Two head ZR5 is useless indeed against the Dragoneye. We purchased a system ourselves and installed it - IPT even with ECCM off on front and rear. This surprised even me how bad it was, I was expecting JTG with ECCM off so maybe there is something wrong with our system. But this is brand new out of the box on the latest firmware that enabled JTK. This is against both DETC and recertified DALA. Happy to demo this for anyone in the Cincy area.

I have not heard anything about 4 sensors being worse than 3, but I can test that as well when I get some time. Escort is currently telling dealers to put all 4 heads up front and buy an additional wireless ZR5 to cover the rear. They are also telling people Dragoneye is only used in Atlanta.
While I haven't tested with the latest and greatest DET I have faired well against them with ECCM on in the past with only 2 heads... I am sure things can change though....

I tested okay against DET with ECCM on with 2 heads and tested great against DET ECCM on with 3 heads. As posted earlier 4 heads tested worse than 3 heads--not sure why.

I live in Duluth just outside of ATL. I have 4 heads on the front of my Porsche Cayman S. Im trying to get mine tested (ZR5) soon. Im new to the DET and ECCM lingo. I think that DET is the dreadful Dragon Eye. But I have no idea what ECCM means. Can you help me out?

ECCM is the anti-jamming software that is on the dragoneye guns. Not all dragoneye's have it.

ECCM stands for electronic counter counter measures. As stated by Jon it attempts to prevent laser jammers from being able to jam.

Oh boy, 4 heads up front and you are still not sure you are fully protected.
Escort really dropped the ball with laser part.
Wait, it dropped the ball back in 2013 by failing to address Dragoneye.
This is nothing new.

I had my 4 head system tested today. Keith hooked me up with 2 different guns-one was True speed and the other DE-Dragon eye if I remember he told me. Both were JTG from a LONG freaking way.So around a curve I came and Screaming loud went my 360C LASER front detection!
At last when arriving at the test point, Keith was thumbs up JTG the whole way! So my 4 head system is working and so well I'm proud to say that Escort is on the top of my list once again despite all the horror stories I read here. Thanks and shout out to my new friend Keith here in Norcross and shout out to Bryan at Escort as well. I'm set to meet the onslaught of Leos with confidence now.

Wow Bailey who pissed in your cheerio's? LOL-I just said I needed to have mine tested before I felt secure in my setup being totally functional. Now its tested and Yes I'm JTG so my questions been answered logically and truthfully. Hope your day gets better dude-Mines Awesome!

the last escort I've tested, did great with three heads up front. Placement and alignment are key factors.

I have a similar question. I have a Porsche Cayman s with 2 heads mounted already. How would I add 2 more? What would be the head placement of 4 on my front grill-all side by side- or 2under each headlight and the other 2 top and bottom center grill?
Maybe we can get the same answer?

which is the superior system now? Escort ZR5 4 head system or TMG 4 head system?
Any help is appreciated. I own a Porsche Cayman S.
TMG....not even close now their dragon heads out. Just bought 2 more upon release was jtg before. Expect nothing less.
Actually last time the dragon got me at 192 feet which is like 30 yards which is like nothing but in any case technically he got me at 192 feet but I jammed him all the way down to 192 ft which means you got plenty of time to slow down I need to see how I'm doing against the stalker units
