    Nice and explanatory. It's kind of complicated. Three modes: city, rural and highway are enough. Combine them with muting for less than PSL-20kmph (30 for the 50PSL in city environment, 70 for the 90 PSL for rural roads and 100 for the 120/130 PSL of the highways) and that's adequate and simple for 99% of the users. Of course I'm using EU experience here and all of the above cover the main threats a EU driver will face 99% of the time. In US or AU conditions are different and the way police works is not similar to what Stinger faces in Europe.

    is this statement true ? : please comment if you have other ideas, or if i am getting it wrong

    1. yes but there are a lot of different cars ( a lot of different k-band values ) , so the false list , will have to be manually modified, and you have to set your speed-sense low enough on the highway ( 90km/u for example ) to have a clear signal-alert and add the k-band to the false list manually , gradually stinger becomes more silent, after some time - weeks? - you can put your speed-sense to normal highway value.

    2. In fact it could be an expensive ( probably unfeasible ) option for stinger-firm to catalogue the different k-band frequencies per car brand and put them in the false list update ?

    The installer did horrible job.
    First the sensor is way to low positioned. Second, if an installer uses 3M tape, glue, run away as fast as you can. Either they dont know what they are doing and just doing it for free cash or they are just lazy to do it as it should have been done.

    I agree they ( team in Heidelberg ) where doing it for the cash, this install ( pictures on the rear ) was on my previous car ( the CLA 250 sport ) , i did not want it done on my CLA45 AMG.

    In the meantime, I changed team , i called upon a team in holland ( bredaautoshop ) , who are officially dealing STINGER , and they , advised against installing the stinger for 2 reasons : 1 they would need to place it higher ( near the licence plate ) , they would need to make wholes in the back for the placement of the rear stinger ( and hurting the car by drilling holes ) . And 2 shooting from the rear is rare in holland, Belgium and Luxembourg.

    The could have sold me side laser too , but they said only used in Italy ,

    The team in Heidelberg ( radarshop ) asked 900 euros to reinstall the stinger in the AMG , the team in holland only asked 400 euros . So they where honest.
    The working conditions where different too, in Heidelberg the worked in dirty conditions , in holland it was clinical clean.

    So i don't have a stinger component at the rear of my car anymore, for aesthetic and technical reasons.
    And the team now is official dealer.

    I don't know how they attached the receiver of course ( superglue )
    the fibre-optic was via a little hole as you can see.
    At the time I was pleased with the solution , but now, with the feedback of experts , I opt not to put it,
    so now I have an fibre for spare.
    If you look close at the CLA, you must admit there is not much option to install it at the rear.

    One thing we, enthusiasts, learned is you cant trust official installer since most of the time those guys dont have a clue how LJ work. Yes, they go through training but they only know basics.
    Let me show you the work of no.1 Escort representative/vendor/installer for entire Canada.

    i am confident that my guys where capable of doing something similar at the rear , and put the fiber near the licence plate
    everything is possible when you pay for it , but i already spend 4000 euro for it and i figure they did not want me spending more money then necessary for something which is not necessary ( and deemed useless )

    So please be a little bit respectful to my team

    you do have a nice car or cars by the way

    You serious?
    Your team? Are you their investor or own part of the business? That is just one out of many installers, nothing else. You got emotionally attached to some dude who installs Stinger and suggested no rear protection is needed and will do the job for 400 euros.
    I dont have financial interest in you like those installer guys, I am spending my free time to show you things you need to watch out for and its for your own benefit since you are still a general user and cant access higher restricted levels of threads/conversations where these photos (which are mine) are located. And then you are calling me to be more respectful to your team?????

    I think you missed his point....

    He is showing those pictures from the "#1 Escort installer"/Distributor in Canada, Because they are totally garbage installs and show what NOT to do....and that even though they're the "#1 installer" doesn't mean they know what they're doing.

    That are not his cars, he is showing you how official sellers distributors do not have a clue how this things need to be installed.
    Price of installation does not mean that it is done right.
    With years dealing with jammers and people you can see all mistakes that people do. Run to most expensive solution, then later fix after them.
    On the end it comes to, DIY is the best solution. Of course if person is good with tools, some people are just not and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Always put laser sensor in the back, nowadays cops in The Netherlands have new method of lasergun usage, they wait at the highway onramp and tag you from behind, you cannot see them, cops are getting smarter.

    yes i suspect that is true,
    ik ben er zeker van,

    I have a fiberoptic and receiver for spare now ( on my 250 they were mounted at the rear ) , which i choose not to mount , because of the damage it would cause. An amg cla45 mercedes is not well fit to put a stinger there, it would involve an considerable cost , i gues to lead the wires to the trunk at the level of the licence plate - in stead of mounting it at the bottom -
    I think that is te reason why they talked me out of it - they could not do that for a reasonable price .

    I don't actually know , if they where capable of doing without piercing a whole in the back of the car

    you know someone with a reasonable solution in a CLA ? which works ?

    anyways , it's nice to have the thingy but if you want real speed go on track of Germany and for the rest you do some 'reasonable' speeding , not the ones you showed on your youtube films, irresponsible driving

    I have an ALG9 RX v2 which I do not use anymore with 2 heads, if you put these in the back no way a lasergun can penetrate, even at 3ft away (1 metre).
    Even if you mount them below the bumper. We tested it at Flitsservice with one head, was impossible! Firmware still ok against laserguns in Holland.

    so what you mean to say is : the solution they implemented in germany was sufficient indeed ?
    you see the little hole with the fiber and the receiver / or is it transmitter under the bumper
