I've searched high and low, does anyone know of a waterproof cover/case is even available? R7 used on a motorcycle. In the past I've just poped it off the magnetic mount and sliped it into my jacket pocket (water proof), but I'd rather just be able to leave up.

I use a little elastic topped plastic pot cover in a small size. If it's behind a screen it'll survive the wind blast, and you can throw it on in seconds.

Good idea, I'll give it a try ~ when I don't need it!! Maybe one of those free hotel shower caps would work also with a rubber band over it all....

A plastic locknlock container would work, Velcro the detector to the bottom of it. You could even toss a Weather Pack connector in the middle of the power cable for a nice weatherproof quick disconnect outside of the container, same connectors are used in the hull of jetskis, 100% waterproof. Just seal up the cable hole in the container with some clear RTV or similar.

Make the shower cap a floral one. Style is never wrong.

If you did go this route, I'd recommend making the lid the base, easier to see the detector and you would have easier access to everything. You could even go so far as deconstructing the detector guts and mounting the display in a location you can actually see like on "top" of the container.

That's starting to get really complicated. I could see the display through a plastic cover. If he guts his R7 he can't use it in a car if he needed to.

Hmm, it's been quite some time but I used to use an old Escort on my motorcycle with this: Radar Box Weather-Proof Enclosure from Legal Speeding – Morrison Motorcycle Mounts & More (morrisonmotomounts.com) I didn't use that company, and maybe not even that particular product as this was years ago, but the one I used was very similar to that one. I mounted it under my front forks and wired up a remote display that I mounted inside of my gauges. For sound I used a device that had a very loud siren when I got a hit, I can't remember the brand but I'll try and find it. Used it this way for years and years. You can see the box mounted under my front forks in the pic. (and yeah that's a younger me).
