New Cobra SPX Series Now Available

We now carry the new Cobra SPX-7800BT Radar Detector

The new SPX Series is the culmination of Cobra’s over 30 years of experience in building quality, high-performance, radar/laser detectors. The SPX Series combines following cutting-edge technology to achieve its supercharged performance – nearly doubling the detection range of its predecessors:

• Ultra-low-noise, signal ampli fiers that once were affordable only to military systems
• Low-microwave-loss circuitry utilizing gold-plated circuit boards
• Use of ip-chip Mixer/Multiplier diodes in packages that were once unattainable
• First Local Oscillator Transistor (Super-low-noise, high-mobility J-FET) that has been chosen to optimize signal gain, output power, and low noise characteristics over its frequency range
• Powerful CPU that enables sweeping of the entire police radar band spectrum in less than 240 milliseconds
Looks great on paper especially with the built in Bluetooth chip to connect to both Android & Apple devices.  We will have to do some testing to see if Cobra finally came out with something that could compete with the Escort & Beltronics detectors.

New Escort Laser Shifter Pro Laser Jammer

I am still baffled that the new Escort Laser Shifter Pro is a re-branded Laser Interceptor Laser Jammer with the Escort name on it.  With all of Escort's resources I really was hoping that the new Laser Shifter Pro would be a new product to the market that would fully integrate with their Escort & Beltronics radar detectors.

Instead they released a stand alone product which will retail for slightly above the retail price of the current Laser Interceptor laser jammer.  The only good thing is that the Laser Shifter Pro will be sold through all authorized dealers so basically every dealer could not sell the Laser Interceptor under the Escort Name.

We will test as soon as possible but I could only guess it would perform exactly the same as the current Laser Interceptor systems and if that is the case that leaves AL Priority as the current leader in Laser Jamming technology.
