Apparently DEC has more deadlier ECCM algo than DET.
If would be such a news to have DEC confirmed in AB.
Thats why Im asking.

No not really, they already have contracts with Dragoneye, it would be super easy for them to buy a DETC. Still gonna need 3 ALP heads...even if they aren't using one in Alberta.

Yeah they're the same threat either way.
I think the only difference with the Compact is its automatically in ECCM mode as default.

DETC has both certified and ECCM. If it's in certified your ALP'S will identify it as a Laser Ally

Laser Ally is older firmware Digital Ally (DALA) branded guns before they were the newer DragonEye Speed Laser or Compact (DESL or DETC)

I know but are they not all 185 pps in certified mode still? all compacts I've seen you have to go into the menu and activate ECCM.. For example, the LEO that shoots in my neighbourhood usea a DragonEye - some times it identifies it as a DALA, sometimes as a DragonEye (has been DragonEye for months now) but it's the identical gun. Maybe a firmware update? idk

ECCM is enabled by default when you power up the lidar gun, when the gun is not in ECCM it is 185 pps. Older guns will alert "Laser Ally", newer guns "Dragoneye". In Edmonton, they alert "Dragoneye".

If in a vehicle (and pointed out a window), then yes. EPS (Edmonton Police 'Service') generally use other LIDAR guns for their overpass traps (which require chase cars down the road), although they now appear to borrow the Dragoneye guns from time to time for gits and shiggles.

Several detectors will detect them, but all they do is notify you that you're getting a ticket. You need ALP laser jammers, I'm afraid. You also have to decide which end you want to protect against Dragoneye, as you generally need 3 heads to consistently jam these guns (ALP only currently allows 5 heads in total, although they're supposed to be developing a work-around). I protect the front with 3 heads, since an in-person ticket means points on my license, while some prefer to cover the back end against overpass shots and the like.

While I always agrees the front protection was more important, now a rear EPS hit will be a ticket and demerits as well lol

I d always take DET up front than in the rear. Frontal shots r gonna be always more further down the road and almost centered while rear the opposite.
I had luck to survive my first and only DESL shot from AB Sheriff on Highway 16 near Edson. Aprox. 300-400m (600-900ft) away. Little bit on the right. On a service road.

I d always recommend 2F/3R in Edmonton since 3F/3R is not an option yet with 1 system only.

Can anyone running the MRCD capable Redline international comment on what the driving experience is like? With no GPS lock-out it sounds like the Redline is going to generate an absurd amount of false alerts. Having run a V1 for a long time in Edmonton the false alerts virtually defeated it's purpose. Thanks in advance!

In the city limits of Edmonton it's more quiet than the V1 because you can disable K band and enable MRCD. No need for GPS lockouts, EPS run Ka 34.7.

Agree 100%. Enabling/disabling K on the ProA can be done by feel. In the city you get maybe 2 or 3 MRCD falses a day (easy to tell the difference because falses last 2 seconds and real MRCD lasts at least 10 seconds), otherwise it's silent except for real Ka and MRCD.
