Not sure this is an issue by definition of the thread (it is a problem for me) so mods do as you need. This may be a 'feature request'.

When I power off the detector and lock the car, detector stays off until my car applies power to the 12v socket (at random, and definitely when I unlock the car). It would be helpful if the unit would ignore that and stay powered off until I physically turn it back on. I come back to the vehicle to a nearly dead battery constantly.

Luckily I drive a stick and I can jump the car. This will be a bigger issue when it gets colder again, both because the battery will be weaker and also because I am not looking forward to pushing my car around a frozen parkinglot.

That's a new one on me. Haven't heard of random power to the socket.
I would recommend a hard wire install.

The power on the plug cycles with the doors unlocking, for sure. It also appears to cycle at random, because I constantly find my detector turned on (very east to see at night).

As I define this better I think I am asking for a feature; set the power restore action. For example your computer can be told to stay off or turn itself on when power is provided. Last state, power on, stay off, wait a minute then turn on, etc.

Yep, feature request...sorry about that. Mods can blow away my posts if this is hogging up this thread.

Feature Request: Create an option where you can reverse the R7's display and arrows so you can read the display in the rearview mirror when the detector is mounted on the rear windshield and then the rear antenna arrow would be the front antenna since the detector is facing out the rear. Some type of mirror view option.
