How to update firmware for anyone who doesn't want to spend 15 mins researching (windows 10):

Download below
Newest 1.35 firmware .BIN download - https://www.rdforum.org/threads/108504/
Uniden R Series SW Download Tool (R7_20201013.zip file) Install the program, disregard the old firmware - https://www.uniden.info/download/index.cfm?s=R7
USB to UART Bridge Driver (if needed) https://www.silabs.com/developers...cp-drivers

Plug in the usb cable to your windows 10 pc. It should chime that a device was connected. Windows likely wont have a usb driver. Under "Device Manager" in windows, There will be a device called USB to UART Bridge and will likely be open with an icon stating no driver is installed. Update the driver by pointing it to the unzipped driver folder and it should install. Next run the program,it should automatically read the firmware (mine was 1.33). Click open under download file and point it to the 1.35 bin file and click start download at the bottom.
This is no easier or difficult to use than the R3. Both are excellent detectors, but the big difference is this R7 has the arrows. They aren't meant to be plug-and-play, so do yourself a favor and head over to Vortex Radar and read up on his configuration page to better understand all the settings.

That's because patent for arrows expired.

I'm a rookie when it comes to radar detectors... this will be my first one. Is this good for beginners or would you rather recommend the R3?

Get this. A detector without arrows can be frustrating and be a bigger distractor from the road.
