Currently, I have an Eclipse AVX2404 head unit linked to 3 Alpine monitors, 1 in the dash, and 2 in the headrests. As it is.. my ESCORT Passport 8500 x50 constantly (every 1-2 minutes) gives me a LASER warning. This is a constant annoyance, because it goes off even when I well know that there arent any police anywhere near and ones that much less have LIDAR guns.
Do you guys see any problems with this setup that would cause some sort of interference? Or is it a problem with the Radar?



Also, can i get some feedback on how my car looks? Thanks guys.

well, why dont you try the radar in another car. Also, if you take any remote control and aim it at the passport and press a button, the lazer warning will go off. maybe you have some IR going off around the radar detector?

Very cool :)

Does the laser go off only when you are actually driving, or will it trigger any time that you are using your system? I don't see how your system can be a problem, but be aware that there are many cars that will trip your laser detector (e.g. cruise control on certain cars).

Your Passport's laser detection is useless to begin with though. I'd just turn it off and stick to what it's good at: radar. And get a Blinder jammer to complete the package :)

Maybe something jacked up with the detector. I would try it in another car. As far as all the monitors, isn't it kinda redundant to have 2 up front? It just says pull me over, IMO. Car looks nice tho. Great choice of equipment from what I can see.

lol.. yeah all the monitors is a bit overkill. I dont use the monitors btw. they are just there for show i suppose. i bought the car with them btw. i only added the eclipse monitor/head unit. the escort customer service techs told me that something in my car is causing the interference and they can shield the laser sensor in the actual unit to prevent it from going off in the future but i need proof of purchase, which i dont have... if anyone has a fix to this please PM me. but for now ill do what azzuro suggested and turn off the laser functionality.

I would get a blinder jammer, just dont have the 400+ to drop on it. and yes the laser goes off while i am actually driving. Dont know really. I think it might have something to do with my headunit.. i dont remember it doing it before i had it installed. but i wouldnt trade my eclipse for anything... but a new eclipse lol.
