After upgrading my R7 to 1.33, I was cruising down the highway, a rural one so not much traffic....straight and flat. All of a sudden I get a MRCD hit.
Low signal and though I didn't have time to pay attention to the two vehicles coming towards me, I suspect it was from either a BSM or some other radar enhanced vehicle option.
I've never had a false alarm on MRCD prior to 1.33 that I can recall. I'm 99% sure it wasn't a cop. I've never seen MRCD in my area before.
Anyone else ever get any false hits on MRCD?

I was getting false alerts to MRCD everyday when in areas with several sources of k band at differing frequencies. I ended up turning it off unless I am visiting areas like Edmonton that it is a known source of MRCD

Having MRCD on is another avenue for false alerts. So unless you have MRCD in your area or are traveling to somewhere that does, I'd recommend turning it off.
