Just checked eBay, $239 to $300. Is this a good time to pick up a Redline for those rare VA trips?

The original Redline effectively has zero BSM filtering. You can turn on TSR and it'll ignore Audi BSM from the 2000's, but it's going to be screaming K-band IO like alerts for everything else on the roads.

I think your money would be better spent on an R1 or R3 today.

I can definitely tell that people are thinking the same as you. I'm trying to sell my Redline-O on a couple different platforms and it's been rough. No nibbles.

I still run my R-O. Almost all Ka in my parts and for what little K there is around me even the R1/R3 was falsing daily (granted not like the R-O but enough) on K band no matter how it was set up so even with the R's I was just running Ka which really never falses. I found for me the falsing was still frequent enough with the R's that it was both annoying and causing me to often ignore the alerts as almost every K alert was a non-threat. With the R1 going for $200 regularly new and the R3 under $300 and range similar it does kinda cap the price for even Ka only users on the R-O. I will eventually get the R7 when it goes on sale in the mid $400's just for the arrows. I paid under $300 many years back for the R-O and even getting near $200 for it would seem like good value.

Thankfully my BS 2013 Redline still as good as new. Where Im at, K band isnt an issue which makes the redline quiet, extremely fast in both ka and laser pick ups.. Crazy coverage even with k band on. If I had k band issues all the time, I would buy something new.

I used to have a redline and while it was great for KA band the K falsing from BSM's eventually led me to sell it. Its still a great option if you live in an area where only KA band is used. I still run across legitimate K band in my area from time to time so for me my R7 and Max 360 are the way to go.

Sheriff runs some K-band, as does Stuart PD. I had a few legitimate K alerts while in Port St Lucie. So, don't know why you believe that K-band isn't an issue.

Man am I wrong. FHP used a low power k band 24.133 on same stretch of 95 north st lucie before ft. pierce theres trap all day everyday and passed last night with One FHP using laser, 1 using k band.
Same with Port st lucie using the low power k band frquency. If I was speeding last night in that spot, I was busted. The k band cop targeted me and my redline didnt see till he hit me i looked right at him. i was doing 65 in 60. (close call) so
Just got a sick price on new r3 which Ive been on fence to buy till last night. I love my redline but it sucks with k band on...K band wasnt an issue for me until recently here, so I jumped on a new r3 for 319 no tax. Shipped overnight will be here tomorrow and will do some testing with some k band range and quiet over the redline. If its not better on k band and quiet, I have 30 days to see.
My older redline with b/s is really good especially on ka band so whatever i hear the r3 is better but where i really care.... These cops now using these k band guns I am hoping this makes a better range and quieter.
Thats the first FHP k band hit in years in florida. Its always ka for years.

Remember the "old" days when guys ran V1 and RL with K band off. I was one of those guys! Awesome combo!
So was I! I agree, it was an incredible combo! I've tried for years to match it and I finally have! I run my R1 with 1.48 firmware on a perm Ebay tape mout above my rear view mirror segged to 2-5-8 with TFS, K filter and city mode. This takes care of any K band that might pop up while being stone cold quiet the rest of the time! I have my Redline-O also hardwired and mounted on it's sticky cup in the very top of my back glass. X band is off of course on both of them. The Redline is also segged to 2-5-8 with RDR off and NO K BAND! I tested this head to head with @VariableWave 's R7 last week and my combo matched it time after time from the front and beat it from the rear against 35.5! I've been running them for a couple of months now and I can't imagine how anything can top this! And no, the R7 was NOT tested with the R1 and Redline, it was of course run by itself!

Wait... so I just read setup mode...was thinking advanced, K band 60%, k filter, k narrow(havent run into k band outside the narrow range here...) mostly ka, laser.
And so much more... watching vortex video over agin on setup.... cant wait to try new next day delivery prime 319$ new no tax, and 4.90 for data cord.
Is update through uniden website? Im sure it will tell me tomorrow.
So freakin excited.
So You use redline on ka for the rear( haha lol) thats funny! I love my redline but its time for quieter ride....Too k band chatty and im running into 24,129- 24.133 alot lately so i need to pay attention.
TY for any additional setup help...
we have stationary ka source as well as kband sources... so I can fine tune and see redline comparison side by side.
Had waze and my knowledge of this speedtrap the other day not happened with fhp using k 24.133 and nailed me, I wouldnt have been buying this today. And got crazy deal.

K band is OFF on the Redline! I tried advanced mode all the way down to 30% on my R1 and it still drove me nuts! The Redline doesn't make a peep till it gets hit from the rear with a legit Ka band shot! Then it screams bloody murder!
