Default Max 360c False Alerts

I am having a problem. This morning the RD did an update and now every few minutes I get an alert from the rear at either 24.123MH or 24.124MH.

I drove over 200 mile today and did not get any other alert.

Any ideas anyone?

Could it have been from a car behind you? Give it another day or two. If it continues, contact our service department.

It wasn't the car behind as it happened in rural areas where there were no cars and always at the same frequency.

I just downloaded a new update and we will see what happens.

By any chance, was the sun low on the horizon? If it was, and you were driving in-and-out of shadows, this can cause false Laser alerts.

I think he said the false was at 24 MHz not laser.

It did another update yesterday and does the same thing. Also, it has not picked up a cop running radar (which they love to do in our area) since the first update.

I've had this happen with certain vehicle's behind me using their safety warning systems.

There is no rhyme or reason. Had it happen this morning while on my dead end street. Had it happening this morning with no cars behind me. Had it happen with various cars behind me.

All at the same frequency, 24.123Mhz
