Firstly, i hope the thread is in the right section.
I actually own a redline international version since 2016.
I consider getting a new radar detector, remote or windshield. Redline still doing good job in KA band but lack of gps and filter on K-band getting annoying.

2 years ago Stinger's VIP was really a good performer in terms of range, filtering and capability to detect low power radars but it seems that things changed with the time, falling behind in terms of range, updates that mean to be correcting issues are causing some others bugs in the system.

There is escort's MAX CI INTL remote, seems performing well on KA band but not so much information versus GATSO, MRCD/T, others europeans radar threats. With that said Escort never really care about updates especially for europe. It's only sold with lasers jammers in europe which makes it expensive. (Lasers jammers are useless for me i will never use them.)

And there is GENEVO. I dont like the new genevo MAX, sure the oled display is cool but it seems that in terms of range ONE M is in the same level if not even better. 200€ extra isn't justified.
I like the GENEVO's update policy, and build in database for radar fixes.
Actually i'm between ONE M and the remote version.

New radenso's THEIA project in the other hands looks very promising but it's targeting the USA so, not even sure if we will have the possibility to buy it from oversea.

Any other suggestions for an upgrade from redline ?

You could consider a Uniden R7 as a temporary upgrade (I did from Escort STi-R "O" & a V1 gen.1) until Radenso "Theia" is released & performance is proven by members here on this Forum. The new Radenso is being built w/ the International market in mind from what the CEO has been stating to membership here over the last several months.

The R7 is by no means perfect, but I'm happy w/ its performance in spite of the annoying BSM signals that still seem to slip through & give false K-band alerts.

Thanks for your suggestion, R7 seems performing very well, looking at test results it is allways at the top but the thing is uniden R7 is made for the USA and UNIDEN has no interest in europe, so there will be no support for it. Sure it is a beast on KA band detection but we dont know how it will perform against some european radars.

I didn't know that radenso team was targeting international market, glad to hear that. I'll wait for THEIA release and see how things goes. In the meantime redline should be enough. Especially the R7 is sold at 899€ here in europe. Better to save money for THEIA.

also the R7 is not being stealth. Genevo products are being stealth (MAX, One M.

Which speed cams are used in your Country?
Multanova - GATSO (a lot of them) and NK7 (belgian redflex), there is also Mesta Fusion in test.
Not sure about MRCD - MRCT but it is certain that neighbour countries are equipped with that so it will be good to be able to detect that also.

I'm planning to use it on holiday too where they use only mph bee 33.8 and stalker 34.7.

I’m from NL. Have also Redline but special programmed for NL. I use mrct and gatso and the app flitsmeister. When I’m in Belgium I switch on ka4(multi nova) and use Flitsmeister or Flitsnav app. Good combo. If I would new one I would go for Genevo Max and this is build on a new platform compared with One M. A installed rd is nice in Europe but very expensive to buy and approx 350€ to install. So a portable gives the best value for your money.
