This is directed primarily at Michael B, but chime in if you like!
Mike, I have a few questions on the XTR-695...
* I'm curious about the Filter analysis options. For the K/Ka bands, using the Filter 1 or 2 (compared to the normal Filter setting), is there any difference in the range at which they detect a real threat? Is there a difference in the amount of time it displays a real alert to the driver?
* Do you guys have any idea how 'quiet' the 695 is when dealing with a Spectre III? I saw the GoL test using the 690, and its detection range was minimal! Beat out everything but the Bel STi which is invisible.
And one more, a hypothetical I will at some point, have to deal with:
Let me set the scene 1st... On my commute, I spend much of the time in the middle of farming fields, theres nothing out there mostly. In one area, theres a Corporate Yard (literally the middle of nowhere, all by itself). Something there sets the X-band off, and the 695 can see it a solid mile away, by a 1/4 away, the 695 is PEGGED. After I pass it, it takes maybe another 3/4 mile to fade from the 695's view. Whatever it is, is ALWAYS on.
Heres the question: Theres a spot right next to the Corp' Yard where the CHP and Sheriff like to camp out with their guns pointed down the road (I've only detected 34.7 from them in my general area) - How would the 695 handle that situation?
I'm wondering how/if it will pick up and ID their Ka band guns while some mystery source X-band is saturating the area. Will that X-band 'noise' interfere with the 695's range and detection of a real Ka-band threat?
As always, thanks for any info!
