Autolearn
 
It is my understanding that three passes are required to lockout a false K or X-band alert. Do the passes have to be consecutive? Do they have to be in the same direction? For example, if I get a false alert then later get the same one while traveling in the opposite direction, does this count as pass #2?

Escort has not released a lot of details on the specifics of AutoLearn for proprietary reasons, but from what I recall the number of passes is approximately 3, but may vary.

To the best of my knowledge they are not directional, but if you go past the spot a second time and the radar is not there, it's possible the first pass may be deleted (AutoUnlearn algorithims are even less known). I believe the passes are not time constrained (no time parameter between passes). Also, it is possible that signal strength may be part of the algorithm for learn/unlearn, but I do not know for sure.

I'll let others fill in any details they may know and maybe ER will chime in to add more nonproprietary info, and/or correct my recollection.

EDIT: I would be interested in knowing from ER if turning off AutoLearn also turns off AutoUnlearn?

There was a post by either ER or TBNTX that stated AutoUnLearn was always engaged regardless of the status of AutoLearn.

This makes sense (to me anyway) as should someone run Autolearn for a while, you would want the detector to monitor whether an alert disappears occasionally. Having as much K band unlocked/unblocked as possible is desirable. And if that means "unlearning" (whether Autolearn is enabled or disabled) happens, that's a good thing.

That was my best recollection too, but I searched for the post and could not find it to verify. It makes sense as you described.

Here's one time Larry mentioned unlearn happens with Autolearn off. I believe he's mentioned that more than once because this is the 1st link I just found by searching but I don't think it's the one I was remembering when I first mentioned unlearn.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for but could not readily find.

I wish there were a Sticky for each detector that gathered the operational parameters/specs where those details were not listed in the manuals such as the one above, operational temps, TSR delay time etc,
Would also like to see a Sticky for DT to advise new purchasers whether DT was yet modified (win & mac) to handle their new purchase, as this seems to be a very frequent inquiry after the user gives up on trying to get DT to work.

These are both great ideas. I haven't had much trouble with DT probably because I'm on a Windows machine and I tend not to buy products as soon as they come out but a lot of people seem to need to ask.

I especially like the idea of capturing operational (I'll call them tidbits) that aren't mentioned in the user's manual. But instead of by product, these could be grouped by feature - AutoLearn, Bluetooth, etc.
