Default Escort RedLine EX NA VS Intl

Hey,
I'm staying at the US for couple of weeks, thinking on buying the ex,
i'm living in Europe,
will it work same at the international version?
any settings need to be changed? can it be programmed to work as the intl version?

NA versions are missing bands for detectors used in Europe. I don't recommend buying the NA version for use in Europe.

The default settings and access to the international databases are the differences. This requires different hardware. Detection-wise they are the same.
Please allow me to share my experience using the NA version of the Redline EX while stationed at SHAPE Belgium. I bought it here in the USA and then used it all over Europe, after some adjustments...

BLUF: It works great over there, just as Larry writes above: "Detection-wise they are the same".

I confirm it works in europe. I bought it in the USA and then used it all over Greece and Italy (before Covid19).
