My V1 has been working perfectly up until about two weeks ago. I am lucky enough that the town I am living in uses Ka C/O almost exclusively, so I had no problem getting good warnings ahead of time.
Anyway, they recently installed this new Ka speed sign a little more than a half mile down the road from the interstate off-ramp. Each time I drive by I crest the hill on the off-ramp and get a Ka warning. Pretty impressive, until the V1 Js out! I know this is a real Ka band device, so why does the V1 J out sometimes and other times not? That is not good.
Next, I have noticed that driving around a couple parts of town I get insane Ka warnings when no LEOs are around. The V1 will start with 1 bogey ahead and 1 LED, and all of a sudden skip to 2 bogeys with 4 LEDs behind and then continue to keep the arrows flashing in all different directions with the signal LEDs going from one to six. All of this happens at a stop light when I can clearly see that there is no LEO around. It has happened on a few different occasions, and I am worried that I can't trust the V1 now.
I have Ka guard on, POP off, X off, and K on mute. K works fine on the older speed signs around town. The V1 was purchased this summer, so it doesn't have the newest software. I also take the unit out of the car overnight so it doesn't get too cold.
Any suggestions on what could be going wrong? Thanks!
