I don't know why, but something seems to have fried in my V1. I was out on a little shopping trip when, in a place that is literally miles from an automatic door, I started getting an X-band alert ahead. Only one dot on the signal strength meter. I thought it was the truck ahead of me, but that turned out not to be the case when he turned and I still got the false. The arrows began to jump around, too. Sometimes it was ahead, sometimes to the side, sometimes to the rear, and then back. It would stop for a few seconds and then start. I drove past some K and X-band door openers and it seemed to alert to them just fine. As I departed it kept on falsing the one weak X bogey. I thought it might be interference from my car so I tried turning off the satellite radio and head unit. No luck. Still falsing. When I got back to my apartment I turned off the engine a watched. Still falsing. Then I turned it off and back on, and it didn't false. Turned it off and on again, no false. Turned the V1 off and on one more time, and I got one weak X-band false to the rear. Damn.
I don't know what's going on but I'm not happy. I've seen the occasional random X-band false but never anything like this. Has anybody had this happen? Any explanation? I don't know if this is related but I've had dozens of weak Ka falses since I got this back, and only two "J" alerts that were the day after I got it.
VR will be getting a phone call tomorrow. I really don't want to pay the shipping to send this thing out less than two weeks after I got it back from the upgrade service.
