So I sent in my STi for the 33.8 fix and got it back 2 weeks ago. I tested it out before hardwiring it, with only the cigarette lighter plug in. It was visor mounted with the clip and I managed to detect cops before I could even see them and even detected some from behind.
Now I hardwired it through the fuse box because I was convinced it was working properly. So it's now hardwired (with the ext. speaker) onto my visor with the clip and a CD visor case over it to conceal it even more. Since then I detected only 1 cop at more or less 750 feet (he was doing a U-Turn and I only got 2 bars on him) and I've seen like 20. I dunno what the hell is going on, if the cops are just leaving their radars off or my STi is messed up. I reset it and tried it without the CD case over it and same thing.
I live in Toronto so I dunno, do they usually leave their radars off? I go down the same roads that I detected previous cops and not even one burst on Ka band, I get plenty of false alerts on K band as usual. What do you guys think :?:
