    Anyone into Countermeasures? V1, CD Stealth Mount, V1 Remote mute, LI Quad gen 8.

    Here is my almost complete setup which includes what is in the title. I only have the Escort external speaker left to install and I will probably use it for the Trapster voice alerts.



    Front Sensors.

    Rear Sensors.

    CD Inside vent.


    As said in the video I moved the Droid X mount (Akron, very nice mount and cheap to) to the center vents so that I can record with it until I get myself a dedicated camera mount.

    EDIT/ Actually below rearview now.



    Switches Installed

    Trapster is a Droid App using reports and your GPS. It uses low-med-high confidence color coding and shows, live police, mobile speed cameras, combo cameras, red light cameras, speed cameras, checkpoints and known police hot spots and filters can be set

    Re: Anyone into Countermeasures? V1, CD Stealth Mount, V1 Remote mute, LI Quad gen 8

    I have found that the absolute best "countermeasures" are your eyes and brain. Get the big picture when you drive, don't just look three feet in front of your hood. Watch what other drivers do well ahead of you, watch what they do behind you, watch what the big truck drivers are doing. An officer who knows what he is doing and also knows how to properly use his equipment can easily defeat electronic countermeasures, but will have a more difficult time catching someone who is actually driving.

    Yes, I'm a po-po. Been one for a very long time. I've lost count of how many drivers I've popped who were relying on "countermeasures" instead of driving habits.

    ^^^ This is true! I dont have anything in my car and I rarely get poped just because I pay attention. You get the occosional meet one at the top of a hill. Thats what got me the other day. Crested a hill the same time he did. Luckily I was driving nice and was only 55 in a 45 (no ticket). I usually take the hills at 80 because at 84 you get some air. I look at every car coming at me and I watch what comes down the on ramp behind me. Being aware of your suroundings is the best for not only avoiding a ticket, but avoiding accidents and potential hazards on the road. Its a good habbit to get into.

    I've never used countermeasures, don't know much about the laser quad thing you got there how does it work? I have to say the best thing for me in avoidance has been taking up motorcycle riding and going through the safety courses, etc. Once you get all those lessons in your head about constant scanning, anticipating potential threats, watching cars ahead, behind, and to the side, you start doing this in the car as well just out of habit. I'm always scanning while driving and haven't had any issues in years, except for that "excessive display of acceleration" stop but they let me go anyway, wasn't speeding really.

    try that in jersey and you would have a good handful of tickets. we have officers hiding on bridges, overpasses, ditches, roads parallel to the highway.... it a mess. my 9500 has earned its keep. im happy i get to help pay their salary to sit and sleep in their cars all day. must be nice.

    I know it was already mentioned below but they are various platforms it can be used on.

    V1=$400
    CD=$40
    LJ Quad=$1100
    Various items like mount, mute=$100

    The LJ is the best that is available er the best company the HP (High powered) heads are actually the best. Check out youtube there are a lot of encounters filmed. The best thing though is to know your LEO's because in some areas LIDAR is all that is used and in others RADAR is king.

    Word. But it is out for other phones as well.

    Its a neat little app but certainly not a stand alone measure.

    Couldn't agree more. The best countermeasure is your eyes is something that is preached by true enthusiasts. A common misconception in the noobie CM world is that a Cobra makes you invincible!

    It is a combo of all tech items PLUS your eyes, a good rabbit, and knowing when to slow up (upcoming crest of hill, curves, brake lights etc). It actually makes me laugh when I start to slow up for an upcoming likely hiding spot and then I look at Trapster to see someone has reported it as a "Known enforcement point"...

    You know just to add something to this. I am probably such a safe driver because I am ALWAYS hawking the road looking for LEO's!

    LIDAR Jammers work by receiving the laser guns pulse, processing it as a threat via the CPU, and then sending out the matching pulse to block it from getting back to the LEO's gun. Now as this is all happening in a millisecond obviously all while you are getting down to the PSL and killing the jammers (JTK concept). This way the LEO gets his reading and you just cruise on by and he moves on to the next potential revenue source.

    I see quite a few encounter videos coming out of jersey and they are indeed very sneaky. You ought to look into jammers as well.

    Thanks for taking a look guys. If you get interested check out radardetector.net it is where the guys of lidar hang out and a TON of good information for the community. No I am not affiliated with them other than being a knowledge sucking member!

    i will be looking into a jammer as well. its the sort of thing you rarely use but it only has to save you once and then you appreciate having it.

    Words from Christ himself. Lulz but you are absolutely right. BTW Laser Interceptor is currently the best on the market and I can get you 10% off if you really are interested. Blinder is 2nd and still a good product but in all the research (A TON) I did before purchasing LI is currently king. It follows though that their price reflects that.

    Meh. Learn how to drive, keeping your eyes open and then add countermeasures. It's better than using just either...
