Dual Antenna Design

RedLine's new twin antenna design provides an all new level of radar performance. Tuned specifically for each radar band, this approach enables RedLine to deliver the longest possible warning on all radar bands, including the latest "POP" mode.

Compatible With ESCORT Live!

ESCORT RedLine is compatible with ESCORT Live, our award-winning app and exclusive real-time ticket-protection network, which warns you of upcoming alerts received and reported by other users in the area, and gives you access to local speed limit data for over-speed alerts. Just purchase the optional SmartCord® Live along with the RedLine and download the app for free.

Ka Segment Adjust

Ka Segment Adjust allows you to select which segments of the Superwide Ka band are scanned by RedLine. Radar Detector Rejection (RDR) minimizes false alerts by rejecting alerts caused by other nearby radar detectors. Toggling RDR off will increase radar detection performance with potentially more false Ka alerts.

Traffic Sensor Rejection

The ESCORT RedLine includes our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software to eliminate false alerts.

Next Gen Laser Detection

RedLine's multiple laser sensors are strategically positioned to detect even the smallest amount of laser light, including off-axis signals.

What is included with the RedLine?
The RedLine comes complete with a travel case, quick release window mount, coiled SmartCord, owner's manual, one year warranty and 30 day money back trial period.
Is it the most sensitive model available? vs. 8500 X50, vs. 9500ix, vs. iQ?
The Redline is the most sensitive dash model available on the market but it does not have the GPS features of the Passport 9500ix. The Passport 8500 X50 Black, the Passport iQ and the Passport 9500ix have similar radar and laser performance, but the 8500 X50 does not include the GPS features. The Passport iQ combines radar/laser detection and a full GPS navigation system in one convenient model.
Can it be used overseas?
We do not monitor frequencies used overseas, but many customers travel abroad with their Passport.
What is Expert Mode?
Expert Mode will show you up to 8 radar signals at the same time and will show relative signal strength and associated Band of each signal.
Where are they illegal?
Radar detectors are completely legal to use in non-commercial vehicles in 49 states. Virginia and Washington D.C. are the only places in the United States that currently ban radar detectors. Radar detector use in commercial vehicles has been prohibited in the U.S. since 1995 and radar detectors are also illegal in most Canadian provinces. We do not track detector regulations in other countries.
What is the warranty period?
All our products ordered factory direct come with a full one-year factory warranty. We also offer an Extended Service Plan on select models that will provide two additional years of warranty for $29.95.

If you are looking for a high quality detector this is the one. The new firmware negated the only weakness this RD once had which was slow response, now that it has been taken care of, this is the best overall detector money can buy, it has ridiculous range, will pick up sneaky radar traps no matter how talented the officer, and the filtering is much more refined than the other guys top offering, you can actually live with the Redline with other people in the car, rather than constant falses and flashing arrows. If you have the money and are deciding if this detector is worth it, I assure you it is. You will be shocked at how far it sees, and how it seems to see through all manner of trees, hills, buildings and around corners. You will not regret spending the money after the first time it saves you from a ticket. Do it.

The radar detector works great, and if you need to buy one they will talk to you all day. However, once you own one you have to wait for longer than expected hold times and the same people that were so nice when you were a potential sale suddenly don't have time to discuss......

      Fantastic product, no issues from Canada's coast to coast. Read the manual and don't expect to detect around the mountains of BC and this detector will be worth what you pay for it. I've logged over 189,000 kms since 2015 and no citations, if you have issues you can't read or your expectations are unrealistic. I use the 9500IX for around town and the Redline for the longer trips

        I bought my Redline about 3 years ago and it is still working well. I go through VA with no problem and the range is very good. I have been running Radar Detectors since 1976 so do know a thing or two. The only thing I see now is the new warring systems on newer cars starting to give false K Band. It is not be problem because most of the Radar units are Ka or they are using Lazar. I am thinking about the 360 or the Ix.
        The negative post on are not reflective to my experience. My unit has been worth every dime I paid.

            Easy to use and program the frequencies and its undetectable. The range and the accuracy is superb. Most people's complaining here about no detections false alarms, etc either don't understand the use of the detector and have improperly set it or don't realize that sometimes officers do not have their radars on all the time, and use other methods to gauge speed in which the case nothing is going to alert you except paying attention to the road. When the radars are on, the Redline will detect miles ahead. Combined with the App and Live Cord, and Blinders, it is the best system out there to avoid speed traps and tickets. Have had it since 2013 and over 10 cross country trips later still not one citation received.

              First - don't buy this if you have lots of k band cops as the auto warning systems all have k band so it goes off all the time forcing you to shut off k band. At first I was told for $99 or $135 I could firmware update to fix this but apparently not. But as far as ka it's great. Laser is not really worth considering as it just tells you a ticket is coming assuming the narrow laser beam even set it's off.

              This is by far the best radar detector EVER. My redline recently broke due to an accident. I was going to purchase another one until I called Escort and found out that they have not updated this product basically since it came out. They just tried to sell me a 360 max over and over again. I think Escort needs to wake up and upgrade the redline. Simple, long rage, make it even better than peddling your other garbage. People want range. Everyone speeds, no one is blowing through red lights and flipping off traffic cams. I think I will hold off buying another Redline until Escort updates / makes redline even better.

              I received the redline as a gift. After I received it I tried getting use to it but the false alerts are outrageous. After I set up the smart cord(months backorder) I realized that the only way to use Escort Live is to have my phone turned on and app opened. If the screen goes off the app stops working. So now in order to use this feature I have to expect my battery to be dead quicker then normal. (frustrating). On top of that the smart cord button was jammed so it's close to impossible to mute or send out live alerts. I contacted Escort and I have a rep who was extremely rude and unprofessional. (Michael). I was excited for the redline but I can't say that anymore. I'm to the point where I don't like using it because of the amount of false alerts. And again in order to cancel out some of the false alerts i need to have my phone completely on without sleeping. 100% unsatisfied
