    I just don't like suction cups. The tell-tale sign of a car that may be speeding is a pair of suction cups on the front windshield.

    I tried it high up, but I didn't get as good of rear detection, the rear visibility of the CR-Z leaves something to be desired. The location I'm using now is the result of a buddy of mine with his radar car and lidar gun doing several dozen shots at me, and it's the best I could do. It's also very easy to see while driving, I don't have to move my eyes at all. Since it's harder to see (no suction cup marks on the windscreen,) I feel less exposed when parking on the street in the city for smash and grab burglars.

    Every car is different, just like every driver. I just hate to have things on my windscreen because it makes it tougher to clean, heh.

    ah i see. i always take my v1 down when im parking anywhere other than my house and my work (where i can see my car from my desk). invest in a set of LI's if you havent already, a v1 wont save u from lidar, but u already know that haha

    That setup looks good, similar idea to mine. I might move my easypass similar to yours.

    I'm getting a LI kit before the rally in August.

    Yeah, I came up with the idea after looking at the "blend mount" but I didn't like how it cost $60. I had something similar on a civic a few years ago with zip ties, but this looks a lot better. I wanted to make it quickly and cheaply, and I think this fits the bill. I spent a total of $12 on my mount, only because I had to buy hardware and bbq paint too. Next time I build one I'll be using a matte epoxy.

    I've been looking at LI, but I don't know if I really want to sink money into active electronic countermeasures. A few of my LE buddies say that if their gun reads "JAM" they're going to pursue. If I'm in a high-risk scenario, I drive with a police scanner running, and an iPhone with Trapster on. I guess I'll check out the LI threads a little bit more closely.

    Let's think this through.

    A police scanner is highly unlikely to work. You'll rarely have a LEO say over the scanner in plainspeak "I'm going to shoot LIDAR at mile marker 11.2 on 95-S". You usually won't hear any chatter until after they've already pulled someone over.

    Trapster will only work IF and only IF one of the cars ahead of you already got shot at and tagged it on Trapster. You're basically relying on other people to voluntarily warn you.

    As far as I know, most guns don't read jam from an LI, except some of the newest models. Look up some LI videos on YouTube; to the unsuspecting LEO, it just looks like it takes an extra second or two to get a reading (if you slow down and shut it off like you're supposed to).

    While Trapster and a police scanner are nice to have, they're below an LI on the list of effectiveness.

    so im assuming im going to have to sent the V1 out. anyone have this happen

    past few months seem to get worse, normally around my town it doesnt light up, now in Logic mode itll show k band at a strength of 1 or 2 hmmmm?

    every so often itll go off for Laser again in Logic mode when normally it wont???

    and iv had it in the same spot since i got it, nothing has changed whatso ever. i know V1 has a new update out for mine but its nothing i really need. so idk im just going to sent it to them at somepoint just curious to see if anyone has had this issue.

    I have to agree with this. I ran trapster for a couple weeks to try it, and i'd say that only 5% of the things marked were real, and there were several speed traps that weren't marked. Since then i haven't even had the app installed.

    Escort's version of it seems interesting. anytime a real threat is registered on the detector it updates their apps database. Much more reliable than assuming other people will get it right.

    Yeah, I just don't want to drop one large into a permanent system that's illegal to even posses any time I roll onto a military base -- at some point I'll buy it though, heh. I can't justify it to myself because most of the traps and cops in the PA/MD/WV/VA area are still radar.

    Are they really illegal on military bases? I know they are illegal in a handful of states. They all have off switches though, so you can disable the system whenever you need to.

    i want the 9500ci or whatever the escort, couldnt justify the cost and too lazy to do the install right now. Maybe down the line ill put on in

    So just to update now that i've had the 9500ix for a while. I love it. It's learned 95% of all false signals around where i live at this point, which is fantastic. It picks up on real signals from crazy far away too. I've had a few pick up from over a mile away around a bend on the highway. And one of my biggest concerns is gone. I was worried that since the passport doesn't have a rear facing detector (the one it has is laser only) it would be lacking in detection, but it's awesome at grabbing signals behind you for a while too. The range isn't as great, but i'll go by cops and it will keep screaming at me for a good distance after i've passed them. I just need to find some spare time to finally finish the hard wire install.
