Hello everyone new registration on forum before I used to just browse around. I’ve had escort detectors since I started driving I’ve had the 9500ix, original max, max 360 and now the redline360c. Glad I waited for the redline to have all the features I wanted. NYC has a ton of speed cameras now so mrcd detection was needed. Gave my old my radar max360 to my mother to get used to driving with one she had gotten a few camera tickets. Figured I’d upgrade her to the newer Max 360c hoping it would pick up mrcd and well it doesn’t at all the redline gives a block block and a half warning. So firmware update doesn’t mean the hardware can.

Welcome!

Interesting results. Are both detectors running with the latest firmware?

Are you running with MRCD or MRCT on the RL360c?

Your results are interesting considering @Heywood recently did some testing and found that the RL360c didn't detect the MRCD, but the Max360c did, the opposite of what you saw.

Welcome to the RDF!

RL360c will serve you well. Man if I already had an RD, I could not have pulled the trigger on a $750 detector with Theia coming in the near future. But that is me. Glad you have been browsing around. Tons of info on here. Enjoy!

DeBlasio's thirst for $$$ is insatiable & why more Cams are in your future, maybe Santa will bring the Holy Grail of RD's in 2020.

Hey vortex the redline was running with mrcd and mrct on maybe I should turn off mrct and do it again the redline has been updated to latest firmware As of Monday. And the max360 was at 1.13. It’s also raining out when I did the drive so even the redline was alerting alittle later then normal

Yea theia is looking good but running escort for so long and the rl360 was available now. I’d prob end up buying theia after then first wave goes out. Needed something simple for my mom to use for now she forgets to turn on Waze lol so something that’s set it and forget it works best

Ah yeah, sounds like you were detecting MRCT then. IIRC, they didn't add that to the Max360c because it would create too many false alerts and so Escort relies on their GPS database instead to alert to those fixed camera systems. Does it at least give you an alert that way, even if it's not detecting the MRCT signal itself?

If it’s in NYC, I thinks it’s primarily MRCT.
The M360C can’t detect MRCT.... MRCD only.

There’s individual settings in the R360C for both.

The M360C only offers Multiradar Off/On.

I can’t remember, but there seems to be a new notification in the Top left corner of the display now that shows “Md”. For the life of me, I can’t remember if that was on one of the rare R360C alerts, or something new to the M360C alert.

It use to be just a “M” top left of the frequency display.

@Vortex Ok just did it again with the redline having mrct off and mrcd on it still went off saying m 24.087 then hooked up the 360c and still nothing at the speed camera so I drove longer this time around till I hit a speed sign it went off for k so its picks that up so it’s not totally dead. Then while waiting at a stop sign it falsed to something saying md 24.145

Blue is the 360c and the red is redline

@RichieRacer Welcome. I was born and raised in NYC. Down in south Jersey now but still work in the city. If you see a speed cam that is NOT marked on Waze please message me the location/direction and I will add it.

Welcome. Good to see another NYC members here. I run the R7 w 1.33 and it picks up the speed cams with about 400-1000 ft of range depending on environmental factors. I wanted to upgrade to R360C but it looks like the range is similar if not worst than R7. Hopefully Theia is an upgrade. Speedcams are a way of life here now and wont be going away in the foreseeable future. There is even talks about NYPD not being allowed to make traffic stops in NYC anymore so enforcements will come via cams. Crazy times ahead.

@Heywood @Vortex
I figured out what was going on with the mrcd and mrct with my redline with help of looking at the app also so I drove around with mrct option off and mrcd on and the radar picks up the cameras reading m24.087. This lead me to believe that the cameras in my area where mrcd. After a few frustrating tests with both of them I tried running the redline with the opposite settings mrct on and mrcd off still reads m24.087 no matter which one is on or off it seems like it’s showing up the same on the redline and only shows as mrct on the app. I was Able to get a mrcd False on the max360c reading md 24.145(no camera in area It did have a slight k band pop up passing a camera idk if it was the camera doing it or not.

Weird, but I’m glad your able to get something.
Could you post the address of the camera your looking at?
We have a few other members on RDF in NYC that have a couple of different options to chase this.

The speed cams will have three frequencies when there are NO k band filters on but it will be extremely noisy. I find the cams to run around 24.7x/8x and then 24.114/9 as a third frequency

Thanks. Seeing the number of frequencies helps. 3 frequencies would lead to an assumption that it’s MRCT.

It’s not the best way to see them, but it’s the only tool in our toolbox to track it and try to nail it down.
