I am new to this forum, it looks great, there is plenty of info here and everyone seems helpful.
I have a few questions. I live in Victoria Australia, my question I guess is more for any Aussies out there, what detector are you using, and secondly does it actually work. In my daily driving I come across many speed cameras us alot of us in Victoria will do, most of them are the old Gatsometer cameas, the old ones in the blue box, and more recently the grill mounted cameras. Here is the dilemma
I have owned 2 detectors one back in 99 which was a Bel 845sti and now a Whistler 1788, guess what neither have or ever will detect these speedn cameras. Last night I noticed an old blue camera near where I live, it was fairly quiet on the road, so I connected up the Whistler, and drove right past the camera, you guessed it no warning at all, the detector did not even signal. So went to a friends house picked up his Escort 8500 guess what no signal, laser guns sure no problem, speed cameras forget it.
So my question is no BS, do these things actually detect photo cameras, such as the old Gatsometer, I would be curious as to what other people in Australia are using. And are you able to pick up these cameras?
I am thinking of getting a V1, but who knows if the detect them either, can somone recommend a detector that will work on cameras?
