    Mode xhanged from u to c

    Great! In that case you can use the built-in sweeps to be safe. Keep reading the JBV1 subforum for info (Official JBV1 Discussion Section) and let us know if you have any specific questions!

    "Updated" Escort Live app coming ~~Feb 1st~~ eventually

    What's this? TBNTX agreeing with the fed-up masses? And "teasing" a feature that is already part of nearly every automotive GPS app?

    Uniden R3 Keeps Rebooting

    Try crimping a new RJ11 connector on the cord, or replacing it with an aftermarket power cord from a reputable source.

    Mode xhanged from u to c

    According to the last version of the RDFGS I have, there is still K in use in the Las Vegas area. Running "u" or Euro mode with K band off, you're missing nearly half of 34.7. Stalkers are very common, so there is a significant risk you would miss legit Ka band. The Euro sweeps are fine on...

    Testing Uniden R7/STIR(ROOF)/GT360/Max360c

    The last time I tested a 360c it did the same thing, even losing the signal altogether when LOS with the gun. That was a few fw versions ago, so it's disappointing they haven't figured this out yet. If it's a hardware issue, they need to take a serious look at their QC since it seems to be a...

    Mode xhanged from u to c

    Don't run "u" mode in the US! You're missing a good amount of the 34.7 segment if you do that, and could easily miss legit Ka band radar. Euro mode default sweeps: 33.70 – 33.90 GHz 33.90 – 34.11 GHz 34.18 – 34.48 GHz 34.56 – 34.65 GHz 35.45 – 35.55 GHz The only reason you should enable Euro...

    Uniden R3 Keeps Rebooting

    The RJ11 connector on the power cord is a known weak spot. Does the adapter work in another vehicle?

    U is Euro mode. It will display C once custom sweeps are pushed.

    If u could ask mike 1 question?

    From what I can tell from the FCC filings for the BSM units, it seems the ones that most detectors still have issues with (eg Mazda, Acura, Honda, GM) are due to either unmodulated carrier signals or very narrowly modulated FMCW signals that "look like" CW radar to detectors. I'm sure all of the...

    KA I/O Low Power Straight Roadway [ How Far Is a Whiff Typical/Realistic ] [ Upper End Detectors ]

    Any modern detector is going to be able to detect Ka, whether I/O or C/O, for several miles under those conditions (flat and level, head on). In the desert, plenty of 10 mile detections have been reported. The more sensitive detectors tend to separate themselves when the terrain is more...

    Testing Uniden R7/STIR(ROOF)/GT360/Max360c

    Thanks for the testing! Interesting regarding the difference between the 360s. I believe there were reports here and on ERF of the latest fw update negatively impacted the 360(c) performance. I wonder if the same fw made it to the GT-360 yet or if it's a few versions behind? A few questions...

    GT 360 on sale $335 Amazon

    Forum rules are to have external links to items for sale (ie on Amazon) in this section. There's no conspiracy here :)

    GT 360 on sale $335 Amazon

    BuyDig/BeachCamera/eBay all had it for $299 at one point, with additional coupons lowering it further. I thought this was originally meant to be a BeachCamera/BuyDig exclusive, it's odd that neither sell it anymore. Perhaps it was a limited production run and they're clearing out the remainder...

    Radar NJSP Rt 42 south Ka 34.711-723 (3-23-19 )

    NJSP tend to allow a pretty high tolerance (like PSL+15), so traffic moves pretty quickly. Case in point, just as you pass the cop that gray sedan blows by you in the hammer lane :D BTW, good choice of vehicle for the NJ roads :)

    Radar Replacement R1 2.3 mile front detection 1.9 mile rear detection. Redline takes a nap.

    Nice detection, glad to see your (second) replacement R1 is working well! Does Uniden warranty the paid warranty repairs for any additional time (eg 90 days or 1 yr)?
