Typically, if someone's looking for more discretion, we advise them towards the visor mount, which is pretty low profile and easy install that doesn't require any crazy customization work.

The one thing it doesn't address is the deadly LIDAR. Still a cool unit tho.

LIDAR's a tough customer. You can't really jam or detect a beam of light in the same way you can other forms of speed detection. Thankyfully, LIDAR's have caught a lot of flak recently for being inaccurate thanks to streaking, sweeping, and shaky hand motion. The specificity of the LIDAR system requires really precise control of the unit. A number of states that had switched to LIDAR--which isn't many yet, honestly--have had LIDAR based speeding tickets thrown out regularly because of the irregularity of the system as result of human error while using it. Still, fighting something like that in court's rough. I wish there were a fool-proof way to detect/jam LIDAR.

Thanks,
Matt

Matt,

Living in Marietta you know all to well how prevalent LIDAR is in the area.

Have you guys worked with the Escort ZR4 Laser Shifter much?

Funk,

I haven't personally used the ZR4 yet, but, my boss has and he swears by it. I contemplated mentioning it in conjunction with the LIDAR bit before, as it's probably the best bet for LIDAR, but I just don't have the personal experience with it yet. That being said, my boss uses a ZR4 on both of his cars, and he hasn't had a ticket--an amazing feat considering the way he tends to drive, just don't tell him I said that .
Yeah, again, that sort of shifter/jammer seems to be the way to go for LIDAR, and the reviews out there say the same, but even with these new jammers there are still punch-through points for all LIDAR (especially the types of LIDAR guns they use around Atlanta here). There's a good video review by Radar Roy for the ZR4 that makes it look very impressive, but I don't want to give any sort "this will jam all LIDAR" guarantees.
Like I said above, too, bare in mind the issues with LIDAR. It requires a very very steady hand and is known to give false reports and is worth arguing. That being said, some preemptive measures, like a ZR4 shifter definitely can't hurt. Even if they save you from just one ticket, especially based on our Atlanta-area speeding fines, they're worth it.

Here's that Radar Roy review of the ZR4:


Anyone else have personal experience with the ZR4? I'd love to hear some reviews from first-person usage perspectives.

Great question, too. Hope I could be of help in answering it!

Thanks,
Matt

I have spent quite a bit of time on Roy's website and I have narrowed it down to the ZR4 or the Laser Interceptor. His opinion, and pretty much everyone's opinion is the LI is superior to anything on the market. I like the ZR4 because it works in conjunction with the 9500ix.

We have a Camaro visor mount, as well as a BlendMount for the Camaro. You can couple these with a Micro Invisicord (same thing as the standard one, just with a micro-sized connection specifically for the Camaro mirror) for a similar low-profile installation as you have in your Corvette.

Thanks,
Matt

I am in the market for another detector/jammer. But I will say something for sure, I know ARSP are big on not tagging you with laser until you are close to them...in that situation, the ZR4 probably wouldn't help. That and where you mount the diffusors would be difficult on the car because they would have to be in the grill upper or lower or you just say "the heck with cosmetics".

Do you guys have any install pics of either the visor or bend mount kits in a Camaro? Looking for something showing off the standard cord and the micro-invisicord.

Thanks

Does this package price include the green gamer edition or the carbon one as well or is it just the regular model?

No price change for the special editions! Just click the link and you'll see them as selectable options under the drop-down menu in the middle of the page.

Do you guys still carry the Visor Mount??

It keeps the unit higher and out of sight behind the tint brow.

We sure do. Here's the Camaro Visor Mount by itself. You can also get one for free when you buy a new Escort 9500ix Radar Detector Package.

I searched around on your site, but couldn't find the answer. Do you happen to know which invisicord is needed for a 2012 coupe (camera display in rear view mirror)? Just about ready to order one... =) and was confused on which invisicord I needed.

Thanks!

All Camaros use the same invisicord, actually. It's a different wire from other vehicles, yes, but the same across the board for Camaros. It utilizes a micro size adapter .5" as opposed to the standard size.

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
Matt

Thanks... I have one of these but folks are always asking where to get it and could never seem to find it on your site.

I'll save the link better this time.

And for anyone who has an Escort you simply cannot beat this mount... Soon as I get my ZL1 I'll be installing it again...

Now I can't decide between the package and your other one, with the 9500ix and blend mount.

The blend mount is nice, but hangs from your mirror in plain sight for cops or anyone in a parking lot that want's to smash and grab a $500 detector.

Trust me the visor mount is awsome and completely hidden from outside view. Get the invisicord and the wire can be tucked right under the headliner and down to the fuse box for easy hook up. The mute button sits nicely on the dash next to the A-pillar. It's also a nice visual alert too.

Personally, I prefer the BlendMount just because visually I like having it in the middle of my viewing area. It's small enough to not be a nuisance and makes for an easier/cleaner installation with the provided MirrorTap cord. The Visor Mount does also have its benefits. It ultimately comes down to personal preference on mounting style and location.

Thanks,
Matt

Here's the Camaro Radar Detector Visor Mount listing which has images of the detector mounted there.
The BlendMount mounts exactly as seen above, literally directly at the bottom of the Camaro rear view mirror and rests against it.

For USPS shipping quote, or for any exact shipping quote internationally, please just call us at our office here at (770)919-1433 and we'll price that out for you.

Thanks,
Matt
