hmm, would you mind posting this in this thread?From my daily experience in Baltimore and the surrounding counties, most of the local road based photo speed cameras are MRCD/CT and low power K. Low power K are the older ones and it seems like as they upgrade they are moving to the MRCD/CT platform. Same goes for the red light cameras. The older or existing red light cameras are a mix and most of the new ones are MRCD/CT. While I have heard of some permanent Poliscan locations I have not seen any yet, at least that I noticed. The only Poliscan or laser I know of are the mobile units on the highway in construction zones.
Before I started using my R7 I ran with a V1. You need to put it in Euro mode for it to scan low enough to pick up these MRCD/CT and low K cameras. Range is not good under any condition. When there are other cars ahead of you in range of the camera you get the best warning range but conversely if the road is empty you can get very little range. So far my R7 has shown the best range between the two and also the most solid lock on the signal.
So where all are the MRCD and MRCT in use so far? As far as I'm aware, here's the current list: MRCD: Alberta, NYC, Maryland, & Washington D.C. MRCT: Chicago Is that about right? In Alberta, is it primarily Edmonton and Calgary or do other towns have them too? What about Texas? I've heard...
Could you also share some photos of the MRCD/CT radar guns and some dashcam footage if you have any? When I tested the V1 in Edmonton against MRCD, it didn't do very well there either. It did better with TMF2 off, but then the K band falses were bananas. Do you happen to have any other detectors that have MRCD-specific support? I didn't know the MRCD was in use in MD yet, but that's very good info!
