Not true. POP mode is more about one company's marketing campaign than being a real-threat in the real-world.
Even if you encountered POP in your travels, which I seriously doubt
, tickets are not legally issuable from them anyway and could be challenged on that basis.
Also realize, that driving with radar detectors in no way a guarantees that you won't, either.
To be perfectly candid, I have received two citations over the course of this past year (allegedly at some eye-popping speeds). And I suspect few, if any, have as many or high-end countermeasures as I do.
However, both speeding citations were from old-school techniques, called "pacing."
Yep, someone managed to follow me from a distance and "clock" my speed using their speedometer.
All of the best detectors in the world, can't not protect from that.
The best advice
I can give on how to drive with a radar detector is simply this. Drive like you didn't have one.
That bit of advice is based on literally hundreds of thousands of miles
driving with radar detectors for nearly three decades
Remember, a good radar detector is merely a tool
to help you assess your environment. That's it. If you rely too much on it, to save you, eventually the odds against you will catch-up with you.
Here's a useful primer on some of this enforcement technology. Police RADAR, POP RADAR: How they differ from Police LIDAR
PS: My suggestion is to leave POP OFF
