WeatherTech FloorLiners

With winter weather comes that dreaded slushy, salty, muddy mess that appears right after a good snow. You know what we’re talking about! You find yourself tracking that into you house, it’s all over your shoes, and your car floor mats are a disaster once the snow thaws! Now, you can at least prevent that awful mess from ruining your vehicle’s interior. Enter the solution: WeatherTech FloorLiners!

What Makes WeatherTech Special?

In the quest for the most advanced concept in floor protection, product development engineers utilize the most sophisticated tools available for data capture and reverse engineering of complex vehicle geometry such as floor surfaces, cargo areas, window openings or fenders. These digital laser measurements allow WeatherTech FloorLiners to accurately and completely line the interior carpet of your vehicle; up the front, back and event up the sides of the vehicle’s footwell.

“A patent pending High-Density Tri-Extruded (HDTE) material allows for a rigid core for strength while offering surface friction to the carpet, as well as tactile feel to the surface! Advanced surfacing creates channels that carry fluids and debris to a lower reservoir with further channeling to help minimize fluid movement while driving!  Once fluids become trapped in the reservoir, away from shoes and clothing, they are easily removed from the WeatherTech FloorLiner over the door sill.  No muss-no fuss! “

WeatherTech Floorliners are available for most makes and models and are truly custom fit to specific vehicles. Also available is the Rear FloorLiner, a one or two piece flexible liner made specifically to go “over the hump” in your backseats.

Helps Protect Resale Value

WeatherTech FloorLiners help protect resale value too.  Simply put, the cost of owning a vehicle is the difference between what you pay for it and what you sell it for.  There are many factors that influence resale value; miles, exterior condition, maintenance history and of course interior condition. The FloorLiner will help you maintain that “just-from-the-factory” clean carpet.

Order From Us

You may not see every make, model, or color listed on our website, but we’d be happy to order whatever you need! Most WeatherTech products are shipped to us in a matter of days so you’ll be able to get your vehicle’s interior protected quickly!

Pioneer Z Series Loudspeakers

Z HIGH PERFORMANCE AUTOMOTIVE LOUDSPEAKERS

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. has introduced new Z series of speakers and subwoofers; high performance automotive loudspeakers. They are engineered to reproduce music in its purest form and allow the listener to experience the music as the artist intended through an uncompromising pursuit of premium sound quality, and by taking full advantage of unique concepts and proprietary advanced technology.

Z Speakers – No Compromises

The Z is based on highly advanced technology developed by Pioneer, employing carefully selected materials and parts, benefiting from decades of automotive loudspeaker design theory and testing ability. Following Pioneer’s OPEN & SMOOTH™ sound concept, the Z series of automotive loudspeakers features smooth off-axial frequency response, superior directivity and extended frequency range engineered specifically to produce dynamic, accurate sound quality for the car. The result is a purity of sound that achieves unprecedented audio artistry.

  • Designed for Hi-Res Audio
    Hi-Res Audio recordings contain significantly more data compared to a standard CD recording and require a loudspeaker that is capable of smoothly reproducing frequencies of 40kHz or higher. The Z speakers are designed to deliver sound that is clearer, sharper and more complex – reproducing music that is closer to the original performance.
  • 29mm Aluminum Alloy Balanced Dome Tweeter
    The Z tweeter’s aluminum alloy diaphragm allows the tweeter to remain pistonic and linear at ultrasonic frequencies. The unique diaphragm shape, developed using HSDOM (Harmonized Synthetic Diaphragm Optimum Method) computer analysis, accurately controls differential vibration produced by the diaphragm and improves high frequency dispersion. Pioneer’s Vertex Drive System improves the mechanical coupling of the voice coil and the tweeter diaphragm, reducing distortion and coloration caused by low damping and increasing power handling.
  • Dual Layer Cone Construction
    Twaron® is a synthetic aramid fiber that is very strong, heat resistant and rigid when woven into a cloth material. Strength and rigidity are important to keep cone shape at higher powers and maintain responsiveness. The result is fast response and clear bass, with low coloration and distortion.
  • Compact Swivel Tweeter with Tri-Position Mounting Kit
    More than any other speaker, the positioning and mounting location of the tweeter is crucial to the stereo system and the overall listening experience. To ensure installation flexibility, the Z component system tweeters are extremely compact and feature a unique swivel mount that allows precise aiming of high frequencies.

