I had a pretty epic 2 mile save on I-35 starting at Mills civic Pkwy going south to the IA-5 bypass exit, where a state trooper was sitting. The elevation change and the fact that he was running constant on helped. I think my R7 is just a hair hotter than my R3.

I'd have to check to see which serial number I got, but I know it did come with FW 121.122.111 which was a step up from what some people were getting so I assume it was a unit from later in that production run.

Did some K-Band Speed Sign testing yesterday and the R7 did outperform my R3, in initial radar detections.
I re-uploaded FW123 twice with recovery mode checked, prior to the testing. Maybe my R7 is just fine... time will tell.

Curious what your production # was and if you got a hot R7? I just tested the R7 and R3 against a K-Band speed sign again today, and wow my R7 is smoking the R3 on K-Band.

Caught your chat while viewing new posts and profile comments, good to see what appears to be more than one fellow Iowa resident around here...

ISP sure seems to be hit or miss for C/O vs I/O. Did you both see my one comment on another thread about the new trick I witnessed one using headed to Dunlap on 80 west just past Casey and Adair?

I did not, I’ll try to search to find it or let me know what it was about as I travel to Omaha a good amount.

Basically the gist was ISP rolling at 10-15 under PSL in the slow lane. Rubbernecking every car for sear belts/cellphones/plates etc... anyone obliviously rolling past quickly would get an I/O hit.
