Default Anyone have radar problems?

I've had two different radar detectors, both passport (8500 and 9500i) and when I go wot in my car, as I reach full boost my radar detector just screams laser. I dont know what to do but its very annoying and scars the hell out of me every time. Anyone else have this? Ive tried it in my friends cars but it only happens in mine.

It's a common problem, try searching in the electronics section... or look at the above thread to start...

I have a new 9500i, and I've only gotten one laser warning since I got it a few weeks ago. I go WOT all the time, full boost every day couple times a day. The only time it's gone off for me, was when I was next to an RSX-S going up a hill, I was like WTF...hmmmmm? but there easily could of been a cop somewhere, so me thinks it was either the RSX-S or a cop... cuz like I said I go WOT all the time and it has only happend that one time. Although i have a 0 gauge grounding mod @ 4 points in my engine bay. I'd say to make sure your Ish is grounded well first. Then see what happends...

I have a Cobra ESD-7100 that sets off with the laser indicator at WOT over 3500rpm. I am going to try a clip on magnet and see if that stabilizes the power spikes. If that doesn't work i will try the 100uf cap. Good to know that other people have the same issue.
