I had the opportunity to take my GT-360 with me this week when I was traveling. I ended driving about 400 miles in Northern New Mexico and I'm pretty impressed. I had 8 KA encounters and 15 K encounters. Most of the KA encounters were LEO's driving in the opposite direction with the exception on one that was an outright trap using I/O. The GT-360 sniffed it out with plenty of warning. I did get an insane KA range detection, 2.5 miles+, but with how open terrain is and going down a hill I was not too surprised. It was nice to see the rear detection after I passed. One of the K encounters was I/O with the LEO sitting at the bottom of a hill. The GT-360 sniff out the radar just before I came to the crest allowing me to slow down in plenty of time.

The area did not have that heavy traffic but I received zero BSM falses which really impressed me. When the deecetor when off I reacted and was rewarded with a LEO spotting every time on the highway. When I was driving on non-highway roads in what I would call a couple of small cities I did notice the GT-360 picking up some door openers. I ended up passing these a couple of times and it auto locked out those perfectly. I was running Escort Live but I'm not sure that really helped me but I felt good about helping others.

I gotta say for the sub $300 price I paid I'm really impressed with this unit.

Just drove 1200 miles with GT 360.
Gave sufficient warning on all encounters except for one.
LEO had great position on a tuff curbing turn. Not as sensitive as R3 but, have to admit it’s quieter.
BSM seems to be limited to Honda Pilots so far.

New Mexico had a lot of K band when I was driving out there back in 2006 also. Thanks for sharing your experiences out there.

It's mostly Ka now, constant on, with some laser in ABQ.

Curious, where in northern NM were you driving to have 23 encounters in 400 miles? Last time I drove through NM I-10E @ Lordsburg, I-25N to Santa Fe then I-285 to Alamosa CO I had a grand total of ZERO.

Had a similar experience when I was in Iowa with I/O 33.8 on a Max 360. Got annoying, actually. Had a trooper in front of me shooting I/O, but that less challenging terrain combined with the arrows gave me plenty of warning and knowledge of what was ahead of me. Almost too much, tbh. Didn't take very long to figure out the situation.

That I/O K band, though....that's what worries me a little about filtering, but I have a feeling that with selective K I/O, it's not much different than selective Ka, especially when there's a hill crest in the way. Was TSR on or off? I run my Max 360 with it off and although I still get falses from a few BSM sources, TSR isn't really necessary like it is on my Redline.
