There was a person with an X50 today on the Thruway in some new Mitsubishi sports car racing a BMW 5 series, so I figured I'd use them as a rabbit. The BMW lost us, so later on, the person with the X50 brake checked a bunch of cars because a K band drone was up ahead. From travelling the area a lot, I knew it was coming soon, but then my V1 started alerting at around the same spot he started braking.
Then I passed him since he didn't know it was a drone and then we both sped back up. I started getting Ka and slammed my brakes and then I noticed him doing the same (he was in the other lane, not too far behind me)... so he probably got the alert at the same time. It ramped up quick since a Trooper was driving on the other side coming towards us around a sharp curve. I got 3 bogeys. :roll:
I always thought the V1 was a lot better than the X50, but it seemed we were being alerted at the same time. Should I send my V1 in for a checkup? Not sure if it seems as sensitive as it used to be.
I still got an amazing 1.5 mile Ka range when a Trooper had someone pulled over and was right behind them. Normally I don't get good range if their gun is being blocked by a car in that situation. It was around a turn too.
