Target Blu Eye
Target Blu Eye is based on TETRA technology, in the UK it is known as the Airwave Network which is widely used for the communication between different emergency/Police vehicles. Target Blu Eye is able to warn you in advance of approaching emergency services, such as Police cars - both marked and unmarked, Police motorbikes, fire engines and ambulances.
Target Blu Eye explained
Target Blu Eye is an in-vehicle device that informs you when there is an emergency vehicle close by - often long before you hearing it approaching emergency/Police vehicle when the sirens are being used.
Using TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio)technology, the Blu Eye alerts the driver there is an emergency vehicle in the area such as Police cars, Police vans, Police bikes, fire engines, ambulances, etc. This is thanks to fact that all emergency/Police vehicles in the UK use TETRA radios as standard. The Target Blu Eye will also warn to both marked and unmarked Police vehicles.
The Target Blu Eye will alert you via a 'control panel' (pictured below) installed on your vehicles front console, dashboard, windscreen, etc when there is an emergency vehicle within a kilometre radius, whether they are using their sirens or not. The Target Blue Eye promotes a safer driving attitude and ensures you will not need to make any dangerous maneuvers when an emergency vehicle is nearby.
On screen visual and audible tone alerts you to the type of vehicle within 1km of your vehicle. You can then move safely out of the way knowing you are not obstructing an emergency vehicle. There are two sensitivity modes, these are Highway and City mode.
Highway mode has the longest detection range which is ideal when travelling at high speed on a motorway for example.
City mode reduces the range of detection and is recommended for use of the Target Blu Eye in urban areas. The maximum range is approximately 1 kilometre.
Using this device will improve the safety of your driving in relation to emergency vehicles.
Target Blu Eye is completely legal to use in the as it simple tells you when there is an emergency vehicle close by. It cannot differentiate between police cars, ambulances and fire engines so you will only know there is an emergency vehicle approaching and you will not know the type of vehicle.
Who are Tunit?
The first Tunit product was created in 1998 to improve performance and fuel economy for Diesel Engines. Since then the product has been developed continually to work with Governments, Armed Forces, Companies and of course individual drivers to improve drive, performance and economy even further. The original Tunit and its more updated big brother the Tunit Advantage is an interactive computer that is a step beyond methods such as opening up engine computers and altering physical engine components.
How does it work?
The Tunit Works by careful and safe Modification of signals Sent from The Engines own control computer to the engine. Accelerator, air, fuel and load readings are accurately used to calculate improved signals that are delivered to the engine with digital precision and speed. The result is a smoother power and torque gain. More power is delivered throughout the rpm range and more importantly lower down were needed for improved take off and acceleration. This produces progressive power gains without sudden surges or dropping of power. The turbo or other mechanical parts are not directly altered, so there is no strain on this or other engine components.
The Tunit Advantage power upgrade now offers even more power & torque along with better fuel savings, the Tunit Advantage is designed to improve your diesel engines performance, specifically its power and torque. Typical improvements are delivery of smoother, more aggressive power, with an increase of up to 40%.
Customer surveys of over 9000 users also showed an average fuel saving of 12%.
The Advantage Tunit performance power upgrade can be manually adjusted for extra power. It is the only scientifically proven diesel tuning device shown to improve fuel economy and reduce harmful emissions by 27%.
- Increased power & torque.
- 12% Improved fuel economy
- Reduced carbon emissions
- 1 Year engine & driveline warranty
- 5 Year product warranty.
- Easy installation & adjustment.
Tunit Advantage diesel power upgrades have a tuning dial with 10 different settings which allows you to choose between more or less power, or to find a good combination of drive and economy while improving diesel performance in a much simpler and much more effective way than 'Chip Tuning'.
Using the adjustment dial you can customise your driving experience. The Tunit power upgrade is built on sturdy technology, coming in a watertight secure case with easy access to the adjustment.
WHY WE NEED A DASH CAM
The roads are never as safe as you think they are. In 2010, there were over 5 million traffic collisions. In your daily commute, there may be a chance of you being involved in a motor vehicle accident. Situations like these are often extremely stressful, and it is often difficult for drivers to recall the crucial details surrounding the incident. With a Dash Cam, drivers now find themselves having a reliable witness – protecting themselves from bearing the cost of liability. With an in-car dashboard camera, you can feel at ease knowing that there is always a dependable, silent witness with you at all times.
WHAT IS A DASH CAM?
An Extra Eye on the Road.
A dashboard camera (Dash Cam) is a specialized on-board surveillance camera that is designed to monitor and record driving incidents. Mounted to the windshield, the camera turns on automatically upon starting ignition, and actively records video footages with an auto-looping mechanism. It has real-time impact detection, whereupon sensing impact, the camera stores the incident footage in a secure location for later reviewing purposes. The footage can then be used as a form of supplementary evidence for insurance purposes, while protecting the driver against insurance frauds and hit-and-runs.

Why B&B Audioconcepts SoundProof Vehicles
Good car audio begins with properly treated doors and panels. Flexing metal panels and expanses of plastic cause a myriad of issues with car sound from bass cancelling road noise to annoying shakes rattles and vibrations. A flexing metal panel can effective sap the energy away from your speakers by creating inter-cancellation at the rear of your speaker while other surfaces can produce unwanted nasty resonances which colour the sound. Our sound deadening and panel lining products go as far as possible in eradicating these products while our wave diffuser will absorb the sound issuing from the rear of your speakers to prevent that sound reflecting back into the speakers. The importance of sound treatment such as the Skinz range should never be underestimated.
Hanging electronic equipment together is a sophisticated science in itself. Connection was introduced by Audison in the early 200's and consists of ranges of products for wiring power to amplifiers, amplifiers to speakers and head units to amplifiers. Cables and interconnects are available in three different grades depending on how discerning the listener and their choice of equipment is. Just as you wouldn't run your Ferrari on Gin you wouldn't connect your Audison Voce speakers to a Voce amplifier with bell wire. Aside from the quality requirement, when dealing with the extreme current capabilities of large amplifiers to use inferior power wiring could prove extremely dangerous!
