Veil Guy’s Uniden R7 Review

Introduction to the Uniden R7 Review

In the Spring of 2017, Uniden took the radar detector industry by storm with the introduction of two class-leading radar detectors, the Uniden R3 and the Uniden R1.  These two radar detectors quickly established themselves as performance leaders and became big sellers, particularly the Uniden R3.

Fast forward two years, Uniden has upped their game with the introduction of the Uniden R7, a GPS-enabled, dual antenna radar detector with arrows, following in the footsteps of the Valentine 1, the Escort Max 360 (now discontinued), and the Escort Max 360c.  While the V1 was the first directional radar detector, it has remained relatively unchanged in its 28 years and does not incorporate GPS.  The Uniden R7 is closer to the Escort Max 360c since that detector is also GPS-enabled.

Does the new Uniden R7 measure up to the challenge?

The new Uniden R7 has the ability to detect MultaRadar photo enforcement speed cameras when enabled in the configuration menu. We’ve tested a number of different radar detectors with these very hard to detect forms of K-band radar with varying degrees of success.

So, when we received one of a handful or pre-release Uniden R7s, we were interested to see how well the Uniden R7 actually did when faced with one of these systems. We selected one particular location that is especially challenging on radar detectors that are claimed to detect MRCT & MRCD because not only are there two systems (each facing different directions) but they are straddled by two K-band speed signs.

Uniden R7 Radar Detector is Uniden’s answer to the Escort Max 360 & Valentine 1

The Uniden R7 radar detector is Uniden’s answer to the Valentine One and Escort Max 360 and will soon be available to those looking for a sensitive gps-enabled dual antenna high performance radar detector with arrows.  Unlike the Uniden R3 and Uniden DFR9 radar detectors, at least for the moment, the GPS-enabled Uniden R7 will not be available in a non-gps variant.
