REVIEW FAQ ADDITIONAL INFO
 

UNIDEN R8 REVIEW


The new Uniden R8 is Uniden's latest dual arrow directional radar detector which provides directional information.

In our Uniden R8 review, we found the radar detector's performance is significantly improved making the Uniden R8 the most sensitive and longest range detector we've ever tested.

Having more than 16 times the capture distance of a police radar gun, the Uniden R8 provides performance often exceeding all other manufacturers' top performing radar detectors at considerably less money making it a very good value.

The Uniden R8 has the largest color display of any radar detector allowing it to display a wealth of information at the same time, including up to five radar encounters simultaneously, time of day, speed of travel, and direction of travel. Uniden R8 accessories include a hardwire kit for those interested in eliminating the use of the Uniden R8's cigarette power adapter. You can read a detailed Uniden R8 review.

5 of 5 Love it. This is my second. April 12, 2024
Reviewer: BIG? mike from Bull Shoals, AR United States  
I liked my 1st R8 so much bought one for the other vehicle. Have had Escorts for years but Uniden beats them in many ways.

5 of 5 R8 Purchase March 29, 2024
Reviewer: PGE from NM United States  
My experience with Radar Busters was great.  The Uniden works well. I haven’t been able to do an extensive test run yet.  Had a problem with a UPS mis-ship but Radar Busters were right on it and it was only a day later than anticipated
