Well what they are called here. A cop shoots you with a radar gun, the jammer sends back a false speed. YOu've probably heard of it.

They make them to go on your front license plate bracket hence, that is mostly where cops shoot you at to get a good reading.:fro:

Laser jammers are pretty useless to be honest. My cousin is a Fort Worth police officer, and a very good friend is a Samson Park police officers. Both have clocked plenty of people, and given them tickets for speeding, and impounded their car for jammers. They don't take lightly to them in Texas.

Nope sorry don't do jammers bro. Honestly after reading reviews I haven't found one that works 100% effectively. If someones needing a high end radar, that works hit me up though. Not any cheap cobra, whistler bs.

There's not a laser jammer out there that even works 10% of the time.

Agree'd.. I wouldnt trust any jammer.

They illegal due to fear of interference with other electric devices, not because the cops think they work... Laser works on rolling frequencies, just like a pager remote does for an alarm. Kinda hard to jam something that's on a random frequency, when it only takes a fraction of a second to pop you, and they can do it from over a mile away with a good shot. Ka Band is easy to **** with, but it's a system full of holes anyways. That's why cops rarely show up for tickets, cause they're usually clocked with Ka Band. Ka Band shoots a group of cars, and shows the speed for the fastest of the bunch. The officer is then required to visually decide which car is doing that speed. So it's not you vs. the radar, it's you vs. a quick glance into traffic, at a specific group of cars, by an officer 100+ feet away.

I'''m currently detector-less while mine is at Beltronics for warranty repair :crap:

*****. I have an escort x50. I need a down payment on a car. I'm only trying to get $160. for the thing! I figure it would have sold quick as hell for that price. This is one of the top of the line radars they make.:confused:

Just keep an eye out and know where the cops usually are.

x2. I learned where all the cops post up around our city, but here lately it seems like they hired 200 more. :eyebrow: But they've always been bad. If your out driving at 2:30 in the morning your getting pulled over, and they will find an excuse. :laugh: I got pulled over one morning at 3 something leaving my sisters, the officer followed me about ten miles, stopped me, said I didn't use a turn signal which I did, and then asked to search my car. :suicide:

For the record, no I didn't let him search, and I had a verbal talk with the cheif Smith the next day. :laugh:

But anyway I mainly use it because I take the highway to work. 30 miles, also do allot of traveling. These things pick up dps like crazy and leave them wondering. :naughty: I was cruising along about 90 down the interstate in the night time 65 one night going out of state, picked up a ka band. I swear I got up the road about over a mile, and he was sitting over a hill. :laugh:

A "verbal" talk, as compared to?

I haven't had a ticket since a week after I got my liscense. Just pay attention, and think how they think, and you'll see their hiding spots even if they're not in them at the moment.

I caught one coming back from a party this morning, posted up around the corner from the bridge. Radar went off, got around the bridge and he was sitting there. I was laughing my *** off. :p

The best radar detector you can buy is a Valentine 1. I've had mine for 6 years. You never have to buy a new one. Just send it in for an update about every 2-3 years and its great. It has arrows to tell you where the police are, and when you've passed them, along with detector cells on the front and back.

BTW, haven't had a ticket since I bought it. Although, there is nothing you can do against laser. Once they hit you there's no hope.

Oh, and....

"ludicrous speed....GO!"

Yeah valentine 1 wins hands down. I've had the valentine 1 and the x50. I used the x50 for a few months, then decided to try out the v1. The v1 is far better at detecting radar over a hill/around a corner than the x50. It also gives far better protection against instant-on by detecting it from the cars in front of me. That's something my x50 never did -- it never gave me a warning when the cars in front of me were being hit with I/O.

As far as jammers go, radar jammers are illegal in the U.S -- it's a felony if you're caught with one that actually works. Anything that's being marketed as a radar jammer in the U.S (Rocky Mountain Radar for example) is really just an expensive paper weight.

However, laser jammers are not illegal in most states, as far as I know there's only 9 states with a law against them. It's true they aren't 100% effective, but if they're set up properly they can help out in some situations. The "laser interceptor" was found to be 96% effective in this test (http://guysoflidar.com/march-2007/laser-jammer-test.html) against most of the laser guns used in the USA.

Buying a radar detector is like buying anything else -- you get what you pay for. You can't go wrong with either the passport x50 or the v1, but IMO the V1 offers much better detection than the x50 ever did for me. If you decide to go with the V1, you can call them and ask for a refurb unit, and they'll give you 10% off.

If you want more information, go to http://radardetector.net/. There's a lot of helpful info there.

You're thinking of radar and not laser..

Radar does cause problems more frequently. Alot of the emergency light toggles work off of a laser signal.
