V1 false laser warning in STi?

I don't know if it's just me but my V1 seems to give a lot of false laser warnings in my STi. No more than I start it up and am sitting there letting her warm up and my V1 goes off with a laser warning and then a few times while driving it in the middle of no where. During my daily commutes in my Legacy it does not do this.

Anyone else notice this?

My V1 has had two Laser warnings since I installed it last week. They both seemed to be from brake lights. The X band is always on. A cement truck and a dump truck have even set it off with their perimeter radar sensors.

There should be a law that says all non traffic radar has to be X and police cannot use X band. OK that won't happen.... :x

It did save me from an instant on Ka band this morning. I felt like I needed to write into the website with a first hand experience of how the V1 paid for itself or something.

The real story is how I convinced my wife to buy the V1 for Father's day!

On another issue, I learned recently the MN has a traffic law restricting the mounting of anything (especially radar detectors) on the windshield. Other than that they are supposed to be legal.
