As usual, not much action as of yet. Did run into a speed sign, and picked up the K band from half a mile away. Not very impressed there, however it has been years since I have used a RD. Maybe these machines fire out weak signals at times. Picked up a K band county mounty(sheriff) this morning, however he was firing in the opposite direction while closing down a lane. After an 1/4 of a mile or under I went around a turn and pretty much lost contact. The big news however, I passed a couple of patrol cars escorting a wide load and my VG2 signal did go off. It went off right when I was even with them and continued to signal for about 8 seconds. That is the only time that icon has alerted, so I believe they do have the VG2 out there searching for RDs in trucks. I suppose that does not help other RD owners either. I might have to turn it off at times, so I am not singled out.
I have not picked up any false alarms at this time. Xband of course is excluded. I passed a Cobra user and I did not report a KA signal.
The INTENSE BLUE DISPLAY, does turn into INVISIBLE BLUE DISPLAY during the day.
I do miss the dial on the Escorts(4600). I also believe the volume could reach higher decibals on the Whistler. My windows were down however, I don't think I can really listen to the radio very loudly. My unit is also placed close to the window.
It is obviously to early to come to a final conclusion. I am excited and nervous about running into some signals. I hope I am not disappointed.
