read about the problem here -- probably should sticky this for future 9500ix users
9500IX falses due to Brake preview, active cruise
My guess was correct, the car is causing the 9500ix to give constant false positives on laser continuously.
Rather then return this unit and get something else I have come up with a rather simple fix for getting rid of the false laser alerts given off by my car and its nav unit.
get a peice of electrical tape and apply as shown
This cresent moon shape peice points straight down, it is not sloped or angeled. There is no need for that (you will never be lasered from your dashboard
) when mounting directly below the mirror, so I just covered it.
THIS IS THE PROBLEM AREA
BEFORE (THIS IS MY GUESS OF HOW IT WORKS I AM NO EXPERT)
Everything is working now, NO MORE FALSE LASER SIGNLAS, GPS locks ON after 10 seconds in clouds and around houses. My guess is that somehow the false laser interferance was also responsible for that also.
dont send your unit in, just do this instead and save on shipping. I know it seems cheesy but it works.
originally I had designed what I call a "duck bill" for the unit, it was black but I didnt have to use it, electrical tape works better and you cant even see it.
