So @thebravo got me thinking in another thread! I have totally lost faith in Escorts Max 360Ci to jam correctly...Very few updates and they never fulfilled the promise to run more than 4 heads! Hope if @Vortex ever gets to sit down with them again he can find out why! Anyway for my new car I will be running the Max 3360ci's radar system as it does work well! However I will be relying on ALP for laser defense (2rx 1 tx in both the front and rear) So the Max Ci heads will be thrown in a draw, unless it may be of some benefit to run one front and rear in receive only mode high up on the windshield and rear window for scatter detection? It is easy enough to do, just not sure it has any real world advantage?

So as mentioned in the other thread we hijacked, I'm thinking about doing this with my older LI spare parts, I would set them in detection only of course so there is no interference with ALP... I'd do it Mainly for fun, but there are a lot of times I will see a cop ahead spewing laser but ALP doesn't get anything as there is traffic ahead of me blocking the view cause it's down low in the grill, of course I slow before I get there so I don't get shot or get gun ID which is annoying. I have had the experience of cresting a hill into an active lidar trap before where ALP went off as soon as it crested the hill but the top half of me was exposed for a short burst first and it would have been nice to be able to start the braking process a tiny bit earlier if it could have warned me sooner... I'm also tempted to stick a couple sensors under the side view mirrors too for additional view past traffic on the sides... In terms of protection of course it's just a detector, but with it's elevated and wider placement I'm interested to see how it does at catching scatter and perhaps alerting me sooner to a trap ahead than ALP can just due to the limited view ALP has from the grill... If I end up with spare ALP heads I would use those as they are more sensitive and just hook them in detection only mode to my old CPU...it seems like a fun experiment. Practical maybe not but fun... Plus I can see if I find any guns that ALP detects that LI doesn't recognize out In the wild, hell id run some blinder and escort heads too just for data if I had them... It's like mounting a remote radar antenna to the roof, it might catch a sniff a little earlier.

I don't see much laser to begin with, but since I have the sensors I will look at running one up to the headliner for the hell of it...
