If you are using Auto sensitivity, that is certainly limiting K band. The first encounter first alerted at 23 mph. With Auto mode's speed sensitivity active it will greatly limit sensitivity. That first encounter was also when going over-the-hill which limits detection.
Well the good news is I sent it in for repair, I just got it back today and the work order said the antenna module was replaced.... Yay!

So I plug it in and comes up with a big shiny Check FR <sigh>, but I thought lets see....I take it out for a drive, well now it doesn't detect anything. I can't even get a door sensor or speed sign to light it up... guess it's going back again. This $40 in shipping now times 2 is expensive. Is there a way I can fix Check FR myself?
