Hi all - So after being new to this forum and posting my situation, I was told that the V1 was going to be the best for me.
I finally received the V1 and it definitely feels good to finally have a detector. I have only had it for a few days now and just took it on a longer drive back to school in Upstate NY. I learned a ton about the detector on the drive.... In long island (where i initially had it), I was getting a lot of X and K peeps, presumably false alarms as I drove through congested areas. On the highway, aside from the occasional X or K, every time I passed a cop the thing went off with the Ka band. (I also learned that cops must drive with their radar detectors on at all times because I would get alarms when they were even coming at me).
So my questions are - Is Ka band the only radar band that the cops use in NY?? How about in NJ and PA?
Is it illegal to have a radar detector mounted on the dash in the state of NY?? I know its not illegal to have, but I have been told by people that you can't actually be using it. Any truth to that?
Do you recommend using the Logic (or Advanced Logic Modes) at all times? I presume it will cut down on false alarms in the congested areas.... Am I correct with that assumption and will it miss LEO with that trade-off?
