    Uniden R7 questionable speedcam database

    I do a semi regular drive that takes me down 95 through Baltimore and DC (495). During the MD/DC portion of this trip, the R7 alerts to ~5 speed cameras that clearly don't exist. In fact I don't think I've ever had it alert to a speed camera that was real. (for RLCs it seems fairly accurate) Is...

    Unpopular Opinion: The Uniden R7 will never get auto-lockouts

    Let me preface this by saying, as an R7 owner I obviously hope I'm wrong.. but.... Unless there is some memory they have hidden away not currently in use for this future purpose, I don't think it has enough memory to do auto-lockouts properly. You basically need to store every K band encounter...

    Is there any way to remove a lockout that is no longer present on the R7?

    I think the answer to this is no but figured I'd ask anyway. They setup a K band speed sign near my house recently, but removed it a week later. Is there any way for me to go to the spot it used to be and clear any lockouts stored for that area even if the signal is no longer present?

    About the sleeping/lockup bug

    Does anyone own a 360C (or other variant, Bel, Cobra, original 360, etc) on the latest firmware, as well as a radar source to test for the presence of the sleeping bug, who can confidently say that their detector does not suffer from this problem? Trying to see if we can prove the problem only...

    First video of a VPR gun being jammed

    A recent post in the "External Links" section made me want to dig this vid up, which I believe is the first video showing a VPR gun being jammed (DALA). That jammer is so damn powerful it looks like a third headlight when it starts firing back. :eek:

    Has anyone found an easy way of mounting a remote M3 antenna to the windshield?

    Plan on doing some testing to hopefully show the effects of the glass. I could build something, but if a good solution already exists then I'll just go with that. Ty

    Horn extensions for improving MRCD/MRCT detection

    With MRCD/MRCT speed cameras becoming more prevalent in North America it may be time to investigate the use of radar horn extensions to improve detection. If you are not familiar with the concept, these horn extensions usually mount onto a remote radar detector antenna and can greatly improve...

    Looking for members' thoughts/opinions regarding two testing scenarios

    ECCTG's methodology for doing a head to head jammer comparison has in the past been as follows: - Install Jammer A on test car - Test Jammer A - Remove Jammer A - Install Jammer B in the same location that Jammer A was installed - Test Jammer B The idea is to keep the variable of...

    New system is up

    Blinder Laser Jammers Looks like just preorders for now. I must admit I'm slightly disappointed in two things. 1. Price - more expensive than LI? 2. From the pic it looks like the CPU is the switch? or thats just a big ass switch. Heads look pretty small though.

    Can you set ZR4s to receive only mode when they are not interfaced to an RD?

    Got a set of ZR4s to act as backup and run alongside the LIs. I was planning on interfacing them with the OG STi-R but now I realize they aren't compatible. :( Is there a way to use the ZR4s in receive only mode when they aren't interfaced to an RD? I could not figure out how based on the manual.

    Connections to sensors are poor or bad. READ THIS

    If you are getting the "Connections to sensors... are poor or bad" error on LI startup, its highly likely it isn't because the sensors are bad. The most common cause of this error isn't actually a bad connection, rather a power issue. Every car's electrical system is different and the LI likes...
