From what I've read on several different jammers, they have a mute button to turn off sound and a power switch to turn off the jammer. Some offer timed jam (some of them with programmable jam times). None of them seem to offer a 'Dark' or 'No Jam' button/option.
So why would such a button/option be required?
Essentially, one cannot be 100% sure that the lidar gun was jammed until driver was ready for speed lock. To be 100% sure, one would either have to ask the LEO or have some other way of confirmation. Not just a 'best guess' or 'almost sure'. To me, 100% confirmation is that the LEO stops shooting. Why? Because it's a natural tendency to 'complete the task' for most of us and the LEOs task at that moment is to acquire the speed lock - especially when it's delayed more than normal.
Without this confirmation, one has to rely on JTG performance of your setup against all guns (one can only measure that for previous to current generation lidar guns, one is always susceptible to newer models and/or firmware revs). Measuring our own individual setup against some lidar guns may be possible for some; even this is just a snapshot in time.
Hence I feel that it will be good to have a 'No Jam' button that I turns off the jamming leds/diodes but keeps the detector sensors receiving and alerting. This way one gets the confirmation one needs that the LEO has stopped shooting.
Due to lack of this feature, most rely on either timed jame or the 'Off' switch on the jammer AND then the laser alert from the RD stopping a few seconds after jamming is off. However, the RD (unless it's extremely good with laser like the V1) is not reliable for close range shots and usually useless for rear shots.
This feature should be quite simple to implement. I suppose they could even double duty the mute switch/button to 'no jam' if they wish to contain costs.
What do you guys think?
