Just wondering if my 8500i is working properly... I bought it 3 months ago and had a few instances of Ka band coming on. I programmed it to show the frequency and the signal strength. When the Ka band turned on, I notice it woulds witch from initially being Ka 35.xx to Ka 33.xx or Ka 34.xx .... And the signal was very weak - only one bar. Why is it switching between different frequencies? Then after like 4 beeps, it all disappears.
I've passed by 2 cops, first one was on the freeway w/ other cars with him on his motorcycle parked on the side. Didn't see if he had his radar on but my 8500i did not go off at all.
Another instance was local, with a lot of cars in front of me. Cop parked on the side street. My RD did not go off either, not even when I passed him. This time, it was a speed trap for sure as he came blazing thru the traffic to pull a car in front of me a minute after.
