    I have just picked up a new van with a outsmart the thief Gemini alarm. Problem is the only way anyone can tell if it is alarmed is the small flashing light on the dash. Ok( sort of) if anyone looks at it but not with blinds shut. I asked for extra l.e.d's so people could clearly see it was alarmed but outsmart said it wasn't possible because of voltage drop. Has anyone overcome this?

    Vanbitz fit lots of external LEDs with the Growler.

    Claiming volt drop is nonsense. All they need to do is use a Constant Current driver.

    Whoever fitted yours might not want to, or be able to, fit them but volt drop certainly isn't the reason why.
