Either way, that is different than the normal lockups we’re used to.
In the thread on ERF, two other users have reported two other lockup behaviors, one at shutdown and one during an actual alert. One of the mods also chimed in that lockups were a known issue and were being looked into. The Live alert lockup is the only one I've seen on video so far though.

Its really pathetic what E is doing, now at $750! very disappointing how they are screwing so many innocent people...

Hey I suggest a new drinking game, remember “will the R7 have arrows”

Everytime E says “its a known issue and we are looking into it”

Ah yeah, that's really disappointing...

That got me thinking about other lockups so I just posted a thread about Max Ci 360 lockups as well. I don't know what's going on with these detectors, but Escort REALLY needs to get this sorted out.

their not gonna fix anything ... until everybody sends theirs back gets a full refund and wait til they get it right... they don't deserve any time on this forum... until they can prove to their customers that they actually care about them and the products they put out there... Vortex you talked to them a few years back... nothing has changed since then at all. If they aren't willing to change... all the complaining isn't gonna do anything

Ouch.

Waiting for the sleeping bug to pop up on the rl360c.

At the same time I'm waiting for my new valentine gen 2 to not power up in the future. Lol, 2020 for high end detectors is off to a shakey start. Maybe Theia should come out January 1st 2021 to be safe as 2020 is a mess in general.

Every player would be drop-dead drunk five minutes into the game. The last two players have to go head to head with, "Your detector may be defective. We suggest you send it in for service".

It is not surprising Escort released crap firmware. It is surprising that some members here thought it was going to be different this time.

Like an abusive husband promising that "it is never going to happen again"

Now let's hope it is the firmware and not something on the hardware. because if that is the case.

It is disappointing because the Red C has a real promising platform.

-range

-arrows.

-stealth

-escort live cloud coverage.

-blue tooth and wifi.

-real time updates.

-good (in appearance) build.

-hell of an marketing team,with rich ads and website.

But at this rate Escort is starting to look like Rocky mountain, with the ridiculous promises huge price tags and performance not even near the lowest of the top tier detectors.

Oh boy I wonder what you'd hear as a bug on the wall at Escort's engineering area.
Escort Lead Engineer: "Did anyone turn this R360c on before telling Marketing it's ready?"

Group being questioned: [Nothing but hunched shoulders and staring at floor] :hmm:

What Escort should do is extend the 30 money back guarantee to 90 days. That will do two things. It will say to there customers that they know about the problems with the Red Line 360c and are working on a fix at no risk to them. It will also save them $$$ in shipping costs & refunding the price of the detector. Maybe they won't sell a detector in the future until it's ready to perform as advertised.

Mine locked up today w a circle in the display.
been driving slow to figure out if this detector is legit. I don’t trust it. It shouldn’t be this way.
thinkIng about sending it back
Do you have a picture of what the display was showing when it locked up? If it happens again, pictures and/or video would be great!

Don't think. Just send it back. You can always repurchase it down the line IF or WHEN they fix all of these issues.

I sent mine back. At the end of the day I just couldn’t justify $826 for a RD with it’s “Artificial Intelligence” suffering from a disability.

Either Jon and the gang at Radenso knock it out of the park and deliver a winner with their Theia or I’m going to use the V1G2 and call it a day.

QUITE SADLY ... This is True.

I was admittedly one of the hopefuls ... totally forgetting the ridiculous Lawsuit on Radenso.

Oh well ... Life and BS goes on.
