Taking the iBOT through theft detection devices at stores

Question from a reader:

I have an unrelated iBOT question for you. The "book" says not to take the iBOT through those theft detection devices at store exits. I've obeyed this so far, but I wonder if it's an old wives tail. Any thoughts?


I asked someone at IT once. They said to not take the iBOT through them while in anything but standard function. Going through the theft detector can shut the iBOT down, resulting in it crashing from balance function to standard function. This is what I have been told, and just to be safe, I've always transitioned to standard when I go through them. I highly doubt such a thing would happen, but better safe than sorry.

Any other iBOT users have any thoughts?
