works well but don"t get the idea you can speed, when the police use instant on and your the one they are looking at your done if speeding. Lets you know if they are in the area if they are useing the radar, some of them leave it on all the time , but others turn it on for a single car.

The RedLine is a very sensitive RD that alarms you of threats but is not obnoxious like the Beltronics STI. The tone and volume are loud enough to get your atention even with the radio playing, but it goes to a mild setting that lets you know the threat is still around. I have not had any issues with mine so far and am happy with the purchase.

Having been on the ground floor when the original Cincinnati Microwave forst opened, I have had experience with several of the Escort models. Most recently I had the Escort 7500, but the Escort Redline is again a major step forward.

I just bought Redline Radar and is give me a warning very far that way i know when to slow down. Most of the radar it go off too late and i also install a ZR4 laser jammer which are compatible with my Redline also so i get far ahead warning and laser jammer make it even better.

I bought an escort 8500 passport X50 about 10 years ago and used it on my Buell motorcycle to go on a 10,000 mile trip to Quebec and back to California and other various cross country trips by motorcycle. I found that if the thing gave me one chirp of Ka signal there was a smoky out there. The thing saved me from a possible ticket many times and paid for itself after the first two such encounters. I also noticed that different state patrol all use their radar differently. California highway patrol leave their's on all the time and are easy to detect. Nevada will hit you at the last minute coming towards you to also get a good visual (which is required) and not give you a slowdown opportunity. They will also hide behind trucks on two lanes like #95 and pop into the passing lane and then drop back after getting a reading. Goldfield to Tonapah on 95 is one I remember. I could tell you lots of stories. I also liked the digital voltmeter on the passport which reads charging system voltage when not detecting radar. The unit is bulletproof as I have used it in a plastic bag in the rain on my motorcycle and it has nicks and scratches from dropping it in the house. I try to treat it right but it seems to take a little abuse ok. It has been a quality product for me and I highly recommend it. The damned thing is still perking and I will continue to depend on it. The redline has all these capabilities and some more. Although I have not used it for as many years as my passport it does seems to detect at slightly greater distances. The jury is still out on that because I do not have many years experience with it yet. It also has the digital voltmeter although the instructions don't make that very clear at all. The main reason I bought it is because of my excellent experience with the Passport and because my wife has figured out how to use it in her car and she has a tendency to leadfoot which jacks up our auto insurance. She has learned to use the binders when the Ka goes off. Although the California Highway Patrol was

Traveled from central Texas to North Georgia on I-20. Reception of Ka band up to 2 miles. Auto no x setting very useful in urban areas. Several false readings on K band (the new X band noise?) Picked up all stationary radar traps well ahead of other motorists who had radar detectors in vehicles. Was concerned in east Tx where saw many DPS with no alarm until picked up some instant on/off Ka band signals. They were not running continuous radar. Eastern Alabama 55 zone with unmarked cars was true test. Passed with flying colors. Well worth the price. Never picked up any laser.
