Default Thinking up upgrading to Redline EX, but...

Now that my trusty old Redline's speaker has blown, I'm thinking it might be a good time to upgrade to the new Redline EX. Before I make the jump, I just have ONE QUESTION for current owners who use their EX with Live.

As a resident of "that state" in the mid-Atlantic, I've been running my Redline with a piece of tape over the display since 2012 when I discovered that even though it was set to Dark Mode, Live alerts would still light up the detector's screen at night. The issue has been discussed in several threads over the years, but I've yet to see where a resolution was mentioned:

http://www.escortradarforum.com/foru...ad.php?t=12089
http://www.escortradarforum.com/foru...ead.php?t=7192

Can anyone tell me with absolute certainty that Live alerts will not light up the Redline EX's display when the detector is set to Dark Mode? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

RedLine EX will not display any alerts when it is in dark mode, including Live alerts.

Thank you! That helps the decision-making a lot.

Would you happen to know if this was ever taken care of for the original Redline?

It was never changed on RedLine.
