    Today I was driving in a moderate/heavy rain for the first time since having my R3. I was behind a new Dodge Ram with LED tail lights for about a mile stretch of driving. It was raining hard enough to keep the windshield constantly covered. Six out of the seven times that the Ram brake lights illuminated, my R3 alerted to laser. I'm guessing it was a combination of the rain and the height of the tail lights, because I have never been able to attributed any on my laser alerts to tail lights.

    Thanks for info. I’m part of the laser false alert club too. Only had 1 false so far.

    My girlfriend's Galaxy Note 3 causes my R3 to laser false constantly when she is using it in my car.

    I can't justify the cost of ALP. I have encountered exactly 2 LEO shooting laser in the past 2 years.
