The violation alert feature flashes the speed detected once the user changeable value has been met or exceeded. With this software update, we have added the ability to adjust the flash rate when the violation alert feature is active. By default, the flash rate will be 109 flashes per minute (FPM). The range that can be adjusted is 30 - 150 FPM. The higher the value, the more quickly the digits will flash.
