You say “2-5-8” but out of curiosity what are the actual sweeps? Or is that a JBV1 prepackaged thing? It doesn’t have anything to do with this specific video, just curious.

That K detection in the video doesn’t seem bad at all. I think you’re a little too “on top of it” because you’re looking for it to disappoint you. If you can’t shake that, then just return it and get the R7, because otherwise you’ll never be truly happy with it. But if you can, you might fall in love.

There s no way any detector would pick it up on ramp if its facing away. There s no way.
Tell my Redline-O and R3 That. If I had video of that, I'd post that also.

Just curious if you have any video of the "code brown" moments? That would help in giving some perspective

I commend you for giving the V1 a shot in your driving area. I did the same with the Redline, Magnum and R3. Sold them all as the V1 was a better fit for me.

Post those code brown vids so we can see what your encounters were like

This is the worst encounter that I had in a decade

None that I saved. I'll make sure I pay attention these next 2 weeks and post what I feel is short to me. If that will suffice?

I would say certainly not reliably, given it's 3000' away. Unless the signal was reflecting left off of this stop sign...lol

I hope you guy's don't think I'm crying wolf. Perhaps I have some settings wrong. I know it's getting late, but any help would be welcomed.

@Rocky Road - you haven't said whether he's always pointing that same direction. I'm curious.

I believe you but one hundred percent the officer had his SUV positioned in a different way (facing down the road towards you).

Either on that side, or on the other side facing towards the school.

So based on the video, and the position of the deputy, do most of you feel that was decent? That's the impression I'm getting.

I don't disbelieve you. I've seen the R do some pretty incredible things in testing with radars pointed slightly away. It could be that it's catching a side lobe and the height of the on-ramp helps some. Do you get a brief alert and then some silence before it picks it back up?

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor??
The V1 is a fantastic RD. I’d love to see one up close and personal and usage. However to say that it’s got the range of a Redline-O, or the R1/R3 is a bit of a stretch.

Again, not bashing the V1.

The off axis of the R is wild. I’ve picked up off axis that just blew my mind.

Yes, I'm not saying it's a full blast, It's a sniff, then as i pass the 1st light in the video, it ramps up.

Matter of fact, I have a video on here of my R3 that was picking up multiple signals, and I never knew where they were coming from. Turns out they were on an on ramp facing away, not towards me. I think I named it disco lights and a tour bus. let Me find that.

That was very reasonable off axis, gun pointing away from you with TMF2 enabled. More than adequate from the kill zone.

I would also recommend putting the Ka responsiveness on high. It does not change the sensitivity but it does provide a more urgent ramp up which should be set that way from the factory, IMO.

@Rocky Road Go to the Alert Log in the app. Tap the day of that encounter, then the alert at the time of the encounter. You might google how to take a screenshot on your phone, since it varies by manufacturer.
