Some of you are probably already aware that I have an STi-R+ and i'm coming to terms with Autolock and the challenges that go along with making it work properly. I have been searching everything I can find on the subject and taking it all in. There is one thing that I have found that keeps popping up in threads on this forum from intelligent sources.
The thing i'm talking about is got to do with shutting the unit down after you lock out a false and driving a mile away before turning it back on.

I always like to manually lock out falses when I pass them -- as long as the actual false alert source isn't really close to the road. If the source is really close to the road such that its signal is really strong when you manually lock it out, then the 9500ci will set a very large lockout radius. The way I handle roadside false alert locations is to manually lock out the signal as I approach from both directions, locking out the signal when it hits a signal strength of 2 or 3 using bar graph display. When I do this type of manual lockout, after each pass I drive for another mile and then power cycle my 9500ci using its power button. Power cycling commits the lockout data to memory and takes the 9500ci out of "learning" mode for the lockout location.
The segment size should be identical regardless of using auto or manual lockout modes.
I'm a dumb ass and don't get what that this does. Would some one be so kind as to tell me what this does please?
