I really am ready to throw this damn thing away. Today I was driving home from Maryland, where I know they use instant on K.
I have my filtering set for my local area because its unreal how annoying this can be. 7 to 8 bogeys for 5 straight miles will drive you insane.
Anyways, I was leaving my girl friends house, and didn't bother to check my V1 settings. I had it on Little l, so I can at least see an alert. And I keep the warning set to half with the lever.
I ended up getting a K band instant on alert but ignored the alert because that's what I've trained myself to do. As I rounded a corner I got another hit but it took me 3 seconds to realize it was legit. About that time I saw the cop standing on the side of the road using a hand held K band gun, looked like a decatur.
Thank god I wasn't speeding and only going 3 over the limit. It was a 20MPH area, and he was tagging people as they rounded a 90 degree corner.
I went to best buy looking for a 9500i, but they don't have any in yet.
Who the hell cares if this thing can pick up radar for miles & miles, if you condition yourself to ignore the alerts what good is it?
