AutoLearn uses GPS technology to automatically "learn" (by exact location and frequency) each radar signal and determine if it's a real threat or not. This data is updated real-time during your drive, and provides the most accurate alert system possible. The result is the most accurate long-range protection in the industry and a permanent solution to false alarms. You drive. It learns. End of story. Nothing could be easier.

Installation Disclaimers:

• Some vehicles may require optional mounting brackets or additional labor due to the complexity of the vehicle. • Most European and exotic cars, Mercedes, Jaguar, Porsche, Audi just to name a few, enclose their engine compartments with additional noise suppression. This makes running wires and mounting units in these vehicles more difficult. • Mounting the interior control box behind a dash panel or altering it to fit in a certain area is considered a custom installation.
