    Hi All,

    Got laser shot this morning.
    I'm in South Australia.
    Can someone identity a laser for me please? :)
    Unit was black looking or real dark grey.
    2 lenses, one above the other. Thin blue line across the side.
    Was not speeding so all good for me this time :)
    2 motorcycle cops chilling near a bus stop. Long straight road. He would have pinned me from 1km easy to say the least.

    Yep. That looks like the one.
    I think cops only use 2 types here.
    Yet to buy a detector or jammer, so just wanted to be sure before I take the plunge dollar wise.
    I tried to snap a pick of the cop on my way past the second time but he'd pulled someone over and wasn't shooting, so I couldn't get a pic for you guys. Was at work also and had to get back to base. Third time I drove down the road they had bailed out and it was around lunchtime (doughnut time).
    Cheers for the confirmation on that mate :) Done well!

    The pic of that gun looks alot cleaner than the cops one. His was scuffed and chipped as if it had fallen off the bike about 200 times. Well thrashed out! Not surprised haha
    Any specks on this? Such as it's range E. C. T.

    Cheers :)

    Awesome info.
    1km range.

    Does the old escort 9500ci jam this effectively?

    125pps I notice also from another thread on here.... But is this laser variable?

    Also, recently seen a guy from the UK making alot of noise dissing ALPriority price. He's making his own jammers and selling them online and claims his are stronger and use better quality components (Osram).

    You dont want to recommend a product you know nothing about
    Ever

    You end up recommending scams and scammers like this nutbag from the UK

    Hes banned from here for being a wanker

    His crap doesnt work and what he says about other parking sensor companies is bs as well

    He starts out in his youtube video saying he doesnt use LEDs like the Alps

    ALPS dont use LEDS
    Total nutjob
    Whos only intent is to make off into the night with your money

    Didn't recommend it mate.
    Just said check it out.
    Stumbled across him about 5 days ago. His videos are current and he's got no solid tests of his product to backup his claims (yet).
    I'm half a world away from him too. What works or doesn't in the UK may not apply here. Much like some USA stuff for Oz E. G. dragon eye not in Oz yet.
    I know there are patriotic manufacturers floating around on this website too. I've seen the arguments. There's also someone currently testing a new jammer system with components coming out of Taiwan, and that ruffled feathers.
    This is not my argument as a consumer. Only argument I have is with police.
    I respect your opinion though. I am on the sideline and neutral to all ideas until I drop coin on a device and have a say from EXPERIENCE. Until then, I'm a researcher and far from expert. Some guys on here are, and that's why I joined to listen in.
    You are the first to inform the UK guy is banned. So I already learned from that at least. Remember also, Australia does not manufacture any form of radar detector or jammer, and if they did I'd bank it would be outlawed quickly and the idea crushed. So people like me will arrive on RD forum out of interest to gain something from it.
    Not having a go at you mate, just stating my position in this cat and mouse game. You have it good if you are in USA, to be able to develop a system as well as use it. We are not so fortunate. Do continue though. Tell me more about the UK guy, I'd like to hear the opinions.
    Vortex himself has no test info for Australia either and least he's honest about it. Like I said, Australia just does not have the backup like USA, and if vortex lived here I'm certain authorities would not take him lightly. Welcome to my world, it is underground somewhat. Detectors are sold and used illegally in 7/8 of the country.

    Get ALP. His sensors are a basic board with an LED and about a pound of hot glue each. Total nut job that knows nothing about what he's doing lol

    Components to justify the price is one thing. To me his set-up just looked like a flashing light to be honest much like a TV remote. He's not out on the street showing performance either.

    Around here we go with units that have been tested by our test groups and we have tested most of them in real world usage scenarios. While there are some units out there that kinda work we don't recommend them as Thier performance isn't consistent or reliable. Another factor we consider is the product support and updates, new guns are coming out and things are changing, a product that isn't being updates will become less effective over time. Even recently a newcomer to the US market (TMG) brought Thier jammers to us for testing and we worked with them to help them improve Thier product, testing is still going on but they may enter the market with a good product here soon. A company that is serious about making and maintaining a good product, as well as having good consistent results when independently tested is what you want for a jammer. Nothing worse than spending a bunch and getting unreliable performance. For the LRB, it's an older gun so many of the older jammers like blinder, laser interceptor, and some of the escort shifters can handle it, they won't however take care of the newer threats as well if at all so and aren't being updated. ALP can definitely handle it and is well supported and frequently updated. We shall see if TMG does well it might also be a consideration.

    I hear you. They're extremely cheaply made and won't do anything in the real world. A member has tested them and it's like the car didn't have sensors at all.

    Most of us run AL because it has proven itself time and time again. You'd be far better off going that route and you most definitely won't regret it!

    I'm eyeing off an escort 9500ci at the moment. Will it do the job I need against the threats I have here tho? That's my pick and I know it's old, but I can score it for a decent price.
    Assistance appreciated...

    Yes the 9500CI will defeat that gun. The city closest to me only runs LTI Ultralyte's and PL4's. 9500CI has no issues with either of them.

    Do you have Poliscan in your area? (Stationary photo lidar vans?)

    Unsure. Research tells me it's redflex here. I've a pic tho. Check this... It's the common cam used. Think the other gun is truspeed but till I see it I cannot confirm. Managed to be bothered to pull over and snap a pic of this the other day. Sorry for the sideways pic. Unsure how to straighten it. DSC_0572.JPG

    If you see TruSpeed I wouldn't go with the CI. Depending if it's a TruSpeed S or just an ordinary TruSpeed, the CI will not defend against it.

    Redflex is another nasty one. It's a uniquely polarized variable frequency radar that almost no detectors can pick up to give you good warning. You guys are up against a lot there

    Welcome to my world :) let me see my reference material. Gimmie a few minutes... Accuracy of it is questionable (until I see it with my own eyes like the gun above that started the thread)
    The gov is great at revinue raising here and my state pays the highest fines in the country.

    This coveres fixed red light and speed cameras for free, or remove ads for $2 I think. So that knocks a couple off the list. Redflex is the main issue and laser not looking so bad. Not looked to the Kustom yet, but the above info might not be 100%. Anyways... 1am here, I'm calling it a night. Cheers for all input from you fellaz. Chat more tomorrow probably and I'll take a look at the Kustom. Far as that list goes it's saying the kustom is what's on the unmarked car in the pic I posted. Unsure though. Still learning all this stuff and need to narrow down the irrelevant info for my area as well as irrelevant detectors. Working on it though, and you lot help heaps. Thanks once again. Just sucks to fork out $3000Au for something that might still loose you your license if found fitted to your car, then that could cost a job, on top of a fine, a defected vehicle (cops stop you from using your car until you return it to factory stock) and a nice note on the police database everytime your numberplate is read, saying you like to evade police. A bit at stake over here. It doesn't make it a walk in the park for me. Tricky....
