@wayne77

I appreciate what Vortex does. Back when I was looking to upgrade to something to replace my 9500ix, I watched a ton of his videos on YouTube to get up to speed on what choices were available, and learn what would fit my needs. And that is why my first choice was the RedLine EX. Since I drive in areas that need RDD Immunity and MRCD detection, it made sense to get one. And Auto-lockouts with Escort Live also played a part in that decision. His videos outlining all these features sold me on the RedLine EX. At that time its weak points were BSM filtering and laser falsing, but there have been firmware updates to address both. Since then, many detectors have had a lot of updates. So things change all the time in RD land. That's also a reason to retest them from time to time.

I would love to do testing for a living, but that's not the (single income) job that puts my family's food on the table, cats food on the floor, keeps a roof over our heads...and helps my daughter through college. To get to that level of comparative testing, you need to be fully invested in that large amount of equipment, or have a local group of people who can pool resources and time together to accomplish the same. I would be willing to donate my three detectors and my time, but that is all I have to offer. Not many are in that unique position to do this for a living.

Vortex videos also helped me to buy my other two detectors, and to avoid some others. So it's not a criticism, but just an observation that a capable detector is missing from that comparative test lineup on that course.

Come on over and join me! If I could have multiple people doing runs simultaneously, all logging data, we could run lots more detectors, do more passes to make the results more statistically significant, try different combinations of settings, etc. There's always more than could be done. The difficult thing is actually executing. :)

Actually, I've done crazy things like fly cross country to help a friend move. I haven't been to Seattle in some time, but have been there 3 times in the past for work. So sure! If I can work it into my vacation schedule, I will come out and help. I would actually like to drive out, although that would take a lot more time.

haha, it could actually be fun to see what we could accomplish by getting a bunch of people together. If we had a bunch of people all doing runs, we really could accomplish SO much more. I'm sure people will complain that the results may be a little different because they're running in different cars and at slightly different heights, but that's okay. Nevertheless, we could get SO much done with 2 or even 3 cars running back and forth nonstop from morning to sunset.

I'm wanting to do some remote testing and some laser jammer testing next and all of those would be something done on my vehicle specifically, but if we had people with a K40 or some other equipment I don't have installed, they could easily join in and do some test passes. Heck, even if people have the same detectors I do, I'm sure @CJR238 would love to see multiple copies of detectors being tested. :)

I'm just not sure how many cars my test course could support as far as pullouts and turnarounds. :)

The laser testing I was participating in was a lot of fun. I would love to be a part of any testing. Heck, last Saturday I drove nine laps of 36 miles (each) in my new Honda Insight hybrid to test MPG at 55, 65 and 75 MPH in Sport, Normal and Econ modes. Glad I have TMG quads and a MAX 360 in there for the 75 MPH part of the test. I love doing stuff like that, and love driving.

So maybe I should drive out that way. Since I get great gas mileage (sometimes in the 70+ MPG range), and I have countermeasures we could test, it would be fun. PM me if you want to set something up. :)

I am curious if an off the shelf unit for all units would give us the same results?

Appreciate the testing at any rate! Thanks for sharing!

I would love to see how my passport max compares with these units since a lot folks are running them again now that Escort has added IVT filtering.
