    R7 Blendmount

    eek can you cancel? It fits, but it’s super wobbly and vibrates like crazy.

    Yeah, depending on the length of the middle section. They have longer and shorter parts, but you're right, I need it to clear my dashcam. :)

    R7 Blendmount

    The DFR7 clip is the teeny clip I mentioned above that fits, but the detector wobbles a lot. The DFR9/R3 clip fits, but it blocks access to the volume up/down buttons and its tongue is sliiiiightly too wide so it makes it difficult to mount and mounting. This is the 3rd gen one. The first gen...

    R7 Blendmount

    haha, he reached out to me afterwards and asked me not to recommend the XP clip for the R7. It’s not designed for it and they recommend waiting for the R7 clip. I can understand that given that the RPSE clip technically fit the R3, only to eventually wind up damaging the release clip of the R3...

    heh, I'd actually talked to Uniden a little while ago and arranged to have them send an R7 over to BM. It sounds like they didn't wind up doing that though. Maybe they didn't have enough units on hand for testing/development? I don't know.

    haha wow, this thread is from 5 years ago now. She and I wound up dating for a few months, but we've long since broken up and I'm now married to someone else. :)

    R7 Testing

    Here’s a quick video I put together going over some of the biggest differences I’m noticing between the R3 and the R7.

    R7 Testing

    It’s just fine. I’m running my R7 off a V1 power cable without issue. :)
