If you want to update your Laser Interceptor laser jammer system, you’re in luck! The Laser Interceptor provides free updates to its users via the Laser Interceptor Update Page.
The software is free, but you do need to have a PC running Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 and a USB to Serial Cable.
Not just ANY USB to Serial Cable will work. The USB cable must be able to interface cleanly with the LI’s serial port and it must be able to be recognized by your computer. Many cables have screws that will impede the interface with the LI CPU, lack an on-board circuit, or do not have capable drivers to ‘talk’ to the LI CPU.
The following cables are verified to work with the listed Operating Systems – just click the link and you will be taken to Amazon.com where you can check out the cable details and purchase them as well.Any of these problems will mean that you will not be able to update your LI software.

What do I do once I have my cable?
Be sure to install any drivers that may come with your cables! First, plug just your cable into you computer – Windows may automatically find drivers for your cable. If it does not, check to see if the cable came with a CD that contains the drivers. Windows 8 Cable Drivers can be found here.
What if I have a Mac?
If you have a Mac, you are not out of luck! You just need to install Windows Virtualization software so that you can run one of the Windows versions above on your Mac. Newer Macs come with Boot Camp software pre-installed, so check that option first. If that is not an option for you, VMWare Fusion is a very popular product that will allow you to run Windows on your Mac without even shutting the computer down.

There seem to be a lot of questions, uncertainty, and misinformation surrounding radar detectors and laser jammers. As much as we wish that they were, radar detectors and laser jammers are not a license to speed or to drive recklessly. They don’t detect every police office in a five mile radius and they don’t make you invisible! They are merely tools that you can use to avoid speed detection, or to actively inhibit, speed detection by law enforcement officers.
What are laser jammers? In the most simple terms, laser jammers are electronic devices that are designed to prevent police using a laser gun, also known as a LIDAR gun, from getting a speed reading on a car.
All laser jammers are laser detectors, but not all laser detectors are laser jammers!
Most modern radar detectors also act as laser detectors. However, by the time the radar/laser detector has alerted to laser, the police officer already has your speed. That is, unless you have a laser jammer!
It’s important to know the difference between radar speed detection devices and laser speed detection devices. While some people do not know the difference, and some use the terms interchangeable, the two are very different. While radar guns and radar dashboard-mounted units measure a vehicle’s speed using radio waves, laser guns track a vehicle and measure its speed using light pulses.
RADAR units, which stands for RAdio Detection And Ranging, sends out radio waves, which bounce off of a car. The radar unit measures key differences in the returning radio waves to calculate the speed of the car. I could get into more detail about how radar works, but the main purpose of this post is to talk about laser jammers.

LIDAR unites, which stands for LIght Detection And Ranging, emits brief pulses of invisible infrared light. These light pulses do not measure the vehicle’s speed! The light pulses actually measure the vehicle’s distance, from which it can calculate its speed. This may sound complicated, but give it five minutes and I’ll have you explaining it to others like an expert!
