As more and more people catch onto the idea that speeding tickets are not about safety, but rather revenue, they want to protect themselves. Mobile Edge wants you to think about the fact that one speeding ticket can become pretty expensive when you factor in legal fees and insurance increases, so adding a custom-installed radar detector is a wise investment.
Benefits Of A Custom-Installed Radar Detector
With that said, if you want to get the maximum protection against speeding tickets, you want a custom-installed laser and radar detector. You might be asking yourself, “What is the difference between a custom-installed system and one I simply place on my dash?” That is a great question, so follow along as we explore the differences.
Right out of the gate, the biggest visual difference between a portable unit and an installed unit is cosmetics. A portable unit will sit on your dash or suspend from your windshield and then plug into a cigarette lighter socket. A custom-installed system gets integrated into your vehicle and looks factory-equipped, so nothing is visible for a thief or the authorities to notice. What this means to you is no smashed windows from someone stealing your portable unit that you forgot to remove, and no unsightly cords hanging around your dash.
Cosmetics aside, the performance differences are huge. Let’s start with radar. On a custom-installed system, the radar sensor does not have to fit inside a small portable case, so the sensitivity can be maximized. You also can have a front radar sensor or a front and rear sensor. While some portable units have so-called rear sensors, they are nowhere as effective as a dedicated sensor mounted at the rear of your vehicle. When you add in the separate front and rear indicator lights that we can mount in strategic locations for the driver to see, the improvements in your alert time are significant. That means you get more time to slow down and avoid a ticket.
Now, let’s talk about laser-based radar, as this is a big deal. When someone is shooting your vehicle with laser, they’re using a beam of light approximately 3 feet wide at 300 yards’ distance. Authorities are slowly switching over to laser-based systems because these can pick a vehicle out of a crowd of cars and get extremely accurate readings.
To make matters more interesting, a radar detector can’t pick up a vehicle in front or behind one that’s getting shot with laser. Your detector only goes off when you are getting shot, and that is bad news if you own a portable detector because the only thing it is telling you is pull over, you are getting a ticket. The custom-installed systems at Mobile Edge in Lehighton are different. They are laser defusers.
Here is how they work: When you are driving up the road and your vehicle is shot by laser, the sensors receive the signal and immediately alert you, just like a portable unit. The difference is they fire back powerful beams of light that the laser gun can’t understand, so it gets no reading. The operator thinks they missed your vehicle and you have time to slow down, avoiding a ticket. Pretty neat, huh?
Laser Defuser Options
Just like with the radar sensors, you have options for how many laser defusers get added to your vehicle. Our systems can include anywhere from one to four defusers, and they can go in the front, or front and rear of your vehicle. This means we can customize a system that fits your needs and your budget.
Custom-Installed Radar Detector Systems For Maximum Protection
In the end, you can have a custom-installed laser and radar detector that is integrated into your vehicle and becomes invisible to the naked eye. It turns on and off with your ignition, and can give you audible and visual alerts of any threat. When you add up the increased performance, protection from laser and integration into your vehicle, the choice becomes clear: You need a custom-installed laser and radar detector from Mobile Edge for maximum protection.
