    Just a heads up: I was traveling between Incline Village and Reno today, which is connected by the Mt Rose Highway. There’s a 25mph recreational area on an otherwise 45mph Highway where kids are sledding.

    At any rate, there was a Sheriff running CO K at 24.125 with a customer. Confirmed by Max360Ci that the arrows flipped passing his car, no other plausible transmitters nearby.

    So if you’re driving through Nevada it would help to keep K on. The 360Ci worked like a charm. Was driving in Auto mode, and this is an area I frequent so known speed signs are locked out. Seeing this K band signal made me suspicious despite not having any legit K hits in over a year!

    Best thing about the Max Ci 360 is the arrows plus the frequency readout on the display, something not even the V1 has.

    Last time I was up in that area, I had my STiR+, which was falsing to nearly every BSM system out there. Can't wait to try out the Max Ci 360 up there.

    I think I had 1 BSM false from an Acura getting too close, over the course of the whole 6 hour drive.

    Definitely one of the quietest detectors I have used, and it doesn’t compromise much if at all on range.

    Got hit again today in the city of Incline Village, also a sheriff but a pickup truck this time. Exactly 24.125 again.... I presume this is a specific K hand gun centered there.
