So my friends think my V1 is broken. Here is what happens:
On my commute to work everyday I pass 4 construction signs. These signs set off my K-Band fully. In addition, there are several construction signs on I-294 that set off the radar detector. This did not happen when I first got the V1. This started happening within the past 1-2 years. However, the V1 detects police radar perfectly fine and continues to save me.
My friend borrowed my radar detector and said mine falsed a lot more than his. His was an older model however. He said to send it in because it might be broken. Since it is detecting police radar fine, I think it is working properly.
Is my radar broken?
I am seriously considering getting the eBay MSL Escort 9500ix for $350. From what I have read, it will lockout the falses and ease my irritation/desensitization of RDs. It also has redlight camera detection, which will help because they are putting them up everywhere.
