Hard to say.
This area is quite a curvy and hilly road, so I could certainly see this reducing range.
That said, this area had a pretty gentle slope and was quite straight.
A little odd that the detection range was not better.
That said, I still notice pretty decent performance from the R1...
I usually don't run into cops roaming in this area with radar.
What do you folks think of the detection range here on the Uniden R1?
Also excuse me, I like to talk to myself when I'm driving it seems haha
Thanks folks for the comments
Currently this setup seems to be JTG on an ancient Ultralyte LR. (1998 MFG date lol).
Hopefully soon I can test it against something stronger and see how it performs.
Out of curiosity, how would this Ultralyte compare to something like a PLIII? Would that be anymore...
Probably a safe bet that it'll sell for $1000ish if not more
Looks like this has been listed several times now with no bites at the starting bid of $500 USD.
It seems to be in reasonable condition and...
I personally have my R1 hardwired, but, its also mounted on a blendmount. For that reason, it is very easy to spot lol. Not stealthy at all.
Solid idea. I'm scratching up my lens pretty good taking down the R1 atm.
To those that utilize a R7;
Are you at all worried about theft of your device?
At $600 CAD, if I personally owned one, I would be a little concerned of someone smashing in my windshield to take the device.
Which I suppose would result in my taking the device into my home/work with me...
Picked up mine from Montana today lol.
Looks like its in really good shape for such an antiquated LIDAR unit.
Acquires distance measurements no problem, and speed also (with quite some difficulty unless the gun is 100% stable.)
All in all, good purchase for $75 USD IMO.
I actually picked up a LTI Ultralyte LR myself, on a different listing however.
This one is certainly much more worn than the one posted here.
It does seem to have some solid scratching on the lens.
That said, I am able to acquire speed readings with no problem.
Do the scratches impact the...
