Q. What if no speed is displayed?

  1. Check battery(s) with a voltage meter to be sure they are outputting at least 12 volts.
  2. Check battery charger indicator lights. Be sure there is power to the charger from your outlet and power out from the charger measures higher than 12 volts.
  3. Check your “Set Time” feature and be sure your clock is set properly to display at the correct times. If in doubt, disable the set time feature.

Q. What if a “NR” is displayed:
Please note the radar can be accessed via a panel on the back side of the LED display. Use the “L” key to remove the tamper resistant screws and slide the cover over.

  1. Check the radar gun connector to be sure of a good connection.
  2. Check the indicator light on the back of the radar unit:
  • A solid red LED indicates a vehicle traveling away from the unit is being measured.
  • A solid Green LED indicates a vehicle traveling towards the unit is being measured.
  • A flashing red LED indicates power but no target is being acquired.

Q. If display is not showing the proper oncoming vehicles –

Please see your manual, Section 7.
