$549.95

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!

PASSPORT 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.

Optional SmartCord® Live for $39.95 with detector purchase. 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 PASSPORT 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......

Comments about ESCORT RedLine:

This Escort is my first Radar Detector and I love it. My speaker went out in less than 6 months of having it. I was gonna send it in to have it repaired, but I can't be without it. So, I got a speaker that fits perfect in the cup holder and it works perfectly. My big brother who is a motorcycle racer got me this and told me that he got me the best radar detector on the market. And he was right!!!! Anytime I drive another car I bring my Escort with me, in most cases. If I don't bring my Escort I don't speed, and it feels like I'm not getting anywhere. Lol!!!

    Comments about ESCORT RedLine:

    I drive mostly Highway and Town/city driving. Redline alerts mildly in the city/town with sometimes false K band. (Can be totally configured manually to alert maybe 2-3times) I don't mind the false alerts with auto mute.

    As for KA band (cops 99.9% of the time) Caught a NYS Trooper around a bend on the expressway, saved me from a ticket (75 in a 55)

        Comments about ESCORT RedLine:

        I had a Max 2 detector and I was worried about all the stories about it breaking or falling apart so with that being said I return it and got the Redline and by far it's never let me down very sensitive and picks up radar far miles away I love it!!! It dose have it cons but what detector doesn't I do get some false alerts from K-band but I learn to deal with it also over time you will learn to know if it's a false or a real threat

        But bottom line if you want a detector that will give you maximum performance ,long range and to detect radar this is the one to go with no auto lock outs or anything like that if they have any kind of signal around you will know and that's what I like about it...

        My 2nd Redline since 2011. Newest version has the Superwide Ka band to fine tune alerts. Ordered both factory direct with great customer service. Don't leave home in a Porsche or Vette without a Redline.

        Comments about ESCORT RedLine:

        REDLiNE is one of the best detectors I have ever had. The range is impeccable and the accuracy is amazing. The only downside is the amount of false alarms when driving through the city. However, I don't mind it too much because I would much rather have a highly sensitive radar that throws me a false alarm every now and then, versus a dull sensitivity radar that doesn't ever go off. It's stupid simple to learn how to use, and the reliability is amazing.

        I would recommend to anyone.
