    I have an older ALP laser jammer that has the 9 pin serial D connector on the side. Where do I find the software and latest update for it?

    Mine is a laserinterceptor.

    It currently has firmware 8.18. The firmware upload button in the communicator is grayed out so I can't upload version 8.2. Is there a trick?

    It just started falsely going off on occasion at random times. When it does it usually goes off several times in a row. I can't make out what it says after the alarm. Its is something like "Rigo". What is this?

    Its not too bad so I am just going to deal with it until it gets worse.

    How about updating the firmware? Why is the update button grayed out?

    I advise you get tested which even if working at peak would be defeated by several new guns

    Also i dont believe they distributing in the US anymore

    Your system offers protection against legacy guns but with intermittent sensor problems youre waiting on a ticket

    It hasn't failed me yet. It jams every gun the police use here and the police just got a bunch of new guns. I have a Blinder 905 that works perfectly too.

    When if fails I will replace it with a ALP but I am not ready yet.

    Few things first.
    Sounds like you have Riegl checked in your config and it is falsing.
    2ndly if upgrade is grey then your not connected to the unit.
    How are you connecting? What cable are you using. What comm port?
    When you connect do you see your existing firmware version and configuration?
    My LI's jam everything down here and are rock solid.

    Show that chart to the Corpus Christi motorcycle cop shooting a Stalker last weekend. I jammed his happy @ss
    With my out of date/lousy Laser Interceptor 8.9 running 8.20 :)
    He must not have gotten the memo.
    We are covered up in Stalker and LTi. Locals are not buying new guns.
    Back to helping this guy getting updated and fixed.

    Yeah I've read that and it is mainly why i remain happy/confident with my 8.20 LI's. Kicks Stalker/LTi butt. That is what we are up against here. I see the OP also is having success/confidence in his environment with his LI's. I dont carry Moose repellent either as we dont have any Moose down here.
    Back on track here in the LI section trying to help this fella.
    Again...if your update/upgrade field is gray then your not connected. Lets be sure you have the most recent communicator
    http://laserinterceptor.info/downloads.html
    We need to verify your cable/comm port etc as mentioned previously.

    I assume I am connected. I can load the settings from the device. I can change settings and upload them back to the device. The Voices and firmware update are both grayed out. I will try it again later today just to confirm.

    All I have seen here is Kustom Prolaser.

    I see that chart the ALP guy posted is for the 8.18 firmware. Does anyone have one for the 8.2 firmware?

    Yeah testing experience with 8.20 is in that thread the ALP guy posted last.
    Sounds like your doing it out of order friend.
    1. Download any uncompressed utility. WinRAR will give you this ability for example. 7zip is another one.
    2. Uncompress the RAR file. Inside there is a folder with 2 files - V.8.20.LI and V.8.20.S. Make a note where you put this folder.
    3. Connect your laptop to your LI.
    4. Click on the "Firmware Update" button. (Do NOT click on the "Connect"button!)
    5. A window will open asking you to select a file.
    6. Click on the folder containing the firmware files and click on open.
    7. A window will open prompting you to "Please connect and turn on or restart your Laser Interceptor device". If asked to, cycle the power switch off and on again, otherwise, the upload will then begin automatically.
    8. When the download is completed, a window will open indicating "uploadcomplete". Click on "OK"
    9. Once the upload completed window opens, disconnect the cable from yourCPU and turn the LI Off and On again.
    10. Turn the LI main power switch Off and On again.

    In 8.20 it still struggles with some XLR/XS versions and LTI specifically it had the same problems with PT the last few hundred feet of the run
