$750 is a lot for a WS mount RD. It does have great 'all-in-on' features and impressive sensitivity, however, it is significantly lacking in either internal hardware capability or proper programming and as a result has very sub-par reactivity for a 'flagship' unit.the results of the vote kind of surprised me... i think things will turn around, might take some time, but they always do with any detecotr, well except cobras
My advice would be wait for Theia? As big of a meme as that’s become in the community, I’m believing that if you have anything that’s considered a “high end” RD, (anything R3 and better) I would continue to wait. If not, my V1 has never served me wrong.
i doubt it’ll be anything like GPUs since you can’t set up a giant array of these and print money out of your house. I’m holding out hope that Radenso will be able to source parts by years end, or at least we’ll hear about something.It will be a while before it's out due to the global parts shortages. If it's anything like computer GPU's it's going to be a while. I'd go with a V1G2 or an R7 over the 360
These are my sentiments, almost verbatim. The detector is worth 400, could be priced at 500/600, and firmwares should be tested before they are released on the consumer.It was far off the mark at launch. Each firmware upgrade has brought it closer and closer to reaching that level.
Right now, it boasts top level sensitivity, only losing to the V1G2 in Ka range in some frequencies (but hangs close). It has lock outs that work very well to quiet stationary sources of false alerts. It has a ton of features in one package.
There are 4 things really holding it back.
1. The ability to alert to brief signals. It's the slowest high end detector I've ever seen. This goes against the marketing that says it's so much faster. What it's faster at is something I've yet to discover.
2. It has a closed API for connecting to the detector. This is such a shame because this could have such a positive impact for making it the ultimate solution and Escort Live is hands-down the worst app I've had to use. It's slow to connect, causes your phone to overheat, drain your battery, and overwhelm the charger because of its insane CPU usage. It's also very limited in its usefulness compared to other solutions available elsewhere.
3. The ramp up is by far the worst of any detector I've ever used. It's so bad that a user has no way to decipher or interpret how close a threat is. There is no excuse for them to still get this so wrong, especially on such an expensive device.
4. The BSM filtering is not top level. It can seem that way when you employ K notch, but that is a terrible solution that is downright dangerous. Instead of making it numb to certain frequencies it should instead be classifying signals.
Remember the original Redline was far overpriced at launch as well. It took far too long to get Escort to release even 1 update to the unit, to allow that Band Segmentation and the ability to turn the Radar Detector Rejection off, which then allowed it to open up and perform to its ability.These are my sentiments, almost verbatim. The detector is worth 400, could be priced at 500/600, and firmwares should be tested before they are released on the consumer.
Dude the menu goes one direction. Is it 1985 or what. This detector is around $800 to your door. Insanely over priced.
If you want to see what kind of company that is, look at all the new forum members that signed up when the R360 was released, then have gone inactive over the last 6-12 months. Propaganda. BS. Lies printed right on the box.
I am probably being extra critical because I have a RDR M3 Redline with a mag case. Bad to the bone. I had expectations for range, ramp up, reactivity. This was supped to be the “redline with arrows”. It was extremely disappointing how it took 10+ years to belly flop.
