I reviewed the footage, and I am 0.5m from the white line, 2.5M of shoulder, and 3m behind a small tree for the approx distance from the shoulder to the camera - total distance to car approx 6-7.5M max when photo taken.
Interesting - the spec from the operator's manual gives the range of measured distances from 10 - 75m.

The operator (if watching) can trigger a manual photo aquisition if required

10M would be the absolute maximum in my opinion.

I believe it's more like 7M based on this occurrence.

Just bumping up a very old thread - I've spoken to winterbrew regarding rear sensor placement for VPS and wanted to know if there was anyone else who regularly encounters these - care to share your sensor setup - angle outwards etc?

I will be running 3 sensors - 2 RX and 1 TX on my STI and 3 RX on my daily driver (larger car)

Thanks

TX in the centre at 0 degrees ?

Have AL given any guidance yet for the use of the TX vs Poliscan ?
TX Sensors should always be straight and level. You just want to tilt your regular sensors since those will do the receiving and also fire back against the Poliscan.

2-3 phones on the dash, don't worry about police finding jammers. Once they see that, they'll think you're a drug dealer haha! I'd be distributing the load there. Not good hearing dragon eyes creeping in. I'm now praying for a recession so it's unaffordable haha!

I used to have three RX positioned with LHS and RHS angled out and one in the centre.

After removal of sensors and a completely updated stealth rear install, I had to do away with the angles, and I have three rear facing straight Rx heads.
From my limited understanding on TX install locally, TX heads and Australia programming by ALP are not actively supported.

I’m just interested to know if new collision avoidance systems (CAS) in modern vehicles, which I’ve heard use same or similar technology as laser jammers, can create problems with the placement of the jammer heads and operation of a laser jammer system? And, does the CAS technology interfere with the Police laser speed guns in NZ? Also, has anyone any experience with distinguishing between CAS and jamming units when challenged by Police in NZ?
