Has anyone installed a blinger M25/M45 on a CTS-V? I am looking for a good location and wondering where others may have located? trying to keep as concealed as possible

Based on the video and other information obtained from the Internet, it appears that the Blinder only works on LASER speed devices - not RADAR. I have received very, very few warnings concerning LASER speed detectors.

Radar jammers are illegal. Laser (LIDAR) jammers/shifters are not (State depending). This device is to be used in connection with a radar/laser detector. Your detector will let you know you are being targeted and the jammer will not allow your speed to be registered. You will have plenty of time to slow your speed.

I have one on my corvette and works awesome, but the corvette has a bigger lip on the front "grill" the v doesn't. I don't want it to stick out. had some comments from local PD when they notice the jammer heads when I'm parked at local starbucks.

and the fog lamp area is tight....

I don't have a RADAR jammer or a LASER jammer. I do have a RADAR/LASER detector. If anyone wants to spend that kind of money for something they might encounter once every few years, be my guest.

In Canada, radar detectors/jammers are illegal in all but 2 provinces...iirc. Laser Jammers are legal in most provinces, tho, iirc.

Unless your running the Valentine One which is immune to radar detector detectors. Or leave it in the window where the Ontario police can see it. No, officer it was not plugged in. :)

There are plenty of Lasers in use in Michigan. I do not have a blocker but have gotten pulled by laser before. All my detector did was let me know I was about to get pulled. With this new V and the fact that so far I have consistently found myself driving faster than I used to, I am considering an upgrade in detection/avoidance.

Not sure they work like that in the real world. I have a V1 and Phaser jammer. Still got a
ticket on the Penn Turnpike. The trooper looked at all the stuff in my car and just laughed.

The very best is a CB radio, monitering channel 19.

The phazer doesn't actually jam radar as you need a license to transmit radio waves. It confuses the radar gun computer that takes multiple readings for a locked on speed. The newer radar along with a smart user who knows how to shut off the computer processing averaged locked speed will be able to show actual dopler reading. Along with visually seeing you passing other cars for reference your toast. The Phazer can buy you time and can have the rookies scratching their head giving you a double tap thinking their unit is not work correctly. Don't trust the laser on it. %)

How much were you over and at what speed?

He clocked me at 86 in 65. I was alone in the middle lane minding my own business. I can not vouch for his accuracy as I was
on my way to have my car tuned and the speedo set as I just changed rear ends. He was pretty cool, and let me try out
his laser gun on the traffic as he wrote my ticket. I went back and sat in his cruiser with him so he could process my credit
card and we chatted about detectors and jammers. I was too far over to get the ticket paid by Phazer under their guarantee.
