    I am trying to find out how to put my ALP to DLI + Warm up since my ALP is integrated with RC-M. I can't find any info.

    ÉDIT: Just to know, what does DLI + Warmup do? What’s the difference from my setting compared to DLI + Warmup?

    I found this, I hope it works since it is not really a firmware upgrade and I have latest version already.

    DLI & WARM UP will leave your ALP in JAMMING MODE in shooter stops shooting. Once he hits you again, ALP will jam again.
    Without this setting turned on, ALP will go into parking more 2-3 seconds I believe after the last laser pulse seen and will stay in parking for a good 60 seconds.

    This is the new placement! It looks good but not tested yet.

    That should be JFG. I have my TX head under the plate, similar install and just tested bulletproof

    Should I put GPS receiver present to ON? Or does RC-M control that part? (I have a GPS for the ALP and a GPS for the RC-M)
    Should I put LID SPEED limit to 30km/h (18mph)? Or does RC-M controls that?

    I am kinda nervous changing the config and messing up the RC-M.

    If you dont turn on GPS for ALP, TX sensor will not work.
    Dont need to change LID SPEED.

    New rear placement should work. If you are getting PTs: two possible reasons, 1st : shinny chrome giving reflection to RX sensor.
    2nd: no gps in config so no TX firing

    With TX sensor in the system it will do it anyway.

    One last thing to confirm before I do this. The Radenso RC-M says specifically to leave everything in default except two things.
    Are you sure that setting DLI + Warmup will not mess up with RC-M system?

    They're handled in separate CPU's. Radenso likely says to leave things as default so it doesn't give the general consumer issues. Nothing in your ALP config file will effect the RC-M

    Perfect. Thanks!

    I just got shot by a LEO from about 500ft. I was doing 110kmh in a zone of 90. I got saved! Sadly my dash cam was not plugged properly and couldn’t get the video.

    I put the configs today and it worked !
    Thank you!

    Today me and @Eloi did more testing. First we tested his car, it was JTG all 99% of the time with 3 RX in front.
    There is two times, @Eloi was shooting and he had like a snap second where he could get a speed. Not sure how but that was two times only out of like 20 times.

    Any suggestion?
    Feel free to post in Advance for him

    Another bug, is that sometimes the ALP doesn’t alert you (sound) but it still jams. Any idea why it does that?

    We also tested my car, mostly back for the new head placement. Sometimes it was JTG sometimes it could get a full reading. I think the reflective panel is playing a big part on this. We covered the reflective part with black tape and it was jamming every time. When I took it out, it was not jamming, even sometimes not alerting.

    well your chrome license plate frame doesn’t help either, swap it off for a black one. then buy some plastidip for cars and put a few light coatings over the chrome panel and it will look nice and clean for a while. it will not harm your car either just eventually peel off and you can put more layers. time to smoke it out!


    try with a diff plate frame first, that thing is reflective as hell!

    Next tuesday, I will move the front RX head to be more close, I will try to do @Patton250 position since our car front is similar.
    One thing I was wondering is if the TX head has to stick out same as the RX? Since I am removing my bumper again and moving the sensors, I wanted to know if I can put the TX more recessed and less sticking out because it is very much sticking out.
    Could it be recessed with the top part and not with the Benz Symbol? I will post pictures in a min

    I’d say let it stick out, your the only one that notices it, most drivers will have no idea its even there

    performance over prettiness

    the Tx transmits on dragon shots, also more powerfully vertically, for those reasons, it needs to stick out. that is what is jamming. you need the field it creates to be as large as possible, avoiding any interference.
