    Default Question for users who had a V1 1.8 & had it upgraded to

    Hi guys,

    I have a V1 1.8 and am debating upgrading it to POP. A friend of mine has an 8500 X50, and when you enable pop, it falses almost non-stop.

    On my V1, I have X-band dissabled (due to falsing being an annoyance, and it not being used in my area) will I end up getting annoyed and disabling POP mode?

    Should I wait until the upgrade is more substantial? $50 for POP seems kind of steep.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    KJ

    Wait because POP is really a non issue. POP is like LA stealth mode, overhyped.

    I upgraded because I believe POP to be used in two of the states in which I travel. So far I have no regrets. I had a few doubts about it when I first upgraded because I started getting Ka falses from detectors, but it has behaved extremely well all summer. I wouldn't spend the money unless you suspect that you may run into POP, though. Only a few places are known to have it.

    I have fewer false alarms on Ka band than before I upgraded. And I did not get that many Ka band false alarms before I upgraded. I always had far fewer Ka falses with my V1s than with my BELs. My K and Ka band range is also a little bit better than before the upgrade. I am very happy with the POP upgrade.
