I currently have a V1 running with JBV! near Dallas TX. I just learned about MRCD and was wondering if its a threat near me right now? Also how does the Radendo Pro M compare to the V1?

None.

DFW is tricky because we have around a 100 differing jurisdictions but pro m is considered best bsm filtering (important in urban cycles) and no arrows. I had a V1 for like two decades, I liked the arrows.

Don’t forget many of the suburbs use laser a lot and neither will help you with that.

They have one in Sugar Land but it's just for traffic data collection. They don't cite from it.
Interesting. Do you recall the location? I'll look it up on google street view and make a note to visit it next time I'm in Houston.

cihkal just advised me that the one I saw was an MRCT unit, and I reviewed my footage and that intersection has a red light camera warning sign, so trying to work out if the MRCT radar is part of the RLC detection, or it also pops you for a Speed on Green offence. One thing about my video is the NetRadar DSP didn't pick up the forward-facing threat until I was right next to the device. Good thing is that Waze and GPS detectors should provide plenty of notice as a RLC. Plus there's the warning sign LOL.

Yeah the platform the DSP and R use seems to struggle with picking up the cameras before you're right on top of them when they're forward facing. I think it's a filtering related thing because the DSP and R do not false to any vehicles for MRCT whereas the Pro M does at times, but not much anymore.

Reason I say this is the R seems to pick up the signal about where the M does in forward facing scenarios based on the heartbeat change. It gets really slow the entire time to the camera and then eventually alerts. I see the same behavior when the R is filtering a vehicle that the M would MRCT false to. Rear facing the R does a lot better, much closer to the M's performance.

Just some random context for ya

I routinely blow by that thing full bars at 20 over PSL, like this morning for example. I do keep an eye on the bogey counter even though there isn't really anywhere for the local LEOs to hide.

There's a RLC Photo Enforced sign 325 feet before the device. Obviously not a speed on green device if you're +20 through there. You'd better stop for the red light though! LOL.

Yep, they've had these RLCs for years. Running red lights isn't as fun as speeding so I never have an issue with them.

Just to be clear, MRCD is in Texas but it’s not for speed cams (which are illegal) they are only RLC right?

There’s a couple in Elgin (it’s like 2 rlc in the middle of nowhere) and I think I saw some in Grand Prarie

In texas I think all RLC have to be marked.

RLC's are up to the municipality to implement or not. MRCD is just for data collection. They can't cite from it in the state. In fact even RLCs are non-moving violations in Texas. Pay to play fine.

I personally find running red lights to be of zero entertainment value so I don't do it. Threshold braking however is fun, so I tend to stop on yellow unless someones behind me.

So they are RLC that also collect speed data? Or are there standalone units for data collection
It's a separate device. Like the one in Sugar Land is the light before the RLC light. I'm unclear what demands an RLC or an MRCD but they don't have to be installed together.
