Default Just upgraded from max 360 and have a question

Hi,

I had my max 360 (no c) for 5.5 years and just upgraded to the redline 360c. I got it today and I'm heading on a road trip this afternoon from the NYC area to the MA/VA/DC area, so I'm excited to test it out.

I have a question though about the band settings. On my old max 360, I used to run with Ka, K, and X on; TSR off; and I can't remember what I did with pop, but I think I kept it on.

The redline now offers much more precise band segmentation and I'm not sure what to choose. I followed the suggestions of VortexRadar and turned off pop, ka, and k, so that I can run the specific ka and k narrow bands. Based on VortexRadar, I turned on k narrow 1/2/3/4 and ka narrow 2/4/5/6/8.

I don't doubt his expertise at all, but I'd like to understand why it's suggested to run with pop off, and to turn off ka/k in favor of those segmentations. The explanation in VortexRadars setup video was that turning on pop and full ka/k will negatively impact performance, but I'm curious as to why?

I'd rather have a few extra falses if it means I'm better protected. For reference, I live in NYC, work in Westchester, and frequently travel to the surrounding states.

Thanks!

The radar detector was awesome! Very quiet on k, a little order on x, but I also did drive through Jersey, and ka was also quiet. Multi was loud but as I'm based in NYC, I want it turned on.

Well worth the purchase. I did miss the arrows on x band through

I am down near Atlantic City I had set up my RL360c similar to Vortex video prior to the release of the video. Your performance is impacted by the scanning time. In other words the more spectrum scanned the longer it takes. There is no POP in our area and the Ka bands recommended cover you for the NJSTP, the factory settings would leave you vulnerable. Ka segment 10 should be turned off it is not used by any known agency in the area but is used by vehicles that have radar cruise control and will give you false alerts.

Basically, the idea is to not make the detector work at looking for things that don't exist or matter it should concentrate on looking for known bogies.

Good Luck & Enjoy!

That makes sense. I also realized that MA uses multi radar which is why it was going off a lot.

I feel much better about the detector now with the settings I've configured based on recommendations
