: K40 Radar Detector and Driver Assist Package?

12-13-2011, 08:24 PM
Does anyone have a K40 radar detector with the camera package? I had mine installed before I brought my car home, but the dealer claims that the lane departure system and blind spot radar sets the detector off.

Is anyone experiencing the same thing or know how to integrate the two?

I don't know about K40, but you'll get lots of info if you search "radar detector". My understanding is that you cannot switch off the radar used by blind-spot / lane departure assist, and will have to reprogram your detector. I am not sure how that will work on K40. Here is the official response I got from Valentine One:

"The only thing to try is to go to programming and turn off the "J" feature:
We are well-aware of this industry-wide problem but as of yet don't have a fix for this. Whenever we do something new, we post the results on the web at www.valentine1.com."

The J feature is disabling POP.
