Everything You Need to Know to Set Up and Use your AntiLaser Priority Laser Jammer System

AntiLaser Priority

The AntiLaser Priority is arguably the very best laser jammer system currently available on the market. It’s offers the highest level of protection against all known lidar guns. Lots of jammers advertise that, but this one of the few that can actually jam not only the standard older lidar guns in use, but also the newest lidar guns that are designed with sophisticated anti-jamming software. Additionally, AntiLaser is very good about continuing to keep it current with firmware updates as new guns come out on the market. The update process is much better than with other jammers, the lidar heads are more sensitive than competing jammers which means they’re more forgiving to installation issues, the jammer can integrate with a number of popular radar detectors, their customer service is excellent (which is very important if you need help installing and using your jammer).

In the USA, they’re available for sale from ALPriorityUSA.com.

In Canada they’re available for sale from KMPH.ca. (Save $50 with the coupon code “VortexRadar50”)

There’s a bunch of reasons why these have become the most popular jammers on the market and the standard go-to for enthusiasts all around the world, but the main reason is that as purely a laser jammer, which is the main thing you’d need this for, it’s simply the most effective jammer out there at helping you avoid speeding tickets from police officers shooting with laser guns.

Now just because you buy the best jammer on the market does not mean that it will work when you install it. You need to keep it updated against the newest guns, you need to install it correctly so that it can do its job effectively, and you need to know how to use them so that you don’t raise the suspicion of an officer who may wonder why they can’t get your speed. (Hint: Turn your jammers off when you’re at the speed limit!)

In this guide, I’ll cover all the fundamentals you need to know about your ALP’s to make sure that you have the very best laser protection available. There’s quite a bit to cover, so I’m going to break everything up into different sections. You can read them all in order (I recommend reading everything if you’re new to this since every piece of the puzzle is important) and then skip around to the appropriate sections as needed once to review you’re familiar with everything.

    You reviews are the best! I watched almost all of your videos! I have a question though: what is the best location to install the Bel Sti-R Plus sensor (NOT laser jammers)? I saw some videos where people install it behind the bumper. Does it make a difference? Or putting it in the grill is miles better?

    The reason I’m asking is because obviously placing the sensor behind the bumper is more stealth…
    Thank you!

    1. Yeah definitely not behind the grill. The ideal location is with a clear view of the road ahead.
      Next best would be behind a flat (nor curved or angled) bumper with non-metallic paint.
      Behind the grill will affect performance quite a bit, even though it can physically see through the grill. The grill will mess up the radar waves in a negative way.

        Wow, I did not know about the grill… Thanks a lot!
        But based on your experience, what is the performance hit of placing the sensor behind the flat bumper VS in clear view? Are we talking about 5%? 10%? 50%?

        1. Yeah I saw a test done where range dropped by about 50% behind the grill while it was negligible behind the bumper.

    Aloha, I purchased my ALP from Radar Roy a few weeks back and only got to install it today. I have the main unit, 4 sensors, blue tooth module and HIFI that’s it no radar or GPS. So I have a couple questions as I went through all the setup. So the first time I put the USB loaded with my settings I believe it loaded as the led went from a few different colors than at the end it started flashing all colors. I restarted the ALP and now after loading it goes to the blinking blue light so it’s milo her in parking sensor mode, but the HIFI voice does not come on…..? We download it but it’s not working….. I tried making different setting and reinstall the USB but now it seems as it doesn’t update to the new settings and the LED just goes into the multi color flashing once I put the USB in…… Any help on this would be helpful!!

    Second question is about my Bluetooth module, when I try to connect to it, it keeps connecting and disconnecting rapidly and will not stay connected…. Help please thanks!!

    1. If you need tech support with your ALP, the best person to ask would be BestRadarDetectors at rdforum.org. He’s the main ALP person.

    I saw your video on the “ALP Connect vs. HiFi Module” on Youtube. I am interested in running this unit on a motorcycle, using the Bluetooth to pair to an Android. The phone will be in my jacket with headphones running up to my helmet. I saw on your review that the iPhone will automatically silence music or navigation when the detector is triggered but you did not demonstrate a similar capability with the Android.

    So if I am riding with my phone connected, listening to music or navigation, and the detector is triggered, will it mute my other apps and give me the alert?

    Alternatively, if it doesn’t mute the other apps but the alert is still loud enough to hear over them, that would also be acceptable. I understand the light will be visible regardless but if I am not looking down at my instrument cluster I may or may not notice it in time.

