There is no one correct answer to your question. It depends on so many factors. Terrain, weather, location/direction, stationary vs moving, traffic, radar band, constant vs instant-on, and more. On a straight, flat road, with no particular issues, it is not uncommon to get an alert well over a mile from the source, and generally you'd expect much more than that. But if you get an off-axis hit, it could be very short. Over time you'd get used to your detector and have better ideas, but in my experience, you'd nearly always have that much time or more with this level of a detector on most bands.

Laser is a different story. Usually if you get a laser hit , it's a ticket notifier function, because the narrow laser beam has hit your car at the time it is detecting it. Doesn't work the same way radar beams do, where a good detector will alert you before the signal will alert the LEO.

Bad deal on the R7 especially, you can get them new at lower than this! Been frontpage deal multiple times in last few months for $375 new.


The R3 isn't a great deal either, last frontpage deal was for a brand new one at $246.

Thumbs down.

Hasn't been on sale in ages? There was just a deal a few months back for a new R7 for $375.

The deal was close to 4 months ago - that's a long time to wait for a deal. Please excuse me for the word "Ages"

If you're getting the R7, I recommend using vortex's settings as a base and tuning it to your liking.
