I have been looking at the information on this forum and elsewhere, and before I buy anything I would like to check a few things please.
I am in England and have an SUV (Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon, a.k.a. just the Toyota Land Cruiser elsewhere in the World) that I would like to protect.
The Laser Park Pro has my attention. It seems to be at least as good as any other system (and better than most), and has the advantage of functioning, and being sold as, a parking sensor. That could be very valuable; one guy recently recieved the first conviction here for using a laser jammer and received a £5,000 ($10,000 US) fine, had to pay £1,000 ($2,000 US) costs and was banned from driving for a year for "attempting to pervert the course of justice". Ouch!
So I am looking for a system that passes as a parking sensor and/or garage door openter, is discreet when fitted (the police say that all traffic cops have been trained on what to look for to identify laser jammers) and doesn't (hopefully) trigger an error message on the laser gun. That is important. The anti-speeding crusade has got pretty insane here. The lengths the cops will go to to catch you are amazing. In the above case, for example, when the cop with the laser gun couldn't get a reading (and presumably got an error message), although they didn't stop the car at the time, the police later visited the driver at home where they examined the car and found the jammer. After the guilty verdict the Police Chief described drivers who use laser jammers as "dangerous lawbreakers". Self-righteous little b******. (Oh, did I mention that the senior traffic cop in another region was recently caught dong 90 mph in a 60 mph zone whilst on vacation? They "haven't decided" whether to prosecute him yet...)
Is the LPP system a good choice for what I am looking for, or is there a better system?
I am also wondering about the setup on an SUV. I was kind of hoping that a single sensor at each end of the vehicle would be OK, but I gather that this might not be enough for my vehicle. Would I need two sensors at the front and another two at the back? Would that provide enough coverage to pretty much guarantee not being caught, or would I need to use Veil and anti-laser plate covers as well? (They are a problem in themselves; they lay the user open to potential charges of "attempting to pervert the course of justice - i.e. the same charges as for using a jammer, and they are relatively easy to spot when close if you know what to look for.)
I am also wondering about fitting multiple sensors. From what I have read the LPP system has two ports, so can handle two separate sensors. If I need a four-sensor setup (two at each end) does that mean that I need two separate LPP sender units, and if so would I have to have two separate head units inside the passenger compartment?
Sorry for the long post, but if you have read this far and can help I hope you will take the time to reply.
