If you’re in the market for a laser jammer and you’re looking for the best performing jammer available, the AntiLaser Priority is the one to get. It’s become the go-to recommended laser jammer.
In this post we’re going to go over the main ALP kit as well as the optional accessories available. Note: This pricing is for American customers only. Pricing varies in different countries. Additionally, ALP’s are designed to be used only in the region they’re purchased, so if you need protection against European guns, you’ll want a European ALP. They have Australian ALP’s, American ALP’s, etc. This guide focuses on the American ALP, but the same ideas will apply to international ALP’s. 🙂
In the US you can purchase the ALP online directly from ALPriorityUSA.com.
AntiLaser Priority: $499 – $1499
This is the main kit. The price varies depending on how many laser jammer heads you want to purchase.
1 Sensor – Recommended for motorcycles, $499
2 Sensor – Recommended for small to medium vehicles for front protection, $749
3 Sensor – Recommended for medium to large vehicles for front protection, $999
4 Sensor – Recommended for small to medium vehicles for front & rear protection, $1249
5 Sensor – Recommended for medium to large vehicles for front & rear protection, $1499
HiFi Module: $99
The HiFi module adds an external speaker to your ALP to give you not only louder alerts which you can hear better over any music or road noise, but it will also announce what gun you’re being shot with, it makes it easier to navigate the menus since it tells you what menu option you’re accessing (otherwise you have to look up what different beeps and LED colors mean), and it allows you to use several different profiles at once so you can quickly switch settings on the fly.
It’s a replacement for the standard control pad that comes with the ALP. The standard control pad has a little buzzing speaker inside it. The HiFi module comes with an upgraded control pad that hooks up to the external speaker.
It’s a highly recommended addon.
Here’s a comparison between the standard control pad and the HiFi module. Note: All current control pads and HiFi modules now offer the ability to dim their LED’s and the external LED. My older original control pad didn’t so you can ignore that part in the video below since the ALP has now been updated. 🙂
GPS Antenna: $59
You can plug in a GPS antenna to add some speed-based functionality to your ALP. For example, you can have your ALP log how fast you were going when you got shot so you can see how big of a save you got. You can have your laser jammers turn themselves off automatically when you come to a stop and revert to parking sensor only mode, you can disable your parking sensor functionality when traveling over a set speed, if you have a radar detector paired with your ALP then you can have it mute signals when traveling around town at low speeds to help quiet down the false alerts, and so on. The ALP can also function as a VBOX and measure your vehicle’s 0-60 times.
Radar / GPS Module: $99
You have the ability to integrate several popular radar detectors with your ALP including the Net Radar, STi-R Plus, 9500ci, Radenso HD+, V1, and more. Integrating with a remote detector allows you to have everything tied in together into one package so you have fewer displays and controllers cluttering your cabin. The ALP also allows you to configure many of the advanced radar detector options like BS/RDR, TSR, variable city filtering sensitivity levels, and low speed muting with the optional GPS antenna.
If you pair it with a windshield mount detector like the V1, you could display alerts and frequency information on your phone if you add the optional bluetooth module, but I feel that YaV1 and V1Driver are a much better package for the V1 since it adds autolockouts, lets you custom sweep the detector, and so much more. The R/G module is best suited for integrated remote installs, IMHO.
Net Radar Detector Add-On Package: $499
If you’d like a fully integrated radar and laser package to install in your car while keeping your windshield and interior looking clean, there’s several different remote radar detectors that you can install that also go in the grill of your car like the ALP heads. The ALP supports a variety of different remote radar detectors that you can plug in. They will all share the same controller and display so you don’t need more doodads in your car. I think the best all-around pick for a radar detector is the antenna from Net Radar, so we’ll start with this.
This radar detector offers great performance, great false alert filtering, and unlike the other options, you can pair it with your phone and get GPS lockouts to teach it where the false alerts from shopping centers and grocery stores are located around town so it won’t alert you every time you drive past. It’s also the best bang for your buck because it comes with the accessories you need to pair it with your ALP.
This antenna was specifically designed to integrate with the ALP, cut down on the false alerts that people complain about with the other options, while not relying on a third party which saves you money.
It costs $499 for the radar detector antenna, plus it includes the R/G module and GPS antenna you’ll need.
You also have the option of adding a second rear antenna ($399) if you want directional information (aka arrows). Note: Arrows are not yet available, but they’ll be added soon via a firmware update. You can go ahead and buy the two antennas and update once the feature is released.
For those of you who live in Edmonton, Canada or Quebec, there’s a new radar gun showing up called the MRCD which is very difficult to detect. There will be a third antenna that will be released shortly that will add support for detecting the MRCD and you’ll be able to plug this into your ALP as well.
This antenna is not completely immune to radar detector detectors, but it is almost stealth. It’s detectable only about 24 feet away from the front and if the officer is driving directly towards you. If they’re at an angle or driving past you, they won’t get an alert. From behind it is also undetectable, though they may get an alert if you’re running a rear antenna too and the pull up behind you in traffic. To learn more, watch this video. If you require full stealth capability, you’ll want to look into one of the M3-based antennas.
