Default k band .. new car detector ?

Took a trip from NC to Niagara Falls this past week. I found out how many new cars are on the road with K band. Is my redline now useless ?

Why YES it is! Now I'll buy it from you for $100 I know how to use the buttons to make adjustments.
Tried almost all brands of detectors over the years, ESCORT won. Have owned original CM Escort w/mute, original Passport, Escort DSP (all time favorite, metal case, key, unreal range), Solo 5 battery pwr (I think), Passport 7500 (crap KA), Passport 8500 (better KA), Passport 8500 X50 (best KA), Passport X80 (not too bad), Escort IX (solidly built, really liked it but falsed a little too much) and currently a Max 360 BLE v 1.7

Surf through the forum here and you will see this has become a big problem for all detector company's. Newer Escort models have what is called IVT filtering which was designed to deal with this problem. Since the original Redline has none of this filtering it will drive you nuts on K band. All you can do is run auto with TSR on, might help some. If you can turn K band off that would be your only other option.
