Since the switch from the Valentine, have you noticed a reduction in false positives?

I haven't had it that long. It takes I think three exposures in a particular spot for it to decide that a boogie is a false positive. I am just glad at this point that it is detecting the same targets that the Valentine did. I have had radar detectors in my cars since the original Fuzzbuster. This 9500i tells you your speed when the detector first goes off too. Plus it talks to you telling you what band it is detecting and that it has a GPS lock. Like R2-D2 hangin on my windshield.
