Has anyone disabled X band on radar detector. I have a new V1 and seem to get way to many X band warnings, even on "L" logic mode. It seems that the local and city police use K and the State troopers use Ka or Laser.

Is anyone aware of any police still using X band?

Some still do, especially if you go through a small town. There is a way to do it on the V1, not sure how though. Go to the website and search around. I get X falses, but what makes the V1 perfect are the counter and arrows, I know where to expect them and can tell if there is more than normal and when I pass the source.

I just about got nailed in a small town just outside of KC on I70 because I was used to ignoring X band. I was lucky that there was a joint effort between local cops and the Highway Patrol, and I hit the brakes when the Ka hit.

I keep my V1 in small L (normal logic) mode because I like to know about everything around me. I become suspicious is there is a single X source in the middle of nowhere.
