    BlackVue DR900X-2CH battery duration

    I have a BlackVue DR900X-2CH w/ CM100LTE. An installer used the BlackVue supplied power cable to get power directly from the car's battery. I normally only drive this car only on weekends and ideally would like the DR900X-2CH w/ CM100LTE to continue working in parking mode for 5-6 days...

    BlackVue DR900X-2CH w/ CM100LTE & AT&T sim

    I recently purchased a BlackVue DR900X-2CH w/ CM100LTE installed by a local shop. I ordered an AT&T SIM card for the CM100LTE. Every time the DR900X-2CH reboots I get a verbal error message "please activate your sim card." I called AT&T tech support and they say the card is activated. They...

    This morning I spied this Kia Forte on the New Jersey Turnpike near Newark Airport. Note the sensors/cameras on the rear trunk lid. They looked a lot like the license plate reading cameras found on some police cars. Any idea what these actually are and what agency is now using unmarked Kia...

    iX Ci Platform false K band positives

    I live in NJ and primarily drive in the New Jersey / New York / PA areas receiving quite a few K band false positives on my Escort iX Ci Platform system. To the point I feel I am far more proficient at detecting newer Hondas than I am detecting LEOs deploying K band. I am currently running Ka...

    My Escort iX Ci Platform has recently been displaying "Rep S1" about once per trip. Recently the car was taken apart to have a full wrap done (in chrome). I cannot find that code in the manual. Radar detection appears to be working. Not sure about laser shifting. No other error...

    I have an Escort iX Ci Platform system with ShifterMax 2 shifters. I’ve noticed upon exiting toll booths on the New Jersey Garden State Parkway I sometimes get laser warnings but with no LEO apparently present. Is NJ installing laser into some toll stations? Is it possible these are temporary...
