I'm sure many of you have experienced false laser alerts when accelerating hard, honking the horn, or sometimes even turning on your windshield wipers.
The folks at Escort have known about this problem for some time, and if you complain, you can return your detector to them and they will modify it and put some shielding in it to correct the problem. If you have this done before the warranty runs out, they will do it for free, but if you let the warranty expire you'll have to pay $60 for them to do it.
Its something they really should be doing to every detector they sell before it leaves the factory. Why you should have to return it to get a factory defect that they already know about fixed is beyond me. They apparently are not putting a good enough filter on the incoming power line to filter out the EMI from the ignition and other sources that ride in on the DC. Valentine suffers a similar problem, and their simple fix was to add a capacitor across the power leads to shunt the EMI to ground.
If I ever buy another Escort, I'll return it as soon as it arrives and make them modify it so it doesn't false on LASER ever time I step on the gas. Maybe sooner or later they will get the message and fix this problem instead of forcing the consumer to complain and return it.
If your detector falses on LASER frequently, I'd highly suggest you return it for rework. I had mine done and now it works much better. I should have done it sooner.
