Can you tell me how this stealth radar detector works?

I am doing some electrical work on my father in law's 996 and it has this radar detector installed.

There is a dial under the dash but I can't find a display anywhere. Any idea how this thing works? I can't find a manufacturer's name anywhere.

Thank you for the replies. I'll see if I can find the control box and determine if it's connected.

Jam this:
Years back, I knew of a fellow getting pulled over for doing 55 in a 30mph zone. Laughed when mentioned he forgot to flip a transmitter switch down to 30.

My guess its all useless today. Hard to beat the speed of light laser or VASCAR. Busted on that last one during night and wasn't attentative to a scanner.

Probably is illegal but I remember when the car was purchased it was described as a radar detector. It is most likely useless today.


The jammer sensors look different on the website. I'll see what else is in the system. It's never made a peep in 4 years so maybe it's disconnected.

I don't think they necessarily are. If they are, it's probably a local law about trying to avoid tickets.

Radar jammers are very illegal because they are radio waves which is governed by the FCC, so it's a federal law.

Laser jammers are just light, so no federal law about it.

The deal with laser jammers, at least the one's that I've seen, is that you have a detector and jammer. It only jams when you get hit with the laser, and it warns you so you can hit your brakes and then turn the thing off. From what I understand, getting a good read with a laser is not always easy, so if they try once and get nothing, and then try again and get something, and you should be good.

At least, I think I remember reading something like that. I think the Blinder Extreme is a fairly common brand of jammer.

simple google search:

Because these jammers focus on blocking light emitted from laser guns, and not radio waves from radar guns, US federal laws prohibiting the use of radar jammers do not apply to these devices. While the U.S. Federal Communications Commission regulates transmission of radio waves, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates light emissions.[4] However, several states have passed laws that specifically prohibit the use of laser jammers, including: Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah. The legality of laser jammers in Nebraska and Washington, D.C. is disputed.[5]
living in MN, the rule has always been you can receive anything (radar or laser), but you cannot transmit anything (jam).

have not gotten a speeding ticket since i starting running a V1. works great if you are smart about it.
