Default 8500 false laser during acceleration

My 8500 model alerts for laser every time I accelerate from a stop. It does not seem to do it if I accelerate to pass another car and does it less often after I have been driving for 30 minutes. I drive a 1995 Chevy S10 ZR2 in the Chicagoland area. It would be less annoying if the laser alert volume was not so loud, which seems to over ride the volume control.

two options. Its electrical noise interfering with the laser circuitry. You can get a "filter" its actually a ferrite magnet that clips around the power cord. That should fix it, if it doesn't then the unit may need to be serviced.

I use to have this problem with the smartcord but when I hard wired it never had that problem again.
