    Default AL G8 with a custom install radar detector?

    --a small car (Porsche Cayman S)
    --an Escort custom installed radar detector like the SR7
    --AL G8 Dual Head Laser Jammer

    According to Escort tech support, the SR7 will error/alert if it's laser detectors are not connected. But I don't want to use the Escort's laser detectors, I want to use AL G8 detector/jammers instead.

    So, how can someone use an AL G8 with an SR7?

    I don't want false errors, and don't think i have tremendous space on the front end for 2 sets of laser devices (SR7 laser detectors plus AL G8 jammers)

    Are there any other custom install detectors that will allow me to use just the AL G8 detector/jammers?

    The SR7 radar and laser detector will work fine it will just show a error message at the start-up. Also you could just install the Sr7 laser sensors then turn off laser detection on the unit

    My bet is that the AL will not interfere with the SR7 at all - i.e. if you're concerned about the "reflections" from the parking-distance output of the AL continuously falsing the SR7's laser alert, this truly shouldn't be an issue, if my setup (dual LPPs, each of which is flanked by a ZR3 head towards the outboard position) is any indication.

    My only concern, as of this time, would be the separate output from the two jammers eliciting a jam-code, but no-one yet has any solid data on this issue, as in so far as, in particular, the LA is concerned, even the AL/LPP will elicit a jam-code, thus effectively "canceling out" this concern.
