I don't see laser on the unit, so it looks like it's radar only. There's not much radar used here at this stage.

and if they are using laser they'll have a reading before you even get a chance to get on the brakes :wink:

Only thing for laser is a laser jammer, cops gun will come up with a error but you can be sure if that happens you will be stopped and the car searched... happened to a friend of mine, yet he didn't have a jammer , turns out it was a genuine error with the gun, but they pulled him over and spent 15 minutes searching for a jammer before conceding that it was a mistake :lol:
