Escort Shifter Laser Jammer

Hi there,

I recently installed the Escort laser jammer on my E90.
Anyone perhaps done the same to their vehicle ?

There are some poeple who have put it on other cars. A member of our local car forum has one on his CSL, another member in his 325Ci, and another member on his 130i.

Where did you buy yours from?

I bought mine from a guy in Florida.

I think the website is www.laseradar.co.za

Paid R3000 for it.

Just curious to know if anyone else has installed it, and it it works 100% everytime. I know you have to get the positioning right for the diodes to work properly.

Escort laser jammer is used to jam traffic police laser guns.
That way they don't get a reading on you.

Actually its calles Escort Shifter Z3.

It might be illegal in your state..you would have to check this with someone.

I haven't taken out pictures yet...will do so when I get a chance.

Laser jammers

In South Africa as far as I know there is no law against using Jamming devices. There is however a law against obstructing the ends of justice - whatever that may mean.

I have 2 makes of laser speed cameras. I'll setup the camera in "test" mode - that means infringements are not being recorded, but measurements are made for calibration purposes.

If you want to see if it works, contact me.

From an engineering perspective however I doubt it! The SNR for these units are pretty good. Good enough at least to overcome reflected sun light. But I am open to be convinced and proven otherwise.

....and by the way the cameras record "artificial interference" as well

Cheers

Hi guys I had the Bel 904 fitted for the past 4 years to 3 different cars (Has the same 3 eyes but different control unit-the Shifter is a better jammer) and have only received 2 fines since having it fitted. I am convinced that it was due to the short distance and the unit could not jam in time. This device has saved me thousands. Well worth the out lay. Got it from the same place and have only had to replace the rear eye recently (water damage at the car wash with high pressue washer) Glad to answer any questions or do a test ?
