Default Switching off K-Band

I have an Escort Max ll that I will be mounting in a new Mercedes C63s convertible via hardwire to the fusebox. Living in South Florida, I am wondering if I could turn off the K band detection and still have adequate protection. For the past 4 years of use, I only recall having "real" alerts in Ka band and occasionally Laser. My goal is to eliminate the false beeps from electric doors, blind spot detecting systems any other annoying signals that trigger my detector. Seeing that I am not a Radar detector fanatic, I will not be hooked up to any smartphone apps to further enhance protection. Thank you for any input.

I would do some research on line and see what systems are used in Florida. Then check in your local area and see whats out there. With any luck you might be able to slide by. I have heard Florida is mostly KA and Laser. Also understand that a detector alone WILL NOT protect you from laser. You will need laser shifters for that.
