    Yup it was verified in a box out in the Escort garage taped together with duct tape. So it is true.

    i mean, 1 inch improvement in range can be considered a "minor improvement" right?

    When you can update do you have to reset everything? I saw an article that Getso was in my area( Rhode Island) on radartest do I get a lot more falses if turned on and will range drop? To see article please go radartest.com click on Escort Ex and Radenso Pro M being compared. Scan down could be in the middle or bottom to see where it's used. I noticed R.I. just added some speed cams in Providence so maybe that's the spot. Then have be getting so many people. Not sure if there the Gatso 3 or 4. Does EX pick up both?

    From everything I have been told, and read, that is the best thing to do.

    I sent my EX in for service before the warranty ran out because range was scary short. I was picking LEO's coming from the opposite direction at around 200 feet. My Ex was segmented, BSM off and in highway mode. I mean I saw the lights on his roof. Had previously called Escort and they tried to tell me that he was probably using instant on. Bought that for a long time until I sent it in and swapped it for my V1. My V1 started picking up those signals from over a quarter mile away.

    I say any improvement in distance would be welcomed. I'm sure my EX will have 1.7 when returned by Escort. Will be interesting to see what they did to the unit or what story they will spin if they tell me there was no problem.
