    First hit with ZW5 on Merc S550

    Got hit again going through Tacoma, WA by a WASP. Laser started alarming and I double tapped. He watched my car for a while as I think he was trying to measure my speed but could not. Pulled me over anyway for no front plate. Asked why I did not have one and I told him I was not aware of the...

    First hit with ZW5 on Merc S550

    Zipping up the I-5 in Washington state and I think a WASP took a shot at me. Laser alerts sounded and I slowed down and double tapped the mute. Not sure if he was shooting my car or not. Is laser scatter common or would it have only activated if my car was being shot. Either way I cruised...

    ALP Speed Limit is going to cost me a ticket

    Interesting to hear that the almighty ALP has software issues just like Escort. The passion about this seems as high as the passion about JTK over on the Escort threads.

    Started taking my 7 series apart to install the ZW5s

    I did the same thing on my S550. Installed them a few months ago and have yet to encounter any laser. Super easy to install.

    Which Jammer To Buy?

    Lot's of ALP fanboys on this site but it really depends on where you are located and the threats in that area. I looked at all of the options and based on where I am at, and the type of car I own, I opted for the ZW5 set-up. I also have the Max 360C windshield mount detector so that played...

    Head placement

    Hi Folks, just fabbed up some mounts for my ZW5 heads and wondering if they need to protrude further out from the grill or if this set up will work. Alignment is perfect and they are dead level, just curious about how far out they need to extend if at all.

    ALP or ZW5

    Just did some last minute adjustments on the heads and fabbed up some new mounts. Pics are below but can someone tell me if these heads are protruding out enough from the grill? do they have to come out past the grill?

    ALP or ZW5

    Just finished my install and while I may be more vulnerable with only two heads, I was not prepared to pay 3K for the ALP system installed in my car. I am into it for about 1400 bucks for the RD and ZW5 integrated set up and I could install it myself. I also crawled all over my car looking for...

    ShifterMax Version 2 heads?

    I just got my shifters last week and they have the white bands on the cords as well. I will be installing mine in the next week or so. Interested to know what the differences are as well.

    ALP or ZW5

    Counterpoint to the auto JTK is that I may want more time or need more time to safely slow down. I have a high end sound system in my car as well and when I am zipping down the 5 at the pace of traffic and a WSP happens to ring my bell I may not hear it right away. I do not want auto mute on...

    ALP or ZW5

    Sorry folks, I do not have the 360CI, but rather the Max 360C. That is why the ZW5 set up is appealing to me. Easy to install on my own without hassling with a firewall passthrough. I am predominantly in WA state so it seems silly to buy a CM that is overkill. I guess my question should have...

    Just looking at the pricing and wondering why you need the GPS module for the TX head option. I do not care about PSL automation or functions and wondering if I can do the 3 head set-up with just the BT. 1550817980 And I assume you can program the Auto Kill time in the ALP. I like the idea if...

    ALP or ZW5

    Drive mostly in Seattle in a 2015 S550. Have an escort max360ci and love the integration and ease of install on the ZW5 but worried about getting zapped and not being covered in this big car. Is the ALP a better choice from a performance perspective.

    ALP or ZW5

    So, thinking I am going to pick up a set of the ALP jammers. Thinking 3 for the front to start. Any recommendations on an installer/dealer in Seattle. Not wild about the place in Bellevue as they quoted me like 3K for the system installed. Would like to buy from a local dealer though and...

    ALP or ZW5

    It was a user on this forum. The installer did not do a very good job with the pass through and it let water into the firewall area inside the cabin and did about 12K worth of damage to the electronics on his E class.

    ALP or ZW5

    Well, after hearing a horror story about water intrusion through a firewall and causing major league electrical damage I am leaning more towards the ZW-5. Anyone know how effective this set up would be on a Merc S550 MY2015. I live and work in the state of WA but go to Oregon on occasion.

    Impact of Waze

    I have noticed that since using Waze on longer distance trips, it has saved me far more times than my fancy $500.00 RD. Wondering if others have seen the same impact of using Waze. Escort live is worthless in my area as very few people use it but Waze is very pervasive.

    ALP or ZW5

    Thanks for the replies and pics. I am looking for a vehicle specific install with pics. I am a big fan of seeing no wire or looms anywhere and maintaining a 100% factory look with whatever I do install including in jams and under the hood. I think I can do this pretty easily with the S Class...
