I'm a bit broke at the moment, otherwise I'd be interested in the R3 just to have a first-hand play with one (and for backup duties).
PM me, and we can discuss, if you want me to hang onto it for a while, happy to do so for a while.

Been busy crunching the numbers, alas I have to be responsible for a change (unplanned car repair two weeks ago didn't help any)... All yours @379 EXH. Thanks @dudeinnz really appreciate your offer though, very kind of you.

I also have a feeling I detected a mobile van alert on my R3. The van was definitely a dodgy one, and in a place I detected them many times before with my Redline. The problem is that there is also a petrol station on the opposite side of the road that also sets off K band alert. As that was some time ago, I have since turned K band off.

However, I do still miss the reassurance of getting a K band alert when I pass a redflex mounted camera. In light of what At0mic9 has said, I think I may turn K band back on. Often a dodgy van is a dead giveaway (especially when you get used to looking for them). However, when they happen to be positioned in a line of parked cars it does get tricky. My stolen redline is still missed at times, and saved many tickets from mobile vans.

Anyway, I'm hoping to have new database releases for the R3 soon (improved for both AU and NZ). I'm currently running a series of camera type and range tests, and hoping to complete the Dunedin phase of testing this week.

What ever happened to the camera vans painted in Police colours that we were told would happen 2/3 years ago?

I haven't seen many speed camera vans positioned up here in auckland which is kinda unusual given the time of year..

I was targeted three times by Leo's using Stalker LR lidar on the motorways over the weekend so for those of you up here, watch your speed / practice jtk

I get the impression they're using Lidar on motorways only now. Haven't seen one around here for 3 years.

I've been hit by Laser about 35 ish times since installing my PS.

Pretty sure the ultralyte hit was a false.. But could have been someone playing around with one (Unlikely but just as likely as the ALP falsing, which is hardly ever)

Probably had the system on the car for a year or so.

Quite interesting how quickly mt redline Pro A gives me a Laser alert when the ALP goes off.
But in some instances when the LEO is aiming well it doesnt set off the RL Pro A

My R3 picked up this Redflex mobile van the other morning, K-Band 24.065
I did a u-turn and drove past him twice and saw the camera/flash mounted in the back of the silver Hyundai van. I took the video on my phone, so not the best footage!

posted the encounter here

Gotta say a big thanks to dudeinnz for the R3.
Took a cruise with it last night to see how it matches up to the Redline.

Turned K back on, wow super chatty around town, but settles down once you get passed Papakura.
Chirped 200 metres out from Maramarua pole cam, equal to the Redline.
Sprung to life again thru Matamata, Macca’s & the Z falsing it out just like the Redline.
Kinda bummed I had no Ka hits, cops must of taken the night off.

Pretty much on par with the Redline thus far, will be keen to see how it performs when the patrol cars are sniffed out.

The cops didn't list Ultralyte as one of their devices. All the Stalker hits were visually confirmed?

Hi Lou,

Yes every single Stalker gun was confirmed.
In fact the only false I thought I got was a stalker but this was as I drop passed rapid radio who had an employee shooting stalker LIDAR our of their workshop and to my suprise I still got an alert at literally a 90 degree angle. The ALP heads are crazy sensitive.

I believe the UltraLyte was a false. Potentially a bad sensor as I never saw a gun and im pretty sure it was sitting waiting in traffic lights... Unless someone was being cheeky with a laser tester but I think this is very unlikely.

Awesome! Would be interesting how you find it compares to Redline Pro A on KA band in everyday use.

The Pleece were out and about in Tasman today. Went out for a wee ride, followed a cop for a couple of K's not using radar. We both turned off into different roads, then I got a brief 34.9 alert. I thought he'd doubled back, so I stopped to see if he'd show up, but nothing. 4 k's further on got another 34.9, nothing around. Then got an 1100 metre alert over a hill on SH60 near Harley Rd, most certainly a Revenue man in a new Commode. Saw another couple of cops, but no alerts. No idea what the 34.9 alerts were, it was in a fairly unpopulated area.
