So it’s random intermittently alerting to 34.8? How long has this been? Near the house? Satellite dish maybe alerting to Ka if it’s in a residential area.
Yup. It's been like that from the start I believe. It goes off wherever I am. Doesn't matter if I'm in a residential area or in the middle of nowhere. I initially thought it was picking up some random scatter but I started paying more attention to it and it's always 2 blips on 34. 8 and silence

Do you have some examples? It may be that both detectors were terrain limited or other factors like frequency may have been at work. If you are having issues with what you suspect is sub par range, creating a thread would help diagnose.

Follow-up questions. How long? And is it still under warranty?

I bought it maybe 6ish months ago or more but I only took it out of the box 2 months ago. I assume it's under warranty but Its not worth the hassle. I may just go for an r3 and use this for tests and whatever.

I may try to reflash the firmware again and see. If that changes anything

R1 7A0017## Second replacement
On my first replacement unit the audio jack quit after several months.
On this unit the audio jack quit working properly after a single trip to work on Tuesday after receiving it Monday afternoon.
Inserting the plug about 3/4 in and pressing forward will get it to work. So there seems there is probably an issue of these things being properly soldered.
:rolleyes:

It will detect radar, the audio jack is defective. Rather important when 99% of travel is done on motorcycles since the speaker is insufficiently loud.

How bout we move you into the no issues R1 category or do you want off completely?

7A0107xx R3

Sub par range. Confirmed by testing side by side with a DFR7. Not on at the same time, of course.
