Default Very annoying laser alerts

I've been running with the redline ex international version for almost 6 months... I'm facing Very annoying false laser alerts ... Really every camera.. Or parking cameras or shops or even gas stations.. All vehicles mobilay systems(alarm systems implemented in modern vehicles) .. wherever environmental surrounding beems able to turn the laser alert.. My heart beat stop when i get this false alerts...On average 5-10 alerts per driving hour.. Frustrating.. looking where the police is hiding ... But no one there..Just annoying false alarms...
I had passport max before & i didn't have this problem... To be honest I regret buying it.. It Cost me here in Israel 5000 shekels=~1400$..
My request is.... Is there anyway to reduce the rate of false laser alerts?... How about adding algorithm of turning on the laser mode under "Auto" mode above certain speed...?..customized by the driver?... For example im interested in turning the laser detection just when I'm speeding above >80 km/h..?... And when I'm below that speed laser will be off!.... By this i can minimize the damn false alerts...
I wish to get a professional answer from Escort team...
Thanks..

Using Detector Tools Pro, and a USB data transfer cable connected to your computer, make sure that your RedLine EX International has the latest software installed.

I am sorry to hear this. It will need to be serviced. To set this up, contact our service department at the number in my signature below.

Maybe your RedLine EX is not detecting like it should, or you do not have both detectors set up the same (e.g. RDR off). They should detect similarly. The RedLine EX should false alert much less than RedLine, especially to vehicles with radar based technology.

The Redline does not leak , but if you have the EX and the Original right next to one another I still think some interference is possible.

Can you post a video of these two mounted on opposite ends of the WS detecting? THat would give us a better idea of what is going on. You might need something serviced. But if you have them on opposite sides of the Windshield and the EX is not detecting and the Original is, then you might have to get it serviced. Good luck

I never had the original Redline but I have had the EX for little over a year now and itís been good. I do get lots of Laser falses like the OP does but I think thatís just only because the laser receiver is just so damned sensitive, almost too sensitive. I guess itís a good thing by concept but since laser is so precise, and so quick, and so deadly accurate that really your only true defense against laser is not by detection, itís by using a jammer, and the few times your Escort Live app has told you about a marked laser location from another Escort user.
