    Uniden R7 Firmware updates! Is it coming?

    I just cannot imagine why it would take 6+ months to issue an update. Not to compare apples and oranges, but it reminds me of the experience I had with Whistler CR97: it had (still has as far as I know) major problem mixing K/Ka alerts (strong K displayed as Ka), but the vendor never did come up...

    R7 Not Alerting / Showing Detection From Speed Sign

    I believe that is due to the very sensitive rear horn. Anytime there are enough objects around to reflect radar signal (heavy traffic, buildings, overpasses, etc) and signal itself is strong enough - most likely the arrows will bounce for a short time before locking in to a specific direction...

    R7 Not Alerting / Showing Detection From Speed Sign

    If an alert is muted (GPS lockout), it will still be displayed in Gray color. Some K band speed signs are filtered as BSM, so no alert at all.

    Radar Uniden R1 K band City mode detection

    I think you mean 24.15x and 24.17x Yes, the ramp up should never be ignored, as almost always it's the confirmation of a real alert.

    Radar South Florida: FHP KA Segment 6

    Same here. The only few (maybe 3 or 4) KA falses I have had were all at 33.7xx, and 2 of them I definitely saw a RD on the windshield of a vehicle nearby...

    Radar Uniden R1 K band City mode detection

    I see. Then that was a great detection, especially for City Mode. 1579221437 And the frequency is right on for a real alert. Do you get any falses near that frequency in your area?

    Looks like things got quiet in the TMG world after some test results were recently shared... Anything new?

    INFO TMG VPR Head Test

    @RaggedEdge and @PY004, thank you for the details you have provided here in regards to LTI units! Is there anything out of the ordinary in regards to their beam width? Maybe more narrow than other guns at certain distances? Or it's just their firmware that makes them hard to overcome?

    INFO TMG VPR Head Test

    I wonder if the IPTs were at around the 2,000 ft mark or closer? I guess what I'd like to know is at about what distance the initial shots were taken?

    Radar R7 - Stationary K band 24.138 at night

    Yes, still very good detection because of the bend at the beginning. I am OK with 24.11x to 24.15x. But anything .16x and .17x is very scary. Most of the BSM I encounter are within the last 2 ranges, and I usually ignore them... The ramp-up is your only friend then...

    TMG Quads on a 2002 Toyota Avalon

    @Eyeborg314, you want to make sure the horizontal distance between the outer edge of the headlight and the receiving bubble (the bigger one) is no longer than 20 inches. That's the maximum coverage area (as a radius, not diameter!), which is oval shaped, so vertically/diagonally would be shorter...

    INFO TMG VPR Head Test

    Thank you for your reply! I must apologize for my question, it was not worded correctly. I did not realize how dumb it was till I was reading this reply! What I meant was if those shots were maybe at the outer edges of coverage in each area. But your answer about "no tricky" shots answered it...

    INFO TMG VPR Head Test

    I am sure this would be an elevated topic (probably even Advanced), but I wanted to add my question here, even if I can't see the answer (if Advanced) - curious about what was the target area for those IPTs? One specific or all over?

    NY to Denver...K-wide or narrow?

    Probably they figured out K band is more challenging for RD users to distinguish false from real alerts...

    Anyone needs lidar testing in Los Angeles?

    Awesome, thank you! St Louis is 2.5 hours away from me, so no problem at all.

    Radar R7 - 33.720 False

    Hi, all. I believe this was a pesky Cobra RD that kept falsing several times at 33.720. The video shows couple of the alerts (the vehicle behind me). What got me was the sudden ramp, it was like an I/O, and really though it was a LEO before I was able to glance at the display and see the...
