Hey everybody! It's a hell yeah from the deep south. OK, so I am totally new to this. In college (2002) I owned a Escort 8500. It was a great radar detector until the power supply on it broke. I was really burned on this as the warranty had just run out on it. So, I decided to never buy another Escort again. I have a CDL license so I really can't get caught speeding in my personal car. (I do not run a radar detector on my school bus.)

That said, I am curious about all of these cars that now have Blind Side Monitoring. Does this set off detectors and defeat the purpose? Are there any detectors that eliminate these false alarms? Everyone keeps talking about having GPS lockout. Well, how do you lockout Blind Spot monitoring? What is MRCD?

I am curious about the Uniden R7 and the new Valentine 1 Gen 2.

Welcome to the RDF!

GPS lockouts is a Patent that Escort owns. In my opinion, they still haven't implemented it correctly IE the way they do it you can later get a ticket because of the lockout. I don't believe there is MRCD in Alabama.

If it were me, I would get the V1G2 or wait for the Radenso Theia.

Loads to read on the Forum. Enjoy!

Yeah guys I am seriously digging the brand-new V1Gen2. That came out of all times, today. Interesting. Yep. I have been watching Vortex on YouTube. Interesting stuff, for sure.

Welcome to RDF! The V1G2 looks solid for sure. I currently use the R7, but am keeping a close on the V1 and may pick one up as well.
