I got one 33.8 CO a few hundred feet before an overpass, (think + intersection). Basically started at the end of the offramp, held, then faded before the onramp ended, LEO+customer sitting right at onramp entrance. Still being cautious until I know what to expect. Lol, “is it working?” (Yes I know it probably is).

Still very pleased with the quiet aspect, still testing on the range.

Edit: Attached a pic of yesterday's detection. Not sure what I think about that. Thoughts, anyone?

Just got mine (purely stock settings) and it alerts much sooner, very nice! My old RD doesn't really pick up on the BSM, but I did find a few on the freeway this morning. I think maybe chevy or another domestic brand.

Old one did alert to a honda, where the Pro M didn't even care :)

Good stuff Radenso!

Welcome aboard, you made a very fine choice. The filtering on the Pro M is amazing. If the range suits my needs, I will probably keep it until the next gen. Running out of time to make a decision, and the old saying goes 'when it doubt....' (not just refrigerator logic)

Also hope you are not running those side-by-side. Search around about running 2 detectors.

Yup I know about that, but just the M in on wake-up at about 5am, good call.

I cringe when I see these people testing 2+ detectors side by side. My old solo, if I bump the volume, I can make almost any other detector go off (fun stuff while driving!)

Finally got a hit on the move! 35.5 freeway. I was not quite late yet but was a little nervous about running hot since I haven’t had a lot of seat time and practice with the Pro M.

First was a moon beam, dropped from +20 to about +10, then I got a hit and solid latch, dropped to +5, then ramp went rest of the way up, then got eyes on him.

Not too shabby.

I've had this detector for over two months and my only two complaints are inability to change tones to something higher pitched to make it easier to hear AND I'm getting what seem to be Ka falses. Driving on a busy highway here in NH and random full power Ka alerts hit me, then fade away. No LEOs around that I have seen. It repeats several times on the same trip. Other detectors are not doing this with Ka. There are a LOT of cars on the other side of the highway (and not many on my side) so some of these cars could have a device that is triggering it. I am not sure. I have POP off, Ka Narrow, KA filter, TSR full on. Basically any setting that could impact falses. I guess it is possible I am picking up some legitimate LEO Ka somewhere but it hits me at full strength then disappears entirely. It doesn't ramp up at all or have a weak signal. I'll keep driving with it to see what happens.

I seem to be getting a lot of 33.8 hits and nothing in sight. There have been a lot of CO legit 33.8 signals, as I mentioned previously, but definitely something going on with the 33.8 (these are usually the Cobras and satellite dishes, from what I have read) Got one driving through taco hell earlier today, no 5-0 anywhere.. I believe the KA filter is enabled on my unit. These false alerts remind me of BSM, they jump in and ramp up to about 4-6 then they disappear.

And the tones- I realized today I would almost prefer to swap the KA and K band tones.

So another development. My wife drove my car with the R7, she didn't like it at all. Plus she fat fingered the lockout and mute button all morning so I am going to have to start over....

She came home and said "take that other noisy ****er out of my car, I want the small one" (Pro M).

Got my Redline back!! But now I am like... Wait, was this a victory? Now I don't have a Radenso til next gen....

This is exactly what I'm talking about! Thanks for verifying it. It makes me slam on my brakes. My escort detectors don't really get any Ka falses so im used to slowing down immediately. I hope they can narrow this down and fix it.

Happy wife, happy life. No more complaints about the detector. Only when we trade vehicles for the carseat. It has been nice to have a quiet ride with the family and still have some CM in the vehicle. Only thing left for me to do is order an extra power cable, suction cups (travel kit), and a shirt over at the Radenso website. :)cough: Large :cough:) :p;)

I really think this is going to be the most tolerable unit to take the family half way across the country without spending a lot of time setting it up or constantly muting it.

One update, I reflashed my R7 to 124 and it SMOKED the previous K speed sign results (including the Pro M) I mentioned in a previous post here. Have been running R7 exclusive this week, and back to Redline in my foul weather/beater car. V1 got demoted to the truck for now (yes, blasphemy! I just don’t have enough cars!)

Also looking forward to an update that slows down some of these 33.8 BSM like alerts, seems like I’m not the only one taking notice. They are not nearly as frequent as the K junk from other units but still a bit inconvenient. I am afraid these are going to be the reason Bosslady didn’t slow down for a legit threat. She already got too comfortable with the mute button on the Redline. I am trying to retrain her to “just slow down when this one beeps” but it is still beeping KA for “no reason” at times. Has already saved her once too, though. So she is starting to trust it.

So final update I can really offer here, as the wifey mostly drives with the Pro M now... And I admit I am a little jealous....

Bought a cheapo $32 mirror mount and bolted the suction mount to it (you guys know the one...) the original suction cups just kept falling off the windshield. They are pretty much flat now, not sure if anyone else has this issue?

Same with my GF ... She is Veeeeery B!tchy ... ehrr ... "opinionated" and she absolutely hated my R3. And I had it locked down to practically no signal during her tenure ... L0L.
I told her this is the schizznit and top-rated and she told me she would rather drive without a detector than be subjected to the "Alerts".

Luckily my Pro M upgrade arrived during the work week and I swapped it back and hard-wired it just below RVM.

So I feel ya my friend.
Granted my R3 was hott and would sniff the LEOs earlier, but the trade off was just too much. Besides my Pro SE (( No BSM CHIP), ( predecessor) to the Pro M would sniff out the Leos everytime and plenty of time to react. My DFR7 not so much. The pro M is DEFINITELY GF/Wifey/passenger friendlier !! I now run the Remote version of the Pro M ... the RCM and Loooove it !!
