    Question:

    Whenever I go into New Jersey, I like to enable X-band (or, as the V1 calls it, "Euro X"). Every 45 seconds or so, I'll get a brief, half-second alert "from the side" from either 10.222 or 10.522. I've confirmed that this is coming from my phone. When I've put the phone in the back, the V1 will report the alert is "from the rear", and when I turn the phone off, it stops.

    These false alerts come from either 10.222 or 10.522, and never deviate from these two frequencies. I know that lockouts are generally based on both frequency AND location. Is there a way to have V1Driver mute alerts from the two frequencies globally?

    I’ve thought about adding such thing as changing profiles by state but never got there. Features that are complex and rarely used by users tend to have a net negative result on the product. But sometimes I might find a simple hook that can hit several use cases. And I’m always thinking of how to do that.

    Also keep in mind V1Driver is an Automated Muter, not a signal blocker. Your V1 will still constantly be lit up and not mute it until after a short blast comes through. I don’t think K-mute in V1 applies to X.

    Which iPhone you using?
    I’ve tested X Off and on, but generally leave it off and never had my iPhone trip the V1 X band. But I’ll double check.

    iPhone 5c, but the false X-band hits are coming from my "main" use phone, a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on Verizon. I use the iPhone just for V1Driver and nothing else.

    I just enabled all bands on a V1 Laser, X, Ku, K, Ka and have 5 iDevices next to it and it's silent.

    iPhone 5
    iPhone 6s
    iPhone 7+
    iWatch
    MacBook Pro (with wifi and bluetooth) with 2 bluetooth mice and 1 bluetooth keyboard.

    For grins try turning various radios off on Samsung and see if you can narrow it down. Might be something like the Near Field Radio which you don't need while driving. Try Air Plane mode first to see if can even be turned off then turn them on 1 by 1.

    Yeah, I don't even use NFC so I keep that off. Usual operation is just Cell radio, wifi is on, Bluetooth is on, and GPS (which isn't a transceiver). I suspect it's the cell radio, as I've heard that the frequencies Verizon use with CDMA has also had similar problems with tripping people's R3s.

    All my iPhones are Verizon, I doubt it's Cellular. Probably a local oscillator in the phone.

    Do you have TMF2 enabled? Also try Rear K off. I don't know if rear K off affects X or if TMF2 does any filtering of X but worth a shot.
