Ah...I was wondering why all of the sudden my V1 was giving me false laser signals. This happens to me at least once/wk. I was going to send the thing in for service but now I get it. Maybe Ill just turn off the laser function. In PA and NJ there's hardly any laser being used.

On my previous car I used to get false laser alams from my Garmin StreetPilot evey night at dusk. I had to adjust the way both devices were aimed to prevent this. I don't use the Garmin in my E93 (I have IDrive). I use the same V1 but have not any problems with false laser alerts..

Infiniti uses lasers in their smart cruise to judge the distance between vehicles. This sets off the V1. I wouldn't be surprised if other manufacturers with this feature start setting it off as well. :thumbdwn:
