LMAO so the new faceplate is a sticker than says "ESP"?!?!?! Please tell me there is more. I am sure there is but it still makes me laugh. Looking forward to my two 3.892's. One will arrive tomorrow.

Is there anything in the new owner's manual that says what ESP actually does?

After riding around with the new v1 on my window next to the STIR+. The STIR+ has been performing better even with the known interference coming from the v1.
Ill provide more details later.

ESP is essentially a mystery feature now. It has to do with the integration of the V1 to other devices, as evidenced by the L menu feature. I got my 3.892 today. That sticker in the corner makes it perform 10x better than the previous model :p

But seriously, I love the 3.891 and the 3.892 is no different. IMO it is the best single unit on the market as of now and good enough to the point in which I will have 1 3.892 as a daily and 1 3.892 as a back-up.

Trying to figure out if:

1. I want to upgrade my unit.

2. Buy another unit and upgrade that.

3. Order a 3.892 and do some testing.

We have these damn K-band drones all over California, so this can come handy.....

Here is the $64,000 question:

Is the filter smart enough to knock out those alarm door signals or only traffic drones?

The local PD in the town next to me uses K-band, so I had to turn it up and turn it off each time I go grocery shopping.

When I pull up at my Barber shop, the K-band goes insane.................:wth:

lol, I might still do this.

I mean, it will allow me to keep K-band on, so that saves me having to program the unit every time I go into the town near by, where they use K-band exclusively for radar.

That PD sometimes hops on the freeway, so 3.892 basically can get me no falsing on the freeway from the drones, so if I do get a signal I know it's "hot".

I kind of miss having a backup unit..........I used to have 2 V1's when I had 2 cars...............

I got too much $$$$ and time...........LOL

The TSR works as a delay. You get a split-second delay on K-band. It does not differentiate otherwise. ESP may allow more advanced filtering (and likely will), but the TSR is simply for the drones.

If you have a 3.872, I say sell it and get a 3.892. I am seeing 3.872's get $350 on eBay all day if they are in great shape. Hell, if you can get that much for a unit that is a few years old, why not just sell it and then buy a whole new one with all new internals, new accessories, and a warranty? IMO the 3.891/2 has markedly fewer LIDAR falses as well and its made some jumps on 35.5 as well.

My 3.872 has new internals, due to my stupidity earlier this year, and we will leave it at that. LOL

It's performing great. I run Ka and Laser on it exclusively.

Someone is selling a V1.85 (3.892) on Ebay right now, they took photos of the manual guide and I can see the front cover has been redesigned if someone cares.

I'm not sure if I want to part out with my 3.872 yet, I may buy a new unit, we'll see.
