I have been researching radar detectors and laser jammers. The information out there is overwhelming. This forum seems to have very good information, but some of the keywords and abbreviations fly over my head!
So I am seeking your advice; but first, here is my background:
I've recently got a 2010 Nissan GTR (Gun Metallic). I live in Vancouver, British Columbia, and my understanding is that lasers are common here. I am not sure about the particular types (but if anyone knows, it would be great to share that info). I am also not totally naive about hi-tech or lasers. In fact, my on-going PhD thesis is on lasers! But I still haven't caught up with most of the jargon in this forum (JTG?).
Anyways, any comments about a decent radar detection and laser jamming solution would be much appreciated. I like it to be mostly quite, yet decently reliable (I understand these two traits might be somewhat exclusive). In terms of the price, I hope to keep it around $1K (maybe a bit above, but hopefully not too much) -- that is unless I can see considerable value paying more.
My research led me to Escort Passport 9500ci which includes ZR4 Laser Shifters. I really like the nice integration of the entire thing, and also the small interfaces that can be well integrated into the car. I've also found it on eBay for $1100.
But then I came across a thread in this forum and I can see some strong opinions against a GTR owner with ZR4 shifters!!! (ok, apparently I cannot post a link to that thread since I'm new, but here is how you can find it; Google: "Thread Interesting ZR4 Performance on a Nissan R35 GTR")
Honestly, I haven't quite figured out why there was such strong reactions to that idea, but it was quite amusing given that I was going for that same combination!
Thanks for reading so far, and please share your advice with me.
