The R7 is consistant with Radar though.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.
Yes the build quality is inconsistent, that is one of my biggest complaints with the Unidens, if the R7 was detectable at 1000 feet by the spectre I would just say that it is false advertisement, but the fact that different R7s have different results is just poor craftsmanship .
However the R7 is the most Spectre stealth arrowed detector out there.At least a cop running a Spectre from a bridge is not going to chase after you.
And laser.. well yes I give you that laser should work for a 600 dollar detector.
The Uniden is a fanstastic unit, but for 600 dollars it should had been built a lot better.
