    Default X Band at Traffic Light (V1 doesn't detect)

    I used to have a Whistler Pro-58 until I got a V1 and gave the whistler to my girlfriend and there is a traffic light in my girlfriend's town that sets the whistler off for x... I never knew what it was, but I can see some type of device on top of the light. The weird thing is that V1 doesn't detect this at all, making me question what the device is even more. Does anyone know what this could be?

    2 things first make sure x band is not disabled on your V1
    The other thing is the filtering on the V1 is much better than the Whistler.

    I have a CVS by me that always sets off my PRO58 but not the V1

    Everytime I've seen a box on a traffic light it transmits on X band.

    Perhaps it's a traffic sensor that's out of tune, and the Whistler has a wider guard band on X than the V1.

    What mode do you run the V1 in? Does it pick it up in A mode? I assume it detects LEO X band no problem.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?
