Hey welcomme!
Are you running any detectors at the moment to combat that redflex?

Welcome on board. I'm originally from the UK.

If your interested we've got a European database built for the Uniden R3 and R7. We can also update it for your redflex cameras if needed.

Hey mate, welcome aboard :cool:. Where in Ireland are you at all? Cork here, obviously lol :rofl:

Glad to see we have a few things in common. A GTI and an STi-R Plus. My GTI is a MK5 and the STiR Plus is just a regular one I bought from KMPH in Canada around ten years ago so I would be very interested in seeing how your version compares to it as the vans are very hard to detect, even with mine mounted vertical in the grill like yours. Sometimes, I get so little range on them, I can read the reg plate and the odd time, I get around 100 metres or more but not much.

You probably already know this but the guards here use laser mostly. For the most part, it's the old guns like LTI 2020/Marksman and the Ultralyte but I have recently seen them put up a picture of a Truspeed on their Twitter account so you are going to need to get a good jammer or you will still be vulnerable to them and they are usually hidden a lot better than the vans are so that would be my main priority TBH.

This is one of the best detections I've gotten with my beltronics stir plus international.
This is another video showing how the windscreen affects detection range.https://youtu.be/EvutPLncs9s This was one of the first videos I put on utube when I purchased the X50 black international.

Welcome man!

I'm yet to find a detector that can deal with Redflex with reasonable warning.

Hi again.

Tried to reply on my laptop but all I can do is quote you but for some reason, I can't add any text to the reply.

Cool videos. Looks like a Mk5 GTI as well lol. Definitely would meet up with you at some point but this weekend is booked out now and the weather is crap tomorrow anyway.

Yes would be interesting to meet up. I took these videos today all the detectors are running the same settings. The stir plus international is the first to go off being mounted vertical in the grill then the redline international on the next video it's the same with the X50 black international.

Who even needs a detector, the way they are reliably hanging out there the whole time? Lol. Cool videos though and it's good to see that your STi-R+ is performing so well. Unfortunately, it can be a lot worse in other areas depending on the geography etc. These things are definitely a pest :mad:
