I live in Tacoma,Wa. and it has picked up 2 times Ku bands on the highway. Is there anything that would make it pick up Ku? I did have my nephews passport 8500 about 1 ft. away from it on Auto and X-band off and same for the Bell V995 and the V995 had a much better angle or alert times then the 8500 (not- X50). I am looking forward to this since I have heard rave reviews about the V995.
