I recently disabled X band detection on my V1 and love not having to mute it every mile. I've only seen police in Metro Atlanta using K, Ka, and laser--no X band. Do any of you know for a fact that X band is in use?
I have no experience with Georgia, but in California, CHP motorcycle cops and our local police cars use K band, and on a trip to Oregon a County Sheriff also used K band. Definitely better safe than sorry.
Thanks guys and keep the experiences coming. If had my V1 for two years and never have seen a cop using X band. The past couple months with X band off have been great. Plaz, I'm with ya--boy who cried wolf syndrome.
Right now I have the detector set to logic mode due to all the friggin' photocell doors around town. I still get a lot of K band falsing. The logic seemingly sends the more critical hits through without delay.
I'll continue to run this way until I take a long trip. I feel that in smaller towns/less populated areas, X band might be standard fare.
BTW, anyone know when a new Valentine model might be released? Surely some new technology is ready and can't be fit in the current shell.
