    Well I’m assuming it’ll have all the same features as the Redline EX, just with the rear antenna and arrows, similar to the Max2 and Max360.

    Same s*it, different packaging.
    Escort goes thru so many new (updated but same or worse peformance) models its just sad. Remember Vortex or Dukes Redline EX interior, Redline Ex vs O performance, MAX360 marketing as a extreme long range, Max1/2 fastest long range detector, 33.8 ghosting on max series etc etc etc.
    Dont expect much from this new redline.

    Dont Try
    The Redline EX LAX is built on a different platform than the "Max" 360 and there have been no reports of lockups with the Redline EX. I had one and really wanted to like it....it was very well built, the mount was outstanding, range was decent and Escort does have stationary lockouts nailed. The problem was its BSM filtering, rather, lack thereof. I had only 2 of four K segments enabled, TSR on and unit set to AutoLok. Despite this, it would constantly produce full-blast IO K band alerts to BMS polluters, even when the polluter was on the other side of a divided highway. My best friend and I have known each other since 1974....we were driving and the EX LAX was BSM falsing so much that he said, "Turn this f-ing thing off or I'm going to throw it out the f-ing window". I wound up selling it at a fire-sale price just to get rid of it.

    Relative to a Redline 360, well, I won't be opening the wallet. Uniden likely has something up their sleeve with regard to arrows and they have proven themselves with outstanding support. If there are flaws with the Redline E360, I don't trust Escort to fix them. Pump and dump is their MO.

    Another beta soft launch? It will just be a Ex with arrows,new case and all hype about enhanced performance. The R3 will be obselete soon. That platform has came and gone.

    " better laser sensitivity, fewer laser falses" This is good to know. I have heard a few complaints the r3 didnt alert to Lidar, but figured it was just the narrow beam, thank you Vortex

    Flying below the radar!
    Just another way to drive up prices with little or no performance improvement. I will say my R3 is terrible at laser detection, but that is what the ALPs are for. Give me RO performance with awesome BSM filtering and arrows that match the V1, and six months of community testing...maybe I would consider it. Hell, I could convince my wife to buy that because she is V1 nut. Can't get it away from her.

    Still waiting for a V2 Radar detector. With all their patents and leading Laser detection, THAT could be the next level of detection! And, their products seem to have very few (if any) software glitches...

    Firmware 1.5 on my Redline EX has really tamed the ridicuouslaser falsing on the unit. Build quality and MOUNT on the EX are indeed better than the Unidens . Now, as to performance, that's the great unknown. If its anything like the M7 based ci units, which I've been told perform as good as the Unidens in CN, then it'll be a winner. @jdong has a full boat 360 ci in NorCal , so I am curious as to how a WS mount M7 will do??? As always, ONLY time and testing will tell us how it does.

    A handful of people only know whats coming. TXCTG should debut it, when the prototype arrives.

    We got burned on the EX,so we got better things to test.

    Question for you guys: Up until last year, we were easily able to search the FCCID.io site for the latest detectors etc. NOW, for some reason, most of the info published is contemporaneous with about the time the units are being introduced to public. Any thoughts on how to get this info as we did before (always at least 6-8 weeks before iuntro??) For example, Uniden uses ETL which is in Korea for their units and its diffucult to find the FCC ID until the product is almost ont eh shelves? Thoughts??

    Same reason as the last time you asked:
    www.rdforum.org: Done with the Redline EX

    Somewhat recently, the FCC gave TCB's the authority to certify devices that they test directly, subject to audit. Thus companies can hire an accredited testing lab to test and certify their product, and upon passing the testing lab uploads the relevant documents to the FCC and the device is approved (now <1 week).

    If you look at the documents for the Redline EX for example, everything is dated May 23, 2017, even though they weren't submitted to the FCC until July 27th and didn't show up on the website until July 28th. Thus Escort gets their paperwork and device in order and sends it out to a testing lab, and once the testing lab passes and certifies the device it shows up on the FCC website a day or so later. The company can also request short-term and long-term confidentiality for certain documents, so they are not made public for a period of time (eg until the device is released).

    I think what you are referring to before is when companies would send their entire application package to the FCC, including testing data, and it would show up on the website while the FCC was reviewing it. Since this is mostly all done by TCB accredited testing labs now, the documents are not made public until the device is approved.

    Thanks @InsipidMonkey , thats what I figured. LC of ER loves the fact that we no longer get to see whats coming down the pike until its actually here. NOT just ER, but it seems like all of the companies including Uniden etc are doing it now. Nice catch by the OP in seeing it on DTs.
