On a brighter note....who is buying an R7 :D
I've got my supplier in the US looking at getting them in, but don't have any news on a timeline yet. Usually takes about 1-2 weeks to arrive in NZ from the US.

So far looks as though its running the January 4th US R3 GPS database (which is all decoded). So waiting to get one, and get testing!

Okay, I've reviewed the new Uniden R3 NZA GPS version V1.37 (blulink)

This new Uniden GPS database doesn't add very much at all. However, a new camera position at -36.98683167,174.8813629 is good to see. Actually there are two redflex redlight cameras at this junction.
So I'll be adding these in the new build:
//BI -36.98673,174.88134,MDRL,SE
//BI -36.98699,174.88143,MDRL,NW

I've also reviewed all the yellow stickers marked in V2.08 in full. Google has done some nice updates, and it's good to see the final location and orientation of quite a few new redflex cameras.

Therefore I will make a new V2.10 update soon. This updates about 20 cameras, as opposed to V1.37 which only introduces small changes, several already applied in V2.08.

Please see also the article I found on here...

Originally I only saw the one camera on the junction, but then I read this and realised there were two. Some images from google streetview show the second one with a cone marking where it will be, and then later images show the second camera.

I haven't yet checked the other camera locations mentioned in this article, but I will check to see if more also need adding. This info however may not have come to everyone's attention.

The fact that they need two cameras facing each other at a single intersection tells me they're only monodirectional. This is consistent with my findings reviewing the ones in Au.

Please could someone clarify what actually constitutes a 'red light'? I was stung be a policeman in an unmarked car a couple of years ago, who followed me through the lights on orange. His point was that I didn't stop. My point was that doing an emergency stop would have him rear-ending me, since we was tailing my bumper.

This was on the day, I think he was pissed with me: I past him doing 135 on the motorway as without radar he couldn't calibrate my speed. Genuinely the light was Orange when I passed over the line having gone from green a short moment earlier.

So my question is... does a red light camera give you a ticket if you pass the light on orange, or just on red? Cause I'm still genuinely confused. The police confirmed an orange light got me the ticket.

You are obliged to stop for an amber light, unless it is unsafe to do so. You could defend it on the grounds you mentioned about the cop. But he'll just lie. Have you got video?
To the best of my knowledge, RLC's take two photos if a car triggers them after the light goes red. Two proves that the car is moving.
You were lucky with the speed thing too, estimating the speed of an overtaking car is very easy, and will stand up in court.

I figured you could always argue that it wouldn't be safe to stop for the fact you could be rear ended or slamming on the brakes could be considered dangerous for me or whatever/whoever inside the car.. or something along those lines anyway

Here is some Redflex speed camera testing some of you might find interesting..

Nice man, looks like the range is similar to what I think either you and Steve posted with some of the pole mounted redflex. Running K-wide is going to drive you nuts if you use it in your daily driver! Hopefully they come up with some K segments to help us out.

Wonder what frequency that is since the Uniden r3 is reporting higher than the other detectors, some are reading sub 24.050...
