    Default laser false

    My new detector was working great, and just today I decided to turn off X band to see what kind of difference it makes. When I arrived at my destination (shopping center), I got a laser false. I dont think it has anything to do with the X band, but I could be wrong. Why would it false in this area and has it happened to anyone else before? Also, when I drove in that same spot, it didnt false again.

    It's probably neon lights that is setting off the laser detector.

    Neon lights can cause laser falses. So can Infiniti FX SUVs with laser cruise controls, and the brakelights on some GMC Envoy and Chevy Trailblazer SUVs.

    Also, if the sun hits just right, especially if the windshield is wet (using the washer while driving toward the sun) can cause laser falses as well.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?

    yeah laser falses are never consistent

    i do get more laser falses from neons when its raining out, i guess the rain drops affect the way the v1 "sees" neon lights

    i also have x off and it didnt affect my laser detection
