You would think, but it took them a pretty long while to release the BM for the R1 / R3 after they were released.Why would they stall it? They're selling a piece of metal for ~$140, do you think they're going to miss out on all the new suckers that the R7 is going to generate?
You don't buy a whole new BM for a new detector, if you already have a BM you just buy the clip that holds the detector to the BM which is $30.Why would they stall it?

Vortex any word on when you might actually have a unit from Uniden?Yeah I'm hoping we can simply use the DFR7 mount, or ideally the R3 mount and call it a day.
Once I get an R7 in hand, I'll check with the DFR7 and R3 mounts to see which ones fit and to what degree. I'll also let BM know so that in case they need to make any changes on their end (which I doubt), they can get ready so that they can hopefully be ready by the time the R7 is launched.
I couldn't justify the cost of a blendmount for my r3... Went with a permanent windshield mount w/ 3m tape off eBay for like $8, and couldn't be happier. It's rock solid and doesn't wiggle at all. Went under the mirror due to a lack of space above and still wanting my visors, but looks great without all that mount hardware hanging down.
The piece on the end that attaches to the detector is changeable and much less than the price of the entire mount..... That being said I think that blend mounts are way overpriced. I don't think they are very much over price for a manufacturing standpoint since they are high quality but they are way over kill. There are a lot of simple and cheap solutions.Aren’t the blendmounts about $100? ; while they are cool, when you get one, you’re sorta “married” to your detector as they’re not interchangeable with other brands.
