I am the owner of 2 twins, made at the same factory: GENEVO, NEOLINE 7500S (I think there is no reason to buy their third brother RADENSO). So a short report. What I was expecting, buying GENEVO ONE M? I assumed that with external similarity with NEOLINE this detector will detect our radars in Kazakhstan is much better than its little budget brother (GENEVO cost about 800€, the cost NEOLINE-around 90€).
This morning I was contacted by the guys from GENEVO, they said that they have added to their base stationary radars of Kazakhstan and now I can update my ONE M and start testing. I updated my detector. The first thing that surprised me: the update was specified base radar for September 8. But today is September 13. OK, I do not pay attention to it, the main purpose - testing and operation of the device.
First disappointment: this detector does not respond to our laser ROADSCAN. But the younger brother - NEOLINE detect these radars. Second disappointment: GENEVO as well as NEOLINE reacts to blind spot sensors in my land cruiser. This means I can't use this detector in my car. And now the main question: why pay more if there is a cheaper detector, which is more logical to use in Kazakhstan?
There is a good saying: "what is good for a Ukrainian, is a pig's death." If you explain: what many people like in America and Europe, does not always work well in other countries. I bought this detector for testing with a good discount and the condition that if I do not like his work, I can return it. What I was promised: will be added to the radar base of Kazakhstan. What I got in the end: some types of radar my detector does not see the radar base of our radar is not. Anyone interested, a little video report.

Almost 3 weeks of correspondence with GENEVO, gave a good result. Now the base of stationary radars of Kazakhstan in their main base. I can not say about some disadvantages when updating databases. GENEVO did before 2 attempts to add points of Kazakhstan, but it turned out to do it only for the third time. What is the inconvenience: I'm used to that each new base is a fresh base. But GENEVO had all these 3 changes with the date September 6th.
Every time I made an update, I just guessed: did they change something or not? What I like about this company: when I asked them, when buying One M, whether there is a radar base of Kazakhstan, they answered, no, only Russia. But they wanted me to test this detector on our radar, so they were kind enough to help. I didn't see this help from the Escort company. It is a pity and frustrating. Briefly about the use of the detector.
Initially I disabled only Ka-range in it. We have no radar in this range. Also a lot about interference in the MultaRadar. In General, I like the detector. It's quiet enough. In some places where my Max has false interference in the K-band, the One-M is silent. Is the price of this radar too high, unlike his younger brother NEOLINE? Now I can't say, because I just started using my one-time will tell. Part of the cost of this radar is not my Ka - band.
But I made my choice. I like the simple and convenient settings of this detector. All good.

I'm happy to hear that Genevo is willing to work with you. I usually suggest taking a look at Genevo to anyone in Europe that asks what they should get. I would not be concerned about the "date" of the firmware.

I do wonder what the "difference" would be between the Radenso-Pro M and the Genevo One M for use on (Western) European roads. I would assume that the Genevo would be better, but would the Radenso Pro-M be good enough for use during a vacation?
BTW, I am aware of the different frequencies for K narrow and Ka narrow; If I were to bring the Pro-M along on a trip I'd run it with everything "wide" so I would assume that I could get at least "fair" detection from it.

Initially, I offered to buy their RADENSO detector (it is to buy and not to ask for a test for free). Their answer is the same as that of UNIDEN and ESCORT: "we only work in the us market and do not need other markets." Their choice. I respect my opponent's choice, whatever it is. GENEVO offered me a try, of course I did not miss this opportunity.
Now the second point. From NEOLINE there are 2 similar models to GENEVO: 7500, 7500s. I checked the firmware version on GENEVO - 28. For NEOLINE 7500S(I will compare this model) last week there was 14 firmware. I have questions: either GENEVO often releases firmware or NEOLINE makes them rare. The second question is the cost. It is very different. So I want to understand the difference between detectors on our roads. Does it make sense to pay more?

And what is practical margin of usung GENEVO instead NEOLINE on the Kazakhstan roads?
What the mobile low power radars is uses in Kazakhstan and what difference in distance of detecting of it?

That IS the question. I think soon you are probably going to be the Kazakhstani counter-mesure expert, if you aren't already

That would be news to our authorized distributors in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, China, etc.....

To be clear, that is not at all what we said. We simply do not have the resources to develop custom firmware and provide a support structure for a market as small as Kazakhstan.

But I did not ask RADENSO to change something in the firmware. I agree, knowing that the market of Kazakhstan is quite small, it makes no sense to change something in the firmware RADENSO. But I just asked you to sell me this and add Kazakhstan's bases to your main bases. I don't think that's a problem for you. There's no point in discussing it now. I have GENEVO. This detector I bought cheaper than the official price. This detector has a base of Kazakhstan. This company is in dialogue. I think this is a good example for the company of the Escort, to whom I was faithful for many years. Although I say this...?
