Got my first laser falses from the V1 today. I figured I'd post them here in the hope that they may be useful. Looks like they were all caused by the sun.

This one as I was pulling into a gas station:

This on made my drop anchor and I was not pleased.

By now I was desensitized.

Laser is getting turned off until Valentine updates this thing.

Also, maybe @johnboy00 would be able to shed some light on something for me. I think twice, video 1 maybe and video 3, after the V1 falsed to Lidar, it started picking up my car's BSM for a while. It never falses on L mode until I get another alert. Maybe there is something in the way it works that causes it to alert to everything at once, including stuff it's filtering out, when it gets another alert? See below 24.072 24.079 24.082

Where do you have the detector mounted? I never had any sun falses with either of my V1s, but I have them mounted over the RVM behind the tint at the top of the windshield. Maybe that blocks just enough? Still get alerts to Volvos and legit laser guns though.

Just below the frits, and just to the left of the dashcam. What the dashcam sees is pretty much what the V1 sees.

I've contacted Valentine about the falses but I don't think the unit itself is faulty or anything so no reason to send it in. I think they can make it filter better with a software update. For now, I've disabled laser detection as I don't need it anyway.
