Last week I received my brand new 8500 x50 blue. I have been bouncing around these forums without a name for quite some time learning everything I can. Unfortunately, I guess I had a false sense of confidence after getting it and hitting some speed traps with my detector alerting me way before. Last night on i-87 i was hit with a laser doing 87 in a 65. ( ouch) thats number 3 for me ticket wise. The officer was very high and mighty and had a smirk on his face when he saw my detector and asked me if it picks up lasers ( damn prick ). I never want to be in this situation again. I shouldn't have been going as fast as I was alone on the highway but ill take credit for that stupidity.
I am still in court about another ticket so I still have my license as of this point. My question ultimately comes down to settings and laser jammers.
1. What settings do you feel work best in NY state? Just looking for your personal opinion before I make my own. Right now I am leaning towards Pop Off and X off.
2. What laser jammer would you recommend? I am leaning towards the Shifter zr3 because of integration but the more I read I get pulled towards the LI or one of the Blinders. Does anyone have any of these combos and what do they recommend?
3. What advantages does hardwiring my x50 provide?
Any other information you think would help me would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance!
