Agreed.
Just like the vaccine will first be distributed to the most 'at risk' people, so too should Theia be distributed to anyone who lives/drives in PA first.
Theia should be 'The Official RD of Pennsylvania'.
But this is a VR thread, so I digress....
95% effective?

I'm going back to custom ka sweeps tomorrow. I had it removed for a bit after the update to track is signals but the falsing this afternoon was a lot.

I went back to CFs for the same reason - falses around the 34.4-34.5 area.

That's why I went to them, although the last few drives I used a profile without them to see if it is any different than it was. Sounds like I should just go back to them.

Mine was acting up a lot when I first updated, but seems to calmed down. I still get the random 9 k band alerts out of no where every now and than.

Its still usable for me and I have no intentions of dusting my escort Max 360 for duty. I'll wait on the fix from valentine.

I’ll add to the chorus here. Did a bit of driving for the first time after the update, and it seems like k-verifier is turned off at the hardware level no matter what your settings are. Weird that this firmware got released with such an obvious flaw. Looking forward to the fix soon.

I had my first off-axis Ka alert since 4.1021, it was from a cop base on a side road and arrow transition was perfect. Right on the mark.
I've had several Ka alerts since 4.1021 and they've got the ramp and everything else to do with Ka band as close to perfect as I've ever seen with any detector I've ever run with or tested! Here's to hoping it stays this way after they "fix" the next firmware update!

Did the update - had a run in with a Sheriff (moving) using Ka. Ramp up was great - went full scale about 1 mile or so before he got to me. Plus as he was coming around a bend got the first Ka signal at 1 bar. Been impressed by the range on Ka over my old Gen1. Still playing with the settings but been happy so far.

Valentine’s Black Friday deal:
Free Pacifica detector to compete with unidens Honda detector .
up to 0.2 miles away with multiple bogeys!.

Seriously why can’t we revert firmware already...
I understand to some of you this isn’t a big deal but when you drive certain speeds in K country this gets torturing and tiring.

in typical Valentine fashion it’s been two weeks since this update and nothing has happened. November has a few days left. I’ll wait and see.

I have had several 34.7 encounters over the last two days, and the arrow transition has been smooth, and I have experienced no ghosting on Ka. My V1G2 is still awesome against Ka.

I have also had several real police K-band encounters in my city, and I have experienced no K-band ghosting against real police K-band. I did try doing what @Freebird in the other BSM ghosting thread suggested, but it didn’t help, but it was definitely worth a try, and I appreciated the suggestion (I am an I phone and V1 Driver user).

I am primarily still noticing the high bogey counts (All-Bogeys mode with K-verifier on) on BSM encounters against Honda and Acura BSMs at both 24.160 and 24.200 +/- but no so much against the other BSM offenders.

I am fine with waiting for a fix on a future firmware update ( I don’t really have a choice...lol), and it isn’t a huge issue for me as my Gen2 is still a beast, but the BSM filtering under 4.1021 doesn’t seem as good (in my experience) as prior firmware versions since I updated.

@DocTJ , I have also noticed I am picking up BSM offenders with my V1G2 further away compared to prior firmware versions similar to my R3.

I know PA is serious K-band country. I face a lot of K band, but most of what I encounter is C/O. I definitely agree it would be nice to have the option to revert to a prior firmware version similar to Uniden. Maybe that will be an option in the future.

It would also be great if VR would improve K-band reactivity too in the future while keeping BSM false alarms to a minimum. If VR could dial in K-band reactivity with effective BSM filtering like they have Ka, that would be a great combo.

;)

I'm really hoping to see another release of firmware before the end of this month, but I wonder if they want to maintain the "month" naming of firmware. They've already released November 2020. Maybe in the first part of December 2020 they will release another firmware that tweaks some other things as well as restoring the previous level of BSM rejection that was present in v4.1019.

I'm of the opinion that some stuff would need to be reworked to allow downgrading. The app and the servers don't seem to be set up for that currently. (From a customer's perspective that is)

I think if you were to compare the two in a test against 1 each of known BSM "alerters", the Gen1 would be noisier than you remember. :)

Maybe, but going from a unit that made me ? If it was broken to a unit that alerts to all the things my old one did makes me not feel all butterflies in the tummy [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] I just hope they can send out an update soon to quiet it down..
