Cool Laser Star

Any one have results w/ Laser Star?

I'm looking at the Passport 9500CI, but have heard that the ZR4 laser pieces don't fare well w/ Stalker laser guns which my state uses.

Also if I was to buy the Laser Star or another set-up would it hook in directly in place of the ZR4's supplied?

Or would I have to connect each system separate?

Hope these aren't real dumb questions, I'm new to the jammer stuff.

Currently I use a Bel STI, but want better protection.

Any other system reccommendations are appreciated.

To be installed on a new style Mustang.

First, welcome to SpeedTrapHunter.

Second, no, there are no stupid questions - not everything is cut-and-dry, super-obvious. Don't feel bad, at all, or shy, to ask any and all questions!

First and foremost, no, the vast majority of the current-day active laser jammers are not "cross-compatible" in the sense that you wish them to be (i.e. unplug the "heads" of system X, then plug the heads of your new system Y into the remaining in-vehicle control-box that is still resident from system X). Most of these systems are designed to be run "complete," as one discrete unit. The notable exception is/was the LPP/AL G8 and G7/PASS/and *suspected* LaserStar cousins, which *should* all be able to be run off interchangeable control-boxes - however, even towards this end, more than one hobbyist group has reported inconsistent and far-from-optimal results.

Currently, I would recommend running each system as a discrete unit only.

[ Your question of running more than one system at a time, also, needs to be examined in more detail, in terms of the systems potentially "cross-talking" with each other, and offering destructive-interference. This, I will come back to in more detail, in a follow-up post. ]

As a beginner, I would highly advocate that you get just ONE good active laser jammer system, and let it rest at that.

In terms of the LaserStar.....

Radar Detector Tests and Reviews by Guys of LIDAR

^ I've always trusted, implicitly, the Guys of Lidar. To-date, they have yet to give me any reason to distrust them.

However, at the same time, the backstory behind the GOL and The Goons cannot be denied, so I am willing to entertain the POSSIBILITY, out of a pure desire for fairness, that their testing of the LaserStar should not be taken at face-value.

But even if I were to entertain such a theory/thought, I would then ask the following:

Why has there not been any other RELIABLE independent hobbyist sources - and to-date, there are more than a half-dozen such independent hobbyist groups out there, just in the US alone - to have confirmed what The Goons, on LaserJammerTests.com , have insisted to be the superiority of the LaserStar?

You can see some of my reasoning in the threads below. I apologize for all the reading you'll have to do, but in all honesty, there's no better way than these cited threads to get yourself well-acquainted with the issues at-hand:

Escort Passport 9500ci or Laser Interceptor - Radar Detector Reviews & Radar Detectors Review Forum & Test

CONSUMER ALERT!! Laser Star officially sucks balls - Radar Detector Reviews & Radar Detectors Review Forum & Test

Thinking of buying a Laserstar Laser Jammer ?? - Radar Detector Reviews & Radar Detectors Review Forum & Test

I *_HIGHLY_* encourage you to work through the ENTIRE content pages of the first two threads, as it will give you the proper background on which to make your decision, about the LaserStar.

Finally, based on the CFL group's testing of the LPP (pre-100 PPS UL revision), PASS, and the AL G8 and G7, I have serious reservations about the capability of the LaserStar to be able to, with any success at all, be able to effectively combat the LTI TruSpeed. Given, furthermore, the silence from the always-vocal Goons, as of late, I am further doubting that the LaserStar is effective against this new device.

Thank you for the welcome.


Not sure what the 'veil' is you speak of.

Looks like the Laser Interceptor does a good job and is reccomended, but I can't find any info or links to buy anywhere?

Looks like is it pretty good against all incl. Stalker.

Cool

Okay, I found the Laser Interceptor site.

Wow those things are pricey, I hope they work like they say?

I currently have the STI and like it.

I may change from the 9500CI to the Bel STI remote and add the Laser Interceptor.

Just need to figure out how to mount w/o causing interference between the two.

I have seen guys mount the heads behind their plastic grills, but wonder how much pick up interference this causes if any? Do the signals go through plastic or not? I wouldn't think so.

Default A suggestion

SCGT,

Welcome to the forum,

I was reading your interest in a good quality Laser Jammer. May I suggest the Blinder M25. Blinder has been one of the most reliable jammers on the market and has performed as advertised. The Blinder has been tested by many forums and has shown to be the best in overall performance in its price range. You can buy the Blinder M25's and M45's for a good price now, if a low price is what your looking for. Good luck with your research and I hope you find the right fit for your car. OH!! by the way make sure you pick up the Laser Veil G4, regardless of which jammer you go with. Laser Veil improves performance with all Laser jammers. Its a great product and has been tested and proven by every independent tester out there.
