OK, for those of you who are up late tonight, here is a midnight snack! I'm going to have to apologize ahead of time. This isn't going to live up to TXCTG's normal standards for presentation, but I know everyone wants to see these results, and I am incredibly busy at work right now, so I don't really have enough time right now to do it up right. Again, sorry about that.

But since I did get my Redline EX Saturday morning, @Jag42 and I wanted to get some testing done asap. We tested the Redline EX against both the old Redline, and the newest King of Range, the Uniden R3. We had some things we wanted to test about the R3 also.

1. R3 with 1.28 fw versus 1.21 fw (nearly original). I wanted to see if the new fw has the same range as the old stuff.
2. K-band in Hwy vs. City
3. Does City mode affect Ka range (since that has been an issue raised lately)

We tested on one of our favorites, the Waco Pioneer course. You can see more details about it in write-ups of other test we have done there.

For the K-band testing, the radar gun was pointed straight down the course. [EDIT: Note that for RLEX Auto mode testing against K band, the GPS functionality was turned off, so those are probably worst case results in Auto mode]. For all Ka band testing, the radar guns were angled at 60 degrees across the road. We wanted to make things challenging, rather than having every detector max out the course. So I do want to make this point once more - these tests were challenging by design, you will not necessarily see this much separation in the real world on every detection!!!

The Results

First table by detector, second table by rank (first to last), and graph by rank, first to last. I also have to apologize for how the graphs turned out - Excel doesn't like having the huge descriptions of the settings.

[HR][/HR]As always, remember this is just one test. I expect there to be more coming soon as other members get their Redline EXs. Make sure to look at them all to get a true picture of the Redline EX's performance.

As always, you guys rock and the way you were able to get out there and test the new redline right away is just beyond awesome.

We'll have to wait for more tests but these numbers are showing a so not promising redline EX. The worst range of all with the highest price tag. Way to go Escort!

Awesome effort !!
So pleased you baselined the original firmware and checked the City 1&2 influence !!
This platform has so much potential once they get it dialled in !!
Cheers from down under !!

Hows the ghosting with 1.28 in day to day running ??

Great job on the testing, especially with such short notice! Looks like total dominance by Uniden! It is interesting to see the difference that the new firmware makes.

My CC is safe from the RLex. This is not looking good. I wonder how escort will spin this. Once again many thanks TXCTG.

BTW, I should mention that I had the GPS stuff turned off for the Redline EX in the K-band testing, so I believe the Auto mode results are basically for full strength Auto mode - no dynamic speed-based sensitivity adjustments. At least I think that's how it works.

[MENTION=9768]Brainstorm69[/MENTION] Sweet!! Nice job--I was staying up to see results would get posted, no I can go to bed lol......

Looks like the EX as a little worse than the Redline, and well the Uniden just Kicks ASS!! You did not say but were you running with the KA filter OFF??
Looks like City-2 puts a damper on KA as well

Correct. Ka filter was off. Sorry I didn't mention that. I was in a hurry.

Re City 2 - we think we found a bug, since it's not supposed to affect Ka range.

Great work! I'm not surprised to see the R3 win in general, but I am a bit surprised to see the Redline EX lag a bit behind the original Redline.
