On the V1 it shouldn't.
Many other detectors will purposely lower their sensitivity on K and Ka while POP is on to reduce falses.
Since the area Im in uses 34.7 Ka, disabling POP means that my V1 will spend less time searching the 33.8 Ghz band and more time in the 34.7.
At least thats what I was told. It might not improve the range, but it should increase its response time.
Beltronics STi-Remote does one step better: You would simply select option 5 for CHP
Each Ka segment can be turned on or off
Ka1 (33.392 - 33.704) ON or OFF
Ka2 (33.704 - 33.896) ON or OFF
Ka3 (33.886 - 34.198) ON or OFF
Ka4 (34.184 - 34.592) ON or OFF
Ka5 (34.592 - 34.808) ON or OFF
Ka6 (34.806 - 35.166) ON or OFF
Ka7 (34.143 - 35.383) ON or OFF
Ka8 (35.378 - 35.618) ON or OFF
Ka9 (35.595 - 35.835) ON or OFF
Ka10 (35.830 - 35.998) ON or OFF
I wish the 9500CI had this option.Originally Posted by V1 Dave

Most Whistler detectors do this. From GOL's August 2007 test I didn't see any significant difference between POP ON and POP OFF alert distances, not to mention Mike V boasts that he doesn't reduce receiver sensitivity, ever.
