Let’s take a look at how to use your new Uniden R8, what all the buttons and menu options do, and how to configure your R8 for optimal performance and minimal false alerts. (Last updated May 2023.)
This guide is current as of firmware 1.27. You can download the latest firmware by using Uniden’s update software. Uniden continues to update and improve the R8 and as features are added or changed, this guide will be updated accordingly. You can also reference the Uniden R8 manual to learn more. This guide will explain things even further.

The Uniden R8 (purchase here) improves upon the performance of the already strong Uniden R7 by adding a new dual LNA design as well as an upgraded condenser lens in front of the horn. I’ve been really curious to see how much better the R8 performs and so I headed back to my usual red barn test course to test the R8 against all the top contenders on both K band and Ka band.

The Uniden R8 is an impressive new radar detector. It’s been my daily driver since November and I’ve been enjoying it so much that even after finishing beta testing and creating this Uniden R8 review, I continue choosing the R8 as my go-to radar detector of choice.
The Uniden R8 is now available for pre-order in very limited quantities (more detectors will be available after the first initial batch) and so I wanted to go ahead and share my personal experiences and test results with the R8, as well as some reports from other fellow beta testers.

Today at CES, Uniden announced the new Uniden R8 radar detector. I’ve been daily’ing it for the past few months and I’ve been liking it overall. My full review is coming, but let’s take a quick look at the R8, especially including its new improvements over the R7.
When the R8 goes on sale later this year, it’ll be a very strong contender for best radar detector on the market.

If you have a Uniden R4 (purchase the R4 here), you can customize its settings to get better performance, filter out more false alerts, change the display color to match your vehicle’s interior, and further tweak it based on what’s best for you.
There’s no universal “best” settings for everyone since what’s best for you depends on both where you drive and your own personal preferences. That’s why they gave us options. 🙂
In this guide, I’ll explain all the different features and settings to help you better understand your R4. At the very bottom of this article you’ll find my general recommended settings as well as the settings I run on my personal R4. You can use these settings as a starting point and then customize them further based on what’s best for you.
Note: This guide is current as of firmware 1.29 and will be updated when new firmware updates are released (Last updated September 2023.)
