Reviews around car (5.00 of 5)

  • The Redline on Auto mode only goes off when the car is right by the doors.
  • But keep in mind, if you don't filter out adaptive car sensors it will be very chatty on K band
  • Also, it is never a bad idea to let someone else lead if there's another fast car out there.
  • On the other hand, there are some desolate stretches of highway in the southwestern desert where I think a person should be allowed to drive as fast as their car will go
  • (traffic sensor rejection - off reduces delay on k band due to traffic flow sensors & adaptive car sensors) - Very chatty if left offRDR off (radar detector rejection - off removes delay to find false from leaky radar detector)

Reviews around distance (4.59 of 5)

  • Have been using this for almost 3 years, great distance
  • I'd say the Redline picks up radar at a far distance enough for me to slow down before a police officer can clock me speeding
  • THE DISTANCE BOMB, but way too noisy
  • If anything, almost too far as I would slow down and be driving for a good distance thinking it was a false alarm because the source couldn't be that far away
  • it will alert you of a cop with radar on from a great distance, i mean far away
  • Read remaining 15 reviews for distance

Reviews around performance (4.47 of 5)

  • It has the best windshield mounted radar detector performance there is
  • A little expensive, but great performance.
  • I purchased the Escort Redline radar 14 December 2016 and enjoyed the performance of the radar while traveling on long trips
  • , i have been through lots of radar detectors and this one is by far the best performance you can buy its worth its price for sure
  • Extremely disappointed with this escort redline detector it functions as its suppose to but speaker blew out about 2 months of use apparently you should only use it at low volume setting cheap Cobras have longer lasting speakers clearly lack performance though looked online seems to be a very common thing, for the price you'd figure they would use quality parts, now I need to constantly be looking at the detector to see if it's blinking or until I install an external speaker which I shouldn't need to buy in the first place

Reviews around cord (4.26 of 5)

  • I have two options to update 1) send it in to Escort to be updated ($139.95) or 2) buy the ($99) Live smart cord which has a USB port which will allow me to do the update
  • The Redline does not come with a LIVE smart cord, just a regular smart cord
  • Escort does give you one year "free" when you purchase the Live smart cord
  • I thought maybe the smart cord I used was the issue, but that was not the case
  • and it can get very annoying if you want the frills of only getting alerted to for sure signals of police radar, but with the smart cord (I had a 8500 x50 with one as well

Reviews around money (4.03 of 5)

  • Not worth the money
  • Don't waste your money on any of the others, if you want a top of the line radar detector that isundetectable this is what you want in your windshield.
  • Great way to waste money
  • Do not waste money on the gps type if u are a leadfoot !!
  • Definitely worth the extra money if you want high sensitivity and range and you drive mostly open highway in rural areas

Reviews around product (3.99 of 5)

  • I paid a lot of money for this hoping for a better product
  • Just by holding it in your hand you can tell that it's an expensive well built great product
  • Product is built like a rock, and no problems with it falling off window (midwest fall season).
  • I will continue berating this product until there is a nationwide recall.
  • I've never written a review before but this product is such a failure I've been moved to do so

Reviews around detection (3.91 of 5)

  • I was impressed with the gps capability of the 9500ix that can use gps location to eliminate false detections
  • I don't care what the reviews say about superior detection range, this detector is garbage compared to the V1
  • I saw many reviews online about the amazing detection range of this unit
  • Detection is fantastic but it detect every radar out there in range that is not cop related
  • Has payed for itself although I wish that you could disable the k band detection as it goes off constantly and is annoying
  • Read remaining 21 reviews for detection

Reviews around time (3.86 of 5)

  • Saved me enough times from getting tickets to pay for itself!
  • Radar detection on K and KA band is great and laser detection does work but am not sure how effective it be if you are caught really speeding as it would not give enough time to change the speed.
  • I received a "Service" notification every time I powered on the unit and it would not work
  • In a recent drive of about 150 miles on Interstate it alarmed about 60 times
  • The few real alerts received were not enough time to have helped us much
  • Read remaining 20 reviews for time

Reviews around radar (3.83 of 5)

  • This is a excellent radar if you do highway and backwoods
  • This is the best radar detector that I have ever had, it does everything that i expected it to
  • Had this radar nearly 4 years now and no more tickets (knock on wood)
  • This radar detector absolutely useless vs low powered K band Redflex radar
  • As you are aware this Radar is very expensive to purchase

Reviews around work (3.70 of 5)

  • TSR enabled and "sens" on works pretty well against BSM (blind spot monitoring) systems on K band but it still falses a lot
  • I just recently had a city police car with K band camp out at night in an intersection where I normally get a K band false from a fast food place
  • Radar detection on K and KA band is great and laser detection does work but am not sure how effective it be if you are caught really speeding as it would not give enough time to change the speed.
  • So I disabled the K and X band (I live in Minneapolis where only laser and Ka band is used).
  • I have two old escort passports x50 (5 years) and till this day the work great

Reviews around redline (3.44 of 5)

  • As it stands now, the Redline is one of the slowest detectors on the market today, and consequently, it lacks the ability to detect many types of burst radar
  • Also, Redline is about 3 times heavier than V1 and lacks directional capability ("the arrows") which I think is THE one of the selling point of V1 as it was about 25 years ago and even as of today
  • The redline is great if you do a lot of highway driving
  • The Redline is more sensitive and picks up radar further than the 9500ix
  • one reviewer here knocked this Redline for being no better than others for Laser (more specifically LIDAR) detection.

