SPEEDMETER - LEGALIZATION FUNCTION:

This feature is used to legalize the device for use in countries where the radar detectors are prohibited. The detector stops alerting to radars and lasers. Only your current speed will appear on the display and all radar and laser detection settings will disappear from the menu. When entering the radar settings submenu, a notification of deactivated functions will appear.

To activate the Speedmeter, the detector must be turned ON, hold down the “brightness control” and “change sensitivity” buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds. Option SPEEDMETER 1 will appear on the display, if you hold the buttons longer, you can select a second mode SPEEDMETER 2, with a classic display layout.

To deactivate the speedmeter function, it is necessary to update the detector in the usual way and all functions will be fully functional again, for help with updating continue to page 15.


DATABASE UPDATES:

It is recommended to update the GPS database once a month. The detector can be updated in two ways:

On these websites, you will find help on how to update and also a newsletter form, so we will keep you informed about every newly released update.


GENEVO PRO II CONNECTION SCHEME:

øídící jednotka GENEVO PRO II

A) GENEVO PRO II CONTROL UNIT

The Control Unit is usually placed in a fuse box, or in a space above pedals, using a stripping tape, or double-sided sticky tape. For connecting individual components follow the markings on the control box. All can be easily done thanks to plug-in connectors. When connecting individual accessories please mind the plug you are trying to connect the cables into, as they must be connected to a correct plug, in case it isn’t the system might not work properly or be permanently damaged. Also, be mindful of placing the control unit so that the speaker on top of it is placed facing in free space.

B) DISPLAY

The display is usually placed in the vehicle cabin on your consideration using double-sided sticky tapes, or magnetic tape. We recommend placing the display in an easily accessible area.

C) GPS ANTENNA

Secure the GPS antenna with a suitable sealant or double-sided adhesive tape to ensure directing the antenna at the sky. We recommend positioning it on the dashboard of the vehicle. If you place the GPS antenna under the instrument panel, the antenna must not be overshadowed by metal elements (beware of metal-plated and heated windshields). you can check the antenna’s functionality on the display. If the GPS icon glows constantly, it means it works as intended, in case it’s blinking it means that it can not find a GPS signal. It can take up to 12 minutes for the first time to fix the GPS signal.

D) SPEAKER

The signaling speaker should be placed somewhere in the leg-space of the driver, or passenger. Select the location of the speaker so that the alerts can be heard clearly.

E) RADAR ANTENNA HD+ / HDM+

The radar antenna is highly sensitive equipment that can detect multiple types of police radar signals. The correct installation is crucial to its proper functionality and good sensitivity of the detector. The antenna is mounted to the front of the car, usually behind its plastic bumper or behind the front grille in front of the vehicle radiator. It must be installed in the place from where the front part has a good view of the road ahead.

It is ideal to locate the antenna into the bumper vent, 30-50 cm above the ground. If you choose to mount the antenna so that the bumper covers its front part, check the material from which the bumper is made and whether it contains a metal reinforcement. Some types of plastic can weaken radar waves and reduce the efficiency of the detector. Never mount the antenna behind metal parts of the vehicle! When installing the antenna, you can use self-tapping screws in places where the nut can be attached from the other side, as well as classic nut bolts. After selecting a suitable location for the antenna and the type of screws, drill two to four screw holes. It is recommended that the antenna is attached with 4 screws. The antenna cable can be slightly bent. Firstly, attach the antenna with two screws crosswise against each other and tighten them partly, then mount the remaining two screws.

In some vehicles, it is advisable to carry out the installation using a special support plate that is included in the packaging. It has the shape of the letter “L” and is made of a thick steel plate with pre-drilled holes. Firstly, screw the support plate to the appropriate place, and then attach the antenna to the plate. In addition, keep the antenna as far away as possible from heat sources such as the engine radiator and air conditioner from which the antenna may heat up. Failure to observe a sufficient distance will not guarantee proper operation and may cause the antenna to overheat due to increased temperature.

