The new Uniden R1 is Uniden's newest radar detector having identical performance to the more expensive Uniden R3, but without GPS functionality.

Having more than 12-times the capture distance of a police radar gun, the Uniden R1 provides performance exceeding the range of all other manufacturers' top performing radar detectors for considerably less money and along with the Uniden R3, is currently the most sensitive detector we've ever tested.

The result is that the R1 will provide you with ample warning of instant on K and Ka band radar miles away.


One of the main benefits of this Uniden model is that it provides industry class-leading filtering to K-band automotive collision avoidance and lane departure systems so common today as well as GPS lockout of known stationery false sources of radar.

Easy Advanced Programming

Programming your Uniden radar detector for the conditions you drive is easy. Just press the menu button and you can select from various different options that include the sensitivity, the filtering, the brightness of the display and more.

Included Accessories

Your Uniden detector comes shipped to your door with everything you need including two windshield mounts--unique to Uniden--a 12-volt accessory power cable with USB data port, carrying case, and an Uniden instruction manual.

Great radar detector November 17, 2017
Reviewer: Adam Van Horn from Charleston, SC  
Pros: extreme range is real. There are a lot of times that I slow down and a good bit of time goes by before I see the cop. I am very confident in this radar detector.

Cons: I get a lot of false readings on K band. It doesn't matter if I am on the highway or in town. The detector seems to pick up a lot of tractor trailers.

Overall, it's an excellent device. I would highly recommend.

Customer Support-The BEST November 9, 2017
Reviewer: Reid Sargent from woodinville, WA United States  
Mike at RadaBusters kept me in the loop regarding my backordered Uniden. Actually, he did more than just keep me in the loop. He actually cared about what was going on and was very apologetic when he didnt need to be. Great guy. Props to RadarBusters for having such a quality customer interface.
It makes a difference!!
