    Laser went off on R7 for the first time ever

    Got a laser alert today for the first time on my R7 after using for about 1 year. I looked around and didn't see anything but it was going off for like 5 seconds straight. Is there a hold even on a short blast to it alerting constant, or during the entire encounter? I was wondering if I was...

    If you don't think arrows are worthy, think again.

    Uniden R1 good, but not great

    As a user of all detectors (and yes, I have nearly owned them all) find the R1 is just reasonable performance, but not getting the "WOW" factor I was expecting. The alerts around corners and over the hill are only found when the officer or myself crests the hill or comes around the bend. I am...

    Blinder Support and continuation

    I am having a hard time believing Blinder does not keep their firmware updated. 2 years seems like a long time and makes a person feel like they have sold an item but support drops at your credit card swipe. Firmware updates continuously give users a sense of commitment and support from an...
