Nearly two months ago, TXCTG was contacted by @Vortex via pm. He had been contacted by Uniden about testing and reviewing their upcoming series of new detectors, the Uniden R3 (GPS) and Uniden R1 (No GPS). Uniden was promising a unit that would not only hang with the M3, but actually have even greater sensitivity and longer range. He wanted to know if we would be interested in testing one of the new units. So @Jag42’s and my response, of course, was not just “yes,” but an enthusiastic “oh hell, yes!!!” So over the last couple of months, TXCTG (and some other great folks on the forum) have been testing R3s and R1s over a variety of courses and all the major US radar bands. I want to thank Vortex for getting TXCTG involved in this endeavor, and also thank the other forum members who have been spending their time testing and will also be posting their results. It’s been a great experience. Finally, Jag42 and I also really want to thank Uniden for being open to letting members of this forum be involved in testing and providing feedback on the units. It’s been awesome working with Uniden!

We have quite a bit of data (somewhat of an understatement) to publish, and we think you’re all going to be quite interested in how these new offerings from Uniden stack up. Much of the TXCTG testing was against the established King of radar detection range, the Escort Redline. But we did also test against some other detectors at times, and think that was also very useful. I’m sure there will be plenty more testing of these detectors in the future, but we’re really excited about being able to provide these results today! Since this is going to be a compilation of several tests over the last couple of months, this is going to be a lengthy post. So please bear with us. I think you’ll be glad you did!

TEST NUMBER 1 – MT. CALM COURSE 03-26-2017

INTRO


This was the first testing we did, so we weren’t quite sure what to expect. I had been driving around with the R3 for a while, and it seemed pretty sensitive, but we really wanted to get some quantifiable testing done to see what was really going on.

THE DETECTORS

Uniden R3 (thanks, Uniden!)
Escort Redline - (Jag42)
Radenso Pro SE - (Jag42) (K-band only)
Radenso XP - (Jag42) (K-band only)
Uniden DFR6 - (Jag24) (K-band only)

THE COURSE

We decided to test at the Mt Calm course. Here’s a Google Maps overhead view of the course. I’m also going to include a few pictures of how the radar car was positioned for these tests, because it’s important to understanding the results. The Mt Calm Course has the radar car on a hill overlooking the highway.

RESULTS


  • I’m going to say this once here, but these next three bullets apply to all the results in this post:
  • Table for each test is ranked ordered from first to last with range, delta from the leader and percentage of the leader.
  • Graph for each test is ranked ordered from first to last with range, delta from the leader and percentage of the leader.
  • All tables and graphs are color coded by detector.

TXCTG - Mt Calm K-band Results (Graph by Rank) 03-26-2017.jpg

K-band Commentary

  • We tested several detectors on K-band. We started with the radar pointed right down the course, but both the R3 and Redline were maxing out the course. So we tried several times to determine the best angle to point the radar to get some separation, and eventually decided on about 65-70 degrees across the road.
  • As you can see, the R3 in Hwy mode is extremely sensitive on K-band. It basically crushed the competition, M3 or otherwise.

Ka- 34.7 On-Axis Angled 95* Across the Road

TXCTG - Mt Calm Ka 34.7 Results (Graph by Rank) 03-26-2017.jpg

Ka 34.7 Commentary

  • We only tested the R3 and Redline on 34.7. Again, we started with the radar pointed right down the course, but both the R3 and Redline were maxing out the course. So we tried several times to determine the best angle to point the radar to get some separation, and ultimately needed to go to 95 degrees (beyond perpendicular!) across the road.
  • We nearly fell out of our seats at how this test went. Even with the radar pointed 5 degrees past perpendicular, the R3 was still getting alerts nearly 2miles away! (except for one at a paltry 1 mile)
  • The Redline managed one alert at a mile. The rest of its alerts where .25 miles or less. Like Neo in the Matrix, we began to believe.

Ka- 35.5 On-Axis Angled 95* Across the Road

TXCTG - Mt Calm Ka 35.5 Results Table by Rank) 03-26-2017.jpg

TXCTG - Mt Calm Ka 35.5 Results Graph by Rank) 03-26-2017.jpg

Ka 35.5 Commentary

  • We only tested the R3 and Redline on 35.5. We stuck with the 95 degrees across the road that we used with 34.7.
  • Once again, we nearly fell out of our seats at how this test went. This was the Redline, the King of 35.5. Yet it was dusted by the R3, which was getting alerts between a mile and .75 mile.
  • The Redline couldn’t even manage an alert of a quarter of a mile. And on one run, it didn’t even alert at all! Not only were we beginning to believe, we were beginning to be amazed!

