Using a Radar Detector in Ireland
What are the speeding fines in Ireland?
The usual ticket for speeding inside and outside of town is 80 plus drivers penalty points. Collecting 12 penalty points you will lose your license.
If the fine of 80 has not been paid within 28 days it will increase to 120. Now you have to pay within 56 days or you will be summoned to court and will receive 4 penalty points. The fine can then increase up to 800.
What is Police using to measure your speed in Ireland?
K- Band radars, Multanova radars and Gatso radars and other lower-band powered systems.
Lasers are also being used, such as Gosafe vans and portable laser guns for which you will need a Laser jammer in order to stay fully protected.
What are the recommended detectors for Ireland?
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! Laser Jammers would be a wise choice thanks to the wide use of Laser measuring devices.
What is the recommended setting for my detector?
- K NARROW
- K FILTER LOW (DEPENDING ON FALSE ALERTS)
- K OFF
- MRCD OFF
- MRCT OFF
- GATSO ON
- LASER ON
- IF = LOT OF FALSE ALERTS "THEN" AUTO CITY

What if I have athermic window, can I still use portable detector?
If your car's windshield 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 ».
