Couldnt been a better 24 hours going on day 2. So last night it sniffed out a 35.5ka fhp hiding way down the road as my Redline b/s 2/5/8, rdr off remained silent...Case closed I listed on ebay last night with original box and it sold 10pm last night(cant freaking believe I sold it on day 1)
so I basically got the R3 for a little more than 100$ after redline sold for 215$. I got my R3 319$ tax free. Not a bad deal.
Anyways after mailing this am the road curves around here at 30mph they use instant on ka and i had few rabbits around the corner a blast(warning for couple secs) before i was the target.( very close call as i was doing 40 in a 30. I look behind me he pulled the car behind us got lit up-pulled over..Point is the r3 sniffed out the ka before i could see him around the corner giving me time to slow down before the full blast. It was close. If i didnt pay attention and immediately slow i was busted. Lol (so i put a mark on that location on selvitz road where it drops to 30mph.)
So, hella day... 2 legit saves....the one this morning was freaking close! Quiet r3 is awesome. 60% k band is equal to my redline k band in testing(did this yesterday before I sold the redline same day yesterday...cant believe it) It is very quiet with gps lockout features and filter running k narrow as well. Havent seen k band guns outside of 24.133-24.169 so i chose to run k narrow which makes quiet ride except for threats. Already paid for itself.

There is one martin county sheriff that has Kband thats like 24.070 so he can be out of Knarrow, but thats the only one i have found. if you drive in martin county on the back roads you might need to go wide... on the highway I wouldn't worry much... highest I have seen is 24.177 and that was in palm beach county. Glad you are liking it, I love my R1, it has saved me more times than I can count. I just grabbed a DFR 7 to have as a rear ghetto arrow, and I havent been able to find a radar trap since I got it... I ran through a trap today and it was laser... so no idea how my new detector works cause I can't find any radar traps! lucky you have found a few right off the bat!

I will try k wide since its so freaking quiet anyways to be safe. Thanx for the heads up.
Love the quiet ride feature at lights or in traffic is quiet under 25mph....this r3 is awesome
Honestly in testing the other day, the r3 definately interfered with my redline performance... i knew the r3 was better but some ka alerts the redline didnt even see till really close( not normal) anyways, sold and gone. R3 is my new baby:) TMG laser defense...(just neeed my rears)

Waze and local routes I have just found(mostly theres churches and a school somewhere on these roads but schools out. Yesterday was too close. instant on ka and the r3 gave me around a corner just enough warning from dude in front before full alert giving the guy few cars behind me the lights on and ticket....got lucky there on selvitz by the school around corner. it goes 40 mph to 30mph around the corner and if you miss it they wait right there(always laser/ka in am during school year with stalker xlr.(not there currently except by chance like yesterday)
Im just lucky i was able to pick up ka scatter around the corner in time for me to slow to 30 fast! (I also put a mark on this location on the r3 as this is a known trap! Love this Dam R3, and my TMG as much!
