    Default X50 Crazy Falsing Today

    I was on 35 South between Austin and Dallas and my X50 was falsing POP for more than 5 minutes, between POP falses it would go to full on Ka alert. It was the strangest thing I've ever seen.

    There were no LEOs around, and I couldn't spot any unmarked cruisers in traffic.

    There was a big diesel F250 or F350 with a detector or some device mounted high in his windshield. I couldn't tell exactly what it was, but when I got far ahead of him my alerts stopped.

    Does anyone have any idea what would cause this? Possibly the operation of some kind of jammer or interference with another detector?

    It was a POS. detector in the truck. Nothing to worry about, happens to me from time to time. Someone at school has a Radioshack unit that sets off my POP, and there's a truck with an RMR unit that does it too.

    It was the detector you saw. It was a crappy detector leaking waves that were identical to that of POP.

    You know, not to jack the thread- but my old RadioShack detector gave awsome warning on K band. It was at least 10 second, and the longest I got was about a minute.

    Although after a while all it did was false "Warning, moving train"

    But while it lasted, it was a pretty decent detector.

    The best thing I would tell you to do is turn off POP no matter if you have a V1 or X50. I did this on my V1 about a week before I shipped it to VR for a firmware upgrade and it helped cut down on the falses

    I have owned 3 x50's, and I was lucky enough to get one of them that did not false on POP like crazy.

    That's because your first two units were not version 5.
