I couldn't find a post for Michael B's program update suggestions so I figured I would make one.
I personally don't see much to improve on my 690, but though if I were to change mine a bit I would put a larger delay in after it picks up radar. What I mean, is that if I'm traveling down a road and get a I/O on the car ahead of me, the screen wouldn't immediatley go back to "highway" on my unit it would show the "Ka >>3" for 3 or 4 seconds before switching back to the "highway" display. Right now I get the KA alert for a second sometimes and when I look up to see what band it was it's already goes back to the "highway". Sometimes on fast alerts like this the voice feature doesn't even go off just the 'beep'.
Also, I'm not sure if this is an option, but I love the fact that the 690 is virtually invisable to RDD's. However, in the GOL tests, it comes up at 265ish feet. Would it be possible to add a feature to have the detector detect the RDD's and shut it down for 30 seconds? I know they used to do this on the 1470 and I loved it, I would slow down for 3 or 4 minutes. The 1470 would actually turn itself off I believe for like 20 seconds. Is it possible to add this feature on the 690?
Would be a good area for Michael B to review how the actual 690 and 78 owners to post ideas. Post away.