If you’re getting this antenna, you will also need to pick up either the Hifi module ($99) or the Bluetooth module ($99). You can also get both. The Hifi module will give you an external speaker to let you know if you’re getting hit with laser vs. radar, what band you’re hit with, to hear a rampup, and so on. The buzzer in the standard control pad isn’t enough. You can also get the bluetooth module to play audio through your phone’s speaker (or your car stereo if you pair your phone with your car’s stereo). If you do a fair amount of driving in the city, I would definitely recommend the BT module at minimum because you can add GPS lockouts using the app on your phone. Your phone can also be used to show you the frequency of the signal you’re getting which is helpful information.
Here’s an example of how the alerts look and sound on your phone. If you’re running the hifi module, you’ll get the exact same audio alerts.
You can run both the HiFi and BT module, but only one at a time. I like to run both. The reason is that if you only run BT, if you don’t have your phone with you, it will fall back to running off of the Hifi module. The Hifi module plays the same audio alerts as the phone and the louder speaker means you can hear it more easily over the road noise and your music and all. If you don’t have the hifi module, you can still use the standard control pad. It’s quieter and you still get unique radar and laser alerts, but the sounds are different than what you’re used to with the BT module. By the way, if you’re running both the BT and Hifi (or standard control pad) at the same time, the audio will always play out through your phone or car stereo, not through the hifi module speaker. You can’t use BT and Hifi simultaneously.
If you will always have your phone with you or if you do a lot of city driving, definitely get the bluetooth module. If you also want to have frequency information, get the BT. If you want the simplest install possible and don’t want to depend on your phone, especially if you drive mostly on the highway and don’t need lockouts, you don’t need the BT. I would recommend the Hifi module instead.
Radenso HD+ Radar Detector Addon: $499
Now instead of the Net Radar antenna, you can do the same sort of thing with the Radenso HD+.
This is a high end remote radar detector that competes right up there in range with the remote M3’s like the 9500ci and STi-R Plus. It also has better blind spot false filtering than the M3’s.
Unlike the Net Radar, it doesn’t come packaged with the R/G module ($99) or GPS antenna ($59) so it will cost an additional $160 or so more than the Net Radar. The GPS antenna will give you low speed muting to help quiet it down around town, but if you pair it with your phone, you won’t be able to get GPS lockouts or a frequency display so you’ll ultimately have less functionality.
The HD+ is also not totally immune to radar detector detectors, but it’s only detectable down to about 12 feet away. If you want complete RDD immunity, Radenso will be releasing a fully stealth version down the line for an additional $220 or so.
There is a new CPU coming down the line that Radenso will release to add features like GPS lockouts, redlight camera alerts, and support for a second antenna to have front/rear directional info, but that will come at an additional cost since you’re not relying on the ALP’s brains to do it. It will still integrate with the ALP however if you want to add that functionality later.
Bluetooth Module: $99
The bluetooth module allows you to pair your ALP with your phone and it works on both Android and iOS. With your phone you can update your ALP directly through the app rather than needing to download the update on your computer and transfer it to your ALP with a USB drive. You can also adjust some basic settings from the phone, but the majority of settings updates will still be done through your computer. You can add voice alerts just like you can with the optional HiFi module. You can see what frequency your radar detector is picking up and what lidar gun you’re being shot with. You can also review your logs much more easily and see what gun you were shot with after an encounter. The app uses your phone’s GPS to display and log your speeds. The ALP itself uses the GPS antenna and not your phone’s GPS for changing your settings and muting options depending on your speed.
Here’s a comparison between the ALP app running over bluetooth and the HiFi module, as well as some details regarding usability, killing your jammers, and so on. There’s been some updates since this video was shot too. For example, it used to be the case that if you weren’t connected to the ALP through your phone, your jammers were off completely and you had to either launch the app or physically switch to the wired controller. Now it can automatically fall back to using your control pad so if you’re not running the app, your jammers will still work and will be controlled by the wired controller instead until you launch the app so you’re always protected. Very nice. You can’t use both the BT module and the control pad at the same time, but you now have the ability to easily switch back and forth between both.
ALP Head extension cable: $29
The cables that connect the ALP heads to the CPU are 5m (16.4 feet) long. This is generally enough for connecting the front heads, but for some vehicles you may need an extension cable for the rear heads, especially when you are running the wires under and around the trim of your vehicle. The extension cable will add an additional 2.5m (8.2 feet) of length. You’ll need one extension cable for each head you’re extending the length of.
Pocket Laser Tester: $49
If you want to test your ALP and verify that the heads are working, having a device that can trigger your ALP is very handy. This pocket tester simulates the pulse pattern of a bunch of different lidar guns. It’s great for not only verifying that your ALP works properly, but also to troubleshoot if you suspect that one of the heads isn’t responding to lidar. The ALP does its own self-check and will let you know if a head fails at any point, but this is a great add-on as well.
This is not a substitute for testing your ALP’s with an actual lidar gun, however. This will tell you that your ALP heads are responding to laser, but it will not help you verify that your ALP has been installed properly. Make sure that you follow the installation instructions in the ALP manual and in my comprehensive ALP setup guide.
