    Damn that sucks. I guess I'll be upgrading. Are you able to comment on when the new features will be available?

    Assisted Radar Filter (ARF) is currently available but still has some issues on some phones.

    This new option is only available on AL Priority Rev. 4.0 Control Units paired with a GPS antenna.
    - Holding the MUTE button in your ALP Connect app (both Android and iOS) during a radar alert, saves the frequency and strength of that radar signal into ARF memory of the AL Priority Control Unit
    - Once saved, the AL Priority will only alert to these frequencies again if signal strength is stronger than the saved value
    - The AL Priority will filter radar frequencies stored in ARF whether used over a wired Control Set or over the ALP Connect app
    - Up to 16 radar sources may be stored in ARF
    - Once full the next radar frequency to be saved will overwrite the oldest saved entry, and so on
    - ARF memory in the Control Unit can be erased with the reset to default settings option.

    This was designed to help with the use of the NR in vehicles that put out false K band alerts.. Allowing it to record the frequency and level on the vehicle so that instead of band segmenting out a large block which is more dangerous the ALP will ignore only the select frequency range and only at the strength of the vehicle. You can also use this to help with BSM alerts that are weak and in ranges you would not typically want to band segment.

    Before looking at an Escort Radar Detector you should really check out Uniden Detectors.. Uniden R1 & R3 are the best performing radar detectors for the money.

    I just upgraded to hw4. Now my old BT doesn't work. I hope my str+ still works. I have a Uniden r7 for radar but still user the str+ in VA. The uniden work much faster than the str+.

    BT module should not be affected. Did you reconnect it correctly and not accidentally reverse the cables on the BT module.

    I purchased the new HW4 cpu, gps sensor, and TX sensor. I can't find any documentation on making sure the lasers are firing with this new setup. I used to test my setup once a month to make sure each laser is firing with the remote tester. Is there no way of doing this now except rigging up a gopro to test these above 25 mph?
    ***UPDATE***
    I was advised that the ALP test fires each laser and detects if a laser is not firing during the self test. I do hope this is correct. Thanks for this info Tom.

    Other than looking at your install w/ an IR camera as you drive by above 25mph you cannot see the IR outputs.
    The AL-P operates as Parking proximity detector always & some cellphones cams are IR sensing & if you look at the Transponders in the dark you can see them flashing ~once a sec.

    The camera would be mounted in front of the alp sensor on the vehicle, with the proper filter, not on the side of the road at 25 and above. This however would not be needed as Tom stated the system test fires the laser during self test. As long as the alp lasers are firing, during a self test, I am good. Now I don't have to check them once a month. Thanks.
