@VariableWave and I do the same things during all of our "on the record" testing making sure the detectors are all mounted in the same spot and controlling every last detail that we possibly can! Then we almost always try running ghetto arrows or a combo of R1 and V1G2, Redline-O and V1G2 or any other combo that we can think of just to satisfy our curiosity, off the record of course! Not even once during any of our testing have we had an issue, not once! I ran my Redline-O/ V1G1 tag team for years and hundreds of thousands of miles as well and they killed it and saved my @ss from every type of dirty point blank I/O shot these NC State Troopers could throw at me! I never thought my R1/Redline-O ghetto arrow setups could be beaten but my V1G2 finally beat them because of how it kills off axis on 34.7 and 35.5! The R1 is still better against K band however and kills my V1G2 against K band I/O! It makes a great deal of difference which detectors you try this with however and you won't know until you test them for many hours! There's really no reason to do it anymore unless you're curious like me!Exactly.
We also try to use the same mount so the detectors are in the same position.
Being in their optimum position for detection isn’t as important as being the same position.
There’s too many environmental variables to account for that optimum doesn’t make a huge comparison impact.
Having it in an easy position to quickly change over detectors helps. The Uniden’s and Radenso Pro-M can share the same mount. The mag mount of the Escort’s are on the same level and right beside where the Uniden/Radenso’s are mounted.
You also want to test them as soon as you can right after each other. Detection ranges change day to day. Temperature, and humidity changes even throughout the day. Same sort of thing as why your car runs better in the cool evening vs the hit afternoon.
As noted above... the interference between 2 detectors are random. Some it can happen instantly.
2 Pro-M’s together will false constantly to each other. They’re functionally stealth detectors..... but I can do it on demand. Nothing in front of them but the windshield. I can go out and prove it right now.
My RC-M can cause other detectors to false to each other when I’m close to a car in front of me, or a flat object like a wall in a parking lot.
These are false that I can see. These, I’m not too worried about. I know why, and I can see it
It’s the ones that I don’t that I’m worried about.
It’s even more concerning when you run one detector that known to light up a Spector at a long distance .... then stick it in close proximity to another detector. Say a V1G1, or a Max360, Uniden's, ax3...
Think about it realistically. If a Spector can see it .... even 50 feet away..... what do you think the other detector is seeing 2 feet away?
That’s why we don’t test that way. It’s fun for shits and giggles, to run 2 detectors just to see how they reacts.... but for testing... never. The energy radiating out of the detectors is so random, you can’t predict it, or even know it’s happening if it’s silent.
Even when I test my R360C and my R-EX, never together. They’re 100% stealth, but you need to remove as many potential causes of interference as you realistically can, to get a good idea of how they’re performing
