what about the new detectors with "Laser Jammers"? Are these effective or more marketing then function?
Thinking of the physics, lasers are made of coherent light. As stated in https://radartest.com/how_laser_jammers_work.asp - "To defeat a laser the front laser jammers must protect the headlights, license plate and surrounding reflective surfaces. In the rear, the license plate and tail lights are the primary targets. The center high-mounted stop light, backup lights and vertical, reflective surfaces are also targets. Even a tailgate-mounted spare tire/wheel assembly is fair game; we've targeted a Jeep Wrangler's aluminum spare wheel from 2,500 feet away. "

So you would need a system that could detect laser energy at all of those locations and transmit a signal from those locations. Not simple or cheap.

I just picked up my sprinter and sold my M4. One of the first things I wanted to do is see if I can move part of my blendmount https://blendmount.com/quick_fit_guide (they consist of a mirror and a detector mount) over to the sprinter (lower portion that attaches to my Escort - magnetic mount radar detector). On the blendmount website, they list a kit for a 19-20 sprinter, however, the picture of the mirror does not match mine. For the past couple of days, I have been working with blendmount to see if they have a mirror clamp that will work. I took a bunch of pictures and caliper measurements and they have now recommended a mount that should hopefully work. It is being shipped to me today, however, I will be out of town for a couple of weeks, so I won't have a chance to test fit it. I plan on tapping power using a mirror tap.
Any luck with the mirror tap?
