Ain't nobody got time for thatSituational Awareness is only foreign to them because they've never experienced it; It's not their fault, they're blind to the extra dimension, so it's very easy to disregard the value since they truly don't understand it.
It's like trying to explain the 4th dimension to an average person.
As long as it's not metallic tint the rear horn won't be affected.Ive often wondered , they say dont put your rd up in that blue tint at the top of the windshield , or if u have it tinted up there , why ? So lets see a rear horn looks out a rear tinted glass !!! Hmm how good is it really , mayb good im not sure ive never used 1 ive never had a need i drive forward i can tell a rear signal is a leo runing up my ass and i can tell when it happens with no rear horn !! Ill ck off any detector with a rear horn , i havent had a problem yet to need arrows i understand a threat and the ramp up !! I do enjoy stirring the pot and smoking it , to each there own , enjoy those training wheels ;-)
Many times, its been amazing... Actually, @Buz made a good point about driving at night, especially. Along with some other members that added something of value..He doesn’t need to. He swears this one time he got a 5+ mile 35.5 detection from the rear through trees and curves and uphill both ways in the snow. No holes in that hubris.
No I havent. what were my options a v1, 360, both out of my price range.
Good point, I would like an R7 now.. That would be a real nice feature. Just imagined it..It gives you confidence when to gas it or drop the hammer. ... I don't know how many instances where I've been driving with the R1 not knowing I've already passed the LEO and been stuck at 55 or 70ish.
Sold both of my R's (1&3) almost immediately after I read about the R7. They still have good resale value now and it's not like they are "old" models since they really haven't been out for that long. I had been using my R-O (bought in 2010 and later updated for band segmentation) the last month or so anyway. I only have one car so I don't have a good reason to have 3 detectors, much less 4. I do want the arrows though and where I do most of my driving extra sensitivity is another plus as the terrain here is such that alerts a half mile and sometimes much less are more the norm.Got 3 of the R3s to Dump after the R7s come online, Was on Flebay last night looks like I'm not only one dumping their R3, Thoughts are we only have a short time frame before prcies drop on the used market for the R3
Yes this is Uniden’s first RD with arrows but the R series release was flawless so dont really see how this would be any different, guess you are suggesting maybe the arrows are lagging etc?I would pay $600usd for the r7 because it pretty much the ultimate standalone detector. However, I’m not confident witb unidens ability to release a nice smooth arrow detector since they have no experience with it. So I have to wait on the sidelines to see how it pans out.
In that time frame. Other manufacturers with dual horn experience could come out with something and tip the scale back into their favor and convince me to open my wallet.
They'll likely drop the line of detectors. Uniden can survive without that business.Vortex just posted a video about Uniden. Supposedly there is only one person named Kooney out of the entire company that worked on detectors. Well now he's leaving to join Radenso. That makes me wonder if the R7 will be future proof. They will be looking for a replacement but who knows if a new person will be as good as him.
I don’t think so at all. Sure Kuni is no longer there, but I think they’ll find someone to replace him and continue on the same path. I think there may be some changes to the timing of updates, the priority of what gets tweaked, and perhaps communication with the community, but maybe not. Time will tell.They'll likely drop the line of detectors. Uniden can survive without that business.
