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 is the go-to recommended laser jammer.
In this post we’re going to go over the main AntiLaser Priority components as well as the optional AntiLaser Priority accessories available.
Updated: Mar 2018
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.
In Canada you can purchase the ALP online directly from KMPH.ca.
AntiLaser Priority Components
AntiLaser Priority System: $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
Tx Sensor: $349
For those of you who encounter the DragonEye laser guns and/or want a third head for the rear of your vehicle because you have a larger vehicle and two heads don’t offer sufficient coverage (ie. a truck or SUV), you can pick up a Tx sensor.
The Tx (short for transmit) is a special tiny sensor (even smaller than regular sensors, about the size of a quarter, that have 3 separate transmitters inside.
If you encounter the DragonEye guns, you’ll want 3 heads per side of the vehicle. The ALP supports 3 heads up front and you can replace the middle standard sensor with the Tx head for even better protection against the DragonEye. For the rear of the vehicle, the ALP only supports two heads, so you can use two standard heads (which both plug into one of the rear ports of the CPU using a splitter) as well as the Tx head in the center (plugged into the other rear port of the CPU) and achieve solid protection both front and rear.
Additionally, for those of you who need a third head for the rear, the ALP doesn’t support 3 normal heads, even with a splitter, but you can do two normal heads and one Tx sensor for the rear to get full protection for the rear of your larger vehicle.
AntiLaser Priority Accessories
HiFi Module: $119
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 give yourself low speed muting for radar, have your laser jammers automatically disable at low speeds, have your parking sensors disable at higher speeds, plus the GPS antenna is required for the Tx sensors. Additionally, 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 and the ALP can also function as a VBOX and measure your vehicle’s 0-60 times, so there’s a bunch of useful features that the GPS antenna offers.

Radar / GPS Module: $99
The RG module is designed to allow you to plug in your Net Radar radar detector antenna into your ALP if you’d like to add a radar detector to your laser jammer and have an integrated radar and laser setup. The old version of the RG module (RGv2) supported antennas such as the STi-R Plus, 9500ci, Radenso HD+, and V1, but that module has been discontinued and most of those radar detectors have since been discontinued too. The latest version of the RG module (RGv3) is specifically designed for Net Radar and Net Radar DSP integration and so if you want a radar detector to pair with your ALP, the latest version of the RG module you’ll see online is the one to get.
Net Radar DSP Radar Detector Add-On Package: $649
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. There’s the high performance Net Radar DSP and the more affordable original Net Radar. Both are very capable radar detectors that plug right into your ALP and share the same controller and display so you don’t need to install additional components in your vehicle’s cabin. The Net Radar DSP is the newer and more popular option so let’s start with it.
It offers long range performance, good blind spot filtering capabilities, as well as MRCD detection capabilities. It is also effectively stealth to radar detector detectors. Its biggest appeal though is that it’s designed for the ALP which is the laser jammer that most people are going to get anyways so it’s the go-to choice, plus it offers the performance of remote radar detectors that cost thousands of dollars, yet it’s available at a fraction of the price.
To run it you’ll need the R/G module as well as a GPS antenna. AntiLaser sells a package with all three components to give you everything that you need. If you’d like to get directional information, order a second antenna for the rear as well and it will plug right into your R/G module too.
Note: If you do a lot of driving in urban areas, I’d recommend you get the Bluetooth module as well (covered below) which adds GPS lockouts. This way you can run the iOS or Android app and your phone can learn all the false alerts from shopping centers and speed signs that you regularly drive by and filter them out for you in the future.

Net Radar (original) Radar Detector Add-On Package: $549
Prior to the Net Radar DSP we had the original Net Radar antenna. It was a capable radar detector too, but it’s more of a mid-tier performer rather than a long range detector. It also lacked MRCD capabilities (important for Canada) and so MRCD detection required a second dedicated MRCD-only antenna.
Now that the Net Radar DSP is available for only $100 more, that is the way that most people go. However, the original Net Radar is still a capable detector, it’s more affordable, and not everyone wants crazy long range.
Speaking of saving money, you can also opt to get a Net Radar DSP up front and an original Net Radar for your rear antenna. This will save you $100 over getting a pair of NR DSP’s and yet you’ll still get your arrows. Long range detection is less important in the rear than in the front. Having two NR DSP’s is still optimal since both antennas will be equally sensitive, but if you don’t mind your arrows taking an extra second or two to flip after you pass the source (because the rear antenna will be less sensitive), you save a little cash and do a regular NR for the rear.

