    How to check which R7 hardware version you have....

    Well since Uniden have only released one type of firmware update for the R3 and R1 it makes sense there isn't a lottery of which version do you get when you set out to buy one. Since there is only one type of firmware for them, there isn't any chance of getting one with a different processor...

    What detector was that with? Did you see the source? I would expect that would be a false alert.

    Currently I don't have a new hardware version of the R7, once I get a new version, I'll start building the new R7forNZ version I have in mind. This will be a much faster build process than 138 Int. 138 Int took over 2 months of work working on it several hours every day. In contrast the new...

    35.5 Test: V1G2 4.1027, R7 1.40 vs. everything else - Oct 18, 2021

    DC Fluid, I'd be interested also to see if you could perhaps do a comparison of a US 140 R7 which has the original hardware and a US 140 R7 which has the new hardware. Please have a look on my new thread if you want to see how to tell them apart. Given the code of the two versions is slightly...

    How to check which R7 hardware version you have....

    As many of you will know, due to supply chain issues many R7s are now being shipped with some new internal parts. The latest official Uniden 140 firmware file includes two separate sets of all the firmware components. When using this file, the new Uniden upload tool v2.04 first checks to see...

    R7 update 140 is out

    So some new R7s shipped with 140 are without doubt on the original R7 hardware. Having run my test firmware to indicate a factory supplied US140 R7, I then went further. This one is now converted to 138 International firmware and working fine, I just tested the K band alert to radar and also...

    So following my discovery today, it looks like many R7s arriving on the 140 firmware may still have the original processor and thereby be compatible with my R7 138 International firmware. I've released a firmware modification for use on the new Uniden upload tool which should allow people to...

    R7 update 140 is out

    I have made a potentially interesting discovery. I created a new 140 firmware file and modified just the startup splash screen of both UI versions to tell me which one is which. I installed on my original R7 and displays R7 Original. When I installed on a new R7 which arrived on US140 it also...

    R7 update 140 is out

    DFR9 1.02 was never released as far as I know. That is why it would be handy now to have both versions made available. Otherwise you get stuck on 1.04 and no way back to 1.02. 1634548342 I'm going to start by writing a modified US140 firmware file. This could then be used to install on any...

    R7 update 140 is out

    Please could someone also query this with Uniden: E.g. @DC Fluid @Vortex It's nice to see the new DFR9 1.04 firmware made available. But it looks as though Uniden also intended to release the original 1.02 DFR9 firmware also. It would be nice to have both versions available (the link here is...

    @jonup Thanks for the heads up. So I have started to update the new database. My update tool identified one location for a query: (51.07447052,-114.11856842) Speed Cam 70km/h Mono-directional SSE (151 Deg) (51.07447052,-114.11856842) Redlight Cam Mono-directional SSE (151 Deg)...

    R7 int vs nz

    Thanks for the notifications and recommendations! The new stock of R7s on Amazon will likely have the new R7 processor and new 140 firmware. It will likely take a bit of time to build the next R7 update, however, I have given it quite a bit of thought already. Even if my NZ firmware update...

    At the end of the day, the R7 is fully digital so the tolerances are much higher than the Analogue detectors. That means any false alert at e.g. 24.105 will never fall within the alert area if I set the upper limit to 24.100.

    NZ Chat thread - Post anything related to CM

    As many of you may be aware, the US140 R7 firmware has now been released. Therefore I am looking to prioritise a basic rebuild of the US140 for NZ with a K Narrow (NZ) setting. This will save me a lot of work adding all the extra features implemented on R7 138 International. This will therefore...

    Uniden R7 - Firmware Change-log and Outstanding Issues

    It was my feeling that the GPS range options had changed also. Perhaps someone could check this as it was based upon a quick review based upon my memory of US137. However, with so many other builds and firmwares I could easily be mistaken.

    R7 update 140 is out

    Just getting my head around all this now. I was busy working on some GPS functionality for the detectors to improve performance for the UK. That's taken me some time. The updates here look really useful. I will have to spend some time looking into all this. The DFR9 firmware update is also...

    Laser Detection on a Radar Detector: More than just a ticket Notifier?

    So my old video camera I haven't used in 10 years has an IR function which looks to do the job. You can actually just see the laser beam outline on the black perspex:
