From personal experience I would recommend the DFR7. In my opinion the GPS features which are Quiet Ride and manual lockouts will serve to quiet it down making it "wife friendly." Posted a review of my findings here:
That's how I sold my wife on a RD. I drove her R3 around for a while locking out known sources, and then installed it in her car. Probably the only way that thing, and the rear-view mirror didn't end up on the side of the road.It would help alot if you initially drove her normal route and lockout any K Band falses from speed signs, automatic door openers, etc... before placing it in her ride.
I know I recommended the Pro M, but auto lockouts are a huge bonus for wifey factor.Other members have posted good things about the Max series after the recent IVT update, plus you'd have autolockouts. If you can find one for a good price, it seems like a solid option.
It locks out the alert after you drive by a couple times.All things considered I’d buy a proM and be done but budget is half that. It’s a great suggestion to pre drive a couple of routes with it to lock out most of what would come. The K threat she’d see is typically full constant so at least there is that. Is the max 360 a lock everything out then opt back in or does it wait for you to drive the same route a couple of times?
We have a Manufacture Refurbished LRD950 (same as DFR7) for $140 available
I don't know..you can buy one in Japan I think...I think you have to google WIFU but some of them are more broken than the actual human ones....thus I would not recommend it.
I’ve seen those Japanese units holy smokes those are some advanced units but I may lose one myself in retribution!I don't know..you can buy one in Japan I think...I think you have to google WIFU but some of them are more broken than the actual human ones....thus I would not recommend it.
My wife likes the R3 and she loved the DFR7....no experience with RPM but I heard it's good.
I’m looking now that is a deal!Agreed for your price point and "wifey" factor the DFR7 will TOTALLY kick some major @ss !!
My GF loved hers !! Replaced with a ProM though when I could afford it.
and chake 's got one for $140 !! That's a deal !!
