    Default Redflex GoSafe AGD340 / AGD341 radar reception and range

    The game is back on !!!

    it has been suggested by some that the introduction of the AGD340 system by Redflex / Gosafe has changed, and possibly ended the game for RD users, particularly V1's.

    I have a different story to tell..

    This morn i encountered a Gosafe van in a 60km construction zone.

    here are the Vids



    and



    my setup is a V1 running 3.872
    Vertically mounted
    Euro mode: On
    K band : On
    Ka band: On
    POP: On

    Looks like you got a pretty good range at front approach but second run to the rear was really bad

    from the rear there is no warning. i was alongside or just past the rear wondow of the van before my V1 alerted

    From the front i got approx 200m warning, but initially i had gotten 300m warning (not recorded) the first beep was probably a reflection from passing traffic.

    I would have like to have stayed and performed a few more runs with the V1 horizontal, but i didnt have time, and that road was a 8astard to do a U turn on

    Wow, definately a spanner in the works but the fact that these can get you both sides of the road still begs the question is the V1 good enough for Ireland? If you were flooring it I wonder would it be Game Over?

    Not sure if you've seen these before but the Enerby filters are meant to triple range of some RD's but I think it's only remote mounted models

    I propose that we use this thread to post all vids of our encounters of these vans. And if everyone gives info on what setup they have (ie RD type, Position V or H, Sw ver etc) we'll best be able to work out what works best

    Very good stuff Mike. Where was that at all BTW?

    Decent range on the first video but I suspect that if the bend in the road had been the opposite way (i.e. turning left instead of right) the radar beam would have been facing the other way (considering how the radar unit is mounted in the van) from your approach angle and not so easy to detect.

    The return trip was a disaster though and I suspect any RD, even an STI plus will have trouble with that based on the thread from the escort forum.

    It really seems like hit and miss with these things from what Ive seen so far TBH. I suppose that is due to the high and low power settings they have as options.

    Heres hoping I can add a video to this thread soon.

    i was travelling southbound on the old N8, I found the van just north of abbeyleix in a 60km construction zone

    as for the Hi and Low power settings, if these things are anything like the Robot systems, The 3 power settings only change the range at which a speed reading is taken/recorded. it doesnt actually change the radar's power output
