I think I read in another thread that someone mentioned that Escort told them that they made some updates in the programming to improve K band ramp-up.
Some of you may recall that I posted here about a month or so ago about my findings on truelock and how it subsequently blocked out a certain range in the frequency. That was backed up later by some tests by the professor. When I called Escort, they offered to replace the detector.
In my immediate area, Ka is most prevalent, so I haven't had a chance to regularly "re-encounter" K band sources.
Today though I experienced a CO K source that led me to believe that my replacement 9500i has marginally improved K band ramp up versus my previous unit.
If I were to rate the level of warning on a scale of 1-10 (10 being full alert), my past experience with the ramp up would go something like this.
Well today I was driving towards a CO source. THere was a fallen street lamp and an LEO had was sitting in the lane with lights on and apprantly radar on.
I have the 9500i in AUTO mode, mounted in the center, but low on the windshield. THere were no locked out locations in the area, and I was travelling about 40-45 mph.
When I received the signal, my warning went something like this.
Still not perfectly linear, but much improved over what I experienced in the past. Again this was only one instance, but I thought I would share.
