buy.com sent me a wrong model number i test drove the radar but found no speedtraps so i went to this Gas station where my old radar and also my escort passport 8500 x50 gives a x radar alert so i took this radar to the gas station and yes it did give me a warning of x band and when i pressed the city mode the warning went away pretty small and light but long as it work i am cool thanks
