Default Check FR message Redline EX

First time Iíve ever seen this message. Did it less that 10 minutes after startup this morning. Did a search on the forums and supposedly this means the check the front receiver? That message was only on the screen for just a couple of seconds and then it went off. Seems to be working fine. Do I need to be concerned?

Iím assuming, yeah. I plugged it into the laptop this weekend to check for updates and defender updates and it didnít say anything about software or firmware updates. How do you check what firmware it has?

Well it did it again this morning, pretty much an exact repeat of what it did yesterday morning. Didnít even get 10 minutes away after taking off when that ďCheck FRĒ message popped up so I guess Iíll be sending it to you guys.

Are you using escort live app? I have seen that the ZR3 option is on by default and if turned on without having a set of zr3's connected it Will cause this message.

Iím pretty sure I tuned the ZR3 option off the day I got my Redline EX but Iíll definitely check to see if I did. I only got that message just twice but I havenít used my detector in a while because I have yet to add another piece of Velcro to the dash to mount it to since I changed trucks again...lol.

But Iíll be sure to look into that, thanks.

The ZR3 option only does something if you have a ZR3 or ZR4 connected. What it shows in the app is not a cause of concern or related to Check FR message in any way.

If youíre still getting that message you need to send the unit in to get it checked out.
