Introduction

Radar detectors have been around a long time, nearly 40 years, and for much of that time the best radar detector was considered to be one that was the most sensitive and alerted to police radar from the farthest distance. A lot has changed in both the best radar detectors and traffic enforcement industries and today as we approach Christmas of 2018, the RF landscape continues to deteriorate, becoming even more challenging for a radar detector to function well. Now more than ever, the best radar detectors have to successfully balance two opposing dynamics: filtering (signal rejection) and sensitivity.

Introduction to the Uniden R1/R3 Review

After putting some serious seat time behind the wheel with the new Uniden R1 and Uniden R3 radar detectors, it didn’t take long for me to realize how spectacular these two detectors are.

It also dawned on me, that I have been wrong all of these years.  Who likes admitting to being wrong?  Well in this case, I do.  Why you ask?  Simple.  It’s because ever since the introduction of the Escort M3 platform of radar detectors–beginning with the Beltronics STi Driver, followed up with the Beltronics STi-R,  Escort Passport 9500ci, and then the Escort Redline–I believed we had essentially reached the limits of radar detection sensitivity.  In other words, I believed if none of the aforementioned detectors alerted to police radar, then a radar signal wasn’t actually there to detect.  I believed Escort had summited the tallest mountain above sea level there is–Mount Everest.

Brief Introduction

I’ve been driving with both the Uniden R3 & Uniden R1 radar detectors in preparation for my formal review and have some very telling police radar encounters.  Particularly noteworthy was several encounters with a couple of Pennsylvania state troopers who ran very low-powered K-band radar at night.

What makes the R3 & R1 especially good in these scenarios:

  • Both the R3 & R1 deliver extreme sensitivity (best we have ever experienced)
  • Quick to detect instant-on police radar
  • Quick to alert to instant-on police radar with minimal processing overhead
  • Very good signal ramp up and decay with excellent latch times
  • Very quick radar band signal differentiation
  • Very good filtering algorithms ensure most alerts are to genuine police radar

These real-world experiences were very telling of the incredible performance that both the R1 & R3 offer, so much so, that I felt it was appropriate to feature them in a new video tutorial highlighting the true value in driving with an ultra-high performance radar detector and how to properly use one when confronted with some very difficult to detect radar encounters.

Introduction to the Uniden R3 & R1 Radar Detectors

For those of us who have been using radar detectors since the late 70s, the name Uniden may ring a bell and you may be asking yourself, “didn’t they used to make radar detectors”?  But perhaps you may not be aware that Uniden has been producing capable windshield-mount models over the course of the last several years, under the proverbial radar.
