: Valentine 1 problem - anyone else have one?

01-06-13, 08:05 PM
Have a weird problem with my valentine 1. I just bought my STS-V in November and my Valentine 1 regularly has false detection. On the 10 hour drive home it probably happened 50 times, including country areas with no other traffic. Today I took it off the mount and noticed that it will go off if either of the sensors are within view of the nav screen. I am wondering if the nav system is radiating something that causes the detection issue.

Is anyone else having this problem?

I have a valentine in my V with no false alarms under normal driving for the most part, and it's mounted to the rear view mirror stem and sits just below the mirror. If I hold my hand behind it though it will go off, presumably from something reflecting back into the receiver. Also sometimes if a car with bright LED tail lights is close in front of me with brakes on it sometimes goes off. On the freeway or highway etc though, usually quiet.
