SOURCE: Early Warning EW-3400 Radar Detector Digital Compass Calibration??

I looked at another simuilar Detector and read on Digital Compass Calibration and through the process of elimination found that if I Press CITY for 3 sec.'s COMPASS CALIBRATION showed on the display. Then it says TURN YOUR VEHICLE SLOWLY 2 TIMES to CALIBRATE. Then press the CITY button to complete the calibration. Done. It worked my Early Warning EW-3400 Radar Detector's Compass is now Calibrated.
Thanks for asking.

Explain how it works works


As a radar detector, it receives signals from everywhere...Hospitals, automatic door openers, and microwaves and in most cases these are filtered to provide you a detection of a police speed enforcement radar. These particular detectors also detect laser light. In all cases, it is merely a receiver of a signal sent. This is why a number of people have positioned their defense of use of a radar detector as simply receiving a signal under the freedom of speech aspect of the Bill of rights. The actual function is a detection of a particular light wave and a triggering to a sound or light alert.

Are the lights suppose to light up as soon as you turn the detector on?


I can help you with your Whistler Radar Detector.

Yes, if your detector is working properly, it should beep on power up, and all the lights should briefly lightup.

I hope that helps.

What does VG2 mean


It is a radar detector detector. So if you are running a radar in a state where it is illegal, this technology can detect the presence of your radar detector and you can be pulled over and ticketed. This is done by detecting the local oscillators and other "RF leakage" from the radar detector.
Sometimes you may notice that when you are near another car with a radar detector, your radar detector may go off. There are situations where your own radar detector can detect leaking RF energy from another detector in a nearby car.

Service required


This message is generated only after a Bel or Escort radar detector has repeatedly encountered problems while trying to self-calibrate its radar detection circuitry. The Service Required message literally means that you must send in your RD for service since there is nothing that can be done to fix whatever the problem is short of sending it in for factory service. At least it will come back working like brand new!

I have a Solo Radar Detector and all of a sudden when you insert the batteries and turn it on, it goes through the motions of turning on, then when done, the solid red light just blinks. I don't have a...


Well first off in doing so removing the batterys before you powered it off its stuck in some kind of error mode. Try putting the batteries in, holding the power button down for a few seconds and see if the light stops blinking.
Second Idea if you have a local radio shack they have replacment power cords for radar detectors there about 10 dollars. I had to go buy one for mine. After powering it up with that Id say it should work fine.

I dont understand


That may be because he does not have his radar unit activated. Radar units work by sending out a microwave signal. It bounces off your car and back to the unit. It then calculates the whole distance over time thing and figures out your speed...it's more complicated than that, but I don't feel like giving a class...and I'm not a real genius anyway when it comes to physics and whatever other -ics are involved with the science of radar. Point is...radar units have a hold function..kinda like turning that microwave beam on and off...when the officer has the radar on "hold" there is no beam coming out..which means, there is nothing for your radar detector to detect. When he takes it off hold to clock your speed, the magic beam shoots out, bounces off your car, and returns to the unit..then tells the officer your speed...by the time your radar detector actually lets you know you're being clocked, Mr. Officer is already turning around to come pull you over. Hence the reason radar detectors are a waste of money...but then again, there are plenty of cops that ride around with the the sending out a signal all day and never actually put it on hold...if a cop is using the radar properly, the radar detector in your car will not help you...but, not everyone does what they are supposed to do, so therefore, it may save you from one or two tickets.
Now, the reason it doesn't alert you when the police are right in front of you is because either the police in front of you; A)do not have a radar, B)do not have their radar on, C)they have it on "hold" and are not transmitting a signal, or D)your radar detector is broken and you need to get it fixed or replaced.

Signals


When "X" lights up, this means that your RD is either detecting X band police radar or that it is detecting an X band microwave automatic door opener.

When "K" lights up, this means the same as above except that the radar signal is a K band radar signal.

When "Ka" lights up, then this means that your RD is detecting police Ka band radar since no automatic door openers operate on Ka band.

When "VG-2" lights up, this is supposed to mean that your RD is detecting a VG-2 radar detector detector (RDD). Police use RDDs such as the VG2 and the Spectre to indicate that a motorist is using a radar detector.
