Purchased a Uniden R7 last weekend for my fiancés (new to us) car. I have a V1 paired up with JBV1 and love the situational awareness the arrows provide. So there was no way I was giving that up. The price tag on the R7 is steep but I'm hoping with a few more firmware updates and eventually auto lockouts, it'll all be worth it in the end! I already ordered a MirrorTap kit, just waiting for it to arrive so I can clean up the install. My lady isn't use to a car with more than 90hp so it's probably a good thing she gets the RD with the longest range ;)

Make sure you set it up with all the quietest options.
Otherwise it may end up out the window ! ;)
Haha the wedding would be off if she did that! She's all in favour of it and I did do some tweaking to help with false alerts. I also showed her how to start muting some of the false K band alerts in the city.

I've had my R7 since the first batches (other than those stupid best buy early shipments that went out) were released and I gotta say it's awesome. I'll never not have arrows again. I just got back from another 4hr trip to Charleston with my R7 and it never lets me down. You (or your fiance) will love it, congrats!

Got my R7 in the first batch from BestRadarDetectors. Its been great. I agree that some additional firmware updates to add some additional features/refine some current ones will make this even more awesome!
Congrats on the RD and car! What BMW did you get?

I'd really like to see the option to disable K band on the rear antenna in a future firmware. We picked up a BMW X3 E83 for a steal. I've posted more about it here: Latest Purchase BMW X3 E83

Nice save with the V1 crowd... ;)
