Hi all,

On the follow up to the Genevo Pro, which was received very well here in New Zealand and has shown to be a great performer, Genevo have continued to see the gap in the market for RedFlex detection and have followed up from the Genevo Pro with the new Genevo Pro II.

In NZ, we will likely see them with NZ based firmwares, hence why units of the Pro were shipped as 'Genevo Pro NZ' and not just 'Genevo Pro' like the European counterparts. The latest model, the Pro II NZ is touted to have a few new features such as:
- New OLED colour display
- Auto volume (changes based on in cabin volumes)
- Touch free motion sense control (like that seen on the Genevo MAX, wave to mute, etc)

But most interestingly the key feature I took from this is the new digital 'high definition' antenna that's designed specifically to detect low powered RedFlex K band. This is huge for NZ based customers, as all of our mobile speed camera operations are utilising the RedFlex camera system as well as sizeable chunk of our fixed speed cameras as well. The fixed speed cameras will be less of an issue as the Pro II NZ will ship with a GPS database with all of these locations set and does include a database of red light cameras as well.

In the past for us to get good K band detection, it's usually come from the Stinger VIP, however with the barrier to entry being the outlay in cost for the detector itself, this could definitely breach into the market and provide us kiwi's with a detector that may very well have the mobile speed camera protection that we've been sorely looking out for. It may not necessarily be a game changer for every application around the world, but over here as well as in Australia, RedFlex has become the upper hand that local enforcement agencies have had for a while now, this may very well shake that up a wee bit. Until I get some hands on time with it I can't make a guarantee on it's performance, but it looks promising!

Technical specifications:
GPS: SiRF STAR IV
Ka narrow: 34.0 GHz, 34.3 GHz, 34.7 GHz, 35.5 GHz (±120 MHz)

Thanks for sharing this with us, it will be interesting to see some real world results and the improvement compared to the old one.
Is this already available on NZ ? Any estimation about the release date ?

It's available now, along with a revised Genevo MAX with a similar antenna setup for RedFlex detection

Cool! Thanks for the info. :)

I wonder if we'll be able to get this updated display for the Radenso RC M and have it be an easy swap-in replacement.

From the looks of things, it still has the micro USB port for the display, however my only question would be if the control unit has the ability to change what it was previously displaying to OLED colour?
