If you are concerned about speeding tickets, a radar detector and laser defense system from Handcrafted Auto Marine and Offroad in Chandler is a wise investment. Whether you’ve let your speed creep up as you’re cruising Interstate 10 to California or missed a speed limit sign as you came into Phoenix on Interstate 17, a radar detector can save you a lot of money and hassle. Let’s take a close look at the solutions we offer and why we are the best choice in Maricopa County.
Radar Detector Options
Police radar is a simple and effective technology that remains popular with several police forces. Whether you’re worried about handheld radar guns or photo radar sites, knowing they are in use means you can manage your speed in those areas. Our long-range radar solutions can detect X, K and Ka band radar as well as MultaRadar CD.
False alarms from vehicle safety systems such as adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring systems are kept to a minimum, thanks to updatable databases. Our systems’ integrated GPS receivers enable you to mark the location of known stationary false alarms from door openers and traffic speed sensors. In short, our solutions stay quiet until you need to react.
Laser Defense Systems
Police lidar guns use a narrowly focused beam of light to measure your vehicle speed. Their accuracy and efficiency make it impossible to adjust your speed once your vehicle has been targeted. Our laser (lidar) defense solutions use advanced signal processing technologies to detect and intercept law enforcement’s laser signal and transmit a signal back to the officer’s gun. This prevents the gun from taking a measurement at all, giving you time to adjust your speed. Once this happens, our state-of-the-art system automatically enters a “jam-to-kill” state, disabling the laser jamming function and enabling the officer to take an accurate reading of your now-legal speed! After a predetermined period of time, the system automatically enters the “jam” mode again so you are again protected from lidar and can continue on your journey worry-free.
Our laser defense solutions are compatible with the next generation of lidar guns such as the dreaded DragonEye and its electronic counter-countermeasure mode. Ensuring that we offer premium, updatable products from such companies as AntiLaser Priority is just one way we help to future-proof our solutions.
The Importance of Proper Integration
If you choose a portable detector solution, we can provide a vehicle-specific mounting bracket to attach the unit to your rearview mirror to keep the interior tidy and free of clutter. We will run the power cable to the proper ignition-controlled power source and conceal the cable behind the interior trim panels. While this solution is quick, cost-effective, portable and can keep you aware of radar threats both in front of you and behind you, these units cannot protect you from lidar and, for some users, can be an unsightly addition to the vehicle.
For those clients who require the best performance and protection while maintaining the integrity and appearance of their vehicle, we offer premium custom-integrated radar and laser defense systems. To execute this type of integration correctly requires advanced knowledge of how these systems work and advanced integration and fabrication techniques to ensure that:
- The laser receivers are mounted perpendicular to the road ahead, perfectly level with the road and with no obstruction to their field of view.
- The laser receivers must be a specific distance from the ground and from each other, while covering the various targets of the vehicle’s front end, such as the headlights.
- The radar antennae must be mounted securely and in such a way that the vehicle body does not hinder their performance.
- The cabling must be terminated and secured in such a way that service by your preferred facility will be effortless so that your system will continue to function properly after service.
We make use of IR-compatible plastics to create mounting solutions that offer seamless integration to ensure that your vehicle looks as though it just rolled off the showroom floor. We create laser sensor mounting pods from special laminated acrylic and contour them to follow grille openings and bumper covers for a truly seamless look. Control modules, antennae and sensors are mounted using aluminum or stainless-steel brackets and corrosion-resistant fasteners to ensure longevity that will outlast most vehicles.
Because we are Arizona’s most-awarded mobile electronics sales and installation facility, you can rest assured that we have been trained by factory representatives and third-party integration experts to deliver all of these requirements consistently while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your vehicle.
Custom Control Panel and Display Integration
Having a radar detector and laser defense system that is easy to use is as important as having one that offers exceptional features and quality. Our product consultants work with each client so that we choose a convenient and accessible mounting location for displays and control panels. We can create custom pods or mounting panels in your center console, an overhead console, the steering column trim panel or your rearview mirror. We tailor the shape and design of these panels to match the interior styling. Once completed, our systems look as though they are part of the vehicle, rather than a bolted-on afterthought.
