I've been happily using my v1 in Miami, FL for the past few months, but I was getting extremely annoyed by all of the false X and K band readings that I did some reprogramming... I was hoping someone could answer a few questions and help me out.
Everything is at default factory settings except the following:
1. X band is OFF (cops don't use X-band in South Florida from what I've heard, but every freaking shopping center DOES)
5. Ka more responsive is ON (should I leave this at Normal or is more responsive any better?)
7. Features b thru G ENABLED
bCd. Set to 10 seconds automatic muting
E. Stay muted at four lights is ON
Ok... here are my questions
Question 1: I drove by Walmart to test the muting and it started beeping at normal volume with only 3 lights lit up after the 10 seconds elapsed. Is it possible to have it always be muted even after a ton of time has elapsed as long as the signal hasn't gotten too strong?
Question 2: If I go past 4 lights and it beeps at regular volume, will it go back to muted mode if the signal strength drops below 3 lights before the mute time elapses?
Question 3: Should I be running in little-l mode or big-L mode? How will being in either mode affect my K band alerts depending on settings b-G?
Question 4: Will option 8 (Supress sound completely when I press mute) also affect the volume of additional bogey locks? I'd hate to mute a known false K and then have a real police K signal show up and that stay muted because I totally muted the false.
Question 5: How does signal strength work in relation to distance? i.e. 1 dot = 1000 feet away, 2 dots = 900 feet away, etc...? If I knew what 4 dots and 6 dots meant, then I could determine which should be my threshold for bypassing automute.
Question 6: Do any of you drive in South Florida or another city with no X-band threats but a high level of K false alerts? How is your programming setup to minimize false alerts and annoyances without missing a potentially real K threat?
Thank you *VERY* much for any answers to any of these questions!!!
