Exclamation RedLine "expert software" details and information (aka BS/RDR options)

We are pleased to announce the availability of a software update for the RedLine which adds the following features:
  • Ka band segmenting - The ability to enable and disable certain frequency segments of the SuperWide Ka band. ONLY expert detector users should change these settings. It is possible to disable detection of true Ka police radar.
  • RDR toggle - The ability to disable Radar Detector Rejection false alert filtering.
  • Enhanced laser detection - Now detects TruSpeedS and Laser Ally laser guns without additional laser falsing.

Escort Live SmartCord Live users can install this software update on their RedLine. Simply update your SmartCord live cord or direct wire using Detector Tools without your RedLine connected. After the cord is updated, connect the cord as you normally would use it. When you start the Escort Live app with your RedLine connected you will be prompted to update your Redline's software. Accept the update and in less than a minute your RedLine is now update with the latest software adding Ka band segment adjust and RDR toggle. Android users, it is normal to see a communication error message in Escort Live after the update is successful. Simply click OK.

For more information about Escort Live and our SmartCord Live power cords, please see our Escort Live webpage here

If you are not using an Escort SmartCord Live power cord with your RedLine then you will have to send in your RedLine for this software update. Please call us at the number in my signature to set this up. Just let the service rep know that you would like "the new RedLine software update". The update will be performed for free but we will need to charge you $14.00 for shipping and handling (plus tax for OH and MI residents). If you would also like your RedLine to be diagnosed and tuned/serviced while we have it then please let the service rep know this.
All RedLines that are serviced will receive this software.

To use the new Ka band segmenting and RDR features:
- In the RedLine's settings, turn "Ka SW" off then turn on the Ka segments that you would like the RedLine to detect.
- In Escort Live's Radar Settings, turn "Ka" off then turn on the Ka segments that you would like the RedLine to detect. If you leave "Ka" on then the segment settings will not take effect in the detector.
- RDR is listed in the "bands" settings, after TSR.

Once you have set these options they will remain set in your RedLine, even between power cyclings, until you change them or restore the unit's factory default settings.

These features are currently only planned for RedLine.

Thank you for choosing Escort Radar!

The Ka segment frequencies, in GHz, are:
Ka1 = 33.392 - 33.704
Ka2 = 33.704 - 33.896
Ka3 = 33.886 - 34.198
Ka4 = 34.184 - 34.592
Ka5 = 34.592 - 34.808
Ka6 = 34.806 - 35.166
Ka7 = 35.143 - 35.383
Ka8 = 35.378 - 35.618
Ka9 = 35.595 - 35.835
Ka10 = 35.830 - 35.998

Thank You Larry (EscortRadar) for being the enthusiast's advocate at Escort and all you have done to get these options added to the RedLine.

This takes the RedLine to the next level........a level of protection that cannot be beat by even the fastest digital radars out there today. And if we thought the detection range was great, wait until we get ahold of this.

You the man.

We could have waited a few more months to release it only through Detector Tools/Escort Live. I wasn't happy with that though. Some of you have waited long enough for these features. If you want it now, and don't mind paying for the shipping, then why not get it to you now?

Thanks guys!

This is a game changer. You buy the updated redline and escort live and you get a better detector than the STiR Plus for half the price!

Question: What happens to new buyers? Do they have the updated redline at no cost if they ask for it or do they have to pay extra? Also, do they even have to ask for it or all new redlines will be flashed?
