Hey everyone,

Been pretty interested in buying a radar detector for my new car (and also wifes car). I am considering the R7. Also maybe considering a laser jammer in the future, I have been reading a ton of it, ALP seems amazing but probably would go TMG for price/simpler to install (I would like to learn how to diy install).

Would love to know what info locals have about what is being used up here. I am in Saugerties, NY and travel around around this are, Albany, Hudson, Kingston.

Welcome, the R7 and jammers would be a solid set up for you! Installing jammers is easier than you think. Just take time with the heads. If the firewall or tapping power is intimidating, have a shop just do that part.

thank you for the welcome @jestric and @2018GTI !

I think would be the firewall that would be the more annoying part tbh. I like tinkering with stuff but never have done much car stuff.
Yeah, just stick with it! Google your car for amplifier installations and you will likely find the firewall penetration. I didn't do my GTI, but I did do my 2011 Ford Transit. I learned a lot!
