ok i just did half of my 1200 mile run. POP off, SWS off, x/k/ka/laser on, autoscan.
about 20 minutes after i started out the STI picked up K band where it should at the gas station. it alerted instead of being silent like it did on the last run rather than wait 300-400ft. good.
10 minutes later it picked up Ka band (NY patrol car). I then went by a gas station and it said Kay.... and then went dead silent. The red light on the smartcord still flashed ok..but then it flashed continously well past the radar source. I shut it off with hardwired kill switch, turned it on -- no startup beep, no noise at all. flashed when detected another radar source.
400 miles later -- nothing. still flashed on radar, no voice at all, no alert sounds.
next morning i switched it on and it beeped. correct identified X band radar source, then K band gas station. Then the Ka tone came and it went dead silent again. now its completely dead silent. i'll remoe it from its hiding place and reset it and see if that fixes it or return to bel.
