If you have been waiting for a radar detector that is just pure all-out performance, well you now have what you have been waiting for. The Escort Redline radar detector is a no-frills performance detector. It may have the longest detection range of any current device. Escort states that the Redline has the best detection range available. The Redline uses a dual antenna design that is tuned specifically for each band. This helps provide very long range detection abilities, including POP mode.

The Redline is not just a great long range detector for radar. Escort states that the Redline is capable of detecting small amounts of laser light even if the source is off-axis.

While it may not have the filtering of many other detectors, the Redline uses digital signal processing to keep the number of false alerts down while still providing long range detection. The detector has three modes of operation Highway (full sensitivity) Auto (filtered mode) and Auto NoX (filtered but without X-Band).

The Redline has voice alerts, and a simple but clear display with brightness controls, and auto muting. One of the best features is that it uses the same magnesium case as the Bel STi Driver. This means it is completely shielded and undetectable by radar detector detectors.

The latest version of the Redline includes two additional features! Superwide Ka Segment Adjust allows you to scan only the Superwide Ka bands used in your country or region for faster detection. Radar Detector Rejection (RDR) gives you the option to filter out false signals from other radar detectors nearby.

The Redline radar detector by Escort offers long range detection and high sensitivity usually only found in their high-end radar detector systems. Those that are looking for pure high performance and are willing to tolerate more false alerts will appreciate the Redline and the coverage it provides.


Three High-Resolution Display Modes

The Escort Redline features a powerful display, which has 3 possible modes:
  • In the standard bar graph mode, the Escort Redline will show one band that was detected and a bar graph representing the signal strength.
  • In ExpertMeter™ mode, the Redline can identify band and relative signal strength of up to 8 radar signals at once.
  • In SpecDisplay™ mode, the detector will show the band and actual frequency being detected.

Includes SmartCord MuteDisplay™ Power Cord

The SmartCord MuteDisplay™ accessory is a unique power cord with a power-on indicator, an alert lamp that warns you of radar and laser, and a convenient mute button right on the lighter plug! It's the perfect addition for any car when reaching the detector's mute button on the windshield is a stretch. Also, for discreet night driving, put your Redline detector in the dark mode, and use the SmartCord MuteDisplay™ for visual alerts. Other drivers won't know you have a detector.

Includes Travel Case

This radar detector comes complete with a high quality travel case! This durable case is perfect for transporting your radar detector and all accessories from one vehicle to another. It is also perfect for storing your Redline to discourage theft when you are away from the vehicle.

