Just ran into a Check FR error on the screen that appeared for about 10 seconds and then disappeared. If it appears again Escort says I should send it in. That would make 4 trips to the shop since January, when I purchased it. I kind of think I should be getting a refund??? I asked for one several days ago but they dug their heels in.

If you got that error I would send it in and let them have a look.

PM EscortRadar. 4 times is excessive, it needs to be replaced.

It is common for CB radios that are using linear amplifiers to trigger laser alerts. It doesnt take much, 40 watts will usually set one off.

If you live in an area where jammers are not illegal I highly recommend the upgrade.
since you can only have 2 shifters with the ZW5, do you run 1 front 1 rear or 2 front and just not worried about detection/"shifting" in rear? I was thinking about getting them, still doin research though. where I live the LEO like to sit on a bridge onramp, and tag you from behind after you pass them.

Yes, two in the front. Unfortunately the ZW5 doesn't have the capability to add additional heads for the rear.

If that's a concern you can always install the ZR5's. They are hard wired and you'll have a separate device inside as opposed to going through the 360 but you'd be covered both front and rear and won't have to worry.

If you need rear coverage then I would go with a Zr5

They have already replaced the circuit board once in the three trips itís made to the shop. They will not do anything further.

Since using the app regularly, Iíve been warned numerous times of laser reports from others that I know are false. So itís just not me. There is a design flaw that Iíll be writing about in my Wordpress review that will hopefully warn people away who live in tollway areas. Iíve removed the unit from my windshield and replaced it with ďTiny.Ē Tiny does a good job despite absence of arrows.

BTW, the FR message that I received once has not reappeared so it apparently was a one-off. And the false lasers have occurred before and after so they are not related especially in light of my observation that others in the area are reporting false lasers through the app.
