ALP Setup Guide Part 10: Installation & Setup Checklist

So this whole guide is pretty long and comprehensive and we’ve covered a lot. Here’s the step-by-step checklist of everything you need to do to get your ALP’s up and running and ready for action.

Installation

  • Choose the number of heads you need
  • Choose the best locations where your heads should go
  • Install your heads straight and level, with a clear view of the road ahead
  • If you’re running 2 heads up front, use just the F1 and F2 ports
  • If you’re running 3 heads up front, ensure the middle head is plugged into the F2 port
  • If you’re running a Tx head up front, ensure it’s plugged into the F2 port
  • If you’re running a Tx head in the rear, ensure the normal rear heads are plugged into the R1 port (using a splitter if necessary) and the Tx head is plugged into the R2 port
  • Install the control pad in a location that’s easy to reach while driving
  • Do a factory reset once your heads are plugged in and your ALP is powered on
    • Long press MENU to enter Yellow menu (LED will change yellow)
    • Press NEXT (Menu Button) five times (5)
    • Press ENTER (Power Button)

Programming

  • Register your ALP’s online
  • Copy down and save the serial number to your white control box
  • Download the latest firmware (Filename will be like U1234567.bin)
  • If you’re using the standard control pad, download the basic control set (UCSET.bin)
  • If you’re using the HiFi control pad, download the HiFi control set (UCSTHIFI.BIN)
  • If you’re using the HiFi control pad, download a voice pack (VOICEPCK.ALP)
  • Configure your ALP online and download the configuration file (config.alp)
  • Copy all these different files to your USB drive
  • Power on the ALP, plug in your USB drive, and allow it to upload all the files to your ALP

Using your ALP

  • If you’re using the Bluetooth module, download the app to your phone and connect
  • Practice moving your hand from your steering wheel to the kill button so you can find it by feel
  • Get your setup tested to insure your install is working properly
  • When you get notified of updates via email, install the updates accordingly

    Howdy,
    Do you know an installer in Colorado, better yet Colorado Springs, CO. I love think I could pull this off but thats just not happening. I want the whole deal. Please advise.

    1. I don’t. However, you can call up several stereo installer type places in the area such as Car Toys. They’ll be able to install something like this and wire it up. Chances are they won’t know the nuances about where the heads should go for optimal performance so you’ll want to make sure you do a little reading on your part and go over this install guide so that once you buy the system online and take it to them, you can talk things over with them and they can do the install in a way that works well.

    Hello,

    quick question. i just installed the ALP in my car. unaware that i had to set up my settings in a usb to actually get it to jam laser (i know….this was all in your videos lol). i dont love using my phone when on the go. i dont have a mount for my phone and overall would just rather have the ALP running from its actual system and not through bluetooth. if i set up the laser jamming capabilities via Bluetooth, will it still work if i disconnect from bluetooth, or will it go back to default settings as just parking sensors?

    1. All your ALP’s settings will remain, including jamming capabilities. The audio will no longer play through your phone (and car stereo) of course, so they’ll play through your control pad / HiFi module instead.

    Hi, do you still update all settings via usb, firmware voice pack, config or can that be done over BT?

    1. Some things like the voice pack must be done via USB, but settings and firmware can be updated over BT.

    I’m looking for install instructions for the ALP. My goal is to see if I’m comfortable doing the install myself.

    I recently purchased this unit based on your valuable evaluations and feedback. Had it professionally installed yesterday. I did purchase the Bluetooth component which should allow me to configure. I haven’t had much luck connecting to it via Bluetooth. Have you had any experience with this? If so please share. Thanks

    I watched your configuration video however the LID time box on the configuration page only goes up to 9 and not unlimited like on the configuration page on your video. Has AL Priority removed that option?

    Your videos are great so keep up the good work.

    1. Yeah ALP has added and removed features over the years.
