Here’s a quick run-through of the 5 changes and improvements that 1.24 brings:
Maximum Volume Level Increased
Some people complained that the R7 wasn’t loud enough at maximum volume so now the volume can go even higher. Instead of going from 0-6, the volume levels can now go from 0-8.
Arrow Voice Bug Fixed
There was a bug with voice alerts where sometimes only the direction was spoken, but not the radar band, or it would keep repeating the same alert. Now voice alerts should work properly when detecting and alerting to a signal.
Simultaneous radar and RLC/speed cam alert bug fix
When detecting a speedcam or redlight camera simultaneously while detecting a radar signal, the R7 would previous skip alerting to the radar signal. Now the detector will alert to the speedcam / RLC ahead and then resume alerting to the radar signal.
K Block bug fixed
K Block is a feature that helps the R7 filter out false alerts from Hondas and Acuras. There was a bug where punchthroughs would sometimes happen and you’d get an alert anyways. This was the case if MRCD was enabled. Now the K Block feature will work properly while MRCD is enabled.
Power off by press and holding power button for 2 sec
To power off the detector, you now have to press and hold the power button for 2 sec. This is to avoid accidental poweroffs if you accidentally press the power button while messing with the detector or changing settings.
