The Genevo MAX NZ

Genevo have been leading the way in Europe designing and producing radar detectors for over a decade.  Since 2018, their tech team have been working with us to help produce the most advanced portable radar detector on the New Zealand market.

  • Motion sense control
  • Small, compact size
  • The most up to date, accurate GPS database
  • Dual mounting options – horizontal or vertical


GENEVO MAX NZ comes loaded with the largest 360° radar antenna among our portable radar detectors, a completely redesigned laser sensor with military-grade collimator technology and a latest, 5th generation GPS antenna with a New Zealand speed camera database. No surprises waiting for you around the corner!


Cutting edge tech and world-firsts such as gesture control, light sensor or a vehicle noise sensor.


Radar detectors are totally legal in New Zealand, but the MAX NZ does not actively affect the work of the police in any way and is approved and legal for use in many European countries. Thanks to its complete invisibility against latest police RDD’s like Australian police use, and its compact size it doesn’t attract unwanted attention.


With GENEVO MAX NZ, you will be protected from all police radars used in NZ along with some extra tech like the usually undetectable modern GATSO RT3 / RT4 Radars and MultaRadars.  The latter are commonly used Europe which means it’s future-proofed for use here in New Zealand. The detection of static speed cameras goes without saying. As a bonus, GPS database updates are free!


Thanks to its attractive looks it will fit in any interior. the MAX NZ magnetic holder ensures that it can be easily mounted, both vertically and horizontally. Multi-colour OLED display, with automatic brightness adjustment, and an integrated headphone input.

  • What radar frequency do cops use in NZ?

    Police Radar Frequency in NZ

    Ka radar, used in police patrol cars, operates on 34.7Ghz.  If you can isolate this frequency and switch off everything else, you’ll virtually eliminate any chance of false alerts.

    K band used in camera vans operates on 24.1 Ghz from a low-power radar transmitter.  This means that camera vans are very hard to detect reliably.

    The difference between K and Ka band is quite simple – read more about police radar frequencies in NZ here.

    It’s also worth the reminder that not all police cars have radar installed, normally just highway patrol cars.  They also don’t always have their radar turned on.  This is why your detector may not give you a lot of warning, it will suddenly blast a full-strength warning because the police just flicked their radar on the last second.  It’s tough to beat that sort of “hunting”.

  • Are Radar Detectors Illegal in New Zealand?

    There has long been talk of banning radar detectors, however this rumour has been circulating for nearly 20 years and there’s no evidence to suggest any New Zealand government will actually take action on the matter.

    Radar detectors are NOT illegal in New Zealand.

    There are a number of reasons why radar detectoes aren’t illegal here, as discussed here – read more.

  • Do NZ Police user radar or laser?

    The answer is BOTH. New Zealand Police use both radar and laser to detect speeding vehicles.

    Radar is more common though, with radar installed in police patrol cars, motorbikes, and fixed and mobile speed cameras.

    Laser is more accurate, but it can only be used by officers who are trained in its use and is used from a stationary, parked vehicle.  That said, laser can usually be transferred between police vehicles faster and easier, making it more financially effeciant for New Zealand police.
