Valentine One with new iPhone 4s
I thought I'd post my experience to see if anyone else noticed the same thing I did this AM.
I had the original iPhone 3G with ATT, and used it in my car without any problems. I bought a Valentine One a month ago, hardwired it, and was working fine until this morning. What changed this AM? I bought an iPhone 4s and switched to Verizon. I synced it with my car this AM for the first time. I started my normal drive, and noticed a couple blips on the detector, 1 bogey, one signal strength, where I never had them before. Didn't think much of it until I made a phone call and noticed a continuous beep every 4-5 seconds, with the arrow indicating a front signal. I assumed it was coming from the phone, which was sitting in the small console below the radio, so I picked it up while I was still on the phone, held it behind the radar, and the signal strength went to 4-5, with the arrow pointing to the rear. The arrows followed the phone as I moved it around.
I called Valentine One this AM, and the sales rep said he hasn't heard of this before, but transfers me to a tech, who said that Verizon uses the CDMA frequency which is a harmonic of an X band, and can falsely alert the detector. He recommended to switch to Advance Logic, as I was using the factory settings.
Has anyone else noticed this? Should I be concerned about missing a radar on this new mode?
