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 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…
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.
