Radenso DS1: Initial Test Results

So you know that big 34.7 shootout I posted recently? Well the real reason for that test was to do a little beta testing. 😉 I also brought along an unreleased Radenso DS1 and it turns out it’s looking like a beast.

The Radenso DS1 is a single antenna detector (so no arrows) and it features a very impressive level of sensitivity.

Here’s how it compares to the competition:Radenso DS1 Test Data

So yeah, the DS1 beat out everything else including the R7, RL360c, V1 Gen2, and all the other big dogs that normally top shootouts. Wow…

Now keep in mind that this is only one test against one radar gun (DSR 2X on 34.7) in one situation with one copy of the detector so we still need a lot more test results, but so far things are looking extremely promising with this new detector!

I don’t have permission to share anything else about the DS1 at this time besides what’s shared above. Once Radenso is ready, they’ll go ahead and start releasing more info about the detector and I’ll have more info to share with you then too.

Until then, you can join the full discussion on RDF here.

Great job so far Radenso!

    So I just bought one from Best Buy. Despite the specifications listing Blue Tooth as a feature, the DS-1 DOES NOT come with a functional Blue Tooth radio. Company said “we will enable it in the next couple of firmware updates. No, we don’t know when.”
    That’s some BS! Who ships a product with missing features that are advertised? BEWARE

    Also, the magnetic attachment point is extremely weak, not at all like the Escort models. I have serious concerns with using it while attached to my motorcycle windscreen! On the plus side, since the Blue Tooth is missing, the alerts tomes are very loud, much better than my old Uniden R3. I just retuned the Escort 360 Max for this half baked Ds-1.

    Update, the magnetic mount is in fact not usable on a motorcycle! The smallest bump and the detector falls off. Had to duct tape it to get through my trip. Now returning this turd back to Best Buy.

    1. That makes sense. For motorcycles I’m assuming you’d want a custom mount that screws into the screw thread on top of the detector or an alternate solution other than the factory windshield mount.

    And yet the 360Max which weighs much more did just fine on the motorcycle with the magnetic mount. This thing is half baked!

    sorry, but no rear antenna is an instant hard pass.
