You are not missing anything. Valentine is useless in NJ as police use K band POP here.

I called Valentine and they said disabling K POP was the only solution. I told them that Jersey has K band POP so I would be exposed. They said yup, that,s right! So they do admit you are not 100% in areas that use K band POP like Jersey.

Time to buy a Bel Stir+ which has better sensitivity and filters out automotive K band noise but leaves full K band protection on. Not sure why Valentine can't do this. Maybe because it requires a hardware change and they are reluctant to do anything beyond software upgrades?

Also asked lead mechanic if a fuse could be pulled to disable traffic aids on M5. He said no. So it's Bel Stir Plus
