    Uniden Mac update tool and Apple Silicon

    Thanks. Going to try it out tonight. Didn’t want to brick my unit. 1614315248 Update completed. Drivers and update tool works just fine on my M1 Mac. Updater is translated through Rosetta 2, no universal binary/native support.

    Uniden Mac update tool and Apple Silicon

    Has anyone had any luck updating the R7 from an M1 Mac?

    Any news on R7 Auto lockouts?

    I'm going to assume it's positive given that Vortex was considering pulling the R7 from his recommendations prior to the beta, and that a poor implementation of auto-lockouts with the beta would have hastened that.

    Any news on R7 Auto lockouts?

    Have any of the beta testers described their experience with auto-lockouts yet? Has it been positive?

    To follow up on my story, which is marred by indecision, I have finally found the right detector for me. And that is the Uniden R7. What I ended up doing was purchasing both and spending about two weeks each of them. I first got to experience the R7 and then the V1G2, which was backordered...

    Beta R7 Firmware: 132.140.113 June 18, 2020

    It doesn’t look like it has auto-lockouts, does it?

    MRCD Question

    Either turn off MRCD or turn on Ka lockouts, which will allow you to lock out MRCD too, they just don’t tell you that. Personally, I have Ka lockouts enabled, I got a real MRCD signal from a fixed pole next to the highway on my daily commute, which I’ve locked out.

    V1 Gen2 - Order now or wait? (6/4/20)

    Yeah, ordered beginning of this month.

    V1 Gen2 - Order now or wait? (6/4/20)

    Just got my V1G2 up and running with V1D. I have to say, even without any sort of full lockout training, its just as quiet, if not quieter, on my daily commute. I‘m very impressed with the BSM filtering. I still need to get the hang of V1D and get things dialed in, particularly with how the...

    That’s totally fair. Essentially that’s what I have to do anyways to keep the R7 quite - camera alerts off. The city unfortunately prevents me from really using those manual GPS lockouts to the fullest, because any time I get a K false I look around it could be coming from one of 40 cars around...

    Second guessing R7

    Update: I got my R7 and have got it fairly dialed in. Things I like are the display, low speed muting, and that all the settings are easy to change with everything built right in. I have it down to a reasonably quite package; thanks to all those that helped me with the settings. Things I’m not...

    Locations where you need K Band < 24.050

    I live in NYC, so does that mean I would need to run my R7 on ‘K wide’ to get adequate MRCD/MRCT detection? Or does enabling ‘MRCD’ mean that it will scan down that low even in ‘K narrow’?

    @johnboy00 is this type of statistical analysis and logic a computationally heavy process? Do you think that it can be implemented at the RD level in an effective way or no chance?

    Second guessing R7

    From a physics perspective it would be impossible to distinguish two signals at the same frequency from a single observation point and based on frequency alone. Also, the overlapping frequency would likely interfere with the police radar. It may be able to distinguish a superimposed 2nd signal...

    Question on V1Driver

    If you use CarPlay you can set up a Siri automation to automatically start the V1Driver when it connects to CarPlay. You can do the same thing with a Bluetooth connection, but this will not trigger automatically, you’ll get a pop-up notification asking you to run the automation first.

    This is from the R7 FW update page re: v1.29 “Narrow down the frequency range of Mute Memory function – X Band: 25MHz-> 10MHz, K Band: 30MHz -> 10MHz, Ka Band 100MHz- > 20MHz” So to address the concerns of several people here, it seems like they’ve made lockouts a lot safer in the latest...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that it will only lockout a limited frequency ran Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on your perspective, it's pretty tough to go above the PSL on the FDR. My game plan is to run City mode (K throttled to ~15%), Ka segmented (2,4,5,6,8 -...

    Great info! My usual route is Hawthorne to the UES. So depending on traffic, usually the Sprain to 87, to the FDR via the the RFK/Randles Island bridge. Going North it's pretty much the same thing except I take the Willis Av Bridge from the FDR to 87. Traffic and construction sometimes has be...

    Second guessing R7

    The contrast between the two is funny, on one hand you have the R7 that can't run with an app, and on the other you have the V1G1 that must have an app. And in the end I want to keep my in car process as streamlined as possible, so just reordered the R7. I think I'll be able to tinker with the...

    I have not received the detector yet. Actually, I just canceled my R7 order; hope that wasn’t a mistake. Seems like the V1 gen 2 Is shipping or close to shipping again. Also, I’m a dedicated iPhone user. Can anyone tell me if V1Driver functions well in the background on iOS?
