I bought a red X50 for myself and I'm really liking it so far. The 1st day I got it I picked up a sudden strong K band signal and I looked everywhere for the local police. I couldn't find them, but when I looked in my rearview mirror that answered the question, they were right behind me lol. I just thought that was so cool, since that was my first radar encounter. Anyways, I have a few questions:
1. Why is it when I drive my the CVS or grocery store, X band and sometimes K band goes nuts?
2. Will I still get good LASER reception with the X50 mounted right below my rearview mirror on the windshield? If I mount it higher, will the rear view mirror block rearward signals?
3. When I was being followed by the police (they were directly behind me), the X50 signal strength was full, six bars. A few minutes later, he was still right behind me, the signal strength died out until the display went back to AUTO. Does this mean he turned off his radar?
Thanks for the help guys!
