Hi - new member from the Bay Area. I swap a V1 (hardwired) between two cars and it's served me faithfully for many miles. Thinking about turning off the X band since it seems to be used only by alarm systems, door openers, and a particularly annoying "Your Speed Is" sign on a frontage road off 101 in South City. Anyone have positive or negative experience with doing that?
Glad to have found such a useful site.

Re: Hi Everyone
Well, there have been no reports of X band anywhere in Cali in years. Most Cali forum members turn it off. That being said, there is no law that would keep a LEO in Cali from using an old X band radar gun and handing out some tickets to RD users that have turned off their X band. Basically, it's probably safe to turn it off, but the risk that you could encounter an X band radar gun, however slight that might be, does exist.
