    Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    Does anyone have any pics of a clean install of a laser jammer (bel rx75 or escort sr7) and where they mounted the hardware. I found a V on Ebay with a pretty ugly install (no offense, if the owner is a member here)

    I live in an area where there is laser everywhere and they will give you a ticket for going even 5mph over the limit...and the tickets are $175!

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    yeha, that car has some oddities.. the speaker/ door install is terrible (again, no offense if you are here), and the backup camera is just out there... wow..

    I do like the way the screen was molded into the center stack. A bit low for practical viewing (and does the shifter hit it), but not soo bad...

    Where did you see a jammer? Am I missing something? I see the passport in the cluster (and there was someone recently who installed a V1 remote display in the cluster pod), but I dont see a jammer (unelss I am blind)...

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    The best laser jammer is The Blinder. It works -well. The link below shows field tests. I have mine installed so that the alarm horn is below the steering column and is highly audible. The alarm light is in an air vent and the on/ off switch is in the ashtray. Unlike the car in the link, my transmitters are mounted behind the upper grill and cannot be seen, I have researched this extensively and this is not only the best solution but also the most stealthy.

    Has anyone tried the VEIL product on their V?

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    I agree...that V has some rather strange upgrades. The jammers are the two black transmitters on either side of the lower grill by the fog lights...way too obvious

    Vdrenaline: Do you have any pics of the location of your transmitters? Doesn't the grill block most of the signal that the shifter emits? Thanks for the link to jammersstore...but I would never buy off a place that sells rocky mountain products!!!

    I have the Escort SR7 installed with the lidar sensors. One of the best radar detectors I have ever owned. Display mounted to the left of the sunroof control and lidar/laser sensors mounted at the top of the inside of the grill. Everything is well hidden. Check the pics.

    The black bars on the ebay car are the sr7 detectors, not jammers right? I checked and saw no jammer...

    Ok, this could be like asking if you believe in the boogie man, but has anyone had a jammer work for them or have experience (first hand, not lab tests). I had a radar jammer once that didnt, so I just want to get someone's experience here... Will a jammer interfere with the V1?

    I gotta hand it to the guy for being thorough...very impressive from that perspective.

    Radar jammers are illegal. Detecting is okay, but not jamming. The FCC doesn't look to fondly on things like that.

    "Illegial"is such a harsh way of putting it. Perhaps "potentially interfering with the intent of the municipality to generate revenue" would be accurate - see this way it doesn't sound so bad.

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    its a lidar jammer, not radar. Lidar jamming is legal....and many of the new Infinitys have active lidar in their grills for cruise control separation. Radar jamming is very illegal in all 50 states.

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    I just read somewhere that any jamming of police signals (as regulated by the FCC) is a felony... I did some research after this thread came about. Its illegal to jam radar and laser in all 50 states from what I read (I read quickly)

    Laser is NOT regulated by the FCC. It's regulated by the FDA...go figure.

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    You can jam laser and be legal, but not actual radar. I have heard nothing but good things with the Blinder M-20, was thinking about getting one for the bike and car. Considering I just got a ticket last time home in Houston, being hit by laser. At least I can get it taken care of, just have to show to court, but that is a pain in the A$$. Either way I am looking into getting the new bel RX 65 and the blinder for both vehicles.

    Re: Radar/laser detector/jammer install

    According to MotorTrend...

    Radar/laser detectors are legal for use in all states except Virginia and Washington, D.C. Their use is prohibited on U.S. military reservations, as well. Commercial trucks are prohibited from using any radar/laser detector. Possession and use of a radar jamming device is prohibited nationwide. Radar jamming devices, whether passive or active, are regulated by the FCC and they do not issue licenses for such devices.

    There are no federal laws restricting the use of laser jammers as lasers are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. However, some states may regulate their use. The use of laser jammers is currently prohibited and/or restricted in California, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Utah. Check your local laws before installing any laser shifting/blocking/jamming device.
