After having completed an install with a Genevo Pro II NZ today and uploading the latest firmware to the device, I had noticed that the radar showed a couple of new options not available before, these were all toggle options in the band settings of the Genevo detector:
- RadFlex (BETA) (I presume spelt wrong and meant to be RedFlex)
I have no idea what Vizir is and don't have any experience with Phodar, so I did not adjust either of these settings with respect to the detector itself, however RedFlex has been the bain of NZ with mobile speed camera vans for a while now. Hopefully Genevo have been able to crack the code, because that instantly puts other manufacturers on notice.
I haven't had the opportunity to test it out yet, the client is due to head away over the weekend so we've returned it to him to use in the meantime and we'll get some better data when I find a RedFlex van next.
Interestingly on the RedFlex toggle front, as it was a standalone option on it's own, it did not require K band to be turned on, nor K filtering. In fact in testing of the toggle while I could, it would not matter if I had K band on or not, the toggle worked fine either way, meaning that either Genevo has some sort of processing happening here that's able to single out RedFlex K band over the rest or we might have a case on our hands where it might be a little too good to be true. Irrespective it looks good going in so I have hope it works, it's really just down to whether it's effective or not. I understand many can pick up on RedFlex signals, but I don't know of any that have been able to defeat it.
