    Everything you need to know about the new AL Priority

    There is a lot of scattered information on the AL Priority so I will just keep one main post with all the information you could possible need. It will be a work in progress and I will keep adding to the main post over several edits.

    Picture of the AL Priority:

    Advantages over previous AL models and competition:

    • AL is the original successor to the Worlds' First laser based multipurpose parking sensor
    • features the smallest sensors in its ultimate performance class
    • superior laser detection powered by AL patented technology
    • extreme resistance to engine noise and laser interferences
    • holds the widest protection angle (up to 15H 15V)
    • laser detection power (coverage) improved by 20% over previous RX2 model
    • power of laser detection at least 40-100% greater than power of detection of any competitive product

    AL Priority brings you Industry's First:

    • Dual processor Design running at over 100 MHz
    • User friendly internet upgrades and set-up via USB flash drive
    • USB flash drive Theft protection Key
    • 5 sensor connection with front and rear sensor discrimination
    • Innovative rear & side sensor cable exit
    • Laser cruise-control filtering sensor for factory LCC equipped cars
    • Compatibility with many third party devices (Radar, GPS antennas)
    • Advanced self-test function detects disconnection or malfunction
    • Fully effective from 10V to 17V power supply

    Add On Modules Some already here and some under development

    AntiLaser ALP Connect – Wireless control via Smartphone w/Graphical Display & Voice Alerts (Available For Android & Apple)
    AntiLaser RG Modules - Radar Detection Integration with the following Radar Antenna's (Beltronics STi-R Plus , Escort 9500CI, Radenso HD+ and Multiple Net Radar Antennas)
    AntiLaser Hi-Fi ControlSet – HiFi voice communication module for adding voice alerts through external speaker
    AntiLaser GPS Antenna - GPS Antenna for defining speed limits for Laser & Radar
    AntiLaser Display - Graphic Display to make alerts easier to understand (Future Release)

    US Confirmed Retail Prices

    Single $499.95
    Dual $749.95
    Triple $999.95
    Quad $1249.95
    Five $1499.95

    Options: (Retail Prices)

    Net Radar Front Radar Add-On Package $499.95
    Net Radar Front & Rear Radar Add-On Package $899.95
    Beltronics Sti-R Antenna Add-On Package $499.95
    Bluetooth Module (Apple Smartphone Connector) - $99.95
    RG Module (Connects to Various External Remote Antennas) - $99.95
    HI-FI Module (Voice Alerts w/ External Speaker) - $99.95
    AL Display (Visual Display) - $ Not Yet Known (Future Product)

    Depending on your ideal setup you might want some options but their might be different ways to achieve the same end result For Example if you have an Apple iPhone and you want a visual display and voice alerts you do not necessarily need the AL Display or HI-Fi Module because you can achieve both these functions using your iPhone with just the Bluetooth Module. The iPhone App with give an awesome display with voice alerts and also allow you to change your AL Priority settings. If you go this route you do not even need to install the regular controller because you can turn your AL Priority on and off with the iPhone app.

    Retail Boxes... They are sold separately. So if you bought a Dual for example you would receive one CPU Box and 2 Sensor Boxes. It makes stocking items much easier for the dealers and we do not need to stock separate systems with different head counts.

    AL Priority will be more expensive than the competition but we will put together a list of over 30 reasons why they they are worth more....

    Important Websites:

    AL Priority Programming Page: http://www.alpriorityupdate.com
    AL Priority USA Page: http://www.alpriorityusa.com

    AL Priority Users Manual

    Important Notice: When you receive your AL Priority it will operate only as Parking Sensors, A Blinking Green LED means that you are only in Parking Mode. If you want to utilize the Laser Interference Notification and Laser Defense Notification you need to download the latest firmware from the AL Priority Update Website. After you update the firmware you can go to Setup and configure the advanced settings:

    Setup ---> Enter
    Region ---> N/S America or your specific region
    Advanced Options ---> PDC + LID

    This will display all advanced options. Once you make all your setting adjustments hit Save & Download, Put setup file on a USB Memory Stick and insert into your ALP for programming.

    Frequent Q&A's:

    Front or Rear - How to know where is the laser source that AL Priority has detected?
    Until the HiFi Module or Smartphone app is available which will verbally inform you of the direction you can tell by the LED Color. The color of LED during laser alert shows you if detected laser source is in front (RED LED) or behind you (YELLOW LED). To have this working properly, front sensors must be plugged into the F socket, and rear sensors into R socket of your AL Priority Control Box

    What type of a USB flash drive to use with the AL Priority?
    You may use any USB flash drive as long as it is not corrupted and it is properly formatted to FAT32 or FAT16 (NTFS is not supported). Preferably, the USB flash drive should be cleared (emptied) before use.

    How to know if your AL Priority system upgrade was successful?
    Once you plug in the USB flash drive with a new firmware into the USB socket of your AL Priority Control Box, multicolor LED on the Control Set will start to blink in different colors. The upgrading will take around 60 seconds. It may take longer if the USB flash drive memory was not cleared of other contents. After the system upgrades to the new firmware it will restart. The ALP system will not start to upgrade if the file is corrupted, or if it is not named correctly, or if it contains present or older firmware version than one that has already been installed.

    Which Apple Devices support the ALP Connect Bluetooth Module
    Short answer is devices which support Bluetooth 4.0. ALP Connect Requires iOS 6.1 or Later. Compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (3rd Generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular, iPad Air WiFi + Cellular, and iPad mini with Retina display Wi-Fi + Cellular. The app is optimized for iPhone 5. The ALP Connect app will work on the current iPod's and standard iPad Mini but because they lack GPS there will not be any speed information displayed.

    - can AL detect lidar and automute to prevent jtg? any product on market have this feature? or is everybody manual mute?
    - so i can just buy an stir+ antenna and plug it into the r/g module? sweet! i would love to hang a stir antenna on the back bumper.
    - can i run two r/g modules on the same AL control box?
    - can i get away with one sensor in front and one in rear for a s2000 application?

    we have covered this before, and from that discussion i think you checked the pin outs on the li cable to see if they would interchange for fitting the alp, to help the change over to alp's, without the major cable re - routing, and that they were not interchange able, so just wondering if at some stage an adapter lead could be used ?

    I would sell the LI and just buy the ALP. The ALP head are so much easier to hide. You can't see it in my MX5 grill until you look for them. I am sorry I didn't order the 3rd head for the back. I hope I can get the same pricing on the head when I order the Bel head in a few weeks when it is ready for sale.

    ^ - ONE Sensor in the rear will not be enough to protect you no matter how small your car.
    Trust me!

    You can cut off the RJ45 connector and crimp on a new one with the wire position adjustments if you must use the same wiring

    Thx, that's good to know much easier than routing new cable through the fire wall and the rear tail gate, Asuming the wire dia is close to the same in the Li , think I feel upgrade coming soon

    AL Priority cables are thinker and more insulated but they use the same Din Connector but they are wired differently. Should not be too difficult using a meter to trace the different pin-outs.
