Being away from Escort products for awhile, I am having to figure a lot of these settings out....Trying to highlight all default settings and learn some I am not familiar with so I can ask, learn, and eventually recommend (or not) R360C settings....If inappropriate to post basically the manual pages of the settings please remove....Hoping others will suggest settings and tips in this thread as well...

PREFERENCES

OVERVIEW


To access the Preferences menu, press and hold both the SEN and BRT buttons. “Preferences”
will be displayed.

SEN is used to change and review the preference category.

+ and - are used to change the settings within a category.

BRT is used to change and review a sub-category and to confirm selections.
To exit Preferences, press the power button or simply wait a few seconds without pressing any
buttons. A “Completed” message will display, confirming your selection(s).

User Mode

Advanced
–access and customize all settings and preferences. (Default)

Novice
- access and customize only Units (English or metric) and Display Color. All other
preferences are set to factory defaults. To view all settings and preferences, you must
switch to Advanced mode.

Pilot Mode

Scanning Bar
- shows an animated scanning bar along with the selected sensitivity
mode. (Default)

Full Word
- only displays the selected sensitivity mode.

Arrow Mode

Single
- arrows are displayed indicating the direction of only the primary threat. All
arrows use your selected display color.

Multiple - threat-direction arrows are displayed for multiple threats. When multiple
threats are displayed, the direction arrow of the primary threat will blink.

Band - threat-direction arrows are color-coded for the band that is being detected.
When multiple threats are displayed, the direction arrow of the primary threat will
blink. X band = green, K band = blue, Ka band and Laser = red
Note: When using Band arrow mode with Standard FR2 and Spec FR2 meter modes, the
rear bar graph will use the selected display color.

Display Color


The display graphics can be changed to blue, green, red or orange to match the instrument
lighting of your vehicle (factory default is red).

Speed Display

Turns Speed Display off or on (factory default is on). When Speed Display is off, the vehicle’s
voltage is displayed.

Cruise Alert

While traveling below the set Cruise Alert speed, all alerts sound a short double-beep. The alert
will fully sound when you exceed the Cruise Alert speed (factory default is 20 mph).

Over Speed

You can set the Over Speed alert to notify you when you are traveling over a specified speed.
When you travel above the speed that you have set, the background display for your current
speed will turn red and a voice prompt will announce “Over Speed”. When connected to Escort
Live or a Wi-Fi hotspot, the Over Speed setting is automatically set to the speed limit showing
on the display. If no speed limit data is available and the display shows --, the Over Speed
setting is used (factory default is 70 mph).

Over Speed Limit
Note: this setting only applies when RedLine 360c is connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot with internet
connectivity.

When the speed limit is exceeded by the set speed, the background for your current speed will
change to red and a voice prompt will announce “Over Speed”. If no speed limit data is
available and the display shows --, the Over Speed setting is used (factory default is Speed
Limit).

Meter Mode

RedLine 360c offers seven different settings for displaying information about alerts (factory
default is Standard FR1).

Standard
The Standard meter mode provides only the band information and front signal strength
information of a single alert. When radar is detected, the band (X, K or Ka) and a bar
graph of the signal’s strength are displayed. When laser is detected, the display will
simply read “Laser.” If there are multiple alerts present, only the highest priority threat
is displayed. Laser is the highest priority threat, followed by Ka, K, then X band radar.

Standard FR1
The Standard FR1 meter mode (FR1 = Front and Rear signal strengths of 1 signal)
displays the band of the highest priority threat along with a front and rear bar graph of
its signal strength. The left bar graph shows the signal strength in front of the detector
while the right bar graph shows the signal strength from the rear. If there are multiple
alerts present, only the signal strength of the highest priority threat is displayed. Laser is
the highest priority threat, followed by Ka, K, then X band radar. The number in
between the bar graphs is the total number of alerts that are being detected.

Standard FR2
The Standard FR2 meter mode (FR2 = Front and Rear signal strengths of 2 signals)
displays the bands of the two highest priority threats along with a front and rear bar
graph of their signal strengths. The left bar graph shows the signal strength in front of
the detector while the right bar graph shows the signal strength from the rear. When
using this meter mode the rear signal strength bar graph is always the opposite color of
the selected display color. For instance, if blue is the display color, then the rear bar
graph will be red. If there are multiple alerts present, only the signal strength of the two
highest priority threats are displayed. Laser is the highest priority threat, followed by Ka,
K, then X band radar. The number in between the bar graphs is the total number of
alerts that are being detected.

Spec FR1
The Spec FR1 meter mode (FR1 = Front and Rear signal strengths of 1 signal) displays the
numeric frequency and band of the highest priority threat along with a front and rear
bar graph of its signal strength. The left bar graph shows the signal in front of the
detector while the right bar graph shows the signal strength from the rear. If there are
multiple alerts present, only the signal strength of the highest priority threat is
displayed. Laser is the highest priority threat, followed by Ka, K, then X band radar. The
number in between the bar graphs is the total number of alerts that are being detected.

