The EX is very sensitive to laser.

Are you on a bridge when this happens? Can you tell us more about your surroundings in detail when this happens?

Even a Video would be the best.

I'm guessing that it is the LASER speed cameras that are in Maryland. They are only authorized for two types of enforcement zones:

School Zones: Not only are they used during what one would consider a "normal" school day; Maryland law restricts the recording of images in school zones to Monday through Friday, from 6 AM to 8 PM Additionally, they can be used up to 1/2 mile from a school, as long as the local governmental unit approves the road being covered.

Work Zones:
Where are the speed cameras located and how are the sites selected?
To maximize the program's flexibility and impact, the speed cameras used in work zones are deployed in sport-utility vehicles referred to as "mobile ASE units". A mobile ASE unit can be located within the limits of any work zone on expressways and controlled access highways where the speed limit is 45 mph or greater.

My EX falses more on laser/lidar than any single ER unit I have ever owned. Other cars cause it as well as weather (wet and lights)..........

Wet weather causes it to alert to laser?... That's a first. Sounds like it needs to be serviced.

Yep- it is the laser speed cameras, as well as some laser door openers on some buildings I have found out. I do think that wet conditions on a shiny fence cause it too on one stretch of road but it may be a laser door opener on the Synagogue that is actually causing this alert.

Really strange but whatever.

I get laser alerts from vehicles passing at me , sometimes on both my blinder and my rex , when I pick it up on my rex its mostly falses in the middle of nowhere and it just goes off and sometimes it seems like 18 wheelers give off laser alerts as well , not sure but it has alerted alot when I run up on 18 wheelers , not so much anymore on this lastest update unless its just certain trucks . I also know that some vehicles have a type of ether radar or laser on the front and rear for distance when pulling up to a wall and may set off your laser , as my blinder seems to hit on these types of vehicles

I have same issue in Toronto. False laser alerts every single day. On all firmwares including last 1.4, mostly on highway.

Also I get false red light camera alerts on highway as well all the time. Obviously bumb box does not understand that I am driving close by red light camera, but I am on highway, not on that road with intersection and move in different direction. Their soft only checks if GPS coordinates are in 500ft proximity from coordinates in memory and makes conclusion. Brilliant. Maybe its one of those hi-tech patents that manufacturer is so proud about, but for me its just a bad programming skills and totally unacceptable.

Also "TSR on" makes Escort EX blind to built in K-band police car radars. Would be nice to mention that in manual, but the manual form escort is 1 page piece of sht with no explanation at all. Same for PDF on the website which is just a copy of mention above.

Taking into account that installed in opposite corner Beltronics STi driver (btw made in 2005) has none of the mentioned above issues, I probably gonna throw this Escort EX (made in 2018) in garbage bin if no fixes will be released in 1.5
