I’ll have to see how much truth there is to that, still being in Chicago. I split the city going down 90 twice a day; its a joy!If you try hitting it with K band I/O turning KV off makes very little if any difference! That was one of the first things we tried. It will pick up every single BSM for miles however!
@Brainstorm69 did a video with it off, it was a joke! He had to pull over and turn it back on! I figured I could get away with it in my area, WRONG! LMAO!I’ll have to see how much truth there is to that, still being in Chicago. I split the city going down 90 twice a day; its a joy!
I never stopped commuting, but now others are back on the road! Looks like I’ll give KV off a go for the hell of it
I’ve got all the BSM you want but little noise driving with a G2! What’s GPS?
The R7 and RL360C are not slouches. The RL360C is similar to the V1G2 with BSM rejection, the R7 with the latest firmware is very livable as well (I just wish it wasn't so adept at sniffing out door openers)We need more truth around here! Folks, the G2 ain’t perfect, but understand what’s going on for $500 is insane!
I welcome pointing out the negatives (some K I/O stuff) in an informative manner, which only helps improve the experience for everyone - American made firmware upgrades ! Let’s face it, Valentine Research has a kickass track record.
Enough of that, credit where credit is due! Thanks for the testing Rags!!!
And damn, the G2 out-sniffs the R7 again! How’s the G2 do that and filter so well?! The R7 is chatty
I can’t disagree, as it’s fair to say my commute has excessive noise. My drive will make RDs hearts literally stop for seconds… talking to you UnidenThe R7 and RL360C are not slouched. The RL360C is similar to the V1G2 with BSM rejection, the R7 with the latest firmware is very livable as well (I just wish it wasn't so adept at sniffing out door openers)
If I were facing a lot of selective K I/O K band, I would probably choose the R7 then the V1G2. The RL360C wouldn't even be an option in that case IMHO.
If VR fixes the reaction time issue on K band, it would be a no brainer. Same goes for the RL360C (it appears to have the best sensitivity on K band from what I see)
But, but, the G2 has very short K band C/O detection. Did you rig this test!? Maybe it wasn't my imagination that my G2 has done a good job against the K band threats I face? Glad I don't have to face @VariableWave or @Kennyc56 with K band. But in celebration of this testing and the update I'm gonna get faced!
Thanks for the info! I don’t think anyone’s really missed this general note mentioned by many, any chance they get lol.In testing a Group of Detectors (Mid and High Tier Priced/Performance), at this time we were only able to test Two V1G2s (.1018 and .1019), R7, and R3 in this class, in addition to Mid Tier units in another Thread. We ran @Kennyc56 unit in the official recording, as I was recording Kill Zone...www.rdforum.org
All, when @Kennyc56 and I did K band testing, and other bands, see this thread. The V1G2 is not near sighted.... it is the instant response it has against. Face me on this, if I was a LEO treating one as always running a Detector, hutum, lidar, you be 92% screwed. I am not testing you how, but R series, the original V1G1, and Whistler CR series, bests the V1G2 in seeing select K world on 4.1021 and 4.1023 that brought this up.
Post automatically merged:
Doing a Dec Gen II series vs Falcon HR, is night and day. I can clock a car and lock with one gun before the V1G2 even sees it. With K Verifer off, maybe the V1G2 will pull it out of it @ss that oh wait, did I see, beep, then off. This was on 4.1023.... soon to test with now released May 2021.
It just keeps getting better!I added additional tests to add R7 TSF On/Off along with V1G2 KV On/Off and V1G1 TMF On/Off.
From what I am reading either there is something going on with the 1.35 firmware for the R7 or I may have a low performing R7. One way or another, we will figure it outIt just keeps getting better!
Its interesting how some keep painting a story that just doesn’t line up with what I see in real-world, or testing results from others for that matter.
I know what I have for $500.00! It's incredible and I'm very close to ordering my next V1G2! I'm getting tired of moving it between 3 cars! The alerts I'm getting on 34.7 and 35.5 are mind bending at times, especially on off axis shots!I think that opens up to a new idea many folks don’t seem to talk about, but I think at this point is becoming undeniable!
And this comes from a technical armchair perspective (see my signature for the links) and from seeing enough real world data/testing.
That is… the V1G2 is grabbing all freq’s present in the threat spectrum (X, K, Ka) front and back in 4ms. It’s doing that 250 times a second, looking over the “Virtual Images”.
So, as @WildOne put it very recently, it’s less smoke and mirrors as the others and apparently looking at the waveform.
The G2 feeds K through the same two LNAs (yes two) before mixing as it does for Ka. It sees K stupidly far and fast, but like any RD out there… the info needs to be there to begin with when making an assessment on the incoming signal.
Fortunately the G2 has all that info coming in, it just takes time and refinement! I’m telling ya, people don’t know what they have for $500

I wish my 9500ix and 8500 S7 still worked, I would love to throw them in from time to time.Love this test to keep things in perspective.
Reminds me of my tests when I include one of my 3 9500ix into it.
No doubt a partial reason I was so blown away when upgrading to the Pro M, R3 and R7.
Hello RDF'ers! Today I spend the most part of the afternoon performing my first Ka testing. Here are the results, videos will need editing and uploading later. This is only one test. It is only the results of the equipment and detectors in my possession on this date. All comments are only my...www.rdforum.org
