So I've been getting a few more falses than usual (I've been driving in rush hour traffic more too) and so far, I've pinned down two culprits.

04-10 Infiniti QX56
03-07 Infiniti FX35

Any others that we know of? I don't think these falses have anything to do with sunlight and trees because it's repeatable and we just typically see more cars on the road during those times (rush hours).

Very interesting. Good work in pinning down the makes and model years. What were they detected and announced as?

I don't know much about Infinity brands, but I am almost certain they didn't have laser cruise control in those years. I'm going to suggest that it may be lighting related. Possibly IR light bleeding off from the Headlights, Daytime Running lights, or Tail Lights.

Just adding info for support of the topic. This was an Infiniti behind me I believe. This started to happen with firmware 8.05.

For me it was the same Traffipatrol issue that you already heard about. I remember there being a dark blue (Infiniti-like) SUV behind me for around 5 minutes or so.

Infiniti almost always alerts to Traffipatrol XR. I've only had 1 Dragoneye false as I was trying to test my theory for the QX56.

For some reason, none of the lights were on for FX35.

Might be useful to make it a switchable option with default off (or make the 1.08FW available for international only). We don't want to kill options for others outside the US.

It will stay for outside the USA.

Are you sure you aren't on test mode?? It only blares constantly if you're on test mode (or you don't have a JTK time set)

False came in and initially thought it was a real hit so I broke down and went into RCV only mode. Then it continued for minutes on end until I powered down

You must have had an Infiniti following you for quite a while then. You'll either want to pull away or let him by.

love this system TMG. Best built, easy to use and just has it all. (Had li before). Very impressed so far. Excellent service
Can't wait to get my rears by Thanksgiving. Maybe they will have headlight issue solved by then as I'll have rears then. Right now in 75 days not 1 false. Going into sun and sundown. Very impressed so far:)

It's not a sun issue, it's only those two cars as far as I've seen. I saw it again today. It's way more common in the rear but front isn't uncommon.

Just noticed this thread and remembered my own Infinity encounter from last week.
Yep, QX56. Had one just like that today.

No infiniti I was riding alone
They don't have to be right behind you. You can get hit from 1000ft easily. Maybe it was a bug.
