Re: If this is a bug it's a "deadly" one
I can attest to the Redline and V1 baking in the sun with no adverse effects. However, my Bel V965 and Escort 8500 used to give error messages, stop working, random reboots ,etc only in hot weather if left on the dash.Excellent point! I don't think it's a good thing to leave any RD on the windshield and let it bake in a hot car. IME, doing so caused K band detection my Magnum to drop out without warning, and caused 33.8 detection to disappear on my 3.894 V1. OTOH my Redlines seemed to be fine in the heat, as well as my R1. But why chance it?
As far as cell phone interference I have not seen that so far with the R1. At our Midwest Test Event there were 3 cell phones on at the same in my car, and it had no impact on detection time. The only thing that has interfered with it so far has been my Baofeng UV-5R radio and that is a polluting machine lol. I don't use bluetooth and my cell is about 2-3 feet away from my R1 so maybe that made interference less likely.
