If you need a detector NOW get an R3 if you can wait a month or two than get an R7. I would have kept my R7 and I will probably get an R7 once the bugs are ironed out....unless Radenso releases [email protected]
I installed the latest 124.124.111 firmware update on my R7 and WOW! It is quiet on K Band while still giving plenty of range for legitimate C/O K Band encounters. Almost no false signals from vehicles; maybe 1 or 2 per hour of drive time. FWIW I do have stationary K Band sources like intersection radar sensors locked out.

Mode: City
TSF: On
K Band Mode: Wide
K Filter: On
K Block (Notch): On
K POP: off
MRCD: off
QuietRide: 20mph

I'm hearing the same... the sound of silence for the most part...

My R7 on 124 is really quiet too, but I need more seat time. I keep my R7 in me weekend car and my R3 in my beater.. So I won't get more seat time till this weekend. As it stands, my R7 isn't only quiet, compared to my R3, but it eats my R3's lunch in range.

I really hope they get K block added to the R3, until a real working BSM filter is implemented. Based on it now working on the R7, it makes a significant difference.

I bumped up the K sensitivity to 50% on the R7 because 30% had me worried. My QR is set to 50 mph... but that's where my R3 is also set.

I have a Walmart online R7 and was getting GPS errors and almost returned it but knowing I have 90 days to
return it I decided to re-flash the latest FW.

No more GPS errors so far and I run it in highway mode and wow its quiet. No LEO encounters yet.

Had my R3 for quite some time. Whichever one you pick, I'm sure you will be happy. They are both fantastic RD's.