F) LASER SYSTEM CONTROL UNIT

The laser system control unit is installed in the interior of the vehicle, either under the dashboard or someplace similar to the GENEVO PRO control unit. The only important thing is that the control unit must not get into contact with water. Connect the control unit power cord to the control unit using the dedicated pins. NOTE: 1A fuse is placed inside the control box. If you require an extra fuse it can be installed on the cables (not necessary).

After the laser system control unit is connected to the GENEVO PRO control unit, connect the sensors into one of the “F” slots for front sensors, or “R” slots for rear sensors. In case you use multiple sensors connect into the dedicated slots.

G) LASER SENSORS

Laser sensors can be mounted on the front of the vehicle in the front grill, above the bumper or in the rear of the vehicle. Be extra careful to not damage the wiring, sensors, or connectors during the installation, as it will void the product warranty. To ensure cleaner looks of your vehicle we recommend using plexiglass „Perspex” to hide the sensors behind it. For more information about Perspex glass please contact your distributor. To drive the cables to the fuse box, please use the original cable pass. In case there is not enough space you will need to drill an extra hole for the connector and the cable. Be extra careful again not to damage the cables or other car parts. After you finish the cable installation, you should seal the gap using silicon or other fillings to prevent water and humidity from entering the vehicle. Check the cable if it’s long enough to reach the desired place. The sensor cable is 1 m long, the control box cable is 4 m long. A total of 5 meters of cable can be extended with an extension cable (optional accessory) for another 2.5 meters. When extending the cables, use shrink tape with a heat gun to achieve moisture tightness.

Place the sensors so that they have a clear view to the front or the rear using the included holders and double-sided duck tape. If necessary, you can bend the holder into required position. Make sure that the sensor is held firmly and can withstand vibrations caused by driving and is still in horizontal front/rear facing position.

EXPLANATORY NOTES:

Radar frequency bands: Different radar bands are used to measure speed, most often Ka, K, or newer MultaRadars and GATSO Radars that have extremely low transmit power and are hard to detect. Different bands and frequencies are used in each country, it is therefore necessary to have the detector set up correctly for each country. Recommended settings for European countries can be found at: Support - Recommended settings

  • Ka - One of the most commonly used radar band for speed measuring.
  • K - The most widely used band at all, is comonnly used for automatic doors at petrol stations and shops, adaptive cruise control, etc. Devices operating in the K band cause false alerts, so their quality filtration is essential.
  • X – Minimally used band, mainly insome Eastern European countries.
  • CD/CT MultaRadars - Modernradars used in Austria, Iceland, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain.
  • DAHUA - Modulated 3D K band based radar with extremely low power output.
  • GATSO radars - Another modern radars, they can be stationary or mobile. They are used in Belgium, France, Finland, Great Britain, Lithuania, Netherlands, Slovenia. They are divided into RT2/RT3/RT4 - a higher number means a more modern version. The detection of these radars is possible only by the latest and most sensitive detector.
Narrow: Narrowed bands. Frequency of a specific part of aband is detected in the narrowed band to increase sensitivity and eliminate false alerts.

Wide: Broadband mode, on the other hand, searches for example the entire Ka band from 33.4 GHz to 36.0 GHz. Use this setting only if absolutely necessary, as it shortens the detection distance and increases the number of false alerts.

Filters and false alerts: For the correct functioning of the detector, it is essential to filter unwanted radar signals from sources other than police radars (eg adaptive cruise control of modern vehicles), so that the detector reports only police radars. The filter settings are further described on page 7 in the manual (ALERTS NOTIFICATION SETTINGS).

Laser measurement: Laser speed measurement is based on emitting an ultra narrow and short-time beam of electromagnetic light at the level of infrared radiation. The signal is transmitted for a very short time at a specific place (usually car’s licence plate) and therefore, it is almost imposible to detect it in advance. The only effective protection against laser speed measurement is an additional active laser system.
