    Default Install Question: How level is level?

    Hi, I just had a ZR3 installed but the heads aren't *perfectly* level. Will it still be effective if the transponders are slightly tilted? I guess a little less than 10 degrees or so. I always wondered why the orientation affects performance anyway? Any advice is appreciated.

    You want them as level as possible.
    At a distance, 10 degrees could equate to a lot. The jammer could be firing at the ground, or over the head of the targeting laser gun.

    Oh ok. Does it make a difference if the transponders are tilted right to left, instead of front to rear/ rear to front?

    Per Escort: They should be perfectly level to the road and face directly foward, not looking left or right. The Led's within the shifters are already positioned for proper coverage.

    It's hard to do with a level since they are tapered!
