If you thought my 1.1 mile R7 City Mode K-band Detection was Impressive....

I did some K-band testing today of the R7 and other detectors. I'll be posting that in the next few days. It takes some time to review all the video to get all the numbers. But I thought I'd post a pretty impressive City mode detection by the R7 as a teaser. :)

Shut up! Hows the BSM falses in city mode? Maybe I should ask how the BSM falses are in Advance mode at the lowest K band setting? How about MRCD detection?

If I can get a mile K detection at the lowest Advance mode setting, I would think it there would be few if any BSM punch throughs.. If that's the case, I'm gonna run out and buy an R7.

That's crazy good for city mode! If it still does good against K band I/O and Q/T, maybe this will satisfy some of the guys complaining about how chatty the R7 is. I love the testing that you do @Brainstorm69! It is always real world and very useful!

Good stuff but I thought the purpose of city mode is to have the range low enough that there won't be as many false alerts. Therefore the r3 having less range in city mode than the r7 makes the r3 better than the r7 in city mode. Lol

I've noticed the R7 is flat out hot on K band. There's a speed sign on a bridge, off axis, that's at 23.980 or so that I was picking up extremely far considering. I may have it on footage from this morning.

Good video and I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks it

Very Impressive. I live in NY where the roads are not flat like that at all.
I wonder how it'll fair up here with more challenging terrains.

Actually, it was course limited. And I somehow forgot to mention that was with K Filter on and TSF on. ;)

And in City mode with K Filter on and TSF on, it has seemed to be pretty quiet in the city so far.

I messed around with some of the advanced settings early on with my R3 but then stuck to City K Wide Filter on TSF Off. I get the occasional BSM when I am coming up on a Honda, Acura, and some Chryslers, but it's pretty easy to distinguish them from a legitimate alert. I have Quiet Ride set to 30 mph or so too. K band encounters are not very common from what I have seen in NE Ohio. But I have had several legitimate saves on K band against moving C/O in City mode. I always get a good laugh at those that get their panties in a bunch over BSM. You have a radar transmitter (BSM) and a radar receiver (detector). What do you expect to happen? lol Without some sort of signature in the transmitted signal to determine the source there isn't much that can be done. BSM doesn't usually ramp up like a legitimate K band threat. If you can't discern the difference you shouldn't be driving with a radar detector, or shouldn't be driving at all. :D

Damn! I had no idea you had K filter and TSF on! That makes it even better! Have you by any chance hit it with some K band Q/T shots on city mode yet? If you have, I must have missed it. That alert keeps looking better all the time!

Excellent video! (Can't wait to see all the results) That's a great teaser, it leaves you wanting to see more comparative results. It's amazing that even in City mode with KF and TSF both turned on it can pull off a detection like that one.

Could this be also due to the Beta FW you are running. I seen a post you are on like 122.xxx.xxx ?? Just asking, may not be related at all.

What are you asking? Could what be related to beta FW? City mode doing well?

Having K filter and TSF on as well, helping with the long Detection. I know City Mode is 18% Sensitivity. Didn't know if the new FW had some different filtering mojo that helped some.

Like I said earlier, might not be related at all. Just curious that's all. And if so related, can't wait until the official First Public Avail FW.
