for those of you running a radar detector, have you noticed over the past several weeks that you've been getting a lot of false "Ka" signals on your detector...?
i've noticed this a lot recently and all over the place, too
is something up.....???

for a while my Escort Passport 8500 kept throwing off the LASER band every time i get on the gas, so i got fed up with it and turned the LSR band off, but i haven't noticed any Ka bands from the usual

Maybe your radar detectors aren't up to date, go look for a new upgrade.

As for me, I'm using the Valentine 1 and keeping it on Logic. Not picking up any false signals, works fine especially on the freeway/highway.

Try the passport 9500i, it lets you block out signals in certain areas so it doesnt go off everytime you pass albertsons, firedept, ect.

hmmmm..... maybe it's time for a new one..?
(btw - i'm running a passport 7500, about 3+ yrs old)
The Escort 7500 from the year 2000 compared to the Valentine One from the same year. The 7500 lost by 1.1-2.2 miles on all radar bands to the Valentine One. The Escort 7500 sucked when it first came out and it is even suckier now. Since then, Escort came out with the original 8500, the 8500 X50, and now the 9500i.






Get a Valentine One because it is better than the rest!!
