    R7 mute bug?

    Sorry if I missed this in another thread. Searching on tapatalk is a PITA. When I get an alert on the r7 and try to mute it, it only works about half the time. If I mute before or after the voice announcement it works fine but if I hit mute during the voice part of the alert, it doesn’t mute and...

    BMW Runflat tires vs. non RFT & plug kit vs. non RFT & spare?

    Thanks for the input guys! I just ordered a set of non runflats. Continental extreme contact dws06 to be exact. I had the same tires on my Maxima and loved them. I’m just going to keep a compressor and a plug kit for the time being but I am going to keep the best looking one of my old runflats...

    BMW Runflat tires vs. non RFT & plug kit vs. non RFT & spare?

    So My 2013 328i is going to need a set of tires soon. It currently has the bridgestone driveguard runflat tires. These tires are noisy and could handle better so I am thinking of doing away with them. I am planning to go with the continental extremecontact DWS06. I have two options since these...

    Are fears justified buying 10yr old bmw 6 cyl turbocharged 3 series?

    Hope you don’t have to put a turbo on it ever. My 2013 328i sport with 100k on the n26 is in the shop for a $3k turbo replacement as we speak. Not cool lol.

    How to Jam HikVision Anti-Texting & No Seat Belt ANPR System?

    I already have 5% ceramic tint on all of my windows and the top foot of the windshield. If these were around me I would be adding 35% Ceramic to the entire windshield for sure to see if that would do it. Of course I’ve been thinking of doing this anyways [emoji13]

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    The one I installed in my truck a year ago has so far had a broken fuse holder and now the mute button is stuck in. I’m now just living with it like I would have bought the cheap universal hardwire kit.

    TMG- Impala triple head placement !!

    This was my 9500ci with LSPs on my old impala. It was JTG on legacy guns with heads as shown but probably would have gone with the upper grill if the VPR guns were around at the time.

    Beware of twist together/glass fuse direct wire cords.

    I typically do this as well but I figured since the truck had a specific connection point from the RAP circuit for the connection of aftermarket or after thought gm add ons, I’d just use that. I figured it was protected off of an accessory fuse. Lol apparently not.

    Beware of twist together/glass fuse direct wire cords.

    So I’ve used direct wire cords for many years and have never had an issue so this is probably a fluke thing but it’s enough to make me switch to the blade style fuse holders from now on. I installed a uniden direct wire cord in my truck 6-8 months ago. I apparently hit a bump hard enough to...

    Uniden R7 Announced & features discussion thread

    So I was trying to look this up this morning but I’m on my phone in the search engine on Tapatalk isn’t working for me. So forgive me if this topic has been covered recently and I have managed to miss it. The r7 appears to be the perfect radar detector for me. My father is still using the escort...

    R7 FW is on Uniden's site now v122.123.111

    I got a download failed error, retried it and it worked fine, did a factory reset, changed settings, and all appears normal. It is detecting and acting normal. I think I’m good? Anyone else have this issue?

    R7 only has 9 Ka segments?

    Interesting, I don’t see 35.5 but even if I did. Kustom and Decatur don’t seem to drift as far as stalkers luckily. I can’t see many real issues coming from it tbh. Just curious

    R7 only has 9 Ka segments?

    Ahh my bad. I didn’t see that. This thread can be deleted if needed.

    R7 only has 9 Ka segments?

    Not that it really matters to me but I noticed the r3 has 10 ka segments and scans up to 36 ghz but the r7 only has 9 segments and caps ka band at 35.7ghz. I wonder what the reasoning for the change was.

    UNIDEN R7 - All discussions relating to mounting your R7

    I’ll have my r7 today and plan to use the double cup mount. My question, are the new uniden suction cups useable? The old black ones that came with my r3 were total junk and wouldnt stick to anything for more than a few minutes. I used the uniden bracket with escort suction cups for the r3.

    Official Launch Date for Uniden R7 has been set for Monday 4/15

    I really hope that there aren’t people canceling orders just to order somewhere else with hopes that they can get a unit a few days sooner. My order is staying with the guy who has always taken care of forum members........I’ll happily wait until 4/15
