Post the state you are in and how you have it setup. Please also post FW version.

Mine comes in on Tuesday. I'll post mine then. :)

I went to BB and got another unit as well and the new one has FW:121.121.111
I was not happy with the first units performance on 33.8 and 34.7. 35.5 and K band it was a beast but that’s about it.

Might want to think about adding X-band, depending on location.

I’m in NorCal, mine is also arriving today. I will run the R7 the same as my R3. I leave K on and very filtered.

K on
K narrow
City Mode (does not affect KA)
K filter on
TSF on
Quiet ride 45 MPH (does not affect KA)

With the above being said, many simply turn off K in CA. It is practically extinct. There are reports that it is still used by Huntington Beach PD and a couple of other cities in SoCal. CHP is all KA 34.7 or laser.

As for KA. I just run KA Narrow. If you want to segment it more you can go with 5 & 8.

I just pick up the R7 from bestbuy with
FW: 120.121.110 version

But i see here people running
FW:121.121.111 wich i believe is a newer FW.

Does that mean I could download and upgrade the FW?
