Several times I have muted my R7 and minutes after the original has passes the R7 picks up a new and different alert but it is still muted. Today I muted for what appeared to be a BSM signal which when past, several miles later I saw a full blown state trooper and thought his radar gun must have been off. However when I glanced up at the display I had all bars thus he was active. I do use the remote mute cord. I have seen similar events several time today on my drive and had not noticed it in the past if it did occur. Is this a Uniden problem or this users problem. Any ideas appreciated since Friday I have a four day trip and a almost 4000 miles planned.
