As a new member here I just wanted to introduce myself and say how great it is to have a forum for those of us who dispise L-Guns. After two tickets in as many weeks, I bought and installed both the 9500IX and Blinder M47 systems in my 2008 Infiniti M35S. The Escort was purchased from Best Buy and works great. The Blinder was purchased from...
Blinder USA (blinderextreme)
The Blinder M47 installation took about 4 hours main due to the challange of placing the front units behind the lower honeycomb grill and then notching out the material in front of the units so they have a clear field of view. I'll upload pictures if anyone is interested in my installation. The rear units were a piece of cake compared to the front. Anyway, once the wiring was completed I followed the instructions to sync the heads and update the latest firmware 2.6. The software recognized my CPU just fine and load the software, however, I did not experience the beeping and flashing of the light as each head updated as described in the documentation. I ran the repair and reloaded the firmware once more and still nothing. The Parking feature works fine but how do I confirm and test the heads for jamming? I certainly do not want to test them against the next COP without some assurance they are working. Is there anyone in the Houston, TX area that has a LASER gun to test the installation?
