Fire up JBV1 in offline mode and pair it with your TMG. Then you don't need to hear the alert, Just check JBV1's alert log later.

Since I don't run my V1 anymore, I didn't think of that! Thanks @OBeerWANKenobi , that's a damn good idea!

Nice save and great to see Tmg jamming...cant always tell from a video but I dont think I would have seen him either, it would have been too late...

lol i would have been all excited, throwing monkey poop all around, and forgot all about the jammer... lol we were just talking about that too @Kennyc56 you pig finder
I've been getting smacked in the mouth with 35.5 I/O shots for more years than I will admit, but the first real world laser encounter, in Va. no less is damn sure a pucker up moment! Just think of all the fun we would have had if it didn't go well and he would have stopped me for a little chat! He would have got me for the jammers, my R1, and my Redline-O all running full blast! That would have sucked!

You could also consider changing the Laser tone to something mellow that doesn't interfere with the TMG alert but still allows you to confirm that the R is receiving it.

My R1 is not really as loud as it seems in the video. It's mounted up above my rear view mirror and my dash cam is mounted to my mirror so it's speaker is blaring right at my dash cam! My TMG CPU is hidden in my console so the dash cam has a harder time "hearing" it.

In front of you but behind a Rabbit
.
Good Save!

Wonder if it was a lazy LEO? Was it just me or was they 10 times more traffic coming the opposite direction? No body passed you and you only caught up to one vehicle!

All good questions! My biggest question however is how in the hell did my R1 pick it up unless he was a horrible shot! It's in the very top of my windshield above my mirror!

Most likely so. Yeah, he was trying to get you obviously but I would call it more like sluggish swinging of the gun. If even your high installed R1 picked it up, what should we say... My R1 has never picked up laser danger at least in the visible vicinity, other than one time when it alerted unexpectedly and I saw nothing but a police car some 100-200m later ahead. Congrats for this very first save! Awesome job by your laser jammer. :) I'll have to deliver myself one of this front TMG systems next year with the kind help by a friend of mine.

I watched the video on a larger screen and here is how I think it went down...

Roscoe P Coltrane was actively shooting the car in front of you just as you were pulling out to get around that egg timer. He might not have even seen you behind the car that was in front of you and even if he did you were not his concern as he was focused on the lead target.

Just as you pull out to pass the TMG alerts, getting a reflective sniff. I don't think there was time for the Roscoe to predict your move and be set to shoot. Once you made the move and came into view it took both Roscoe and his dog Flash by surprise! Between the visions of cuffin' and stuffin' and the hounds howl from the excitement of nabbing a "Dipstick" :pervert:, he wildly and shakily panned the lidar gun over to your car causing your R1 to alert. A good normal closer shot like that would have left the R1 silent IMO.

Without the TMG Roscoe would have been in hot pursuit if you were over his threshold, the R1 would probably just given you a notice to pull over. Of course I would like to believe that without the TMG you might have been relying on more clues like the brake lights from the guy in front of you! :p

Good Save. :thumbsup:

That's pretty much the same thing I think happened! Either way, I'll damn sure take it! It's not hard at all to scrub 15 off compared to the 30+ I've been practicing when @VariableWave is the one behind the gun!

I did see his brake lights, otherwise I would have dropped back 2 gears and blew by him! I didn't speed up at all, just left my cruise on at 70. I still was thinking he was trying to let me know about a cop with radar however and I need to start thinking more about laser as well!

They have have encountered more PL4 by State and cities, and PL3 by Counties. Some areas do have Stalker, like VaBeach which encountered one by MC of VB.

Yeah, I hear ya. There are places I back off too...because I know the traps. And coming home was LLH hell, so I just tried my best at a wimpy +10, if I could even do that. Just not enough open space. Not safe.

But it's a good feeling to have "protection", especially when you get saved.

Rock on!

Come to Texas. They won't throw your ass in jail most likely. There is a video on YouTube of guy in GTR getting busted for 143 mph by laser. He pulled over immediately and just got a real expensive ticket!

So, Jane and I were on our way home from Pa. after seeing Jason Bonham in concert. We were just a little north of the Chesapeake Bay bridge Tunnel when the car ahead of me tried to warn me of the upcoming doom by tapping his brake lights. As soon as I eased into the other lane, the cop hit me with laser and my TMG's jammed him on auto sleep mode! Since this was my first real world hit, I got caught off guard and I didn't catch what gun he shot me with, and it didn't help that my R1 decided to be a hero and pick it up as well and blast out it's laser alert and override my TMG announcing the gun!
