Default Laser False

I've had a few laser falses (at least I believe they're falses), and wanted to get some opinions or advice on them.

Twice I've had my Redline alert to laser driving on I-85 in NC leaving Charlotte. I had passed the exit to the mall about a mile back, and the Redline alerted to laser. There weren't any LEO's around that I could see. Thoughts?

Also, whenever the Redline is pointed at my dash, such as when I'm adjusting settings or whatnot, it will alert to laser. I originally thought it was the LED's from the various items I have plugged into my cigarette lighter, but it'll alert even if it points at the dash. Anyone else have this happen?

That can and does happen with all detectors. Led tail lights, dash lights, dash display screens, cell phone screens and other odd sunset sunrise conditions can all cause a false laser alert.

I've gotten a couple of laser hits on I-85 in Charlotte as well, usually around the Exit 43 - 45 area. I guess there's something out there that's doing it, I've never gotten a laser alert from any LEOs in NC. A couple of mornings, sitting at the light heading out of my complex, I've gotten a laser hit - I assume it's the morning sun reflecting off the windows of the apartments across the street.
