    If you have a Bluetooth compatible V1 using euro mode you can ban segregate your Ka to what ever your local cops use. This will turbo charge your V1. You don't have to turn Ku on. You can also narrowed down your K ban sweeps so that you can mute out a large amount of your K false alerts. This is a very well documented feature so google the sucker and all will be revealed.
    sorry .813 is no longer the Jew in the crown "we has a turbo charged V1 with blow off values"

    Also turn on Traffic Monitor Filter which also shuts off k-pop, this will help quiet down blind spot k band systems also.

    Unfortunately euro mode turns on pop full time. However you have the Frequency of the offending K false (on you cell phone screen). If it is a blind spot offender you can make sure it's out side your unmute box. Probably around 24.070 GHz.

    Yes Euro turns on k and ka pop but I thought you could kill the k pop by turning on the Traffic Monitor Filter thus making it Euro ka pop only. Maybe I am thinking of yav1 and this only works on the YaV1 app?

    I run iOS. As far as I known pop Ka is full time. Yav1 is a another story. I'm unsure about it. It sounds really good thou. I don't run tmf as it kills the k band sensitivity a little.

    Good answers, thanks ghz. I am going to be upgrading the .813 VERY soon! Or what I may just do is just buy the latest and greatest and then when I get that, turn around send in the .813 for a tune and sell it. That way I'm not left without But I am trying to figure out and learn all I can about the latest features in the meanwhile.

    I am holding off just a bit for the sale of my 2nd house to go through, or at least until my buyer schedules his closing. Then will be down to one house and will be a bit more willing to let the cash flow move a bit ... if you get my drift Trying to get an idea as to what my closing expenses might be with property tax pro-rate, etc. Then it's new V1 time.

    Thanks for the answers...that makes sense. I will play with euro settings in the demo-mode as I have already got the app to start playing around with it.

    You should get some good money for your .813 desirable V1's are .813,.826,.872. I wouldn't seen it in for a tune up if it seems to be working fine. Let the buyer do that. I'm sure people in the Community in some of the othe forums will scoop it up. All the best.

    V1 has always done right by me. I'm the original owner of the .813 and that's not my only V1 either. I have sent the V1 in a few times throughout the years and tune ups have always been done free. I even had a board go bad (unbeknownst to me) and they took care of it. V1 is a stand up company in my book, so I have a good mind to believe that if I purchase another brand new unit complete with V1C that they will tune up my .813 for me. That way it's taken care of and the buyer doesn't need to worry about it. If it departs the US, that will give the buyer that much more peace of mind and something they won't have to take care of. If it doesn't cost me anything, I won't be out anything anyway

    I do have a question on the sweeps...
    So I'm playing around in the demo mode and I am reading something about "Sweep 0," which appears to be a 33.8 sweep that the V1 does by default? Is that correct? Do I set that "default" sweep by setting the "in the box" parameters for that part of the band?
    I am also a bit befuddled as to what the "in the box options" actually do. Is there a tutorial or something on exactly how the app works as some of these options are obviously done by programmers who like to use double negatives and mutually exclusive options that get confusing.
    And what of the "K and Ka sweeps" option under the "special" setting? I don't see the possibility to include K band sweeps under the custom area.

    It really would be great to lock out certain k frequencies like door openers and what not. Possibly even some of these 18 wheelers that have it somewhere... I don't know if it's a pre-pass transponder or what the heck it is in those big rigs, but sometimes they will drive me crazy for miles.

    in the box is muting function mute or not mute. Sweep only applys to Ka band which you can box for muting as well.
    Ok you can't customise k band for sweeps.With the V1 C app All you can do is narrow the box to what the cops use in your area eg 24.150 GHz so box 24.100 to 24.200 to be safe. Then un-mute in the box and mute outside the box. When in euro mode ( which Is where you want to be) 33.8 GHz is on by default you can't turn it off at all. You don't need to fill up all the sweep option. You could just sweep (sweep 1)34.600 to 34.770 GHz (S2) 34.774 to 34.800GHz and (S3) 35.400 to 35.600GHz. Don't worry about the 4mhz space the v1 over sweeps so it's covered. If you have pop or 33.8 GHz in your area you are cover by default in euro mode. I know it's hard to put your head it around to start with but it will become easy in time. Also if your not too sure about the Frequencies used in your area use the v1 in USA mode till you have some knowledge on them.now......... Third party apps for iOS stealthAssist v1 is good it will mute out k band like savvy under whatever speed you set it to @$10. The real kicker is the android app yav1 (free so far)it auto mutes like the bells and escorts but it does it better. So yeah I know a head full but in time and searching OTHER FORUMS you will find a lot of helpful information and people that really know this stuff. Remember pop is on by default in euro mode pretty sure it's something to do with the v1 j alert yes it still "J's" out some false alerts!If you get falsies you can see the frequency and disregard it easily. In the box un-mute and out of the box mute is magic most of the time. Regards
