      Are there any test results for ALP vs TMG A-15? I've been running unprotected against laser and wondering if I should wait for TMG or go for the ALP. Being a small, low car, would the TMG have issues like the TX ALP heads?

      Escort Passport 8500x50 with Smart cord USB IS this new?
      1. Vortex
        Whoa that's an old detector now. It's since been discontinued by Escort. Even its replacement, the Passport, has been discontinued, and replaced by the X70 and X80. If you don't need the GPS/Bluetooth, a Uniden DFR6 will give you longer range, better reactivity, and better BSM filtering for less money.

      Hi Vortex,
      I'm sorry to bother you, but cannot get this sorted out. Display won't show multi alerts on left side. I'm running ADV, segmented, etc.
      Can you guide me thru this?
      Thanks for all you do,

      Based off of your videos I bought myself a Uniden R3 and R1 for the wife. By the way I work in Redmond, WA and a commercial drone pilot, so if you need any aerial footage for upcoming videos, I'm happy to help

      Does BestRadarDetectors give a forum discount for members? I can't find any info since I have been away for awhile and not use to the new format. Ready put the old Redline in the every now and then Porsche and get a an R3. Been holding out for V1 to come out with new one, but I may die before then.

      FYI, I'm the one that bought the LR950 from you for my daughter.

      Hey Vortex

      Your videos are awesome! I purchased two Uniden R3s and two ALP systems for my V10 R8 and 488GTB based on your videos! I just finished the install on the R8 and wanted to test the ALP system. I noticed your are also in the Seattle area, would you or do your know anyone that has access to a laser that I could verify my system with? Obviously, beer or lunch would be provided!

      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.

        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)
      1. Vortex
        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.
