Hi everyone!

Came across this site after falling into the blackhole that is Youtube and finding @Vortex video(s) on the Uniden R3. I had previously owned a couple Escort Passports (8500 and 9500, I think) and was looking for a new RD after a couple close calls with speedtraps. So after stalking this forum for a couple weeks, I finally joined 1 or 2 weeks ago, and am now finally making my hellos. Reading over the forums, I became more and more intrigued with getting a laser jammer to complement the R3. I was leaning towards the ALP due to its positive history, but I was fortunate to see the post about the limited release of the new TMG system on the forum and decided to jump on board. I ordered the quad system and it is scheduled to be delivered on Monday! Woohoo! I just got a 2018 Toyota Highlander so I'm still trying to decide how to best install the system. I'm thinking I'll probably install 2 heads in the front and 2 in the back for now but I may end of getting additional heads and cables, once available. I'll post a followup thread in the Suggested Sensor Placement forum soon. Besides the R3, I also use Waze as a CM, and hope to add a front and rear dashcam. Was leaning towards the Blackvue 900S, especially since it allows the option to mirrormount, but I'm going to wait for any new announcements at SEMA.

Anyways, I've found lots of great info here and looking forward to learning more.

Welcome fellow south Floridian :) Nice choice on the R3, it's a big help for sure, FHP/locals use a lot of radar, and the R3 is a great way to keep tabs on that. they also use some lidar, so far no dragoneye near me that I have found, Stalker XLR, Ultralite, Prolite (or maybe a truspeed S) and Laser Atlanta are all I've gotten hit with so far. I have a dual ALP right now and on a SUV with optimal placement I have done fine thus far, the Highlander does have a bigger front profile so the third head up front might be a good idea. I just got a new car and put the ALP dual on that, need to get some testing done to make sure its solid, but it should do well. so far all front shots in my area, but I tossed a single head on the rear just for a little coverage, working my way to a quint as well :)

Watch out for aircraft vascar, they use it around miami a bunch!

As far as dashcam, do some good research, the recent blackview 900 had some issue with overheating in hotter climates (and south florida is definitely hot!)
