I had no problem waiting before I saw the “coming soon” post. I’ve forgotten about this update for quite some time.

No you're not by yourself I did the same thing but quickly went back to my R7 due to the unreliability of the RL360c
I'm still rocking the RL, I had 3.5 mile KA CO Monday on US127 here in MI.

I still have R7s in other rides but Damn they never shut up.

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.
Post automatically merged:


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.
100% correct. I own a pellet grill that I was given the option of using beta version of app.Dont think uniden really cares that much,but from I have seen in this industry seems like there is not a lot of concern when it comes to customer. Especially when you consider money spent. Consider that they are making a product that in reality keeps us from being punished for breaking the law and that says all you need to know about the integrity of the manufacturers of these devises . I personally own or owned many detectors and never really expected much from the people that make them Kind of like when you bought pirate boxes for cable systems years ago. Don't expect much and there will be no disappointment. Not a whole lot of integrity in this industry.

Speed limits are generally considered a BS law though that 90% of people break regularly, so it's not the same as if a shady company was making a device to help someone get away with murder.

These are decent-sized companies making these devices, not your brother's buddy's shady uncle.

I expect quality.

More options. Nice!

BSM filtering is priority for me. But it’s nice to know that they are still providing product improvement. Thank you Uniden.

Have any of the beta testers described their experience with auto-lockouts yet? Has it been positive?

I'm going to assume it's positive given that Vortex was considering pulling the R7 from his recommendations prior to the beta, and that a poor implementation of auto-lockouts with the beta would have hastened that.

I don’t think that I would personally assume anything when it comes to radar detectors and firmware updates. 😉

I am holding my tongue out of great respect for Tom, but hopefully it will finally arrive soon, soon, soon.
