A new radar detector has just launched. This is a completely new line of radar detectors. The Radenso Pro is the first unit to be introduced. It is a high performing GPS windshield mounted radar detector which has been tested over and over against all leading brands like the Escort Redline, Escort Max, Valentine V1 and others and has come out quite well.
The windshield mounted unit is extremely small in comparison to other high performing detectors and is equipped with GPS and RLC data base. There is no subscription required for the RLC database. All database and firmware updates are free of charge and can be uploaded from home from a PC or laptop. No time consuming costly updating at the manufacturers facility required.
The Radenso product line has been established a few years ago in Europe and has become the leading brand in Europe, sold overthere under Genevo brand name.
In addition to the windshield mounted unit there will be a remote installed unit coming soon. A sample is going out for FCC certification this week. We expect the remote unit to launch sometime in November or December. The remote unit will outperform EVERY other remote installed radar detector including the STI-R+ and the 9500CI, possibly even the Stinger VIP at a cost of an Escort Max. More units are under development. It will get interesting....

looks kinda like a cheap radar detector similar to a cobraNice things can come in small packages & this looks to be one of them. I've been aware of the Genovo (G1) since back in 2013 & been curious about it since watching YouTube videos from Germany w/ it mounted vertically on W/S running against the Multanova 6F & doing a pretty good job.

Very surprised to see it re-branded as "Radenso" as the OP mentions & to be offered here in the U.S. now.

I have a couple of questions for the OP:
1. In videos it appears to only display a "ballpark" Center frequency of radar bands, why not a direct readout of actual frequency ?
2. Is it RDD immune ?
3. Does it have an FM Discriminator circuit & can it detect Gatso RT3 radar ?
4. Can it detect MRCD & MRCT radars ?

Thanks for your questions. I have been offering the Genevo product line for almost 3 years in my European webshop. When it launched a couple of years ago it was a mediocre radar detector at best. Products like V1 or Escort 9500ix, Escort Max and nowadays Escort Redline ruled the european market for quite a while. These days it is reversed, while there are still a lot of V1s and Escort being sold Genevo has overtaken them and is the detector of choice for most vendors.
I saw the performance get better and better and finally thought it would be a great compliment to the US market as well. It is well equipped, has great detection range and reasonably priced.

Now to your questions:
1. We currently display the nominal frequency, not the actual one. There reading of the actual frequency was off a bit and we are going to address this with one of the next firmware updates.
I personally prefer the actual frequency display myself as a tool to distinguish "likely threats" from bogus threats.
2. The Radenso Pro is NOT RDD undetectable. Engineering is working on a undetectable unit but I don't know how far this has progressed
3. I do not know if detects the Gatso RT3 but doesn't the RT3 operate on K band? I will let you know shortly
4. No, the current Radenso Pro does not detect the Multaradar CD but I know that Genevo is diligently working on a firmware solution for Europe since this becomes more and more of a threat and seem to replace the good old Multanova 6F. I do not really see this to be an issue in the US

I sent your questions to my colleagues nevertheless and will post the answer shortly

I really do appreciate you being forthright in answering straight-up w/o the sales b.s. so many cannot put aside. That's a very interesting history of the G1 & your long time involvement bodes well for the RD's refinement going forward.

I 100% agree w/ your assessment regarding actual frequency versus nominal frequency displayed.

As regarding your questions 3 & 4 replies-
If you wish to dethrone the Big Boys of the RD market here in the U.S., the opportunity presents itself before you & your Engineers in this realm (MODE used) of the EMF spectrum. The only MFG to my knowledge able to defeat the MRCD/MRCT is Stinger from the Netherlands. The REDLINE Int'l PRO had potential but I believe it is a fail,AFAIK.
The Gatso RT3 does indeed operate in the 24GHz K-band but is currently un-defeatable at present. Their North American HQ is located near me & they are selling this model here in the U.S. Actually, they are presently installing 26 Gatso in Albany,NY & have a contract for 52 total I believe. Once the revenue starts pouring into State coffers this will likely attract much more interest from many more Municipalities I suspect.

Are you up for the challenge ?


p.s.- Defeat the Gatso & the Australian market is yours to own !

Thanks for your input.
As promised I forwarded your questions to my colleagues in Europe regarding RDD immunity, Gatso RT3 and MRCD. Here the unfiltered answers

1. Not, but we are working on RDD imune remote unit.
2. Detection of Gatso RT3 is in progress but current units will not be able to detect it. Hardware change needed.
3. Detection of MRCD & MRCT is in progress but current units will not be able to detect it. Hardware change needed.
2 and 3 is one of the main reasons why changes to Radenso Pro are a bit slower right now.


So the good news: A RDD immune Remote unit is in development and will come. Makes sense to start with the remote unit I guess since a hidden installation should also be hidden to RDDs.
Bad news: Gatso and MRCD are not detected at this time. Big issue for Europe as there are more and more of them coming. FW updates alone do not appaear to address the problem properly and hardware changes are needed. It will come, they are working on it

Congratulations on the successful launch of your new product here in the U.S. Hugel66!

In the tests I've seen so far, the new Radenso Pro appears to be a serious contender in the high end detector market. Competing very favorably against the Valentine, Escort MAX and even giving the Escort RedLine a run for the money!

Love the size and the display and this is one product where smaller is better.;) It's also refreshing to see a new manufacturer jump right in and fully engage the community here and on other forums where customers can ask questions, get honest answers and make recommendations. It's a fantastic approach and a great start and we're excited to see you here.

2. Is it RDD immune ? NO, so VA is out of question
3. Does it have an FM Discriminator circuit & can it detect Gatso RT3 radar ? Doesnt matter in the USA (haven't seen a single location in USA (yet) with Gatso and NY/Mass doesnt have any
4. Can it detect MRCD & MRCT radars ? Doesnt matter in the USA

4. True that, for the time being.(However, you missed the point I made, an RD that can detect the MRCD/MRCT for less than half the price of Stinger in Australia...& even in the EU for that matter will dominate, they'd be flying off the shelves.);)

The Engineers of Genevo are intensively working on the MRCD and MRCT detection for their European product line since those radars are replacing the 34.3 Ghz Multanova 6F.
A radar detector that cannot detect those new radars will soon be worthless in some countries of Europe. It will require some hardware updates but will be implemented soon in Europe. For USA and Canada I currently do not see the need but we all know that this can change relatively quickly.

Has the original Radenso pro se been bought out by another company?
