@Vortex are you planning to update the recommended settings for the R7 with the new firmware on your website?

Eventually, yes. I just don’t have time right now, but I’ll get to it. In the meantime, I’m sure people can read over the changes and choose whichever options make the most sense. :)

Whether it hurts people's feelings or not, the teaser was a teaser - gotta get the hype going. Thats been popular around here!

When did the R7 come out? Has its BSM filtering changed since then and in a significant manner? K Block 🤣

A miracle ain't going to happen, just compromise. I am excited for the auto lockouts for those that prefer that kind of stuff!

That's a big deal! Where's Hunt... I mean the latest R7 update w/ that feature? Kind of weird to get a teaser about that, but a different update ends up popping out? 🤔

Hope some RDF members test the speed of the K Band reaction time with the filtering on. That will make me wonder if I will jump v1.24 or not.

Initial bench tests against my Bushnell seem to put reactivity close to 1.29. I tested both Highway and Advanced @40% with K Filter, TSF, and K Block on. Not scientific by any means but I didn’t notice anything to cause any worry. Sub second pulls were caught easily.

Good deal. Thanks for the info.

I just did some more testing. City mode seems to be a little slower to react than Advanced and Highway. I never really tested city on 1.29 so I can’t say whether there is a difference between versions. Still reacts in less than a second, but not as quick as the other two modes.

Is a “Factory Default” required after updating the firmware on the R7?

The instructions states to do that as a final step. I had no problems with the upgrade.

As someone else suggested, it's a good idea to use your phone camera to record all your settings. Easy to do.

Why is this necessary? Just curious. I know Uniden recommends it, but just curious why.
Not sure, not my area of expertise but there was a computer programmer on one of these threads that said to do it, something about clearing files...

I have not updated mine yet, and just read Vortex update comments. Wonder if there would be any differences between K block and the new K filter...
