Question How do you test to see if your detector picks up laser?

Had a question from a customer about how do you check to see if your Radar Detector is detecting Laser?

I figured that if anyone would know how to do it the distinguished members of this panel would know.

There's no failsafe method short of using a police laser. But there are a few shortcuts, if you've got some luck.

Most big-city airports now have laser-based wind shear warning systems. They'll set off laser detectors a mile or more away. Many newer vehicles with sat nav systems will cause laser detectors to false uncontrollably when held anywhere in the vicinity, and not necessarily in front of the nav screen itself. Most new Audi, Infiniti and Nissan models with sat navs will cause this.

And Lexus LS430s with ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) systems use a laser to measure following distance. They'll also cause uncontrollable falses.

Valentine Ones frequently false on laser in reaction to neon lights and to LED taillights in cars close ahead.

Default Another way

Just pick up your TV remote control. A two sensor remote works really good. Point it at your radar detector from about 5-10 feet away. If you have a quality radar detector it will alert to laser.
