    I was wondering what kind of lasers will set it off? And where the laser receiver is located on it?

    I put a small laser around it. And nothing happened...

    It needs to be a special laser like the ones in lidar guns. They're on an infrared spectrum. 904nm wavelength with different pulse patterns. A regular laser pointer won't set it off.

    The sensor is located either behind the front panel behind the little circular indent or on top where the little clear nub is on the left

    Another tip, don't count on it to save you from a laser trap, 9/10 your already done for. You would need laser jammers to help beat that beast.

    No radar detector laser alert is fast enough to beat police laser, period. Its a great alert to give you a heads up you will suddenly get cop on the road to instruct you to pull over so when you get a laser alert get ready to hit the brakes and pull over hahahahaha
