Thanks for your time, efforts, and $$ for testing! I wouldn't feel too bad about running the 9500iX. I think if you had the radar gun above ground level, the 9500iX would have done better. Having the radar gun that low really can kill signal strength. That said, it definitely allowed the...
Strange. It's just a pdf. Works for me. [EDIT: are you trying to look at it on a device that doesn't have a pdf viewer installed?]
Not very exciting now that I look at it. How did they get away without showing the internals split apart and the inside of the horn?
Were you running K Verifier on or off? The multiple K bogeys doesn't happen when passing Hondas and Acuras with KV on in my experience. But I have seen what you are describing (not the lockup, but the multiple K-band bogeys) when I passed a Honda Odyssey with KV off.
Since you say you are leaning towards the V1G2 with an app, that's probably the way to go. I have both. Performance is simlar. V1G2 slightly better on Ka based on my experience. R7 better on K, but with more BSM falses but better reactivity. R7 basically all-in-one unit. V1G2 with an app...
As long as you don't have super difficult conditions with lots of curves and vegetation, etc., I think you'll be ok with Big L. Does V1Driver have anything where it can change profiles based on the speed you are driving?
Yeah, I'm interested in your and @Kennyc56's testing results. Have you ever published them and I just missed it? It seems like you two either have really strong V1G2s or maybe I just have one that's a little weaker than avg. @Jag42's V1G2 seems a bit stronger than mine.
Yeah, I think it's much more likely to be a power issue than a heat issue. None of my R series have had heat issues, and they all pretty much stayed on my WS or in my console all day every day in the Texas heat during the summer.
