Lately K band alerts on my X50 are having what seems to be some kind of ramp up problem. Twice this week K band on a legitimate source went from basically no alert to full bar, not much warning, and I am 99% sure it was not I/O either time b/c there was a lot of traffic.
Once was on the interstate, I came over the crest if a small hill and he was coming in the other direction, probably both of us were going 70 (there was traffic). X50 at the top of the small hill gets like 1 blip, then goes full bar.
2nd time I was on a surface street and he was facing me in a turning lane behind some other traffic. Again as I got close I got 1 blip then full bar.
I have the unit mounted high in the tint. I did a factory reset last night so maybe that will help, but this concerns me b/c I thought the X50 was supposed to be killer on K (I just bought the unit from BB in January). Although it could be b/c of the small hill in the 1st scenario, and in the 2nd scenario the officer was right behind another vehicle turning, but still...
