This thread is confusing. If I call my installer to upgrade, what will he need to do? Remove old front shifters and wires directly to control box? Mount new shifters and run wiring to the shifter control box? Run shifter control box to main radar unit under dash? Would be nice if there were instructions posted. I want to know if he is going to be expected to spend two hours with each of my cars or 4. Makes a difference.

And when I upgrade the software for the shifters, will I be plugging my laptop into a new input on the shifter box, or is it all handled through the radar upgrade port under my dash?

Thanks.

You can read the LSP Upgrade installation manual here:

http://escortradarforum.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=10590

Basically, the original ZR4 front shifters are replaced with the LSP shifters. The LSP shifters are plugged into the bridge box, and bridge box is plugged into the existing 9500ci (or STiR Plus, or ZR4 CPU box).

To update the firmware for the LSP, you'll connect the laptop to the bridge box.

TBNTX answered your other questions.

There is an update port on the bridge box that you will plug a USB data transfer cable into in order to update the shifters. Updating the system using the USB port you already have installed will not update the shifters.

Can I leave the original rear laser diffuser in its place if I upgrade the fronts?

Yes, and that's exactly my configuration.

Hi All, new to this forum. LQQKING to buy the old laser shifters, from anybody doing this upgrade. Have a customer whose wife has broken both of the units off her car and they are no longer serviceable.

TIA
Don

Just FYI, my installer (Abt electronics) called Escort and was told the single shifter upgrade package is unavailable...

Forum policies don't allow for selling items directly, but I have an idea. Check you PMs, ddosmann.

Both the individual ShifterPro and ShifterPro Pack (two shifters) are currently available directly from us. Abt should also be able to get them.
