As a newcomer learning the ropes I was hesitant to post this, but it is bugging me so I thought I would ask, especially as I have only had the V1 for a few days.
I was entering onto an Interstate in Eastern PA this morning and just as I merged into slightly heavier than average traffic the laser alert on my V1 went off. I'd never heard it before and didn't know what it was for sure until I was able to consult the manual, though I was pretty sure it was laser when it happened. Because I was merging with traffic I wasn't able to pay too close attention to the radar unit to tell what direction it was from, but I did see the three bars and got the siren tone. Also (again due to the traffic and the merge) I could not get a good look around when it happened. It only sounded for a couple of seconds, tops.
My questions are these: Is it at all possible this was some sort of false? Granted, I had a cheap unit before I got the V1 but I've still never had a laser signal sound off. Do the PSP use laser now? It isn't listed on the forum sticky by state nor by town.
Thanks for any help!
