Here's a test against a few different models (including a Redline EX):

For certain tests, having the rear antenna in the R7 provides better sensitivity for those situations.

I don't think the R7 has a laser jammer built in (anyone correct me if I'm wrong here), so you would still need a jammer if you wanted to protect against that. One thing that I saw in a review about the R7 was that the BSM (blind spot monitoring) still seems to false positive on various cars and has not been improved since the R3. Also, auto-GPS lockouts are not a thing until the patent expires.
