Welcome on board.

Until Uniden NZ officially release a new firmware update, and/or a means of converting onto the international platform, you're going to be stuck with the R7 NZ firmware version. I can update the R7 NZ gps database to my 2.24 version, but that won't give you the same gps features as the R7 International.

Perhaps I should also clarify, the R7 137 international version doesn't have Auto-lockouts like the latest R7 US 135. However, as can be demonstrated here, it doesn't need them. K band sensitivity and alerting is improved on 137 without needing auto-lock outs:


Auto-lock outs really only work for people who drive locally, as it takes a minimum of 24 hours before the lock outs actually become active. Anyone driving long distances, and/or who doesn't like K falses is not going to find the US 135 implementation of K muting really works for them. In the US, people seem tolerant of much more K falsing. Therefore segmentation like the R7 NZ and as perfected on the R7 International (fully user definable) is really the way to go in countries where only a small part of K band is actually used for enforcement purposes.
