Radar X-band off-axis I/O and I would have regreted it if I was speeding.

Hello, everybody.

First of all, thank you to all of you for your tips and specially to @RadarScout. After realizing how low I had gone with the sensitivity settings, I changed them accordingly, as follows:

Advanced mode
X band 100%
K band 40%
Ka band 100%
Signal Priority

And there is an update today...

LEO's here were sweeping around severely and earlier today I happened to be "lucky" I/O blasted again, then detection from behind of other leo's clocking the traffic ahead, and finally another happy passing by. First time X band again and the second - K band. I'm glad I found out my mistake in time because today the trap was very surprising again with no Waze warning and help in advance and this time things could have become extremely ugly for me. Only my R1 was there to help me sniffing the I/O's of the poor drivers ahead. It wasn't some crazy long distance detection, because - hey - it was a cunning I/O off-axis clocking again, but was more than enough to safe me from accelerating past a turn jumping in the mouth of the beast. And I usually do at normal circumstances. The second clocking wasn't so surprising because I saw them in open from a distance while they were blasting whoever they might have chosen in front of me and ahead of them. Third part is just passive trap, after maybe active earlier, with a customer with them, all of it in just a few hours. There's the footage:


Additional footage from today. This crossroad always drives me crazy with all kinds of different boggy alarms. At night there is MRCD, on a daylight K band, Ka band, laser... It's a complete alarm mess there :stare: LOL But I am well aware now, that there are all sorts of redlight and speedcams and I always pass over with caution.

You live in radar purgatory. I'm glad it's not that way where I live. Be glad you have the right tool for the job

Good thing you kept digging into your settings. It's crucial to understand how settings will either make you or break you depending on your threat environment.

Clearly the I/O in your first video could have been detected if you had not been in City mode and changing that setting resulted in a much better outcome for this latest video.

How have the amount of falses gone up since you switched to X band 100%?

Oh, you're so right! This is about to become the Instant Hell here. It is not only the tool but the good people like you here to give us the perfect advice. Thanks to you, folks, the tool is now set as it should and better. And then follows Round 2 and... R1 WINS crushing the cunning I/O! :cheers:

If a had not but I was. :( I don't know why I was mislead this way, I thoght that city mode would be too intense but it turnes out that it is not sufficiant for the IO's. Luckily God helped me on that day. Yeah, sure the false alerts have risen but not that much, I use 100% only around or outside the city. K band is much more often met and highly annoying as you know. I will test gradually advanced with X at say 70% in town and so on until I get to the proper setting. Here I miss R3 but never mind, I already love R1 even without GPS. I will find its proper balance eventually. We need to know each other for a little while. :)
