Adaptiv 2.0 TPX Radar Detector Main Console with Visual Alert
Don't waste time and energy trying to make an automotive radar detector work on your motorcycle. Go straight to the Adaptiv 2.0 TPX radar and laser detector, which is built specifically for motorcycle use. That means it will stand up to rain and vibration, the buttons are sized right to use with gloves on, and the visual alert is easily seen even in bright sunlight. Here are some of the other features of the Adaptiv 2.0 TPX radar detector system that make it ideal for motorcycle use:
* Exceptional Radar (X, K, Ka) and Laser Detection.
* Water Resistant Construction
* Shock and Vibration Resistant Design
* Oversize, Backlit Control Buttons
* Angled, Backlit, Daylight Visible LCD
* Compatible with other Communication or Audio Systems
* Simple Installation
* Ultra bright, adjustable LED Visual Alert
* Includes Quick Release Mount Plate
Wireless Headset and other Mounts sold separately so you can get exactly what you need for your motorcycle set-up.
A lot! The TPX™ System comes with a Wiring Harness so you can easily connect to your bike's power source, making installation a breeze. Its water resistant construction means that you don't have to worry about shielding it from the rain. Large buttons are designed so that you can operate it with riding gloves. Its top positioned, angled, backlit LCD allows you to actually see the display from your riding position, day or night. Vibration and shock resistant design ensures that it'll last on your bike. It is portable so you can take it with you on your lunch stop and don't have to worry about theft. It also means that you can use it on multiple bikes, and even your car (if you have one of those four-wheeled things).
All these features are great for motorcycle use, but does it really work? You bet! The TPX System detects ALL police radar and laser bands. But don't take our word for it. The System is certified by Speed Measurement Laboratories, Inc., the leading independent evaluator of radar detectors in the market today, and has received a Four Star rating from Radar Roy, the leading expert in conducting real-world radar detector evaluation.
"Thanks for coming up with this great radar detector. I have used your detector for 5,500 miles on my K1200S and cannot say enough about the features, function and early warning front and rear. I can't say enough, waterproof, visual, and ear pieces have worked so well that I would recommended this radar detector to everyone that has a motorcycle. A job well done by adaptive and I look forward to any new products or upgrades that may be coming."
"I wanted to say thanks; I bought your Radar detector and within 4 months it saved me so many times. I realize I get carried away sometimes and frustrated and careless on the California free way but I know I have to slow down. Track days are my chance to open up my GSXR. I should have put it in my car, a week before I deployed to Iraq I must have triggered a photo camera in my 1969 mach 1. I just got the ticket and photo in the mail... Anyway money well spent and thanks."

Frequently Asked Questions:
Are radar and laser detectors legal?
In the United States, radar and laser detectors are legal in passenger vehicles and motorcycles in all states with the exception of Virginia, Washington D.C., and military bases. Radar and laser detectors are illegal in the U.S. in commercial vehicles weighing over 10,000 lbs.
In Canada, radar and laser detectors are legal in the provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan.
How well does the TPX Motorcycle Radar and Laser System perform?
The TPX System has been performance certified by Speed Measurement Laboratories, Inc. Speed Measurement Laboratories is an independent laboratory that specializes in the testing of radar and laser detectors. It is regarded by many as the foremost expert in the industry. To obtain this certification, the TPX had to pass the same exact tests as other brands such as Valentine, Beltronics, and Escort.
The TPX System also received a Four Star rating from Radar Roy, a retired police officer and a certified radar instructor with over 25 years of experience in the radar detection industry.
What radar bands does the TPX System detect and does it offer 360 degree protection?
The TPX System detects ALL radar and laser bands used by law enforcement agencies throughout the US including X, K, and Superwide Ka bands. It also provides 360 degree protection against both radar and laser.
How is the TPX System different than other radar detectors?
The TPX is a fully customizable, complete system designed specifically for motorcycles. When used in conjunction with the model specific Mount, Wireless Headset and/or Visual Alert, it safely and effectively alerts you to police radar and laser signals. In addition, its angled LCD, large buttons, and water, vibration, and shock resistant design all add up to a combination of features you won’t find in other radar detector system. Simply put, we’ve thought of everything.
How does the TPX compare to the other radar detectors?
Our field testing has shown the TPX's radar and laser detection performance to be on par with some of the most expensive automotive radar detectors available. This testing has been verified by Speed Measurement Laboratories, the most highly-regarded, independent test lab in the industry. With motorcycle-specific features that aren’t available on any automotive detector, you won’t find a better system for your bike.
What accessories do I need other than the TPX Main Console?
You will need a Mount. The Main Console can be mounted with the TPX handle Bar Mount or a RAM Mount Set-Up.
If you wear a full or open face helmet, we recommend the TPX Wireless Headset.
If you don’t wear a full or open face helmet, we recommend the TPX Visual Alert.
If you have an existing communication or audio system that you want to connect the TPX system to, you should contact the manufacturer to determine the appropriate wiring connector. The TPX system provides a 3.5mm mono, female output jack for this purpose.
Can I use the TPX System in more than one motorcycle or in my car?
Yes. The TPX System is designed to be easily removable for use in multiple vehicles. If you want to use the system in another motorcycle, you will need to purchase the appropriate Mount, a TPX Wiring Harness, and a TPX Visual Alert (if you are using one) for each additional bike.
If you want to use the TPX System in a car, you will need to purchase the TPX Automotive Mount. Note that the angled LCD screen is optimized for motorcycle riding positions. While all the features will work in a car, it may be difficult to see the LCD screen when mounted on some dashboards.
