    It does everything it was designed to do... it clear...the arrows are not only shown but also made known via voice the color variations are on point...and the ability to pick up threats at a distance that gives you time to make the necessary adjustments

    Best range and the ability to turn off the frequencies not used around your area. I never have a false alarm and it tells you which direction the signal is coming from. Excellent product

    I previously owned the R3, which was amazing but it was missing arrows. This a very good product, range is even better than the R3. Works great here in Washington with the state patrol using Ka 33.8 gets a detection from a long ways away and has saved me multiple times. Overall great product definitely the best detector on the market.

    Well I upgraded from the R1 and couldn't be more happy. This radar detector is the king of all detectors. Range is unbelievable and the arrows make it 5 stars. I've owned every brand of detector from whistler to escort starting back in the 80's. Hands down the best!!

    The range of this detector is amazing. Alerted me of Ka radar 90 seconds from LEO heading in opposite direction while doing speed limit 65 mph, so theoretically got the first blip about 3 miles away. It's quite a bit bigger than the R3 it replaced but I like the bigger display. The arrows are great - it's real nice knowing where the radar sources are! Pricey, yes, but I figure I'll be using this thing for years anyway and just one save makes it more than worth it.

    Huge leap in radar detector performance

    My family has used many radar detector models since the 80's, from the original boxy Escorts and Passports to the more recent 8500-9500 models, Redlines and Valentine V-1. The Redline had incredible range and the V-1 was very scienced out and intuitive. The quantum leap in performance and customization with this R-7 is real and can't be understated! This truly lives up to the hype and is one purchase I am 100% glad I made. One drive with this and my son and I were on the way back to Best Buy and he purchased one for himself....it is truly that good! Get off the fence because this is as close to a sure thing that you can get.

    Best radar on the market

    This is the best windshield mounted radar on the market as far as functionality and performance. If your on the fence about it, just get it. This radar has directional capabilities through the use of arrows. The arrows indicate the direction the radar signal is originating from. The benefit here is that one can quickly determine if the radar source is in front of, behind, or to the sides of their vehicle. This is something that, once experienced, is hard to live without. There are other detectors that offer similar range / sensitivity but they will leave you guessing as to where the radar truly is. For the benefit of the arrows alone it is worth the extra expense to get the R7. The range is outstanding and the display can show up to 4 independent sources of radar simultaneously. This is helpful in determining if there is more than one radar source in an area that may normally have a false alert. The built in GPS functionality allows you to mark known false alert areas so the radar will not go off when driving by the same source or radar. Think automatic doors that may set off a detector, those can be locked out and are location specific. I have not had any issues with blind spot detectors on passing cars setting off the detector. Uniden has exceptional filtering capability in their detectors for this. Some other brands of detector or lower piced / older models will give false alerts when a blind spot detection equipped vehicle is nearby. The R7 largely doesn't have this issue. Uniden also rolls out firmware updates that truly improve the function of the detector and provide exceptional support if needed.
