Ok guys, just wanted to get your opinion on my Escort Passport x50 (Blue). I've had it for about 1 month now and I bought it brand new from Sharper Image, since I had a giftcard.
Anyways, LEO's in my area, aside from State Troopers, use constant Ka most of the time. Since I've had my x50, everytime I encounter a cop, it will go to alert level 1, go away, alert level 2, go away, and than just go to the very top! Very annoying! Not sure what's the deal with this.
Call me crazy, but I like to test it out by driving @ midnight to find a hard working LEO parked on the side of the road and drive past him over and over, going the speed limit of course, to check my range. Tonight, KA gave me about 100 feet, I could see him before the x50 picked it up!
I mount my detector low, so I can pick up Laser, which I have once from a State Trooper on motorcycle, but definately high enough to avoid the windsheild wipers. Any opinions on this? I just recently placed Veil on so I want the detector low, but it definately seems to be KILLING my range.
Anybody else having trouble with ramp-up on Ka or just horrible range?
