You'd think people would learn after running off Valentine, Escort, and Uniden. Hell, I have even noticed Tom posting less since the drama is not worth it.

But nope....

Probably a better upper only section that Int or Adv users could only interact with, or Tifosi that would keep the arrogant and/or problematic ones out of the mix that could deter a vendor from partaking... and maybe give others just a view only spot.

I hope that is the Purple sarcasm talking...... as that is what doesn't to get answers and future exclusives... screws us all with that world of thoughts, and why NDAs and beta users can't tell/add to things needed to look forward to.

The day this forum starts bowing to the demands of whiny MFGs just so we have a better chance at “exclusives” and inside info is the day another forum gets started.

I get what your saying.... and I do really wish this could become a reality....... but you see it every day here. Even in this thread.

There’s a small population that taints it. Some legitimate, some uncalled for.... some out of spite.

As a manufactures.... there’s a wealth of resources here.... but the BS to get to it.

Some don’t like the answers they get. You see some of that go on among ourselves.

And, yeah... as we see... hence that select group that has that proper head that can only add to, though Beta world is there it would be nice to be part of... and not.... but still.

I am so Independent on all companies... I report then all I see and like vs dis... have my thoughts to make that better round for many, and maybe the answer is the pending... V1G2 and R7 and R3 WS and to make bettter.

All I can say and $$ to test more with @Kennyc56 . Ones I independently communicate sidebar, they better know who they are... cough, BS, J, BD, Aslpr. WRDRG, and others..... and time Vortex gets with me... I give independent regardless and RAW.

Good way to look at it and don’t stop.

Just because you don’t see anything... or hear back from anyone that has some stroke...... doesn’t mean your not being seen, or heard.

That’s how I look at it.

The testing? It’s primarily for my own self curiosity. I’m not emotionally attached. I like them all for different reasons. It’s a hobby.

The beta testing guys? Who knows. It’s fun to speculate. The usual suspects have been quiet for a long time...... but when they do post....i do pay closer attention to what they write.

I'm thinking there are legal reasons that autolockouts never came to the R7 as promised. Probably patent related issues. But that's just speculation....

The delay in getting the Auto Lockout is All Because of Covent 19!!!!! <just kidding>

I (like some others) bought a R7 for it's "current" features. Yes, Auto Lockout's would be great, but there's more to CM that Auto Lockouts. They (Auto Lockouts) will come, when they come. Until that time comes, I know where the Mute Memory Button is at.

As for testing, I look forward to getting back with @VariableWave & @Kennyc56 (and there were a couple of others, but their names escape me at the moment) for some more testing.

I thought it was settled?
They ended the trial with an agreement which will allow Uniden to use the feature but the patent for the feature is still active and owned by Escort.

I've been checking Uniden's site almost every day, I know it's over kill but one day I figure when I look a new firmware will be waiting for me...lol. Either way the R7 is an awesome RD with out the auto lockouts. I'm used to hitting the memory mute button twice on the smart cord, do it with out even thinking of it.

The newest R7 feature: subconscious-mute. Some say it's even better than auto-mute. ;) :rofl:
I'm supposed to be an advanced and experienced user.
I'm ashamed to admit I have frequently been duped by a BSM as being a door opener, and subconscious mute it before the brain catches up with a "aaaah fucc!".
Worse when I'm constantly changing detectors to evaluate their behaviors.
Now I'm gritting my teeth, clenching the steering wheel, do I? Or don't I?

I know what you're saying. Nice thing is you can always delete the mute memories if you feel you have something that shouldn't be in memory. I just cleared mine a few days ago knowing now that I had several bsm falses saved in memory before I got the R7 tweaked where she is quiet now. I did have a real Ka hit the other morning going to work. Hit me head on with almost full scale, figured it was a fluke. Well it keep chirping off and on as I went over some hills so I knew I must have a real LEO somewhere. Sure enough a few miles later there was a big blue taho with a pretty shield on the drivers door sitting at an intersection turning around headed back the other way, it was a state motor carrier.

And a part of me thinks that the “coming soon” thread was just created to get people excited and drive up R7 sales for a particular vendor (or two).

Not accusing anyone, just thinking out loud.

There’s really no reason for Uniden not to release it as an optional “Beta” firmware release since they supposedly already released it to several people for “testing.”

Why not slap it on the firmware download page as give everyone else a chance to try it out as well? No harm really since Uniden allows you to roll back firmware updates.
