Thanks - I have my $129 BuyDig DFR7 here now as a test candidate when you work out the kinks :)

It also has the 1.12 firmware pre-installed.

I have some previous downloads from BluLink from a year or so back, so will check what I have.

I cannot find this firmware on the Uniden US site. Does anyone have copies of this US firmware? I would like to use this as my recovery position but also to test against NZ mobile redflex cameras.
Check this out ;


Looks like 1.12 was originally posted, but as it is functionally identical, only 1.10e is now posted

I don't have any DFR7NZ firmware older than currently posted on BluLink

In the early 950 FW you could change the sub. There were 3 or 4 subs. Maybe if you take it back and bring it up that will make a difference? But, the drivers were constantly being updated which might further complicate the issue.
I’ll see what U.S. FW I have on my HD. Folder marked oct 2017

At this time, I'm not going to release my non-encrpyted gps database (currently V2.12 is in testing). However, I can provide the NZA gps database version 1.37 in the US format which can be uploaded directly onto the DFR7 using the US database upload tool without issue (send me a PM if interested). Alternatively, if people want to run my latest NZ or AU database on a US DFR7, I'd be happy to install it if you want to send your hardware to me for an update.

I drove between Hamilton and Auckland today...with my US firmware DFR7.
The spec's list it's K band range from 24.050Ghz to 24.250Ghz....

Interestingly I detected a redflex speed camera on 24.040Ghz, and I also detected a 'speed display sign' on 24.280Ghz, both in theory outside of it's range.

You, know, I wouldn't at all be surprised if Uniden had added it into the firmware and forgot to mention it. I'd be kind of happy if you got full K band coverage, and kind of annoyed I spent so much time trying to get the same thing. Keep testing, and please report your findings.

I'll also test my second DFR7 against mobile redflex here when it arrives. This would be a good test as I can run and compare against both the R3 and R7. We know the R3 is not picking any of the mobile redflex vans around Wellington, so if the DFR7 is different it suggests it does come with the wider K band already installed.

Keep up the good work fellaz. I drop in and have a suss on this thread occasionally. Redflex is what I'm looking at in a detector and have come close to pulling the trigger many times and backed off over the past 2 years. Lucky for me tho, Redflex NK7 drops later this year, so I doubt anything will nail that, but if I'm going to blow some dollars on something that's outdated quickly, this is probably it, and the evolution loss is more minimal. Wouldn't mind snapping up this cheapy and have it do the job, but I'll see how the game changes later in the year while you guys keep hacking.
Does NZ have the NK7 yet or any news of its arrival there? Lately have been looking at Genevo, as it's the only detector with a video in action and actively having a crack at some of the new gen cams. Detectors might take a while to catch on to this new cam arriving, which sorta sucks at the moment.
I'm exhausted reading this forum to be honest, as it keeps putting me in 2minds about things, and leaves me undecided alot lately haha, but I keep plodding on researching in meantime. This is a thread of persistence :) and I can relate to that tho. Keep at it ya legends!

Good. This is even more interesting then haha!
Do they post the mobile cam locations up for the public over there?
We get told roughly where they are, down to the area and street name, but not what time of day they will be there. This is great for testing! Haha

Do we know if there is an NZA voice package? This seems to be the only NZA file I don't have.

Also does anyone have an NZA DFR7? I would like to check and compare some of its details and specifications (including its voice package). I would also like them to run some tests to confirm a few things I still don't have answers to (don't worry this wouldn't involve uploading anything!).
