No

Yes

If you have any preconceived notions or thoughts about RDs, please tell us how long you've been using RDs or other units? etc. -- or any other relevant info you think might be important, let us know that as well.
I want a clean setup.

I am between the Radenso Pro M and the Uniden R7/R3. Would prefer not to use valentine as I have no interest in using my phone. I run Waze through Apple CarPlay. Open to Escort if you guys think its worth it. I spend 50% of my time in Manhattan, 50% in NH during non virus times. NYC seems to be run by communists , so I am in NH now.

At $1000 budget, if you can install yourself, spend some more bucks, try the Radenso RCM? Just a thought.


or, as mentioned, buy R7.. Or I suggest VR G2 right now. Then when “Theoreticalia” (Radenso Theia) comes out at some point, and it is better, sell the G2 (history shows it will have great resale). Or give to the wife.

You could try the RL 360c that has more built in features. Later on, based on recent eBay sales of used Max 360c, resale value should be decent of “Theoreticalia” becomes real and is much better. Or, give the 360c to the better half.
