Using a Radar Detector in Finland

What is Police using to measure your speed in Finland?
The Local police are using a variety of radars, from low powered 24,100 GHz to 34,7 GHz The tricky part is the use of Multanova radars and Multaradars.
Lasers: Are also used mainly around bigger cities.
What are the recommended detectors for Finland?
Thanks to the use of Multaradars we can safely recommend only the Genevo ONE M from portable detectors. From custom installed units look at Genevo PRO M. For both products, the M stands for Multaradar detections which only a few detectors on the market can successfully detect!

What if I have an athermic window, can I still use portable detector?
If your car has a windshield that has either blue, magenta or green tint, it could be athermic/ metal plated and your portable detector will not work correctly. You can always check with your car dealer if you are not sure. If you do have such window, you should get a custom installed detector. More about types of windshields here ».
