OK, stupid question of the month. Please bear with me. I replaced my Whistler 1580 of 8 years with the new Passport 9500i. In all this time I can never, ever, remember X Band being of any use. It always seems to be generated by a non-threatening signal and has been an annoyance more than anything. I had started to use the cool GPS signal lockout feature on x bands, but then it dawned on me. Why? Why not just turn it off? LEO's in Texas and other states I travel in are using only K and Ka. I can't think of any good reason for leaving it ON. Is there something I'm missing?
Just curious how many of you have turned "X" band off on your primary unit. Please vote! 8)