Z Subwoofers – The Pursuit of Perfect Bass


The Z subwoofer uses much of the same highly advanced technology as the Z full range loudspeakers to create seamlessly integrated musical perfection – fast, detailed and extended bass with tremendous impact and clarity. Combining high fidelity and high output in a compact, shallow design, the Z subwoofer offers both unparalleled performance and near limitless installation flexibility. As a result, the placement of the Z subwoofer can be optimized for sound quality and bass reinforcement, unlike conventional subwoofers that must be installed where they physically fit. Balance, speed, power and bass extension unite to create the ultimate low-frequency experience.

 

  • Hi-Res Audio Ready
    Even in the sub-bass region, Hi-Res Audio recordings require a subwoofer that is capable of extremely high dynamic range and low distortion that integrates smoothly with the mid- and high-frequency speakers. The Z subwoofers are designed to take full advantage of Hi-Res Audio recordings, with wide dynamics, extended frequency response and extraordinarily accurate and detailed bass.

  • Twaron Subwoofer Cone Construction
    Subwoofer cones created with Twaron are rigid and low mass with excellent damping characteristics. Strength and rigidity are important to maintain cone shape during challenging bass notes, while damping is critical to improving the responsiveness and signal accuracy. The low mass of an aramid fiber cone improves both sensitivity and the speed of the Z subwoofer, increasing output and power handling.
  • Shallow Basket with Oversized Cone and Magnet
    Subwoofers require an extremely strong basket that holds the cone, suspension and motor structure together in perfect alignment even during high excursions at low frequencies. Traditional subwoofers require large enclosures that can be challenging to install seamlessly. The Z subwoofer features a shallow basket for installation flexibility, a low Q design for high performance in small enclosures, an oversized cone (15% larger when compared to a conventional 10″ subwoofer) and a motor structure with a powerful 67.7 oz. magnet that combine to produce fast, detailed and extended bass with tremendous impact and clarity.

Hertz H8 DSP wins EISA AWARD 2017-2018

Hertz H8 DSP wins EISA AWARD 2017-2018

The EISA Awards jury’s reason in giving this prize is as follows:

“The DSP to beat all rivals, the H8 will automatically re-equalize any OEM system to transform the in-car audio experience from the mundane to the fabulous, creating the most highly-spec’d and flexible entertainment system, with single high-level inputs, that money can buy. The H8 DSP includes a logic-switched User Control Set that allows for a highly personalized entertainment setup – it can even be automated using the seat belt sensors if desired. The processor accepts hi-res audio files up to 96kHz/24-bit via its optical digital input and is also perfectly suited for integration with OEM systems fitted with high-level inputs.”

Hertz H8 DSP car audio processor is capable of interfacing with any analog and/or digital source, transforming ordinary “audio” into a high-performance integrated systemThe simple and intuitive computer software ensures a wide array of adjustments to improve the acoustic response of a complex environment like the car compartment. It provides 7 signal inputs with a variety of connection options: four high-level inputs, also accepting low-level pre-amplified signals; a stereo auxiliary input and an optical digital input accepting signals at a sample rate up to 96/24 bit. The optical digital input (selectable through the DRC HE remote control and from the “Optical / AUX select” terminal) nullifies interference and signal deterioration also by-passing the analog signals A/D conversion stages.  Thanks to the configuration Wizard provided by the software during the set-up, the H8 DSP can automatically sum up multiple filtered channels (for instance, woofer plus tweeter), “flatten” the OEM source equalized response curve and reconstruct a center, rear and/or subwoofer channel with a simple stereo input. By reading the test track on the CD provided, the H8 DSP recreates a full-bandwidth signal, with a flat frequency response and released after processing for an outstanding sound quality.

H8 DSP – The times are arrived

The times has arrived, now #TheSoundExperience enters to the digital world! Find out all the amazing fetaures of H8 DSP on #Hertzaudio web site.

DroneMobile and Alexa

DroneMobile – The First Aftermarket Company to Work with Alexa!

Until now the aftermarket has stood on the sidelines as the Alexa became one of the hottest consumer electronics products.   Companies from SiriusXM to Ford are making their products compatible with the Alexa voice assistant and now DroneMobile becomes the first aftermarket product to also work with Alexa.

