Video Review Escort Redline Radar Detector

Beware of websites that offer the Escort Redline at substantially discounted prices. These models are likely grey market (which won't carry a warranty) or are stale stock that is being blown out of inventory. This is common practice on sites like Amazon, eBay, Overstock and other general product websites.

Our Escort Redlines are always the most fresh and updated versions directly from Escort and come with the full manufacturer's warranty.

Escort Redline Radar Detector Review

Escort Redline Review Summary

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

Escort Redline Pros:

  • The Escort Redline has extreme detection range - greater than 8-times the range of a police radar gun
  • Escort's Dual front facing antenna design maximizes sensitivity to all police bands
  • This Escort is to all radar detector detectors (RDDs) including the Spectre III/IV
  • Ability to segment the Ka-band spectrum enabling the Escort Redline faster scanning and longer range.
  • Can filter out some of the false alerts caused by the anti-collision sensors installed in new cars today
  • Easy to read LED display
  • Clear digital voice alerts

Escort Redline Cons:

  • The Escort Redline is not as effective as the Escort Max 360, the Escort iX, or the new Escort Redline EX at filtering out K-band CAS systems

Escort Redline Review Conclusion:

  • The Escort Redline is one of the best radar detectors available for highway and rural driving

Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Algorithm

When investing in a radar detector such as the Escort Redline two of your biggest concerns are the Escort Redline’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.

Because of this Escort developed TSR filtering algorithm for the Escort Redline.

This enables the Escort Redline to sniff out and alert to these low power radar guns at over 8 times their capture distance, while also having the ability to block out some of those annoying false alerts.

Stealth to all Radar Detector Detectors

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

Escort Live! Ready

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

By interfacing the Escort Redline with the optional Bluetooth power cord will enable you to connect to the Escort Live! community through your iPhone and/or Android smartphone.

This enables your Escort Redline 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 Escort Redline through your smart phone

Easy to Read LED Display

The Escort Redline has an easy to read, bright red LED display.

Additional features of the Escort Redline include:

  • Bar Graph – identifying the signal strength of the threat
  • SpecDisplay – identifies the actual numeric frequency of the police radar signal
  • 5 levels of brightness including full dark mode

Clear Audible Voice Alerts

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

User Preferences Programming

You can access the advanced programming features of your Escort Redline by pressing the buttons on your Escort Redline, enabling you to:

  • Sensitivity – City, Highway, Auto, AutoNoX
  • Ka band segmentation
  • RDR On/Off
  • Display meter options
  • Audible tones
  • Automute – On/Off
  • Voice – On/Off

Included Accessories

Your Escort Redline comes shipped to your door with everything you need including:

  • NEW - Sticky Cup windshield mount
  • 12-volt power cable
  • Carrying case

Motorcycle Use and Accessories

When accessorized with the proper motorcycle mount, external warning device, and weather protection, your Redline becomes one of the best choices you can make for your motorcycle.

External Warning Devices: The Redline does have an external earphone jack, which you can plug into your motorcycle sound system. However, we would recommend the Legal Speeding HARD system, which is a wireless heads up display.

Weather Protection: There are several websites that sell “motorcycle detector boxes,” but we don’t recommend them. Instead, go to your local CVS and buy a child’s size shower cap. It’s cheaper and will protect your Escort just as well.

5 of 5 Best yet August 29, 2016
Reviewer: robert Depew from Erie, PA United States  
Had to ditch my beltronics 995, it gave up the ghost due to heat and years of faithful service.bought in 2009. Purchased the Redline after reviewing many reviews and video's. it has already saved me 2 tickets. It beeped and i wondered why. 10 sec went by and i thought just a false. It beeped again and though maybe slow down and move to right lane, BMW Flew past me, !/4 mile later NY state Trooper was pulling over that BMW. Rang is longer than what I imagined it would be. i have it set to XR Settings,  Dealt with Mike they had to ship from an alternate source as they were out when I  ordered. It was delivered before i went on my trip.  If you are thinking of getting one. Get it

4 of 5 Purchasing thru Radar Busters June 21, 2016
Reviewer: Murgie from Williamstown, WV United States  
Very easy way to get an awesome detector.  10% off was super nice also.  :)

Only compliant, I wish I knew that delivery had a signature required.  It may have been in the details and I completely missed but knowing that one detail, I would have made other arrangements.
