      Hey Vortex... just saw your video about the wreck. I'm sorry to hear it but glad everyone is okay. The PTSD symptoms you're describing will pass with time, but are certainly nothing to ignore. Even if it seems minor and "not that bad," it can be surprising what you take home from that experience. Keep getting out there and driving. Good luck in the recovery... definitely pulling for you.

        Thank you! :)

        Post up a photo of your vehicle here (blur your plate or use a photo from a different vehicle that's otherwise the same as yours) and we can help you figure out the best options and placement. https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?forums/57/

      Hi, Installed ALP system on my car. Live in a state that they are legal but in 2 years will move to a state where they are not. Not concerned about having them and know the proper way to use them but they are very visible on the rear. Concerned about getting pulled over by how visible they are if seen. Am I being ridiculous? (supporting you on patreon)

        They're parking sensors. :) Lots of people have run jammers in banned states with no issues. Virginia is the only place I've seen where some officers will look for them, but otherwise it's no big deal.

        I think ALPs also have the ability to lock with a USB stick. When you remove that, it is definitely only a parking sensor system and can not work as LDI. The docs warn sternly that you not lose your USB stick, because they can't help you recover it.

      Vortex, I have spent more time today researching RD's than I knew was even possible. I am looking for a new RD, last one I ever used was an Escort Solo, many years ago. I want the latest and greatest, or at least up to 5-600 dollars for driving in the city and highway. I don't want to have to pair it with a phone so plug and go is what I would really like to have if available. Anyway, the more I research the more i wonder if any of them are any good. I don't want a kazillion false alerts but I understand a few. I will need a windshield mount for a pickup. I live in OKC, i have no idea what the LEO's use for radar or laser. Is this enough information for you to recommend me a RD that i won't have to update the software every other week? Thanks in advance.

      Hi Vortex, Can you tell me if I'm able to down load firmware for the Uniden LDR950 if I am using a Apple computer? Keep up all the good work.

      Hi Vortex,

      I was reading your post re:
      [h=2]PerformancePackage Mirror Mount with the LRD950[/h]
      and I had a couple of questions. You said that "the screws don't line up exactly right but tighten down nicely" and holds the 950 solidly. Do the screws come included with the mount? Where exactly do they screw in the 950's mount? Any type of "gotchas"? I assume that this mount was designed to fit Escorts? Which ones? Thanks for your time.
