Default Still poor range

Hi Larry,
I tried to send this to you via a PM, but it says I don't have access to PM's. so anyways, I've sent my Redline EX in 2 times now for the same issue, and it's still working like junk. Not sure what to do with this thing, it detects more Hondas that cops. I can see the cop's before the Redline EX can. So far I have spent $900CAD on this thing with the cost of the Redline EX it's self and the shipping back and forth for what seems like something your guys can't seem to fix. The feeling I get from the company with regards to the Redline EX it's it's the unwanted red headed step child of the radar detector world, and working half *** is deemed to be OK. With the price of these things, that's not OK. I have an original Redline, it just punishes this Redline EX, but the BSM filtering of the Redline or lack of, along with stealth and MRCD support is why I made my choice over the 360C MAX, which I constantly get lovely emails telling me to buy.
Here is another video showing how poor this thing works. Should I set up yet another appointment, to have it looked at in hopes it can be fixed for real?

The way that your EX was ramping sounded like reflections flying all over the place. You were obviously getting off axis reflections there, which means it wasn't that bad. The radar was facing away from you.....

Enabling MRCD or MRCT (Multaradar) is going to reduce IVT Filtering performance, so you will get more false alerts from cars with radar based technology. Unless you are in areas of Canada known to use mobile Multaradar then I suggest turning MRCD and MRCT off. The database will alert you to stationary cameras using Multaradar.
