    ALP GPS Antenna's

    We will receive samples next week to test the new ALP GPS antennas. Originally AntiLaser wanted to use a generic GPS antenna's but there were so many differences with these aftermarket antennas and they were wired differently that they did not feel comfortable with using them. To prevent damage to the Radar/GPS Module they decided to go the route of distributing their own GPS Antenna. They will not be expensive and should retail for around $59.95. I will have more information next week.

    With using GPS there are 3 settings to adjust on the ALP Setup site:

    1. Laser Interference Defense mechanism will not be activated unless you are moving at the speed greater then what you define.
    2. Radar detection will not be activated unless you are moving at the speed greater then what you define
    3. Parking alerts will not be given if vehicle is driving at speed above what you define

    You can define different speeds for each of these processes when setting up your ALP on the ALP Setup site: http://www.alpupdate.com

    Thats great news for me ! Horray! I'm huge fan of GPS & Radar module and have stop using radar plug in till GPS antenna arrives then I can test her features out and see how the false alerts are like as when I plugged it in last time lots interferences, I hope the next objective I hope by antilaser is block out or Signal Rejection or Interference Lock,

    Its in my belief where there's a wont there is a way,

    Thanks keep up this good work!

    So let me see if I understand correctly. By adding the gps do I need something else to give me alerts. In other words the GPS is only the antenna so to speak and I need other hardware to pick up the alerts?

    Of course you need an AL Priority System, A GPS antenna is just an antenna and will not do anything on its own.

    Hi,
    Yes I understand you need the ALP which I have. So to clarify, I connect the GPS to the ALP and through the Blue Tooth and IPhone App, it will know I am in Australia and where the speed cameras are? How does it know where the cameras are? Is there some type of database inside it or a database that is uploadd to the iPhone via an update to the App similar to Trapster??.?
    Thanks for your help clarifying

    This has nothing to do with cameras.. Please re-read the first post and it explains the benefits of adding the GPS antenna.
