    They're called 'scanners'. Yep, their original purpose is to announce the presence of a vehicle security system and deter theives before they 'choose' your car.

    The idea is they see the lights from far away, know that there's a security system on board, and they'll just think of picking on a less secure car. It's not foolproof but its a deterrent.

    if you are talking on what otep's saying, its a radar detector. i have not seen something here in the Philippines but is widely used in australia, in europe and in the states.

    sa states, nakakabili nyan sa radioshack.
