Default Where's the technology to defeat Redflex cams?

In New Zealand and Australia and many other countries, law enforcement are using fixed pole and van cams that emit a very low strength narrow K band signal that is very difficult for even the top line detectors to detect until you're almost on top of the them.........and yes, this includes the Escort line up.

Where is the R&D to defeat these cameras? Is Escort even looking at this seriously? When will we see an effective reliable windscreen mounted countermeasure to Redflex cameras? Anyone?

Yes, we have been. MAX Ci is the most sensitive detector ever and gives you the greatest warning distance against these Redflex cameras (along with the best filtering of vehicle collision avoidance).

I live in Scottsdale, AZ and Reflex is proliferating here (there headquarters are here). My 9500IX, along with your other units, go down to K Band 24.150. I used to get alerted to the semi permanent installations but not anymore..... they are now using 23.9 which makes my unit useless and you have nothing else in a window mount that will work.

Any chance for a software upgrade to catch 23.9???

The 9500ix is a very outdated unit that was replaced by the IX model. There are no further updates for the 9500ix.

Our International models are designed to detect extended K band signals (23.950-24.050 GHz).

Yes they are but the sensitivity is not the greatest and gives you very little warning from reflex

Redflex are low powered and usually aimed away from traffic (obtaining a speed measurement after you pass them). No detector will give you much, if any warning to them. MAX Ci has the greatest sensitivity of any detector so it will give you the greatest warning and is totally stealth.

Crowd sourced alerts through Escort Live will certainly help. We recently opened up Escort Live internationally so you should start seeing the benefits of it. What is nice is radar based alerts are confirmed radar alerts. Expect to see more from us along these lines in the near future.
