to POP or not to POP, this is the question.

So, my 9500ix has the option for POP on or off. Default is off. What is the benefit of having POP on?
From what I have read POP is not very accurate and not often used, is this the case?

Thanks Guys. I am way North of West Palm. Actually up in the Daytona area. But I do get down that way from time to time,

IIRC, FL MPH guns are not POP enabled.

Leave it off as it will reduce your sweeps on 34.7 and 35.5. Pop is over scanning 33.8 and unless all you have for a threat in your area is 33.8 then leave it off.

Not to mention POP mode on M4 platform detectors seems to dramatically increase getting false alerts from Cobras and such.

If you had a V1 or MAX and lived in a POP-capable area, I might suggest trying it on for a bit to see if you can live with it, but otherwise, you're sacrificing your protection and alertness to far more dangerous threats for the extremely unlikely event that a police officer around your area is equipped with a POP gun and is using it in that mode.

Noted, and thanks, POP is off .. I didn't notice any difference but will take your (all of your) advice.
