New to the forum, so forgive me if this is a newbie question. I did do some searches but could not find a good answer to this. What is the real reason to have custom sweeps? I am trying to figure out if I should upgrade to get ESP on my Valentine One and the V1Connection functionality seems to be the main addition. I do not need to use my Android as a remote display as I already have a concealed display (which I would also need to upgrade in order to get full ESP functionality), which suits my needs fine.
As such, it seems to me that Custom Sweeps would be the main additional functionality that I would get with ESP and I would love to know what I should really expect in terms of tangible benefits. I think I should see fewer falses since I can specify tighter bands for the sweeps. Can anyone comment on how much of a difference it makes? Does it cut falses in half, or just avoid the odd leak from a cheap radar detector?
I also think I should potentially see slightly earlier warnings if I double up on sweeps in a particular range. However, I assume we are talking maybe a second or two earlier, not much more than that, right? Now that might make all the difference in the world when you are traveling at highway speeds approaching a radar source, but I just want to set my own expectations correctly.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
