I started seeing 24.100 with fw 1.48. As for Benz at the frequency, I'm still shocked it's Benz because I don't really see a Benz around when I see that freq. Also, I thought I heard all European vehicles used a much higher frequency for BSM because of European rules.I did see a 24.100 the other day, but couldn't tell what caused it. I'll BOLO for Mercedes if it happens again.
Just between us @GTO_04 , I also made several runs against my K band gun just for s**** and grins with my V1 and R1 running side by side less than a foot apart in my Boss 302. I made at least 10 runs and the outcome was exactly the same every time, it made no difference at all whether I ran them together or apart. I'm not telling anybody else to do this however, I just wanted to see how it would come out since I'm going to try running my V1/R1 combo in my Boss 302 for a while. The 3.872 V1 is running Ka band only with Ka guard off and pop on. I've also run them against 35.5 and bench tested them together against Q/T shots and all is good! I wouldn't try this at home however!If your K/Ka band detection has deteriorated that much, there is something wrong and it needs to be sent in for service. If reduced sensitivity was an issue with the update, I would think more users would be reporting it. Also, don't run the V1 and R at the same time, as they are likely to interfere with each other.
Reverting back to 1.37 would be worth a try to see if detection improves again.
Most of that is going to be at much higher frequencies, around 76-77 GHz.You are all about to have a fit.
More false from cars are here, and it's not BSMs.
Someone behind you or approaching from the front setting your RD off?
Start thinking the adaptive cruise control (radar driven) now coming on everything such as basic Tercels and high end Mercs.
Stronger and more varied than BSM systems.
Used one myself recently with no affect on my R7 but still, the amount of variety of makes and systems will undoubtably create more trouble for CMs.
None of these use K band because it isn't high enough resolution. All are either W band (77 GHz) radar, laser (eg Volvo's), or camera vision systems (eg Subaru).What about the current emergency braking features that apply brake if you don't? Front and rear systems. So the front could be what Mercedes is setting off detectors?
To my knowledge and experience, this transition has already occurred and there are very, very few vehicles out there with forward facing radar in any of the common bands. Our own cars both are running around 77 GHz and it's on whenever the engine is running. The only current car that I suspect is the Mazda SUV. That thing is kind of a menace.Key term is “Going to”.
Doesn’t solve what’s there now and for years down the road. The cars that are doing it now will still be on the roads for the next 15 years.
