I have decided to reconsider my choice for disabling K band on my Valerie after what I experienced this afternoon. I saw a sheriff sitting at each of the K band Your Speed Is signs parked just in front of them letting the signs to the dirty work.
I saw a customer pulled over just down the hill from one of the signs where I presumed the sheriff had been sitting prior to the pull over. This scared me and made me reconsider my choice for disabling K band. I have now re-enabled K band on my valerie and although K band is not officially used (no police cars wit K band units that is) it still can and apparently is used by LEO's to do a speed trap type of situation (not exactly but for lack of a better term)
So I went and programmed my V1 (Valerie) to the following and let me know if you think the following is good:
#2 - UP (K band enabled)
#7 - DOWN (B-G features enabled)
#B and C - DOWN
#D - UP
Total of 15 sec K band automute
#E - DOWN ( K band 4 LED's stay muted)
#F - UP ( Unmute at 6 LED's)
#G - UP (Rear K band not muted)
I am running Val in L mode (Advanced Logic) mode because that way by the time I hear the alert from the K band YSI signs I will have enough time to get to the PSL (usually I don't go over by 5 MPH in the city) while still keeping the door openers and such muted.
I thought this would be good enough so that if I should forget about the YSI signs Valerie will remind me in enough time to slow down while still not letting me get annoyed over hearing the door openers. Do you think 15 sec is long enough? or perhaps too short. The override at 6 LED's (option F) should save me if I get near the signs within the first 15 secs.
Some door openers spots in town can easily take more then 15 secs if I get stopped at a light so I may up it to 30 secs while still leaving F and G as they are.
Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?
