I thought I'd share this for anyone who's interested. Got this in my email yesterday. From the looks of it, it appears they are setup to start taking orders for the new all fiber parking sensor system.

This is really ice for those in banned areas as they are super small. though they are hard to get aligned correctly for proper performance... then of course there is the price tag, and the lack of support/updates... I do wish ALP could to a fully separate receive and transmit sensor set (they are half way there with the TX sensor) as they would be smaller and could be located in more places allowing more ideal install... that said you have to be careful with systems like this to make sure you don't get reflections or receivers that can see the transmitters...

Completely separate pieces would sure be neat. I have often found myself thinking it would be pretty cool if you could use one manufacturers CPU with another manufacturers heads if they had the same power specifications and latency etc. I'm sure other things figure in to that too but a guy can dream can't he?

I’m seeing $990 for the base system which includes a TX/RX pair and then an additional $700 for each TX/RX pair. And they recommend 3 TX/RX pairs so that comes out to $2390 just for front protection? Am I reading this wrong?!?!

I wonder if RALTEC folks will be doing any testing on this, like old desert shootout.

Awfully expensive for an untested product. I idea is extremely exciting but so is space travel at the speed of light. I won’t trust it until lots of independent testing happens. Still though I’m sure some of these high-end shops will sell them and install them without even caring about testing.

I’m glad I never pulled the trigger on Stinger’s first time around.

I think I’ll wait and see again — I have no desire to be their beta tester, with slow/no support, at that price point.

If they want to charge a “premium”, 1) it better work, and 2) they better provide “premium” customer service.

Well my doctor told me to get more fiber but instead of this suddenly useless system I chose FIOS.

I mean how many times can someone disappoint you before you call it quits?!

I like the idea of the fiber technology *if it works*. But I only like the idea if it works AND was in the hands of ALP. Yeah, I know. I'll keep dreaming.

@BestRadarDetectors looked into fiber cables awhile back.................dismissed using them due to ~ 30% loss of signal IIRC

So I just got off the phone with Stinger. We chatted for a good 2 1/2 hours. Here’s a couple things in learned from the conversation:

The new fiber heads are physically different than before which is why you need an all new system.

The new system should be JTG against all guns including the DE, Stalker XLR, etc. They’re a smaller company, but they’ve been devoting their resources lately primarily to the laser side.

They offer an upgrade path for existing customers who want to trade in their older systems.

They have a stand-alone jammer with the “strip” that is a smaller display than the VIP. It doesn’t offer as many options as the larger VIP’s display, but it gives you all the key capabilities that you need.

The strip was only released in the US about two weeks ago. They’re going to send one over so I can install it (triple Tx and Rx) and test it against the ALP, Escort, and TMG options. I have the regular VIP as well so I’ll put it next to the strip to compare the two displays.

They’re now here in San Diego and have been for a while so they’re spending a lot of time focused on the needs of US customers. (It turns out things are very different in Holland and in Europe in general, unsurprisingly, so this is great news for them.)

Curious to see if the newest DE will be JTG.

Agreed. They sounded pretty confident in the new system. They not gonna have inventory until next week so I may just wind up self-installing these with Sugru, heh, but that shouldn't be a big deal.

Oh, unlike the previous system which had one USB cable for all the front radar/laser stuff, this one should have individual cables for all the heads like a traditional jammer.

In any event, I'm really looking forward to testing it out. Maybe I should get my hands on a K40 Defuser Optix as well, get a bunch of guns, and run the jammers through the gauntlet.

you should totally do this :) always good to have some good fresh data on the systems, besides it's a good chance to test out all the gear on the new car and make sure the placement is good.
