I think for me that the KA sensitivity is the same but Iíll have to do some more testing to be sure on this.

But the areas Iím liking that. The flip is much more gradual smooth.


More to come.

I tell you what, this being my first connected car experience with the WiFi really pays for itself as a must have feature. I left my office to head home for lunch, and I noted that my detector alerted me to an update... I didn't pay close attention and just hit "Y" thinking that maybe the DB update didn't take from the weekly release yesterday.

My wife and I went out to dinner tonight, and while I was driving, noted a few Ka PD units that passed me from the opposite direction, and was VERY pleased at the distance I was getting from front and behind. For testing, some of you may recall I'm still running my MAX360 (also with the new FW update from a few days ago) in the back window of my Volvo. I decided against another RL360c for the wife's car, and she's using my RLEX for now.

The RL360c was often surpassing the front / rear detection's (90%) against the rear mounted MAX360 to begin with. Just tonight, I even noted the arrows seemed to be VERY in-tune as the source passed my location on two separate occasions.

Little did I realize that the darn thing updated itself today and I was treated to some early testing, after reading the thread tonight that a FW was released, and as promised by John in the video from a few weeks ago. I could appreciate what seemed to me to be an improvement in range, without being aware of the new FW.

Now if they can just send me another FW update for my year old FW on the RLEX... :-)

Interesting. Looks like I need to do some controlled testing here to determine if the range is in fact improved. I will also hit it with some instant on shots to see where we are there as well. I am really excited about Escorts work. They are delivering like crazy lately! Great! Thank you Escort!

Yes. I did a test like this a few days ago. I believe in terms of real world encounters no one should have any issues with the R360 .

Could it be faster? Yes I think it can and should considering what it is capable of. ANd Escort is on it!!

But what I am saying is , in the meantime theres not going to be anything to really be concerned about. It is just going to make it that much better.

Personal preference. Some may like it; I tried and find Spec2 more useful

So far my RL 360c with firmware 1.4 the arrows are more responsive now. This is very important feature that has to work correctly. Good job Escort. Just test it before you release it next time. This is what I want my wife to use, all she has to do is power it up and drive.

I now done a couple of 9 hr road trips with the R360; one with v1.3 and today with v1.4. Plus had a little more time with v1.4 on local trips.
I'm really liking the improvements in 1.4. Its quieter and filtering, ramp up and arrow transition seems much improved. So, 1.4 seems really a solid improvement. I can't comment on range differences between 1.3 and 1.4, but I feel more confident in the alerts ....especially Ka, with the improved 1.4 filtering.

I do have a question on K alerts. I'm still getting the Honda BSM hits; less with 1.4, but during my 9 hour drive today, I counted 15 K alerts, that I would associate with Honda BSM's.

I know this is really tough to totally eliminate, but with K notch on, I like to get other Redline users thoughts. Thanks?

Mine has been very effective against BSM. I have had more K band lately but each one has been ultimately identified as a legit patrol car. I do think I am picking up K further away.
