I have a BMW edition LI that I have installed in the kidney grill of my car. I got the tester from LI and noticed some mixed results and wondering if anyone has any insight, or if this is standard/known behavior:
- Unless I point the tester directly at the grill, the LI does not pick it up
- I can point the tester to other areas of the front such as the license plate or headlights and my Valentine 1 will consistently chime every time, but the LI will only work on occasion (and consistently after clicking the test button 3 or 4 times only)
Any thoughts on what the problem could be that would have these characteristics?
As a side note, I drove past a couple LEO's on motorcycles cops last week who were using LIDAR--I clearly saw them point at my car (I was the only one on the road) and fire away, which was confirmed by my V1 going nuts. The LI didn't make a peep. Puzzled, I called the guys at LI and they asked where I live, and after finding out that I'm in the Atlanta area, they said that it's likely they were using a gun that isn't supported, as one of the manufacturers equips local PD with the latest and greatest.
Would appreciate anyone's guidance or assistance here.
