hey guys, I just got in from a 10 mile trip, and was hit with constant K, constant KA, and laser 3 times. Ohio is hungry today....
I am worried that my v1 is not picking up K band from the police cruiser, actually I know its not.
I was coming down the road when my x50 alerted me of a K band, eventually it goes full lit and I see the cop. He is about 30 seconds from my house, so I decided to run home and grab my v1 to test them out on range.
I plugged the v1 in and moved it to the upper right of my windshield, about 3 feet away from the x50. THe x50 alerted to full K, where as the v1 did not make a single peep.
I decided to unplug the x50, trying to figure out if it was interfering. I went by the cop, v1 gave a strength of one blip of KA. My town that i live in does not use KA. I pull a u-turn as soon as the cop went out of view, turned off the v1 and turned on my x50, and it alerted to full K. I did one more run with the v1, and it did not make a sound.
obviously somthing was wrong, so I drove by my normal everyday false spot on K band with the v1, and it alerted like it normally did.
guys.... any ideas? I do have a telephone cord that runs from the v1 to the ciggarete lighter, but I dont think thats the problem since its never done this.
I have all the bands turned on, and all the settings are factory
UPDATE: I went ahead and stopped in to VR today as I was on my way back from kentucky, and they say that it fell out of calibration and needed re-tuned. I decided to go ahead and get the upgrade w/euromode and see if this rumor of it being quiet is true...
