    ok, so if i have one test, you are 100% right, that's all i can base my opinion on.. so I will wait for other test to give more of my opinion on??
    I made sure i didnt make any r3 comments, and i didnt so that ststement was not aimed at me. well other than saying the r3 price has me spoiled, and the range is susperior so far. it doesnt take away from other detectors abilities. since you opened the conversation about waze and escort live, i'll repond, or give you my limited experience opinion. waze is more widely used since escort only caters to escort detectors, but escort live does serve a purpose, and if a person wants to change the settings with the app, that's a good deal too.

    dont see anywhere I said any comments about the pro m compared to the original redline?? so now i'm confused to where this is going..
    1. i said the ex was over priced in my opinion.
    2. ONE test the pro m did better, I have no other test to compare to, so time will tell. i will wait for i dont know maybe 10 test before I give an opinion or an observation??

    I think you may have misunderstood my intent, I wasn't trying to do anything other than provide context for your statements.
    1. I acknowledged that I also thought the Redline EX was over-piced. I was just wondering if you feel the Pro-M is also over-priced. I didn't mention the R3 at all in my response to you. I did, however,to a different post.
    2. I was clarifying that was one test; that's all I've seen. I merely didn't want to give the impression that it's a fact that has been proven in multiple tests that the Pro-M detection range vs the Redline EX is superior. My limited, personal experience is that there really is no difference between the two. I see you just mentioned the XP...I would say that the RLEX deals with BSM as well as or better than my XP does. But, I definitely think the range with the Redline EX on Ka is better than the XP.

    i said xp just to the fact i think they mastered the filtering on that one, compared to other detectors. i agree with everything your saying.

    Oh I get it now. You sell me your old one and get a new one?? Is that how this works?? :) Heck, if I had an M360 ci I'd be running nothing else, like my old Stir-O.

    that's how he rolls. he buys it from us hard up guys for a really low price, uses the crud out of it, then sells it for double what he bought it for... @KASHER1979 the gig is up, we know your mod of operations..

    @drtoddw as you know, I own an R1, R3 and also the EX. This is my second EX. I got it from @KASHER1979 While I agree that its a decent unit, now that another month has passed, I am firm in my belief that its a great unit EXCEPT for the fact that Ka is really not that great. Where you sit depends on where you stand and from my experience, the M3 based original Redline and Stir-O really spoiled me on their Ka detections. Enter Uniden the past year and now I am REALLY spoiled . Sure the EX has great K band filtering and I ONLY rarely get the occasional PT , but Ka still leaves a LOT to be desired when compared to the R1/3 in performance.

    I don't disagree, however I wasn't comparing it to the R3, I own one. I was just saying that wherever it falls in terms of detection of Ka, I've personally seen nothing to indicate it's any better or worse than the Pro-M. However, I don't see people saying things such as "an R3/R1 would have done so much better" when people post videos regarding the Pro-M's detection range. There's three dollars difference in price right now, and the Redline EX can be used with an app to increase its ability to warn you of radar ahead. So, please don't take what I said as a criticism of the Pro M, or the R3 for that matter. I own all three and there's no doubt in my mind that the R3 does the job of detecting ka-band radar much better than the other two. But when it comes to the difference between the Redline EX and the Pro M, I haven't seen any real difference. But I'm not stuck on that and I'm willing to keep testing in and see after hundreds of runs against the ka-band speed sign, if either one can ever pick it up even close to what the R3 can do. Currently, the R3 loses the signal and then picks it up again before either of the other two even see the signal for the first time. If that changes, I'm ready to say one is better than the other. But as it stands right now in my experience, both are equally as good against Ka 34.7. And that's all I can say. I can't speak to anyone else's testing. I can't speak to anybody else's opinion about escort. I do think Radenso has done a great job of working with the community. But my experience is just that..my experience. As it stands right now, both my Redline EX and my Pro M are very similar in 34.7 detection range.

    Just running th

    No actually I just meant that the we weren't having a party just to give him a EX. lol

    That's all I will be running is that ci for sure..... It's been fun testing out that EX again tho...

    But yeah it'll be back to the ci now soon
    --- Double Post Merged, Feb 8, 2018, Original Post Date: Feb 8, 2018 ---

    In other words "Please let us talk about the Ex without saying how much better an R3 would do etc." lol

    Kind seems like you could talk about any other detector besides Escort and not get that, but as soon as Escort unit starts getting discussion it's all on with the R3 comparisions.

    Which don't get me wrong now. Comparing it to R3 is fine and needful. But we have plenty of other threads for that.

    Maybe I missed this in all the other exchanges in this thread, but Kasher....what is wrong with your windshield in that video? Looks like someone tried using Stoners cleaner, but with an actual stone and not a paper towel or cloth. :D

    Yea it's a new product. Just rub your WS with a stone. It gets the mud off easily.

    You inspired me to do something about my WS. Got new wipers , and cleaned it very well with glass cleaner. But better. :p

    You won’t see a difference in *most* encounters, but you will most definitely see it with extreme off axis. The Pro M is hands down better with off axis than the the Redline EX. This has been consistently proven in testing.

    Even the Pro SE is better than the EX and the Redline-O on off axis. @hiddencam did a great test a few years back where the Radenso beat everything in off-axis testing. It has eyes on the side of its head or does a really good impersonation of Linda Blair......

    How many tests? Perhaps I missed some...I saw your test which pitted the Pro-M versus the Redline EX. I haven't seen any other tests that showed these two detectors going head-to-head against each other; perhaps I missed one or two?

    I'm not trying to say that the Redline EX is great off-axis, or that the Pro-M is terrible, but I haven't seen the two pitted against each other in detail.

    So was the original Pro, as I recall.

    I've tested different copies of the Redline EX and they all perform similarly. Here are 4 different tests showing the Pro M beating the Redline EX in off-axis detection.

    www.rdforum.org: 34.7 Testing - Radenso Pro M (US 4) vs Escort Redline EX (1.3)
    www.rdforum.org: 34.7 Testing - Radenso Pro M, Redline EX, Uniden R3 and Escort Max Ci 360
    www.rdforum.org: 34.7 Testing - Radenso Pro M, Redline EX and Uniden R3
    www.rdforum.org: 34.7 Testing - Radenso Pro M-Edition vs Escort Redline EX


    Apart from these tests, I've also logged 1000's of KM's with both detectors and to me, its abundantly clear the Pro M is better at off-axis than the Redline EX.

    Thanks for this, it is really helpful. Like I said, pointing me in the direction of "testing" really assists me in understanding the difference.

    Quick question...in the testing done on October 1, you listed the settings for the Pro M as "Radenso Pro M (beta fw 24) - X, K off / MRCD OFF / Ka narrow (34.7, 35.5) / Ka filter off"
    How were you able to get the Ka scan to limit itself to just 34.7 and 35.5? Was band segmentation, besides the narrow/wide option, something that was offered in the Beta 24 FW?

    Radenso beta firmware 24 was "Euro firmware" and Ka narrow did not include 33.8. I couldn't select segments, only "Ka Narrow".

    I havent seen any evidence that the EX can hang with much anything. (if you compare it to the Pro SE or the Redline -O, then most certainly not). It's about on par with the V1 on Ka band.
