Just ordered R1 from Sams Club, and it occurred (as usual after I ordered) to me that this model is getting long in the tooth. How much longer is it expected that Uniden will support with updated firmware? Is there a version preference when I do the update? Seems like general opinions are decent of most recent, 1.53, but I'll be counting on the RD during a long road trip soon and wont have too much time to get comfortable with it or to play with versions. Thanks for the help!

Long in the tooth or not the R1 is still a great detector! I have 5 of them and they are no nonsense killers! I'm still running 1.50 in all 5 and they all work so good that I'm not changing to 1.53.

Updates have definitely slowed down for sure, but there's a new update in the works. I have no idea when it'll be released.

Do you know, or are allowed to say, if the new firmware is supposed to improve their K band falsing? I ended up buying a V1G2 and even without an app it seems quieter than my R7.

I’m not restricted from saying anything. I just have found that it causes more problems than it solves to share what’s in the works, that’s all.

That said, if you’re wanting better BSM filtering, going for something like a V1 Gen2 is a great idea.
