Yesterday, I'm driving through a main road in a residential area where the speed limit is about 35 mph. In this area, there are absolutely no businesses around. I see an SUV approaching me (not a cop) and I make a note of it to my wife because it has six headlights (horrible for avoiding laser :wink: ). Anyways, as soon it is along side me, BAM, pop false. Weird, I thought.
Later on in the night, I'm getting on the Mass pike in Framingham, and I pass two vehicles on the side of the road (SUV and a truck, neither cops), and the moment I am right along side of them, BAM, pop false.
Now this is two pops in the same day when I normally never get false pops. Anyways, my thought is that maybe the X50 is falsing on POPs because it's detecting crappy radar detectors when we pass the vehicles in which their installed (It's picking up their quick, weak signal). Has anyone else noticed that they get false pops at the moment they are alongside another vehicle??
Another reason this makes sense to me refers back to the sticky that Sethy had about the versions of software installed on the X50. Many people had confilicting experiences with falses for version five. Why? They are the same version. Perhaps these different experiences in false pops are just due to the fact that more, or less, people use crappy radar detectors in the area you live and your just picking up their leaks. Both of these pops occurred in Framingham where I never normally drive. In Newton, where I live, I hardly ever see people with radar detectors mounted on their windshields, if ever.
What do you think? :idea:
