Re: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) sets off Radar Detectors

Just switched from my trusty V1 to an Escort 8500. ZERO problems from BSM and ACC. V1, it's time to get with the program! Your suggestion to disable POP ain't doin' the trick.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) sets off Radar Detectors

Yesterday, a newer corvette was coming up on my left on a 4 lane freeway. I noticed that as the car got near my blind spot, it would then slow and not pass. The driver did this at least 3 times. At first I thought the driver was admiring my WK2 (I've had that happen quite often), but when I exited the freeway a few miles later, the same car pulled in a parking lot near me. The driver got out and asked if I had some kind of radar jammer. I said no and he couldn't figure out why his V1 was going off near my WK2. I did tell him my GC has ACC and BSM and the BSM does have sensors on the left and right sides. The driver figured that the sensors were causing his V1 to give a false radar warning. He said he'll have to now keep an eye out for WK2's when he gets a warning.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) sets off Radar Detectors

Radar Detectors are illegal here in Ontario, and possibly in all of Canada, so I don't know if the two conflict.

All I know is given a choice now, I would take the ACC (and FCW) and BSM - both great options.

Radar detectors are not illegal in all of Canada. You can legally use a detector in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Thanks, wasn't sure.
Most of my driving is in Ontario and Quebec, which is why I haven't purchased one.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) sets off Radar Detectors

Hmmmm....I was considering pulling the trigger on a Valentine 1, along with the micro-invisicord, but I have the ACC and BSM.

Seems kind of pointless to spend that much money to deactivate its primary differentiation (rear radar detection). Granted, it just the K band.

Maybe some existing V1 users with ACC and BSM can convince me it's still worthwhile.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) sets off Radar Detectors

I dont have ACC or BSM and specifically requested not to for the reason of owning a V1 for years. My V1 has saved my ass from plenty of tickets, 2 of which would have occurred in the first week of owning my WK2.

I do find that other vehicles ACC or BSM does set off my V1. If you are using ACC you probably wont need the V1 since you will be on cruise...unless u are setting your cruise well above speed limit. Generally if Im driving greater than 10 over on the freeway, I don't use cruise as I react faster when im actively engaged in driving.
