Laser without warning, another car labeled. A laser alert is simply a feature of radar detectors that alerts the driver when it detects LIDAR. Once a LIDAR cannon is aimed at you, this is the only time your radar detector can issue a laser alert, which may be too late for you to act, since your speed has already been measured. A laser jammer is a device that returns a “no response” or cosine error when a police LIDAR gun is used to aim at a vehicle.
When the LIDAR gun shows this error, an officer will not know if a vehicle is equipped with a laser jammer or if it simply did not aim correctly at the vehicle. This allows drivers time to adjust their speed before a police officer can take another reading. The laser changers and radar detectors can work together when wired, but as long as the laser changers are mounted on the outside of the vehicle, a radar detector will remain inside the vehicle. Since the laser is such a thin beam, since the radar detector is installed on the windshield and is pointing towards the grill somewhere, the radar detector is too far away to see the beam.
To do this, your radar detector must be connected to your smartphone so that you can download and use the associated application of your detector, such as Cobra iRadar, Waze or Escort Live; likewise, GPS must be installed.
