i think many people will agree that they have had a false alart beeping while there is a gatso or radar threat ahead.......
its really doing my head in, my detector will beep due to crossing lights which i've just passed on ka band and then when i'm going through a gatso its still beeping ka band... and then it will go off and the gatso k band radar will beep when i'm half through the lines!
mikes right when he says detectors answer 1 call which jams them up!
even though i've got a snooper the same could be said for the bell 966 or 975 ones..... or even the bel euro 550 which are £309.99 they say its rrp £449.99 thats $550!!! and that rrp price would be......... $798! and you think the v1 is espensive! at $399 or £217 its a bargin!
all of which dont do multi bogeys unlike the v1 and escort!
normaly the detector will respond to the highest radar but as you can see the highest isnt always the threat as with the gatso its hiding in the radar from the lights........ i think instant on radar and laser overides any other radar alert, well i think thats what it says....
even though i know the gatsos there and i'm not speeding, i do like to know if its ''on'' as then i make sure i'm below the limit as i pass it.
this wouldnt happen very often if i were able to turn off the other bands
because x isnt used, it is used on the watchman but there not in my area ku and ka arnt used....... i soppose they are but the mini gatso and ka band radar gun arnt used..... the last time i encountered a mini gatso was in 1999 - 2000. it was infront of a van parked on the roadside.... my snooper give me a good warning but we werent paying attention to the detector at the time......... but more to the gatso and the people belting passed it.......... it was constant flashing! nasty!!!!
i'm sure people with the non multi detectors agree!