Spec FR2
The Spec FR2 meter mode (FR2 = Front and Rear signal strengths of 2 signals) displays
the numeric frequency of the highest priority threat and the bands of the two highest
priority threats along with a front and rear bar graph of their signal strengths. The left
bar graph shows the signal in front of the detector while the right bar graph shows the
signal strength from the rear. When using this meter mode the rear signal strength bar
graph is always the opposite color of the selected display color. For instance, if blue is
the display color, then the rear bar graph will be red. If there are multiple alerts present,
only the signal strength of the two highest priority threats are displayed. Laser is the
highest priority threat, followed by Ka, K, then X band radar. The number in between
the bar graphs is the total number of alerts that are being detected.

Expert FR
Expert FR meter mode (FR = Front and Rear signal strengths) simultaneously tracks up to
four radar alerts displaying each alert’s band along with a bar graph of their front and
rear signal strengths. When using this meter mode the rear signal strength bar graph is
always the opposite color of the selected display color. In the above image, a Ka band,
two K bands, and an X band signal are being detected. The X band alert is grey to show
that it is a locked out false alert. For more information about locking out false alerts see
the GPS Filtering/TrueLock section. Expert FR meter mode can help you spot a change in
your normal driving environment (e.g., a traffic radar unit being operated in an area
where there are normally other signals present).

Simple
Simple messages replace bands and signal strengths or frequencies:
Caution - used when an alert is received while you are traveling below your
current Cruise Alert setting (or posted speed limit for your current location when
connected to ESCORT Live).
Slow Down - displayed when an alert is received while you are traveling above
the current Cruise Alert setting (or posted speed limit of your current location,
when connected to ESCORT Live).


Alert Tones

Standard

The factory default Standard alert tones uses a Geiger counter-type sound to indicate
the signal strength and type of radar signal being encountered. When you encounter
radar, a distinct audible alert will sound and will increase as the signal gets stronger. This
allows you to judge the distance from the signal source without taking your eyes off of
the road. Each band has a distinct tone for easy identification:
X band = beep tone
K band = brap tone
Ka band = double-brap tone Laser = solid brap tone
POP = solid brap tone

Standard Plus
Features the Standard alert tones outlined above for the primary alert, plus doublebeep
tones for additional alerts.
Mild
Mild alert tones offer softer, simpler alert tones that are less obtrusive to the driving
experience:
X band, K band, Ka band and POP = Doorbell chime
Low signal strength = Double chime
High signal strength = Triple chime
If alert remains in area more than 15 seconds = Single chime (as a reminder)
Laser = Solid brap tone
Since laser signals are a possible threat no matter how weak, laser alerts are always full
strength.

AutoMute
Your RedLine 360c also includes ESCORT’s patented AutoMute feature. Once RedLine 360c
alerts you to a radar encounter at your selected volume level, it automatically reduces the
volume to the selected AutoMute level. This keeps you informed without the annoyance of a
continuous full-volume alert. If you prefer, you can turn the AutoMute feature off.

AutoLearn
The AutoLearn feature analyzes (over time) the source of radar signals by location and
frequency. This allows RedLine 360c to determine if a fixed location signal is a real threat or a
false one. If it determines that the signal is an automatic door opener, motion sensor, etc., it
automatically locks out this source at this particular location. A “Stored” message will appear on
the display when a signal has been automatically locked out. AutoLearn typically needs to
encounter the exact frequency in the same location approximately three times to lock it out.
Since some door openers are turned on and off routinely, some variations may occur. RedLine
360c will also unlearn signals to protect you from locking out real threats. If a particular signal is
no longer present at a location that was previously locked out, RedLine 360c will unlock that
signal. If you prefer, you can turn the AutoLearn feature off.

GPS Filter (TrueLock)
RedLine 360c is equipped with a TrueLock GPS Filter to store and lock out, or ignore, fixed
location false alerts in its memory. Common sources of fixed location false alerts are storefront
automatic door openers and motion sensors. The TrueLock GPS Filter will not lock out moving
false alerts that are commonly caused by vehicle’s blind spot monitoring and collision
avoidance systems.
Locking Out False Alerts
To manually lock out a fixed location false alert
(X band, K band or laser only), press the MUTE button three times during an alert.
Pressing the first time will silence the audio. Pressing a second time will generate a
prompt on the display that
will read “Lockout?” Press a third time to confirm you want to lock this signal out by
location and frequency. A “Stored” message will be displayed. Once a signal has been
stored, RedLine 360c will not audibly alert the next time you approach this area but will
display the locked-out alert in grey.
Locked Out Alert
To unlock a signal that has already been stored, simply press the MUTE button twice
while receiving the locked out alert. The display will read “Unlock?” when pressing
MUTE the first time. Press the MUTE button again to unlock it from memory. The display
will read “Unlocked” to confirm your action.
Note: When the GPS Filter is set to OFF, you do not have access to RedLine 360c’s other
GPS- enabled features (e.g., Defender Database alerts, marking locations, etc.).

