The DFR7 is a definite must-have. Yes, it's not the latest unit anymore, but this unit performs really well and hasn't let me down. While I'm newer to the radar detector scene, I'm pleased with the functionality this thing has. One feature I really like is the "Auto Mute." While it doesn't exactly 'mute' the audio alert, Auto Mute lowers the volume after a couple seconds of the initial alert. Very convenient, especially with passengers. The GPS lockout feature comes in very handy also.
Highly recommend this one.
Also, thanks to Vortex Radar for the recommendation as well as the educational videos.
