Now that the Uniden R7 has started shipping (and since some places are already sold out and on backorder), let’s take a look at the best places to buy it.
These places are authorized resellers to make sure you get a warranty, have great customer service, offer quick shipping, and are good stores to purchase from.
Tom at BestRadarDetectors.net has been instrumental in bringing us the Unidens in the first place. If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have awesome detectors like the R3 and the R7 and they wouldn’t be as good as they are today. He’s also very active in the enthusiast community, supporting us and making sure we’re taken care of. That’s not easy to do and so I like recommending people to buy through him to support him and reward him for taking care of us.

BuyDig has been awesome at bringing us awesome deals on detectors like the DFR7, DFR9, and GT-360. They even gave away two free R7’s to people who pre-ordered the detector with them and I think that’s really cool of them. They’re good people and I recommend them.

Amazon is almost always a good place to buy radar detectors. Good pricing, awesome return policy, and a great experience. If you buy from Amazon and want to ensure you get the R7 with a warranty, be sure to buy through Amazon.com or a third party authorized reseller like BuyDig, Beach Camera, or GPS & Radar Shop (BRD).

4. Best Buy
Finally, if you’d like to pick up your R7 in person, you can get one from Best Buy. To make sure they have one in stock, you can order one online to reserve it and then pick it up in person.

Finally, if you’d like to save some money and get a used R7, you can either look for one on the Radar Detector Forum classifieds (you’ll need to be a Beginner+ member to see that section) or get a used R7 on eBay. Since it’s eBay, you’ll always want to be a little cautious and buy from someone with a good reputation, but it’s a way to save some cash once used ones start becoming available (as opposed to people selling them for hundreds of dollars over the cost of new since they’re still hard to get).

hi vortex like always great job on the how to with regards to settings and configuration of the r7 . I have tried to order the r7 from Tom (best radar detectors) using your link . but sadly Tom wasn’t willing to ship it outside the USA. so I was left with the option of either placing an order and use the my us shipping address (forward company) which charges a big fee or trying getting it elsewhere where they will be willing to ship it to me directly back then (February) there wasn’t a link to amazon so I ordered from kmph.ca hope it’s the same unit…. just kidding. anyway thanks for your work and your time
Question, just like you did settings for R3. What settings do you prefer in R7?
See my R7 setup guide here: https://www.vortexradar.com/2019/04/how-to-set-up-configure-uniden-r7-radar-detector/
Question: I have an Escort Max 360 (the big black one) and I am deciding should I get the R7 or do you think I am good enough with the Max?
Honestly I think the Max360 is more well-rounded. It has better BSM filtering and Bluetooth, but the R7 has better range. If you find the range lacking you can update. Otherwise the Max360 is a good choice.
I have a hardwire from my Escort 360 can I use this wire to hardwire my Uniden R7?
Hi Vortex! I had to smile when you moved from your MX-5 to the Audi Q5. About three months before, I had moved from a 2008 MX-5 to a 2018 SQ5… (Guess we both like cars with 5’s in them.) Your tests are particularly meaningful for me! At any rate I am considering upgrading from my R3 to an R7, but since immunity from RDD’s is important to me, I’m waiting for that test first. Also, a suggestion: since the face of the R7 is angled, how about a test with the detector slightly off axis, pointed 20 degrees right and left of centerline?
Thanks for your great work! John
Does well the Max 360c and Escort iXc connect with the newer cars (Lexus) with their WIFI?
So long as your car offers up a WiFi hotspot and an internet connection, yep!
Can you tell me please if I can buy the product to Israel?
I don’t believe it’s available outside of North America.
This is Beta? or mass production?
In terms of frequencies, there is a problem to purchase at North America?
Those are the same as in Israel?
I do not cover international usage of American radar detectors. You’ll need to ask someone who is familiar with what you need.
Do you have a good installer in Seattle for laser jammer ?
