R8 OVERVIEW

Uniden’s R8 is a top-of-the-line Radar Detector with a built-in GPS feature. With the R8, you can mark geographical points where you commonly encounter radar transmissions. These can be school zones, red-light cameras, and places where police frequently monitor traffic. You can mark these points so the detector will announce “User mark ahead” when you approach them. Among other announcements, the Voice Notification feature lets you know when you are approaching a radar and what type of radar it is (red light, speed, etc).

ALLOCATING MEMORY
The R8 allows 2000 memory points to be shared between Mute Memory points and User marks. The default allocation is 1000 points each; the most one category can have is 1750 with the other category having a maximum of 250 at the same time. Change this allocation through the Memory Quota menu. The Memory Quota menu lets you allocate memory in 50-point blocks. For example, if you want to add 50 points to Mute Memory, those 50 points are deducted from User Marks. This creates a balancing effect between the two.

AUTO MUTE/AUTO MUTE VOLUME
When the R8 detects a signal, it sounds an alarm at the current volume level for three seconds. After 3 seconds, R8 changes the volume level to the Auto Mute Volume level set in the Menu (see page 23). Regardless of how high Auto Mute may be set, it will never be at a higher level than the actual volume level. For example, if the volume is set to level 5 and Auto Mute Volume is set to level 7, Auto Mute will keep the volume at level 5, the same as the actual volume level. Auto Mute ends 10 seconds after the alarm ends unless:

  • The same signal is detected within those 10 seconds; then, Auto Mute stays on.
  • A different band signal is detected during those 10 seconds; then, Auto Mute turns off and then back on at the current volume level. Auto Mute does not apply to Laser Alert.

LOW BATTERY
The R8 alerts every 30 minutes when the car battery voltage is under 11 Volts. It announces Low Battery and displays a Low Battery alert.

MODES (HIGHWAY, CITY, AUTO, AND ADVANCED)
Uniden’s R8 radar detector operates in two different frequency (X, K, and Ka-band) sensitivity modes – Highway and City. Highway mode is the most sensitive, with maximum detection ranges while on the highway or open road. The city is on the lower end of the detection scale for city driving. City mode reduces sensitivity so that false signals (such as from automatic door openers) are filtered out. Under factory default conditions (X band = off on all modes, K and Ka bands = on), the band sensitivities are:

  • Highway: X, K, and Ka bands full sensitivity.
  • City: X and K bands sensitivity reduced; Ka-band full sensitivity.
  • Auto: Auto mode will switch the R8 between Highway and City depending on the

Auto City Speed menu setting (see page 14). If the driving speed is over the Auto City Speed setting, R8 operates in Highway mode. If it is below the set speed, R8 operates in City mode. Sensitivity is the same as Highway and City settings. If GPS is not connected, R8 automatically operates in Highway mode.

  • Advanced: Adjust the sensitivity level for each band.
  1. Press MENU. The current level and mode display.
  2. Press MENU to scroll through the modes and select Advanced mode.
  3. Press VOL+ to scroll through the Bands and then press MENU to adjust the desired band in 10% increments.
  4. UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 55 When complete, press VOL+ to move to the next mode to adjust.
  5. Press VOL+ to return to the MENU.

MUTE MEMORY
Use Mute Memory to mute known areas of false alarms (such as department store automatic doors). The R8 remembers where you muted the audio (GPS location) and the frequency you muted. It will automatically mute when you travel to that location and the saved frequency is detected; however, if a different frequency is detected, the R8 alerts to that different frequency.

When you press MUTE/DIM or the MUTE button on the power cord to mute audio for a specific location, Mute On displays. While Mute On displays, press MUTE/DIM or the MUTE button on the power cord again to save that GPS location to memory. Mute Memory displays on the screen.

R8 stores 2000 points divided between Mute Memory and User Mark locations. To delete Mute Memory points, press MUTE/DIM or the MUTE button on the power cord while Mute Memory displays. The R8 displays a delete confirmation message; press MUTE/DIM or the MUTE button on the power cord again to confirm. You can also delete Mute Memory points from Menus/Delete All Mute.

OLED DISPLAY OPTIONS
Use the Display Setting menu to determine what displays on the right side of the OLED display. Options are Mode, Scan, and Time.

MODE DISPLAY
Select MODE Display to show the band sensitivity selection on the OLED’s right side (Highway, City, Auto, or Advanced).

UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 56

SCAN DISPLAY

UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 58

POP MODE
In POP mode, the R8 can detect short bursts from radars that are too fast for many other detectors to catch. You can turn POP mode on and off in the Menu system.

QUIET RIDE
This function mutes X and K band radar alarms when you drive under a speed limit set in this menu (up to 90 mph/140 km/h). If X or K band signals are detected, the unit beeps once in volume level one and then goes to volume level zero. Q-Ride flashes in green on the OLED.

UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 59

REAR BALANCE
This feature lets you adjust the X, K, and Ka-band rear radar sensitivity from 100% to 30% in Highway, City, and Advanced modes. If you set the rear balance to 50%, the rear radar’s sensitivity will be half of what the front radar’s sensitivity is. If the front radar is set to 100%, the rear radar will be 50% (half of 100%).

RED LIGHT CAMERA QUIET RIDE
This function mutes red light camera alarms when you drive below a speed limit set in this menu (up to 85 mph or 140 km/h) (see page 16.)

UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 60

RED LIGHT CAMERA POINT DELETE
When you are at a red light camera and an alert displays, you can delete that camera point. Once deleted, the R8 will not alert at that red light camera location again. To delete the RLC Point, press MUTE/DIM on the unit or MUTE on the power cord while the alert displays. A confirmation message displays. Press MUTE/DIM on the unit again or MUTE again on the power cord. Delete Completed displays.

THREATS
The R8 detects up to 4 radar band signals (threats) at a single time. The strongest radio signal is designated as the Priority signal, and its frequency is displayed on the OLED. Alert Display #3 also displays the second strongest signal on the OLED. The other signals (threats) are indicated on the left side of the display. In the following example, 2 K band, 1 Ka band, and 1 X band frequencies are detected. The multicolor rectangles on the left side indicate signal strength.

UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 61

The Priority menu setting determines which type of frequency is displayed on the OLED (see page 18). If Priority is set to Signal priority, the strongest signal displays on the OLED. If Priority is set to Ka Priority, the Ka-band radar signal displays on the OLED.

If the strongest signal is muted, it displays in grey on the left side, and the next strongest signal displays in the main part of the display. If only one signal is detected, the R8 display keeps the current Left Display setting.

UNIDEN R8 Extreme Long-Range Radar Laser Detector 62

USER MARKS (LASER AND RADAR SITES)
With the R8, you can mark geographical points where you commonly encounter radar transmissions, These can be school zones, red-light cameras, and places where police frequently monitor traffic. When you are at the location, press MARK. The R8 announces “User mark logged.” Now, when you approach these points, the R8 announces “User mark ahead.” If there is already a User Mark within a 1,666 ft (508m) radius, you cannot save that specific location as a new User Mark. Press and hold MARK at that location to delete that user mark. The R8 registers up to 2,000 marks split between mute memory marks and user marks. These marks are split at 1750 maximum and 250 minimum between the two mark types.

USER SPEED LIMIT
When you set a speed limit through the menus, the R8 sends an alarm tone if your speed exceeds that speed limit setting. If that happens, the unit announces and displays over-speed warnings.
