Looking to buy new radar detector which one ? Redline EX or Uniden R7. They are both are about 600.00. What you you buy? and why. I head some good reports about the EX . and bad reports compared to the original Redline for distance.
Welcome to the RDF! If it were me, I would buy the Uniden R7 and twice on Sunday.
By the way, Range is a Myth. It is a marketing tool for detectors with less to offer. I run a V1 which is third and fourth in overall range depending on the test and I haven't had a ticket since 1997 and I am plus 25 over PSL at all times while I drive.
IMHO, the R7 is a better investment and will have future firmware upgrades that will bring more improvements.
Looking for an RD recommendation? The Radar Detector Forum community would love to help you find a suitable detector for YOUR specific vehicle and YOUR specific driving habits and Your specific driving location. Sometimes we can also help make a recommendation if you've received a ticket...
Welcome to RDF! No seat time with the EX, but I’ve used the R7 since launch and it’s an awesome detector. I used to run the Redline-O back in the day and loved it, but like you, I’ve heard mixed reviews about the EX. Then again, I’m sure not everyone loves the R7 either. As others have suggested, providing more of what you’re looking for in a detector is always helpful.
