    MRCT on Long Island?

    I was in the neighborhood of Island Park in Nassau County yesterday, and came upon a camera that looks identical to the NYC speed cameras (which use MRCT) and was emitting MRCD or MRCT radar. The presence of MRCT in NYC is well documented here on the forum but I have never seen a mention of it...

    HR blind to police pins?

    I used HR on a 6 hour drive today. The app worked great for the most part. However, I had one period of around a half hour during which I drove by four separate Waze reports (three same road, one opposite side), and in three out of the four cases the police were still at the marked location. I...

    2008 Highlander ALP Head Placement

    Hello all, I think I am ready to take the plunge and get an ALP system for my car. I drive a lot and I drive in areas where laser is common. I can't really afford it, but that won't stop me! I figure if I'm going to do this I'm going to do it right, and I'd like to have full protection...

    Increase warning distance for user marks?

    I have been trying out the Mark feature on the R7 recently, because I'd like to use it to mark locations on my routes where I've seen the police hiding. The implementation of the feature seems to be good, except for one thing - the built-in notification distance for a mark is 1500 feet. On local...

    Uniden R7 - Performance variance between units?

    I have just purchased my first R7 and I'm excited to test it out. I am, however, a little worried by some things I've heard on the forums regarding variance between units. For example, I see a lot of references to "cold" and "hot" R3s and R1s, and it seems that testing has shown that the...

    Anyone know of good channels focused on RD dashcam footage?

    So I've found these two channels, this one for the V1 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqdsH9yYRXUe_2cTOnbwzDg and this one for the R3 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBbVG0-o0K72vMQF6idmuKQ which basically just contain a ton of dashcam clips of them driving around and getting encounters. I...

    Uniden DFR7 apparent poor performance

    Hi all, I'm posting this here rather than the Uniden-specific forum because I'm new to the subject and the things I'm asking are probably applicable to all mid-level detectors. To make a long story short, I've now run the DFR7 on two 7-hour round trips between NYC and northwestern MA...

    Looking for recommendations

    I've answered the standard questions and also provided a bit of extra information about the research I've done and where I'm leaning currently. 1. What kind of vehicle you have and do you want a remote or a windshield mount? Currently it's a Highlander. I guess one advantage I have is...

    Hello there

    Hello RDF members, I've only recently become interested in purchasing a radar detector, since I received my first ticket and am not anxious to get more. I'm not looking to speed crazily all over the place, but more to protect myself from BS tickets like 73/65 on the interstate. (I've heard too...
