Really don't want to fiddle with detector every time I get on and off highways.
Eventually I'll be lazy or forget.
V1 does better according to most objective tests. But that testing is usually in "chatty mode" (A mode).
How would a V1 in L mode stack up to a less sensitive quiet detector like 9500ix.
In L mode it sure is quiet.
I had X off, automute K up to 6 lights, rear K off and was beeping and bopping like crazy. In L mode it completely quieted down.
The automute for 30 seconds I find not too helpful (better than nothing for sure). I don't know about you but 99% of the busy traffic lights where all the K band false tend to be takes WAY longer than 30 second to get through. Every time I need it, it exceeds 30 seconds easily.
I assume escort must have a patent on automute (in the other direction, i.e. alert me and be quiet on it's own).
