Hi all, and let us welcome you to our Uniden R3 review, in which we will give you a detailed insight into this nifty and very clever dash or windshield mountable, radar detector unit.
Things have greatly improved since ‘back in the day.’ Radar detection systems of old were really basic models that had a minimal range. And also were not really to be fully relied upon. These older devices could not filter false alerts either.
The Uniden R3 isn’t comparable to the radars of old. The technologies, combined with the special features of modern models, allow them to stand head and shoulders above all other options on the market. In this review, we will point out all the main points, both the positive and – if any- the negatives of this device.
Uniden claims that the R3 model is a flagship contender amongst detectors. And they stand by their statement that the R3 has an unbeatable detection range and the features are ‘top of the hill.’ So, let’s find out if they are correct…
Before we delve into the features of the Uniden R3, let us just comment on the aesthetics of the unit. To start with, this really looks the ‘business’ and is an impressive looking piece of kit, with a professional feel to it. There are a variety of buttons and an OLED display on the facia. The body is colored a subtle black that will not intrude upon the interior of your vehicle.
The R3 uses two, top mounted, strong suction cups that you can position anywhere you like on your windshield. These can be adjusted to hold the unit at multiple angles. Also, this is a light and compact unit. Though not too small as to be unable to clearly see the displays and settings.
Pros And Cons
- The best model in its price bracket.
- Excellent detection range.
- Very sensitive to detected signals.
