The R3/R1 is definitely planting itself in a very good position. The combination of price/performance....heck its competing with remotes. That's freaking crazy!

Absolutely. I think the key question is: where is the point where the incremental sensitivity causes more problems (falsing, detecting radar that isn't really a threat to you) than useful range. I don't think we are there yet with the R3, but we may be getting close.

The " point" you refer to is when is enough ENOUGH? I love the range of my Redline and from the tests results you've posted absolutely adore the range of the R3. However, this goes back to the old adage: When is enough ENOUGH or when is it too much? How far out, absent that errant io shot do we really need to be? If 2000 feet is more than enough for a save, why do we need 5000 feet ? Yes, I love my RL range and the new R3 range. But, at this point, shouldn't we all be focusing on filtering? Splitting hairs as to who got the first Ka alert becomes ultimately silly when either unit(s) will provide a save. Even at 200-300 back, the old V1 is still providing saves.

Who are you and what have you done with @PointerCone? ...lol

What you are saying does make sense. Filtering has become key. And it is hard to keep things quiet on K-band in urban environments especially when a detector is this sensitive. While the R3 filtering isn't bad, if you leave the K band sensitivity up in the stratoshere, even if you are only having problems with the same cars, there are going to be more of them in the range of your detector (as well as more stationary alerts). City mode really helps the R3 right now. Hopefully Uniden will give us the ability to chose from various levels of K band sensitivity in the future. Letting users fine tune the K band sensitivity will go a long way towards advanced users' happiness.

If they could offer K band filtering options that would take the detector to whole other level. But in a way isn't that what Radenso is doing with low speed muting? If you set the upper range for highway speed, then you select the amount of filtering you want to apply. How is Uniden going to differ with their filtering scheme?

That is exactly what Radenso is doing with low speed muting and Auto City mode. The R3 already has low speed muting. It's not clear to me how they might decide to implement adjustable K and X band sensitivity (if they do), but I think Radenso implemented it really well. But the XP is so quiet anyway, that I don't even mess with Auto City or low speed muting.
