Custom Alert Tones
The first change includes 15 selectable alert tones for X, K, Ka, MRCD, MRCT, Gatso 3, Gatso 4, and Laser.
Personally I’m not a huge fan of the RC M’s default tones. The default K band beep was always louder and more attention grabbing than the Ka beep (K band was also a double beep while Ka was a single beep, the opposite of most radar detectors) so now we have the option to change the tones to something we find more suitable and better balanced.
I’m still experimenting with my preferred alert tones and it is taking some time to get used to brand new alert tones again, but I’m really grateful for the option to change things up to something I like better.
Laser Gun ID Announcements
When you get shot with laser, the RC M now has the ability to visually display and audibly speak which gun you were shot with.
Before it would simply say “Laser” on the display and beep. Now it can show you and tell you exactly which gun you were shot with, something that previously would only work if you ran the ALP separate from the RC M.
This is one of the main reasons that I have previously preferred to run the two standalone. Now you get one of the key features available when you run them paired together.