Ka- 33.8 On-Axis Angled 95* Across the Road

TXCTG - Mt Calm Ka 33.8 Results (Table by Rank) 03-26-2017.jpg

TXCTG - Mt Calm Ka 33.8 Results (Graph by Rank) 03-26-2017.jpg

Ka 33.8 Commentary

  • Again, we tested only tested the R3 and Redline on 33.8. We stuck with the 95 degrees across the road that we used with 34.7 and 35.5.
  • Once again, the R3 blew the Redline out of the water. The R3 was getting a mile and a half to a bit over one and three quarter miles. The Redline was alerting at a tenth of a mile to no alert at all.
  • OK, this was getting ridiculous.

TEST NUMBER 2 – OGLESBY COURSE 04-09-2017

INTRO

So after the Mt Calm testing results, we decided it was time to try another course. For our next testing, we chose an old standby, the Oglesby Course on Highway US 84. This test was R3 vs. Redline only.

THE DETECTORS


Uniden R3 (thanks, Uniden!)
Escort Redline - (Jag42)

THE COURSE

Here’s a Google Maps overhead view of the course. We did quite a bit of testing from the usual radar source placement, and got course/terrain limited results that didn’t really show a lot of separation. So we decided to set up at an old gas station on the course, and angle the radars across the road.

TXCTG - K Band Testing (Ranked Graph) Oglesby 4-9-2017.jpg

K-band Commentary


  • Again the results show that the R3 in Hwy mode is extremely sensitive on K-band.
  • The R3 was alerting pretty much around 1 mile. The Redline could only manage a half mile or a little more.
  • We did do one run of the R3 in City mode, as we were interested in measuring the amount City mode cuts down on K-band sensitivity.

Ka 34.7 On-Axis Angled 45* Across the Road

TXCTG - Ka 34.7 Testing (Ranked Chart) Oglesby 4-9-2017.jpg

Ka 34.7 Commentary


  • The results on 34.7 were a bit mixed.
  • The R3 got a couple of nice alerts around 1 mile. But a couple more were only a bit more than half a mile. The Redline could only manage a little more than half a mile on all its runs

Ka 35.5 On-Axis Angled 45* and Angled 35*Across the Road

TXCTG - Ka 35.5 35 Degree Testing (Ranked Graph) Oglesby 4-9-2017.jpg

Ka 35.5 Commentary


  • After the 34.7 results, we thought angling the 35.5 radar gun at 45 degrees would get some separation, but that turned out not to be the case. So we decided to try angling the 35.5 radar gun a bit less to see what would happen.
  • With the radar gun angled at 35 degrees, we got some separation. The R3 was alerting between three quarters of a mile and .9 mile. The Redline was between half a mile and .7 mile.

Ka 33.8 On-Axis Angled 35*Across the Road

Ka 33.8 Commentary


  • With the radar gun angled at 35 degrees, we got some separation. The R3 was alerting around 1.1 miles. The Redline had a couple of runs at about half a mile but did manage one 1 mile run.


TEST NUMBER 3 – VAN ALSTYNE COURSE 04-14-2017

INTRO

The next course tested on was one of my old standbys in Van Alstyne, TX. This was just me by myself. I was only able to test K-band and Ka 34.7 this time. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my Redline for this testing (on loan to Vortex). So I used my WB Magnum instead. I also threw my LRD950 into the mix just to compare how the new R3 compares to Uniden’s former top performer.

THE DETECTORS


Uniden R3 (thanks, Uniden!)
Beltronics WB Magnum (BS69)
Uniden LRD950, 1.23 fw (BS69)

THE COURSE

As I mentioned, this is an old standby that I have used in the past when testing by myself. It’s a 3 mile course with some low spots and undulations that can cause some drop outs in detection between defined high points in the course. There used to be some road equipment at the south end of the course that made for a great place to place the radar. Unfortunately, that isn’t there any longer. So I tried using a stand I had with me placed close to the same place. That worked pretty well until the wind blew it over during K-band testing. For the Ka 34.7 testing, I decided to flip the course around, as there is now some road equipment by the side of the road at the crest on the north end of the course. I’m also including a picture of the 34.7 radar placement, because I ended up doing two sets of 34.7 tests (more on that in the 34.7 testing commentary).

