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.
