Uh H3LL NO !!!

Im saying send it in, reflash the FW , whatever
EVEN RETURN IT IF YOU DONT LIKE IT !!!

But to make blanket statements of Non Performance in an absolute nature as to the viability of a product based entirely on your opinion is reckless wouldn't you say ??

Oh-Ok that makes a bit more sense. FWIW-they have my RD as we speak. Hope to hear back from them later today about what they found.

We just received it yesterday. It might take over a week before you hear back from us to test it.

Oh ok, I was under the impression I would be receiving a replacement in the mean-time so I still hope that is the case.

Hi there Corey,

Thank you for sending that link over. I'm glad Randy was able to work with you a bit too. It looks like we're set to receive your device on Monday, and we'll likely have a replacement sent out within a business day. I'll get you tracking when it goes out the door.

Best,
Kristin

Well, I can tell you if it is a problem, the detector is going back for good, because my 9500IX has never had an issue locking out false K-band signals. The detector is in the same location in my vehicle, same location where I live and that detector is 10 years old. If you're telling me the Pro-M can't perform as good as a 10 year old detector, it's time to move on, lol.
And that was my verdict...back for good! For $450 I’ll keep my 9500ix for a year or two. Kudos to you for more patience than me

Have had my Pro M for less than a week and K band lock out issues that I believe are related to the US 16 FW. This issue I am having has been mentioned here before.
When I lockout a K band source like a sign on my Pro M, then there is no K band reception in the lockout area by the Pro M. To confirm what I have read on the Forum, all K band sources are locked out with that sign location.

I am wondering if @Jon at Radenso knows of any new FW coming to address this? Otherwise a awesome machine with a perfect size!

Doing fine and enjoying life and counting my cash ! And yes there are issues with the pro-m. Along with potential for good things but not there yet.

I spoke with no limits (Radenso) this morning and got an update. They said they are aware of multiple users from the latest batch of detectors reporting this issue. They said there will likely be a Firmware fix pushed out and are trying to narrow it down to specific serial numbers, but it is definitely a problem with their latest batch.

If you are having this issue, I would contact Radenso for a replacement Pro-M that is tested working before it leaves their facility or you can wait for a Firmware fix, but I would still report it to help further their research.

Did "Radenso" give any indication that this was associated with the latest firmware US 16? I'm asking because I'm still on US 15, and my detector works properly.

EDIT - Other than the other lockout bug not associated with the one you just reported.

No. It doesn't appear to be affecting older detectors. Only those from the "latest batch" on US16. So if you're on 15, you would be safe to upgrade to 16.

Now, I didn't fully understand this either. How can two detectors with the latest FW operate differently. But my assumption is that it's only affecting a specific serial number range. Maybe some small hardware or software tweak unrelated to the FW? I really don't know and can't speculate. I am sure I will have more answers by Friday. I was told I would be receiving a new device thoroughly tested before being shipped out on Friday.

I am assuming they are not fully aware of what is causing the issue yet and are still researching it. What I do know, is my device is not behaving normally and Radenso is on it!

Lately I have been burned by updating my detectors DSP RCM so I say if it works and its getting the job done I would wait.

Btw: BOTH COs stepped up to the Plate !!

I also wanted to share with you my customer service experience. After 2 prompts, "Press 1 for Retail, Press 1 for Technical Support" I was speaking to a live person from AMERICA in less than 1 minute.

Not only that, but me verbally telling him my name was an instant, "Oh! Hey Corey, I worked on your detector yesterday." No, what is your ticket number? Can you spell your name? Please give me your SS#, lol.

Part of me considered returning the Pro-M and waiting for the R7. That part is gone, left the building. I LOVE excellent Customer Service. It's nearly dead and gone so to see that at no limits (Radenso) I am sold on every device they make here on out, lol.

Thanks for update. I will call them and give my serial number. My example of the issue is on a unit from last year just before they dropped the price (and they rebated difference back to many of us, how cool is that). I forget exact date.

If you're referring to the "K" band lockout issue where locking out an area will lock out all "K" band in that particular area, this is not the same issue my device had. My device wasn't saving lockouts, just to be clear.

UPDATE: I'm being shipped a new Pro-M, going out today. I should have it for testing by Monday\Tuesday. I will be sure to record video and post it here! Thanks to everyones comments. I know I was a little short at times, my apologies for my frustrations.

I emailed NoLimits (Radenso) yesterday and the day before describing in detail my issue with the Pro M lock outs and Kristen says that it is normal for a GPS area to be locked out to all K band when locking out a K band source of some kind.
I said, no, it says this in the manual about how it is supposed to compare frequency, strength, and location. Kristen says the manual must be wrong because it is normal for everything to get locked out at any given location but it shouldn't do this at every location..
I wish I knew what to think about this. Too goofy.

Thank goodness I found this thread! I just "upgraded" from the XP after running it happily for 2+yrs. Not impressed with the Pro-M yet. I'm having the SAME EXACT lockout issues as the OP, as well as GPS lag & lockout/alert issues, unimpressive ramp-up (0 to 100 real quick!), and other erratic behavior. Same detection range or worse than the XP in current form, especially with the lagging alert ramp up. By the time it squaks 2x it's already over 8 on signal strength for a constant on with linear approach speed. I've had it beep once then apparently mute to a 7+ strength Ka 33.8, while driving 50+mph. Settings should be good to go as far as mute and AC speed thresholds! BTW I was running slightly tuned settings until I noticed the odd behavior, then reset to defaults. Issues still exist.

I'm trying to adjust from the XP, but I've lost confidence that the Pro-M is performing properly.

I'll be staying tuned for updates on this thread. Bottom line - I think something is wrong. Will be calling NoLimits Monday.

Sooooo, you know Mill creek bridge where outdoor pool is? That your speed is sign I locked out and it remains so and the ProM silently shows plus 8 signal strength which is great but are folks saying ya but it will also lockout for real EPS boys with their ford trucks sitting close by as well? #confused

ok so i just checked and the area I am talking about, my unit on this instance is fine. The L shows up on the screen, signal strength is high but no sound. So if the L is present then it's all good? #assume

Yep! Yours is working. I returned mine because no lock-outs were saving at all.

Definitely call Monday! This is exactly what my issue is/was. I receive my new unit Monday or Tuesday and look forward to testing. I was told my new unit was properly tested before sending so if this one has issues, I will be calling back, lol.

I don't think it is working right based on the manual. I have mine locked out at the Millcreek pool for the K band speed sign but what is happening is the whole area is now locked out to any K band signal (GPS area). The Pro M will pick up MRCD and Ka signals and alert, but no K band, including the locked out source will alert.
If the "L" is present, then the Pro M of yours is indicating a locked out source, in this case the speed sign. "All good", you ask? Yes, in this case because apparently there is no K band used by City of Edmonton, but anywhere else, beware.
