I'm confused by what you actually did. What is the difference between what you did, and using a ordinary on/off switch (other than your switch was magnetic)? How did they know that you had a jammer if you turned it off?

Stealth Enthusiast,

I believe Streaker added an additional "kill-switch", in effect, so the normal power-up procedures would fail when the additional switch was engaged to give the appearance that the unit was not functioning under any circumstance.

Cool

OK thanks for clearing that up. I personally would not depend on such an archaic kill switch, as it would be too easy for the LEO to trace down and override, plus once it was found it would surely piss the LEO off even more. The idea of adding an additional switch is good, but using a conventional switch is not. They should use what is called an 'invisible' switch where you need to touch something inside the car that's grounded for the switch to work. It's purely electronic and not mechanical. Even if the LEO was looking right at it they would not know it was a 'switch'. Back in the day these were used for engine kill switches until the company sold the rights just before they went out of business. Since LEO's read forums like this people need to be more prudent in how they protect themselves. If the original poster could list the name of the road they were on when they were pulled over, that might also help others living in that area.

Hi Stealth

The road wouldn't help as it is in South Africa.

The reason I went for the magnetic switch is because magnetism travels through plastic, thereby, too actually find the switch the car interior has to be stripped. How many coppers carry toolboxes with them for that. Also, may he just randomly strip your car next to the road without a warrent?

Unless he has a magnet and knows exactly where to put it, jammer remains "broken". You are correct, I didn't add a mechanical switch, purely because it could easily be found and actuated. Will take pics of the switch and fitting tomorrow and post it so as to explain the idea better.