The Alexa voice assistant is found in Amazon’s WiFi speakers, the Echo and Dot.  Through your voice commands, they allow you to play music, make to do lists, set alarms, stream podcasts, get news and traffic and more. Some smartphones and even some infotainment systems now also work with Alexa.   Google, Apple, Sony and others are offering or about to release similar voice assisted speakers.

Starting now, users of DroneMobile, the remote start-from-a-smartphone device, can ask Alexa  to lock or unlock your car doors, unlock the trunk, check the status of the vehicle battery voltage and see the location of the car.

DroneMobile parent Firstech  said it already has the ability to allow you to ask Alexa to remote start the car by voice, but the company is waiting to unlock that feature due to security concerns.

There is always the caution with remote start, even from a keyfob, that a child could use it.  To help prevent that, after a user asks Alexa to lock or unlock the car doors, Alexa will ask for a pin number, under DroneMobile’s system.

“We held off to get comfortable with the security aspect,” said Firstech’s Justin Lee.  “It’s totally a safety precaution at this point. We can add remote start in an app upgrade.”  The idea is to take the summer to deploy the product and view results and then revisit unlocking remote start before the fall, when remote start season begins.

DroneMobile noted that as of January of this year, Amazon had sold over 10 million units of Alexa.  “We feel there’s an overlap of early adopters of Alexa and people who add DroneMobile to the vehicle.”

DroneMobile will also support Google Home devices by mid-Q3 2017.

Firstech is offering a free Amazon Dot to the first 100 dealers that order a certain quantity of DR-3400 or RSD-3400 DroneMobile kits.

To see the full DroneMobile Alexa capabilities click here.

The DroneMobile Skill for Alexa is available for download in the Alexa app and on Amazon.com. DroneMobile systems are sold and professionally installed at over 2,000 authorized retailers across North America. Those who are interested in learning more about DroneMobile can visit www.dronemobile.com.

A Remote Start for the Summer

Control the Seasons with a Remote Start for Your Car!

Summer is here and with it comes the heat, sunshine, and warm days.  While that sounds nice, you might not enjoy it so much when getting into your car means getting into a sweltering hot box! 

We’ve all been there, it’s summer and you’ve spent your entire day at work with your car parked out in the open just baking in the sun.  Fast forward to the end of your work day, you walk to your car only to be hit in the face with a wave of hot air and trapped heat as soon as you open your door. 

We think that’s reason enough to use a remote starter in the summer!

  • Cool down your car – Have you ever turned on your car, blasted your air conditioning only to get a huge gust of hot air blown in your face? We all know it takes time for a A/C system to cool down and start blowing that glorious chilly air on us. With a remote starter, you can start your engine 5 to 10 minutes before you get in to give you’re A/C the chance to cool down it needs before you get in!
  • Decreases air pressure – One reason why the temperature inside of a car on a hot day feels so much hotter is because of the increased air pressure inside the vehicle. In just 10 minutes, the temperature of a parked vehicle can rise 20 degrees (whoa!) and will feel significantly hotter than the air outside of the car. Remote starting your engine will allow the air to start circulating before you open that door.
  • Black Leather Seats – Enough said? In direct sunlight, leather seats will quickly turn from a luxury into a burn risk. Remote start your vehicle, the air inside the vehicle cools down, essentially cooling down the leather seats you’ll have to sit on too.

*Please note, a remote start does not make it safe to leave children, pets, or anything for that matter inside of a parked vehicle on a hot day.

We think it’s important you’re comfortable in your vehicle year-round and a remote starter only helps with that! Ask us today which remote starter is right for your car and we can help you on your way to controlling the weather (inside your vehicle at least)!

Things You Need to Know About Window Tint

Drying Time

Your new window film will take about 3 to 5 days to fully dry, sometimes a lot longer depending on film brand, type, and weather conditions. Until this time your tinted windows may appear hazy or lumpy and it may seem like you have water bubbles. Do not roll your tinted windows down until fully dry!

Cleaning

Window Film may be cleaned with a soft clean cloth and alcohol based cleaner or plain water. Ammonia products should not be used! To avoid scratching the film, do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles, as is commonly the case when washing interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials. Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even films with scratch resistant, protective hard coat finish. While these scratches may be too thin to be seen at the beginning, they can damage the polished look of the film over time.

