    Default Redline not picking up anything except X-band

    My wife has the Redline in her car and I have the V1. The other night I noticed at every toll booth the Redline did not pick up K or KA. I thought the signal being emitted was out of tune until I realized there's 6-8 different radar units at these toll booths. I ran the V1 and Redline side by side, through known fale areas---the Redline did absolutely nothing except on X-band. I did a reset, checked all bands on, TSR off, etc. is there a way to do a "hard reset" before sending to Escort?

    It needs to go back sounds like that whole side isn't working.

    Do a factory reset on the unit. If that does not work send it back for a new one.

    Sounds like the K/Ka antenna is dead, though interference with another RD can cause issues. I would send it in ether way.
