When driving to the same speed trap in my town, sometimes there is a SUV shooting X-band instant on, and sometimes there is a cruiser shooting Ka-band constant on.
In the case of the X-band instant on, I will receive warnings as his gun goes on and off up before the road curves left to the straight away where the cop is hiding. Once I round the corner the warnings continue as the officer uses his gun. No complaints here, x-band seems to be working perfectly.
In the case of the Ka-band constant on, I will receive warnings from his gun only when I have rounded the corner and I am driving directly toward him. In expert mode 2 Ka-band bars come up for the 1 LEO. The warning time is significantly worse. I have noticed that I have to be almost ontop of the LEO when coming from behind to get a Ka-band warning from him aswell.
It seems as though when I see other LEO's using Ka-band and I get the 2 Bar expert mode warning the time is also reduced.
Whats going on here? It doesnt make me feel very secure.