Black Dotted Edges (Dot-Matrix)

Most cars have a black ceramic ‘frit’ edge on the rear window. Sometimes this ceramic edge is straight and flat, sometimes it will have a dotted edge. These black ceramic dots are quite thick on most cars and prevent the window film from sticking to the area between the dots. This results in a whitish looking strip trimming the glass. Typically this isn’t very noticeable, however some cars have a wide band of dots trimming the top of the rear window. This area is so wide that the whitish looking area created is more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effect is unavoidable.

Night time Defogger Distortion

At night you may notice that the light from headlights will reflect off of the defogger lines. This is caused by the film having to bend slightly around the raised defogger line, varies from car to car, and there is nothing that can be done about it. 

Seat Belt Chips

Caution should be used when releasing seat belts. Small chips can be made in the window film due to the seat belt hitting the glass as it is released. This is not covered by warranty.

Imperfections

Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination and/or minor imperfections are present in every window film application. Also, pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.

Window Tint in the Winter

Thinking about getting your windows tinted?

Window tint helps block the Sun’s harmful UV rays, reduces glare, helps the driver with visibility and aids in the protection of the car’s interior. Plus, it can strengthen the windows in case of a break or shatter, can reduce the risk of theft, and adds a sense of style to any car.

Understanding the Process

The window tinting process starts with us cleaning your windows inside and out. Then, the film is cut to the exact size of the car’s window. Our trained installers will place the film on the window and then work to remove any bubbles, wrinkles, or other imperfections, all while making sure it’s a perfect fit. After this, the film needs time to set and cure. For best results, we recommend avoiding rolling your windows up and down for a few days after install just to be safe.

Window Tint in the Winter

With the mention of window tint protecting against the Sun, you might be thinking window tint is only useful in the summer, but you’d be wrong in this case. While UV exposure is the greatest in the summer, it isn’t nonexistent in the winter. UV rays reach Earth every day of the year, and Snow can reflect 85 – 90% of those rays too. So, it’s important to keep yourself and your car protected from those rays all year round.

Now you might be wondering how weather and time of year can affect the window tint install…

The spring brings rain, summer has high humidity, and the winter has ice and freezing temps, but if your install is done inside, away from the elements, it will turn out just fine! We bring your vehicle into our climate controlled garage, let it warm up to room temperature, and then install the film.  This guarantees that no matter what time of year it is, or what the weather is like, you’ll be getting a professional window tint installation.

AudioControl’s LC2i

lc2i_topThe LC2i, is a compact, two-channel processor with active input circuitry, which allows it to accept speaker-level signals of up to 400 watts per channel from factory-installed source units or amplifiers.  It converts them to high-quality pre-amp signals that can then be directed to after-market processors and/or amplifiers. Users can enjoy maximum sound quality while maintaining the use of factory volume and steering wheel controls.

lc2iWho is the LC2i for?

Anyone who does not want to give up their factory dash controls but wants great sound. Car makers these days are incorporating all sorts of convenience features into the factory head units that consumers do not want to give up. In addition, they are making the head unit a more integral part of the dash, even integrating heater/AC, and other control functions, into the sound systems. The LC2i allows that customer to improve the sound system without disturbing any of the factory features and functions.

Key Features

  • Two Channels of Active Speaker Level inputs (Up to 400 Watts RMS/Ch)
  • AccuBASS™ equalization to correct bass roll-off in factory systems
  • Threshold and Boost controls for AccuBASS™ optimization
  • Selectable GTO™ Auto sensing turn-on circuit (no remote wire needed)
  • 9.5 volt preamp output w/level matching controls

lc2i_inputsKey Benefits

  • Great sound from factory install audio systems
  • No sacrificing of factory features like Nav, On-Star, Bluetooth, etc.
  • AccuBASS™ gives rock solid bass at all volume levels despite factory limitations
  • High voltage preamp helps every amplifier to perform to its maximum
  • Compact chassis for quick unobtrusive installation

How to Shop for a Remote Starter

So you’ve decided you’re done with getting into a cold car and done with scraping your windshield in the winter – you’ve made the right decision! Getting a remote car starter installed can save you from battling the cold weather every time you go to get in your car. (P.S. You can use one in the summer to crank the A/C too!) But maybe you’re not sure where to start shopping for one? We can help! Here’s a few tips and things to think about while you’re shopping for a remote start.

