So, I'm trying to gather some statistics about most common MRCD/CT operating frequencies in order to find out how bad thing is that R1/R3 hardware limit at 24.050. What is the most common MRCD frequency you have seen and confirmed that it's not false?
I'm talking about 1.46 firmware users. Do you trust your R1/R3 MRCD detection performance on your daily drive? How bad thing is that infamous hardware limit? Is the range longer than MRCD reading range? I have not yet had chance to test but maybe I should be grateful for that :)
PhotoBlocker guarantees that their plate cover can block any red light or speed cam from taking photo. Do you have personal experience with it? Is it visually detectable? MRCD and Gatso are used where I live.
Gatso RT4 has just landed here in Finland. It is used in speed cams, and since they are not moving, they are not a problem at all. We use GPS-based protection against them. My Uniden R1 has performed very well here, but my fear is that one day gatso goes mobile in Finland too and will be used...
These alerts are fairly rare, but sometimes, when driving in major cities I get instantly full power MRCD alert, which lasts about 10-20 seconds, and I'm not sure is it false at all. I'm running R1 (1.46).
Photo-radar systems like MRCD and gatso RT4 cover most part of speed enforcement here. Is it actually possible to make license plates photo-immune with absorbing paint? As far as I know, these systems use both infrared light and flash. Thanks.
Gatso RT4, known here as gatso sensys sss, is used in non-moving speed cams. My phone app is enough to protect me from them, but it would still be nice to detect which ones of them are active. Their reading range is up to 150 meters. I know that Uniden does not support gatso as it is not...
Vortex said that radar detectors are useless against laser because alert comes too late. This is probably true, but I have heard that detectors are able to detect lasers when they are used on cars in front of you. Is this true and do you have some time to slow down?
Escort's pride is their TotalShield technology, which allows them to make total stealth detectors, like Redline EX. Is there a reason why such an expensive detector like Max360 does not have this protection? Thanks
These are Ka-band radars used here:
34.36 Multanova 6F
34,7 Stalker DSR 2X, Dual DSR, II MDR (very common here)
35.5 Stalker ATR
Should I use Ka Wide or Narrow against these threats? What is difference between these two options? Thanks in advance.
So I have Uniden R1 with firmware 1.46, where I live police uses a lot of MRCD/MRCT radars, but not other K band radars, and I get lot of false K band alerts from automatic doors and other cars, so I'm thinking of turning off K band. I'm wondering does that affect my detector's ability to detect...
