I just got my new V1 in the mail few days back. I hardwired it to my car, and it looks to be working fine. It is mounted on the left side of the rear view mirror.
However, I have yet to get a genuine Ka band alert. I have gotten numerous K,X band alerts from the shopping malls... but only 2 Ka band alert that were Junk.
Being in Houston, I surely expect to see a load of Ka bands... heck I have gone past several cops, some of them with their lights on.... but my V1 stays silent.
While I know that cops use Instant On which won't register unless it is active- but there has to be tons of cops with constant on!
Am I just not in the right place, or is something wrong with my V1? Maybe it needs to be mounted at an angle or something for it to pick up Ka signals?
Ive never owned a radar detector, so I am a complete idiot when it comes to these things.
