    Re: V1 False Alerts from Tractor Trailers

    I've been having the same problem with our V1, it seemed to start last year and got really bad this year. About 25% of the big trucks on the interstates are now emitting a strong K band signal...

    I've been getting the same problems with our V1, and not just in Illinois. It seems like about 25% of the big trucks on the interstates, will give me a K band alert that's identical to a patrol car...

    Re: C100 Kills Laptop

    Will the C100 software work in a computer that is running Windows 7?
    I'm thinking of converting our home PC (XP) and laptop (Vista) both to Windows 7, that would simplify a lot of things.

    Re: C100 Kills Laptop

    All of that was installed last summer, so something else is going on. I'll wait until we get home before working on this, don't want to take any chances with the laptop while on a trip.

    Disable X Band?

    About five years ago, some people started recommending that we disable the X Band to reduce falses, because no one uses it any more. Wrong! I live in a moderately affluent suburb with a well equipped...

    Re: C100- Good but not Perfect

    To clarify my previous comments:

    The C100 does NOT distract me right now, because I've got it down in the ash tray where it's out of my line-of-sight.
