That is cool, so is the DFR7 you are using a US bought model?Just found a redflex on the way to work this morning and managed to do a quick bit of testing.
Still running the DFR7 R3 Combo. Vertical mount DFR7 gave good range against redflex and alerted before corner, so no way I would have know it was there without warning. Alert came it at 24.06. Didn’t have the frame of mind to rerun with the R3 on K band and DFR7 turned off. However, it is the same Van I have seem many times before and which has given no alert on the R3 previously.
Running the combo, the R3 has also given a couple of alerts on Ka band over the last few days so I’m relatively happy that is also working correctly.
To be honest, I don’t especially like the combo as it takes up a lot of space on the windscreen. I am also getting a lot of false alerts on K band (I’ve not yet been adding gps lock-outs). However, it is setting a good benchmark from which to compare the DFR9 in the next few days. Based upon these tests, I expect now that the DFR9 should also have redflex capability. The DFR9 is also a better package then the DFR7 and with a screen which is easier to read. If the DFR9 turns out to be comparable in performance to the combo, I would in hindsight have opted for a DFR9 in place of an R3. It’s also a lot cheaper.
