i bolded the parts I care about most.
just bought a used 1.8 today for $300
box wasn't in the best condition, however it included all the accessories, except the coiled power cord, but I didn't plan on using that anyway. Radar was in near perfect condition except for a few small scuffs and a minor scratch on the rear antenna window.
was it a good deal, or could I have done better on ebay? will the scratch make any difference?
obviously I am not covered under warranty but could I still send it in for upgrade?
the serial was on there but looks faded, I ran it through the website and got this:
"V1 Description: Radar circuitry known in-house as V1.8-POP2. This is our latest and best performer on both radar and laser. Of interest to those who drive in Europe, the latest V1 version also has a Euro Mode.
Upgrade Recommendation: For operation in North America, you already have our best. If you drive in Europe, you may chose to add our new Euro Mode which improves protection on photo radar as it is used in the E.U. "
When I checked the firmware it reports as 3.819 is this a fairly good version or should I send it in for upgrade? I live in south florida, is the digital temperature compensation that I believe mine lacks important?
for placement, what would be more important, having it closer to the center, or closer to the top of the windshield? my rvm is so close to the roof that it doesn't fit above it.
today i already received what I would call ka falses... is ka a normal band for it to false on? both times I received a strong alert for a few seconds and then it just went away, no rear arrows as i "passed" the threat, no J either. I never saw any cop or anything I felt could be giving it off, I had been running a v940 in the same area for a few weeks prior so I dont know what it could have been.
will pop off affect instant on detection at all?
does little L or big L affect anything aside from x, the manual isn't entirely clear...
I have yet to see a J, does this only happen when one of the logic modes are activated? any settings required to turn it on?
REALLY sorry for all the questions, I have been reading a ton of threads and searching, sadly these are all the questions I have left after answering a ton myself by reading around here.
thanks for any help. there seems to be a lot of well informed folks around here, so hopefully I won't be in the dark for too long.
