Someone needs to make one of these that connects to your phone and automatically reports speed traps to Waze and shares all false alerts. Radar detectors can be much more useful than they've been.

No, the R3 is great. But detecting laser is not. It sure can do that but detecting laser won't help you avoid a ticket (if you're speeding). Only way to beat laser is with a jammer. Detecting laser is pointless as the cop gets your speed in just as much time it takes for the R3 to warn you. He may actually know before that if he aimed at your license plate and only after that it moved up enough to hit the detector on your windshield.
Radar is quite different than laser. That gives you much more time to slow down. The problem with radar is many things out there use radar so it is a bit noisy. You'll have to learn what is a legit cop and what is false in your area.
The R3 is great, probably only inferior to R7 which costs twice as much as this on sale.

Waze only tells the consumer what's been reported by other users of Waze.
A traffic cop can easily move a block down the road if their spot was reported on Waze by someone else.

The radar-detector isn't a cop detector either. It detects if the traffic cop is actively looking for vehicles that may be speeding from very far away(detects the cop before the cop can even see you). Not a perfect system as other people have stated regarding lasers.

tl;dr. Waze is based on other drivers reporting; Uniden R3 is an active detector for things not reported or easily seen. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, in comparison.

I'm assuming because other car BSM's don't use Laser (that I know of). They usually use the K-band frequency.

Agree. I get so many false laser kinda makes it frustrating and useless. I even had mine replaced. I think it's all the new safety systems in the new cars

False laser? Never had one of those. False X and K, yes, all the time. I have my settings as per vortex radar and it works to detect police but it's even better as a Honda/Acura detector. Every couple of miles it's beeping because of those. They are all K band. And other old crap triggers X band. Unfortunately in PA K band is still majority so I can't turn it off. I use advanced mode and lower X sensitivity to 30% and K sensitivity to 70%. Ka at 100%. Better but still beeps a lot so I only use the R3 on road trips. I can't manage the false alerting day to day.

Good point not sure. Was driving in West Texas in middle of nowhere and not many cars around me but maybe it was cars bsm.

Isn't a speeding ticket cheaper than this?
Maybe 1 ticket depending where you are. 2nd ticket, not so much. That doesn't count the insurance premium hit.
