Mazda MX5

On this Mazda MX5 we replaced the lost Cobra remote keys.

If you have an old Cobra alarm system and you have lost BOTH keys, you normally need a PIN number to program new keys to the alarm & immobiliser.  However if the PIN code is not available and all stickers are removed from the car do not despair. We at Cartronics can read the PIN number from you COBRA alarm & or immobiliser system and with this, program new keys for you.

Stinger radar, GPS & Laser diffuser system - Ferrari

Car: Ferrari

 

Model California

 

Mission : To install Stinger radar, GPS & Laser diffuser system

 

The Stinger Radar, GPS and Laser Jammer are the very best money can buy. The Stinger Card uses a very discrete control panel which is located inside the car. All other components are hidden, the GPS aerial is hidden and the front bumper houses the Laser Diffusers (jammers).

 

Such a discrete system, the Stinger benefits from updates via the PC for all GPS location information BUT the biggest benefit is the Laser diffusers are also UPDATED! So any new Police laser guns (new models or firmware updates) would normally work on any old (other makes) of Laser jammers. But the Stinger system will just update your system (automatically when you do GPS updates) and you will be fully protected!

 

Stealth, powerful & quite simply the best.
