Okay, Iím working on a new test/review.
This one involves the V-1 and k-band. The test will include all 3 modes, in city as well as on highway. The main purpose of the test is to see the effect that the ďautomuteĒ feature (7) has when being hit with strong and weak k band signals at given distances.
Iím putting this out to get the test parameters figured out and help avoid the ďshould have done this, or that.Ē
Once all the parameters are figured out, Iíll put it on an Excel sheet, for an easy fill in the blanks, so this test will be a little more structured. Any Excel pros feel free to offer your services.
Hereís a brief breakdown of the main points, and Iím sure the final tests will be very involved. Each test will include 3 passes and if any test has too large of a difference for these passes, then I will add passes or change location, since 3 passes should average out pretty close.
1. Open road test to determine max range of the radar gun Iíll be using, around an area with no falses. This will include all 3 modes with constant and instant on, along with specific distance tests with the Advanced Logic mode and different time limits on the automute. (5,15,30 second).
2. City test near falses to test all modes. With same time/distance parameters.
3. City test without falses to test all modes. Also same time/distance parameters.
As you see this will be a lot of testing, once you add up all the passes, and combination of modes, etc.
I will also detail what settings I have the V-1 on, and the radar gun used.
This is just a brief summary, so feel free to put your 2 cents in.
