It dropped 1-3 times on my minivan soft leather, its the caravan sxt. It has somewhat cushion, but it is still solid.
I drove 660 miles from alabama to Michigan.
About 3/25 alerts were real.
Id get 5 second alerts, most of them would start at 7, and die down to 1 bar in about 1 second, and then they would completely dissapear, and it is frustrating, because the 40$ cobra that my mom would rather me have doesnt give these false alerts or whatever, and yes, i know its because of the range that sucks so bad lol.
Now its on stock settings, is instant-on on? I mean i went through that really big city in southern tenesee, it showed a FULL 7 bars of X about 10 times in 10 minutes and each warning lasted 3 seconds.
I got a warranty at best buy, should I try to return it, and see what they say? I mean I read so many reviews on how this thing has filtering, but I dunno, it could be because I dropped it, or because instant on is on as stock settings.
Im just desperate for comfort on its broke, or bad luck, or instant-on.
(no access to it right now, so all I know is I use Auto, and its not been ez programmed)