TXCTG - Van Alstyne K Band Results Table (Ranked) 04-14-2017.jpg

TXCTG - Van Alstyne K Band Results Graph (Ranked) 04-14-2017.jpg

K-band Commentary


  • The R3 basically maxed out the course on K-band. There is a crest in the course right about 3 miles. Further out than that, the course drops down below the crest and the R3 was not able to get an alert. So the R3 probably had more range left in it, but the course just couldn’t show it.
  • I tested the R3 with TSF on and TSF off. It did affect range, but not by that much.
  • The LRD950 did not alert at the crest, but did alert about a quarter mile closer to the radar. I think I was seeing the true max of its range.
  • I did do three runs of the R3 in City mode, as again, I was interested in measuring the amount City mode cuts down on K-band sensitivity. It actually cuts it by quite a bit.
  • I was going to get some runs in with my WB Magnum, but my radar stand fell over in the wind on the Magnum’s first run, and I got no alert at all. I decided I was running short on time and wanted to make sure I got the 34.7 testing in. So I skipped testing the Magnum on K-band (sorry).

Ka 34.7 Commentary


  • I tested the R3 with Ka Filter off and with it on. Ka filter appears to affect Ka range a little, but not too much.
  • As I mentioned above, I did testing with the radar in two different positions. I started with the radar positioned fairly high on the road grader I was using as a stand. As you can see from the results with the radar source high, everything was pretty much maxing out the course.
  • So for what I thought was going to be kicks and grins, I decided to place the radar down low on the road grader’s suspension. I expected the range of everything to be killed with the gun that low. But I was in for a surprise.
  • The low positioning barely affected the R3. It didn’t alert quite where it had before, so there definitely was an effect, but it alerted just a little further down the course than it had with the gun in the high position. I tried stewing testing it at a point a bit further out than the 3 mile mark, but it couldn’t acquire the signal. So I knew the alert it was getting wasn’t limited by terrain, but was really the limits of its range.
  • The low positioning had a huge effect on both the Magnum and the LRD950. While the course did have some dips and low stretches where the signal would be lost by blockage, there were four high points (at 2.9 miles, 2.1 miles, 1.6 miles, and 1 mile) between the course start and the radar source where the Magnum and LRD950 should have had a chance. The LRD950 caught it once, at the 1.6 mile high point. The Magnum never did.


TEST NUMBER 4 – RICHARDSON SPEED SIGN COURSE 04-14-2017

INTRO

The next test was a K-band speed sign in Richardson, TX. This is another course I have used in the past. I wanted to do a bit more K-band testing mainly to see how much City mode affects detection distances. But also to test the R3 against the Max360, which is known to be pretty sensitive on K-band.

THE DETECTORS


Uniden R3 (thanks, Uniden!)
Escort Max 360 (BS69)
Uniden LRD950, 1.23 fw (BS69)

THE COURSE

As I mentioned, this is another course that I have used in the past when testing by myself. It’s a 2.5 mile course on a fairly busy, divided city street with three lanes in each direction. I was testing on a Sunday afternoon/early evening, so the traffic was fairly light for this road. It’s fairly flat for the first two miles, and then goes up a fairly gentle slope for a quarter of a mile until it flattens out again for the last quarter mile.

K-band Commentary


  • R3 in Hwy mode is just a beast on K-band. Every. Time. We. Test. It.
  • The Max 360 pretty much got left in the dust. It did manage to have one run where it got a brief alert out in R3 land, but then lost the signal and didn’t get it back until nearly a mile down the road.
  • I tossed in one run of the LRD950 just for comparison. It was pretty similar to the Max 360.
  • City mode on the R3 cut the detection distance considerably (again). Down to around three quarters of a mile.

TEST NUMBER 5 – PIONEER PARKWAY COURSE 04-23-2017

INTRO

Our most recent testing was just completed a little over a week ago. For this final pre-announcement testing, Jag42 and I went back to an old favorite, the Waco Pioneer Parkway course. We know that as long as the Sheriff doesn’t show up, we can get in a large volume of testing in a reasonable time. The Sheriff didn’t show this time until we were almost done…lol. For this testing, we actually had two R3 units to test (thanks again, Uniden!!). It was time to see if there was any variance between units. We also had my recently acquired X-band radar gun, so we could add X-band testing to the usual mix of Ka and K!

