Unlikely. Jammers aren't transmitting until they detect a Police Lidar threat. Until they're triggered, they're just scanning for threats, not transmitting.

I get several a day and when on the highway. It seems to stay on when certain cars stay nearby. In Connecticut we don't have traffic cams or red light cams so it can't be that.

I get laser alerts all the time driving in the city with my Redline EX. It's probably the best Mazda detector on the market. Seems every Mazda now comes with laser collision avoidance. Pretty much to the point that I ignore laser hits when city driving. Would disable laser, except it has proven useful for freeway driving. LEO's in Ohio all have their laser guns out for freeway stops this time of year.

It would be nice if Escort could configure one or two buttons for a quick disable of laser when driving in the city. Just a pain to toggle through the menu to switch laser on and off.

Unlike a radar detector, Jammers do NOt scan for threats and ONLY transmit when hit with a threat.


My EX falses a LOT on lidar as well.
