    Can't wait to see some video on this one. Is it possible to post photos comparing the LE head with the LI head?

    This should be good. Looking forward to seeing how a different diode system does comparatively.

    The more jammer options, the better.

    Great write up.

    The head, bracket & loom remind me of Antilaser & LPP, brings back memories. But much less money, you are right about things getting interesting if it performs well.

    Plus, with all of the diode based countermeasures out at affordable prices, LED jammrs will need to get much cheaper or become extinct.

    Looks very similar to the AL8 I have on my other car. Very interesting.

    This is more like the ALG9/RX I believe.

    I know we spoke about your old ALG8 briefly back in NJ, but I forgot the details. Remind me again of how it performed and how many heads you had?

    It is exactly like the ALG9/RX. The only difference is this model does not have the extra diode to act like a fog light. They only have that on European jammers because of the TRuCam. When you look at the car it looks like fog lights and hides the pulses of the gun from the camera so the cop can not see the jammer firing back.

    that is something I have thought about doing before on my 79TA. back in the 80's the fogs were big square monstrosities perfect place to hide jammers.

    making them look like fog lights is 100x better then parking sensors what LEO would question fog lights?

    Who installs laser jammers near the bottom of their car where normal fog lights are? I bet a Leo would take a second look at a car where the fog lights are shooting out from the front grille

    I doubt it. At least around here, there are plenty of trucks, Jeeps and other SUVs driving around with their fogs up high in the grill area or on the push bar/grill guard. Heck, even some sports cars have fogs in the grill now (new Mustang for example).

    I do appreciate the wiki article. Very good write up. I do have a question in regards to jamming heads per vehicle though.

    On my Dodge Neon, 1 LI. head in the front and 1 LI. head in the rear is good enough to provide protection. So does this system offer the sale of 2 heads only or do you have to now by 4 heads?

    Also how do you go about buying jammer heads now days? If 1 head works per front/rear then why would one buy a quad system when it would only be overkill and more costly.

    Each vehicle and color of vehicle would be different to the jamming world, so are jammer companies offering the same pricing if you bought 2 heads and needed to add 2 more equaling a quad priced system?

    It looks like this sticky/thread has not been active for years. What's the current day thought on the Laser Elite? Link

    Save your $$$..........................(and get something else that works well here and has regular firmware updates for the toughest of parking situations).....................Plus that video on their site is almost 5 years old (can you say outdated).........

    Tom [MENTION=3989]BestRadarDetectors[/MENTION] can tell you all about it!

    I was e-mailing back and forth with the sales rep and he said that the LE is effective against all LIDAR guns (at least those in So Cal) and has regular firmware updates. Why do you say they don't work well here or that they don't have regular firmware updates?

    Found this old review.
    http://www.momspaghetti.ytmnd.com/laserelitejammertest.htm


    It's not a matter of saving my money to buy something more expensive. I have the money. It's that I don't want to (nor would I get the approval from the Mrs.!) to spend it on a laser jammer. I can't justify spending $600-$1000 x the three vehicles I have. I've had two speeding tickets in 24 years of driving. If I am going to spend $3000 to avoid a $300 fine I receive every 12 years on average, it would pencil out better to take the fines! Thus, I am looking for something at least 90%+ effective for $300 or less. Any advice?

    Home Page:
    They are lying and will take your money and run. The Laser Elite was a clone of AL's old product from several years ago. They illegally cloned the product and used AL's IP and AL's firmware updates. Anti Laser moved on to the AL Priority in 2013 and to prevent these scammers from cloning and stealing their IP they now encrypt firmware to prevent these low life's from stealing their work.
