I think it shows up the speed reading at random numbers no? For instance you may be going 120, but it will show anywhere between 20 and 180.. That is what I've heard at least.. Also, I heard that there is a way to make a radar/laser jammer at home. Does anyone know if this is true?

I think you can get away with it by placing it inside your front bumper or something... Hide it well?!? Where is yours placed?

also. it only blocks lazer. my radar detector never picked up lazer for me, meaning cops dont use it round here. so to me that would be almost useless.

I don't think detectors are that accurate when it comes to lasers, at least that is my thought. I have never seen a laser hit on mine, and I am pretty sure that WA state patrol uses radar.

V1 will tell you about the presence of radar signals and laser signals that hit its antennae. Radar has a lot of scatter and a wide beam so the sensitivity is quite good. Laser, however, is a much narrower beam and is harder to detect because the laser cone is only a couple of feet across at something like 1/4 or 1/2 a mile. Since most radar/laser detectors are mounted high on the windshield (to maximize sensitivity to radar) they are actually quite far away from the two primary targets for laser operators -- the front license plates and the front headlights. Thus, it is entirely possible for you to be nabbed with laser without your detector even knowing about it.

Secondly, laser is so much more precise and accurate, and scatter is so minimal that by the time you detect a laser signal, you're hit and the game is over.

That is why active laser countermeasures are the only effective way of combating this growing problem. Yes, they work. No question about that.

I am organizing a group buy on the Blinder X-Treme unit at:

http://groupbuy.m-powered.com/viewtopic.php?t=6

if you're interested in trying one out pretty inexpensively.

I, personally, have Lidatek LE30's on two of my vehicles and they have worked flawlessly to date. That being said, I came across a couple of tests that pegged the Blinder unit as even more effective, so I wanted to give one a try and in the process got the opportunity to pass along a great deal to other enthusiasts.

(This is not my line of work, so I'm going to give it a whirl for about a month and if I get the minimum required to make it worthwhile, then I'll go ahead and process the order -- otherwise, I'll just bag it).

I know that the Lidatek, the Blinder, and the Escort units have been shown to work in tests. Some others have been shown to be next to completely ineffective at jamming laser, so buyer beware and do your homework. I have put some links in my post at the other site to get you started on your adventure.

Best wishes,
David

P.S. They are NOT illegal in MOST states as asserted above. They are illegal in several, though, so keep that in mind. Again, information in the above link.

there are two types of laser jammers .. active and passive i believe.... 1 type is illegal in all states (but it doesn't really work anyways) and 1 is legal as of now

also, you might get away with using a V1 and VEIL (i believe ) ... it's a paste that you put on your headlights and license plate that will decrease the effective laser's distance by several times, thus once the laser hits your car, your detector will go off, but the cop won't get the reading until you get like 500ft away from him
