Hey guys

i am new here and new with radar detectors.
Recently i purchased Uniden R7, it works great but recently after the firmware upgrade i am constantly getting K band alert for frequency 24.160 to 24.168 i believe it is from my Jeep’s BSM.i have a 2020 Jeep Cherokee with Lane assist/Collision detection and other bells and whistles.

i am not getting this alert in my other car which is 2017 Honda Accord which does not have BSM.

i have set rear balance to 30% which helps somehow.

i am from Wisconsin and here i am constantly seeing the k band so i have not turned it off..

Sometime i get the alert even in my garage as soon as i start the car(jeep)

is there any way i can block this frequency

You’ve turned on all the k band filters?

You can also dial k band sensitivity back via advanced mode and still get good range.

My MDX would set off my R7 every once in a while in the garage but never once I left. I started with the recommended settings on vortexradar.com and made adjustments to the rear balance as well as the K band advanced setting until I had what I wanted. I landed on 60% for K with a rear balance of 70%.

If you haven't already, I highly recommend reviewing this...

Welcome aboard and congratulations on your R7! As @factoryguy posted, the setup guide from @Vortex is an outstanding place to start with your settings. You'll need to fine tune them for your area and remember to set the GMT for your location.

I am frequently seeing k band alert by passing Accura RDX or MDX...30% rear balance helps me somehow, tired 70% but still getting the alert
