The DFW area is huge. Expect to see both K and Ka as well as occasional lidar.
Is it more Ka? Or evenly split? Here in the NC Raleigh area, I can turn K off and be safe. I last ran into K 2 years ago. It’s rare. I am trying to help out a beginner user who lives just north of DFW so I am askin’ you Texas what’s in use down there. Not sure if K is rare or it’s in decent use to keep it always on.

You’ll probably see a lot of ka with some k here and there. I’d keep them both on.

@Critic got your message about the DFW area. I am in NC so I don’t know about threats there. But I’ll point you here. Post your questions here.

DO NOT TURN K BAND OFF! When you go thru DFW area, there are numerous little municipalities you could go through. You'll see Ka, K, and laser. Bedford-Euless has agressive laser use. I-20 and I-30 thru Ft. Worth could have laser. There is a boatload of traffic, but keep your guard up! Waze works well! Safe travels in that concrete jungle.

Dallas area is tough...it's a mixture. (K / Ka / Laser - mostly KA).

Just ask @Brainstorm69

I usually let someone else speed for me in Dallas area there are enough crazy drivers lol...
