    Garmin Zumo XT

    Most of you probably don't care about this. The Garmin Zumo XT is a motorcycle specific GPS unit that was just released. I have one mounted on my motorcycle and my Uniden DFR9 is also mounted on the handlebar. Opposite ends of the handlebars. So I go out to pass someone and I'm tagged by...

    Uniden DFR9 Randomly Turning Off

    I have a Uniden DFR9 mounted on my motorcycle using a RAM ball mount and the RAM magnetic base. On local rides and day long rides, it has been working fine since I bought it at Costco in May. Now, it seems to be turning itself off and I'm not finding anything consistent about the failures...

    RJ11 Telephone Cord for Power Cord???

    Okay, so I swapped out the RJ-11 cable yesterday. The Uniden DFR9 powered up just fine. It looks like this is a quick simple fix to the problem of those broken tabs. Thanks again for all your help. Chris

    RJ11 Telephone Cord for Power Cord???

    I tried the search function, but everything seemed to not exactly answer my question, so here goes. Will a RJ11 phone cord work to provide power to a Uniden radar detector? I use my RD on my motorcycle and have purchased a third party power cable to power the unit. One end has an RJ11...

    Generic Radar Detector

    I asked to return it. They sent a credit to my PayPal account almost immediately. The black mat might be handy to put my phone on when I'm trying to use the GPS. So I will get some benefit out of it, I suppose. What it did do, is point out a potential problem to me. I ride a motorcycle...

    Generic Radar Detector

    I can relax now. The USB port doesn't do anything. No worries now about potentially burning it out. Oh...btw, the rubber dashboard mat actually has some use! :D I got such a deal on this too! They've upped the price now to $14.99. I saved $11.

    Generic Radar Detector

    Okay. The radar detector was received, and I got a chance to try it out! I got the "go faster" red color. It looks pretty special. I can either charge it via a 12-volt cord or a USB cord. Hmmm...that's suspicious. USB doesn't put out the same voltage. Maybe the USB opening is there for...

    Generic Radar Detector

    That was hilarious! I did have a Uniden back in 1986-88 or so. The speed limit was 55 mph then, and I was getting out of the USAF and traveling home from Upstate New York to Seattle. It did prove useful back then. I finally sold it because it was worthless in town. Probably the technology...

    Generic Radar Detector

    Hah! I told my wife that it only cost me the same as a latte. You're telling me that it cost me the same as two lattes! :D Chris

    Generic Radar Detector

    Hi! I think I know the answer to this already, but I couldn't resist. :D The purchase, that is. I was on eBay this evening and found a generic unbranded radar detector...for $4 and with free shipping. Like I said, I couldn't resist. I'm sure it is junk. But at $4, I figured it was worth...

    New Guy - Be Easy On Me ;)

    I'm a new guy from the Seattle area. I primarily ride a motorcycle, though I have been known to drive my perfectly great Subaru Outback XT at times. Fun car...I just like the motorcycle more. Chris
