If you are looking for the best defense against speeding tickets, a custom-installed radar detector from California Car Sounds and Tint in Campbell is your best choice. Many people ask us if the additional investment involved in a custom-installed is worthwhile. There are no drawbacks, but there are certainly many benefits. Read on to learn how a portable detector differs from one that we can integrate with your vehicle.
Radar Detection Performance
A with any radio frequency transmission or reception, a larger antenna always works better. In a custom-installed radar detector, the dedicated front and optional rear radar units are often much larger than the entire chassis of a portable solution. Many new receivers have two dedicated receivers that are tuned to improve sensitivity and reduce background noise. The result is amazing long-range performance and earlier warnings when speed traps are detected.
Laser Detectors versus Laser Shifters
Hands-down, the biggest benefit of a custom-installed radar detector is its compatibility with a laser shifter or defuser system. Portable systems with laser detection alert you when someone has taken a speed measurement of your vehicle. At this point, stomping on the brakes is only going to confirm to the officer that you were speeding. A custom-installed laser defense system receives the laser signal from the gun. It then retransmits a high-power distorted message that confuses the police system. You can slow your vehicle down quickly, then turn off the laser shifter. This will give the officer a reading that will keep you safe.
If you are like us, you don’t like clutter. We can certainly provide clean and tidy portable laser and radar detection system installations with custom brackets and concealed wiring, but the unit will still be in plain sight. Custom-installed detection solutions are nearly invisible unless you know where to look. We typically mount the front and rear radar receivers behind plastic grilles and bumpers, and compact laser transceivers are easy to blend into openings in the front of your vehicle.
Inside your car, truck, or SUV, everything is hidden out of sight. Depending on the solution you choose, we can mount a small display or control panel, or simply conceal a pair of LEDs in your instrument cluster. The main system and the speaker are up under your dash– out of the way.
Portable radar detectors are unfortunately a prime target for thieves. They are still an expensive product, and they are easy to resell. A custom-installed radar detector system takes a skilled technician to install. This process takes hours, including the need to run wiring throughout your vehicle. There is no point in trying to attempt to steal one, or even a part of a system.
