The cheetah wireless kit has been working perfectly so very pleased with it so far.
Hmmm. Can you say "upgrade"? Might have to look into what the new version has.
One issue with all laser receivers I have found and spoke with Cliff at LI about this is durability. The cost to manufacture to military specs is prohibitive. I have had several other laser receivers start to fail after a year or so. My LI receivers are currently at a year and a half with no issues. But it is an issue I am concerned about.

Good to know. How do know if the sensors are starting to fail?

Not sure with LI but my last one you could tell it went bad when I got a ticket.

You can (and I suppose you should) test the sensor/jammer with a laser source. I have not heard an official recommendation as to how often...good questions for Cliff or the LI forum.
