    Default Re: My New Cobra XRS-9990 Has Arrived!

    A couple of observations so far:

    1. Ka band false alerts. There are tons of them.....34.3, 34.7, 34.9, 35.5. I probably had 10 or so today in about 3 hours of driving. They're not as annoying as they are on a Whistler though, since they don't come at full blast(Ka9), but they still happen a lot.

    2. I don't think there's any way to turn X and K band totally off. I have it in "city mode X+K", but any strong X or K signal overrides the suppression of the signal via city mode.

    3. So far, this unit does seem to get the band right, so that's a positive over the last Cobra I tested.

    4. I have some nice Stalker II I/O action I have to edit the video on, so that should be in the video section sometime tonight.

    1) I rarely get them here quite frankly. They do happen on occasion.Don't use POP or spectre alert or vg-2.

    Do you have the feq. display turned on ?

    that is what I go by.

    Did you enable auto-mute ?

    voice on ?

    The voice is nice IMO

    2)yes x band can certainly be turned off as all the other bands can

    you want to look in your manual "page 16" and set up "intelli-mute" but not the "pro" version

    It is really wonderful when set right for the city.

    3. yes it does better as my whistler almost always falses k band to x band signals

    one thing I wished you would really test is laser performance if you have one

    people say it's pretty good with it but it isn't used much in my area

    The "15 band" cobra model platform actually does detect radar and does decently against instant on. My XRS 9960G performs as well as my Whistler XTR-695(non SE). Of course, the STI-R blows it out of the water.

    Is the XRS-9990 a new unit or has it recently been discontinued? I looked on the Cobra website and it isn't listed and there are none for sale on E-Bay.
