    Are radardetector repair shops?

    My Uniden R3 is having an issue that may be minor but the only solution seems to be to mail it to Uniden, wait God knows how long for it to be repaired and returned. When I have a minor problem with my cell phone, repair places are all over town. I wonder if there are radar detector shops...

    Why do people upgrade?

    I read threads when a detector comes out and people are thrilled with it. The R-1 or the Rodense SP or the V-1 got rave reviews and the radar they purchased they were very happy about but a year or so later, the same person has purchased an R-3 or another newer model. I just don’t get why? if...

    R3 not lighting up

    It did not work. When I press the mute button, and hold it, I hear the dim, bright, stuff but the detector has no lights. I get the sound warning, and I have been driving with that guiding me, but the lights and K, ka, etc., don’t come on. I guess my only choice is to use it as it is (it...

    R3 not lighting up

    Sorry if this has been covered before. My R3 display light is off. It still gives audio signals letting me know K band or Ka band, etc., but the light is off so I don’t get any visual warning or GPS at all. Is there a way to get the light back on?

    Urgent, is this a good deal?

    Thinking of first steps after I get it. I just purchased it and it should get here by April 11th. 1. I dont know if it needs to get updated. I should check it but how? I guess I will have to read up on that. 2. I understand that Vortex has some recommended settings. I have to find those...

    Urgent, is this a good deal?

    Thanks. I am used to driving with a car max that I used straight out of the box. I am not good at settings. While I drive 50% city and 50% highway, I drive through parts of city where cops hide to catch folks driving over speed limit in 30 mph and 40 mph zones. I need protection but also BSM...

    new R3 owner

    Once you get the R3, can you just use it as out of box? I am concerned about using settings. I just used my old Escort Max straight out of box for 5 years and it did fine. Now, I am considering an R3. If settings need to be set for an average driver (50% city 50% highway) who lives in an...

    Radenso pro SE vs other choices..

    There is a radenso pro se for about $260. Are the differences worth it to go for the Radenso XP or any suggestion on something equally good? I have gotten by with the original Escort Max but its 6 years old and I am thinking of getting a new one under $300 if possible. Only the Rodenso pro...

    Escort Max acting wierd

    Its the original Max, not Max2. In any case, if you can tell me how to get the original setting back, will appreciate it. How do you update the firmware too?

    Escort Max acting wierd

    I bought the Escort Max around 2014 or 2015. It worked great for years. It would start chirping and grow louder as it approached radar. Saved me quite a few tickets. during all these years, it chirped but now there is no chirping, either a blank white screen or "caution" or "slow down" with...

    Newbie with Max

    I have recently purchased and started using the passport MAX. Odd thing s that when I approach my place of work, a cute picture of a cop car and distance in feet comes up with a warning, "trap". I drove around and saw nothing, now, I notice the same thing happens no matter which direction I...

    Newbie, just bought the MAX, have some questions..

    Thanks, Guys!!! Much appreciated. I just read the review from the Veil Guy and it made me think that I should just return the MAX for something else!!! he does not recommend the MAX. Hopefully some of you are okay with it.
