    Default ZR3, throw away and buy ZR4?

    I have a ZR3 on a modified 1967 MGBGT and am wondering about what you guys think of it's effectiveness with today's lidar technology? Should I abandon it and buy a new ZR4? A friend was moving my ZR3 from my old Jaguar and, like a moron, cut the cable connecting the front units to the main junction. Where is a good place to get a replacement cable. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Sell and get either a Blinder Mx7 or Laser Interceptor.

    ZR4 is no better than the ZR3 with the exception that ZR4 addresses stealth mode on the Laser Atlanta I believe. Go with LI or Blinder.

    Escort Jammers blow. To be plain and simple, haha sorry to be the bear of bad news. You will get owned, they are a false sense of security. Go with LI or Blinder like everyone else said. Nice ride btw.

    Thanks for the information! I will start putting money aside for an LI. Where is the best place to buy an LI?

    If you are going to trash it, can you send it to me. I'd like to do some mem-tek type mods to it.

    Ok, So what is the problem with the ZR-3 / ZR-4 system. Yes, I have read the "Guys of LIDAR Shootout" If I understand correctly, The Zr-4 is a ZR-3 with updated firmware. Am I correct in that the ZR-3 / ZR-4 could not have there firmware (Program) updated. Or did the Zr-4 use different heads or different laser diodes.

    I have a brand new ZR-3 still in the box. Would love to see if it can be made a effective jammer for a small target like a motorcycle. (Oh I have a LI too) but love to mod things. Tnx
