We made Ignition Interlock Compare because there seemed to be a lack of readily available information about ignition interlock devices. Getting a DUI is stressful, and many do not know where to start when it comes to choosing the right interlock device. Ignition interlock laws are mandated on a state by state basis. Most interlock users will have access to a few different interlock devices in their area, but it’s up to them to research the differences between each device.
You got a DUI and are ordered to get an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle. You have a choice between various devices, and will be paying a lot of money to to have the unit installed and calibrated. Sometimes an interlock device is a several year commitment. Why not make sure you’re choosing the right device for your preferences? We give interlock users a place to leave a review on the interlock they are using. In the age of Amazon, consumers usually have a place to review feedback for the items they are purchasing. Why shouldn’t this industry be any different?
Some interlock devices are detachable, which means you can remove the unit from your vehicle at night and avoid having to wait several minutes for the device to warm up the next morning (many interlock devices take a while to warm before starting the vehicle in cold temperatures). Some ignition interlock devices offer “remote lockout codes” to be used if a user fails enough test’s, which put the interlock device in lockout mode. If you get locked out of an interlock device that does not have this capability, you may need to have your vehicle towed to the installer for them to re-set your device, which means a few failed tests can end up costing several hundred dollars. Many consumers don’t know about these issues until it’s too late, and it’s not going to be easy to get an interlock device removed and have another one installed.
We do this for free. You don’t need to give us your contact info and wait for someone to get back to you. We’ve simply put the info in one place, provided a tool for users to compare between the different devices, and read reviews on the interlock device they feel best fits their needs and budget.
