Default Escort Redline Review: Expert Software Makes this Detector a Wolf in Wolf's Clothing

The Veil Guy reviews RedLine with the latest "Expert Software".

Click here to go to the review on Veil Guy's website.

Excerpt:
Quote:
Quite simply, I believe this to be the very best windshield mount radar detector yet produced, not just because of its no-holds-barred sensitivity to all radar bands of X, K, and Ka or its ability to hide from RDDs (radar detector detectors) or even its ability to detect new police laser guns, but because of its refinement, balance, and unique capabilities enabled through the use of band-segmentation and its accompanying rejection filtering mode.

This detector does two seemingly incompatible things--it provides extreme range but doesn't punish you with excessive falsing like older designed radar detectors (think Valentine One) may. That's not to say that doesn't false at all. But it is far more liveable than others. Escort's engineering team, I believe, has accomplished an extremely difficult balancing act.

Fortunately, for all of us, Escort provides their TSR (traffic sensor rejection) filter which I found not only effectively filters our K-band alerts from the road-side traffic flow sensors, but also effectively filters out spurious alerts from these Hella-based radar transponders. What is even better is that Escort has shortened the delay in qualifying alerts to around 0.8 seconds, enough to be above the traffic sensor transmission durations, but below enough to still catch I/O or (the rare quick-trigger). Originally TSR delayed alerts by more than a second, which was a bit too long for my tastes. Now that is has been finely tuned, my inclination is to leave TSR on. It appears to do a very effective job at filtering out a lot of junk noise.
so should one leave it on?
how much would it influence overall performance by having it on all the time?

No one is more interested in driving with a quick detector.

Perhaps you could enable TSR with BS/RDR settings and try it for yourself.

If you don't experience traffic sensors or encounter many of these vehicles that use K transponders perhaps left it off. Just be cognizant that these vehicles can really startle you. Just be prepared for it. Wouldn't want to hear that you got rear-ended!

One other thing I forget to mention.

If any of you guys are interested in starting to get notifications again, please start following the blog or registering using google's subscription. We are changing the old delivery mechanism and those existing subscribers may no longer get the announcement of new posts.

...And if you like what you've read, please share or like the article on FB and other SM sites. We have a bit of catching up to do!

Thanks.
