No, but for Calgary Alberta Canada where the only K band threat is redflex, that would be perfect. It would allow me to run with filters off and have less falses from door sensors and bsms which tend to be in the high 24 ghz range. The whole reason why this would be beneficial is because my pro m cannot pick up redflex for anything with TSRej on regardless of it's intensity. It picks up the rare ka 34.7 with no problem and with a good range off axis, it picks up K band speed signs up with no problem and with excellent range on and off axis, but it will not pick up redflex pole mounted cameras (It only picked up one variant of it), and over 5+ redflex vans it would not pick it up regardless of range if TSRej was on. I even pulled over infront of one and pointed the pro m at the radar emitter with zero alerts, until filters were turned off but even then at point blank my pro m had very poor sensitivity. This is weird since there are some guys on YouTube showing the pro m having pretty good range for redflex, and some guys showing the same issue as me with no range.

So either my pro m is deaf to low frequency K band or there are more factors at play.

Yes, NZ K band setting (23.950-24.130) would be useful for Calgary only but the moment you go outside the city limits you're going to want full K band coverage again.

Regarding the pole mounted cameras. We have had MRCT cameras in Edmonton for a while that do no transmit at all. Just because the pole is there doesn't mean it's actually transmitting. I would recommend using the GPS database for all permanent stationary cameras. If the camera is not currently in the database just use a "user mark" so you get alerted when you are close and notify Radenso so they can add it to the database.

Redflex has different variants and some are more difficult to detect than others. The newer ones (NK7) are very difficult to detect. Which videos are you referring to for good Redflex range? Are the Redflex units forward facing or rear facing? Forward facing (as seen in Calgary) will give you very little range as you're relying on reflections to detect the signal.

It's not just low frequency, it's also low powered and FMCW.

Please go back and try updating your firmware again please. No firmware has been released, as already mentioned I always will create a thread here announcing the firmware. We also send a email to anyone on the firmware email list (available on our website). Thank you

Download Radenso Pro Series Updater (v3.0 - 8/5/19) Ramdy it will not update, so I can not get the latest Red Light & Speed Camera Database just so you know.

Yeah of course, that's why I would love to have NZ k filter for Calgary use.

Yeah I use the camera alerts for pole cameras, but I just wanted to say that I tested the pro k vs. both vehicle and pole mounted redflex variations.

In regards to red flex here, yeah it's all forward facing so the reliance on reflections does suck for range. I'm not sure about the variations of redflex but all I know is my pro m was unsuccessful at detecting any of it.

In terms of the YouTube video there was a guy in NZ showing horizontal vs vertical mounted pro m vs redflex and showing it only alerted after the redflex camera. Then there was the other guy who is not very well liked here due to various leaks etc, but his videos showed alot of range.

Because I know 0 about redflex but could the pro M have a “redflex” option to turn off/on on North American detectors. Like mrcd/mrct option that can be turned on/off

If you are in NZ or AU you will have "US 18". If you are in the US, you will have US 16. We are working on having the firmware say NZ or AU instead of US for the next firmware update.

18 for the NZ/AU folks was just bug fixes. If you live in the US and after updating your Pro M you still see US 18, please private message me your serial number. Thank you!

Hi Randy, I updated my Pro M yesterday (AU sold /registered S/N) with the latest Radenso updater , and its now gone from US 18 back to US 16 (16A mentioned in the firmware filename)

Is this as expected/intended ?

Many thanks
