Default Difference between multiradar CD/CT?

I found the below on vortex radars website. As a person living in NYC, I turned both on, but since it goes off so much, even when I'm on the highway, I'm really thinking of turning both off. Anyone know the difference between these two other than what's below?


MultaRadar CD

The MultaRadar CD is a low powered photo radar gun used primarily in Canada, including Alberta and Quebec. Itís also used in NYC, Maryland, & Washington D.C. If the MRCD is used in your area, turn this setting on. Otherwise leave it off to avoid the unnecessary false alerts.

MultaRadar CT

The MRCT is also a low powered photo radar gun used in NYC, Chicago, and Dallas.
Leave this off if not needed in your area to avoid unnecessary false alerts.

They are both FM modulated K band signals.
The CT is simply a newer version of CD. CT is used frequently to trigger redlight cameras. To the best of my knowledge, only Escort's International versions are currently programmed to pick up CT as well as CD.

My escort app allows me to turn on both, and I'm based in NYC and bought mine from Best buy since they had it in stock randomly

On the RD itself it allows MultaRadar (MR) on/off. The last time Escort addressed MR they indicated that for the North American (NA) models MRCD was being enabled and that enabling MRCT was a possibility for the future. It may be that the App might have a separate check box for each but that it only enables MRCD on the NA model due to the firmware? Also, MRCD alerts displays as "Md"; I would assume MRCT would display as "Mt"? I would ask that Escort please clarify this for us.

I run spec fr2 and my multi radar alerts only ever said M even though the settings on the detector allow for configuration of both CD and CT

Interesting.
I'm running a M360c in spec fr2 and I have a photo of an MRCD "Md" alert on it.
I don't have a photo of a R360c displaying an MRCD alert. Another item for Escort to shed some light upon.

Very interesting. Hopefully we can get an answer on this. I'd run either just CD or CT if the other is falsing
