I haven't seen anything about seg 1.That's some interesting settings, and I've seen them recommended before. But I thought that Id seen somewhere here that running band one around here was recommended as well for drifting guns. Has there been any reasonable decisions made on that idea?
It's actually.... (Sorry )Segmenting has two **potential** benefits, depending upon the hardware and software platform.
First, by segmenting, a detector will either:
a) still "scan" the segmented frequencies but "ignore" any alert; or
b) "skip" the segmented frequencies altogether.
"Ignoring" may reduce certain alerts.
"Skipping" may potentially increase scan rates. So you need to know how any particular detector skips or ignores. "Skipping" is a risk if you get it wrong.
Second, if the scan rate is high enough, "skipping" is of no benefit. But "ignoring" might, provided its not ignoring a real threat. Herein poses the risk.
If the RL360c actually "skips" rather than "ignores" blocked frequencies, then you might see an increased scan rate. But with the V1G2's super quick scan rate, there will be no practical benefit to the scan rate by "skipping".
Personally, I like the V1G2 scan rate, which is off the charts and reportedly able to scan all of the bands in about 0.01 second!!!
But either way, "ignoring" alerts from some frequencies, can reduce false alerts, but at the risk of "ignoring" a real threat if you are not both: (i) very careful; and totally and (ii) continuously up to date.
"I don't think newer digital detectors really benefit from dementation" that's what I'm trying to get to the bottom of. Can you elaborate why you feel that way?I don't think newer digital detectors really benefit from dementation. The exception is segmenting to eliminate false alerts. Buy I'd be careful with that.
I'm not trying to be rude, but your statement is factually wrong. As you work your way up levels you will see why. If you own an R series or a RL360c you can test this out from yourself as well with a radar gun by slowly turning on one segment a time to see how long the delay increases with each. With some units it is more noticeable than others. The M360c can be segmented, however they have designed that, as you say above, where it just acts to mute and has no performance benefit. The V1G2 is already lightning fast and needs no segmenting. There are new digital RD's on the market that do indeed benefit highly from being segmented.I don't think newer digital detectors really benefit from dementation. The exception is segmenting to eliminate false alerts. Buy I'd be careful with that.
t's actually.... (Sorry )
4ms - front AND back combined
Which is also 0.004sec
Or 250 scans front and back per second!
If segmenting Atlanta .... 1,2,4,5,6,8. Shoild do ya good. NORMALLY 24568 but Transporter found some Cobb Co transmitting on seg 1.As I live in the Atlanta area (Dragon eye as well) safely segmenting the RL360c would only omit a couple of frequencies, if I'm correct. Would it really make that big of a difference to segment it?
I'm here for you, and all the good people of the forum!Thank you for providing that! (As an advanced user, you have access to things the rest of us don't).
Your information has only strengthened my point - that the V1G2 scan rate is so fast that lockouts (even if they effectively increased the scan rate) would not make any meaningful difference. Especially when you consider that the average human reaction time is around 0.25 seconds. In that time, the V1G2 has already made about 60 full scans!
