Get the message across with Roadmaster



Cars these days are no longer means of transport, but they have more or less become a fashion statement as people pimp up their rides at one extreme end, while others perform just minor modifications such as a change in rims. Auto accessory manufacturer Roadmaster USA has just unveiled a couple of scrolling message car systems to help you get the message across to other drivers. One of them is the scrolling Digital License Plate Frame while the other is a scrolling Rear Deck Message System, and either one retails for $60.

Both scrolling systems are equipped with a vocabulary of 99 phrases, where some of them include Help me”, “Slow down”, “Turning left”, “Your lights aren’t working”, and “Baby on Board”, with the added option that most of you will find most interesting – the ability to program up to five different messages with a cap of 120 characters each. That’s roughly the equivalent of one short text message. These messages can be combined or repeated, with both speed and brightness being adjustable via the wireless remote. Installing either scrolling system is dead easy, despite the 12 volt hardwiring process.

Sounds like a very interesting idea, and it is certainly great if you want to advertise a product or service. Of course, I strongly suspect that nearly everyone who purchased this would have entered a scrolling message that sounds off rude drivers. Heck, it is a great tool to use if you want to sell off your current vehicle, announce to the world your sports team allegiance, or even your personal philosophy. Take note that the Roadmaster Scrolling Rear Deck Message System can be used as a standalone device at a shop or store to display snippets on the latest offers, opening and closing times, as well as various announcements. Do check out with your state and local regulations to see if scrolling LED products can be used in a moving vehicle.

So if this thing is installed on the rear deck behind my rear set, how do I change the messages while driving? I would assume a message like “your lights aren’t working” would only be something you would know you needed to use while already driving.

Does it have a remote or something?

Yeah I did mention that this came with a remote, but I have absolutely no idea how the remote works *sheepish*
