I am a 55 year old detector junkie :) I own the M and yes it's a great unit for me but I like variety and no one detector can do it all. The R7 has K block which would be a big help for the R3-R1 owners. For me to drive in city mode is like being fed to the lions on a platter :)
Confession: I miss my R3 and have some regret getting the R7 (mostly extra $ for minimal protection). R3 with K block would be awesome and I would have one again no regrets.
R7 has me wanting to tinfoil the rear antenna, as that contributes to a doubling of falses and lockout use.
If you can't live with a R3 then hard pass on a R7.
R7 for RD addicts only.

I run in highway mode, constantly with (a majority) of segments open, need X band on because I live in NJ. I don't get nearly as many false alerts as I used to with my R3, but I have K block on as well. Kinda risky sometimes but there is no perfect detector.

@Kennyc56 just ran out and pulled this off my dash cam from last night. C/O 24.124 from the LEO on the right. It was rear facing too. I saw him before the alert happened, on top of the Waze alert that I got well before the R3 sniffed him out. I don't think this is even that challenging for terrain compared to what I usually see. It's a Decatur gun.

1.37
Advanced
K Band 50%
K Filtern ON
TSF ON

had a very similar alert to this with verified C/O K-band (speed sign on side of the road) with my R7 the other day.

I had just switched out the R3 for the R7. i have driven past this sign for months on my commute, i know exactly where it typically alerted on the R3 , and the R7 was very short notice, no ramp up.

this was straight away wide open terrain on a parkway (no trucks). i will do some more testing with the distances over my next few commutes.

R7 was running 40% K , R3 50% K, both had TSF, k narrow and filter on.
