    Nope. Why would someone want to test something that doesn't work? If you have them and haven't installed them yet, I'll try to do a test in a couple of weeks.

    I don't have them saw them installed on FB from AVI Boston. They said newest jammers, sort of look like LI's . AVI blocked me on FB from comments because I asked why they use K40's.

    Yes, I recently Tested a K40 "RL360i + g5 Diffusers" (Dual)...it was IPT against several Lidars.

    The install was poorly done, b/c while they both appeared level to my visual inspection each of the 2 Transponders followed the curvature of the new Corvette & were "pitched" outward by ~10 degrees each. The Owner will be re-visiting the Installer & I was asked for a re-Test yesterday in the near future.

    Quote from K40 webpage:

    "...each Laser Diffuser g5 contains five infrared laser detection diodes, 10 powerful laser jamming diodes, and a fly-eye lens for enhanced laser gun detection and protection."

    These are different I believe. Optix series. Not even on K40 site yet.

    Chances are, someone will buy them and then end up here when they don't work and are doing their homework. I'm guessing someone here will get a chance to test them sooner or later.

    I took a look at the Optix install on the Silver 911s Turbo & noticed the large receiving 'bubble' lens (I'll assume K40 stayed w/ 5 Opto photodiodes) but was surprised to see a 2nd smaller 'bubble' which might indicate they've switched over to a single (real) Laser Diode instead of the Legacy bank of several IR LEDs. The BIG question to be answered is how good is the jamming algorithm & can it handle Boston PD's Dragon Lidars !

    That what I was saying. AVI Boston uses ALP as well if requested. I am sure they have a deal with K40. They do have the bubble. I am curious how well they perform.

    I only know of 1 recently installed in AK, that's a lil longer drive than I'm willing to do to Test one.

    They will not jam the newer guns. I spoke with the person who makes them for K40.

    Newer meaning VPR or something else? Also, are they similar to any other jammer we've seen?

    Same as G5's with Diodes instead of LED's so they shrunk the size down a bit but guns not supported by G5 are not supported by their new version.

    why make a new jammer that doesn't cover all guns, it would be nice to see some additional options on the market.

    Is it ALP patents that are keeping them from being able to jam the new guns?

    ALP does not operate the same as older Jammers and yes AntiLaser has worldwide patents to prevent others from copying their methods. I guess this was a refresh to get their sensors smaller because they were really way too large.

    They should have focused on getting them to work, who cares how big they are when they don't jam - I had quarters on the front of my car and now I can put pennies, they are smaller and might jam about as well.

    RALETC tested them and yeah they can jam the Stalker XLR and some of the older and more primitive Laser Ally guns, but not the newer and more difficult variants, so it's a step in the right direction.

    It may not be an ALP, but it does look like an improvement over their previous gen G5's.

    Anyone know the retail price on these?

    Very glad to hear at least they are doing something now. The previous gen was a complete fraud on laser jamming.
