Seems like a GPS database (like red light cameras) is the best defense against these things- unless they are moved around a whole lot

Thankfully, we don't have this kind of crap to deal with here in Texas. but just looking at pictures in the thread linked below, it looks like it might possibly be MRCT.

Typically in AZ cities have used road sensors to measure predictive speed to issue red light or speeding tickets. The radar on top of the boxes threw me off a bit. I wasn't expecting it. The road sensors are high maintenance because the hot summers are hard on our roads in AZ. It is possible PV got sick of rewiring the sensors every year and went with RADAR.

Absolutely. Either Waze or JBV1 both inform me sooner than V1. The vans they use are still a bitch. Being observant is the best tool for those. Having identified them as MRCD or MRCT, more testing is needed. I'd like to document the behavior of my three RD in various states of filtration.

What is this ? Looks similar. This is near me in Knightdale NC in BUS HWY 64 in front of I-HOP. @johnboy00

All those cameras in PV have red-light and speed combined. Don’t quote me, but as you mentioned, I believe the RLC portion utilizes the pizeo strips imbedded in the asphalt, and the speed portion utilities that square radar panel you shared. If you drive around Phoenix proper, the cams have been deactivated, but they still haven’t removed them. They also have that same square radar above the camera. As far as I know they’re MRCT. I do now that the ones in Phoenix and PV are Redflex brand, but use a different technology that the radar used in the mobile SUVs, which utilize the AGD 340 radar. As you’re aware those mobile ones alert as regular K band and not MRCD on the Unidens.

That is the same box Redflex uses in AZ. It's photo capture of speed or red light most likely.

Phoenix, Tempe, and a few others have discontinued their programs. PV has not. Mesa, scottsdale, and Chandler also have active programs.

NYC uses the MR?? for speed and redlight enforcement. Waze is on top of it, and the NRDSP picks it up as well. V1G2 now does as well, but i wouldnt depend on it solely...

My Uniden R3 & R7 report the signal as MRCD. They pick it up very well and I get very few false MRCD alerts. With my Red Line 360c I don't turn on the MRCD/CT detection because all the cams are in the Escort data base you get a warning about 300ft before the kill zone. As for my V1G2, it's useless against these cams, you must run WAZE on your phone to be protected.

Or JBV1.

I would absolutely appreciate it if you didn't continue to say that Waze is the only option because of your limitation in using iOS. Currently, the iOS apps don't include camera alerts. That could change.

Android has (and always has had) a larger market share that iOS worldwide. Being iOS myopic doesn't help the new people that are trying to understand the MRCx situation.

Many of us try to be accurate; and that requires that we change some of our statements to reflect other options we find out about even if we don't use them personally.

Please, I beg you to add two or three words to your opinion.
"Waze or JBV1". Maybe you could say, "Waze or reportedly JBV1" if you want to distance yourself from it a bit.

Help the new people out! :)

To use JBV1 you must have an android phone. For me I only have an I phone and I do not want to run an extra phone just to use the V1, so when I'm in NY it will stay in my garage. Waze is very good and easy to use and it covers you for what the V1G2 is missing. It's just a personal thing , I want the detector to do ALL the work at $400 to 750. But it's up to each user to decide what is best.

Unfortunately the Uniden’s will alert everything as MRCD.
Doesn’t matter if it’s MRCD, MRCT, or Gatso.

The R1, R3, and R7 are all the same.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Redflex, (Which is 2 non-modulated K band signals that switch.... and most K band detectors can detect... but not easily) as MRCT as well.
I know @Mad Hatter and @TonyPHX have been all over those RLC’s.
I can’t remember, but hopefully they’ll chime in and tell you exactly what it is.
I actually avoid those parts of town now. I am so angry they need to litter my community with that GARBAGE. : )

These things really irk me. Exotic technology paid for by our tax dollars to tax us further. It is just a scam.
