The new 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 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.

Good Service And An Even Better Radar Detector! June 26, 2019
Reviewer: George Townsend from North Bend, WA United States  
I had researched top-end radar detectors for awhile after deciding my existing unit was giving too many false alarms due to new car collision-avoidance radars.  I determined that the  R1/R3 were the best units for the money, but when I couldn't find an R3 available at RadarBusters, a quick phone call with them revealed the R3 had too many quality control complaints.  I settled on the cheaper R1 unit and ordered it.  It arrived within a reasonable shipping time from RadarBusters, and after a recent road trip, it performed spectacularly!  No false alarms from other cars and I was able to pick up KA band police radars from an extremely long distance!  Great value and great service from RadarBusters!

Completely satisfied! June 26, 2019
Reviewer: Anthony Buttieri from United States, Texas  
After watching radar busters reviews and reading reviews , I got the R1 to replace my new whistler which I just purchased but is literally unusable due to the consistent false signals from collision avoidance systems in the new cars. The R1 is unbelievable as to how well it filters out all this noise and still hits on the real signals I am wanting to know about. I can't say enough good things about the R1 or radar busters. Completely satisfied!