  1. Best for me. review by none on 2/6/2015

    This review is from: Escort RedLine Radar Detector (Electronics) Let me start off by saying I should have purchased this thing fifteen years ago! In that span of time I have received three speeding tickets, usually going 15 to 17 miles over the posted speed limit. I am seventy years old now so I have averaged about one ticket every five years. Don't get me wrong I am not a speeder, but living in California with police hiding behind every corner and at the bottom of most hills it's hard to not gain a little speed and get caught! All my tickets have occurred on freeways, or main arteries into or out of cities. Never on city streets. That's the main reason I purchased the Escort Redline. I needed some help with highway driving. I did not want to write a review till I tested this detector for at least four months. I am retired so I enjoy driving on long trips around California. Below I am listing the aspects of the Redline that please me the most. 1. I purchased the super sticky windshield mount with it, as many reviewers were not happy with the mount that came with the detector. I couldn't be happier. I mounted the Redline in the middle of my windshield below the rearview mirror about four or five inches up from the dashboard on my Toyota Corolla. It catches everything there, radar and laser! The unit has never fell down or come loose and wiggled around. I know in Calif. you are not suppose to mount objects there, but I have not had a problem so far and it's not easy to notice from outside the car. It's very easy to put on and take off while driving or not. I always remove it when parking my vehicle. 2. Now to radar detection. I have all the time in the world when the Calif. Highway Patrol or local police hit me with their Radar guns or moving Radar inside their vehicles. The signal usually stars off slowly on the bar graft and then gradually increases in strength and volume as you get closer to the source. In the past the police would always nab me while cresting over a hill or going down the hill where they would be waiting knowing my speed could increase very easily. Now my Redline goes off before I even get to the top of the hill. You can't beat that! 3. I did not grow up with all these new electronic gadgets people use these days in and out of their cars, so I despise having to navigate complicated menu's and/or settings. It drives me crazy! The Redline is so easy to use and navigate that a chimpanzee could do it. I'm not kidding. I do it while driving down the highway at 65 miles an hour. I disable X band and like to use the pilot setting with the moving dot scanning and flashing back and forth. Looks cool! I keep all the other settings pretty much at the default settings it shipped with. But it's fun to experiment with now and then. 4. Now to Laser. This is a entirely different animal. This is like getting sucker punched by a bully in High School. It's kind of over before you know or realize what just happened. The CHP or local police are not far away when they hit you with it and your detector lights up immediately like a Christmas tree and at what sounds like full volume. The voice states laser warning and then you see the officer almost immediately either standing next to his patrol car or parked sideways to the road with the window rolled down and him pointing the laser gun in your direction. Almost every time I have been hit with the laser he was hiding right around a corner, one time behind a tree! Really scary as it happens so fast. The six or seven times this has happen to me the hair on the back of my head and neck stood straight up. Each time I immediately looked down at my speedometer and saw I was not speeding, big relief as it's so sudden. I have never been hit by laser from behind or from a moving patrol vehicle. I think the latter is impossible with laser. I don't have a laser jammer but do have a laser shield on the front of my license plate. So far so good. Now for anyone who drives in the Los Angeles area, beware of the 5 freeway from the 405 interchange to about the 126 interchange near Valencia. Also the first ten miles or so after turning North on the 14 traveling towards Palmdale. I call this section "Laser Alley". Most of my laser hits come from here. You will get hit here!! No doubt in my mind. Most laser hits come near towns or cities not out on the open road. There they like to use the Radar. 4. I love this Redline detector and just wish I would have purchased it sooner! Hope this review helps, Paul R Stapp. Why no voting buttons?

  2. performance of Redline review by Jacky Ng on 6/26/2013

    Done very well on Ka band, but does not reasonably sensitively respond to K band fixed road side photo radar.

  3. The Redline has everything, great buy! review by C6 Vet on 2/19/2013

    Used to avoid speed traps I installed the Redline with a mirror mount in my C6 and the forward location of the controls are perfectly placed to provide easy access.

  4. Great product, great shipping to NZ review by skylinegtr96 on 12/5/2012

    Great product, has improved the safety of my driving greatly.

  5. Wonderful wonderful Product really work review by BLAZE on 12/7/2011

    My redline is awesome!!!!! It works best on the highway but still works great around town... I live in salt Lake City utah where the cops are totally ridiculous !!! The cops here are tricky and scandalous, so when im in traffic and i get a laser or a Ka band alert i hit the brakes and ive gotten away 3 times sso far!!! Ive only had my redline for 1 month!!! GREAT PRODUCT!!!! COPS SUCK!!

  6. Well made unit. review by jakfrost on 5/15/2011

    In Porsche 993, in very hostile territory, i.e. illegal to even have in the vehicle. Works well and love the 'voice alert' feature, also the ability to view the actual frequency of the alert. Completely useless against 'instant on' Ka, and 'Laser' of course. And more and more of the local LEO's are cruising in radio cars with their finger resting on the 'trigger'. Not leaving the units on like they used to...not much chance if you are alone on the road, at night. OUCH! Up on the up side the VG2 detectors seems unable to 'detect' the unit.

  7. A good solid reliable detector review by NZRoady on 1/9/2011

    The Escort redline is a very good sensitive detector. I live in New Zealand, and have found it particularly good for marked / unmarked police car detection as well as finding unfamiliar fixed units. We do have a lot of mobile redflex vans here though, and they often hide behind trees and bushes! I've had the unit for just over six months now and it has probably almost paid for itself (so far no tickets). Detection of redflex vans can still be difficult, and more range would still be of great help. Although it gives some false alerts, they are not excessive, and it is very easy to mute if required anyway. I haven't used any other detectors, but I still figure this is one of the best out there. With even better redflex detection it would get 5 stars, but having said that, there probably isn't a detector on the marked that can better it yet.

  8. PASSPORT iQ RATING review by JEFF on 11/8/2010


  9. Radar Killer review by Tristan on 11/8/2010

    In my region, Using radar detector is prohibited. For this reason, I couldnt use the glass or the car can not put my front of the car. If cops saw it, I dont wanna think what they do...