    1. From what I understand, things are different with Android not supporting HFP so it doesn’t work the same way. However, things can vary between phones and cars so the best thing to do is to download the app to your phone, connect it to your headphones, and run the demo feature in the app to see how it all works. Then you’ll find out for sure. 🙂

    I just ordered the All with 4 heads. 2014 Mustang GT. Should I put 2 on front and 2 in rear or 3 in front and 1 in rear. Will only be driving in Florida and Georgia over this install.

    1. 2 heads per side, minimum, so 2 front, 2 rear. If you’re driving in GA and FL, having 3 heads up front would be highly recommended so 3 front, 2 rear.

    Hello in this video https://youtu.be/uBwKpOiwUq4 at minute 5:53 you say there is a MOD. I neee it. I want parksensor only and when I plug the usb stick in, i want laserjamming only.
    How does this work?
    Can I do this on the site alupdate.com?

    1. You can it from the website, yes. However since then there have been some updates made available. You can now turn off your jammers at the press of a button which makes it super easy.

      Also if you get the HiFi or Bluetooth module, you can create 3 different profiles and switch between them on the fly by double pressing a button on the control pad or on your phone. This way you don’t have to deal with USB drives anymore. 🙂

    I am very new at all this, but I want to get one install on my car.
    Is the ALP a complete system or will I need a windshield mounted radar detector as well ?

    Two questions:

    1) I was quoted $700 for installation of 3 front heads with 8 hours of work in Florida. Is this fair market price?

    2) I drive a large SUV with rear air suspension which is constantly adjusting the height depending on the load sensor or whatnot. Will cars/SUVS with self adjusting air suspension systems effect the laser jammer ?

    1. That sounds fairly reasonable.

      Your air suspension shouldn’t be an issue. 🙂

    Vortex, Per my post on the youtube post – I’ve recently ordered a complete ALP package. I should have the receiver placement down but I am wondering about placement on everything else… I have a Silverado 1500 and I am wondering the placement on everything else. I ordered the ext cables for the back. I’m guessing I will place the CPU behind the dash someplace. Does the GPS unit work good? It can also go in the dash? or that needs to be mounted to the windshield? Will you please provide some insight on the rest of the placement?

    I am having difficulty understanding the benefit of the bluetooth app.

    I installed the app which is not more functional. It also has a risk of losing the bluetooth connection at an important moment and not knowing. When I disconnected the bluetooth, it appears to have rendered the ALP back to factory settings. It is a solid yellow led – not blue. Now I don’t know how to put it back in active mode.

    I tried to put the thumb drive which had the profile previously used but this did nothing.

    Also, it doesn’t make sense that I would purchase the hifi speaker and updated control pad if I were planning to use the app. It also doesn’t make sense that I would use the map feature or have the app open while driving especially if I am using Waze.

    Can you help shed some light? Tips? New Tutorial?

    1. Connecting to or disconnecting from Bluetooth doesn’t change settings. Yellow means it detects laser, but it doesn’t jam. Doublecheck your settings to see if you don’t have anything set to disable your jammers at low speed or if you’re switched to a different profile.

      Bluetooth otherwise is very helpful. Easier to change settings in the car, firmware updates through your phone, audio alerts through your car stereo, visual alerts, and so on.

      I like both BT and Hifi. I use HiFi day to day and when I need to update the jammer or change settings, I pull out the phone and connect as needed. Once I’m done I close the app and disconnect.

    I was told that the newest TX sensor could not be installed on my Porsche 911 (991) because it needs 20 inches clearance from the ground. What do I really miss out on by not being able to have the TX sensor? Can it still jam Dragon-eye?

    Also, I have been having a problem with the sensor sticking – they fell off and we’re hanging by a wire. (They were mounted by using adhesive.) Is there a better or recommended way to mount them? Do most people have them screwed in?

    1. Yeah, so going for 3 normal heads would be the way to go on you vehicle. The sensors ship with metal mounting brackets you can attach to your vehicle. It works better than sticky tape.

    Drive responsible there is a gambling chance that one will get a speeding ticket with a Radar Detector as well as a laser Jammer.

    But I still like to win the ALP!

    I just bought alp and waiting for it to arrive(yaaaay).i drive a f250 truck with lots of grill,planning on 2 regular sensors and a TX on the front, since I have a lot of grill area should I stick with alp placements which show a f150 or space them out to cover more area

    I have a Porsche 911 and can not reach the 20” height for the TX head. However, my installer told me we could mount the Tx head at a very slight upward angle, maybe a degree to two degrees. Should we angle the TX upward or just install three RX heads and ditch the TX head for this car? Without a TX, am I vulnerable to off axis laser punch through (even with 3 x RXs up front?)


