Hey guys, I just got myself a V1, an upgrade from my old cobra 100 dollar detector which i saw as really bad as it had WAY too many false alerts.
Anyway, to get to the point, I had some questions i wanted to ask about how I can really benefit and properly read/understand what my detector is saying.
1. I live in Florida, and have been getting ALOT of X-band alerts, that are just annoying cause it can build up to like 5 or 6 targets and none of them are cops. I heard that Florida doesnt even use X band, so wouldnt it be best if i just turn it off?
2. How does this "mute" button work, like if i have lets say K band and it has "2" on the radar both infront, and i just push the knob once, it mutes it, does that mean it will only mute those 2 that it initially caught because i know they are false alerts? Meaning it will resume to beep for anything else it catches other than the 2 i pushed the knob on?
3. I am also getting some K band false alerts here and there, what other things other than cops with K band radars could be triggering my detector to give me false alerts on K bands? I mean if i keep pushing on my brakes everytime i hear the K band go off, i might aswell drive slow the whole time, I never know if its a false alert or a real cop.
4. Finally, other than in my first question about the X band, what other things shall i turn off so that i can keep false alerts out as much as possible. I mean the reason i paid 450 bucks for the V1 was because i thought they are the best and wont give me any headaches for false alerts. all I want is a detector that will almost always beep only for REAL alerts.
Also, just to let you guys know, the version on this V1 is 3.891, and it is on full factory settings, and has the letter "A" on the screen when its on and running.
