    It warns of the potential presence of a VG2 radar-detector-detector. If you're in a car and not in Virginia either turn detection of VG2 off if possible or just ignore the alerts.

    You got a junk of RD, honestily... I have an S2, cordless, obviously the VG2 is always turned ON but I have never got any VG2 alert, and I live in a big city with thousands of traffic lights... as SAS said, if you don't need it just turn it OFF :wink:

    Why do you need a VG2 alert in NY state.
    You better be concerned about Ka Bro........and Lidar.
    So if I were you I'd invest in a REAL Radar Detector and a Jammer..... :wink:
    In the mean time as SAS said.....Turn it Off.

    This RD is not something I speed with. I bought it cuz I had $40 bucks laying around and I wanted to see how good/bad this unit is. Another reason is a buddy of mine works at Radio Shack and gave me another $10 dollars off. So I ended up paying 34 something with tax. I might return it in 30 days, or just keep it. I will be getting a X50 red screen for x-mas.

    So I don't need VG2 alert in NY?

    Gonna be having a Whistler SRT-30 and an X50 Red Screen both on at the same time.

    I live in VA and use a Solo S-2 and have gotten the VG-2 alert several times. Mostly in the City but once or twice on the highway. I wonder if the LEO really have their VG-2 units on or if the Solo is falsing. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hey, I see you're in Albany... does your K band go nuts on Central Ave?

    I'm not sure if it's because of the Traffic division being there and they leave their guns on when the cars are off or drones. I pick them up not even close to the Traffic station though.
