I installed a Led triggered by the voice of the Coyote. Requires some parts but it really does the job. Interested, let me know...

Does Belgium have a coyote problem?
We could use an Armadillo or opossum alarm system in Florida. At least you can the the deer's eyes glowing just before the splat.

"Coyote" is a cop radar notification system ;-)

I'm an idiot.
Consider my apology.
It's an European product. no apologies needed ;-)
I'm 36years old and I've never seen a real coyote in my whole life ;-)))

We have coyotes coming out our asses around here as well as cops crawling up there.

Uh yeah, same here but they seize your vehicle for one week if you are 40km/h over the limit. AND that is easy enough to do when they move transitions zones on the ever present construction zones on the highways out here.

All the more reason to be happy I just finished wiring up my Adaptive Motorcycle radar detector that I got for Christmas. I think I will get the optional laser jammer as well, likely a wise investment. Impound and towing, with the fines will cost you over $1800, laser jammer is $500. Rather a no brainer eh? :headscratch

With that and my new speedo healer, I SHOULD be ok, but always have on the GPS too, and if in a major centre that warns me if I am exceeding the posted limit for the road I am on. It is a pretty cool feature.

Hopefully it will all help to avoid a ticket for not paying close enough attention.

Legal Speeding dot com has the HARD LED display unit that is wireless and fits inside the helmet. I have the 1st generation and LS is now working on a new and improved unit.

This is the 1st gen, 2nd gen will have better battery life and both transmitter/receiver will be waterproof.

I thought use of a detector was illegal in Canada. If that's the case and you get caught using one with a jammer too, I'd have to imagine they'll not only impound & tow your bike, the fines will be much heavier. Be careful.

So how well does it work? Mostly, during day. And is it bothersome at night? How long is battery good for? How's the mounting?

I have bluetooth headset so already got stuff mounted in helmet...


I have an Escort Redline and it's speaker blew possibly because I had volume on full all the time or that I was using stereo ear plugs. Can't get answer (not even a reply in 3 emails asking) from Escort on why it blew (was under warranty, though) but on their website it says using stereo ear plugs can cause ground loops so it damages speaker circuit. So, got a cheap ass ground loop isolater and wired into aux of my bluetooth headset but it won't sound when I'm listening to music. Been looking into a Mixit product or similar or a screamer speaker wired on bike...

On the bike the volume is at max and I can still hear it even at 70mph and I always wear ear plugs. The LED works during the days just fine and augments the audio well. At night you can turn the LED away from your eyes (its really bright and interferes with vision at night/only when you get a radar signal otherwise its not illuminating) or you can use the Escort smart cord warning indicator and turn the HARD off in the helmet. Thats what I do. The Smart cord indicator also flashes red and I have mine mounted just above the dash on the right.

If you turn off the HARD every time (helmet receiver) the battery lasts a hundred hours for sure. It uses 2-CR2032 batteries.

The new one coming to market is pretty sophisticated, battery life 250+ hours, auto off and can mount it on the outside of the helmet because its H20 proof. The version I have is mounted in the chin area and does not interfere with my Blueant Interphone mic and speakers.

The red/green LEDS in the pic are the escort smart cord indicators I use at night, they are always on anyway. Green LED is power on, when I get a radar hit the red LED flashes



I think www.webbikeworld.com has a review on the HARD, or google it.
