After reading Happy A$$' comments about his feeling that the V1 had better range on K and X mode, I decided to drive through false alley again.
False Alley is a street in my neighborhood I drive through every day. I've driven through with an X50, an rx65 a V1 and now the 9500i.
All three of the traditional detectors alert to the same three falses at roughly the same location on the street.
1. CVS (K)
2. Car Dealer (X)
3. Grocery Store (K)
The Rx65, V1 and X50 all alert at roughtly the same place (within about 100 feet of each other) to these threats.
Today, I turned off GPS filtering and set the 9500i into H mode.
False 1 didn't alert until I was right on top of it. K-Band
False 2 alerted as normal X-band
False 3 didn't alert at all.
I only did one run of this scenario, but I'd have to say based on this it definitely looks like sensitivity is reduced with this unit.
Later today I'll try a more scientific approach and do multiple runs with first the 9500i then the v1 against the same falses and see how they compare distancewise.