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’s firmware 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 your settings through the phone while sitting in the car. Like the HiFi module, you can add voice alerts, except the audio will now play through your phone’s speaker or through your car’s stereo over Bluetooth. Here’s a quick demo of how the alerts look and sound over Bluetooth:
As you can see, when using the Bluetooth 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. One of the biggest benefits is that if you’re using radar with your ALP, your phone will give you GPS lockout functionality so your phone can learn where the stationary false alerts are located around town and mute them for you when you pass by again. This is an invaluable feature for people who drive in urban areas.
One thing to be aware of is that when you’re connected to your phone via Bluetooth, it takes over for your dedicated control pad (both regular and HiFi). Luckily you’ll still be able to use the menu button on the control pad to kill your laser jammers when shot, but all the other functionality for the ALP such as powering on and off, changing settings, or muting radar alerts will be handled by the phone instead of the control pad. Also, if you plug the HiFi module into the Bluetooth module, the HiFi module’s speaker will not work. Audio will go completely though your phone and out through your vehicle’s stereo. I personally like having HiFi too for times when I’m not running the app and so it falls back to HiFi and the audio sounds identical to Bluetooth, but there are some limitations to running Bluetooth and HiFi simultaneously.

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 let you check each head individually to ensure that it’s plugged in and responding to laser, but it will not help you verify that your ALP heads have been installed properly so that they can jam the laser gun effectively. Make sure that you follow the installation instructions in the ALP manual and in my comprehensive ALP setup guide.

Flic Wireless Bluetooth Button: $35
Finally, the last accessory to consider is a wireless Bluetooth button called the Flic that adds a dedicated control button to your ALP to let you do things like kill your jammers, mute or lock out your radar alerts, and power the system on and off.
The button is especially handy for those running the Bluetooth module because when doing so, while you can still JTK with the dedicated control pad, you’ll lose the ability to mute or lock out radar alerts. The only way to control your radar detector otherwise is via the app and it’s not always convenient to switch apps or tap on your phone’s screen while driving.
The Flic is a small button you can stick somewhere in your vehicle (ie. on the dash, behind your steering wheel, etc.) so that you always have a dedicated button on hand to remotely control your ALP while it’s otherwise being controlled by your phone. It can do lots of other things too like control your music and stuff like that. The ALP now interfaces with the button as well so you can use it to control your laser jammers and radar detector as well.

If you intend to mount the whole system including AL
Priority Control Box with the BlueTooth module inside the engine compartment,
you must use adequate plastic waterproof enclosure to protect the AL Priority
Control Box and the BlueTooth Module from moisture.
What is the adequate plastic waterproof enclosure ? Do you have them in stock?
the temperature in engine compartment is quite high. Will it cause the control box and BT module malfunction?
what is safe working temperature for control box?
That’s something that people have been experimenting with. Here’s an example of one: https://www.rdforum.org/showthread.php?t=52414
just called ALP. the Bel STiR is discontinued and they now recommend net radar as their choice of radar detector. however, upon researching, lots of people having bad experience with their radar detection. is there a different choice that can be integrated with the ALP laser which will keep it stealth and clean look while giving it top notch detection. I want to keep the whole package under $2000 for parts only. Will try to find someone that can do the install job for $1000? Am I stretching it? I am in the los angeles area. thanks in advance.
Bad experience with which RD? The Plus or the Net Radar? and yeah, looks like the Plus was recently discontinued. If you want something totally stealth, you’ll need to get a used Plus or 9500ci head. The Net Radar is almost completely stealth. You can see a video I just did about that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4k418en5QQ
As far as pricing, it depends on how fancy of an install you want but I think that should be a doable budget for the install.
So I’ve been pouring over you videos and your WordPress site. I live in the greater Seattle area and I’m seeing more and more laser. I’ve been a die hard V1 user for years but thinking of taking the jump to the ALP on my new Audi B9 A4. My question is do you recommend the Net Radar over a window mount (the Uniden R3 looks AMAZING)? Do like the integration aspect and the stealth look you get. Would love to know your thoughts.
That’s really more a question for you and if you prefer the hidden aspects of running a remote. I think it’s pretty awesome not having something on the WS, but it’s not necessary and personally I don’t mind having a detector up by my RVM. The NR is a great option if you’re looking at a remote.
Hi, I currently have a beltronics stir plus system installed and am looking to purchase the alp system and then integrate the both by adding on the RG module Bluetooth addon so I can see all alerts on one system through ALP Connect app on my iPhone.
Did I get that right and can I setup the system that way?
Yes sir. So the RG (Radar/GPS) module is necessary to plug your STi-R Plus antenna into your ALP. Make sure you get the RGv2 module, not the RGv3. You can then get the Bluetooth module as well for your GPS lockouts and integration with your iPhone.
I have the Escort 9500 count with laser jammers would like to keep the radar part and integrate the ALP laser
What do I need to buy to fully integrate it on my Bentley GT
Which 9500? 9500i, 9500ix, or 9500ci? Only the remote 9500ci can integrate with the ALP, but you’ll lose some functionality including your autolockouts with no phone and redlight camera alerts. You can get rid of the 9500ci’s controller and plug the antenna directly into an RGv2 (not RGv3) module, add a GPS antenna and Bluetooth and get your GPS lockouts back with a phone, and you’ll have an integrated radar/laser setup. If it’s a windshield mount detector, just run them independently but at the same time.
The key is installers. Know anyone in Southern or Las Vegas that are experience and install these units>

