Mute and AutoMute
Escort's patented AutoMute feature automatically reduces the alert volume after initially alerting you at your selected volume. This keeps you informed without the annoyance of a continuous full-volume alert. If you'd prefer, you can turn the AutoMute feature off.
Easy to Use
Enjoy control right at your fingertips using the included SmartPlug power cord. Patented Mute and AutoMute technology on the cord allows you to quickly silence alerts without reaching for the detector. Simple preference settings lets you customize up to 8 features.
Installation is also a breeze: use the quick release mount to attach it to your vehicle's windshield, and remove it in a snap. A durable zipper travel case is included to take the unit with you, or neatly conceal it in your vehicle.
Ultra-Bright Text Display
Don't miss a visual alert with the Redline's 280-LED alphanumeric display. With five levels of brightness viewable from any angle, it's easy to track and display multiple radar signals, including signal strength. The new SpecDisplay provides actual numeric radar frequency for any radar signal, and you can also view Safety Warning System (SWS) messages about upcoming hazards, construction and more.
Safety Warning System, or SWS, uses a modified K-band radar signal to alert users of Highway Construction or Maintenance, Highway Hazard Zone Advisories, Weather Related Hazards, Travel Information/Convenience, and Fast/Slow Moving Vehicles. The SWS safety radar system has 64 possible messages (60 currently allocated), all of which can be displayed on your C65.

Top customer reviews
After a solid two weeks of searching online, going between the Valentine One, MAX, Whistle, Beltronics, etc, looking through countless forums and recommendations, I finally settled upon the RedLine and so far, it's worth it. My old Cobra would give me a lot of false positives, mostly coming from cars with blind sensors and all(newer Audis are infamous for this), but my RedLine has yet to give me this issue. The feeling of the build itself feels nice and solid, my Cobra (although made out of cheaper stuff) survived a wreck from when I totaled my truck, so I'm sure this would survive an impact too.
I've uploaded some pictures, the first is the box that it came in and the next two show what was in the box that I received. (Make sure you register your radar detector on Escort's website.) The second to last was a good example on how sensitive the radar detector is, it would sense the radar from the cop car in front of me, and the last picture is close to our college campus here, and before you get to the red light, there's a bend, so people tend to try to beat the red light. The RedLine started to alert me before I made the bend, and then as you can see, there are 3 cop motorcycles, waiting for speeders and red light runners.
All in all, this is a solid, great product that gets the job done. Just hope your state doesn't carry lasers though, no radar detector can alert you before it's too late. I highly recommend the RedLine.
The reviews regarding the performance of the Redline and which detector is better have been done to death. For this review I’m going to focus on why I bought a radar detector and why you might want to buy one for your car. For me, having a radar detector is like acquiring a superpower. Superman has X-ray vison. With a radar detector, I have radar vision. Being able to see the unseen is an empowering feeling. It is like having a 6th sense for driving. I’m more aware and alert to the unseen waves which threaten to attack my driving points and my wallet.
Let me get one thing straight. I do not condone speeding. The speed limit laws were put in place for some very legitimate reasons, the primary reason being to make our streets safer. However, when police can and do write tickets for 100’s of dollars for a few MPH over the posted limit, the limits become more of a revenue producer than a safety issue. I was actually opposed to the increase of the freeway speed limit (within the city limits) to 65. When the speed limit is 65, most people push it to 70-75 which is too fast for the dense traffic on the freeways. On the other hand, there are some desolate stretches of highway in the southwestern desert where I think a person should be allowed to drive as fast as their car will go.
I prefer to watch the road when I’m driving and not the speedometer. Therefore, I want a radar detector to help prevent getting ticketed by sports car bias. Let me give you an example. You happen to be driving in a group of cars that are all going 10 MPH over the speed limit. You don’t feel like you are speeding because you are going with the flow. A cop clocks one of the cars in the group. He has the choice to pull over a minivan, a pickup truck, or a red sports car. Which one do you think he will pick? The detector should give an advanced warning to slow down and avoid the ticket.
