What I like about the ZR4 is the ability to put the heads into "receive only" mode. Therefore, while driving in areas such as Canada, my STi, G4 and Laser Shield should provide me with some measure of protection. I don't believe the Blinder can do this...correct me if I am wrong.

Default Key Jamming Performance is Reliability

^IMO, you left the most important aspect of laser jamming performance: RELIABILITY.

If your laser jammer doesn't last in the field because it is either poorly engineered and/or overdriven then its performance (when it works) really doesn't matter and, in fact, you may be putting yourself at risk (especially if the laser jammer doesn't provide adequate diagnostic feedback during power-up).

I have heard far too may complaints from users of laser diode jammers to risk using them myself and again, IMO, any theoretical performance advantage is largely offset by using an LED-based laser jammer with Veil.

That's why I stick the three majors: Beltronics, Escort, Blinder, because I know they will continue to operate reliably in the field after their install.

The added bonus is these cool operating laser jammers cost a fraction of their more expensive laser-diode counterparts.

There has been only one laser-diode jammer that, I believe, has proven the test of time and that is the Lidatek LE-10. Unfortunately its been out of production for some time...

...

V,

About the ZR4/9500ci, yes that is a very nice feature, indeed, and I believe you are correct, the Blinders do not have the ability (to receive only).

Default Jammer Considerations!!

You are right that Blinder can not be put into recieve only mode..You have to decide if features are more important than performance. While the Zr4 has more features and is a great product and well worth the money the Blinder has proven better JTG performance..When making a jammer purchase you should consider some things. Price,Performance,Reliabilty as The Veil guy indicated, and last to me is Features...Features is last on my list because what good is a jammer if it has all the bells and whistles but doesn't do what it is designed to do..JAM LASER!!!!

Default Very true

Mhardy2288,

Is right when looking at a jammer, price, performance and reliability are very important. Blinder has proven over the years to be the best LED Jammer on the market as far as performance and reliability. Considering most officers these days are shooting under the 500 foot mark, the blinder is the best choice for less punch-throughs versus the escort.

The color of your car should make it more difficult than average to get a reading from it. The veil application looks like it will help quite a bit.
You may find it helpful if you can find someone to help you test your vehicle. Looking through the HUD on a LIDAR gun is very educational. You will learn that though effective, the gun doesn't always give a reading right away. The color and shape of the car makes a big difference. You will also learn at what range your car typically becomes vulnerable.
How do they handle things if they find a jammer in Canada?
I agree with the comments above that the proper discipline is to de-activate the jammer as soon as you can.
Are laser detectors legal in Canada? If they aren't, you may need to work on dropping speed quickly without looking like you suddenly stood on the brakes.
Going back to the testing issue, it has been my experience that the quality of the installation and the accuracy of the leveling and aiming of the heads is absolutely paramount. A poorly mounted jammer will barely work, even if it is one of the best models. A perfectly mounted jammer will provide you a reasonable degree of protection even if it isn't one of the types known for JTG performance. What you are looking for is reasonable protection, since in Canada you don't want to JTG if you can help it.
The other thing to consider is the rear of the vehicle. Down here (in Georgia) all LIDAR was being done from the front, but recently they seem to have started to shoot people in the back as they pass. The guns don't seem to care and are happy to operate either way. Most cars are considerably easier to paint from the rear, since they are less aerodynamic from the back. A good jammer can tremendously even things up for you in that area.

Again, if you can arrange it, getting someone with a LIDAR to help you test your setup will provide you with the understanding of how your car interacts with LIDAR and what the guns can and can't do. If possible you should use the kind of LIDAR that is prevalent in your area, since there are differences between guns.
