    R7 False MRCD alerts??

    I was driving in SE Calgary and my R7 Kband went off the charts when approaching a mobile radar speed sign then the MRCD alert went off. Do these traffic speed incorporate MRCD?

    I really like the platform escort run on, easy to use with iPhone, wireless wifi up grades and escort live. However escort cant compete with the R7 which works for me. Hopefully Uniden will incorporate some of escorts ideas or escort releases a detector that works for me

    Yah.. i hear u, my R7 alerted me with a weak k band signal (24.1) 10 feet in front of a mobile photo radar SUV. When i pulled up beside it my directional arrows flash 2 or 3 times to the side and cut out. That redflex (if that’s what it is) is invisible

    Are their any reputable shops in the Calgary area that install laser jammers?

    The crappy thing is my job involves driving 6-8 hours a day in Calgary, I’m only allowed so many photo radar tickets and officer issued speeding tickets before job termination becomes an issue. I have no problems spending a couple of bucks on a good radar detector. Thanks for all your info

    Thanks i really appreciate the info, I purchased the iX last week used it for a couple of days and upgraded to a R7. Just trying to decide either to send it back to Amazon or give it to my wife. After reading u post its going back to Amazon. To be honest I’m not sure it even works properly.

    Amazon is selling escort iX for $350 CA, are these units out dated or worth the price?

    Uniden R7 vs. Edmonton

    I’ve just up graded from a escort iX to an R7 last week, was hit with ka band from a sheriff just outside of calgary and a second time by RCMP. It pretty much paid for itself in 3 days of use. The red light/speed on green GPS was bang on as well. Well worth the money, I did pass through a school...
