Car Radar Detectors

We are referred by the major car dealers in Auckland and are New Zealand's experts on radar and jammer systems from LaserElite, AL Priority, Escort, UnidenGenevo and Stinger.   We can supply and install the right radar for your needs, from windscreen mounted portable radar detectors to fully installed stealth radars and laser alert systems.

We test our radar detectors with our own actual radar and laser guns, the same type used by New Zealand police.

Car Bluetooth Systems

We can add Bluetooth in your car. giving you handsfree for phone calls, Bluetooth streaming for Spotify, Pandora, podcasts, or internet radio.  We upgrade or integrate Bluetooth into many European cars such as Audi, Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Maserati, and others.  Alternatively, we can change the entire stereo system in the dash depending on your car and your needs.


Car Reverse Cameras

In many parts of the world, reverse cameras are required in cars by law.  We can help with backing camera in almost any car available in Auckland.  Using either a low profile reverse mirror replacement with built-in LCD screen, dash mounted monitors or integrating into a factory screen or upgraded stereo, there's a range of options to suit a huge range of cars and trucks.
