The R3 is newest Uniden model having identical performance to the less expensive Uniden R1, but with GPS functionality.

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

The result is that the R3 will provide you with ample warning of instant on K and Ka band miles away.


One of the main benefits of the R3 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.

Easy Advanced Programming

Programming your R3 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.

Perfect July 16, 2018
Reviewer: Cole Marchlewski from Saint Charles, MO United States  
I've had my R3 for about a week and a half now and it is perfect. EVERYTHING you really need in a sleek and high performing package. I'm buying a blendmount as well to really clean up the look. I love the different sounds you can assign to each band and the color display options are a big bonus. I recommend dropping the extra money on the R3 but the R1 will have the same performance sans GPS.

Best of both worlds July 16, 2018
Reviewer: H. M. Brooks from Lexington, KY United States  
The Uniden R3 radar/laser detector that I ordered from RadarBusters.com arrived, and is performing quite well.  It is the first Uniden radar detector that I have ever owned, and is impressive, sensitivity-wise.  I use it at maximum sensitivity on all bands----whether in town or on the highway.  Of course, using it this way allows for some pickup of X or K-band door-openers and intrusion alarms, but my interest is in maximum range (sensitivity).  I either use it alone or along with my Escort Max 360, which is set to automatically memorize local non-police radar source locations, so I get the best of both worlds-----maximum sensitivity plus some control of extraneous microwave sources locally.

Great Detector !! July 16, 2018
Reviewer: Alan Thiers from San Leandro, CA United States  
I bought the R3 and asked that it be delivered on time as it went to a hotel and I was only going to be there for 1 day. It arrived on time and I set it up right away. WOW!! What a difference over my old Escort 8500 !! Works great ! Should have bought long ago.... I am a happy camper now !

10 out of 10! July 16, 2018
Reviewer: ROBERT HAAS from United States of Texas  
Been using Escort since late 70's when they were introduced (Cincinnati Microwave). Ran my 9500i side-by-side and the R3 is much better IMHO.  Ka alerted much sooner.  K-band? The entire industry is struggling with IVT and this needs some work.  No one has a complete answer to this yet.  Uniden needs to work a bit on their online registration & update interface, it was a little cumbersome.  RadarBusters, INC were all in!  I give them 10 out of 10 on their ordering service!

Superior Detector June 27, 2018
Reviewer: Bones from Suches, GA United States  
I've always had, repaired, and sold Radar Detectors ever since I had my Electronics business while going to post graduate school way back in the Fuzz Buster and Crystal days, probably when Radar Roy was still on the beat.... The sensitivity and rejection is unbelievable for the money especially when filter edges that look like square waves. Uniden R3 has all of the high tech taken care of,nothing out there is this sensitive, so now all they need is to add a few creature comfort features like automatic detected location reporting to a central hub that auto logs the Cop location so everyone can get the data linked via a Satellite SatCom Radio Channel built in....up link data transmitted whenever LTE is present, and the down load data comes via SatCom.  I'd pay more for that feature because that data will tell you where the Laser poppers are too....this way you get early warning automatically. Maybe next time...
