    Ok so I am wondering if I am jamming the right direction here.

    Approaching a Poliscan which is targeting the rear of the car - typical 45 degree (odd) angle from the rear so it scans/detects your speed as you pass the unit.

    What has happened a few times in traffic is that my 4-head ALP (2 front / 2 rear) goes off before I go past it (it cannot be targeting my car as I am behind the unit) - the APL must have picked up the laser bouncing off the car in front (don't know). The alert is "Poliscan front" - but the laser is aimed at my car from the rear.

    NOTE: YES - the sensors are configured correctly and the alerts are correct - the front sensors state front and the rear state rear - I have tested this with my own laser tester and am 100% certain of the configuration.

    In this instance that the front sensors picked it up (somehow) does it mean:
    1. only the front are sending jamming pulses or
    2. all four sensors are sending jamming pulses?

    I'd like to know as its happened a few times and I would like to know if I am protected by my rear-facing sensors jamming the laser, which obviously are the only ones that have any chance of jamming the unit.

    It's just catching reflections off the car in front of you before you're the target. It will say "Poliscan, ahead!" while the red LED flickers, but that should quickly flip to yellow when you're the target. After JTK it should say "Poliscan, behind!". I've never seen a parking sensor as sensitive as the ALP, it will alert to being shot like 8 feet off the car. It's really good at early alerts

    X2, As long as OP verified his sensors are in the correct ports then he detected a reflection off of a vehicle. Poliscan operates different than any other gun and when hit with Poliscan both the Front & Rear sensors will defend.
