    Atlanta construction this week

    I started the morning in Montgomery and take I-85 north up close to the SC state line. I got a taste of what the GHP was up to, but I lost more time on construction in the northeast section of ATL then an accident outside ATL. I will leave Greenville Tuesday morning on my way to Birmingham...

    R360c plug issue with G05

    Here is an old thread from Bimmerpost: https://g05.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1557458&highlight=radar+detector where some of them defaced the Escort power plug to work with their G05. I have not worried about that particular power issue because my V1 was hardwired and I had options...

    BSM spike after reinstall 1.3 on R360c?

    During my initial use of the R360c (i.e. 2 weeks ago), I thought it did very well in terms of rejecting BSMs. However, I have noticed a significant difference since reinstalling 1.3. The R360c came with 1.3, but I read a thread where a reinstall might improve some minor issue that I no longer...

    EL not play nice with CarPlay?

    I found assorted claims here and there, but as best I can tell EL does not show up when one uses CarPlay in a vehicle, right? If that is the case, is it still true one can run EL in the background and Waze in the foreground and get audible alerts from both through one’s car speakers? This is...

    RL360c BT issues

    I have seen such threads with other Escort detectors, but here is my story. I bought direct from Escort and I do not remember getting EL to show the R360c as BT connected. I may remember seeing my iPhone 11 Pro BT settings showing a connection, but all I get from EL is “connecting” and most...

    How disable V1 Connection LE?

    My dealer did a custom install of my V1G1 early 2019 that included the V1 Connection LE. Now, that BT dongle is conflicting with the built-in BT feature of the V1G2. For example, it is a problem when trying to update the firmware or when using V1 Driver. The shop cannot remove the dongle prior...

    R360C - no bluetooth pairing with iP11 Pro

    I just received the R360c this morning. I wanted to use EL to customize my settings. However, I could not get a BT connection to work with my iP11 Pro . See the image below. I know there are many other threads here about other Escort devices, but did not see one specific to the R360c. I saw one...

    BMW alerts to red light and mobile cameras

    I would like to hear how this community would evaluate this new feature available on BMWs like my G05. This is of interest to me because I do not have such a database with my V1 G2/V1 Driver while there either is no warning from my R7 or I rarely find such around OKC. I cannot link to the...

    Rookie queries on BV DR900S-2CH

    Having just returned from a funeral in DC with roughly 10 days to prepare for three weeks of driving, I have only scanned the BV manual. The questions that follow come from my reading or misreading of the manual. 1. When I connect to the BV 'wifi' on my iPhone X, does that not cut me off of the...

    Would a RD do this to a G05?

    On Monday, I will be taking my G05 back to the dealer for the third time this month. They have been able to resolve an error message that did not go away when he did a major software upgrade early this month. The error message says “Emergency Call System Malfunction” and is described in this...

    Will BM V1 clip fit on BM BBV-2030 for BM 900?

    Here is one of two like posts on Bimmerpost that make me think I need this BM if I can still have a way to clip my V1 to the BBV-2030. Is there a national chain in OKC that carries anything like this? If I ship overnight with early delivery from BM they will charge $100 shipping on top of $139...

    BMW Advanced Care Eye 2.0

    I know this unit is overpriced (I get discount via BMWCCA), but I am drawn to it for a variety of reasons. However, I would like to hear criticism of the unit not necessary what would work better in my G05. My wife is very worried about security especially with driving 4K miles over 3+ weeks...

    Radenso's M's sold out?

    My new G05 is causing constant laser falses with my V1. Since I do not want 'jammers' (illegal here in any event), I wondered if R's M might be as good as the V1 for scatter (rather than a direct hit aimed at me). I thought about giving one a try, but apparently none are available. Am I missing...

    Constant Laser falses with G05

    My BMW dealer's electrical specialists did a hardwire install this morning of my V1 in my G05. Before verifying all was working correctly, the installer told me that I was getting constant laser falses. He attributed this to the parking assistant package. I know I can disable laser in the V1...

    Waze in G05 charging cradle

    I picked up my new G05 last week. I have not been able to drive very much due to recovery stages related to fusion foot surgery. I can select CarPlay if I like, but I prefer iDrive 7 which is limited when running CarPlay. When I put my iPhone X in the charging cradle, I can have Waze as active...

    Test your RD at a gas station frequented by police

    I see various homemade versions of how to test RDs, but thought to mention that almost every time I get gas at a Valero station near the turnpike that at least one local leo is there with Ka radar turned on. I am sure that this kind of thing would be common in other metros and it is a discreet...

    From Tulsa to Jay, OK

    Having lost a beloved Lahsa Apso last week, my wife and I will be going from OKC past Jay, OK to visit a reputable breeder. I know the I-44 turnpike pretty well, but not 412 and 59. Anything in particular to be aware of during this run on those roads?

    Early morning read I/O on Kilpatrick Turnpike

    I am sure others have encountered rear I/O in OKC, but I rarely get hit with radar during my 5:30 am commute on Kilpatrick Turnpike. However, not only did I get a front Ka I/O yesterday morning, this morning the I/O was from the rear (exit ramp NW Expressway). I was the only one going over PSL...

    V1 Driver conflict with streaming music?

    During January, I did 3K miles on the open road and had no problems with streaming Apple Music from my iP7. However, yesterday I did 500 miles and more often than not Apple Music stopped playing when V1 Driver reconnected in the background. This kind of thing is not a problem for my daily...
