    X-Band Radar in Texas?

    I'm considering disabling the X-Band on my Valentine One since 90% of false alarms are X-Band...and I don't think I've ever encountered a true X-Band signal in 10,000 miles with the V1. Anyone, especially in the Dallas or Austin areas, regularly come across cops who are still using X guns?

    Some is still used...

    I've not been hit with x-band in many years and I do have it disabled on my V1's. I do know a few of the small towns north of I30/I20 just west of FTW use x-band still (Lakeside near Axle is one of 'em). I've heard rumor that somewhere around Lewisville some friends claim they have been hit with X-band, but I have no way of knowing if this true or just a bad read of the detector by these folks (I don't trust that they truly understand what the V1 is communicating to them).

    Thanks Lincoln. I\'m tired of the same falses...

    It's more to reduce passenger annoyance, and Highland Park Village near my office always sets off 7+ X-Band signals. I try to turn it off when I have clients in the car, but I've forgotten to turn it back on a couple of times and have almost gotten nailed.
