R7 is more a 1 trick pony, cheaply mad, terrible k bad filtering unless you turn sensitive down to escort levels! I don’t need 3 mile alert just makes me wast my time slowing down way to early and everyone passes you by!
But in the end,it does what you pay for it to do better than the V1, and that is to warn you sooner to the presence of radar.

Even with filtering dialed down it still has more range or the same as a V1.

Like it or not the R7 is king right now..

Back to topic:

Based on history, patent progress, gut instinct, there will be upgrade V1. New stuff, new capabilities, something unique that matters, becomes a best seller again. Maybe a end of the scale for legacy design. And cost more (aid dojt care if it is worth it). It could end up being like the old classic Escort DSP model. The top of the era that lasted for a short time.

But...... What/who will be the next generation of transformation? VR, Radenso? Some young buck top engineers who like to go fast, and hate tickets from any method have family backing and form a new non overseas contract engineered company and USA made system? Are there any top flight new USA/CA engineers who want to be in this space? Will Radenso live. out the vision of their leader?

For now, no total transformation from VR? Listening to each other, new VR led transformation is impossible in our world. Is that true, or will MV come up with something transformational he and his partner Jim did so long ago? For me, it would only meet that criteria if it included laser systems in the transformation. So far, we have heard nothing of that.
I personally believe radenso next detector will be the one

The king of what? Distance? Big deal it's cheap build quality and crap filtering along with a $600 price tag had mine go back after 1 week. Not a fanboy of any brand as I run Radenso at this time but the Uniden detector will not stand the test of time like the V1. One is slapped together in Korea and the other assembled by people who care in Ohio

Redirecting: ;)

I have said before that I could see an external display being updated with other features without the V1 being updated due to ESP.

If some parts of the existing display are the parts that they are having trouble sourcing, maybe they do have to change the V1 main display.
As the prime interface for the unit for those that don't use extra displays, that has to be a big deal.

I wonder if we will know which parts were giving them issues?

Its fine you didn't like the R7 but I'm getting tired of seeing this because it's simply not true. If you think the filtering is "crap" then you had the wrong settings applied. Properly dialed settings make for a very quiet ride with the R7. Also, people in Korea don't care? I've met the Attowave guys and I can assure you they do care.

Hopefully, we see something soon :)! An updated external display would be a great upgrade for the V1. Always liked that accessory.

I truly don't know; but speculating, I wonder if some users when faced with the choice of a Radenso or the R7 that requires the properly dialed in settings mentioned might come away with ideas of being frustrated by what is offered so far in the R7. It's likely all about personal perspectives. :)

My prediction is
-An LCD or LED display to display band and frequency.

-Internal Blue tooth.

-Updated K filter.
One could only wish!

Frequency display and better K band filtering are higher on my update wishlist than more range.

The unit could actually be used without peripheral hardware.

There are no filtering settings. K block? That's useless. Muting it with quiet ride is not a filter setting. Im not fan boy have and use r7 right now but can't wait to get rid of it.. Just waiting for v1 or radenso to give me something.. Anything.

However I'll give credit where it's due.. The best display in the biz.

I'm not looking to fan the flames with my comments on the Uniden detector. My needs and wants living in SE PA are not the same as others and build quality is very important to me. My first R7

Umm what? I think you should refer to the manual as you clearly don’t understand the options available. A combination of the right settings allow for a quiet ride. You have k filter which is a filter and you have the ability to dial the sensitivity down which will eliminate the falsing. Even with the R7 set to 40% it will beat a V1 with TMF2 enabled. TSF can also help in some cases.

Let's not get into a pissing match as every product has it's pros and cons along with it's followers. I think the radenso M is a well balanced detector but has it's short comings along with looks and feels cheap. Again this is my daily detector. The Uniden has outstanding range but the K filtering and build quality was an issue for me again I stress ME. My V1 has been in the closet for the past year as I had some extremely close encounters that left me looking for a bit more range in some situations. I have always had a V1 but I also have run several escort beltronics and Uniden along the way. For what it's worth one of my favorites was my DFR7. Now let's get back to I called VR and the girl told me 2 weeks and it will be nuclear powered and save mankind for $400 something

Absolutely and I agree. This response was a lot better than your original post.

People are going to have their own opinions on things.. It is whatever it is to them..

Getting back on topic.. my current opinion on the V is that either V as a company is done... either closing doors or waiting to be sold off or their new V1 will just be the same old V1 they've been selling for years. Might have a new display and changes to support it, but nothing new to make it perform better or worse.

It really boggles my mind that any company that basically sells one product wasn't prepared to keep that product in stock. I don't care if they needed to reduce stock because of something new or it was just parts. If the plan was new product, they should have stock piled the new 1st before allowing old stock to disappear. If it's parts.. man, they've been using the same parts for years, so they should have been ordering parts well in advance.

Let's say they knew to order parts 3 months in advance.. that would mean 8 months now since they've been trying to get the part(s). This makes it really hard to believe that it's a parts issue. I really do think MV was out to sell the business and something fell through. Because no matter how much bank you have, it makes no business sense.

From a business stand point this appears to be a cluster screw but if VR delivers the goods then this goes away like an NFl players drug conviction

<rant> Should we just go back to RDT (where for a short time we seemed to forget about petty arguments with each other about RD brands)? Have we not learned anything from what just transpired? Can't we all like various detectors (with their good points and bad) and state that in a mature way without bashing another brand? Makes me SMH. </rant>

I prefer the V1 to the Pro M because I can't trust the Pro M on K band. This has been supported by testing by two separate testing groups. I have a serious need for K band detection, specifically detecting low powered K band and discerning two different signals from directions; the V1 can handle this best. Sure the R7 is a runner up, but it fails to provide a signal count.

I'd like to see improved range and filtering, absence of dongle, specific laser filtering, and a display conducive to discernment of band at night. Detection of newer radar threats is imperative to push the V1 into the next era of detectors, but this should be an optional feature.

The gravity of this situation is another step of improvement from the best option available (for me). I don't care how long it takes. There will not be a rushed, flimsy build. Uniden fired their shot, and I'd like to see how Radenso will respond. In the meantime, I'll be continuing to daily my V1 and have patience for the next iteration.

We can continue this discussion without aggression towards other forum members or manufacturers.

I share your frustration. :)

What we probably have to remember is that roughly 120-150 out of 250 frequent members were able to spend time at RDT before everything changed.
Some are still used to the attitudes we all were somewhat used to here and those of us that got a break from that now can help change the outlook here too. :)

I will respectfully disagree. The R7 is the king, but not the king of radar detectors. It's the king of inconsistency. The R7 is completely blind to Polican laser while the R7 will warn you that you've been hit within seconds. The R7 doesn't have a consistent immunity rate. One R7 is immune, while the the one that someone else bought might not be immune. Uniden also has a lot of software tweaks it needs to work on. For $600, I expected not only a better software experience, but significantly better build quality. The V1 is half the price and it is significantly better quality.

I drove on a 1,200 mile trip and then followed that trip with a cross country trip from MD to CA and back to MD and I wasn't impressed at all.
