    R7 Random Reboot, GPS Error

    I have a car power adapter/splitter, and have this issue with the R7 only in the following scenario: I turn off the ignition, but leave my dash cams (2) running for awhile. RD is off. Voltage is still about 12.2 - 12.4. I turn on the ignition, and my RD powers on itself (it shouldn't!) - that...

    R7 Performance in Bulgaria

    @skd, Thank you for your feedback. I had plenty of bulgarian beer while there (of course, not when driving). I drove about 2500 km altogether, but had very few real encounters. One thing I forgot to do is enable POP for K band. Maybe I could have detected more police radars that way. In Ruse or...

    The Whistler CR97.. Would you recommend to others? Based on your experience?

    Nothing new to add to this conversation. I had the CR97, but gave up on it for the same reasons. Negatives: not good for off-axis at all, K/Ka band mix-up, not so good BSM filtering. Positives: very sensitive, plenty of config options Wish list: fixed K/Ka mix-up, frequency display for K band...

    Thank you for the input!

    R7 Performance in Bulgaria

    Not much, it picks the automatic doors, but the signal is not strong, unless I actually pull over and stop at one. Much less falses with TSF ON, but I left it off to get maximum range and sensitivity. Plenty of old cars in Bulgaria, so BSM falsing is not much of a problem. As far I can see, the...

    R7 Performance in Bulgaria

    Hi, all. I had some time driving in Bulgaria (Europe) last month, and sure had my R7 to test there. I understand this is a US-based unit, but wanted to see what it can do in Europe. Not surprisingly, police encounters were rare. In fact, I had more speed cams encounters (not GPS based...

    Radar R7 - C/O K band 24.143

    It's 55. I usually do 65 on the straight stretches, and 52-55 on curves, In this case, the vehicle in front of me was way slow on the curves, so it killed my speed. That's why I don't call this encounter a "save" - I simply did not have enough distance to maintain "my average" speed in this...

    Radar R7 - C/O K band 24.143

    So this was about 0.4 mile detection over a couple of bends, and I don't really call it a save (because the road is curvy and I have limited distance to speed up), but still I call it a good detection to keep me alerted and remind me I am in "good hands":

    The official K-Band LEO = BSM frequencies list / poll

    I have had 24.116 and 24.143 in the Ozarks area (MO) for sure, others (not sure) in between 24.121 and 24.131. Sucks, because Mazda's always cause 24.123/24.124/24.125 false alerts. This is based on R7.

    Cr 97 K/KA band BSM confusion

    I had a CR97 for over 6 months, and I was very patient, but at the end I gave up on it, as the vendor would not do anything to improve this unit. I now own a R7 and very pleased with it.

    Radar R7 save @ +30 - K band 24.121

    Good point. @mattguy10, do you recall this detail?

    Radar R7 save @ +30 - K band 24.121

    Is this a question to the OP?

    Radar R7 save @ +30 - K band 24.121

    Point taken, you are correct. I neglected to distinguish that in my post. Just wanted to add that type of K band false and its frequencies.

    Highway Radar: Waze + VASCAR aircraft alerts on Android

    I would vouch for both improvements if possible. Both are very critical for keeping you protected at all times. Today I had an airplane alert (Cessna 182 - Civil Air Patrol), and that thing closed in on me faster than I could imagine! It just happen that as I was driving north the aircraft...

    R7 - Couple of Encounters

    @RoadDogg, thanks for the input. I have no regrets trying the CR97, but ultimately fell short of my expectations. @Kennyc56, I sill like he sensitivity of the CR97, but got tired of the glitches it has, and the lack of involvement by the vendor. So I made the change. Bottom line is that the...

    Radar R7 save @ +30 - K band 24.121

    @LeftLaneInPA, After few days driving with TSF OFF - One thing that is for sure is the BSM falses: I do get more of those. As far as range, I cannot yet say. I only had one real K band encounter (I/O at half a mile, with slight bend and dip between). I've been keeping track on the frequencies I...

    R7 - Couple of Encounters

    Thanks! Wonderful indeed. That's why I posted the video. Not about range, but it was just a tricky terrain there, and the RD picked up the signal way before a visual...
