    Unmuting at 6 lights not working?

    How do you know it was 34.7 ? Basic programming won't mute Ka. Does K-band normally unmute at 30 seconds ? perhaps this Cheat Sheet is easier to understand you might consider starting over with a reset

    Not this guy

    cool story Flipping open a wallet with a fake badge isn't impersonating a COP. Fraud, perhaps; impersonation, no. Following through, and acting like a COP with some display of authority, is an entirely different matter.

    Favorite Radar Detector 'Beep'

    My fav would be the V-1's Dee-DEET when alerting to another signal; especially when it reveals a COP hiding in the shadow of a routine(known) false.

    band 6 save on segmented RL

    Any Radar Detector has NO STANDING in ANY Court. You may actually hear laughter coming from the prosecution table; now that you have compromised your innocence by admitting to the Judge you use a detector, in a failed effort to out geek the process In order to gain "standing", a detector...

    Hello From Oregon

    Welcome to the Forum I lived in Oregon for 10 years, until this spring. Portland has Red Light and Speed cameras, but OSP uses motorcycle deployed LIDAR on any of the interstates during rush-hour. Milwaukie has a rather infamous Photo Van; along with somewhat aggressive enforcement along...

    Considering a new radar detector. which one for my driving?

    Both Escort and VR offer a generous 30-day return policy; consider taking advantage of it. Tell Dad you are leaning towards the Redline yet would consider the less expensive V-1; but you'd like to try it first. I'd be willing to bet he'll like the idea of the arrows and the ability to...

    Concerned About Running Your Laser Jammer in Texas?

    The idea that jamming LIDAR(or radar) would only fall under the jurisdiction of DMV, DOT, etc. rather misses the point. As an abstract example; firing a handgun at another moving vehicle would result in additional charges not related to DMV statutes. But to the point, in this case Texas...

    K Band, the bane of my existence

    I don't have one so I don't know, but doesn't the venerable STiR-Plus provide a 'quiet ride' ? "The STiR's GPS powered technology provides permanent relief from false alarms including automatic door openers, motion sensors and other radar-based sensors." or is that just marketing hype ...
