Or the cops which sit on 90 in a passing lane and then none of the sheep behind are keen to pass.

Was heading down the kaimais only to reach a cop, he was going pretty slow following a truck doing about 50-60kph. He also turned on his radar to get my speed as I was behind him. He did pull into the slow vehicle bay to let me past, not sure how many other vehicles overtook him :p

Being of a certain age I'm often awake at 1.00 - 4.00AM. But driving is the last thing I want to do, more sleep would be nice.

He never thought to stop the truck and ask why he didn't use the passing bays did he?

@LouG what are the chances of you resubmitting that FYI Request we are all so very thankful for again?

Reason being, I got targeted by a Stalker RLR which wasn't on that sheet document they gave to you.

I have video footage of this.

Only asking because you seem to know the process quite well..

I'd like to, but I think it might start to look vexatious. The process is simple, go to

Make and browse Official Information requests

I'd quote the current models as on the attached sheet, and ask if there are any new systems in use, specifically Stalker RLR among others.

How did you identify it? Via your detector? It could possibly be wrong.

Hello from the Great White North (Canada). I'm going to be renting a car and driving quite a bit on both the North and South islands. I'll be running Waze and TagACam so I'm not worried about fixed cameras, but are there any particular areas with live traps I need to watch out for?
I'd appreciate any advice you guys can offer. Thanks.

Waze isn’t really used a lot here, I actually found the iRadar app from cobra better for cameras. Unsure about TagACam never used it here.

Live traps not really- laser is becoming more common on the Auckland motorways so beware.

Otherwise usual stuff, watch our for I/O use a rabbit, bring your RD ;)

If you need help with anything else non-CM related feel free to PM me.

Watch for grey VW and Hyundai vans parked on the side of the road. They really stand out on rural highways. Redflex pole mounts are white with two boxes on outriggers.
But mobile Stalkers are the biggest threat, you can find them even on backroads at times. But they're not as common as they used to be, except around Wellington. Our new Holden patrol cars are hard to spot with very low profile light bars. If in doubt, throw the anchor out.
You'll also see that our environment mostly isn't conducive to long detections, react to every Ka beep until you're sure.

Down south they are running two patrol cars about 1km apart. I saw them give somebody a ticket within 200m of a speed sign, I thought they didn't do that. Also they put those Hyundai about 1km past a Redflex, well off the highway where they can get a clear shot so beware!

Yep, see this often down here. If you see a marked car, keep your eyes open for a mufti down the road a bit!

That's in breach of guidelines. They did it here on Lower Queen St, I complained to the Area Commander and haven't seen it done since.

Good save from the RD a while back here - red highway patrol sitting fully out of view. Few oncoming cars flashed their lights too.

Finally had some motivation and time to install the hardwire for the radar, was already ripping the car apart for reversing camera and full audio rewire with amps/subs etc. Only thing is, will the blue tint affect the radar at all? If so i'll have to drop it down a bit I guess.

Nice install man.

The blue tint is fine. The only tiny that will affect performance is metallic tint.

Ahh yes, I recognize that spot.
You’re right, they do tuck themselves in there quite nicely ready to pounce.
Thankfully the Redline gave me plenty of warning.

Managed to modify the cheap Chinese RD to give me 100m warning of Redflex and in doing this killed most the false alerts. Now playing with it to increase Stalker range without killing the Redflex detection. Also have to think now about the warning, don't need any of the voice or display circuitry now, any way now not compatible. Bluetooth for my Sena but what alert? I can electronically distinguish between Stalker and Redflex but in the car or MC I don't want it to be annoying but pleasant, any ideas?

I use the Porky clip for Ka on JBV1, but I wouldn't say the squealing is pleasant. What about a sexy womans voice saying "slow down baby, we've got all day"?
