    Default Best detector for X-band...

    I know that X-band is rarely used in USA but over here that is the only thing they use...for the last year or so they have modified their radar guns to work on very low power instant on mode...very hard to detect.

    so my question is which radar detector you think is best for X-band...???


    I have V1 with software version 3.812 if I am not mistaken (have to check that one again)

    Thanks

    X-band is easier to detect than other higher frequency radar bands. Most radar detectors do very well; however, the V1 is known for its legendary X-band performance. As long as it is in the A mode you probably have the best protection currently available against X-band radar short of an X-band radar jammer.

    Like jbird said, the V1 has legendary X band detection. Escorts new X50 is almost abreast of the V1.

    We often take for granted exactly how lethal low powered X Band instant on can be......just ask anyone from New Jersey.
    The Police up here were using a lot of X Band until recently.
    My last speeding ticket about 3 years ago was ....
    low powered instant on X Band.
    The V1 is an excellent RD......Good Luck

    all the state police use here in new jersey is x-band and laser. sometimes i run into constant on, but most of the time it's the low powered instant-on stuff you have nightmares about. they are VERY good with it, sometimes setting up on an on ramp, completely hidden from sight, and only blast people in the rear when they fly by. this makes it EXTREMELY hard to detect when other cars are targeted. you only catch reflections off other peoples back end. you'd never see them until their lights came on....

    The cops here are very good with hidding and waiting...sometimes you wont even see them, because they hide behind the trees and big road signs...the look for a fast aproaching car and only then they trigger the radar.

    I did placed my V1 a little lower on the windshield just next to the rear view mirror and it seems to me that now it has better detection. Maybe I should try placing it even lower and see what happens???
