    Default For those in snowy climates...



    Keep your transponders clean! I noticed mine this morning. It should have been kind of a 'duh' thing considering my car is covered in salt.

    I'll be using my laser tester before cleaning and after cleaning to see how much of a detection difference it makes. I'm sure it'll be profound.

    Better yet, is it possible to slow down if you get an alert?

    well, when its snowing you cant really speed becuase its unsafe, and if you are, you wont be able to slow down for anything fast. wether it be a cop or a car in front of you. but once its not snowing and the highways are clear and dry again, then its just like normal again

    it'll be interesting to see how the transponders react when they have some salt on them... i bet it will cut the reception and jamming down a lot. please keep us posted synmoo

    Doesn't really matter if there is snow, in winter your car will look like that after a few days of driving, and that's when the weather is nice!

    Since they must receive & transmit light they will not work very good if at all.

    I had a customer call me tonight from Canada, all pissed off cause he got a laser ticket with a Blinder. Asked him the condition of his heads and he admitted that they were "cruddy" with salt and grime

    Roy, you think there would be a market if I could develop a system similar to the headlight washers on Saabs for lidar jammers? A little spritzer of washer fluid right on the face...
