As the first bond the cop were closing at 70mph towards each other) the V1 indicates the cop driving past me, but continues to show another signal still coming from ahead. Eventually the signal from the first cop weakens, but is still there as the rear arrow is lit up, and the forward arrow starts to flash showing that the bogey ahead is the stronger signal. At 82 miles on my trip odometer (another 2 miles warning) a state trooper drives by. Without the arrows I might have thought I was still picking up that first cop and had a false 2 signal reading from the signal bouncing off other vehicles or something like that.

Video of the encounter:

eye's forward!!

maybe it's my crappy laptop but that video took forever to spool up.
