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.
