V1 interference from blind spot monitors?
Hi all,
I'm almost certain that the blind spot monitor is causing a persistent low strength intermittent alert on my Valentine 1 detector. From emails with Valentine it seems consistent with their observations of the K band indication. Wondered if anyone else had this issue and if they discovered a cure?

Yes, turn off K Band.

Only solution I've come up with.

What about just turning off the POP? Does that work? I have my 535 coming with blind spot assist, and I'm curious if my Escort will do the same. I read somewhere turning off POP might solve the issue.

After some exchanges with Valentine thier suggestions agree with the above.

"If it's interference from the blind spot detection system, I would suggest activating the Traffic Monitor Filter (available only on newer units) or disabling the POP detection. For more information on programming, please click on the following link:"

With more cars coming with this feature and interference source, maybe there will be software developed to set the sensitive of the rear receiver.
