    About the boxes...

    If a signal comes in that is outside the box, does that even light up the main unit in those scenarios? If it does not, because Mike is confident it's a false bogey, then...

    Re: Switch from 9500i to valentine?

    I love my V1 in the city. In my area X band isn't used, so I have X turned off. K band I have on a short automute. Pretty quiet setup and when I do take a couple hour highway trip (a few times a...

    Re: Redline POS

    The new V1 with Traffic Monitor System is supposed to block those K band speed monitors. I'm going to upgrade from my older V1 to a new one.

    Re: version 3.892

    I live in Cleveland OH and we are being inundated with the traffic monitoring drones. So it sounds like the only thing I would give up is K pop to enable this filter? Right now I run 30 sec mute on...

    Re: setting G - mute rear K band

    I understand how automute works, in its different modes. I am wondering whether A mode overrides the G setting.

    Let me put it this way:

    Automute active
    G pointing down so rear K band muted...

    setting G - mute rear K band

    I have a question on this setting.

    Does it matter what mode the V1 is in? Will it mute rear K band but visually display it with the rear arrow, in A l or L mode ?

    Thanks.
  10. Re: 480 - Cleveland, OH - are overhead traffic info signs causing K band blasts?

    i am not muting rear antenna. maybe if i did that i could cut the 30 seconds down. that might be worth it. i can't remember right now -- if i switch to A mode and have rear antenna muted, will it...
  11. Re: 480 - Cleveland, OH - are overhead traffic info signs causing K band blasts?

    I turn on X when I leave my daily commute. The towns I drive through don't use X and I've never seen OHSP running speed traps along 480 on the section I drive. I have it off because there are too...
  12. Re: 480 - Cleveland, OH - are overhead traffic info signs causing K band blasts?

    I commute West 130th to Broadway Ave on 480.

    I haven't had good luck with anything less than 30 seconds, and I don't allow it to breakthrough at 4 or 6. Even at 20 seconds, because of how many...

    Re: what causes sudden short K band alerts?

    You go it right Rocketman.

    I had for a while there turned K off totally.

    Now I run my V1 with K on automute, no breakthrough, 30 second delay. That has stopped the drones. But when I need...

    Re: V1 settings for a TrueLock fan.

    Sorry to bring up an old post, but this post raises/answers a few questions that I believe are confusing even to long-time V1 users.

    Your post would seem to suggest that A vs l vs L mode does...

    Re: what causes sudden short K band alerts?

    I set the V1 to automute for 3 seconds regardless of K band signal strength. It stopped about 1/2 of the drones from breaking through. The rest alerted because there was a K band source near the...
  18. Re: 480 - Cleveland, OH - are overhead traffic info signs causing K band blasts?

    No, I had it set to unmute at 6, which it goes over.

    Yes, I guess I could try 1 second of mute with no unmute at 4 lights or 6 lights. Hopefully the drone bursts are less than a second.

    Great...

    Re: what causes sudden short K band alerts?

    If TSR means no learning, that'd be great.

    So TSR costs me about 1 second of response time? Does this affect every band with TSR on?

    Re: what causes sudden short K band alerts?

    I understand that's how its supposed to work but in practice I'm still puzzled. Let's say the overhead signs are 2 miles apart. Let's say when the radar drone does its blast, the signal travels up...

    Re: what causes sudden short K band alerts?

    I'm sure its the drones. We have brand new "traffic flow information" signs that have been put up. :( That's when this mess started.

    It happens every 30-60 seconds. Full strength many times, no LEO anywhere. Last 2-3 seconds, then nothing.

    what causes sudden short K band alerts?

    First, I have a V1 3.872. The unit is about a year old.

    Here's what's happening. My commute recently changed. I began using 480 in Cleveland, OH after not using it for years.

    There is a...
  24. Re: 480 - Cleveland, OH - are overhead traffic info signs causing K band blasts?

    OK - yes, I used to have one of the Escorts that had SWS decode ability.

    So the new overhead amber-dot-matrix traffic info signs they installed along the freeway might be fed by a SWS signal? And...
  25. 480 - Cleveland, OH - are overhead traffic info signs causing K band blasts?

    I have begun using 480 again to commute to work after a job change. I go from West 130th to near 271.

    What is up with the sudden K band "explosions" I am seeing on my V1? At first I thought my...
