The difference in h and c?

What is the difference on my radar detector when i put it on highway or city? I know they're meant for each other but how do they work differently?

I think city doesn't alert on X band which results in false alarms from automatic doors like those at Walmart.

Highway should alert on all bands.

It's been along time, but someone explained it to me once.

That's about right. I have H,A,C. I have it set to H all the time for range. I slow down for any beep though. Just a reflex. But with mine the range is short at Ciry mode

The lower bands will also pick up motion detector systems, that are now used a lot in bussinesses instead the magnetic strips on windows and magnets on the doors.

So if you set it up for the Laser detectors or Ka band, in the city, it will probably go off continously at night.

If you don't want to get caught, don't speed.

You can always Google the manufacturer of the unit; then go to their site and download a PDF version of the owners manual. Most large manufacturers have these on their site, along with installation guides, etc.

I speed 10-15 but I know my limits. Just pay attention and you'll be fine. Provided you go with a nice radar like an escort or valentine.

But I leave mine on H for the range. It goes off I just slow down even if I'm not speeding. Just a habit
