Target Blu Eye


Emergency Vehicle Alert, Warns you of approaching Emergency Services

Such as marked and unmarked Police Cars, Ambulances and Fire Engines

Target Blu Eye warns of any radio activity from emergency vehicles alerting a driver to the presence of Ambulance, Fire Engine or Police cars. Listening for activity on emergency services radio without intercepting or monitoring them, the Target Blu warns of the presence of emergency service vehicles. Drivers receive a visible warning on a small, neat display via a number of LED’s which change colour dependent on how close the vehicle is allowing them to take evasive action in a safe and controlled manner.

Is It Legal?

Yes, the use of Target Blu Eye is legal since the system is only informing the driver whether an emergency service vehicle is nearby. Moreover, Target Blu Eye cannot differentiate between police vehicles, ambulances or fire engines. You will be warned of all types of emergency vehicles in the same way.

We would like to emphasize that Target Blu Eye is not able to decode the radio messages broadcasted by the Airwave network.

Mark and Lynn's purchase of a Lunar Motorhome

We came to TC late late 2017 we had been camping for several years and felt that we had to move up a league ! we were considering a caravan or mobile home , We had brief looks at other sites and to be honest we were novices in this area . 

When we arrived the first impression was this company was a professional outfit with a welcoming environment that took pride in its presentation ( Offices and workshops) also the range that was available , We met Pete in sales and explained our situation that we were both very new to this and basically did not want we needed and what would be practical, Pete sat us down and gave a detailed explanation of the types owning a motorhome and what would suit our needs and budget , We were then directed to two motorhomes that met our requirements the team then took the time explain every detail so that we could make an informed choice ( All within our budget and no up selling ) After some direction and thought we purchased a motor home ,The team and Pete then set about preparing our purchase taking into consideration our needs , Also Pete gave us several informed information on owning driving and where to go including hook ups and sites to park, We are now very proud owners of our motor home which have been prepared to our needs we cannot find a fault. 

Overall I have been in the motor trade for many years and Pete and his team were professional friendly and always have the time to help you ,Myself and my wife would recommend T&C to anyone ,Every detail was taken care of and we are looking forward to using our new purchase Mark and Lynn
