Radar Detector Review for New Zealand Roads: Stinger VIP, Genevo Pro, K40


Josh here from JC installs. Thought would have a wee chat about the Stinger radar detector. And maybe some other radar detectors while we’re at it. We’ve set one up in my personal vehicle. Just a bit of a temporary gig in here. We’ve set it u p with a front only sensor. This is capable of running two sensors – front and rear. In fact it’s capable of running more than two. But what I thought we’d do is we go for a bit of a drive and we’d have a bit of a chat about it as we go. So on the Stinger display, because it’s got a GPS speed display, it’s telling us our speed in the top left-hand corner. At the moment it’s telling me I’m doing 47k’s an hour now my speedo tells me I’m doing 54 and it is accurate. And because it’s so accurate if a police officer pulls you over you’ve got a far more accurate reading on what you’re actually doing. Now the Stinger has just picked up a K-band. K band is mostly petrol stations, automatic doors, anything with a low intensity radar wave, picking up moving things. We generally run K band on in the Stinger because it’s a learning system and it will pick up we’re the K bands are. So you drive the same way to work every day, after a while of picking up that K band in that same location it just shuts it off. I can also touch the screen while it’s coming up with those locations to mark them and edit them out myself. But before you start doing there you’ve got to make sure you’re not actually picking up a speed camera. I enjoyed having the Stinger permanently mounted in my car because it got used to all my K band locations. But you want the K band running Stinger Radar : **RADAR K** because what it does is it picks up the mobile speed cameras. The Stinger and the Genevo Pro are the only two that are actually gonna be able to give you any real warning. So the Stinger is a what I like to call the “race car” of radar detectors. It’s got a military-grade antenna, which is the thing sitting up there on the dash, which has got unbelievable range. It is the best range on the market. Everything is compared to a Stinger because the Stinger is the best. It also comes with the “best” price tag. and that’s to be expected Now, there’s also several levels of Stingers, So it can be quite involved. So if you want the best range possible on the best budget possible then you do just a front receiver. And maybe a pair of laser receivers as well. If you were driving a super car of sorts, even just a good old bit of American muscle, or a really fast Japa, because let’s be honest we’ve got some real quick ones around the streets here, Then maybe you would put on the front radar receiver, the front laser receivers and the rear radar receiver, just to give you that extra level of protection. Because, I mean, it’s all about getting as much warning as possible. I mean not that any of us that are watching this are bad guys. The Genevo Pro is our go-to radar detector. Dollar for dollar it is damn near impossible to go past. It is substantially better than everything else we have in New Zealand except for the Stinger. Amazing range on K-A, it’s got the ability to once again get some mobile speed cameras, actually get you a little bit of range on those like the Stinger. We’re not talking miles of range but we’re able to get you some range. Both have got the ability of mark spots and cancel out K registration points throughout your drive. The Genevo has got a really usable interface and once again can also be paired with laser receivers **WINKS** This makes it a very very versatile weapon. The Genevo Pro has been specially set up for New Zealand conditions. The people from Genevo came over here and spent months testing. Which is why the unit we sell is called a Genevo Pro NZ And although there is quite a price difference between that and the Stinger, the Stinger is definitely the best weapon on the market but the Genevo – it’s pretty hot on its tail. We’ve been doing a lot of these into some fairly exotic vehicles of late. We’ve found customers are telling us how easy these are to use. So the K 40 is brilliant and cuz it hides away and it’s just got the LED and the remote control, it’s really user friendly. It’s really easy to operate, once again, you can run front sensors and rear sensors and all sorts of things. You can add your laser receivers ** ” ” ** in there. So you don’t have a mount fixed on your dash. The K 40, once again, has got excellent range. It doesn’t have the range of the Genevo but it’s still very very sensitive. It’s not gonna do the same job with the mobile speed cameras. I’ve still had a couple of people tell me that it got them a little bit ahead of time. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Look, dollar for dollar, once again, it’s a really hard one to go past. It is the cheapest of the three we’ve been discussing. So what we’ve talked about today is we talk about three excellent radar detectors that are all worth looking at if you’re looking at buying a radar detector. What it is worth doing is actually having a conversation to us about the types of road you’re driving on, where you’re going to be using it, when you’re going to be using it, why you want it, and never forget – it’s okay to tell us how much your hoping to spend. These are set price units. Installation on all of them is reasonably similar. Come in, tell us the job, and we’ll make sure that you end up with the right radar detector to suit you. And that’s what’s really important
