VISOR AND GLASS MOUNT RADAR DETECTORS
One of our most popular radar procedures is to hardwire a
concealed power line into the overhead visor area for your
portable radar detector. This allows for quick and easy removal
and reinstallation. Most importantly, a hidden cable eliminates
the cigarette lighter cord from hanging in your vision.
We offer all of the latest Escort and Passport radar and
laser defense systems.
Now, it’s “Hasta la vista, baby” to traffic
tickets forever. The K40 undetectable provides the ultimate
in radar detection and protection.
With a radar/laser receiver mounted in the front bumper of
your car, and another mounted in the rear bumper, the K40
not only detects the radar/laser; it also tells you which
direction its coming from. Separate audible and visual alerts
for both front and rear detection are custom installed in
your instrument cluster.

into the instrument cluster.
K40 provides the fastest, most powerful stop cop technology
available. K40 is so confident they will pay any radar ticket
you get for the first year of ownership.
STEALTH RADAR DETECTORS
In the early 80’s, EARMARK began stealth radar detector
installations by converting visor mount Escort radar detectors
to remote mount. We separated the control panel from the cast
antenna bell and its circuitry. The control panel was flushed
into the dash, or into a custom trim panel replacing the ashtray.
In many cases, we made the system further undetectable by
locating the controls, strength meter and buzzer as individual
elements within the dash instrument panel. The antenna was
installed in a non-metallic watertight case and mounted flush
in the bumper, behind the grill or behind plastic trim. A
shielded cable connected the nose and dash circuitry.
Our customers got the best radar detector technology that
was available at the time while having it totally concealed.
A remote unit eliminates the worry over “crash &
grab” thefts and ends the inconvenience of constantly
removing and reattaching a visor or glass mount with every
stop and go. Vehicle owners, especially those with exotic
sports cars, also noted that state boys where often agitated
by radar detectors and the implication that the drivers intended
to speed. Remote mounts eased the problem since the radar
unit is undetectable.
Later, radar detector manufacturers began to supply multi-component
radar products that were designed for remote installations.
Also, this brought about separate front and rear radar detectors
and laser diffusers. EARMARK continues to elevate the installation
to a new and higher level of integration. We convert underdash
radar control panels to separate indash elements that are
often so integrated you cannot detect them until they are
operational. We also have pioneered inventive ways of mounting
the radar sensors and laser jammers so they perform at their
optimum level with improved concealment.
Over the years EARMARK has specialized in undetectable radar
detector installations on countless Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis,
Vipers, Vettes and everything else that goes fast. These car
owners have so enjoyed the performance and convenience of
these systems that many now equip every car, truck or SUV
they own with an undetectable. Click on Radar

Why a laser detector/jammer unit versus
just a laser detector?
When the trigger on a radar gun is pulled, the targeted vehicle
is usually a tenth to an eighth mile away in urban areas or
a quarter mile away in rural areas. The radar signal emits
from the source in a conical cone shaped pattern. At a quarter
mile the main focus of the radar beam is 20 to 25 feet in
diameter. Consequently there is a lot of stray radar “overspray”
which can be picked up by trailing cars as far away as two
to three miles depending upon terrain and traffic density.
This usually provides plenty of time to judge the intensity
and react accordingly.
A laser signal on the other hand has a diameter of 16 to
24 inches at a quarter mile range. There is no “overspray”
to give you an advance warning. So if your laser detector
is triggered while speeding, you might as well begin slowing
down to accept your ticket.
A laser jammer constantly transmits a shifting, oscillating
infrared light pattern. This combines with the official laser
beam on the bounce back to the laser gun preventing it from
locking on for a fix reading for at least 8 seconds and up
to 15 seconds. This allows you ample time to check and safely
reduce your speed if necessary.
Radio frequency transmission and light transmission are regulated
by separate governing commissions. While a laser diffuser
is legal, a radar jammer constitutes an illegal radio transmission.
