Exclamation Laser ShifterPro Tool software is available

The Laser ShifterPro Tool software is now available on our product registration webpage for the Laser ShifterPro standalone system and Passport 9500ci w/Laser ShifterPro.

The Laser ShifterPro Tool is only compatible with computers using Windows operation system.

Using Laser ShifterPro Tool to change various settings of the Laser ShifterPro and install the latest firmware.
As of 1/22/2014 there have been no firmware updates for the Laser ShifterPro shifters. Your shifters came from the factory with the latest firmware available.

Installation instructions: (also provided on the Tools download page)
Download and extract the Escort Shifter Pro Tool in zip file.

In windows simply right click on the folder and choose, "Extract" or "Extract All" On the next screen (which gives you the option to change the destination path), simply choose "Extract". Now you have the Unzipped folder, which contains multiple files. All of the files MUST remain in the directory for the tool to run.

To run the Laser ShifterPro Tool click on the file named, "Laser Shifter Pro.exe"

To Update Escort Shifter Pro (Standalone unit ONLY - Serial):
You will either need to have a native serial port on your PC or purchase a USB to serial adapter. If you purchase an adapter, it will most likely require the installation of a driver to support the cable. This will either be included via disk with your cable or available for download from the cable manufacturer website.

To Update Escort Shifter Pro (Bridgebox ONLY - USB):
You will just need a standard 2.0 or greater "Type A Male to Mini-B Male USB cable". You will also need to install the Silicon Labs CP2102 Driver found on their website at:

http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/p...cpdrivers.aspx

Make sure to run the proper installer for your operating system:
CP210xVCPInstaller_x86.exe for 32-bit systems
CP210xVCPInstaller_x64.exe for 64-bit systems

I just got mine and the install looks good, I need to test it out nevertheless, also need to purchase two rear diodes eventually just want to see how the front works first. I hope this was worth the investment. The updating process is kinda confusing and I really wished the system would work with escort live. What in the world is going on with EL anyway?

Default Confused as heck

I just got my 9500ci reinstalled with the laser shifter pro, only to fond out that I need a second cable for updating the laser shifter (the other to update camera data with detector too)?!!

I called tech support, 25 and 30 min wait time each time only to be transferred to sales to get more confused. The strings are not any better....the diagram shows a USB port on the laser shifter (I did not see it as I paid the $800 for professional install), but I assume it's a micro usb seeing that escort describes a "Type A Male to Mini-B Male USB cable". The other end must be a regular use as that's what plugs into my laptop?

Why on gods green earth didn't the laser shifter just "piggy back" off the "brain" cable through detector tool? Also after spending $600 for shifter and $1600 for the 9500ci, $800 for install, the data cables couldn't be included? Listed as an accessory for unit?

A better, clear explanation would be great...what cable do I need and where does each side plug in.
