So yea basically what it said. I have like a cig lighter in the center console (not sure why there is even one in there). So I the V1 plug into it and tried to close the top over the center console so that the wire was still coming out of it. It was a tight close but it worked. I did this so I could hook my Ipod up to the other cig lighter. Well when I did this I noticed my signals were weaker than normal and that I actually had a save that was a LEO running C/O Ka band. There was almost no warning of him coming around the corner. The alert started at about 2 bars and ramped up pretty quickly. I also noticed that my K band false alerts were not even being picked up anymore. So my thought was great, my cord is now messed up. I figured I probably squished it with the console cover. I plugged it back into its normal spot and it still had horrible performance.
When I looked at the cord it looked fine. The weird thing is that the next day the range I was getting was insane. I am holding on to false alarms WAY longer than normal and when I went across a speed trap that is popular I got insane range that I have never even gotten before.
I have no idea what is happening but I am certainly not complaining. Is there any explanation for this? Maybe everyone should pinch their cords lol.
