Normally I can turn on a v1, and unlike the escorts or ummm, nope i think just the escorts, it will alerts to a signal immediately. However, i was parked in front of a village Inn yesterday, when i pulled in it went crazy on K band coming from i'm guessing the alarm system.

When I was leaving I turned it on, and it was probably a good three seconds before it went crazy on K band again.

The only thing I can think of is since the custom sweeps is set at i think three dots before it alerts, maybe it takes that extra few seconds to get up to that point, ummmm IDK.

Custom sweeps only effect Ka-band, while muting options only effect X/K-band.

The muting options are time based (3,4,5,7,10,15,20,30) seconds, signal based (don't mute if the first signal detected is over 3 or later becomes greater than 5 dots), and direction based (mute rear antenna).

Even with the muting options enabled you'll still get a visual notification and bogey count, then an audible alert once one of the un-mute criteria is met.

Which mode are you running in (A, L, l, C, c, U, u)?

Big C is K-band on, small c is K-band off. Hold the mute button to switch between the two. :)
Similarly, big U and small u do the same in euro configurations.

@Bossdad71 The V1 takes 15 seconds to boot up. You sure it wasn't just going through it's boot sequence? After that delay it will detect again.

that might be very well what it was. i'm just not familiar with all the little perks of the v1. still learning. 87gn set it up, and i just put in in the window and go.

@Bossdad71 The learning curve on the various V1 settings is pretty steep, but eventually you'll have them all memorized like a proper V1 zombie.

When Euro mode (big C) or logic mode (little l) is enabled then the muting settings take effect.

@Tallyho I just timed mine since it's sitting on my desk and in Euro mode with TMF enabled mine takes 11 seconds to boot and start alerting to my bushnell. ;-)
