    Default Laser Mimic question

    One bit of information on the mimic that I never noticed being posted anywhere is the option for software upgrades. Did anything ever come out as that goes? Sorry if it's been posted somwhere else, I searched and couldn't find it.

    The best person to ask would be Chris, JTW. I'm not exactly sure about the units except what he told me and what the current distributer has set forth as plans. So i really don't wanna wanna say anything I'm not sure about but from what Chris told me i was shocked and definitely ready to put money down on a mimic, if the price still stays low

    He told me that it will be upgradable btw

    Yep, the exclusive USA distributor told me it'll be upgradable.

    I would also get a Blinder M20 right now instead of waiting for the Mimic to come out. It's not worth getting a $150.00 laser ticket from a cop because you're waiting to get the Laser Mimic because it's $150.00 cheaper then the blinder.

    Laser's not in heavy use around here yet, so it's not a terribly big concern at the moment. More than the money issue, i'm a little miffed at Blinder Dude's responses to your questions, and that's really making me look more at the mimic. I'll give it until yourself or SML gets some tests done on a final unit, as it sounds like the ones that you're getting are in the pre-release stages. If the Blinder revision issues have been resolved at that time and Blinder is on top, i'll go that route, otherwise, I think the mimic may be a better option for me.

    For those of you who haven't been following along in other threads Compu is talking about my thread in the Blinder Catagory http://www.radardetector.net/Blinder...call-1297t.php

    In the thread we could clearly see that some people had different revision numbers. Blinder dude has said in the past that there weren't any "older version m20" in the USA because Blinder international didn't ship any over until the Laser Atlanta Stealth Mode fix was made. After much consideration I started to believe Leon(Blinder Dude), that is until I realized that Blinder puts revision numbers on the back of their M20's. I posted a thread asking people to post what revision numbers they had and come to find out there were different revision numbers! I was shocked because Leon said there weren't any older version M20's and when I asked him to explain the discrepancy of his statements to the proof we had he just got mad and started cursing.

    It was a legitmate question and Blinder dude simply didn't answer it and decided to attack me instead.

    I usually dont voice my opinion on things like that (the thread and Leons response) but that is outrageous.

    Dont seem like some business owners/managers really know how much customer service represents them. I havent read any post by him and that was the first post ive seen. Bad impression!!!

    why would a new model be offered if nothing were different? :wink:

    no matter, the fact that he offered it is a good thing, just should be more forthcoming about the differences.
