Thank you for purchasing the RAD-1. This precision digital audio inclinometer
is factory-calibrated to read 0 degrees in both X and Y axis when set in a level
position. To install in vehicle, first make sure vehicle is level to within 1 degree
in both axis, use a bubble level or equivalent if necessary. Attach RAD-1 unit to
dash or windshield mount, turn on unit and adjust position until both X and Y
axis read 0 degrees. Make sure the unit is tightly secured. The RAD—1 will
now accurately display your vehicles angle in both axis from 0 to 60 degrees.

The RAD-1 will also provide an audio alert warning you when approaching a
maximum angle that you have chosen and programmed into the unit’s
memory. The unit is designed to begin a beep sequence 14 degrees prior to
reaching your maximum preset angle. This will provide advance warning when
approaching your vehicle’s maximum sustainable angle, thus allowing time for
corrective action.

The RAD-1 will also store the maximum angle experienced by the vehicle.
Decimal points in the angle values indicate a negative angle relative to the
driver’s position. The RAD-1 is designed for speeds below 5 MPH, and the
speeds in excess of 5MPH will skew the unit’s internal sensors used to
calculate angle of inclination.


By using this product, you agree that you alone are responsible for your

vehicle‘s performance, and you indemnify Innovate for any damages.

Other Notes:

Your vehicle’s center of gravity depends on many factors, including weight,
ride height, wheelbase and axel width. Generally speaking, a higher vehicle
with narrow axel width and short wheelbase will tip over at a lower angle than a
vehicle that is lower to the ground with wider axels. Adding weight to the upper
portion of your vehicle will also change its center of gravity. The RAD-1 is
designed to aid in your understanding of the characteristics of your vehicle.

Always use caution when operating off road and never exceed the limits of
your vehicle.