Reviews around escort (3.44 of 5)

  • Looks like Escort has turned another customer to Valentine.
  • Insult to injury that Escort Live remains broken and unintended to
  • It cannot be returned; Escort will not honor the warranty
  • Escort Live is a waste of time and data; just use Waze instead
  • Escort is great and this has separate antennas and looks great and has the longest range

Reviews around speaker (2.49 of 5)

  • As luck would have it, within 48 hours the sound stopped working, I then searched the net for Escort Dead Speaker and voila, known issue with this unit
  • In fact, turning the POP setting on will actually DECREASE the warning distances on all frequencies except 33.8 GHz Ka (where as the POP setting on the V1 does not result in nearly as much of a range reduction and actually improves K-band sensitivity and reactivity)
  • I was driving and the sound/speaker stopped working while I was driving
  • and now its speaker was bad and can not detect ka.. Band
  • Radar worked great for about 2 years, then the sound stopped working (bad speaker, bad connections, IDK)and I got a ticket

Reviews around music (1.95 of 5)

  • Alarm is loud enough to be heard with t-tops off, windows down, and music loud enough to be heard.
  • If you do excessive Long range driving, this unit will save U a fortune...
  • but I bought redline b/c of it's supposed highway superiority.
  • Long Range (Dual Anttena)- 3 Sensitivity Modes (w/ ability to turn off X Band detection)- Very Loud (Can be heard over loud music)CON's- K Band

Reviews around band (1.76 of 5)

  • Ka band police radar (one of the more popular bands for police) is found in certain frequency ranges.
  • 35.5 Ka band on top of that which is one of the harder bands to detect
  • Preferred Escort Redline Settings: (For better performance, longer range, faster responsiveness)Highway mode (auto reduces x & k band sensitivity & false alerting,
  • Due to the high sensitivity, there is a lot of false K band alerts, even with TSR on and on Auto mode
  • X band, no big deal, K, or KA band, better behave yourself
  • Read remaining 33 reviews for band

Reviews around signal (1.62 of 5)

  • It's incredibly sensitive, does not have the best filtering, and by itself, it cannot lock out false signals
  • I can switch it to auto/no x, and 99% of the false signals are filtered out
  • My only gripe is that it does not learn the false signals like my previous 9500ci
  • but as of now have no detector that can filter out these false signals
  • Ideally, if you are approaching a stationary target you want the signal to progressively get stronger until you are at the target and then slowly and progressively ramp-down as you move away from it

Reviews around speed trap (1.48 of 5)

  • Of course, I only use this to avoid illegal speed traps!
  • It is fantastic in finding X band signals, and it doesn't ignore them as
  • It has help me detect speed traps wait before they can see me.
  • Laser would work as long as you are behind someone and it hits someone else before you get hit to get you maybe a 1 or 2 secs to react and as long as you are not speeding at 90 Miles/hr ina 55 Miles/hr zone.
  • After reading the manual and setting it up, went for a drive around popular speed traps areas and became impressed

Reviews around alert (1.44 of 5)

  • It is quite reactive on Ka band and has given me amazing alerts with I/O Ka band
  • This seems to have to do with the filter that the Redline uses to reduce false alerts, as a signal must have multiple 'passes' before it sounds an audible and visual alert
  • This is really helpful to rule out false positive alerts.
  • You start to learn where false alerts are and tune them out
  • Does its job but the K-band produces false alerts a lot

Reviews around spot (1.38 of 5)

  • TSR enabled and "sens" on works pretty well against BSM (blind spot monitoring) systems on K band but it still falses a lot
  • but now I can't use this because of all the k band alerts from new cars with blind spot radar.
  • Blind spot monitoring falses have made this once great detector, completely worthless.
  • , it was a great spot for them since I couldn't get a visual until about a few hundred feet away
  • I would have given it 5 stars but with the advent of everyone and their mother now having these blind spot sensors, there are a ton of false positives for K band.

  • You happen to be driving in a group of cars that are all going 10 MPH over the speed limit.
  • i maintained the speed limit while everyone else were getting pulled over
  • a Nokia N8 smartphone that has a built-in GPS with user-set speed limit warning
  • sure enough the speed limit drops from 55 and at the top of that hill till

Reviews around positive (1.00 of 5)

  • If I didn't see Waze showing a reported police officer, I probably would have expected this to be a false positive, however, it was a true alert
  • Because of this there are many false positives so you have to adjust it to compensate for the area where you are driving
  • I would have given it 5 stars but with the advent of everyone and their mother now having these blind spot sensors, there are a ton of false positives for K band.
  • You can store your false positives so you wont get bothered by them again
  • You can also experiment with the settings to reduce false positives.
