Please got to https://www.stingerradarusa.com/stinger-desktop and download the Stinger Desktop Ver. 2.3.10 to your computer (Windows and Mac available).

Insert the Stinger Thumb Drive into your computer and open the Stinger Desktop Application. Click on "Check for VIP Updates". Once downloaded, eject the drive and insert the Stinger drive into your VIP and follow the prompts on the Display once booted up.

VIP 4.0 software is a major new release, bringing several improvements to your Stinger. At the center of VIP 4.0 lies a completely redesigned 'filtering engine' with better false suppression and signal discrimination. The end result is a combination of improved alerting performance and quieter rides. Although the new filtering engine is certainly the primary advancement, this update will bring many other enhancements to your VIP as well, touching areas such as FalseListing, SpotListing, Section Control (Specs), Radar Alerting, Laser Alerting, SafetySignals, MileageLogging, and the User Interface and Settings. Also, with the groundwork laid in this software, we expect further fine-tuning and more features in upcoming versions. For now, we hope you will enjoy this new update for your VIP!

Version 4.0.26 UK.*

The new update release notes:

FalseListing
  • Capability of Auto FalseList to remember locations more quickly.
  • More accurate suppression of FalseListed locations.
SpotList and Section Control
  • Alerts for red light camera locations when you are driving below your SpeedSense limit, can be switched on or off in the settings.
  • Automatic selection of the current speed limit (depending on the time of day), when alerting for section controls with variable limits. [Requires the new SpotList files, available from January 2017.]
  • More accurate alerting for, and monitoring of, Section Control areas.
  • Better suppression of false alerts within Section Control areas.
Radar Alerting
  • Improved K and Ka-band sensitivity.
  • More accurate K and Ka-band discrimination and filtering.
  • More accurate band settings for certain regions.
  • Improved signal strength indication and alert ramp-up.

  • More detailed logging of speed trap events.
  • Several code improvements and bug fixes.

I'll pass your thanks along to the engineers and the coders. They and the beta testers, like Mirage, have done all the hard work.
