What Frequencies are you all using to apply the box muting feature? I am getting hammered with BSM, as many are. Just trying to figure out what you all are using. I'm considering using 24.090-24.160. I'm in Ohio and run to WV, VA, NC, SC, KY, TN, GA, IN, PA and MI.

Hey, while we're at it! :) I'm running the following on KA. Good for the States mentioned?

33.7-33.9
34.6-34.8
35.4-35.6

Thanks,
Shumax

Don't know how that could possibly work out in your favor.

Here's a great post on where each radar band is centered and K is centered on 24.125 or 24.150 which makes boxing this area a bad idea:


What firmware version of the V1 do you have?

Thanks, all! I am using V1 connection. I believe my version is 3.8495. I will check in a bit.

What are your K band muting logic settings? It should be on by default, but confirm TMF2 is enabled.

Are you running JBV1 (Android only, free) or V1Driver (Android and iOS, $10)? Both are far superior to the factory V1C app and provide many more features. JBV1 has several built-in BSM muting options, and V1Driver can auto-snooze BSM alerts. Both will also emulate SAVVY functionality to give you speed based BSM muting, and JBV1 can adjust this speed dynamically based on PSL. Both also provide auto-lockouts, which will quiet down stationary false sources.

Make sure you aren't defining a 33.8 sweep, in Euro mode the detector will automatically sweep this range.

3.8945 is the model, FYI. I followed Vortex's suggestions on the KA sweeps, FYI. Amen on the 33.8.

On the k-band, I am: Self-mute logic ON. Time period - 7. No muting above 3 lights- ON. Un-mutes above 5 lights - on. K-band rear mute - ON.

What I am trying to accomplish is to quiet down the trash from GM, Acura, Honda and the Pacifica. Now, Mazda has become just as bad. I appreciate it won't be perfect, but it's annoying to the point, I ignore the V1 now. That's no good, either.

Suggestions are welcome - thank you!

JBV1 has built in muting for GMs, Acuras, Hondas, and Pacificas. For Mazdas, I define a K band box mute and only apply it to side/rear alerts. 90%+ of the Mazda alerts I get are just as they pass me and I get a strong rear arrow ~24.124 alert. The box mute takes care of this nicely, but still allows for a visual alert or punch through as desired. The few BSMs that get through can be snoozed by double tapping the alert.

This is all great - thank you! So, I run an I-Phone, so what are my options better than the V1 Connection? I've used the driver, but admit it wasn't user friendly enough, so I stopped. Perhaps I need to dig back into that more?

Yeah, give V1Driver another shot. Vortex has a good video on the setup and features here: How to Configure V1Driver Settings - Vortex Radar
