Best radar detector reviews 2021: what are the top radar detectors for beating a speeding ticket?
Updated: 1-6-2021 by Veil Guy
Despite COVID-19 and the subsequent lock-down of our economy, the radar detector manufacturers continue to continue to crank out, ever better radar detectors. Just in the first six months, drivers have been presented with two new appetizing radar detectors. As this pandemic rolls on into 2021, I suspect people will continue to travel by cars than airplanes and after a long lull, police appear to be issuing tickets to speeders with greater frequency, perhaps to make a short-falls in municipal budgets.
Uniden R7 Review: Veil Guy Reviews Uniden’s Best Radar Detector
The new Uniden R7 Reigns Supreme in Performance

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.
Uniden R7 versus MultaRadar MRCT/MRCT Photo Enforcement Speed Cameras
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 Side View
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.

Unless you have been living on Mars and haven’t had an Internet connection back to Earth you already know the Uniden has taken the radar detector industry by storm last year with the release of their top of the line models, the Uniden R3 and Uniden R1. Both of these radar detectors have shaken up the industry in a big way and Uniden, all by themselves, have redefined what we all thought was achievable in radar detection performance and filtering.

Best Radar Detector Reviews 2016 Introduction
To save you time, I’m providing a summary overview of each of the radar detectors that I am including in my list along with the pros and cons of each radar detector.
For those of you interested in reading a more in-depth review of each radar detector, I have provided links to those reviews as well. Like our best radar detector review 2016, this list does not include radar detectors that are no longer being manufactured or being being phased out in the near future.
