Any detector you buy will give you K band falses, even if you forked out a couple of grand for the Stinger VIP, it is a given around automatic door openers and industrial areas. The ability to only monitor 23.950 - 24.110 will reduce falsing, but you will sill get them. So instead of 10 falses in an hour, you may get only 5, but they will still happen. K band from blind spot mirrors is currently not a big issue in NZ, but is another source of K band, but is filtered out well by some of the newer detectors.my STI XR is getting a bit long in the tooth, and switching K band on causes lots of false detection's form door openers around town, so thats why i switched it off, but then got napped by a mobile cameras.... I dont think it has band segmentation, but will have another look at the programming tonight. I had a V1 until someone kindly broke my window and stole it, but again it was an older one with false Kband detection's so switched that off. I didnt realise that the vans had a different freq from the fixed poles, so may look at the EX as you suggested....
With the V1 you can customise it (if you have the bluetooth connection). Then you can switch between Ka only, and Ka and K in under 3 seconds, by just pressing and holding the power knob - 1 finger. Most other detectors would take you at least a minute and at least two hands. What I am getting to is the ability to do it while driving around. If you are after a newish V1, get in touch with @chakeubeam or @rahul1023.
