: I have done a fair amount of searching on the net on this topic. Have found some interesting stuff. There are a lot of laser jammers sold, but only a few actually work. Independant tests show that those that work, work well.
: The two that are listed as functional are the Blinder (always on), and the Lidatek Laser Echo, which detects and pulses.
: The old model Blinder was the M6, I believe. They tested the new model M10 as much better. I am uncomfortabel with a unit such as the blinder that has no alarm. Though, I suppose, since the cop has to be right on the highway to track you, that isn't so bad.
: They are using laser a lot where I live, so I am considering this too.
: : I went to get a new cell phone at my local audio place, you know the kind, where the rice boys hang. Any way I saw this product called Blinders. It came with two units rear and front and it wires into a switched power source and stays on.
: : It supposedly inteferes with laser type speed acquiring devices. It's made in Europe, Scandinavia I think. The instructions said to test, look through a cam corder view finder to see if the units are emitting light.
: : Snake oil or what?
