My friend just picked one of these up, are these Factory refurbs? It's a really clean new looking unit with a date code of 0711, comes in a white box, says 6 month factory warranty, has the mount, four suction cups and a non-mute power cord. Sold for $179, red display.
But...here's the kicker...the unit is completely dead to K-band. I've been blasting his car from 1/4 mile down to 15 feet with my Bushnell Velocity, even drove by a few school zones with K-band speed signs...still nothing. Haven't ran into any KA yet so we're not sure on that yet.
I did a reset, and the firmware revision is 6.5 with TSR. Tried different settings and it's still dead to K-band. This really makes me wonder if these are authorized refurbs from Beltronics because they wouldn't let something like this slip by would they?
