Escort’s out with their latest radar detector
they’ve nicknamed “the muscle car” of all radar detectors. In their press release VP of New Product Development Tim Cooner say’s they took the RedLine out to the Speed Measurement Labs annual shootout and measured signal detection at an eye-popping 13 miles distance. And, yes, I’m sure the 13 miles was on a flat track in the desert – but it’s still an impressive measurement. Priced at $449 this model will appeal to the diehard radar fan and is also compatible with their Laser Shifter ZR4 (laser blocker). New features include dual antennae, totalshield technology to make the detector undetectable by the fuzz, programmable alert lamp, specdisplay to provide numeric radar frequency for any signal, programmable Ku-band for European travel, detects and decodes up to 64 safety warning messages.
Escort recently released their new radar detector known as the Redline, where this model brings dual antennas to the core in order to provide a much longer range compared to competing products. According to Escort, this detector is able to recognize radar as well as laser signatures from as far as 13 miles away - which ought to be far enough for you to slow down in time before you get slapped with a speeding ticket. If you're always on the go and love putting the pedal to the metal, then the Escort Redline ought to be your cup of tea as it ships this August for $499.95.