THE DETECTORS (not all detectors were tested on all bands)

Uniden R3 #1 (thanks, Uniden!)
Uniden R3 #2 (thinks, Uniden!)
Escort Redline (Jag42)
Escort Max 360 (BS69)
Radenso Pro SE (Jag42)
Radenso XP (BS69)
Uniden DFR6 (Jag42)
Valentine 1 (BS69)

THE COURSE

As I mentioned above, the Pioneer Parkway course is an old favorite because we know we can rip through a lot of testing in a single day and be very productive.

K-band Commentary


  • Again, the R3 is leading the field. Redline did sneak one early whiff in, but the R3 is just consistently long.
  • We did throw a few other detectors into the mix for this. It was the first test we did, and you always think you have plenty of time to do everything when you first start out a test day…lol.
  • Didn’t test K in City mode on the R3 this time. Actually forgot about it completely (oops).

Ka 33.8 On-Axis

TXCTG - Pioneer Pkwy Ka 33.8 Results Graph (By Rank) 04-23-2017.jpg

Ka 33.8 Commentary


  • The 33.8 testing was a little strange. Normally on 33.8 we are maxing out the course. This almost seemed like low powered 33.8. We thought the vegetation had gotten so thick that all the Ka bands were going to have problems. But that was not to be the case. The only thing I can think might have caused this is that for time and ease of testing reasons, we used the MPH X-band counting unit with my 33.8 antenna (we actually did the X-band, K-band and 33.8 testing with the X-band counting unit).
  • Again, the R3 is leading the field, with most detections nearly twice the distance of the other detectors.
  • The Redline’s best run did manage to basically tie the R3’s worst, but still it was pretty soundly beaten.
  • We threw in a Max 360 because it has done pretty well on 33.8 in past testing. Wasn’t even close in this testing.
  • We also threw in the DFR6 because of its reputation for being weak on 33.8. It just shows how big a step up the R3 really is for Uniden.

TXCTG - Pioneer Pkwy Ka 34.7 Results Graph (By Rank) 04-23-2017.jpg

Ka 34.7 Commentary


  • I mentioned that 33.8 testing made us think maybe the vegetation had gotten too thick for Ka testing. 34.7 showed us how wrong that was. Straight on, the R3 and Redline were both maxing out the course. So we tried angling the radar about 30-35 degrees off to the right across the field and away from the road. That killed the alert distance for everything down to about a half a mile, and we really didn’t have any separation between the R3 and Redline. So we tried angling the 34.7 gun across the road at about 30-35 degrees, and the detection distance went way back up. Still no separation. Finally, we angled the gun way left at a sign that was probably no more than 200 yards from the radar. You can see it on the left hand side of the picture above from behind the radar. That got us the separation we needed.
  • I know I sound like a broken record, but again the R3 is leading the field, including the Redline.

Ka 35.5 On-Axis

TXCTG - Pioneer Pkwy Ka 35.5 Results Graph (By Rank) 04-23-2017.jpg

Ka 35.5 Commentary


  • We went back to pretty much straight down the road for 35.5, trusting that the vegetation would cut the signal enough to get some separation.
  • It is really strange to see the Redline getting beaten on 35.5, but the R3 just does. I really don’t know what else to say.
  • We threw in a RPSE and DFR6 just for some variety, and again, to show how much of a step up the R3 is compared to Uniden’s current top end (soon to be their mid-tier) detectors.

X-band On-Axis

TXCTG - Pioneer Pkwy X Band Results Chart (By Rank) 04-23-2017.jpg

TXCTG - Pioneer Pkwy X Band Results Graph (By Rank) 04-23-2017.jpg

X-band Commentary


  • Since I recently acquired an X-band radar gun, we knew we had to do some X-band testing. And on more than just the R3 and Redline.
  • So, I can finally stop sounding like a broken record. The R3 is not the King of the X-band World. In fact, it’s not really even the queen or the prince. Its X-band performance is little better than the DFR7/6; which is to say it’s fairly poor. To be fair, Uniden has said it can be improved, but they are concerned about falses. We have been talking to them about making some “expert settings” available in the menu to allow advanced users like us to tweak the sensitivity of X and K bands. It won’t be there at launch, but hopefully will be in a fw update in the future.
  • As might be expected, the V1 and Redline (with their X-band LNAs) lead the field, with a pretty respectable showing by the Max 360.
  • The R3, DFR6, and Radenso XP all did about the same as each other. This sort of range was not unexpected for the DFR6 and XP.
  • What was a bit unexpected to me was how poorly the RPSE did. You would most likely see a cop running X-band with your eyes before you’d hear an alert from Jag42’s RPSE. I’m not sure whether this is representative or not. Probably could stand some more testing in the future.



