Just configured and installed R7. Fun times.
Original Redline officially retired after 13 years!
I'm still waiting for perm mount and will hardwire in the next week.

Looks good! I'm sure you'll enjoy it like the rest of us do.
I'm guessing they don't enforce the nothing on windshield law?

Nope
Post automatically merged:

I haven't yet removed the rear mounted R1, and I noticed today with weak rear Ka 34.7 that the R1 acquired well before the rear R7 alert. I'll need to do a rear test in the stew zone with only 1 powered up at a time

I've never seen it enforced. I mean, they might, if you are dumb enough to put something right in the center of your field of view. But a lot of people have dashcams nowadays and those are typically put up high where they don't interfere with the driver's vision very much, if at all (my Blackvue is hidden behind the rear view mirror in one of my cars and I cannot even see it in my usual seated position).

Is the rear antenna on the R7 the same sensitivity as the front? I'm going to test the rear R7 against my R1 today
lots of test posted, usually rear has 1/2 the range of front antenna.

can’t wait to see the stew test

Oh man, great to see you and congrats on the upgrade! That Redline of yours deserves a gold watch or something for a lifetime of faithful service. :p

Well that's not what I expected, however it's workable in the real world since the closing distance from behind would be a snail's pace compared to the front.

would be a good test to run stew course with rear antenna facing forward mounted on rear window. should be easily setup since you have wiring for rear mount.

also could compare to rear antenna facing forward mounted on front windshield.

Is that a stand alone GPS unit in the pic? I still have one for when I go out West and run into cell phone dead zones. At least Waze saves the route so, it's not dependant on cell service but, if I need to change to a new destination, I can do so, with the gps. I know you can upload google maps too but, I just don't feel like bothering with it.

Anyway, hope you're enjoying the new R7!

Garmin. It saves the day a lot - went to Death Valley a month ago and zero mobile data available. On long trips using a phone is problematic.

I had on old Garmin and to get new maps it would have been $99 and it wouldn't even be able to store the whole U.S. so, I ended up ditching that one for a 5.5in Garmin Drive 55 for $139 (includes lifetime map updates too). The screen resolution is better than the 6.95in 65 and otherwise the same thing. The 55 is quite the upgrade from my old one from like 2008!

I'm glad they are still making them in the age of smartphones!
