My v1 is the latest firmware. only the low sunrise / sunset will cause it to go off now. prior to relocating, it was a constant issue.
Hey Guys,
FYI, the laser goes off constantly due to the POP detection in the V1 radar unit. I had to turn this off on my previous cars due to the lane departure/etc. functionality.

To do so, follow the below if you have the Valentine 1, no need to turn off laser. I had to do this again because I sent my V1 back to the company for the updated version on their upgrade program and forgot to turn this feature off:

Specifically:
I. How to enter the Programming Mode.
Starting with the Control Knob in the "off" position, Press and hold-in Knob and at the same time turn the Knob "on;" continue holding in the Knob until all front-panel lights are on (takes about 5 seconds).
Release the Control Knob.

II. How to determine your software version.
Press and immediately release the Control Knob to display software version. The software-version number is four digits that display one digit at a time in the Bogey Counter-example: 2.869.
Note your software number, then see the table below for features that are programmable in your unit.
Press and immediately release the Control Knob to exit software-version display.

Update the "J" code feature to "Off" (down arrow)

Hope that helps.
