@BestRadarDetectors and the developers of the upcoming Uniden R7 RD:

After reading through the forums a bit, it seems like what may hold some V1 users and some other users back from purchasing a R7 (or any other dual horn RD with arrows) is lack of 3rd party app support, even if the the R7 beats a V1, Max 360 (and all other detectors) in both range and false alert suppression.

If it is not being done already, Id like to make the request to allow 3rd party app support with the R7

You are not alone in this quest champion.
I'm here also to request a price drop. Because 600 just for arrows is a bit too steep... "/

Your getting more then "just arrows" so thats not being accurate. Bottom line, ya don't like the price then buy an outdated V1 or a freezing up 360. If sales tank on tne R7 then you will be proven corret, if sales blow the roof off then Uniden got it right.

I hope Uniden stays completely away from 3rd party apps. I understand the V1 guys love them, but leave that stuff with VR. Those of us that want arrows without using a phone app, like the direction Uniden is going, with everything under the hood. That way, there are choices.

Thankfully it's very easy not to use an app and nobody will put a gun to your head if you want to stay in the dark ages.

I'll even conduct a class for those of you who want to learn how not to install an app.

The best app for the V1 wasn't even developed by Valentine Research so don't know how anyone could object to that conceptually. It just doesn't make sense.

The App doesn’t affect how the R7 would act stand-alone. The ability to “access” the R7s API and use an App only if one wishes to would be a great thing. Nobody is asking that the R7 has to have an App to work.

Once most people have used a V1 with JBV1, they know what a synced App can add counter measures wise, the CSAs and the ability to increase Quiet Ride is what the API request is all about. Why do you think Escort is bringing back there App vastly improved and linked?

X10000. I need a RD that has great range, arrows and great filtering. I don’t need an app.

No need to get snappy with me @Tallyho. I'm allowed to share my opinions just like anyone else.

Like I stated before, the V1 guys seem to be perfectly happy with the way things are currently. I'm glad for y'all. I really am. But, why try to force stuff most of us don't want? In fact some of the V1 guys have complained that the R7 will have too much range. I honestly don't understand the unhappiness with the upcoming Uniden if y'all already have EXACTLY what you want in the V1.

It is not a “need”, it is a game changer that adds options, CSAs tried to the RD and where one is at (not just a flood of information but information one can use IE “Saves”), and Taylor and increase ones Quiet Ride based off how one drives!

Go look at JBV1 section of the Forum to see what and how an App can improve things.

What going on around here lately? People don't want good information and are crapping all over people who do. :confused:

That is fine, then by all means don’t use an App. But please at the same time don’t interfere with those that know what an App like JBV1 could do with a R7. JBV1 being able to work seamlessly with an R7 would dominate the RD market plus being able to work with an App doesn’t change one bit how the R7 would work if it didn’t have the ability to use an App IE it is NOT a negetive if the R7 had an open API.

Unfortunately if the R3 is any indication, Uniden doesn’t have BSM filtering figured out yet and adding an additional antenna isn’t going to help that one bit, it will be worse plus add in it’s excess sensitivity and one has a real problem. Firmware alone does not make for great BSM filtering, it takes proper hardware first linked with outstanding firmware.

Information is fine. Opinions are fine. I haven't "crapped" on anyone. Your opinion is you want the R7 to be able to use apps like the V1 does. I respect your opinion. My opinion is it shouldn't use apps. With that, you said I am living in the dark ages. Not cool to insult because our opinions aren't the same.

We are arguing about something that will never happen so this is all just for hypothetical purposes.

What is the issue with an optional, supplementary, completely 100% voluntary app or even providing the API for a 3rd party app?

I guess mainly most people don't want it. Also, with it being tentatively priced at $599, we certainly don't want to add anymore cost to it.

It's great that some see the value and want the apps. But, most don't. It's already set up with the V1, and from what I see, it makes those users very happy. If most don't want it on the R7, why does that bother you so? You already have what you really like and want in the V1.

I didn't request it and don't think Uniden has it in them.

But as an RDF member I'm always interested in people being more educated rather than less and having more options available rather than fewer. It's rather stunning that this philosophy isn't shared universally.

Sorry, how did you measure that most people don’t want to have this option? Did you ask everyone here, created a thread with poll, or just made it up?
