  1. #1

    Default Laser false?

    Hi everone. well today is my first day owning a V1, I pulled into autozone shopping center and I parked into the front spot right infront of the store and as i did i got a laser alert. What do you think caused it to do so?

    The light from the autozone sign........Neon lights cause it to false along with cruise controls in expensive cars and some brake lights......

    I know i did stuck in traffid behind a Chevy envoy..... But the falses let you know just how sensitive the V1 is on Laser...EXTREMELY it is a selling point of the V1 along with the rear antenna

    It has nothing to do with the cruise control in your car, instead it's cruise controls in some expensive cars that use laser to sense the cars in front of them. Infiniti FX series are the ones that always seem to set my V1 off when one goes by in the opposite direction, or if I get one behind me.

    Neon signs and neon brakelights (older Envoys and Trailblazers) are common sources of laser falses as well. This happens if I'm behind one in traffic and they're braking.

    Yea those neon signs will get the V1 falsing. I get the false everytime but it is in town in traffic so i always think it is a false. I got a false from the neon lights lining a Sonic.
