Some data points on the cost of ownership of two different Tesla's at 400k and 100k miles:
2016 Model X maintenance and charging costs after 400k: $29,000 - https://electrek.co/2020/05/11/tesla-model-x-extreme-mileage-repair-maintenance/
2018 Model 3 Long Range maintenance and charging costs...
@green FWIW I played around with the same idea of using a phone's mic to pickup RD beeps, and at least for me it seemed possible to detect the specific frequencies that are used on Escort and V1's for each band (obviously no other encoded info), even in a moving car with the radio playing. That...
Yeah, I miss the volume knob and mute slider too, but it's been speculated that it was difficult to find a supplier for that 1 off knob and in Mike Valentine's interview with Vortex, he specifically mentioned that they got so many calls from customers who didn't understand what the mute volume...
Car and Driver says 5.4 seconds 0-60 MPH, which sounds right given it's 4400lb curb weight. Still quick, but that 1 second difference is quite a bit.
Yeah, the stigma that the MX-5 is slow really doesn't hold up anymore with the ND generation. The ND2 has similar 0-60 and 1/4 times to a same year VW GTI, which are both considered quick but not fast cars.
I test drove an RF GT-S last year and would have pulled the trigger if the interior...
My V1G2 also starts with the ignition everytime (although I'm using a savvy unit for power in the OBDII port). The V1G2 is also supposed to have an integrated BOB (Brown Out Booster) for unsteady ACC power.
My car also has push button ignition and start/stop. Thee V1G2 will power-cycle with...
Ok, so you want a unicorn radar detector that doesn't exist, and for some reason you spend your time incessantly posting in the V1 section your dissatisfaction with VR and the V1G2, which you had a short amount of time with and don't own, because it's not the unicorn you expected.
We get it...
Looking at my records, I ordered mine 6/5/2015 from alpriorityusa.com. Is there 100% certainty that all shipments from 6/1/2015 onward are still supported? I certainly don't doubt you, I just want to make sure I'm OK since it was so close to my purchase date.
USB 2 (type B) appears to only have 4 pins:
+5 V power
Reading up on rs232 it looks like there's a minimal 3-wire implementation and 5-wire so Stinger must be using a...
Before you send it in or upgrade, make sure you have the latest firmware and do a factory reset by holding down Mark and BRT while powering the Max2 on to clear any bit rot that might be in there. You'll have to reconfigure your settings but it might help. Your GPS lockouts will remain.
I used Detector Tools Pro on Windows to update my "79" serial number Max360 to v1.13. In the settings I see the "K Notch" option now.
I also updated Escort Live on my Android phone to v3.1.60. When I connect to the Max360 and go into Settings | Radar Detector Settings in Escort Live, I do not...
