Radar Detectors, are they becoming worthless?

I have a couple of passport max 360's and they have served me well. I have had a radar detector in every vehicle I have owned for the past 20 years. Just when GPS technology and Bluetooth hit the market they were nearly perfect at avoiding speeding tickets. Recently mine seem to constantly alert. A lot of new cars are using a k band signal I assume for parking sensors. Chryslers seem to be the most common. It's becoming so annoying I am about ready to stop using them. I was wondering if there are any updates expected or if any of you have found a work around to avoid this nuisance? I have the ability to block any signal by location but that does no good since the vehicles are traveling the same direction as I am. They also seem to pulse which is even more annoying.

Thanks for any advice.
