Default The purpose of multiple detectors

I have recently returned to the forum after a long hiatus. In my travels I have noticed a lot of you all and other people I have met are now using multiple detectors. I am wondering why?
thanks, Good to be back.

Certain setups can compliment each other - however, the biggest thing to be weary of in using such multiple-detector setups is to insure that one does not interfere with the other.

There's really no good way to be able to tell if such interference is occurring, and the GOL page here well describes why:

Radar Detector Tests and Reviews by Guys of LIDAR

Truthfully, most who decide to use such dual-detector setups typically go with a remote-mounted detector, such as the old Escort SR-series or the current 9500ci/STi-R, and pair it with an in-cabin V1, or, alternatively, select the Bel STi-Driver to compliment a V1 as an in-cabin, dual, setup.

You can easily see where the performance/features of these detectors "mesh" with one another, and serve as good compliments.

With the former forward-of-firewall and in-cabin separation, most agree that any potential interference *should* be minimal.

With the latter, although it would make sense that the V1 would be shielded from any potential effects from the nearby STi-Driver, no-one is really sure of the converse of that...whether or not the STi-Driver will somehow be affected by the V1.

I run a 9500ci remote detector paired with the V1 on the Vette. I like the greater range and sensitivity of the ci, but I need the arrows and bogey counter of the V1. Additionally the V1 serves to ensure I don't miss a real alert that the 9500ci may have locked out as a false alert.

Valentine V1 (pop off, x band off, volume off) It is a radar locator now not a detector.

Why not just isolate them with mu-metal or Ultraperm 80?

^ Please explain further - I'm not an engineer!

As a matter of fact, as I often like to bring up, I took "Physics for Poets," back in my undergrad days!
