    Default "J" function on crack today?

    I was rolling up to a red light, when I get a brief KA alert followed by a J, then imediatly, another KA followed by a J, then it just started making the J sound constantly back and forth while flashing J for about a minute.

    I am guessing that the J function is only supposed to weed out 1 fallse at a time? I guess there was 2 detectors, and when one was hit with the J it would J the other one, then go back to the first one and J that one....Does that makes sense?

    Mike if you are still around, care to provide some input on this one?

    haha that is pretty crazy. I had a fairly scary experience yesterday a known Ka photo radar source I was going to video tape to show the distance on the V-1 which it picked up 2.2 miles out in little L. However at the first alert I didnt wanna hear the noise for 2.2 miles so I muted it out. 5 seconds later it calls it J and I get no more warning.

    I'm freaking out because this thing just J'd a known Ka source. I did the test 6 more times to see if it would do it again, and it didnt. I cant explain why it would do this but man that was weird.

    i had a similar experience once.
    i was coming towards and over an on ramp, picking up a ka alert from DPS. they were clocking people coming around the corner behind them. as i went over the top and above/passed him, the arrow went to the rear, then a few moments later suddenly it flashed the "J" and stopped.
    i'm hoping it was a fluke in that it picked up another detector just as i got out of distance from the known source.

    I think that you guys should DEFINITELY contact VR directly about this. If their firmware is flawed (or worse, buggy) they should know about it.

    If I do get a V1, I think I'm just going to disable the J feature anyway, less falses and no pop protection sounds fine to me...
