Trying to find some useable settings for the R7 in Edmonton. I cant seem to get it to detect MRCD even when I am stopped right in front on the photo trucks on 66st. Mrcd is on but something else must be wrong.

Welcome to RDF! Unfortunately, MRCD detection is currently unreliable on the R7, with alerts sometimes being reported as K band instead of MRCD, the detector not alerting until after passing the threat, and sometimes not alerting at all. Hopefully a future firmware update will address this. A highly recommended detector when facing MRCD is the Radenso Pro M, so you may want to consider that instead.

Check out this thread for a MRCD performance comparison between the R7 & Pro M. The R7 is not running the most current firmware in the linked thread, but no changes were made to MRCD performance on the most current firmware (124.124.111)

Well damn, I wonder if Uniden will get it fixed. Might go back to my passport max as it is far less chatty and the auto lockout works great.

I’m confident that they will. The R7 was designed with MRCD in mind, so I don’t think they’ll just abandon trying to improve it. The R7 is far more sensitive than the Max so I would run in Advanced mode and try turning down your K band sensitivity. Start at 70% and go down from there as needed until you find your sweet spot. Also make sure K filter and K Block (only available on the latest firmware 124.124.111) are enabled. Enabling TSF may help as well. Leave K POP disabled. Auto lockouts are supposed to make there way to the R7 at some point, but at least for now you have manual lockouts.
