    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...

    R3 not lighting up

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

    I just bought the max and hooked it on. Now, I am wondering of I should do something regarding settings. Settings say, Novice or Advanced. I am assuming this relates to technical ability and not driving speed/experience of driver. Correct? What meter mode is best for someone who will mostly...
