The Laser Interceptor is a bit more obvious as the diodes must be placed in plain view in order for them to be effective. However, they serve a dual purpose in that they function as a parking sensor as well. If anyone asks me about them, they are simply placed in parking sensor mode and all is well. A state trooper once asked me if my front-mounted Laser Interceptor diode was a radar detector but I simply told him the truth and said it wasn't.
It's possible to articulate the parking sensor function by powering the unit on and placing your hand over the sensors, if you feel the need to.
I tested the unit with seven different LIDAR guns, including the Kustom Pro Laser II and III, both heavily used by local law enforcement, and they gave a jam-to-gun every time.
