Mike will still have those people who buy V1's, based on word of mouth of other uninformed people, or people who upgrade their current V1 because they love opening an app to have a decent radar detector.
You should try a V1 one day. You might like it.

I am attending a conference in Romania and not able to keep up with all the pages.

Did anyone upthread ask if the micro USB could be changed to USB-C? That is all have now for my iPad Pro3 and my G05.

Relax, it comes with a cable in the box, now. You’re all good :)

I'm sorry, is this the Uniden R7 thread, or the trash talking about V1 thread?

Well, you've been hit by at it for a long time. We expected it, but not this soon. I was figuring a spring reveal with early summer sales, similar to R3.

Who's trashing the V1? Comparisons are inevitable because of the arrows. Don't confuse healthy competition with denigration.

I am confident they will drastically improve the BSM filtering, and then this unit will be almost perfect. Open Api would be nice but I think that is a tougher corporate decision for Uniden to open up access.
Previous post:

Some are too close that its risky to try to ignore. GM is probably the biggest culprit. I don't think anyone has found a way to ignore all GM systems without too much of a risk. Some of the earlier systems have been easy but many of the latest ones are more difficult.

***I know Uniden is arranging for the engineers to come out to the US next year to really spend a lot of time around these systems to figure something out.***

Just to check, denigration: from the word denigrate:
  1. to speak damagingly of; criticize in a derogatory manner; sully; defame:
  2. to treat or represent as lacking in value or importance; belittle; disparage:

I might pick one up after the V7 (sic R7) s released. Should be able to pick up a nice used one for about $50.
Healthy competition in my mind would be based on fact, measurements. My mistake. I was looking for information/thoughts on the Uniden R7.

The more varied the selection, the more varied the trash-talk. “Careful what you wish for”, as the saying goes. Lack of variety stunts progress.

I noticed that but I will not have micro USB with me on long driving trips, but certainly will have USB-C which is used all over my car.

Ok, I don’t know why you’d need one with you in the car, but I guess take it with you? MicroUSB is still by far the most common connection out there, from Bluetooth earbuds to wireless chargers to portable battery packs, etc. I’m sure you have at least a few lying around, and worst case scenario you can pick one up for cheap at most gas stations in case you need it for some reason.

Mute and Mark buttons on the side = Hassle
There’s plenty of room under the display for those buttons, hopefully Uniden will reconsider their location.
Plenty of hassle for the RHD market (yes, I know the prime market is NA).

Hope the mute memory is replicated on the power adapter as per R3, but with auto lockouts pronmised, it shouldn;t eventually be an issue :)

Ok, disparagement then.

No one is disparaging the V1. It's a healthy comparison. Now , if you believe the current V1 will perform better than an R1/3, then I suggest you research the various tests performed the past 2 years. The R1/3 have been the best performing WS mounts ever tested, bar none. Fact is, V1 was a great unit now well past its prime. The R7 will be evaluated & tested like the rest. With vim and vigor.

I am all for competition improving the breed. Just don't have a whole lot of confidence in ER or VR anymore. Hey Mike, the patent clock is running, tick tock.
