    V1 WILL be updated

    My V1 is still in its original 2003 configuration. I was finally getting around to forking out for an upgrade when I discovered “Temporarily out of stock” months ago. I will upgrade/replace when they become available again, but in the interim, I used the situation as an excuse to buy an R7...

    V1 WILL be updated

    So far, so good. I’m using it on my motorcycle and my one major challenge is getting the audio into my Bluetooth headset (Cardo Packtalk Bold). It’s already a Bluetooth jungle on my bike with my iPhone, GPS, digital dash, and headset. Now I’m trying to find a way to add another BT device to the...

    V1 WILL be updated

    Totally share your frustration. I've been running a long-in-the-tooth V1 for 16 years. Went to upgrade and "Our UPGRADE program for serial-number XXXXXXXXXX is temporarily unavailable. When the program resumes, it will be announced here." After waiting a few months, my patience finally wore out...

    I am using exactly the same "code" and for some reason the editor drops the formatting after I save it and move to a different page. I enter the following: {IMG]https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?attachments/115537/{/IMG] Replace the two squiggly brackets with square ones Save (BB code toggled...

    Best all around windshield flagship detector - as of August 2019

    I tend to stay within 5-10 KPH of the PSL in Canada, mostly because I want the fuel range. If I gas up in Detroit or Buffalo, I can make it across to the other without having to stop and refuel (and pay Canadian gas prices).

    Thanks. I've been using existing posts to determine whether it's working and that's where I see the user bar address instead of an image. 1569006546 It does when I save the signature (with BB code off), but the image tags {IMG} and {/IMG} (using the square brackets) disappear when I leave and...

    Best all around windshield flagship detector - as of August 2019

    I just replaced (today) my 16 year old V1 with an R7. I've been looking to upgrade my V1, but finally ran out of patience. The R7 was my choice because of its range, higher immunity to RDD, MRCD detection and future GPS auto lockout. I travel a lot through Canada (Detroit <-> Buffalo), so...

    Try as I may, I cannot seem to get an R7 user bar in my signature. I turn off BB code, paste in the image address (https://www.rdforum.org/index.php?attachments/115537/), wrap it with the IMG brackets, and save without turning on BB code. However, in the signature, it just shows the image...

    V1 WILL be updated

    I emailed Valentine One sales: I have an older V1 (software version 3.813) that I'd really like to upgrade given its age. Upon visiting your website, I see the upgrade program and new sales are unavailable. I am taking a long motorcycle road trip in early-mid October and would like to have a...

    R7 Motorcycle mode?

    I'm beginning to think perhaps my Packtalk Bold may have an issue. Regardless of Bluetooth transmitter (SM10, TaoTronics TT-BA11 or a little USB powered one I tried), it's always an either/or situation. I just experimented with totally removing the GPS from the mix, so it's just the Packtalk...

    R7 Motorcycle mode?

    I have the BMW Nav VI and unfortunately there's no hardwire audio out, only Bluetooth. So to hear anything (nav directions, music or phone), it needs to be paired with a Bluetooth comm system. It is paired with my Packtalk Bold as a GPS (which also supports phone calls). All music is streamed...

    R7 Motorcycle mode?

    The iPhone is only connected to the GPS (not the SM10). The GPS is connected to the Packtalk Bold (on channel 1). The SM10 was connected to the Packtalk Bold (on channel 2). In theory, it should work, but in practice, it doesn't. For some reason, it's an either/or situation ... audio from GPS or...

    R7 Motorcycle mode?

    When I was using a Sena 20S, I had it set up to get phone & GPS nav directions on one channel and music (iPod) & radar alerts through the SM10 on the other channel. It worked pretty well, except the 20S kept failing (especially in cold weather). In frustration, I gave up on the 20S and switched...

    R7 Motorcycle mode?

    I have the Cardo Packtalk Bold and a Sena SM10. When I pair the SM10 to the Packtalk Bold (mobile phone 2 Bluetooth channel), it "blocks" all the audio coming in over the other Bluetooth channel (everything from my GPS ... nav directions, music and phone). Are you using both of your Packtalk...

    Getting detector audio into helmet

    My setup is a Bluetooth jungle with 4 separate devices ... iPhone, BMW Nav VI (GPS), BMW TFT (electronic dash) & Cardo Packtalk Bold (Bluetooth com), but it works pretty well. I get music, GPS directions and phone calls through the GPS while the iPhone shares data with the TFT. Unfortunately...

    R7 or Max 360C for a bike?

    I drive a lot through Illinois and Canada (Detroit <-> Buffalo), so MRCD/CT detection, range and RDD immunity were pretty important in my decision process. The major downside for the R7 is the lack of Bluetooth connectivity, a major draw for the MAX 360C. My real frustration is getting audio...

    R7 or Max 360C for a bike?

    I'm riding a '19 BMW R1200GS Adv and have a very long in the tooth V1 (16 years old) that has never been upgraded. Now that I finally decided to upgrade, I get stuck in the "in 2 weeks" infinite loop. So I'm trying to decide between an R7 or Max 360C to replace it. I decided to try the R7 and...

    Uniden R7 Build Quality

    Build quality, manufacturing defect, quality control, infant mortality, whatever ... it's frustrating to say the least. Thankfully i hadn't done anything to it like attach the steel plate for the RAM magnetic mount. Back it goes to Best Buy for a refund.
