    Default Michigan and X-band?

    Thinking about switching off the X-band on my V1 to reduce falsings. Is X still in use in Michigan? Thanks!

    Default for the most part

    For the most part it is not used in Michigan but wait just a minute. Around the Saginaw/Bay City area around Beaver rd and on M-13, x band has been seen used by some countie LEOS. You are forewarned. This is the only place I know about. It's not used over by me, but when I travel, it comes back on because you truly never know.

    In Southeast Michigan I shut X off....It's all Ka 35.5 around here with the occasional K hit. When I leave Michigan on business, X is turned back on.

    I do turn it on when I travel up north though. I use to live in Tawas City and the city cop used X. Seen it spotty in other small towns up there as well.

    MSP uses mostly K, Ka, and laser on the highway (primarily Ka), I've had only one X encounter in MI, had a strong alert building up to my exit and saw a MSP SUV right in front of my exit, but I could not get up to it to confirm the source.

    I think disabling or maybe advanced-logic mode would be safe to do for MI, but for highway trips I'd recommend letting on a bit of X
