Please help - recently my X50 it seems like range on K band is horrible. I posted about this a few weeks back, but I just had 2 experiences that scared me to death. Well the 1st one, straight road no hills, I can see LEO has pulled over a customer about a mile away. No alert until I am literally 3 car lengths away then full K alert. Now I know that since he was right behind a pulled over vehicle that may have something to do with it but...
2nd issue - driving through the mountains near Asheville (no one in front of me) and come out of a tunnel and get one K blip, then literally a second later round a corner and full bar. I don't think it was I/O b/c it continued for a little while as I passed him. I was doing well over the limit and had to stand on the brakes. Thought I was gone for sure. Was it b/c of the tunnel and rock? He was around a corner so there was probably a lot of rock and nothing else to reflect a signal but man it was close. I'd say I got a 3 second warning on that one.
Ka I get alerts on fine. It just seems K alerts are real short. Could be from the special circumstances, but still I am worried. Bought the unit at BB less than a year ago. If I sent it to Escort will they look at it for free since there is a year warranty I think? Will BB do anything?
Thanks for any help.
