Are most Benzes equipped with BSMs? I can't even recall the last time I picked up a Benz BSM! Probably not since I have run either the V1 or the Redline as a daily driver and that has been a few years.

Only found it with 2018 - 2019 Benz's

1.50 with K block is killer! So, this morning on my way to work I start getting a 24.201 alert, I think to myself dammit!, I'm already on city mode with K filter and TFS on, now what? I realized it was a good ole' Honda CRV! Then I remembered that Jane and I had just updated all 3 of our R1's to 1.50 last night! I had turned K block off on all 3 however because I didn't think I would need it, WRONG! I reached up, went in the menu and turned on K block. Silence! It shut it right up! Not another peep! I then went to advanced mode at 70% with K filter and TFS, still nothing! I was going to try highway mode but he turned off before I could do it. I'M SOLD ON K BLOCK!

That's what I'm saying..

When they got K Block right on the R7, it was a wow moment. It had me moving my R7 from car to car. Now that the R3 has it, I leave it in my daily driver beater. Yesterday on my way home from work.. around 100 miles because I had stopped to see my parents, I counted 6 BSM polluters that K block filtered out. That was within the 1st 30 mins of my drive. 5 were CRVs and 1 was a Jeep Cherokee. There were probably others that I didn't see because I was in rush hour traffic in the go lane of a 3 lane road. I only had 2, yes two BSM falses, in the same time frame. One a Honda Pilot and the other a Mazda 3. I stopped counting once I got to my parents. K Block is the BOMB!

I agree 100%! As soon as I get home tonight I'm going to jump in Jane's Mustang and turn K block on, then I'm going straight to my Boss 302 and turn it on as well!

I've been getting quick alerts at 24.100 and only one time did I see a Benz next to me. Most times, I don't see anything else around me within 300ft, maybe more. Are you sure the 24.100 is Benz?
I get 24.100 and 24.101 almost constantly now. My hand is on the mute button more than it is the steering wheel...... LOL

Just bought this LOL... I am not sure what you are all doing but I get 20 hits before I get home each day. How are you all remembering what you frequency hit you and what was around you at the time and where it happened? LOL.

Maybe I am just to old.

What are your settings? Do you have K filter off? Are they stationary alerts you haven't locked out?

I don't ever remember seeing falses at 24.100. I remember 24.200 and 24.160 because I see them enough to remember them lol

It's not age, because I'm old... Some of us are just more aware of whats going on with the RD.. When my detector goes off, I usually look at the screen to check the frequency because it can tell me if it's BSM or legit. When I see something I don't normally see, like 24.100, my head starts spinning trying to figure out what might be causing it.

I still remember the 1st time I saw 24.100. It was last year, heading south on I 95 near MM 70. Both North and South bound were clear, I didn't see any other car around me.. and there's trees on both sides of the road... I couldn't figure out where it came from. On my way home that evening, it went off again in that same area.. Happened a few more times there, but then it stopped. I still see hits on 24.100, in different areas, but like I said before, there's really nothing I can point to that sets it off... Oh and it's never any ramp up. It's usually really quick, just a couple beeps then its gone.

I will have to post me settings up later. Been out of town for work. I know K-Filter is on. Not sure if they are stationary..... I am in Calgary Alberta. I get them on Memorial, Crowchild and on the QE2 highway between Calgary and Red Deer. (not after red deer)

So I finally listened to Bravo and The person above to switch to kwide with the new k block. I couldnt believe that the R3 was even quieter running k wide with k block at 70%.:) Anyways, solves that issue about missing alerts... truly amazing detector.
Thanx for the input and help guys!

Did the FW to 1.50. Now to seek out the K band cops in the area to see whats what.......
Just be aware that the FW 1.50 upgrade may act like LEO repellent for awhile lol.

Well, I did the upgrade but shut the K Block off for now. I want to see what they run and see how close to the freq they may be. Toughest speed traps this side of the Mississippi

I have got several hits going through traffic lights that have cameras on them. Never got them before. I have not said anything about it. But, will confirm this weekend. When I pass back through same ones.

For me it’s attracted a load of 24.168 - 24.170.:rolleyes: Where did they all come from ?
For me it made all the 24.160ishs stand out thanks to all the new Chrysler/Jeep POSs out there.

City mode with K filter and TFS calms those down for me. I was hoping to be able to go back to advanced mode at 70%. I guess not!

Yes, but I don't think my phone emits much IR that I know of. Pixel 2 XL.
I think the rear camera has an IR focusing whatchamacallit, but it's more or less blocked off by the phone vent holder.
Can confirm my Pixel 2 XL causes laser false on my R3.

Still on 1.37 here. Saw the test that the Ka range wasn't affected with 1.50 but I'm still very hesitant to pull the trigger on updating. Waiting to see what the non-bandaid fix is that's in the works.

Not sure what the trepadation to upgrading the FW is. AFAIK you can down rev the FW back if you don't like it.
