    List of Vehicles That Give Off False Alerts

    False laser alerts are typically caused by LIDAR based anti-collision sensors or automatic cruise control systems. The sensor is usually located at the top of the windshield where the RVM mounts to the glass. Common offenders are Volvos, Mazdas, and Infinitis.

    Differences between the V1connection, the app and V1Driver?

    Here's an article from Vortex: https://www.vortexradar.com/2015/12/band-segmentation-and-custom-sweeps/

    Differences between the V1connection, the app and V1Driver?

    They're entirely different apps. The V1Connection app can change settings, act as a remote display, and perform box muting. V1Driver can log and map alerts, do autolockouts, speed based muting, remote display, BSM snoozing, etc. I believe there is a demo/beta version you can try for free for a...

    V1Connection the app doesn't do lockouts. Get V1Driver, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

    Looking to buy first v1

    Did you see my post above? That was from the VR website today. The site hasn't been down, it just reports the upgrade program is currently unavailable for very old detectors that require a hardware update since there are none in stock.

    V1 didn't alert until I had already passed an LEO, officer claims he clocked me

    What area is this? Maybe a handheld radar gun? Are you running custom sweeps? If so, what are they?

    V1 didn't alert until I had already passed an LEO, officer claims he clocked me

    If he was parked perpendicular to the road, it was likely LIDAR. Does it say on the ticket how he clocked you? The V1 is probably the most sensitive WS mount RD on the market to laser, I'm surprised it didn't alert. Where do you have it mounted? Do you have laser disabled?

    Site has always been working as long as the detector was current or only required a FW upgrade. It's only older detectors that require a hardware upgrade (ie new detector) that are giving an error since they are currently out of stock.

    Sticky Threads in Social Groups?

    Yes, I was able to sticky this thread shortly after the group was created: https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?threads/70602/ There was a menu option on the top right drop down for something like "thread tools" or "make sticky" that is missing now. I haven't tried to sticky a thread since then...

    Looking to buy first v1

    Really? I thought they always updated the S/N when performing a FW update: Thus you'd either send it a detector requiring a HW upgrade and get a new detector (with new S/N), or send in a current HW model for a FW update and get a new S/N. What S/N are your detectors that don't fall into the...

    Sticky Threads in Social Groups?

    I'm an admin in a social group, but the "thread tools" option is missing and I am unable to sticky a thread. Did this option get moved or renamed after the XF move?
