Default Lidar/Laser-based Lane Departure Systems set off Laser Detectors,Laser Jammers

An increasing number of lidar-based lane departure or cruise control systems are now appearing on the highway.

Be aware of this, because if you are not prepared for it you may over-react to what otherwise appears like an instant-on close-range police laser encounter.

By acclimating yourself to these kinds of falses, you should better prepared to safely react when you do encounter such systems.

The LSID-enabled Whistles already have pre-filtered out many of these sources.

The two high-end remotes, as yet, appear to have the necessary filtering to prevent lidar/laser falses from these sources.

Being prepared for these sources of lidar/laser falses will serve you to be able to better be prepared for them in and when the time comes that you either pass or be passed by a vehicle equipped with such a system.

By being adequately prepared, it is my hope that you will be able to react in a more careful and less abrupt manner than otherwise, because it is very startling when it happens.

Don't over-react and potentially cause "challenges" to any potential surrounding drivers.

If you drive with a sensitive radar/laser detector or laser jammers, especially ones that are mounted externally, until such time the manufacturers filter these systems pulse-trains out of the alerting routines, you'd best be prepared for what can happen.

STH, I've been told by a fellow hobbyist on either RD.net or RR.net, the Escort/Bel products have enabled lock-out on LIDAR....

I was not sure that information was correct, given the "high priority alert" nature of LIDAR warnings - per Ka alerting on the Escort/Bel units, which do not allow lock-outs in that band, I also thought that a LIDAR warning would be, too.

But I was assured by that particular individual that, indeed, LIDAR lock-out was enabled.

Would you be so kind as to verify?

Also, I would assume that you're running the latest firmware for these units, correct?
