    I understand. I’m following the TMG work as well. I’m not in a hurry to sell the blinder since it’s just sitting in the garage. I really don’t want to go through all the work to install it only to rip it back out. I may do it if I get board and want to perform a practice install. I’ll have to be realllllly board

    Here's my opinion on this:

    IF you:
    1. Already have the Blinders installed, AND
    2. You are sure Dragoneye is NOT used in your state

    Then keep using the Blinders. However if either of the first two conditions is not true, don't waste your time installing them.

    I followed the same principle with my STiR+ head. AL was still selling those to people in 2014 for integration with ALP (they soon realized that they screwed up, pulled them from inventory, and worked on developing the NetRadar). That thing was absolutely intolerable, and falsed every 10-20 minutes to K band, if not more. But I put up with it because CHP uses only 34.7 and so I simply disabled K band, which got rid of the false alarms.

    Then my car got totaled. Now a fully installed, crappy system with drawbacks that happen to not apply to your use case is one thing, but putting money and effort into installing it on a new car is another. I replaced the damaged ALP sensors and put the ALPs on my new car, but got the Max Ci 360 Platform for RADAR. So now I am not blind to K band anymore.

    I haven't installed the Blinder M27 kit on my new car. I ripped only the two heads off that old car and for various reasons, didn't pull the CPU out so now I have two Blinder "transponders" and nothing to do with them. I gotta figure out if I should just throw them out, try to sell em on eBay, or find someone with a CPU.

    I'd say try to sell, but if no one bites, just toss them. They're obsolete.
