I bought a Beltronics RX65 Professional about 1.5 years ago, for the past year it has given false POP alerts when I first get in the car on a cold morning. For example, yesterday it was 19 degrees outside, I start the car and sure enough I keep getting POP alerts and I have to just unplug the detector until the radar detector warms up then it is fine.
I also have always received laser alerts constantly when the sun shines towards the lens and sometimes for no reason at all, it occurs so much that i turned it off. For example, I brought the rx65 in the house a few minutes ago and plugged it into a 12v adapter and turned on the laser mode and it suddenly went off for no reason 2 times. I know the police are not running laser in my house lol so of course it is a false alert.
I called beltronics today, the first customer rep said to send it in for service. They wanted my credit card # so I told them I would call back because I did not have it with me. I call a few hours later and a different tech told me the pop will give false alerts when it is below 35 or above 90 degrees out that it was normal. That sounded a little strange but he said not to send it in. I have 3 older bel detectors and i have no issues with false laser alerts EVER.
Should I just turn off POP and laser and live with it or send it in for service?
