The position of my vent mounted cell phone could set off laser alerts on my Gen 1. Angling my phone away solved the problem.Okay, a couple of things. First of all, many cars, mine included (Porsche), allow the "accessories" which in my car includes the lighter socket, to remain on for around 30 minutes after the ignition is turned off. My guess is that's what happening in your case.
On the subject of false laser alerts, I drive in sunny CA and have yet to receive even one laser alert after two weeks of driving with the V1Gen2. Based on a couple of reports on this forum of false laser alerts I was thinking maybe mine wasn't working so I checked it with my golf laser rangefinder and voila it worked perfectly both front and from the rear. So maybe this false alerting is a "bug" in some of the early units??
Installing ALP's let me turn off laser completely.
