No sir! It wasn't you I was thinking of at all. Haven't there been some differences between guns though? With the Genesis being the among the nastiest?
Yes! These Genesis II's are the V1G2's Kryptonite!

If you try hitting it with K band I/O turning KV off makes very little if any difference! That was one of the first things we tried. It will pick up every single BSM for miles however!
I’ll have to see how much truth there is to that, still being in Chicago. I split the city going down 90 twice a day; its a joy!

I never stopped commuting, but now others are back on the road! Looks like I’ll give KV off a go for the hell of it 🤪

I’ve got all the BSM you want but little noise driving with a G2! What’s GPS?

@Brainstorm69 did a video with it off, it was a joke! He had to pull over and turn it back on! I figured I could get away with it in my area, WRONG! LMAO!

Cool Kenny! I’ll give it a try too, if it’s rough I’m going back to default settings. They work great! 🇺🇸

Better have a fire extinguisher handy my friend! I can't imagine the fun you'll have with no KV in Chicago!

We need more truth around here! Folks, the G2 ain’t perfect, but understand what’s going on for $500 is insane!

I welcome pointing out the negatives (some K I/O stuff) in an informative manner, which only helps improve the experience for everyone - American made firmware upgrades 🇺🇸! Let’s face it, Valentine Research has a kickass track record.

Enough of that, credit where credit is due! Thanks for the testing Rags!!!

And damn, the G2 out-sniffs the R7 again! How’s the G2 do that and filter so well?! The R7 is chatty 💥📢😭
The R7 and RL360C are not slouches. The RL360C is similar to the V1G2 with BSM rejection, the R7 with the latest firmware is very livable as well (I just wish it wasn't so adept at sniffing out door openers)

If I were facing a lot of selective K I/O K band, I would probably choose the R7 then the V1G2. The RL360C wouldn't even be an option in that case IMHO.

If VR fixes the reaction time issue on K band, it would be a no brainer. Same goes for the RL360C (it appears to have the best sensitivity on K band from what I see)

Like the G2! I really like that I can get that range using logic mode and have things quiet audibly, in the city. That’s pretty dope!

Be a sport, run it in A mode like I did with KV off! LMAO!

The R7 and RL360C are not slouched. The RL360C is similar to the V1G2 with BSM rejection, the R7 with the latest firmware is very livable as well (I just wish it wasn't so adept at sniffing out door openers)

I can’t disagree, as it’s fair to say my commute has excessive noise. My drive will make RDs hearts literally stop for seconds… talking to you Uniden 😘

The problem I have with the R7 is that you turn on MRCD for an unintended bonus, and lose the intended functionality

I give Uniden props for having livable MRCT filtering and detection capabilities depending on what R and firmware you’re using. It can be useful in Chicago and it’s cool. But then there are databases for stationary I guess.

I enjoy the guts of the R7 but find it lacking (outdated in filtering) for my tougher commute; I sweat it out with my manual at times.

I respect the R360 for what it is, but imagine it’s limited out the gate with that DSP chip. That’s my long-term look with just dealing with K noise. Pretty interesting deal inside and the best modern W/S mount Escort has made! If they didn’t close the CA plant I’d buy one!

Well said on the G2 & Redline, as the further they get refined the harder it is not to buy one.

But, but, the G2 has very short K band C/O detection. Did you rig this test!? Maybe it wasn't my imagination that my G2 has done a good job against the K band threats I face? Glad I don't have to face @VariableWave or @Kennyc56 with K band. But in celebration of this testing and the update I'm gonna get faced!


All, when @Kennyc56 and I did K band testing, and other bands, see this thread. The V1G2 is not near sighted.... it is the instant response it has against. Face me on this, if I was a LEO treating one as always running a Detector, hutum, lidar, you be 92% screwed. I am not testing you how, but R series, the original V1G1, and Whistler CR series, bests the V1G2 in seeing select K world on 4.1021 and 4.1023 that brought this up.
Post automatically merged:

Doing a Dec Gen II series vs Falcon HR, is night and day. I can clock a car and lock with one gun before the V1G2 even sees it. With K Verifer off, maybe the V1G2 will pull it out of it @ss that oh wait, did I see, beep, then off. This was on 4.1023.... soon to test with now released May 2021.

Thanks for the info! I don’t think anyone’s really missed this general note mentioned by many, any chance they get lol.

Interesting and predictable how the comment section goes with the G2!

Love this 90 degree testing @Buz encouraged, the G2 always brings in a crowd from both angles.

I guess it surprised a few 😂
