Default LaserShifter Pro versus other Jammers/Shifters

Hello! Just recently installed a 9500ci on my car. It only came with the standard shifters and not the LaserShifter Pros so I am contemplating getting some other jammers. I have read everything I can find on the three choices below - can someone please give me a definitive recommendation on what's the best option from them?

1. LaserShifter Pro bridge + sensers
2. Comptitor's product + sensors running side by side with 9500ci
3. Second Competitor's product running with 9500ci

MODERATOR: I have edited your post so that it is consistent with the forum's policies. Please be aware that listing competitors' product isn't allowed on the Escort Radar Forum. The ERF is for the support of Escort's products and customers, exclusively.

EscortRadar has previously posted that the company will soon be releasing new ZR5 shifter system that will use the same shifting technology as the Max Ci and Max Ci 360 as well.

Will the new shifting system work with the 9500ci and the Beltronics STi?

Thanks for the info. Do you know if it will be compatible with 9500ci?

I'll have to leave this to EscortRadar to reply to your questions, since he is the official Escort representative on the forum. As product manager, he probably has a lot more information about about the ZR5 and integration with the 9500ci.

The ZR5 will not interface with your 9500ci, it would be operated separately from the 9500ci.

We should have ZR5 on our website later this week. The price is $849.95.

Any insight on if this price will be for a dual, triple, etc? Will voice alerts with gun identification be optional or standard or available at all?

ZR5 includes two sensors and can have up to four sensors installed in any configuration (eg 2 front, 2 back; 3 front, 1 back ; 4 front, 0 back, etc).

ZR5 has voice and tone alerts without gun identification. That will not be an option.

ZR5 will interface with select Escort and Beltronics radar detectors. We will post more information about it when we release it to our websites.
