The HARD system is based on activating a visual signal (red blinking LED) in the helmet when the RD alerts, it's not based on sending audio. To be honest I don't like the audio based systems on my motorcycle.
A quick visual alert gets me to slow down, then I can glance at the frequency and better assess the threat.

The XP is not good for motorcycle use. The XP has a RJ11 power port but it does not have a headphone port.

Did in fact FW 17 come out today? Can anyone update? Can't wait to see the results.Waiting to hear to pull the trigger on a Radenso. I'm afraid with all the filters on the XP of the range on the XP. I also haven't heard on the laser capabilities of either the SE or the XP. I know that laser is almost unbeatable without a jammer but if warned by the RD far enough we can be saved from a ticket. Anyone know some laser tests done on these two?

Well it has one but to be honest unless it is scatter most likely its just going to warn you you are getting a ticket. It's that way with pretty much all RDs. For real laser protection you would have to invest in ALPs.

If you need help with laser advice talk to my buddy [MENTION=166]GotWake[/MENTION] he has a wealth of experience and will help you with what works best all though most will agree the ALP set up is the way to go.

Man, that's a feature list. Everything on it allows us the user to adjust to our area. I don't think anyone will completely eliminate all alerts from BSM. But, you can make your RD less annoying. I may have to pick one of these up for either the kiddo's or the wife's car.

I've had a scatter save (STIR+). But, for the most part it's just a ticket notification. Get some LJs.

Great list! I can tell you've been spending time comparing the two and taking notes. :)

The XP also has the Mute feature where you can just press the Mute button and have it audibly disable all K band alarms. Great for when you need a super quiet detector because you're on the phone, other people are in the car with you and are annoyed by RD's, etc.

JUST a WELL THOUGHT OUT DETECTOR !!!! The XP


What more can I say ? Waiting for mine too !!

I didn't forget. I simply wasn't joking. You know how TYPING IN ALL CAPS is considered bad form online? Going with different fonts, sizes, colors, caps, bold, italics, etc., it really is hard to read and hard on the eyes. I like your enthusiasm and what you have to share, don't get me wrong, but the presentation of your posts is pretty painful to read. Maybe it's just me, but that's been my experience.

Well, Benzr's posts march to a different drummer for sure but depict him very accurately. He is just as excited about this subject as he is helpful.
He is good people.
He read a post about me going on a trip and contacted offering his Radenso for the trip and drove out of his way to meet me on my job site to hand it over.

I'm sure he will take into consideration the comments here and come up with something. But most likely not to demonstrate a total submission.;)

Hmm. I think it's time to pull the trigger. After having and loving my 950, before it got stolen... :( I was going to buy the DFR7 but I think the extra $$ is justified by all these features. If I were to order one today, should I expect it within 5-7 business days? The website still says "coming soon" but also says it is in stock.

Also, can't wait to test this out on the local streets of western New York as well as NYC. The filtering is what excites me the most (as the 950 did) :D
