These units are made for Europe mainly because we don't have huge distances to cover. They usually put them at the entrance of a village or at various difficult places around towns and cities but they are also used as mobile units (onboard or tripods). In the US the distances that an LEO covers are huge and these tactics are not adequate. So the more powerful units are prefered and MR/Gatso units are rare. If we consider the cost that's huge, the habits all LEOs have and the effort to keep US-based companies as providers of equipment, we can understand why there is a lack of this equipment.Question, what is keeping police from using something like mrcd in place of traditional radar guns? Does the weaker signal of mrcd also equate to limited speed detection range?
It's something that should be fixed ASAP. If it leaks in the LEO community it will be the new tactic used to catch RD users.I've also requested they give Multaradar alerts priority over speed camera and redlight camera alerts. Right now (and I'm pretty sure its the same with the R3) if you are getting a speed or red light camera alert it will not alert you to MRCD until the speed or red light camera alert is done. This can create issues with mobile units as they aren't always there and it's important to know when they are there. Easy fix though so no worries.
