    made a visit to hq

    You took the words right out of my mouth. This forum has turned into a wasteland, so it’s nice to talk about something until Valentine opens up sales again. It’s not like there is a flood of threads taking up valuable real estate. I didn’t understanding why the others got locked down. It’s good...

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    Originally had the safe and sound and it only lasted a few months. The official one I have had for almost a year and it works flawlessly. I just want to add, that I also didn’t like the blue light on the safe and sound. I’m sure most of these wire kits can have an occasional bad apple, but I...

    Anyone else having their R7 not alert to Laser?

    Thanks for that. To be honest, the area I traveled the most probably didn’t have enough cars with laser, so I never saw it that much. I think I’ll wait to see if hell freezes over and Valentine brings out a new version of the v1. If not, I’ll probably just go for another r7. By that time maybe...

    Anyone else having their R7 not alert to Laser?

    I keep hearing how the v1 falses a lot on laser. Is this only in the last year or so? Are the new cars causing the false alerts? I sold mine a few months after the R3 came out and almost never got a false alert. I used to love it for the speed cameras in Maryland. I’ve thought about getting...

    Anyone else having their R7 not alert to Laser?

    Before I sent my r7 back, I did get an indirect laser save. What I mean by that, is that there was a mobile unit set up in a suv in opposing traffic shooting laser. This was on a dual highway btw. The r7 shockingly picked it up. Now, I wouldn’t have gotten a ticket anyway, because I was going...

    Speed Limit for a camera location

    Yeah, I have the same issue. That pretty much happens with almost every speed camera I come to. I’m glad they at least added the ability to mute it. As far as them telling you that you can set the speed, I’m pretty sure the person that told you that was completely wrong. It would be nice to at...

    Finally seeing my R7 shine. So happy when I returned my 1st, I got a second

    Yes, I’m extremely happy I did that. I originally bought my r3 from BRD, but I got it after it had been out for awhile and I knew what I was getting. I would have done it this time, but I was a little worried about getting something that hadn’t been through enough testing. It’s always a gamble...

    Finally seeing my R7 shine. So happy when I returned my 1st, I got a second

    Yep, I ran into the same issues with a unit from BB serial 646. I updated to newest firmware and it still seemed less sensitive than my r3. Also the rear horn seemed more sensitive than the front. I decided to return it for now. I think I’ll wait and see what Valentine does or doesn’t do first...

    UNIDEN R7 - All discussions relating to mounting your R7

    I stick it up dry and mark the glass with a marker. It’s not too forgiving. I also have a roll of 3m, from amazon, if I screw it up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    NEW V1 IS COMING!

    They don’t do that anymore, but I think they can deny you if you return too many things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    NEW V1 IS COMING!

    Elite members get 30 days and no restocking fee. There are a couple of exceptions, but I don’t think radar detectors are are part of those excepts. That’s why I mentioned I was an elite member so people wouldn’t think the 30 days was for everyone. I’m not usually an elite member at bestbuy...

    NEW V1 IS COMING!

    I have a R3 also, and the build quality is about the same. It’s also very thick. Makes it hard to put up between my rear view mirror and the headliner. Not a huge big deal, but wish it were a little thinner. The screen is nice and big, so I guess you can’t have it both ways. I’ll have to see how...

    NEW V1 IS COMING!

    Might not be a bad idea. V1’s really hold their value. I tried to buy a used one, before I decided on the r7, and couldn’t get a good deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    NEW V1 IS COMING!

    I’ve got the r7, which I really can’t complain about, but I’m secretly hoping an updated V1 will convince me to send back my r7. I purposely bought from Best Buy in case something like this were to happen. I got a month by being an elite member l, so it will be very close. Sent from my iPhone...
