What are the main benefits of choosing the Redline EX Radar Detector?

Escort Redline EX Pros:

  • The Escort Redline EX has extreme detection range - greater than 8-times the range of a police radar gun
  • Redline EX dual front facing antenna design maximizes sensitivity to all police bands
  • Like the previous Redline, the Redline EX is undetectable to SPECTRE radar detector detectors (RDDs)
  • Ability to segment the Ka-band spectrum enabling the EX faster scanning and longer range.
  • New ability to segment K-band to reduce falses
  • The EX includes new ability to detect MultaRadar CD/CT (currently used abroad and in western provinces of Canada)
  • Can filter out some of the false alerts caused by the anti-collision sensors installed in new cars today
  • Full color OLED display
  • GPS integration allows for photo enforcement and red light camera alerts
  • Built-in Bluetooth to allow direct integration with Escort Live!
  • New quick-detach magnetic windshield-mount
  • Smartcord with USB power support
  • Firmware/Database updatable

Redline EX Cons:

  • The EX is on the larger side of windshield-mounted radar detectors

Redline EX Review Conclusion:

  • The new EX is one of the best radar detectors available for both highway and now city driving

Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Algorithm

When investing in a radar detector, two of your biggest concerns are the EX's ability to sniff out real police radar and police laser threats and its ability to filter out false alerts, here is why.

Police departments across the world are now in the process of updating their equipment to the new, low power battery operated hand held digital radar guns.

All of these types of radar guns are instant on, meaning that they do NOT transmit any radar signal until the officer has a target vehicle in sight and presses the trigger.

Because of this when you select your detector, an important consideration is its ability to detect instant on miles away.

Then another problem, the anti-collision sensors that are being installed in most new cars today.

These sensors operate on the same K-Band frequency that police use and because of this, most detectors will constantly false alert when near them.

Unlike the previous model, the Escort Redline, the Redline now incorporates a dedicated filtering system called IVT which will do a much better job at filtering out K-band collision avoidance systems than the TSR filter option of the Redline.

Completely Stealth to all Radar Detector Detectors

The Redline is stealth to all radar detector detectors (or RDDs) including the Spectre, making the Redline the only windshield-mount detector of choice if you live and/or drive in Virginia or if you’re a professional driver.

Native Escort Live! Support

The biggest breakthrough this decade in the speed counter measurement community is the ability for your Redline to share historical and real time data with accuracy, with other Escort owners in the cloud.

The built-in bluetooth chipset now allows for seamless integration with Escort Live! through your iPhone and/or Android smartphone.

This enables your EX to:

  • Alert you of real time police spotted alerts
  • Alert you of real time radar and laser speed traps in your area
  • Alert you of historical speed trap locations including aircraft enforcement locations
  • Alert you of fixed photo enforcement camera locations
  • Enables you to program the advanced features of your EX through your smart phone

Easy to Read OLED Display

The Redline has an easy to read, full color OLED display.

Clear Audible Voice Alerts

The Redline is easy to understand voice alerts, which warns you of approaching threats, enabling you to keep your eyes on the road and not on your detector.

Reviewer: DERRICK DALTON from MUNFORD, TN United States  
First off, I am very disappointed in the sensitivity performance and range of the Redline EX.  I have had many radar detectors over the years, and honestly do not understand how or why a radar detector that is on the same platform, and is the replacement for the Redline, plus the upgrades, Bluetooth, BSM, segmentation KA/K, and the sensitivity isn't the same WHY? If Escort is listening to their consumers, why would they advertise this radar detector is comparable in range/sensitivity, because its NOT.I am very disappointed in the range/sensitivity the upgrades are good.I would recommend trying out the product for 30 days, and make your own determination if is or isn't for you.  Mike and the radarbusters staff customer service is TOP NOTCH!!!!!!!!  I have ALWAYS received the best customer service from Mike and his team.  I will be dong business with them in the near future, I am just waiting for the next new radar.
