We just got a VR update a few days ago. Next one probably won't be until January.

That was the Nov update, right? Just checking to make sure I have the most recent one.

Advanced Logic just reduces the number of times a user will experience the issue, but it can still be present using Advanced Logic.

Me, personally, I don't use Advanced Logic anywhere for good reason.

Yes, advanced logic mode makes it quiet (or did as I was on an older firmware) but I also had some pretty super short alerts using it. I don't think it's a viable mode to use for K threats unless you're in a pretty flat terrain without trees or buildings around or you just don't have any K threats in your driving radius. Could just have been my unit was weak on that mode though.

28 days ago.....just a bit more than 'a few'.

I am hoping the release comes out soon! If it does not come out by at least the middle of next week I doubt we will see it before the new year due to the Holidays and companies shutting down and/or having time off.

The update might be ready but they might not want to release it so close to a Holiday in case there are issues that need to be addressed quickly as they might not have staff to take care of it with the Holidays as well.

They released firmware with an issue once, I can see them wanting to take their time to make sure it does not happen again.

Exiting the freeway yesterday and received a Ka hit with multiple bogeys (5) then a few seconds later a “J” displayed. That’s due to a cheap RD in a nearby car correct?

Couldn’t tell you. Running naked (V1 not me).

First time seeing it though. If it happens again I’ll launch V1 Driver and keep an eye out for the frequency.

Happened to me near St. Louis on 33.8 after driving through IA who use 33.8. Scared the bejeesus out of me and I dropped anchor......then the G2 was like........"Oh, My bad! Just ignore that." LOL.

Next software update soon, probably. The next hardware update? I've been hinted the screen, but don't have any other information on it's design.

🤣 Same thing here too. Was scared looking for the LEO and several seconds I got the “J” notification. Wanted to slap the V1 but damn she’s so beautiful and couldn’t do it.

I am also getting 33.8 false alerts at times. I know it's not a LEO because 33.8 is not used in my area. Sometimes it gets J'ed out but most of the it doesn't.

Cobra detectors do this regularly. Those are typically found around 33.8. There are now some J-out alerts in 34.7 and 35.5 too.
I've been seeing some semis broadcasting 35.7xx more lately.

A reliable fix will take 5 separate steps:

First, they have to identify/diagnose the problem(s).
Second, they have to postulate a fix(es).
Third, they have to write the code to fix the postulated problem(s).
Fourth, they have to test the new code. (This takes time and usually leads to tweaking the code based upon results of testing and a repeat of this step. Often, more than once).
Fifth, they have to verify that they have not created any new problems. (Releasing a fix after an upgrade went south, will make Mike V really take his time with this step)

So, IMHO, ..........5 more minutes. :)
