Yeah I find Big L mode to be giving me much lower range compared to AutoLoK on the MaxCam. The thing is, IMO the raw BSM filtering between these two detectors is about the same, both really good. The striking difference for me is that the MaxCam alerts to speed signs almost twice as far away in Auto compared to big-L. In A mode it’s a bit of a toss up. Sometimes the V1G2 alerts from the distance I expect and other times it seems to still suppress a speed sign for a long time and then it pops up at 3 bars and way too close.Welcome to the K Band bitch club!
I've been bringing this shortcoming to light for months now. The G2 K band audible alerts are just shy of abysmal on many of my K Band encounters. It's the nature of the beast with BSM. No current detector can reliably filter out BSM's and be as good audibly on K band as they are on Ka band. Get used to it. When Theia comes to the marketplace next century we can finally get past this K Band shortcoming.
When I tried K Verifier off it was more normal but it falsed a lot to both traffic flow sensors and BSM systems. Not sure what I would do in a K band risky area and the V1G2. There doesn’t seem to be a happy medium other than K Verifier + A and hope it never suppresses a real K threat.
