Maybe a copy/paste typo? If you look at the FB post in the OP, it auto-pulled info from Escort's website and introduces the Redline 360c.
Yea, the only thing I know is something does not add up.
Edit: A couple of years ago I would have been able to get these things clarified on ERF. That time has long past.

I wonder what version of FW it will have out of the box? If its the RL360c with a built in 1440P well it will be interesting to see what it has and if for some reason it outperforms the standard off the shelf RL360C. Vortex -you've got a bunch of questions comin your way, LOL...
They mentioned a couple of times on the call that it is an improvement over the Max360c, but the RL360c will still have better performance sensitivity/range wise.

Honestly- I was expecting the price to be around the same the Redline. It has spaceship vibe. Can't say I'd buy it, but it is a nice "combo" per-say. Still laughing at the fact that the annoucement was via a Zoom meeting and not a YT stream.

At least it records at 2560x1440p @ 30 FPS. If I had to guess it's essentially RL360c performance + a camera in one. I'd be curious to see how it compares, but I'd bet heavily on it being similar.
I wouldn't expect RL360c performance based on their call, expectations should be set at "Max360c PLUS" performance.

I'm wrong or in the notice there are no mention on K band, Gatso, MRCD/T?
I think it has not be conceived for international market outside U.S.
So similar performances of the 360C / 360C International ?

In the manual they mention K band segmentation and MRCD/CT, but no Gatso.

Here are a couple initial operational items they posted on ERF:

"MAXcam 360c Device Settings: At launch, we’ve included camera settings for the MAXcam 360c so you can customize your camera experience. Detector settings will be included in an update in early October, but you can still access your detector and camera settings via the device menu and rotary knob on the device.

Gallery Timeline Thumbnails: The MAXcam 360c’s gallery timeline is accessible today, and we will be adding thumbnails to better identify clips in mid-October.

At launch, Drive Smarter is compatible with the MAXcam 360c, M2 radar-mounted smart dash cam, and the Cobra SC series of smart dash cams. Additional Escort detector compatibility will be added in Fall 2021. You will need to use Drive Smarter to connect to WiFi. Limited functionality will be available via Escort Live – such as the ability to adjust Settings remotely via the app and view Live Alerts. All features, including those related to device setup, video capture and management, are implemented or being added to the Drive Smarter app."

Not sure what firmware it comes with, but according to @JSherbondy Escort will have a new version of firmware (Ver 1.5) which will be available for download (via USB, WiFi, or through Drive Smarter). He also said that he will have more on this posted later today.

Finally, he also stated that this unit will have the same Blackfin 706 DSP and SDR AD 9363 chips that are in their flagship RL360C radar detector.

I'm not a big fan of having several electronic devices in one unit, if one goes bad, that you stuck sending in the whole unit and doing without the other (reminds me of the days when the 8 track and the record player and the stereo am/fm was all one unit). I'm used to having a separate radar detector and a dashcam (FYI: my Escort Max is going on 8 yrs old, but I'm going on my 5th dashcam).

Hey Vortex I am surprised that Radargirl doesn't just send you one on loan for testing. Don't they realise that if it gets your seal of approval that sales will be good.
Or are they scared it won't get a passing grade ?🤔
I'm wondering about that too. They did ask me about testing an upcoming product a while ago (the Maxcam), but they never wound up ultimately sending me one for whatever reason.

Anyways, here's my initial thoughts on the new detector while I wait on it to arrive.

Yeah I wasn't expecting the price to be quite so high.

It does look pretty interesting though. I just ordered one and am looking forward to taking a closer look.
you should have called bob, he's their only tester lol.

looking forward to seeing some real results.

over priced and under performer if history repeats itself.

Good catch. I just opened the link and saw that! It has an overlay, but when you scroll down it shows the unit.

I can't find weight anywhere on Escort's website, @Vortex can you weigh it when you get your unit?

Sure thing. It should arrive tomorrow and I can pop it on my mail scale to figure out the weight. Escort did mention in the chat this morning that it is heavier than the RL360c.

I'm wondering if they changed the WiFi chip in the detector so it will connect to 4 or 5G networks without having to go for the Spark AT&T fix if it doesn't work in your car. If you add that in with the monthly fees & tax your looking at almost $1000. WOW!!

Personally, I think I’ll be skipping this one. Doesn’t seem well enough worth the change. I can’t wait to see if it had lockup bugs or not.

Remember in the 90's RD got smaller? Joking aside, one thing I picked up on in @Vortex video is a parking mode on the camera. In AZ if I left that on the windshield when parked it wouldn't work after getting baked. In CA it would get stolen. I like my RD high and tight behind the tint to hide it from the sun and thieves. Honestly, the size of this thing won't allow that in my car.