Why did I choose the Redline over the competition? I did research my options. I knew I wanted a sensitive detector that had good range on those deserted stretches of highway. The increased sensitivity that the Redline offers is also beneficial for city driving where buildings and other vehicles can block signals. Yes, if you turn the Redline up to its most sensitive settings, it can be a bit chatty in the city, but you get used to it. The auto-mute feature helps keep the annoy factor to a minimum. You can also experiment with the settings to reduce false positives. Just keep in mind that you may squelch the Redline from a real threat by doing so.
I was not concerned about getting a detector with cell phone link capability (although the Redline has it). I have no desire to drive around with a cellphone mounted to my dash. One could easily get pulled over for fiddling with a cell phone if a cop suspects you are texting and the cellphone fines can be as bad as speeding violations.
The feature on the Redline that was the deciding factor for me when I learned about it is “SpecDisplay.” This mode will display the band and frequency being detected by the Redline. This is really helpful to rule out false positive alerts. Ka band police radar (one of the more popular bands for police) is found in certain frequency ranges. With SpecDisplay turned on, the Redline can display the frequency data (i.e. Ka 35.378) indicating which radar gun is likely being used. You can even segment the Ka band to only alert for specific ranges to increase performance, but you risk missing a Ka alert for a gun that happens to be transmitting on an unexpected frequency.
I’ve used Escort detectors in the past and had good results. Having a detector is not a failsafe method to prevent tickets. You still have to drive smart. Police are now using instant-on radar and laser guns which detectors are not the best at detecting. If the detector alerts for laser, the cop most likely got your speed, but it tells you to be careful because laser is being used. So far the Redline is performing well. In only 3 days of use it has already sniffed out a couple of legit police radar alerts. So if you would like to have a driving superpower, a radar detector can be your new trusty sidekick.
Just Drive the Speed Limit Dammit (Two Weeks Later)
This review rapidly accelerated from a 5 star review to a 2 star review. My Redline lasted all of two weeks before it broke. I first noticed that it was not false alarming at the usual spots. So I drove around and tried to make it alert by driving by drug stores, grocery stores, and a “Your Speed Is” trailer. What I learned was that it had completely stopped responding to K-band alerts and was only responding to X-band radar. If you know about radar, you know that an X-band only detector is essentially useless. I even attempted a factory defaults reset to no avail.
So it detects radar before any other competitor. That doesn’t impress me if it is not reliable. One thing that really bothers me about this failure was that I did not receive any warning from the detector that it was not operating properly. I even tried turning on the extended power up sequence to see if the detector would find a fault with itself and it didn’t have a clue. This does not instill a lot of confidence in the unit as a means to protect me from getting clocked by radar. The most sensitive detector in the world will do you no good if it transforms into an unresponsive brick of metal and plastic without warning. If this failure had occurred on the highway where there are few false alerts, I wouldn’t have known it unless I was pulled over for speeding.
I suppose I should mention that I was warned. I’m not the only person to have a Redline bite the dust. There are many reviews regarding the Redline and its unreliability on Amazon. However, I didn’t get any service required message like some users did.
I think this could be a great detector, but the engineers need to go back to the drawing board and address the reliability problem. Figure out a way to include an on-board diagnostic function to test the unit’s band detectors. For me it was a good thing that it was built so poorly it failed within my 30-day return window. I purchased it from awesome Amazon and I was able to get a full refund.
It had been awhile since I used a radar detector and I forgot how it is to drive with one. In theory they are a good idea, in practice, not so much. In the city you have to deal with a barrage of false alerts and train yourself to distinguish between the false alerts and the real alerts. The newer GPS units have been designed to fix this problem, but from what I understand, they have limitations that may result in locking out a true alert. I like to listen to music when I drive and the Redline is a lousy singer. They also make your car a prime target for a smash and grab if you leave a $500.00 detector mounted on the windshield. Constantly removing and replacing the detector every time you park is a pain in the lug nuts. Would I buy an Escort Redline detector again? No. Do I miss my superpower? Not really. Meet my new trusty sidekick. His name is Speedo Meter.
