    Default First Laser Alert!!

    Holy shyt,

    I thought my cell phone was freaking out and started ringing uncontrollably. I bought my X50 in February and the other day I was sitting at a red light when ALL HELL broke loose. The signal continued for about 3 seconds and stopped. I never saw anything on either side of the road and never saw the trap! Amazing.

    Maybe it's some nutter like us with a cell jammer?

    Oh wait "laser alert"...

    I thought the phone was nuts... :shock:


    My Uniden LRD 9000W would always laser false often if the sun hit it just right. Really F*cking annoying, you're crusing at a solid 120km/h on a expressway with a 70km/h limit and "baaaH" "holy crap what the F was that!!" "Nope just the sun".... :grr.

    Eventually I put a tie-wrap to it and to the sunvisor so I could fold it down when it alerted, which oddly enough usually meant I should put down the visor. "Visor Alert - a Uniden Innovation"?

    Default Clarification......

    When the RD alerted to 'laser', it sounded JUST like my cell phone ring and I answered my phone. The problem was that the noise didn't stop!

    However, I must say that the X50 has been damn good to me as I bought it right after I bought my new '05 Mazda Tribute in March. I now have over 10k on the Tribute and numerous 'saves' on the freeway between Albuquerque and El Paso and the other I-40 / I-25 drives I make each week.

    Great RD and I just used the 'reset' trick mentioned on another post and I have the version 5.

    You could always change your ringtone, like kids do every day.

    Just becasue you don't see them DOES NOT mean they can't see you.

    Also I like the one about the Cell jammer.

    Cell phone jammers dont send laser alerts. But it does send the passport into self cal mode. :cry: But anyway certain cars with led tailights make rd's send a laser alert.

    Maybe it was a person with a laser gun. They could of seen your
    radar detector and were behind you and did it just to piss you off.