    1. Ditch the Tx heads up front for the Porsche and stick to three normal heads. Do NOT angle the heads up or down. They make that very clear in the instructions and hopefully your installer has read them… The jammer does fine even with 3 normal heads. A Tx head adds additional coverage in the vertical direction. Off-axis to the side isn’t really improved with a Tx sensor.

    I have a 2015 BMW M4. What is the best setup for my car? TX? Or normal heads? i want rear protection as well. Thanks in advance.

    1. The standard recommended setup for BMW’s currently is two standard heads mounted vertically in the grill with the Tx head in the center. For the rear, two regular heads mounted horizontally with a Tx head in the center.

    Hello, I have several questions , first How many heads for a volvo xc90 2018? Second I read that if you have iphone you dont need hifi option. Is this also true for the android phone?
    Also I see that is required for the tx head is gps accesory. IF IM using it in central america do I need the gps?
    Will the alp work without the tx head against other speed guns with no dragoneye?

    For the zw5 wireless jammer is it required to have the other radar device escort max or others? It cant work stand alone?

    1. SUV’s are best run with 3 heads per side. The TX is required as part of how it operates with the ALP, independent of where it’s used in the world. The ALP does work well without the Tx head. You can do 3 regular heads front and 2 regular heads in the rear.

      As for the ZW5, it MUST have a compatible Escort windshield mount radar detector. It is not a standalone laser jammer.

    I have a few questions regarding the ALP laser jammer. I am planning on buying a 3 sensor head set up front and back with TX.( 2 regular 1 TX ) It gives me the option of adding in front and or rear antennas which are quite pricey, Roughly $500 for each. I currently have the Radenso Pro M detector. Now my questions are, is this radar detector compatible with ALP as well? Is there any value in buying the front and rear antennas?

    1. The ALP by default runs independently so it can be used alongside any radar detector like the Pro M. If you get the custom installed RC M, the ALP can integrate with it so that both the RD and LJ share the same controller, display, and speaker as well.

      Now as for the ALP’s optional radar detector, that’s the Net Radar DSP. If you opt for that, you won’t need the Pro M since you’ll be running a different radar detector already. Both options have their pros and cons and I cover those here.

    You are the best resource by far! Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing all your information. So here are some tough questions for you:

    1. I understand that the ALP comes in different device-locked regions (Europe, North America etc) and that you are not able to flash a different region’s firmware. Each region jams different guns. I know from another forum that the Traffic Patrol XR is not detected/jammed in the US version. Is the DragonEye detected in the European version? There are some countries, e.g. Greece that use both Traffic Patrol XR and the DragonEye and want to make sure that if I buy the European version I can jam both guns.

    2. How can we be sure which version jams which guns? Cannot find any data on this and ALP have not responded to my request.

    3. Why is the European version not coming with the TX sensor or the gen.4 CPU? Is it 2 different companies that run ALP?

    4. If you speak directly to ALP, PLEASE ask them to drop this region nonsense. Unless there is a technical limitation in jamming all guns it causes major problems not being sure if the device works in any given country. Some countries like Greece, Dubai may randomly introduce guns either as trials or donations. I would pay 50% more to buy a global ALP version and I am sure there are others out there that would do the same.

    5. In the new Porsche 911, (992 series, 2020 model) there are active aeros below the headlights. It may be necessary to mount 3 standard detectors under the front plate. I know you say that each sensor covers about 24 inches in diameter (i.e. about 60cm) which means that it will leave big holes left and right on a car that is almost 2m wide. Any ideas?

    1. Unfortunately I can’t give you a ton of details regarding European versions of the ALP. The jammers are region locked to protect the local distributors and prevent people from buying an ALP abroad and bringing them into their areas. It has nothing to do with technical limitations.

      As for placement recommendations, post some photos and details up here and we can help: https://www.rdforum.org/forums/57/

    Hello all,
    According to ALP the new TX black sensors are suitable for all vehicles and ideally a pair should be used on each side.

    Does this mean that even for low vehicles such as a 911, 2 normal sensors and 2 TX black should be used on the front side? Does the minimum height restriction no longer apply for these new heads?

    1. Ah interesting. Last I heard that’s still being tested for situations like that. I’m not sure if the Tx Black heads are confirmed to work in all situations and in all cars, but it’s worth looking into.

    In your installation guide, which is good and I appreciate, you mention a T splitter for the rear regular sensors if one is also installing a third TX sensor.

    Can you point us to where we could buy these splitters, which don’t seem to be available on the ALP website.

    Thanks, and keep up the great work!

    1. Yeah it looks like they don’t sell the splitters standalone, but there is an option to add one when you purchase the TX sensor itself.
