    You should have warranty through visions no? *If I remember correctly that's where you bought it. I bought mine as a refurbished unit through them and there was warranty on it as I recall. I presumed it was a returned unit that was gone through to be re-sold. I figured having been gone through there was a good chance it would be in proper working order, maybe better chance than one that had just rolled off the production line. And, not to rub any salt in the wound, but it was at a greatly reduced price.*

    If you poke around the net the r1/r3 (same sensitivity just gps chip or not) are one if not the top rated detectors out there I believe. *

    I have seen a few of the construrction sign trailers with radar to not set off the alert till I"m very close. Maybe the way it's aimed or an issue with the hardware. I doubt they get checked as often as a unit in a cruiser.

    I've been in touch with Visions. Sounds like they were going to send it out for service but their email says refund. So that's good news.

    Talked to Alex at kmph about the radenso line but they don't have earphone plugin and he says the unidens cant be beat.. Another guy I know runs an Escort on his bike and reviews show them to be strong. I lose faith in a brand when I've had a dud but I'll probably stay with the r1 considering how everyone elses work.

    I'm more than happy with my Valentine 1 with bluetooth optional module. I just run the app on my phone, and it beeps in my ears through my Cardo. I used to run it with a Sena 20s as well. Works very well, and I send it in every 2 years for an update. The update is $50. They clean it, test it, and update it to the latest. It filters out most junk and I've created the sweeps that I need based off of rdforums as well.

    Thanks SnoDragon. Good info. They did send my r1 back to uniden. I've yet to hear back. I will look at the Valentine if I decide to pull the trigger on another detector.

    I'll be curious what they report back on your r1. When I was in my researching craze for a detector I recall the valentine is a top performer. I narrowly missed out on one second hand and I'm sure I would've been very happy with it too.*

    After a month of waiting for mine to come back I emailed a query. No explanations were given but they dispatched a brand new one to me.

    Disappointing but not surprising to hear of the lack of communication in this day and age of useless people not giving a fuck. Now it'll be interesting to hear if you find the newer one more effective or not.*