Do you recommend ALP with the Net Radar DSP Radar Detector Add-On Package? Is the Net Radar DSP Radar Detector Add-On Package better than the Escort Max 360? Or is it just cleaner looking?
They’re pretty different setups. I prefer the Max360 to get the automatic lockouts without needing a phone. That’s the biggest benefit. You also get Escort Live and a few other things. I’m not a huge fan of how the ALP shares radar and laser alert LED colors and so it’s harder to tell visually at a glance what’s going on. If you want a remote radar detector instead of something on your windshield, the NR DSP is certainly going to fit the bill better in that regard.
Thank you…that’s really helpful.
The follow up question then is: does the new ZW5 hold up against the ALPs performance enough to warrant getting for the wireless integration with the max 360?
Can the Max 360c link to an iPhone (hotspot) instead of the car’s WiFi? Does the WiFi really make it worth the $150 more in your opinion?
I actually wrote up a comparison earlier today between the Max360 and Max360c today. The price difference is now $250 and it makes the 360c a harder sell. https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?threads/75322/#post-1070792
The ZW5 should be a capable jammer. Not as solid as the ALP, it doesn’t cover your rear, and you’re limited to two heads so it’s not great for large vehicles, but it should be good against most laser guns on the market.
You can link your 360c to your iPhone’s hotspot, but it’s not a good idea in practice. You have to manually enable tethering every time you get in the car and it’s easier to just use Bluetooth to have it connect automatically in the background. You won’t get the WiFi updates, but the Escort Live alerts will still work so for most people the regular 360 and ALP’s are a better pick.
That’s very helpful.
Where do you get $250 difference though?
$649-$499=$150. What am I missing?
Whoops! You’re right. Mathfail on my part. 😀
Hello, from Australia, wanting to know if ALP system can be integrated with Beltronics STI Magnum or/and Escort Redline, both RDD protected units. Are you able to supply the 4 head units or a self install?
Hey! I just noticed we are about a year since the last test results for laser protection. Has anything changed? Seems like the best setup is alp for laser protection 2 sensors front 1 tx front and same for rear running with an escort 360 radar detector for radar. Is this accurate today? I don’t think escort has updated the laser on the 360 ci, but with all the other stuff out there I’m not sure whats going to offer closest 100% protection.
ALP is still the best. TMG recently came out at a lower price point, but it’s not quite as solid. Stinger is coming out with fiber optic transmitters and receivers, but those are still yet to be tested. I’ll have more info coming soon, but if you’re looking for a jammer, I’d still go with the ALP today.
Thanks… ALP definitely looks like the way to go.
I’m a little confused as to whether the RGv3 supports the same detectors as the RGv2, or only NetRadar. I’d like to integrate my V1v2 with my ALP system, but their web site is unhelpful in understanding whether this is possible.
I don’t recommend doing that integration. It doesn’t really add anything useful. Pairing it with your phone is WAY better.
Fair enough! I usually run Valentine One on my phone at the same time, so that works. I do wish ALP put a bit more UX effort into their app, though it seems solid enough. I do iOS QA work for al living, so I pay attention to this stuff.
