Default Additional Lockup Details

Additional Info on Lockup Symptoms.

I just got another lockup using 1.3 (no EL; X band Off; TRS Off; Highway Mode). There was a brief indistinguishable alert before the lockup (which is why I looked up and noticed it) but no additional sound was heard as the screen became locked. I have now installed 1.5 and will further test it, however,I don't recall any changes to the lockup issue from 1.3 to 1.5 (as opposed to other items being addressed). I also observed the following this time (with 1.3):

1. The speed display was still working properly, but no bars and no band was showing, with a "1" source detection.
2. As I approached 2 laser speed cameras (with the lockup still on the display) the RD alerted to each by GPS voice alert and the screen displayed the speed cameras, counting down their distance on the display. After the RD finished the GPS voice alerts it returned to its locked band display until I got home and shut it down. Whether or not it could have also alerted to a band alert (K or Ka) in this locked display condition I cannot say as I did not have a radar source at home. Repowering it cleared the band-locked display.

EDIT: I think the Laser Band Alert may have also gone off too, but I cannot recall for sure as the GPS Voice Alert was sounding and "stepping on it". Question becomes, is it only the radar side with an issue (as opposed to GPS and/or laser) or might it be just a display issue? I have now located a fixed Ka speed camera and should it lock up again I will drive by it to see if the radar Band warning is still working and just not displaying. If I had a K or Ka radar gun at home I could have found the answer this time as all other nearby K signals are locked out in its memory and could not be used for a test. Also, next time I will turn back into the laser speed camera to make a positive determination of whether the laser band alert might also work while the display's warning side is locked. Lockups are few and far between so if anyone gets one and they can observe these parameters and provide feedback, maybe we can pinpoint the issue as I don't think its that simple to recreate in a lab setting.