Where to Buy?

The most important thing about getting a remote start installed is finding a place that can do it. This is definitely not a DIY install so you’ll want someone professional and guaranteeexperienced. You’ll want to put your car in the hands of someone who knows what they’re doing when it comes to installing this equipment. Not to brag, but we’ve been installing in the 12V industry for over 38 years and our experienced install technicians are fully trained and equipped to handle your vehicle properly. Plus, we offer a lifetime workmanship guarantee on all of our installations.

Consider Your Car

While many different remote start brands and models are available not all are compatible with every vehicle.  Your vehicle may require additional parts (like a bypass unit) or additional labor to make a remote start work properly. Features like factory security systems, push button starts, and standard transmissions are all factors in considering which remote start will work with your vehicle. We’re always happy to discuss any additional components that may or may not be needed to make a remote start work for your vehicle.

remote-starter-rangeRemote Start Range

Ask yourself where you’ll be starting your car from? It matters because different remote starts have different ranges. Will you be starting your car from inside your house right next to your driveway? Or maybe from your office while your car is parked in the back of the big office lot? You’ll want to make sure you purchase one that will work when you need it to. (Read more about Remote Start Range on our Blog Here.)

Consider Price

It’s true what they say, you get what you pay for. And what you should be paying for is high quality technology and knowledgeable installation. So it may not be best to go with the cheapest price you find. Maybe you’re shopping around online, that’s smart to research, but you might not be seeing an accurate price. Some retailers online don’t include the price of installation, or the price of any additional parts your specific vehicle may need. And some low cost models might not have the range you’ll need. When it comes to your car, don’t cut corners, invest in what you’re installing in it. We’ll be happy to walk you through our pricing structure and we’ll always be upfront about if your vehicle needs additional parts and additional costs. (We’ll be honest, most newer vehicles do require some extra attention, so don’t always assume the price you see online is 100% accurate.)

10670092_10152602803597982_7193951088121508003_nWhen to Shop

You’ve gotten this far, decided to get a remote start and maybe you’ve even picked out a model. The next step is to install it, but when? Simply put, do it now. Install it now before this winter hits, before you’ve scraped your first window for the year, and before the first snow flake falls. Be prepared, it’s that simple! It’ll benefit you to do it now not only because you’ll beat the weather, but you’ll also beat the rush of people who realize they need a remote start too when the weather turns. Once the frost starts coming every morning our install garage fills up quickly with remote start installations every day, so schedule your vehicle now.

Leather vs. Cloth Vehicle Interior

Pretty much everyone has an opinion on which is better; leather or cloth seats.  If you’re still deciding or thinking about upgrading your interior with Katzkin Leather installed by us, then let’s discuss a few pros and cons. 

col-13-1-traverse-zoom-d-ts1383113389Leather Interior Pros:

  • Simply put, it’s luxurious, whether it’s your own opinion or just its reputation.
  • And the smell…admit it, there’s nothing like it.
  • Most top notch leathers are comfortable, soft, and supple.
  • Easy to clean accidental liquid spills or wipe up crumbs from too (those with children might understand all too well!)
  • Adds to a vehicle’s resale value

Leather Interior Cons:

  • Leather is significantly more expensive than cloth.
  • Too hot or too cold seats. (But hey, that’s what seat heat and cooling systems are for, right?)
  • While yes, it’s easy to clean, it also has to be maintained. If you don’t pay enough attention to your leather, over time it can harden, crack, and show wear.

Cloth Interior Pros:

  • vacuum-being-used-on-car-seatCloth is more affordable than leather. (Yes, we said leather is comfortable too – a pro for both!) No sticking to the seat, or sliding around like with leather.
  • The temperature of the seat won’t fluctuate with the weather. Cloth seats don’t swing from one temperature extreme to the other.
  • Low maintenance. Regular vehicle vacuuming can basically do the trick for regular up keep.

