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 Band segmented (which I am happy with) but am not currently running K segmented.

According to the manual K narrow 1 is 24.050-24.110 GHz, K narrow 2 is 24.110-24.175 GHz, K narrow 3 is 24.175-24.250 GHz, and K narrow 4 is 23.950-24.050

Any suggestions based on my geographic location and acumen locating Hondas?

Unfortunately in your area (especially PA), you're likely to encounter K band threats anywhere in the 24.050-24.250 GHz range. Unless Escort adds something like Uniden's K Block (a risky notch filter around 24.200), there is not much you will be able to do about K band falses to Hondas. The MaxCi is much better at filtering K band, but is significantly more expensive than the iX Ci.

Is there any one frequency Honda is using on their cars? Or an assortment of frequencies. Expert mode keeping an eye open for the "Honda Frequency" may be a poor man's solution. I am getting blisters hitting the mute button.

Honda CRV's are usually between 24.195 and 24.205. Some of the newest hondas/acura/GMC are sitting near 24.160. Police Kband tend to be centered around 24.125 or 24.150, but they can drift anywhere in the Kband range. This is the importance of good filtering, some detectors are good at filtering the falses, some not as much.

Not a big difference between 24.160 car sensor and 24.150 police

The Escort K band segment ranges are practically useless in the USA with those range of frequency options. The only one you could get rid of is the really low one (4 as you have listed) but there's not many falses down there anyway.

I don't understand their thought process in making the segment ranges that way, it's not practical because they don't help with the frequencies that are either problem frequencies or frequencies that we actually need to worry about.

4 would be the highest K frequencies, no? 1 the lowest?

KN4 is the lowest frequencies according to the list, it would have made sense that it was the highest but not the way listed in chart in post #1. Escort logic ???

Look, I want to like Escort, I ran them for years and loved it then. Now, they have soooooo many things that need addressing. They have obviously misspelled words and language in their marketing material, ignore and deny problems and avoid conversations that point out issues. Their website is highly censored. Their detectors are mostly redone old platforms with nothing really new. The LIVE App is horrible and unstable after 8+ years with no innovation... the list goes on and on...
