I have an older 360degree laser SST Superwideband Uniden Radar Dectector. It has 360degree laser detection, VG2 Undetectable, 4 band radar detection, road hazard. I sure hope someone can help me. I don't remember just exactly how to use it.

Ku is a band of radar used in some places by law enforcement. It is not used everywhere and can be a pain if it goes off for no reason. I recommend consulting your manual and turning the Ku band off if it is not used in the area in which you live. This will enable your detector to become more reliable for when you are being "zapped" by law enforcement
Pop is a way of using radar where the officer turns his radar on and off quickly. As a car approaches, they will turn the radar on long enough to get a speed reading, then immediately turn it back off to avoid detection by civilian radar devices. Some of the newer models of radar detectors have a feature which detects pop radar.
Every electronic device emits a frequency. Vg2 is what law enforcement use in states where radar detectors are illegal to identify whether a car is using a radar detector. The newer version of vg2 is called spectre and accomplishes the same thing. Some radar detectors can pick up on vg2 and spectre so the owner can turn the detector off before they are detected by law enforcement.
LED Display gives you your display visual alerts, signal strength, and operation mode. Here is an attached link for the manual.....http://www.uniden.com/pdf/LRD6399SWSom.pdf But to answer your question here is what the difference between the green light and the red light are: 1. X-Band Signal Indicator—A green LED lights and blinks to indicate the presence of an X-band radar signal. The blink rate increases as the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is also heard. 2. K-Band Indicator— An amber (orange) LED lights and blinks to indicate the presence of a K-band radar. The blink rate increases as the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is also heard. 3. Ka-SuperWideband Signal Indicator— A yellow LED lights and blinks to indicate the presence of a Ka-SuperWideband radar signal. The blink rate increases as the radar source gets closer. A distinct audio alert is also heard. 4. Laser Signal Indicator— A red LED under L lights and blinks to indicate the presence of a laser signal. A distinct audio alert is also heard. 5. SWS Signal Indicator— When an early warning hazard or informational signal is detected, the yellow SWS LED begins to blink and the amber K-band LED lights. A distinct audio alert is also heard. 6. Power-On Indicator— A green LED under P lights to indicate power is being supplied to the unit and the unit is turned on. 7. LED Signal Strength Meter—Four LEDs give an accurate visual indication of the strength of radar or laser signals. 8. City Mode Indicator—A green LED under C lights to indicate that you selected City Mode. 9. Auto Mute Indicator— A red LED under M lights to indicate that you selected the Auto Mute feature. Please make sure you give me a rating and I hope this helps, cbinny1
VG-2 is a technology that police use to detect radar detectors.
Detectors with this feature will detect when VG-2 is in use, and alert
you to its presence.
the x,k,ka codes you see flashing are......
X, K, and Ka Superwide are the radar bands that are used by police radar guns. X band was the first band used for by radar guns, but is now the least used. All radar detectors that we carry detect all 3 of these bands.

You should try to find out what type of radar devices your police uses.ESD7000 model does not support some devices such as Ku band radar signal, but it should detect all laser signal.Laser signal is often jammed by sun light.If your police uses radar detector detectors VG2 it will force your detector to hide from it making it invisible for detecting.Try talking to someone who has other type of detector that works in your town.It is possible that you will be forced to buy another model.
rick12, Vg2 is a detector used by law enforcement to detect your detector.lol I hope thats not too confusing. Basically, what it does is sniff out your detector after it goes off. If your detector "smells" the VG2 searching, your unit shuts down so as to not put out a signal to alert it(vg2) Kind of like a stealth mode,, Here's a report on some of the popular ones; http://www.radarbusters.com/2003vg2testingarticle.cfm I hope this was what you were looking for, let us know, Mechanic
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.
