I have no idea what happens when you get K and MRCD you want locked out in the same location.
K gets priority and ignores MRCD?
Detector is confused and you lock/unlock K but never get to MR?
I would watch the K frequency and see what happens manually trying this.

How about turn K completely off??
Then only get the MR alert, lock it out, then turn K back on?
Just to see if the MR lockout is working....

Do you guys use the MRCD Quiet Ride feature?
That would mute the noise under the set speed like it does with K band.
Also, I'm wondering if signal priority feature plays any part in how your lockouts are handled.
Try different priorities K/Ka/MRCD and see if lockout behaviour changes.
Make sure Ka lockouts are turned back on after updating and factory reset.
Will double-check the settings later! Thanks!

The amount of driving many are doing on Highway mode now, and finding it acceptable is stunning.
Are CX-9 confirmed by behave like CX-5?
I've turned off MRCD to go hunting for offenders so I can try out the on/off trick.
Takes some stealth not to look like a crazed stalker following soccer mom around for a time. :p
I set mine to highway along with MRCD turned on at your suggestion to get better range for the auto lockout feature. Although I don't do much driving anymore, my R7 has been much quieter with these settings as far as BSM falses go (and updating to 1.35)

I've only been running K Narrow for the MRCD trick to work.
I don't see how that would change your outcome, but hey, who knows.
My settings for success: (Note I did most of this on firmware 133, but it appears 135 has been similar for me)
K Narrow
K Filter On
TSF On
MRCD On
Rear Horn 80%
Both K Blocks Weak
Advanced 40% when not on open highway
All POP modes off
Quiet Ride 30 mph
MRCD QR On
Thanks for this DC!
I wasn't that far off, but I had been K Wide, Rear Horn 100%, and POP modes on.

This does seem to fix the CX-5 falses. I did some substantial highway driving yesterday, and you do still get the occasional K false. It's not *awful* but I did eventually get tired of it. Damn BSMs.

I tried this hack. There is no MRCD in my area. I can’t speak to if it cut back on BSM, but it definitely increased false alerts showing up as MRCD. I have turned MRCD off now.
Hopefully Uniden explores this and is able to exploit the magic sauce in the hack to cut back on BSM without having to leave MRCD on.

What have you found causing these MRCD falses? I have only had a couple and I think they were only from Ford work trucks.

I've been using this trick for a few days now and it seems to really work well. I have only received one MRCD false, and it was a stationary false in an area where my R3 and V1G2 normally false to K Band. A quick lockout took care of that.

So far though, I have passed many CX-5s with no alert. The same cannot be said for my V1G2 and DFR6.

Me too--I get a few falses and I no clue what from! I usually get 24.081 as a false--Funny thing is If I head toward base and Im a good 2-3 miles from the gate (straight shot) my MRCD is full blast even thru the gate and a good mile in--No idea what is setting it off, I wish we could Manual lockout MRCD but cannot at this time!!

You can manually lockout MRCD if you have "X, K, Ka" lockouts enabled.

I’m not sure specifically. I’ve found at least 3 stationary falses. I wasn’t able to lock them out because I don’t want to enable KA lockouts. It’s been quiet as a mouse since I turned MRCD off.

Just received the R7 ... Updated the Firmware to 135, but had an Interesting driver issue with the Silicon Motion bridge. It could be that I use SM for other parts. After a reinstall of the driver all worked well.

I will be testing and let you know what I find.
Just a note, the R7 came with 129 installed.

After testing the setting with MRCD on and off ... the R7 was quite as mouse. No alerts with the CX-9. I will play with all the settings and see what happens, but color me happy that it's working great.

Thanks!

What you have going on sounds different than what others have been saying.
I don't know what could be happening.
Double check that your lockouts are still set to X/K/Ka. If you did any resets it would revert back.
Also have TSF on for the traffic sensors.
Maybe because you have K band and MRCD at the same time, the detector is only locking out and unlocking K band as priority, leaving MRCD alone?
Hard to guess.
The R7 may be falsing MRCD from having too many K Bands at once, though that's more rare.
Watch all the frequencies and All Threats bogey counter and share more information and maybe some better ideas will come forward from others that have seen this.
All I got is check settings....
When I go through that area again I will make some notes.... will pass with mrcd off and note k band and then Mrcd on.... I do know that on K band there picks up multiple signals.... I double checked settings and that is not an issue.. also have tsf on. It is a puzzler since escort does not false but both unidens go bat crazy

Check your K band segments for Uniden and Escort, do you have K Wide on? That will pick up more signals than Escort K default 1,2,3.
Also, Escort highway or auto mode?
Uniden Highway, Advanced%, or City?
And Escort lockouts where there are multiple signals tend to lockout large segments of K Band for a large area.
Uniden you will need multiple lockouts to cover a small area.
I'm interested if you lockout all the K signal there, and if turning MRCD back on makes it alert again....

New video: TWO R7 135 & 137 International vs. CX-5
I cycle MRCD on/off firmware 135. Which wasn't too horrible until close. But MRCD On makes a difference.
International firmware 137, with 24.123, 24.124 K Block, totally blocks the Mazda, and alerts very strongly with K Block off.

So the international version has a k block that will completely block a strong alert at a frequency where leo radar could be centered. No thanks.

Agree. With Raptors being in the rotation where I am.... this version of the international FW is not something I can afford to run.

I too got punished by a Mazda on a long country back road commute to work. Turned on MRCD and the R7 is quiet. Well-done @DC Fluid

My R3s have been 95% immune to CX-5s on v1.50. Occasionally I’ll see a punch through at a stop light if I’m sitting in their blind spot. I moved up to v1.54 recently so if I see alerts from Mazda’s I’ll try turning MRCD on.
I picked up a Mazda with 1.54 on my R1, but just one so far. Zero Mazdas on 1.37.

I've got a 2nd gen 2017 CX5 running an R7 on 135 with occasional rear antenna falsing at 24.123-24.124. Need to check my settings too confirm K% and rear balance, but I'm running MRCD on as recommended. It's mostly quiet. Going to check DC's other thread to see if there's anything I can do to make it better.

Thank you for the find @DC Fluid !

@Vortex if you need a CX5 to test against, I suspect I'm within 20 minutes of you.
