Rumor is that the RL360’s are in stock according to customer service. The current stock will cover the current orders. Anybody get a shipping notice?
Could you clarify what you mean? Would not a reorder move one down the shipping que perhaps past their current inventory?Just called Escort and re-placed my order again. According the rep, the order is expecting to be shipped later this week and most likely early next week. Let’s see how much of truth will be holding this time.
BTW, it is also reported by other members that phone order will hold the credit card charge until ship vs. on-line order will get charged right away. The order confirmation email from phone order is also differEnt from on-line order where clearly states that charge will NOT posted until shipping confirmation.
Now it is the waiting game!
I placed an on-line order on 7/7 and I got charged full amount right away. Called back couple of days late and asked when it will be shipping since I got charged already. Was told it won’t be shipping until the end of month. I then cancelled order. Today I replaced order via phone instead of on-line. Not sure there is any artificial shipping que. There was reported saying by asking to cancelled call will trigged the immediate shipping, which is not the case from my experiences. There are few ones got their multiple replacement shipments as well. IMHO, their just running the inventory balance before the shipment based on their inventory control system setup, not necessary “receive one and ship one”, rather to have enough safety on-hand quantities before fulfill the orders.Could you clarify what you mean?

@GailFromCedar FAVOR....Can you please respond with some clarity on logistics/expectations on newly placed orders. A bunch of us ordered and have paid for the RL360c and the only insight we have is what I put above last week. Thank you in advance for the transparency and insight. We are all just excited to get our new toy and need realistic expectations. Also if you could move mine to the front of the line I'd appreciate that too.

Most likely a new firmware release is on the horizon for the R7 they should effectively make it a better RD then the Redline and for about 1/3 cheaper.Was thinking about canceling and getting another R7 for $449. LOL the price just went back up to $499. Guess they figured with the 360c price and backorder why not.
Ha. Well stated. I’m in the waiting game too. Ordered 7/10. I’m assuming the shipment that came in last week is going through some QA and getting 1.3 updated. After that “rough” launch they may have slowed down to emphasize quality but I agree we should both easily have our new RL’s by your date.Waiting sucks, none of us on here are very good at it. Escort did say that it would be second half of July which could be any day now. I would say you will have your RL360 by your trip on August 4th with new firmware v1.3 already installed so you'll be ready to go immediately.
