    Default Bel V995 Question

    When I get near certain buildings (especially right next to a motion detector for a door) my X Band meter goes all the way up and starts flashing. I know it is obviously a false alarm, but what does the flashing mean. I have been out on the highway or a local road where X goes all the way up when I pass a cop, but it never flashes. It only flashes when I'm right in front of a couple select buildings. Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Zach

    I think due to the intensity of the signal. You may ask Crazy Rob, but I never and I mean never got a full altert with my RX 65 on police radar. Sure it did when I was at Walgreens, but that's one of the reasons I sold it on Ebay.

    from my experience, the display flashes and you get an almost solid tone if the detector suddenly gets an alert (not ramps up) that is above the 3rd of 4th level on the display. really is nice for instant on, but makes you crap you pants even more :wink:. its kinda like an instant on alert almost

    Well luckily i was just in a shopping center not on a road or else i think i would have crapped my pants Is that what it does for instant on? I have recieved POP, Laser, X, K, Ka. I have never seen anything for instant on. On another note I got a strange false laser one day in my residential neighborhood. No cops around, and I dont think my town even has laser yet. I have heard that when the sun is very bright it can set off the laser alert? Is this true?

    i know that it will usually do this if it suddenly detects a stronger radar source, so basically yes thats what it will do for instant on. if you turn off your detector in a parking lot wiht a strong signal and then turn it back on, it'll usually simulate an instant on hit. thats just my experience with it

    Several things can give you a false laser alert, many headlights from Expensive luxury cars, tailights from GM such as Avalanche, near airports, and even being to close to your indash dvd/cd player. Some people have gotten falses on their X50s when they accelerate...

    On my BEL v995 if I get a all the sudden FULL alert it flashes to show you importance!!! I get the same with any alert that jumps past 2 leds like if I was driving along i and suddenly got an 4led hit it would go to full audible alert and blink the display to get attention then after attention is gotten it will so the ramp up
