    ALP Connect (Android Version for AL Priority) Officially Released

    This thread will be for the discussion of the ALP Connect for Android Users. Please note that ALP Connect Android will ONLY work on Android Phones using Android 4.3 or higher and the phone needs to support Bluetooth 4.0. Bluetooth 4.0 consumes very little energy and will have very little drain on your battery. I have been running the Final a few days now and have left the app in the background and have not noticed any change to my battery life. When I start my car it immediately connects and when I leave the car it disconnects. I want to take a moment to also thank all of the Beta users that helped get this product ready.

    You will also require ALP Firmware: 4.5.1 or higher. 4.5.1 is being released today.

    You can find ALP Connect in the Google Play store... Here is the direct link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ity.alpconnect

    Official Description:

    ALPConnect™ application is developed to add audio and visual notifications as well as to allow you to control your AL Priority® Multipurpose Laser System over a Bluetooth® v 4.0 Low Energy supported smartphone.

    Watch Laser and Radar alerts from your AL Priority system like never before!
    Identify front hit from a rear hit.
    Get voice alerts and voice identifications of each Laser type encountered.
    Command your AL Priority over a touchscreen of your smartphone.
    Record history of Laser/Radar encounters with date, time, your speed of travel and exact type of Laser/Radar encountered.

    With this app. wired AL Priority Control Set is no longer necessary.
    Your smartphone becomes the ALP user interface and the only thing visible in the cabin of your car.
    Remove your smartphone when leaving the car and no-one will be the wiser about your AL Priority installation.

    The app. connects wireless over a Bluetooth to your ALPConnect Bluetooth Module equipped (sold separately) AL Priority System.

    The app. is free, you may download it from the store and check out it's DEMO mode even if you have not yet acquired the BlueTooth module for you ALP system.

    Please Note: This app is fully functional only when connected to the AL Priority laser/radar detector system. To purchase or inquire about AL Priority systems or an optional ALPConnect BT Module go to www.alpriority.com.

    This app. can run in the background to extend the life of your battery. Enable notifications on your device to receive alerts while the app. is in the background.

    Before looking at an Escort Radar Detector you should really check out Uniden Detectors.. Uniden R1 & R3 are the best performing radar detectors for the money.

    Was hoping I could use this on my Android Tracfone, but it runs 4.1 and Bluetooth 3.0. Bummer...

    Sorry... It needs a minimum of 4.3 or later and BT 4.0 support. Check with the Android Forums out there and see if you can push your own upgrade on it. I was able to update my 4 year old Galaxy Nexus to 4.4 with Rom's that were out there.

    Great news for ALP users.

    FWIW:
    I ran some of the later Betas (still am), and it has worked excellent for me. I would expect the official release experience to be as good, if not better.

    I have found very few members so far with old phones that would not work.

    My S3 works fine mate, but I never checked it on 4.4.2.
    I installed a custom ROM on mine so it runs kitkat and ALP runs sweet

    I am not an ALP Connect user. However, I installed the ALPConnect app on my Nexus 5 with Android Lollipop to see how it would work in demo mode. Just want to let you guys know that when I hit SCAN, the app sometimes crashes, and I get a notification that "Unfortunately, ALPConnect has stopped". This happened about 2-3 times, but seems to have stopped occurring now.
