    WAZE GPS SPEED SUDDENLY 10-15 MPH OFF??

    I don't think so. Reason I say that is when I first started using it in my F150 (also aluminum) it displayed an accurate speed. I'm thinking it was an update to either the Sync3, carplay or Waze that did it. My truck is set to update sync when parked at my house within wi-fi range. Not sure if...

    Like most, I'm on here too little too late

    I was also initially worried about data usage on Waze for long trips.....I just used it on a 10 hour road trip, followed by a 14 hour road trip. That data and the rest of the month's usage, I have still only used 1.7 GB's, and I have a 12GB plan. It really doesn't use much at all. I was using it...

    Wazer with a sense of humor?

    Not sure if it was a Wazer with a sense of humor, or an accidental “Mark” Today I get an alert that says “ animal on road ahead” and when I get close there was a broken down Ram pickup on the side of the road. I was Lmao Especially since I’m a Ford guy. Anyone else ever see any strange alerts?

    What is the proper way to break in a new car and make sure that the rings sit and seal correctly?

    I agree, it is already broken in at over 400 miles. Had it only had 6 miles on it like my F150, you could have influenced the break in results.

    Uniden R7 firmware 1.24 released

    I updated mine last night ,and I am very happy about the volume increase. While it is only 2 more levels of adjustment, it seems like you get more dB increase from 6-8 than say going from 1-3 if that makes any sense.

    WAZE GPS SPEED SUDDENLY 10-15 MPH OFF??

    Yes, definitely seems to be Ford/Carplay related. When I drove home yesterday, first I plugged into carplay and it was way too fast. As soon as I unplugged the cord and the screen transitioned back to my phone, it was within 1 MPH and stayed that way. The problem is that it was not always like...

    Re-Thinking a Blendmount for my R7

    I have a "brow tint" on my F150. The suction cup has no problem sticking to the tint and has not moved. It holds really well. Also on my truck, even with the brow, the RD sensor is still shooting just under the tint through clear glass.

    WAZE GPS SPEED SUDDENLY 10-15 MPH OFF??

    I just checked, and it is on Miles/MPH 1560278275 I have not tried any of the above. I will re-boot the phone now, and when I drive home from work today, I will try running it just on the phone/not through carplay.

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    Maybe he left some slack and you can move it where you want it? In the past, I mounted my escort remote on top of the steering column. It was ok, but the bright LED Power indicator was distracting at night to the point of me putting black electrical tape over it. On my current truck, the...

    WAZE GPS SPEED SUDDENLY 10-15 MPH OFF??

    So the other day I started noticing that the vehicle speed being displayed on my WAZE app is way off. Sometimes by more than 10 or 15 mph too fast. I am a fairly new user to WAZE, but I have never noticed the speed being that far off before. I run it though CARPLAY so it shows up on my SYNC 3...

    Re-Thinking a Blendmount for my R7

    You know I have been a really big fan of the Blendmounts, and have had one in each of my last 3 Trucks. I still have my Blendmount for the Escort Redline Original attached to my mirror and was patiently awaiting a new one for my R7....BUT....... I am really starting to like the single suction...

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    So, I ordered the Uniden Hardwire kit, and I will admit that it isn't quite as huge and ugly as it originally seemed from the online pictures in the ads. Not as stylish as the escort, but it will do. I had to extend the power leads by several feet to get over to the passenger side fuse panel on...

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    Maybe I will order one of each and see which one fits my needs better. I like the Safe and Sound's simple stealthy look compared to the OEM, but I'm the kind of person that usually goes OEM to prevent any "issues".

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    It's not the price, they are very cheap actually. It is the reports of the quality issues. Hell I would spend twice as much as long as I was sure the button doesn't break within a month and then I have to rewire it all over again. I'm a buy once cry once kind of guy. 1559766138 I'm kinda...

    R7 Newbie

    You say your side arrows don't work at all? That's strange, mine work really well. Obviously as I pass it will only briefly point to the sides, then immediately to the back but it does make the transition on my unit. Maybe you should return it for another.

    Are the Uniden Remote Mute/ Hardwire kits worth it?

    I searched a few posts and see where some people have used an escort remote mute/hard wire (which I already have one from my previous Redline) with limited functionality. I am reading a bunch of negative reviews on Amazon about the Uniden hard wire kit with mute. There is talk about broken...

    RLC Ticket Came in for Previous Vehicle

    When my dad passed, I sold his truck to a close family friend....I didn't even let him keep the plates. I took them off, typed up a bill of sale, both of us signed it, I notified the insurance company,and filled out the online form saying it had been sold all before he ever left the house. I...

    Finally Able to Test R7 on First Road Trip

    I was in City Mode/TRF On/KBLOCK On, and everything else was still factory settings except the alert tones. Pretty much straight out of the box and Firmware updated. nothing else. 1559224058 Is it anywhere near the border? Maybe some sort of Boarder Patrol technology/sensors? I hunted in Del...
