Default Redline EX not working in Hong Kong

Hi, I had recently bought a Redline EX in Hong Kong. My vehicle is a 2016 Tesla Model S 90D.

Unfortunately, the unit doesn't work properly, Very Late Signal, i.e. 10 meters Passed the MDCR Radar located on the hard shoulder.

A Video Clip uploaded to youtube for references.

Thanks in advance.

I agree. It appears to be an original Redline.

Sorry, some mistake happened......I had uploaded the video with Redline

My EX was sent into the distributor for "inspection", the distributor borrow the claimed "normal" old version of Redline to see whether the same issue, i.e. Late Warning, No Warning, or Warning only passed the Radar.

However, it remain the same after a week testing along all environment in Hong Kong, Highway's Fix Radar Camera, Mobile Radar. So far only Laser Warning was accurate

Tesla automobiles have metallic coated radiation absorbing windshields. Unless you can find an area on the windshield that is clear of this coating, you will not be able to use any windshield mounted radar detector in it and receive ample warning to radar.

Well, it's become strange that while I use the EX before send-in to Neltronics for inspection, the EX have a good GPS reception, as the GPS Signal resume once I exit a tunnel, however, not the case for other devices which need GPS Signal, i.e. Dashcam.

Laser reception is Good, but for Radar, always have very late response.

You need to get a remote detector for that vehcile. Get the Max360ci or Maxci.