Cloth Interior Cons:

  • They stain more easily and can be difficult to clean. Depending on the circumstance, cloth seats could need to be steam cleaned.
  • The ‘new car’ smell doesn’t last. Cloth absorbs odor and can give your vehicle certain unpleasant scents if not careful.
  • Doesn’t really affect resale value compared to leather

11822960_866564963398824_3404796051513168088_oWe can’t tell you which one to choose for your vehicle, it truly is a personal preference and depends heavily on your lifestyle and purpose of the vehicle.  What we can guarantee is if you choose to install new Leather interior by Katzkin you’ll know you’re getting the best quality and the best install around. Contact us today to talk options for your vehicle, including custom colors, materials, and event accent stitching. We’ll be happy to help you build your dream leather interior.

Pioneer Safe & Sound Tour 2016

safeandsoundbanner_922x358-1

Driving safe is not only smart, it’s cool. With another school year starting and students back in class, we’ve partnered with Pioneer and New Albany High School to promote safe driving among teens at last week’s Varsity football game against Gahanna-Lincoln! With technological advancements in car entertainment,

such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Pioneer’s exclusive AppRadio Mode, and Bluetooth for hands free calling and audio streaming, drivers will be less distracted with text messages and calls, and more focused on the road. 

We set up a ‘tailgate’ area in front New Albany High School where attendees could check out our demo vehicles, including a jeep equipped with a Playstation, snap a pic in the photo booth (provided by greatphotobooth.com), play street hockey or football toss, and take a chance at a prize by spinning our prize wheel!

Radar Detector FAQ

Investing in a radar detector can give you freedom while you drive; no more stressing about unwanted and unnecessary tickets.

These devices can detect the frequencies being emitted from radar guns and signal you while driving when there is radar technology in the area.  If used appropriately, they can be useful tools that can send reminders that people need to slow down, as well as encourage safer driving.

Types of Detectors:

  1. Corded Detectors: Windshield mounted via suction cups and are plugged into a 12V outlet
  2. Cordless Detectors: Can easily be moved from one vehicle to another and have a cleaner look than corded models, and run off of batteries
  3. Remote(Hidden) Mount Detectors: Permanently and typically custom installed into your vehicle, virtually undetectable and invisible

FAQ About Radar Detectors:

  1. Are they illegal?  No, not illegal.  They are legal for non-commercial vehicles in 49 states.
  2. What’s the major differences between portable and remote detectors?  Portable units mount on your windshield and are powered by a 12V outlet. Remote units feature a front and/or rear mounted receiver for exceptional performance, along with audio and visual warnings. 
  3. Are radar jammers the same thing?  A radar jammer blocks the signals from a radar gun so that the police officer can’t get a reading on you.  A radar detector just signals you when radar is in use in your vicinity.  Jamming radar is a federal offense and prohibited nationwide.   
  4. Don’t radar detectors just encourage speeding?  They’re not meant to promote unsafe driving. These devices are best used by safe drivers who find themselves going a little too fast sometimes. They’re to help detect law enforcement technology and remind you to pay attention to speed limits.
  5. If the weather is bad, will a detector actually work? Yes, this equipment isn’t affected by bad weather. Radar frequencies can travel through rain and snow.
  6. Does having a radar detector mean I’ll never get a ticket again? No, don’t stop being a cautious driver just because you have a detector. Technology advances every day and radar is not the only way police can catch a speeder. The only sure way to avoid getting a speeding ticket is to not speed.

A radar detector is definitely not a DIY installed product. Please save yourself from headaches and vehicle damage by having your detector installed by us.  We can help you choose the best one for your needs and answer any more questions about radar and laser protection you might have.

How to Choose a Radar Detector

alaska-highway-panorama_966x242The freedom to relax, drive with confidence, and not worry as much about an unwanted ticket – that’s what an investment in a radar detector can give you. But, what should you look for when you’ve decided to purchase one?

How Radar Detectors Work

speeding.ticket.6-640x424Police radar guns “see” a vehicle by transmitting a microwave pulse. Then they make use of the Doppler Effect: the frequency of the transmitted pulse is compared to the frequency of the reflection, and speed is calculated by using the difference between them. The idea behind radardetectors is they look for radar “beams” and find them before than can return a strong enough reflection to “illuminate” you. Radar detectors are essentially microwave radio receivers that make noise or flash lights when they sense an incoming signal on specific frequencies.

