GENEVO PRO Radar Detector

Congratulations on your purchase of world‘s most intelligent radar and laser detector GENEVO PRO.

Main functions of GENEVO PRO
GENEVO PRO is the most advanced detector from GENEVO family and is designed to protect the driver from speeding fines. GENEVO PRO communicates with driver in English language and its main functions are detection of microwave radars (K / Ka bands), red light cameras and sectional speed cameras (using its own GPS database), MultaRadars CT/CD and radar Gatso RT3 and RT4, or jamming laser guns. It also provides a quick deactivation of all functionality via removing the magnetic display. GENEVO PRO also displays connectivity status of GPS antenna and all connected radars and accessories. Disconnected GPS is signaled by flashing GPS icon on the screen, and accessories are signaled in the same way by flashing the HWY, A-C or CTY icon.

Notifications:
Text warning and voice alert appears on GENEVO PRO during radar alert. The strength of the signal and beeps expresses the intensity of the received signal. Signal strength has ten levels. GPS alerts are reported by voice. For example “Speed Camera”. Accessories alerts are reported by voice: „Laser”.

Control:

  1. First button MENU / ON-OFF
    Short press: You will enter into the setup menu. During the signaling radar, you will mute the volume. The next alarm will be reported again in the standard volume.
    Long press: Turn ON / OFF GENEVO PRO. During radar signaling, you enter the menu via long press.
  2. Second button BRIGHTNESS / ALERT SUPPRESSION
    Short press: You can change the brightness of the display – Bright -> Dim -> Smart Dark -> Full Dark.
    Long Press: If you hold it during an alert you will mark the place of false radar reporting so at a given point detector during the next passage will be suppressed. If you suppress a false alert, the detector will not detect radars. Hold button during the „suppressed“ radar alert and this listing will be canceled. After next passage radar alert will be signaled acoustically.
  3. Third button SENSITIVITY / ADD YOUR OWN GPS POINT
    Short press: You can scroll between Highway / City / Auto City modes. In City or Auto City modes the sensitivity of K / Ka bands can be reduced according to user preference. Long Press: Add your own GPS point.
  4. Buttons ⋀⋁
    Short press: Changing volume of the detector.

Menu:
Press first button to enter the menu and move between categories.
Press VOLUME ⋀ or ⋁ (on the right side of the detector) to change your setting within a category. To complete this change, simply wait a few seconds without pressing a button. The unit will display “Setting Completed” to confirm your selection. Alternatively, you can get out of the menu by pressing the third button. After five seconds of inactivity, the menu will automatically save and quit. Alternatively, you can quit the settings menu by pressing the mid button.

Items in the menu are as follows

(recommended settings are highlighted)

  • Front Radar: On / Off – Switches on Front Radar functionality. In case this option is turned off, further menu items controlling the Front Radar are not displayed.

SpeedMeter Option

This function is intended for the legalization of the detector when used in countries where radar detectors are prohibited. The detector stops alerting to radars and lasers. Nothing but your current speed will appear on the display and all radar and laser detection settings will disappear from the menu. When entering the menu, you will be notified of deactivated functions. To activate the Speedmeter, you must have the detector switched on and press and hold together the second and third button on the display for five seconds. Then (SpeedMeter ON) appears on the display and the radar and laser detection functions are completely deactivated. To re-activate the detector, simply update it the usual way through the computer and all functions will be available again.

GENEVO PRO CONTROL UNIT

The control Unit is usually placed in a fuse box, space above pedals, using stripping tape to wires in your car, or using double-sided duck tape. Connecting individual components is obvious thanks to writing 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 so the GENEVO PRO 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.

DISPLAY

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

GPS ANTENNA

Place the GPS antenna using double-sided duck tape to a place where the antenna can see the sky. Ideally on the dashboard of your car. If you are placing it under the dashboard, make sure that the antenna is not covered by any metal objects. you can check the antennas 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. The first time it can take 1-5 minutes for the GPS to connect.

RADAR ANTENNA HD+ / HDM+

The antenna captures signals emitted by radars; the choice of the installation place is, therefore, crucial to its proper functioning and good sensitivity of the detector. The antenna is mounted to the front of the car, usually into 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 sales package. It has the shape of the letter “L” and is made of thick steel plate with pre-drilled holes. Firstly, screw the support plate to the appropriate place, and then attach the antenna to the plate.

LASER SYSTEM CONTROL UNIT

LASER SYSTEM

Control unit is installed in the interior of the vehicle, either under the dashboard or under the padding, however you see fit. 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 extra fuse it canbe installed on the cables (not necessary). After the laser system control unit is connected to the GENEVO PRO hub, connect the sensors into one of the „S” slots. In case you use multiple sensors connect all of the regardless of the order.

LASER SENSORS

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 cable, sensor or connector during installation, as it will terminate your warranty. To ensure better looks of your vehicle we recommend to use plexiglass „Perspex” to hide the sensors. For more information about the 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 there you will need to drill an extra hole for the connector and the cable. Please be extra careful again to not damage cables or other car installation. After you finish the cable installation, you should seal the gap using silicon or other fillings to prevent water and humidity entering the vehicle. Check the cable if its long enough to reach the desired destination. When you have connected together with a cable from the sensor (1m long) with the control box cable (4m long) make sure to use waterproofing duck tape. You can use hot air or lighter to make the seal even tighter. 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 cruising and is still in horizontal front/rear facing position.
