That's right! Radenso took everyone on a ride on the hype train, set a release date (< 12/31/20) and then went radio silent with the vids and updates. The emergency brakes on the train has brought it to a screeching halt. The inpatient reaction from many of the forum members is expected given this is the environment they created. But it is entertaining!

Hmmm... They announced projected release date by 12/31/20 at SEMA last year. Shortly after the Corona Virus hit and I don't care what electronics company you ask everyone has been affected with major delays with all the factories around the world shutting down for months. They are also located in Ohio which has some of the worst restrictions preventing them from going into the office and get stuff done. If anyone's paid attention to any company in Ohio look at how Valentine & Escort have been hit with lockdowns and how users cant even contact customer service in those companies. A little patience should be given to these guys who have been working extremely hard to keep moving forward while being hit with so many obstacles.
Not to mention, there's still 37 effing days left in 2020! Based on how this entire year has gone, we should all know full well how quickly things can change in 37 days. Radenso owes absolutely nobody on this forum anything. It's their business and they can conduct it as they wish. They have not yet broken their promise of a release by 12/31/2020, so we should have no reason to believe otherwise. When clock strikes midnight on 1/1/2021, then all the naysayers, haters, and conspiracy theory whacks can have full reason to scream from the RDF mountaintops about how Radenso wronged everyone. But until then, they're not wavering from their plans and we should have no reason to believe otherwise.

So many on this forum are so entitled. It's embarrassing. No wonder Uniden stopped giving out hints on firmware and Mike V doesn't stop by anymore. Hell, it seems like even the Escort execs bailed quickly. Some here just like to scream their opinions into the void hoping to get a crumb of attention.

With exchange and duty this is going to end up costing about 2000 canadian dollars anyway so I’ll be waiting till knock offs show up on alibaba.

If say 1300 cad is 1000 usd then because the item is made in USA and should be classed as a computer there would be no duty. Just sales tax. Fair enough. So i expect 1500 cad. And remember Shopify is a Canadian company so thats a plus for all of us. You might have a long wait on alibaba. And why reward rip off companies ?

It will be interesting to see if it is released before '21.....I would be shocked/impressed if it was. I think Radenso was/is capable of releasing the product as they 1st announced prior to all this Covid craziness, but given all of the lockdowns/restrictions in staffing it must have added a decent delay to their time frame. Even if their business was unaffected by the virus the massive supply chain shortage of parts could cause a significant delay as well. I know in my business when I am ordering things from multiple vendors, in the US and overseas there are major backorders and delays on parts. Parts that are normally available from China/Japan have been backordered since August with NO ESD on the books yet! Hell, I'm trying to order a certain 24" bike for my son, it has been backordered since April. Originally, they hoped to have them available to order by the end of last month, but now it looks like end of Dec and potential shipping in Jan. If Radenso happens to miss their '20 release estimate people seriously need to relax, life will go on, we are all at the mercy of 'availability' currently, whether you realize it or not.

This thread wrinkles my harbles.

Whether the 2020 release date stated in 2019 is met or not...who cares? Especially given the circumstances with how this year has played out...times has changed. SW Ohio is a dumpster fire right now and delays should be expected.

Rdforum: HOW CAN A COMPANY RELEASE A RADAR DETECTOR BEFORE ITS READY, COMPANIES SHOULD JUST SIT ON THE PRODUCT UNTIL ITS PERFECT. NO EXCUSE FOR ARROWS NOT WORKING AND SCREENS FALLING OFF WE WAITED 25 YEARS FOR THIS WHATS ANOTHER 6 MONTHS

Also Rdforum: I WANT THE PRODUCT NOW EVEN IF I HAVE TO BE BETA TESTER AND IF THE ARROWS DONT WORK AND THE SCREEN FALLS OFF

At least I get provided some entertainment while sitting at home waiting for another COVID test result.

Sorry about the 'Roni issues. Hope your parents and the older Radenso employees like Randy are OK.

I have been avoiding my parents since they both have medical complications. Randy's a tough case because we are totally screwed if he dies, but he refuses to change his lifestyle ;) .....

You gotta keep him out of "those" establishments, huh?

Plot twist: The testing facility told you they’ll get you the results in 2020? 🤔



All kidding aside, it’ll come back negative. You’ll be fine. 👍 #positivethinking

I don't feel sick at all and I am sure I am fine. It's just a huge disruption when we keep having to clean out the office and make everyone WFH while waiting on lab tests that are now taking almost a week to come back. Regardless of us not having symptoms we are following the state's guidelines for quarantine and testing.

it’s crazy to me that we are still having to wait a week for results on some of these tests. Where I live in southern Indiana we are waiting 3-4 days from one location and 5-6 from another. crazier still if we go over to Kentucky we get the results same day!
