I had the Solo 2 for 1.5 years. However, it had one of those older-style suction cups that were too weak (they would melt) and so this summer my Solo 2 kept falling off the windshield onto the dash. I would remember to take the RD off, but on some days, I would forget.
Anyways, this last time that it fell, I put it the bracket back on the suction cups, turn on the detector and it powered up fine, no Self-Cal or anything.
I was beginning to think that this was one sturdy piece of electronics.
However, it stopped catching the K-band alerts from the "your speed" signs near where I live. This leads me to believe that something internally got messed up, or maybe miscalibrated. Actually, it hasn't detected anything fora few days now.
So a few q's:
1) Is there some sort of recalibration mode I could maybe trigger?
2) Does anyone repair these, and if so, how much does that usually cost?
3) Or is my unit hosed and should head for the trash?
