    I checked my Blackberry Curve and sent and received data while close to the Spectre 2 and no false alarm on the Spectre 2 RDD. This is good.

    As I understand You have PRO-78SE and Spectre II. Could You do a little spectre testing with them? I and for sure some other forum users would be very grateful for that!

    Will spectre alert when approached to SE from behind?
    When placed some plastic in front of SE antenna, will it decrease/eliminate spectres detection range?
    Will spectre alert when SE is not on dash/windshield but placed, for example, on co-drivers seat(it would be placed there after seeing patrol car)?

    Regarding, false alerts with the Spectre, I have operated the Spectre III along the entire east coast of Australia several times now and found that the Spectre RARELY false alerts. A previous post here made mention to rail level crossings to false the Spectre, I found this to be the case with a few crossings in QLD. I'm sorry to say that the unit generally only ever really alerts to a loan vehicle coming the other way on an open stretch of country highway, and we know what that means. I have conducted many other tests such as Spectre vs Ka band radar and Spectre vs another Spectre and neither proved a false alert ( although the other spectre did cause a false at extremely close range only ). I have also run the Spectre for many hours in major cities without any false alerts.

    Hope this info helps, and as usual the results are what I have come up with and please don't depute them. Any ideas on what might cause a false let me know as I still have the Spectre III. I would be happy to trial it and forward the video results.

    So I take it adaptive cruise control on K band would not set off the Spectre also?

    That's the conclusion I have come to Baz, I have posted on your thread regarding adaptive cruise control. Hope that helps.
