    Driving in Hawaii (Big Island, Oahu)

    Looks like the Mauna Kea Visitor Center is closed right now due to Covid. Welcome to MKVIS - Maunakea Visitor Information Station (hawaii.edu)

    Driving in Hawaii (Big Island, Oahu)

    When the wife and I went to the big island for our 25th, we rented a Mustang convertible, and I really enjoyed it. By the way, if you want to go see the observatories on Muana Kea, you'd better book a tour now. They fill up fast. And you aren't supposed to drive up the dirt road to the summit...

    Escort Redline 360c Firmware v1.8 Release

    I upgraded mine today. One small issue. I had to unpair and re-pair my phone's bluetooth to the detector to get it to connect to EL.

    New Upgrade Now Up

    Well, I updated mine. I didn't watch it, but I think it updated without any problems. Did do some quick bench K-band testing (posted in Intermediate+ Testing). New fw doesn't seem to help the K alert delay against the Python II FS. @WildOne - have you had a chance to test the new fw with your...

    R7 auto memory for KA alert?

    If you have voice alerts on, it should go to the lower volume right after the voice announcement of the alert.

    Yeah, I'm not in Florida. But we have plenty of members who are. Maybe some of them can help. @Bocephus @thebravo @Patton250 @jestric

    R7 auto memory for KA alert?

    If you are talking about Auto Mute vs. Auto Mute Memory, yes, Auto Mute works with Ka. Like you said, you may want to check your Auto Mute volume setting and make sure it is lower than your standard volume setting.

    Perpendicular Ka

    That sounds like exactly what happened.

    I'm surprised. What's next? Redline-Os?

    Why no bluetooth with the R7?

    @Boozehound - if you think an Escort suction cup mount is superior, suggest you use the single suction cup Uniden mount. It should have come with your R7. And it won't explode someday like the Escort sticky cup will...lol EDIT: I guess I should read the whole thread before posting (i.e...

    RL360C 1.8 Big 3 Shootout Part 2 K Band, 33.8, 34.7

    Fair points. I have also seen some evidence that the RL360c may have better response time against weak, off-axis K-band signals. So you may be onto something there.

    RL360C 1.8 Big 3 Shootout Part 2 K Band, 33.8, 34.7

    @Rags - thanks again for your time, effort and $$ for testing. I have to admit that I'm having a bit of a hard time wrapping my head around the K-band results given previous testing I have done with these detectors. The only thing I can think of that may explain it is the fact that most of...

    RL360C 1.8 Big 3 Shootout Part 1 35.5 and K Band

    Thanks again for your time, effort, and $$ spent testing and writing up the results. And thanks for the explanation of why you tested with TSR on. I was wondering.

    Why no bluetooth with the R7?

    Actually, Attowave has tried harder than most know. Part of the problem, to be honest, may be that frequently the beta testers told Uniden that beta fw with a 1 to 1.5 second delay on K-band was not acceptable, and to be honest, not much testing was done in the wild to see how good those fws...

    Is a v1g2 right for me

    You can use V1 Driver with your iPhone and get a lot of benefits. Not everything that JBV1 brings to the table, but not everyone feels the need for everything JBV1 brings to the table either.

    Why no bluetooth with the R7?

    I agree with this statement. I will say this however, I'm skeptical that either Escort or VR will solve the problem, just as Uniden hasn't been able to solve BSMs while retaining great K-band reactivity. All these detectors only seem to have the ability to do one or the other but not both...

    Escort Redline 360c Firmware v1.8 Release

    2 seconds on 34.7? Seg'd 2/4/5/6/8? That's bad.
