A good thing to have. I am just glad it is not as bad as it was a few FWs ago. Today was very heavy BSMs and the Filter was doing its job. What is strange, with the App on the Blue light goes away and it did for 3 miles straight with a few times a fade blue light for 1/4sec. Any future thought that the light fade in/out or be a dimmer light.
Are you talking about the External LED or the LED on the wired controller. When using BT the wired controller should not be illuminated.

When it is just the Control unit (no BT), the filters will not alert leaving the Blue light on CP and Ext LED are on till the threshold was passed in City Y or R.

When BT is on Control Panel is blank and only the Ext LED is lite. When any K band (in this instance) is detected, the Ext LED then goes blank till either threshold is met to quiet or signal is not present anymore.

What would be nice, a fade/dimmer LED of Blue or Red or maybe Yellow?....to indicate system is still active. Looking to forward to that once discussed dedicate display, if still in the works.

I also would like to see a change here. I dislike having the LED go dark with no warning or message. If something is being filtered, just filter it. We all put our settings the way we want them. If my settings filter an alert, that means I don't want to be bothered with that alert - still presenting it but in a different way (e.g. turning off external LED, flashing something on the app, etc.) kind of defeats the purpose...

If you run the App full time, the app does provide a Visual that something is being filtered. As the Ext LED goes dark, the City Icon is flashing with and I believe is indicates the signal(s) just not frequency.

I run Waze with the ALP app in background. Other changes I would like to see which I like in another App for another device.

Exactly what I do *not* want to happen - if something is filtered, don’t distract me with it! Leave the LED lit and don’t flash anything on the app.

I have been getting this error for a few weeks now too. no K band sensors on my car. at first i thought it was related to the firmware update but at the same time that i updated the firmware i also changed my profile settings to include K Traffic Filter which i hadn't been using before.

after messing around a bit i think its a problem with running the K Traffic Filter when you are also running MRCD.

K Traffic Filter On, K Filter On, and MRCD On - i get lots of antenna disconnected errors. 4 or 5 sometimes in a 5 mile drive.

K Traffic Filter On, K Filter Off, and MRCD On - occasional antenna disconnected errors. not nearly as many as above.

K Traffic Filter On, K Filter On, and MRCD Off - so far no problems with these settings.

K Traffic Filter Off, K Filter On, and MRCD On - these are the settings i've been running forever. no problems so far with these.


The disconnected error seems to happen most in traffic near lock out locations. that might just be a coincidence or maybe the cars are blocking the signal and causing the delay that brd was talking about above. just a guess. hope it helps
I have a customer with a Porsche 911 GTS with a Net radar DSP and he has had the same antenna disconnect warnings for long time now and we have changed out the DSP and the RG3 modules and he still has the disconnect problems. I just wanted to ask you if your settings of K Traffic Filter Off, K Filter On, and MRCD On have stopped all of your antenna disconnect warnings in the last month.

I get the disconnect warnings, I believe its more so with the MRCD on that causes the slow down problems BRD mentioned and likely the K Traffic filter is a lot more CPU heavy than the K-Filter, hence the disconnect warning in that combination decreases. When I had the old NetRadar and MRCD antennas, the MRCD would go off like crazy constantly. I've noticed now that when I come up to vehicles that made the MRCD antenna chirp I occasionally get the antenna disconnect.

I don't get them often, maybe ~1 a 200 km trip on the highway, I imagine it would be a lot worse in city.

I'm running K Traffic, K-Filter and MRCD on.

Yes, no disconnect problems with those settings for me. Have him give those a try. Hope it works out for him.

Thank you for the your original post and for the reply it is much appreciated.
My customer was running K traffic, K-filter and MRCD on with all K bands on with Ka bands segmented and with X band turned off in the city and he would get about 6 disconnects in a 15-20 drive and after his first disconnect warning he would always get a second warning within 2 mins. We turned K traffic off and it helped but he would still get the odd antenna disconnect warning.
We sold him the DSP mainly for the MRCD because he lives in Edmonton the photo radar capital so I hope we don't have to turn the MRCD off. I am just wondering if the antenna disconnects warnings are a normal part of having the Net radar DSP.

For the most part I believe it is at the current point in time. From the information that I gathered from BRD posts and few on the forum the hardware is constantly doing checks to make sure that all the sensors are still connected. What happens when a disconnect occurs like we have been seeing is the CPU is bogged down doing the filtering and the "Antenna is working with no errors" message is delayed and thus fails the sensor check in the expected time period and presents the disconnect warning.

Following the antenna disconnect message I can confirm that the antenna is still scanning and I don't really get too alarmed by the message now. If someone could confirm this, it would be great. I don't know the inner workings of the system, just how it reacts and a bit of signal processing background.

I have both F/R DSP's running K wide, Ka narrow, K filter on and never get the disconnect msg. If I turn MRCD on get frequent 24.100 alerts even driving on remote mountain hwys with no traffic around and definitely no cameras, so my RD works fine except that MRCD detection is useless.
