Start-up Sequence
(using factory default settings)
Your K40 RL360 /RL200 system will be ready for use following this
automatic start-up sequence:
1. Start your vehicle – The K40 is designed to turn on automatically every time your vehicle is started.
2. Listen for Test Scan – Both front and rear alert lights in your
dash will flash (K40 RL200 models have one alert light). The voice
will announce “K40 Scan, Active” then you will hear alerts for
all bands.
NOTE: If you don’t hear the test scan, press and release Power
button on the remote.
3. GPS Connection – After locating available satellites, the unit will
announce “GPS Connected”.
NOTE: If you are in a location that prevents connection with GPS
(e.g. parking garage) your radar system will still protect you from all
threats. Once you drive to an unobstructed location, the GPS will
connect and you will hear “GPS Connected”.
4. You’re ready to drive without limits!

Receiving Alerts
The K40 RL360 /RL200 provides a combination of audio and visual
alerts to warn you when radar is detected.
Radar Alert Sequence
Your K40 RL360/RL200 detects all industry standard police radar
bands. When a signal is detected:
•
A voice alerts which band was identified. (This assumes the factory
default “Voice ON” setting has not been changed.)
•
The K40 RL360 will announce the direction of the signal’s source,
either front or rear, along with the band detected. K40 RL200 systems will announce the band detected.
•
A series of tones will be heard indicating the strength of the signal.
Each band has its own distinctive tone. (Volume reduces 50%
automatically after 5 seconds.)
Laser Alert Sequence
(only for RL360’s/RL200’s that include the optional EX or EX2 Defuser System)
When the RL360/RL200 detects a laser signal:
•
A voice announces “Laser.” (This assumes the factory default
“Voice ON” setting has not been changed.)
•
You then hear a distinct and urgent audio tone. (Volume reduces
50% automatically after 5 seconds.)
•
LEDs will pulse rapidly.
Alert Volume Reduction
All audio alerts will automatically be reduced in volume by 50%
after 5 seconds. After 60 seconds, all audio alerts will automatically
become silent. To learn how to MUTE alerts using your remote
control, see page 8.

Alerts from non-police signals
Your RL360/RL200 is sensitive enough to detect signals generated
by non-police equipment, such as bank security systems. To learn
how to minimize these signals, please read about FILTER options
(below) and the Quiet RideTM function (page 6-7).
Special Features/Functions

3. Filter

Quiet RideTM
The K40 RL360/RL200’s exclusive Quiet RideTM function will automatically silence all radar and laser alerts when traveling under a
speed of your choice between 20 and 65 MPH in 5 MPH increments.
The factory default setting for Quiet RideTM is “On” and your system
is preset to 25 MPH.
6
To change the speed at which alerts are silenced (Quiet RideTM must
be “on” to change setting):
• Press
and hold VOLUME UP button for 3 seconds to enter the
Menu settings.
•
Press and release VOLUME UP button to scroll to the Quiet
RideTM setting.
•
Press and hold VOLUME DOWN button for 3 seconds to enter
the speed setting Menu.
• Press
and release VOLUME DOWN button to change the desired
maximum Quiet RideTM speed. A voice announces speed settings in
increments of 5 mph with each press and release of the button.
Stop when you hear your desired Quiet RideTM speed. The K40
RL360/RL200 automatically saves your settings after 10 seconds
and exits the Menu function.
NOTE: Locations that you have “Marked for Alert” are not affected
by the Quiet RideTM function and will initiate alerts at any time.
Mark Location
The “Mark” function allows you to add specific GPS locations to
your personal database, alerting you to any point of interest you
choose (e.g. dangerous intersections and school zones). To activate
this feature:
•
Press and release MARK button when you are at the location.
•
A voice announces “Marked to Alert”.
In the future, you will be alerted as follows:
When you arrive…
You will hear a…
…within a radius of 1500 feet
of the marked location
..."Bing Bong" tone and the alert
light(s) will flash twice
...at a marked location
...single “Bing” tone and the alert
light will flash once
7
To remove a previously marked location: Press and release
MARK button while in that location.
To remove all currently stored locations: Press and hold MARK
button for 5 seconds at any time.
Mute Functions
Using the MUTE button you can mute voice/tone audio alerts for
15 seconds or an extended mute of 2 minutes (or more depending
on the duration of the initial alert).
• Press
and release MUTE button for 15 second mute (or duration
of initial alert).
•
Press and hold MUTE button for extended mute (minimum 2
minutes or duration of alert).
To turn the voice/tone audio alerts off, use the VOLUME
DOWN button until voice confirms “Audio Off”.
In both Mute settings and Volume Off settings, you will continue to
receive flashing visual alerts.
Speed Monitor
The Speed Monitor function alerts the driver when a pre-selected
speed is exceeded. The Speed Monitor can be set to any speed
between 40-100 MPH in 5 MPH increments.
When the preset speed is exceeded:
•
The K40 RL360/RL200 will emit a continuous tone and LED(s) will
remain lit.
•
The alerts will continue until the vehicle’s speed is reduced to
below the Speed Monitor setting.
The factory default setting for Speed Monitor is “Off.” To access
and turn on this function:
•
8
Press and hold CITY/HWY button for 3 seconds.
•
Then press and release VOLUME UP button to select the desired maximum speed for alerts. Stop pressing after you hear your
desired speed announced.
•
5 seconds after your speed is selected, your setting will be saved
and a voice will announce “Exit”.