AutoPower
This feature automatically turns off RedLine 360c after a set period of time to save unnecessary
drain on your battery. This is especially useful if your vehicle has a constant-power ignition. To
turn RedLine 360c on again you must press the power button.

Note: If AutoPower is on, to save screen life the display screen goes blank after 30 minutes
without moving. The display screen will turn on automatically after you reach 10MPH.


Band Enables

In the factory default setting the suggested radar and laser bands for North America are
monitored and sources of some common false alerts are rejected. It is highly recommended
that you use your RedLine 360c in this mode.

If you modify Band Enables then this setting will show Modified. The RedLine 360c will also
notify you during the startup sequence with an audible alert, and associated text message
stating which bands have changed from the factory default settings.
WARNING: Do not turn off any bands unless you are absolutely certain there are no traffic radar
guns using that specific band in your area.


Shifters
(only displayed when ZR5 or ZW5 shifters are connected)

RedLine 360c is equipped with a total of four (2 front, 2 rear) Laser ShifterMax sensors. These
highly sensitive laser transceivers will detect a laser signal and, when Shifting is enabled, will
respond (or transmit) a pulsed signal back in order to “Shift” or confuse the targeting laser gun.
The MUTE button can be used to manually shut off Laser Shifting once you have checked your
speed. Since some laser guns provide “jamming” codes for the officer, this can be useful to
avoid any undue attention. Simply press the MUTE button twice during a laser alert. All Shifters
will cease to transmit and the display will change from “Shifting” to “Laser”. “Laser” indicates
that you are receiving
a laser alert in “Receive Only” mode.
The Shifters will remain in the “Receive Only” mode for approximately sixty seconds, giving you
time to pass the speed trap. Once this time has expired a double beep tone will be given,
indicating that the Shifters are now back in “Shifting” mode.

Marker Enables
In the factory default setting, the suggested fixed location alerts are reported. It is highly
recommended that you use your RedLine 360c in this mode.
If you modify Marker Enables then this setting will show Modified and only the Markers that
you have selected are reported.
Marking Locations
The MRK button allows you to mark a specific location and label it for future reference. Once
marked, RedLine 360c will provide an alert when you reach this area again.
RedLine 360c gives advanced warning of upcoming markers at the following distances:

Red light cameras - 250 ft or 10 seconds
Red light & speed cameras - 250 ft or 10 seconds
Speed cameras - 500 ft when traveling below 55 mph
1,000 ft when traveling above 55 mph
Speed traps - 0.3 mi or approximately 1,584 ft
Other - 500 ft when traveling below 55 mph
1,000 ft when traveling above 55 mph

To Mark A Location
- Press MRK. The display will read “Mark?” Press MRK again to bring up a menu of
markers to choose from.
- Repeatedly press MUTE to scroll through the markers then press MRK to select the
marker that you wish to use at this location.
- The display will read “Marked!”
Air Patrol locations cannot be marked by the user.
Note: When a location is marked the first time, you must travel at least 1 mile away from
that location to receive an alert when you return to the area.

To Unmark A Location
Touch the MRK button when you are receiving a marked-location alert. The display will
read “Unmark?” Touch the MRK button again to confirm. The display will read
“Unmarked!”

Clear Locations
At some point, you may wish to clear some of the data in RedLine 360c’s database. This may
include any of the following: Defender Database data, Marked locations or false alert Lockouts.
To clear all data in RedLine 360c’s database, select Format then press SEN to confirm.

Wi-Fi
Turns on and off Wi-Fi connection to a hotspot. Default is On

Bluetooth

Turns on and off Bluetooth connection to a smartphone. Default is On

Auto Update

Selects which software is updated automatically when connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot. Default is
All.

Wi-Fi Update

Manually force the detector to search for updated software. Press BRT to make the selection
then follow display prompts.

Going to have some silly questions as I go along so hold my hand for a little while....

1. Auto Power---Now normally I would just assume that this is for when vehicle is not moving but the default setting is 4 hours and I think I saw 8 hours....I turned off as always because my detectors are hardwired and power off with vehicle...However, with these long time frames (4 and 8 hours) will this thing just shut off if traveling on a long road trip?

Don't think so as long as you are moving. Turning it off should be fine as, like you said, you are hardwired to switched power.

I thought “auto power” is also determined by GPS signal. It only counting down the time if there is no movement. As long as the vehicle is moving, power off timer will not start to count.

Exactly my thoughts I was just stunned to see such long time spans....Who would want their detector staying on 4 to 8 hours but I just remembered these things are updated over wifi...That would make sense for such time frames....
