Over the weekend the wife and I were headed downtown to get something to eat approx. a 45 mile round trip, on the way there and on the way home the wife’s RL360C was continuously falsing to 35.841 around 4 beeps, 2 bars and then stop and would repeat it again around every half mile doing approx. 80 mph. I bought the RL360C back in September of 2020 so it’s around 8 months old, I called Escort on Monday and shipped it out that same day for warranty repair. Hopefully everything comes back good.

I have to send mine in to be repaired it started acting crazy I’m guessing from the heat and then it fell off the windshield with the M1 attached and then went out it wouldn’t turn back on so I have 3 other plugs in the car from the R3 R7 and V1G2 I try another power cord it popped that fuse so I tried another one this time without the DashCam and it blew that fuse to needless to say I still needed a detector so I had an extra fuse for the V1G2 so tried the cord with just the M1And it came on then once I put it to the redline 360C it blew that fuse as well but I had extra for that cord so now I’m using the V1G2 which isn’t bad because I’m about to add the TMGs to the Maxima and the fact they can work together with the V1G2 and JBV1 in the next week or 2 since I’m doing house work right now and not to sure how long it will take to install the system myself thought about a shop but just dumped a bunch of money into the house and truck so let’s see what happens

@Stanley1125 I have had a TMG 3 head system now for I’m guessing around 3 years or so, 1st it was the non VPR system then I upgraded to the VPR system, I installed it myself on my 2019 Honda Ridgeline, it wasn’t hard at all to install but stuff like this is probably a whole lot easier for myself because I’ve been a Master mechanic for almost 30 years. I have tested my system around 3 times and each time it has tested really well, I have been able to JTG every gun I’ve tested against except for a DEC, it was able to get punch thru on the headlights at around 250ish’ but wasn’t able to get punch thru on center mass. I’m hoping someone puts together another laser testing within a 300 mile radius of me so I can test out this new 8.14 update. 7DFBA0C8-7F92-40D3-A6B9-F7173A3A5BCF.jpeg

I received my wife’s RL360C back from Escort after about a week and a half, the repair order said they replaced the RF circuit board, I put the radar back in the car and within about 1 mile it’s starts falsing again on 35.841 2-3 bars for about 5 seconds and it stops and then I would say within a 1/4 mile @ 50mph it does it again and this goes on and on. So this is what I did, I put it in my truck a 2019 Honda Ridgeline and drove with it in there for around 80 miles now and not one false, I put it back in her 2019 VW Jetta SEL and sure enough it does it again, so I put my R7 that works perfect in her car and it doesn’t false, so to alleviate this issue I now have a RL360C in my truck with no problems and she now has a R7 in her car with no problems. Any ideas anyone on why this would happen? I also need to add this, she has been running this RL360C since September and has had no issues up until she got rear ended which shoved her into another car causing $10,000 of damage to the front and the rear of the vehicle, the car was completely drive able and tbh didn’t even look that bad $10,000 blowes my mind, I would of guessed maybe $4K so this started after we got the car back from the body shop, they did have to replace every sensor in the front and rear but I’ve never heard of those sensors being Ka Band.

Sounds like her car is setting it off. Many newer vehicles with laser guided cruise, front collision warning, and various Blind Spot Monitoring systems will set it off at that frequency. Audi's and Teslsa's are known culprits. Do you have a dash cam in the vehicle? BlackVue dashcams have also been know to set off the Redline in this range. You can segment Ka bands, and exclude 9 and 10 to help.
There have even been conversations around Sat dishes, PoE Routers, Weather Stations....heck even cattle tracking devices all give off Ka in the range.

Search the forum as there are lots of conversations about this particular frequency.

Why aren't you running the factory default for the Ka segments? By default, segment 9 should be turned off, and if it was it would not be alerting to that frequency.

Her car does have lane assist and other fancy stuff, no cameras or anything.

I always just ran Ka Wide never gave it much thought about Segmentation, plus I’m not sure what is safe to cut on/off but I’m sure with a little bit of reading and research it would be easy to figure out.

Yeah, the RL360c performs better when segmented and if you don't, the false alerts on Ka would likely drive a guy insane.

I would suggest running segments 2,4,5,6,8. You will still get the occasional false, but will get rid of the most annoying sources. Plus your detector will perform better than running wide.

Are you mounting your RD near a center speaker in top if the dash? Sometimes that will set off KA band falses.

No there isn’t a center speaker on top of the dash on this car.

I wonder why it doesn’t make my non segmented R7 Ka false?

@Lars36 Are you sure you still want that gofundme for that 360c?...

My experience is that the R7 cries like crazy at K band. It does false to Ka, but since it's a generation behind in Ka sensitivity, it will false less on Ka just by that alone, but the filtering on the RL360C is definitely worse on Ka. Try running the settings and you will have a much better experience.

Ka segment 10 is the frequency used for automobile radar cruise control. You want to be sure that Segment 10 is turned off. I run Segmented 2/4/5/6/8.

Same thing happened to me and I sent it back for repair on May 7th. Still don't have it back yet and haven't gotten any updates. Tracking says they received it on the 10th of May. Max 3 is a great backup btw.

I would also turn off segment 9. I agree with others that 35.8xx is Escort's digital platform reacting to certain 77GHz forward adaptive cruise radars. I had the same problem on my Max Ci 360 antenna. Turning off Segment 10 mostly works but sometimes I get a frequency that's in segment 9 too.
