Blackvue has just released their new DR750S-2CH dashcam which is a pretty big update over their previous top of the line, the DR650S-2CH. I’ve been running the 650S for the better part of a year now and have been running the 750S for the past two weeks or so. After spending time comparing the cameras and having a chance to discuss things with Blackvue, I’ve been very impressed with the improvements Blackvue has made and I’d like to share with you the Top 20 Changes & Improvements between the DR650S-2CH and DR750S-2CH.

You can purchase the DR750S-2CH here.

Differences Between the Escort 9500ix, S75G, iX, and Max2

GPS-based plug and play detectors with autolockouts are one of Escort’s bread and butter style detectors. They’re easy to use and very popular, especially with the general consumer, because you can mount them on your windshield and they’ll begin learning the false alerts around town automatically. Other detectors may offer lockouts as well, but due to patent limitations the lockouts are either done manually or handled by a phone. Escort’s detectors can do autolockouts automatically, no phone required, and that’s a big selling point.

In this article we’re going to take a look at some very similar detectors, feature-wise, and look at the improvements that have been made across the generations.

I popped mine open recently (as you guys know, it’s the same thing as the R3, just without the GPS chip) and we’ve been having a discussion on RDF about the internals¬†here. Anyway, let’s take a look at a few photos of what you’ll find inside the new Unidens.

Uniden R3 vs. Escort Redline EX: Comparison and Review

If you’re looking for a high end, high performance radar detector with good filtering and GPS functionality, two of your top picks are the Uniden R3¬†($399) and Escort Redline EX ($599). Both detectors are great choices and each one offers features and benefits the other does not. The R3 even offers better performance than the Redline EX and costs $200 less, but the Redline EX offers more convenience and several other helpful features that you may want or need that would justify its higher price tag. Which one should you pick? Let’s take a closer look at both detectors.

How to Set Up & Configure the Escort Redline EX

Would you like to program your Redline EX for maximum performance while also cutting down on the false alerts? Let’s take a look at the different settings and options available with the new Escort Redline EX. You can take a look at everything in the Redline EX Quick Reference Guide.¬†Here let’s go ahead the different settings in more detail to both explain and show you what they do.

Now you can adjust these options either through your detector (press and hold the “Mark” and “Sens” buttons to get into the menu) or you can simply use the Escort Live app which is much easier. The order of the menu options is different between the detector and the app, some options are only available through the app, and some options are only available in the detector. (I’ll point out the differences when applicable.) We’ll run through the order of the options as they show up in the app.

Escort Redline EX Review

The brand new¬†Escort Redline EX¬†is the detector that enthusiasts have been asking Escort for for years, and here it is! A Redline with improved BSM filtering and GPS? Add in Bluetooth to boot? Sounds great! It took Escort more time than we hoped to come out with such a detector and since then some stiff competition has come out in the form of the Uniden R3¬†($399) and the Radenso Pro SE¬†($499), but how does the Redline EX ($599) compare, especially given that it offers some excellent features that the competition doesn’t?

Well my Redline EX arrived just a few days ago and I, along with many other enthusiasts, have been feverishly testing our copies to learn all about it. How is it looking? Is it all it’s cracked up to be? Does it set itself apart from the competition? Let’s see how the Redline EX stands, what it has to offer, and if it deserves the title of “Best Radar Detector.”

Note: There’s different places to get it depending on if you’re in the US or in Canada.
