Mythbusters also tested Rocky Mountain Radar's "passive" jammers and NONE were effective at all.

Just to check for myself, I actually had a buddy of mine on the state patrol try to nail my car while I used one of Rocky Mountian Radar's latest and greatest, the "Phazer 3" "passive" radar/laser jammer. He did it with no problems with both radar AND laser.

Not bad for a $149 paperweight. :(

They do however give it a 3 year warranty and a 1 Year Ticket Rebate program if you ever get pulled over for speeding and issued a ticket while using it. BUT, here's the kicker... the rebate program is only good if you're going slower than 10 mph over the posted speed limit.

Odds of being pulled over for going over the posted speed limit by less than 10 mph are slim, so the rebate program is "bunk" to say the least.

I have found the BEST solution for this......

Go but a Crown Vic, put pushbar, spotlight and a clear LED dashlight on it. Tint the windows and POW, they leave you alone!

I drove an X cop car, White 2000 vic, pushbar, spotlight tinted windows and couple roof antennas. I even had the LED's before the agencies did. I never got pulled over, in fact I had a motor unit running laser waive at me when I went by.... I was like SUCKER.... hahahaha

I just bought a Escort 8500 x50 and had it for the 14 day test drive. I ended up sending it back because most cops here use Laser, and like it was said you generally don't get notified of Laser until they already have your speed. It was great at detecting cops driving on the road with their in car radar on, though. I just figured I'll stay under 10 MPH over and hope for the best.

You should get the Escort 9500ci. The laser jammers work great. (Radar as well).

After Lingenfelter installed mine (Among many other "items"), I had a 600 mile drive home. The unit detected laser being shot at me several times and jammed it. I slowed down to the speed limit (ASAP), hit the mute button 2x, and then let the man get a reading. Worked as advertised and well worth the money.

With radar, you always take your chances since nothing jams radar (That I know of). You can only hope that your detector picks up the radar signal as they are shooting at someone else.

This unit has helped me in multiple situations. And I'm not out driving carelessly at 35 mph over the posted limit. I'd say, on average, 10-15 mph over the limit, which is really not hard to do.

I'd say the unit not only helps you to not get ticketed, but also helps controlling speed since alot of times you can daydream into a speeing ticket.

The Escort 9500ci works great. One thing to note: It is a stealthly mounted system that is NOT designed to be moved from car to car. But that was what I was looking for.

What a lot of people don't know is actually how radar guns work. Most radar guns in police cars will readout the top 2 or 3 speeds of surrounding traffic. It is then up to the police officer to make a judgement call to determine who is actually speeding. In heavy traffic this is difficult to do. The best method they prefer to use is laser. That's why most of the time when traveling the interstate system you will find police officers posted up in the median just after an obstacle in the direction of oncoming traffic. Knowing the methods used more than just what equipment they use is also a way to beat a ticket. Usually they post up right after speed limit changes behind obstacles. It's easier for them to nail you with a laser than it is radar. In certain kinds of weather laser is ineffective. Most of all a police officer doesn't even need to use either of those methods. They can simply pace you end of story. With that said, it's probably best not to speed unless on a race track. You put yourself and others at risk. You may be a skilled driver but in my experience I have also met very unskilled drivers, distracted by other things not paying attention to the road or their surroundings, this includes checking mirrors, etc.... If you been to Kuwait you'd know what bad driver's really are. A lot of the problem is the "Me first" attitude. Maybe the US should adopt Germany's licensing requirements LMAO.

I have the Passport 9500ci and had really good luck with the radar portion of it.

I had the laser jammers go off a few times and never got pulled over, so I assumed it worked.

However, I was traveling through the Texas/Louisiana border when I crested a hill and got hit with laser. I was doing 10 MPH over and was able to slow down. I got pulled over and Texas DPS said I was doing 5 over. (I think he just wanted to search the car)

Bottom line is that he was able to "punch through" the jammer at approx 100 yards. I was not impressed with the Passport jammers.

I am looking at doing the Laser Star unit for the ZL1. It seems to have gotten good reviews.

Anybody have any experience with it?

I used a V1 in 6 One Lap Of Americas. Never got a ticket,and not from lack of trying. The V1 was great. Had a K40 in an '87 928 Porsche for a while. It worked well but lagged way behind the V1 in alert times. That said the V1 does false more than I would like. The number of radars tracked and the direction they are coming from feature has saved me from several elaborate traps where LEF will show you one radar and hide the second further down the road. The V1 lets me know that there is still one up ahead and to stay slow.

I will say that V1 is right there with them but K40 will pay for any tickets that you get with their detectors which puts them out front for me.

Agreed! I have the K40 Combo and love it. This was a solid thread with a lot of information for people to make good decisions on, but I def. stand behind K40!

Someone should update these tests. The new BEL STI Magnum is now the most sensitive windshield mount radar detector out now. The Laser Interceptor shifter now can jam all guns to very close or JTG.

There's one in the DIY thread. I used it to install the invisicord in my 2010 Camaro SS for the Passport.

It's all there with pictures and everything.

Do bear in mind to check the wiring diagram as some of the wires are a little different now for the 2012 and 2013 models as well as the convertible.

Look for the right colors in the wiring loom.
