Escort ZR4 Laser Shifter (NIB)

I bought this last year but now realize I'm NEVER going to get around to installing it. Kit is new in the box but I've lost the cover that has the artwork on it- everthing else is there and brand new. Cheapest I've seen them online is $359
Will take the 1st $250 shipped. I haven't taken any pictures yet but if you would like to see some, I'll be glad to forward them on request.

Cheers

Jason

Thanks for the product quote Byron. Always looking for another P-Car but realistically, it will be another year before I can convince my wife it's a good idea

Cocacola- Glad you asked. Laser shifters (unlike radar jammers) are legal (in most states) and actually work. Essentially, the Escort consists of a base unit with three shifter packs (two mount on the front, one mounts in the rear). With ANY radar detector- if you hear "laser warning"- it's not "if" they got you, it's "how fast was I going". When a laser speed measurement device is targeted on your vehicle, the operator "bounces" a laser off of your vehicle. The laser speed measurement device then measures the speed of the targeted vehicle based on that reflected light. The Escort works by essentially flooding the return signal with a full spectrum of laser light back to the operator- think of trying to pick out a candle when someone is shining a spotlight at you from the same direction. The Escort gives you time to verify your speed is complaint with the posted speed. You can google "radar roy escort zr4 review" which takes you to a sight that has videos of actual tests by an independent expert.
