A client from Metairie recently contacted the team at Prestige Car Audio and Marine to inquire about upgrading his 2019 Porsche 911 Targa with a radar detector and dashcam system. We started by inspecting the vehicle to determine the ideal mounting locations for the laser shifters and the radar control interfaces. After confirming the client’s requirements for the dashcam features, we put together a detailed quote to create a system that would protect the vehicle from radar traps and fraud.
Porsche 911 Radar Detector
The radar and laser defense solution we installed features an Escort MAX Ci 360. Our team removed the front and rear bumper covers to mount the dedicated radar antennae and run the wiring for the ShifterMax laser transceivers. All of the wiring is routed along the same paths as the factory light and sensor wiring to ensure that there are no buzzes and rattles or issues with electrical interference.
Where and how we mounted the ShifterMax sensors is crucial to the operation of the laser defense system. The distance between the sensors, the distance above the ground and how each sensor is aimed has a dramatic effect on the performance and reliability of the system.
Custom Escort Radar Controller Installation
Where the project got exciting was inside the vehicle. The display for the MAX Ci 360 is integrated into the top right corner of the rearview mirror. This location is clean and tidy while remaining easily visible when the system provides an alert. In a similar fashion, we created a custom vinyl-wrapped mounting panel for the radar control panel in the center console. The client can easily and intuitively flip up the cover to cancel the laser shifters or make adjustments to the system.
Premium Dashcam Provides Indisputable Evidence
The client wanted a high-quality dashcam to keep tabs on people and other vehicles while he drives. The client chose the BlackVue DR900S-2CH system for its amazing 4K recording resolution, HD-quality rear camera and Wi-Fi connectivity features. The main camera is mounted to the windshield just below the rearview mirror and is wired to start recording as soon as the ignition turns on. The wide-angle lenses offer 300 degrees of coverage.
New Orleans’ Automotive Enhancement Experts
With the radar detector and dashcam installation complete, we let the client know he could pick up his 911 Targa. When he arrived back at Prestige Car Audio and Marine, a member of our sales team walked him through how to use the Escort and BlackVue systems. He was very pleased with the installation.
