I would like to know who runs their V1 in this mode full time, minus highways........ I would like to know like do you live in a big city or kind out in the middle of no where ..... Cuz i like the quiet time in my car while in this mode, but i feel as if i may miss an alert or something. where i live is mostly K then KA then X.... i believe their is one cop who worksnight shifts that has X band. Does the "L" mode alert to that when it first gets it or only when it reaches a certain strength? When my LG phone from Verizon goes off it alerts to X band at like one, two , or three dots on strength.