FINAL THOUGHTS

Again, first and foremost, Jag42 and I (and I know all the other members who have been involved) would really like to thank Uniden for letting us be a part of this pre-release testing and feedback!!! It’s been really fun and exciting, especially now that we get to post about our testing results.

Uniden’s new R3 and R1 detectors truly are impressive. Their sensitivity really is better in the real world than a Redline. Does that mean it’s going to alert sooner than a Redline every time? Of course not. That obviously depends on the conditions you are driving in. As you can see from some of my comments above, sometimes we had to work at getting separation between the R3 and the Redline. But I can say this: It has equaled or bettered the Redline every time we’ve tested it (with the exception of X-Band). And sometimes it’s a lot better. I will say that it picks up LEOs that are off the highway on side streets in the city really well. Maybe too well…lol.

But it’s not perfect. The BSM filtering is still being tweaked. I’m not sure that there’s really any difference in what cars it can or can’t filter out compared to a DFR7 (e.g., I think the same cars give it problems, but Uniden has never said), but it is so sensitive on K-band in Hwy mode that you can even get brief BSMs from cars passing the other way on the other side of the highway. And it seems like you can get BSMs from some cars a half mile ahead of you if the conditions are right (or wrong, depending on your point of view). But it’s certainly better at filtering than any M3s are.

One current solution is to run it in City mode, even on the highway. It’s actually pretty quiet even in heavy traffic if you do that. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do a fair bit of testing it against K-band in City mode. So we’d have some idea of how much K-band protection you can expect if you run it in City even when you are on the highway. I’d personally like the ability to decide how much K-band sensitivity I want, as I think in City mode, it’s a little less sensitive than I’d like for driving on the highway. But Uniden may give us the ability to adjust that in the future.

So I can’t really end this with my usual admonishment. This is more than just one test. This unit has been tested multiple times by several members. We have seen consistent results in numerous tests. Through these TXCTG results and the results posted by other members, you are getting to look at various tests, by various people, at various times, on various courses to get to a relatively complete picture of the R3. And it’s a very good picture indeed!

[HR][/HR]
Edit to add a few real world videos:

First, with great sensitivity comes some hard lessons. Like you aren't always going to see the LEO. Here a is three minute alert where I never saw the LEO(s). It has happened not infrequently.


Here's a video where I finally said, I"m going to go find the darn LEO. Turns out there was two of them. Just took me 20 minutes (condensed to <2) to find them...lol


And here is a really nice 35.5 alert I got going to our last testing. 4.25 miles.


Here's another nice 34.7 detection coming home from testing one night. 2.3 miles and off-axis. Notice how the headlights of the traffic in the distance show that the highway curves off to the left. Also got lasered in the last part of the video (1:51 in the video). The LEO (on right at 2:01 in the video) was apparently using radar to determine when to shot his laser at oncoming speeders to pick out the right car.

Almost fainted when I saw redline at 50%...then I saw the 18% :eek:

But thanks for all your hard work testing!

Great testing. I am sure there is just information overload right now. Hopefully individual testing gets the time it deserves when everyone settles down.

I feel suckered on the XP I just bought off you :p

Just kidding. Still a great detector for its purpose. In the words of Vortex, horses for courses.

I guess my two magnums are the ones that might be "going out to pasture."

Thanks for all the testing. Amazing amount of time you put in! Much appreciated!

The CRAZY ability of this machine to reach out on K band scares me. I just cant understand how with this much sensitivity to K how it could be good to use in town with heavy traffic. I mean if I read it right your reaching out over a mile on K over the others. Would not BSM falsing not be out of control with this type of range?

Am I missing something?

That's why there is a "city mode" ;)

That's why there is a "city mode" ;)
So do you run city mode on the highway to? With this kinda range even in city mode you will be picking up BSM from the oncoming lanes of a 4 lane highway, correct?

You are a good sport [MENTION=323]PointerCone[/MENTION]. Think of it this way, the Redline had a good decade long run without any upgrades or enhancements. What other detector can say that?

Thorough testing [MENTION=9768]Brainstorm69[/MENTION] and [MENTION=201]Jag42[/MENTION]. Thanks for throwing a V1 in there and making my decision more difficult between adding the R3 (for a tip of the KA spear) or a Redline International (for long range KA *and* the Gatso units around here).
