As many of you know, I have a 8500 X50 and a STI Driver.
Here's the problem. When I run both in the car, LO leakage can interfere and produce stupid results. The STI driver keeps falsing on X band with the 8500 running, but the 8500 has no clue that the STI has going (no leakage of course). When I run the STI in auto though, it silences itself.
ANYWAYS, here's my problem. I am heading for a 500 mile drive soon. I know the STI has superior laser detecting capabilities and would like to use BOTH on my roadtrip with the STI ONLY as a laser detector.
If I turn off ALL radar bands on the STI but leave LASER on, I would imagine there are no devastating results unless the noise floor is raised?
Ideally, because the STI does "not" leak, I SHOULD be able to leave it, even with all radar bands on, but the question of the NOISE floor and maybe even just ambient LO leakage can reduce the 8500's detection range? (Being only 1 feet away from each other)
When I go back to Ontario and have the STI driver hidden, can I turn off all 8500 Radar bands and have 0 LO leakage so the SPECTRE can't pick me up? :roll: :roll: :roll:
