Congratulations on the purchase of your Bushnell® Velocity. The Velocity is a precision speed radar instrument designed to provide many years of enjoyment. These instructions will help you achieve optimum performance by explaining the adjustments and features as well as how to care for this precise speed measuring instrument. To ensure optimal performance and longevity, please read these instructions before using your Bushnell Velocity.


Your Bushnell Velocity uses digital technology to provide instantaneous speed measurements to +/- One-Mileper Hour (MPH) accuracy. The Bushnell Velocity is a simple, point and shoot radar gun for all kinds of sports enthusiasts. The Bushnell Velocity measures the speed of a baseball at10-110MPH from 90 feet away from the ball, and the speed of a racecar from10-200MPH at 1,500 feet away.


Your Bushnell Velocity operates on two C alkaline batteries. To install, remove the battery cover by rotating the battery cap counterclockwise. Insert both batteries positive end first and replace cap by depressing and rotating clockwise.


1.Turn the Velocity “ON” by pressing the button underneath the LCD display.

2.Aim the Velocity at the target and depress the TRIGGER. As a quick reference to accuracy, remember to keep your targets direction of travel in a direct line with you and not perpendicular to you.

3.Turn the Velocity “OFF” by pressing the button underneath the LCD Display for 3 seconds or until display shuts off.

NOTE: The Velocity contains an automatic battery savingshut-offfeature. After 10 minutes ofnon-use,the Bushnell Velocity will automatically shut off.

If a battery symbol appears on the lower right hand corner of the display, the battery voltage is beginning to deteriorate meaning new batteries should be inserted. Remove batteries if storing long-term.


A target can be anything that is moving faster than 10 M.P.H. To acquire the speed of a target, with the Velocity powered on, aim the Velocity at the target and depress the TRIGGER. An icon will appear in the upper right corner of the LCD display. This indicates the Doppler Radar is functioning. The radar will continue to be active searching for speed until the trigger is released. Upon release of the trigger, the fastest speed captured within that series will automatically be displayed. The speed of the target will appear on the LCD display in MPH.

There are certain mathematical properties of Doppler Radar that affect the accuracy of your Bushnell Velocity. Please read COSINE AFFECT ON TARGET VELOCITY below. As a quick reference to accuracy, remember to keep your targets direction of travel in a direct line with you, and not perpendicular.


The Velocity will measure the relative speed of a target as it approaches the Velocity. If the target is in a direct line (collision course) with the Velocity the measured speed will be exact. As the angle of incidence increases, if you move either right or left of this direct line, the accuracy will decrease. The measured speed will decrease as you move off this centerline. This phenomenon is called the Cosine Effect. It is called this because the measured speed is directly related to the cosine of the angle between the Velocity and the target’s direction of travel.
