Plug & Play Functionalities
Wherever Radar Alerting is allowed, your Stinger can locate police radars. Because of the hyper-intelligent and military grade Stinger patch antennas, your Stinger antenna offers unsurpassed sensitivity and accuracy.
Stinger Laser Alerting is extraordinarily sensitive. So much so, that your Stinger can pick up laser that was ‘fired’ at a car in front of you. In addition, Stinger Laser encompasses a breakthrough novelty: It is able to recognize and indicate the type of police laser gun.
If you so desire, your Stinger can also instantly deploy a shield of invisible light, the moment your car is being shot at by a laser gun. As a result, a speed measurement will be delayed for a few seconds, until the shield automatically withdraws.
Based on GPS, your Stinger can alert you to fixed speed traps, usually making for a fine alternative alerting system in countries where ‘Radar Alerting’ is not allowed. It is also essential anywhere, in order to alert you for fixed speed trap locations that make use of so-called ‘induction loops’ under the road.
The Stinger SpotList, an up-to-date and extensive database of fixed speed trap locations, can simply be placed on your Stinger by using the Stinger Desktop (Mac/PC) application. Of course, by the push of a button, you can also add and delete SpotList locations yourself.
In many countries the police makes use of automated systems in order to calculate your average speed over a fixed distance, generally referred to as: ‘Section Control’, ‘average speed trajectories’ or ‘SPECS’. During a Section Control, many drivers have no idea of their average speed and continuously keep looking at their speedometer, or start driving dangerously slow out of fear of getting a speeding ticket.
That is why Stinger has developed ‘Section Alerting’: not only will you be alerted when you are approaching and exiting a Section Control, but your Stinger will actually escort you through it. While in the Section Control trajectory your Stinger will continuously calculate your average ‘Section Control speed’. If at any time your average lies above the set speed limit, your Stinger will alert you with audio and visual signals.
The graphical displays of the DSI and VIP will furthermore depict a ‘happy face’ (good) or a ‘sad face’ (too fast) to instantly show you your status. Additionally, they show where you are in the Section Control trajectory and what the remaining distance is until you reach the end of the Section Control.
Not all speed checks get executed correctly. Sometimes police radars operate outside the legal radar frequency band widths, or have been set up at a wrong angle versus the road. It also happens that unclear photographs and/or inaccurate police work result in license plates being read incorrectly. So what if you get an unjust speeding ticket?
Generally, the license plate holder will be deemed guilty, unless he can prove his innocense. PoliceCheck helps you to meet this burden of evidence. Your Stinger records where you have driven, if you have encountered active speed traps, and what your speed has been. On top of that, your Stinger measures and records the exact frequency of every active radar speed trap you have passed. In short, thanks to PoliceCheck your Stinger can offer important assistance in appealing speeding tickets that are incorrect.
Your Stinger is equipped to receive, at a large distance, SafetySignals sent by radar or laser transmitters that can be used by – for instance – schools, road workers, police and emergency services. SafetySignals are decoded by your Stinger in real-time, providing you with clear audio and visual alerts much ahead of time.
SafetySignals can even use laser to transmit ‘car-to-car’ alerts. This enables a Stinger user who employs Stinger Laser to alert other Stinger users by initiating or relaying Safety Signals. In this way, a Stinger user who hits the brakes hard, generates a ‘Heavy Braking’ signal on the displays of other Stinger users in his vicinity.
If desired, your Stinger can do your mileage logging, making it elementary to keep track of your business versus private use of your automobile.
