That's not all I just got behind a CRV at the drive through at lunch and was getting a 24.199! I know that's not supposed to happen with K block on! I had K filter on. I turned TFS on while still behind him and it shut right up! Go figure!
I think you should try reinstalling the firmware on that R1 because I've been behind dozens of CRVs in the last week and I haven't seen one alert in the K Block range. I have over 500 miles on v1.50 with 0 PTs in the K Block Range. TSF off the entire time with 400 miles in Hwy mode.

Running my R7 with K 70%/TSF off/K Filter on/K Block on... A little while ago today I went from Lawrence to Somerville Mass (very very congested) and I didn't get 1 falsey. Amazing!

I have as well! this was a fluke I hope. I was behind one the other day before I turned it on and it went crazy at 24.199. I turned it on on the fly and it shut right up.

This was weird! The first day after we updated all 3 of our R1's i was behind a CRV and my R1 in my drive to work Mustang started screaming 24.199. I had K filter and TFS on and was running city mode! I remembered that I had installed 1.50, but turned off K block. I reached up and turned it on in the menu and it shut right up! I then went to Advanced mode with TFS and K filter at 70% and it was still silent, until today at the Bojangles drive through behind a CRV! My R1 started to alert, not crazy but still a random alert. I looked up and saw 24.198 and thought that was awful close to 24.199! It was all over the place after that from 24.120 to 24 211 and then I saw 24.199! I had been trying to run it with 70% K filter and no TFS with K block just to see how it would do. As soon as I turned TFS back on, it was silent again for at least 10 minutes till he drove away!

I wonder if there is a strong signal override in the firmware just in case you run into real police radar at that frequency? Does anybody want to tune their K band radar for 24.198-24.199 to see how K block handles that?

Trip down the NE Extension in PA from Scranton area to exit 31. My R3 was non stop churping! I saw a ton in the 24.100 - 24.199 range. I had to silence the alerts at least 50 different times. TFS OFF K block on. Very disappointing. On the V1 with the software I can manually silence any frequency range I want to. This is what we need on the R3. There are so many driving environments that one size does not fit all. Thats where the V1 customization with the app add ons excels.

So why didn't you have TSF on?

I hear you, but I"m also glad it doesn't have the K-band delay that 1.46 has.
Yes every update has it's own advantages. MRCD is more wanted by European users. But it would be amazing if they developed K-band segmentation like Redline EX, it could be very well adapted to any conditions then.

Long rides in the car yesterday. The K notch filter does appear to do its job very well. However, why do I feel like I'm seeing 24.160 and 24.168 GHz alerts all the time now? I am getting a lot of alerts on those two frequencies all of a sudden.

This seems to be a trend. You're not the only one to bring this up.

Uniden stated that K Block is temporary solution, I will be very excited to see what 1.52 has, maybe finally that K-band segmentation.

I hardly ever pick up Jeeps in my area and the Chrysler mini-vans are a true, rare sight nowadays...

I've seen those frequencies a number of times even before the update to 1.50 with Pacifica's and Jeeps.
