I had an interesting problem with my IX today. In the morning heading to work, there was a K band speed trailer set up, which to the IX alerted perfectly. On my lunch break, i travelled the same road except in the opposite direction, I was waiting to my IX to alert, and i looked at it and saw the spinning GPS icon. I pressed the MUTE button twice to unlock the signal, and it said it had been unlocked, but the icon kept spinning. I tried this about 5 more times to no avail. When it's unlocked, should the RD alert to the signal?
Some interesting points:
--I only made one pass by the trailer prior to the IX apparenly autolocking it out..i thought it needs at least 3 passes.
--The area in which the trailer was placed, i have marked as a "speed trap" using the MARK button.(If it matters)
--The speed trailer has never been setup anywhere in this area since ive owned the IX, making it impossible for autolearn to have previously recorded the exact position and frequency to lock it out.
--About 3/4 a mile away is a k band door opener, but where the speed trailer was, the door opener is well out of reception range due to a hill and curve.
--I did a hard reset, and cleared ALL truelock and marked locations, then used detector tools to restore my good truelock locations (which did NOT include the speed trailer lockout). When i passed the trailer after this, it still showed the spinning icon
