Escort Redline 360c Announced

This morning Escort released the new Redline 360c. It is an extremely impressive looking radar detector, and it retails for $749. Here are some of the key features and things to know about Escort’s new top-of-the-line radar detector.

Update: You can now read my Redline 360c review. (It turns out reality is pretty different from expectations…)

I’ve got my Redline 360c on order and it will be arriving tomorrow morning. As soon as it arrives I’ll be doing an unboxing livestream on YouTube. Plus this weekend I’ll be out testing the new Redline 360c against all the top options.

Until then, let’s take a look at some of the highlights from today’s official launch event. I will be testing and verifying all these claims, of course, but here’s what Escort told us about the new Redline 360c:

Redline 360c

Redline 360c Features & Highlights

  • Redline with Arrows
  • Stealth, RDD immune
  • New M12 platform
    • Features 2 front antennas & 1 rear antenna, all with LNA’s
    • M12 is like the M7 in Max Ci with some LNA changes
    • Front antenna detects X/K/Ka, rear antenna only detects K/Ka
  • 6 dB better sensitivity or 2x the range than the Redline EX
  • Meets or exceeds the performance of remotes like Max Ci 360
  • Longer range than the Uniden R7
  • Better BSM filtering than Max 360c, but still has some BSM falses
  • Low speed muting and automatic GPS lockouts
  • Improved MRCD/CT detection, longer range, and fewer false alerts
  • Bluetooth, but no open API like the Valentine 1
  • WiFi for cloud integration and automatic updates, 2.4 GHz only
  • New SDR architecture, detector is reconfigurable in software (I don’t think this is the same as what Radenso is doing)
  • Escort is heavily advertising Artificial Intelligence for false alert filtering (using automatic GPS lockouts, updatable BSM filtering, and cloud support… again very different from Radenso who’s using neural networks and inferencing)

In short, Escort is claiming this detector will be able to do it all.

The Redline 360c should have extremely long range, excellent false alert filtering, automatic GPS lockouts, cloud integration over BT and WiFi, automatic updates, MultaRadar detection, RDD immunity, arrows, the works…

Buy a Redline 360c

How good is it in practice, really? Time to find out… 🙂

Update: This detector looks to have some serious issues at launch. I would recommend first checking out my Redline 360c test results as well as checking out my initial impressions of the detector before purchasing.

    Wow. $750. I’m sure it is awesome and does a lot of things, but is it $300 worth of an improvement over the R7? I am anxious for your tests and review. Also anxious for Radenso to deliver their new one. I love detector wars!

    If it can detect MRCD & MRCT in time to save my driver license I would pay $1750 , no problem.! Are you listening Escort.???. A Valentine one Gen 2 cannot detect MRCD or MRCT,,, PERIOD.! Time will tell.

    Did you mean “Is it detectable by Spectre Elite Radar dertector detectors, or not?”

    The Red Line detectors are all undetectable

    Figures, just over a week ago Escort customer service told me “There are no new detectors coming out this year”. Submitted my return after dealing with the most rude support I’ve ever encountered. Too bad support isn’t near as good as the detectors.

    So is this the best windshield detector? I need to buy one. Between this V1 get 2 or R7 or this one – which one?

    1. We really need to wait for testing and the full review before we can say so. I’m finding a lot of initial issues using this detector.

  1. I have been running the new Redline 360c for a few days now and compared to my Uniden R7, which I have moved to my F150, it has basically zero false alerts. Quite as a mouse unless real threat is present! Worth every penny I spent.

    1. Great to hear your experience!

    Vortex
    Can you please do a video with showing us how to setup the Redline 360c. Plus what settings you would use please. Did you do your testing last weekend?

    1. That video will come after my testing, initial impressions, and other top priority videos. Settings we’re still experimenting with. I’ve already started posting long distance test results and rampup / arrow videos on the forums. I’m working on posting that info here next.

    Watched the review for the Redline 360c and I trust Vortex platform. I tell you, I am a highly disappointed with the results. I am not drinking the Kool Aid from Escort in regards to the new Escort Redline 360c. Let’s get it fixed Escort for $749.
