I will buy this so how soon must I sell my R3 before its market value is gone?

Yeah it’s not quite set in stone yet, but March/April’ish.
Cool! I’m hoping to sell some stuff so I get on the pre-order. Missed my chance with the R1/3, NOT AGAIN!!

And if things are as in the past, the early units are HOT.

Is the Q-Ride (shows in upper right in video) equivalent to Savvy? Quiet ride under xx MPH?

@Vortex can you comment on this: "The R7 will ship with manual lockouts like the R3 at launch, and autolockouts will be added in the first firmware update."

Will the first firmware update be delayed until the Escort autolockout patent expires in June, or is there some other reason for the delay?

Will the R3 be updated to get auto lockouts?

Welp now that everyone else is going to be trying to sell their R's (mine has been for sale in the Classifieds for a week), I'll probably be keeping it rather than take a hit.

(off topic: Can they blatantly copy Mike's design?)

Uniden product planning meeting:
"Well I guess we call this an R5, right?"
"No way man. This is too epic. We're bringing this up to 7!"

The little things that give us joy !
What a time to be alive (in our little niche world) !

:happyanim:

Wow just wow

I can’t believe they are already talking about future firmware updates for something that isn’t released yet. I see a few reasons for that, but it is sweet hearing about the upcoming features.

How is that programing menu going to look ? Oh my !

Ok, how many V1 arrow holdouts will be coming over to Uniden now ?

Not sure how well that button placement will work, but I can deal with that.

Ha Ha ! I'm on BRD's pre order list !

These Uniden threads are going to be on Fire for quite some time...............

Any word on a companion app? It’s the only way I see running the unit completely dark with arrows. Other than that, sounds promising.

That's one big chunky looking slab of plastic! Hopefully the production units will be a bit more refined.

Features sure sound like a winner on paper though!

How severe is that driver focused angle? It might be pretty awkward to press those side buttons if the angle is too much.

Where do I preorder?

Do they take organs or limbs as payments?

I hope all the other manufactures have something up their sleeves as well if they plan on selling anything this year lol
