Uniden R8 Review Introduction
For the last several years I have been crisscrossing the country every three months as I am participating in a clinical trial located on the opposite coast. The total round-trip mileage often exceeds 6000 miles each trip.

Uniden R4 Review Introduction
Back in September of 2021, the owner of RadarBusters and I recently went on a 16,000 mile road-trip throughout large parts of the United States to the Eastern provinces of Canada. Victoria and I had been recently vaccinated so when the prime minister of Canada re-opened its borders to vaccinated citizens with proof of a negative COVID test, we jumped at the opportunity to visit. I’ve been to Canada a good number of times, but for Victoria, this was her first trip there. The provinces we visited included Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and ultimately Newfoundland.
Cobra DualPro 360 Review
Our testing and review leads us to believe that the Cobra DualPro 360 is simply the best on the market, for the money
We first saw the Cobra DualPro 360 when we had visited Cobra’s parent company at their Chicago office. We visited them to hear about and discuss their up-and-coming products at the time, the Cobra Dual Pro 360 and the Cobra Road Scout. The Cobra team also laid out their strategy for 2019.
At the time we felt the challenge for Cobra was going to be overcoming image of the Cobra brand among the radar detector enthusiast community, whose perception is that Cobra radar detectors are not top-tier. Historically, that may have been the case, but no longer and it’s certainly not the case with these two new Cobra detectors. Indeed, we had noted that Cobra did start producing an upscale detector, their first DSP model, the Cobra DSP-9200BT, some three years ago and that it did offer good performance.
Cobra Road Scout Review
The Cobra Road Scout leads me to ask, why don’t all radar detectors have an integrated dash cam?
We first saw the new Cobra Road Scout at Cobra’s headquarters in Chicago, seven months ago. When Cobra’s executives described their new design, we were skeptical at first. But when the Cobra team actually showed us the Cobra Road Scout in person, we had a change of heart not only by the concept, but by the Cobra Road Scout’s novel design.
You see, the Cobra Road Scout is the first device of its kind–a combination dash cam and radar detector, all-in-one.
Uniden R7 Review: Veil Guy Reviews Uniden’s Best Radar Detector
The new directional Uniden R7 Offers Extreme Performance

Veil Guy’s Uniden R7 Review
Update: Read about the all new Uniden R8 radar detector.
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.
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.

Escort Max 360c Introduction
It’s been only a couple of short days since I first wrote about Escort Max 360c radar detector, the first ever to incorporate WIFI. But since that time, I have been able to accumulate some time behind the wheel with the new Max 360, enough so that I feel comfortable in sharing some of my early impressions, which have generally been quite favorable.

Introduction (the C means connected)
Escort is showing to have a habit of doing things, in time, that they say they are not going to do.
A recent example of that was the release of the new stealth radar detector the Escort Redline EX, a replacement to their outgoing Escort Redline. In the case of the EX, Escort maintained that producing an M3-based radar detector with the capabilities of GPS (like the Escort Max series of detectors) was not feasible and would be too large to be practical. Fast forward a couple of years and the engineering team did just that. The sheer size champ goes to the dual antenna Escort Max 360 radar detector, but up until now, it was the Escort Redline EX that took the weight crown.

Introduction to the Escort ZR5 & Escort ShifterMax Add-on Pack
For a number of years, the preferred laser jammer of many enthusiasts has been the ALP system, which has been regarded as the most effective against the Dragon Eye Variable Pulse Rate (VPR) lasers, being able to thwart the most versions of the DE guns. While their circulation is quite limited relative to the more established lidar gun manufacturers, such as Kustom, LTI, Stalker, the potential benefits of this advanced capability has put the ALP on top for many.