Types of Detectors:

  1. Corded Detectors: Windshield mounted via suction cups and are plugged into a 12V outlet
  2. Cordless Detectors: Can easily be moved from one vehicle to another and have a cleaner look than corded models, and run off of batteries
  3. Remote(Hidden) Mount Detectors: Permanently and typically custom installed into your vehicle, virtually undetectable and invisible

Important Features to Look for:

  • City Modes: This will reduce the range or sensitivity so that you get fewer false alerts.
  • Directional Awareness: Know exactly where the police are at all times. Dual radar receivers provide increased range to keep you protected.
  • 360 Laser Detection: A detector with one laser sensor can detect in front of you, but not behind you or off to the sides. 360-degree laser detection systems use two sensors to look for pulses all around you. A system with 360 functionality tend to be more reliable, but sometimes costlier too.
  • mm360heroVisual and/or Auditory Alerts: A voice or LED light alerts you that your radar detector has picked something up. With these alerts you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to look at the display.
  • GPS: Some GPS radar detectors can be programmed to “remember” areas that you drive past and alert you when they are approaching. If you drive past an area with a suddenly steep drop in the speed limit, the detector can warn you ahead of time so you can adjust your driving accordingly. Or you can program it to remind you of areas where there are red-light or speed cameras or frequent speed traps
  • Smartphone Compatibility: Integrate your radar detector with your smartphone using an Android or iOS App. These apps work to give you alerts provided by other app users, or highlight law enforcement areas others have encountered. There are also radar detectors that transmit alerts directly to your smartphone.
  • K-Band Sensitivity: If it’s been aimed at you, your speed has been measured by the time the detector alerts you. If it is being used to target vehicles ahead of you, a detector with a sensitive K-Band reception will alert you. High K-band sensitivity allows manufacturers to promote a detector as giving Instant-On Protection.

Whatever features you find most important to the way you drive, we can help you choose the best radar detector system for you.  Stop by one of our stores today and we can walk through all the options and installation for your vehicle.

Don’t Leave These Things in a Hot Vehicle

 Summer-Car-CareIt’s the first day of summer and that means the sun and heat has officially arrived! That also means taking care of the interior of your vehicle. When your car is parked all day while you’re at work, or even just while you’re in the grocery store; you know it’s going to be hot when you get back in it. If the temperature outside is in the 90s, your vehicle’s interior can reach well beyond 120 degrees Fahrenheit.  You may not have thought of this before, but there are certain things that shouldn’t be left in a hot vehicle.

  • Wax Items: Seems like a no-brainer right? Just don’t leave a candle to melt, right? Wrong.  Items that shouldn’t be left behind include lipstick, chap sticks, sunscreens, lotions, and crayons too. Imagine any of those melting into your upholstery or the carpet, and it’s not a pretty sight.
  • Aerosol Cans: These things have warning labels for a reason.  When the temperature of a can of say WD-40 or hairspray gets to a certain level, the gasses inside can combust and create an explosion. That’s right, an explosion, inside your vehicle, not to mention the dangerous fumes they can give of too.
  • Can Soda: These definitely don’t do well in high temperatures. The carbonation within an unopened can acts as a gas and expands as the temperature heats up; causing an explosion that will leave your interior a sugary mess.
  • Gum and Candy: Maybe you’ve thought of this one, because you know how candies melt just in your pocket or in your hand. Now imagine that sticky, gooey, or chocolatey mess in your car seats.  Do a check of under OCFIAT4-1all the seats to make sure a stray treat hasn’t hidden itself away just to make a big mess later.
  • Dairy Products: Probably an item that you don’t always have in your car anyway, but what if you lose a carton of milk or a yogurt out of your grocery bag one day? Give it a bit in the heat and you’ll know because of the foul odor that will be spread throughout your vehicle. Make sure you have all your items when getting groceries out of your vehicle, and make sure a little one hasn’t dropped or left behind their drink or snack.

Hopefully you’ve never had to clean up a mess made by any of the above, but if you have, you’re probably not alone.  As the summer sun and heat increases its intensity keep an eye out for any of these items in your vehicle and prevent a headache later on.

**Note: We’ve written this blog post highlighting the everyday things that can cause a mess in a warm vehicle.  We’ve also written this while keeping in mind that it is a basic fact that Children and Animals should NEVER be left in a vehicle unattended.
