Default LTI Tru Speed Police Laser Gun

LTI is releasing a new smaller and easier to use police laser gun to the traffic enforcement industry.

It is called the LTI TruSpeed™ (not True Speed). Like the Kustom ProLite+, the LTI TruSpeed™ appears "aimed" at mobile motor-cycle-based police laser speed enforcement.

Even though it appears to be quite a bit more portable and lighter (less than 48 ounces), the "lasertech" TruSpeed™ is range limited to 2000 feet, it appears to be quite weather resistant with seals and rubberized edges.

Expected to retail at less than $2000 (the first police laser gun to do so), the Laser Technology TruSpeed™ is poised to capture a large following as police laser provides a number of significant advantages over portable hand-held police radar and now with the pricing of this technology approaching the costs of conventional police radar hand-helds their adoption should be a no brainer, especially when one considers that the conviction rates with police laser are higher (meaning less expense for municipalities on the back-end).

I have included reference to the Laser Technology's TruSpeed™ online marketing information:

PS: (Looks a bit like an Outrun video production!)

Default LTI TruSpeed laser

Hey Veil Guy:

I tested a TruSpeed last fall and liked it. It’s light, the pistol grip is angled to keep the mass centered and it’s easy to point. It feels more substantial than the Kustom Signals Pro Lite Plus and since it has a pistol grip, it also looks more like a speed laser. Cops like equipment that looks familiar, something that has led some to question Kustom's decision to make the Pro Lite a binocular-style unit not seen outside Europe. (The Kustom unit even has a lanyard, like a pair of sunglasses, which lets you wear it around your neck when not in use, but I've yet to see an officer do that. They'd probably die of embarrassment.)

This is a fourth-generation laser and LTI’s first model to use a polycarbonate housing. The case front is padded to protect the collimating lenses and the chassis is aluminum. Power comes from a pair of NiCd C-cells, which should give it enough juice for two or three 8-hour shifts.

The feature set is competitive: continuous mode (depress the trigger and it updates speeds until released); weather mode (range-gated to ignore vehicle glass, precipitation and nearby obstructions); 1X ‘scope with HUD speed display; rear LCD with range/speed display and all function buttons on a waterproof membrane pad.

I worked city traffic with the TruSpeed side-by-side with an UltraLyte 200 LR. It’s quicker to acquire targets and more resistant to operator shake, not that the Ultralyte is any slouch in those areas.

Range is limited to 2,000 feet and there’s no RS-232 serial data port. This keeps it from competing with the Ultralyte, whose serial port allows it to be used for accident investigation and mapping, among other functions. The range limitation isn’t very significant; most officers don’t target vehicles at that distance anyway.

The big news is price: $1,995 suggested retail. This is the first speed laser to break the $3,000 barrier, meaning it’s closing the price gap with radar. Bottom line: expect to see more lasers in service.
