The display can exhibit a few colors (red, amber, blue, and green) and all the settings on the Escort Redline 360C are easily customizable.

Features

Trade-In Program

While this may not be a feature the radar detector itself provides, it’s a good deal that we feel needs to be mentioned. You can always stay up-to-date with Escort radar detector technology. Trade-in your old models for the new Escort Redline 360C.

This is a wonderful service because not many of us know what to do with old technology [1]. Not only will Escort take care of your older model, but they can also buy you out or give you credit towards your next purchase.

Speeding Ticket Guarantee

Escort has so much confidence in their products that they offer a ticket guarantee. This means that they will pay for your laser or radar speeding ticket if their product ever fails you!

This guarantee is only applicable to some models, and the Escort Redline 360C is one of them.

Price Match Guarantee

When purchased with Escort, they vow to offer the cheapest prices for their consumers. If at any point you are able to find a product listed for cheaper online, Escort will make the commitment to match that price even within 30 days after purchase!

Powerful Processor

With the Escort Redline 360C, the processor is up to 25x more powerful than previous models. This means that this radar detector can provide rapid response times not offered to you before. You get more alerts faster than other competitive radar detectors.

Range

The range of the Escort Redline 360C surpasses even that of the Redline Ex (which is 14 miles). Longer range means better detection and there won’t be any surprise speed traps and red light cameras or hidden law enforcement in the bushes.

Accuracy

The AI-assisted filtering will limit the number of false alerts even more than before. You won’t need to be pestered by notifications when you drive by garage doors or even a microwave in someone’s kitchen. You will know exactly what is a credible threat and what isn’t.

Also with the help of GPS, the accuracy is improved even more.

It can detect layers of K, Ka, X, and laser bands, but unfortunately, other things operate on those bands as well (such as automatic doors). This is when the advanced filtering and GPS come in to provide you with greater accuracy.

Stealth

One of the best features of the new Escort Redline 360C is the stealth capability. It’s so advanced that your new radar detector is undetectable and invisible to all RDDs (radar detector detectors). 

This will let you avoid tickets without getting a ticket. Law enforcement is always trying to come out with new ways to bust those with radar detectors, but if you have the Escort Redline 360C, you can drive with peace of mind.

360-Degree Protection

The radar detector has full directional awareness. It doesn’t matter if hidden speed traps and law enforcement are behind you, in front of you or to the side, your radar detector will find them.

With location accuracy within 2.5 meters, you can imagine yourself being cocooned in a protective bubble, safe from law enforcement.

Auto-Learn Technology

The advanced auto-learn tech incorporates GPS and learns the routes you take. It will also store all the false alerts into memory and all the legitimate speed traps and cameras to notify you the next time you cross this path.

This works well because it eliminates any notifications about pre-existing speed traps that you have previously detected and gives you a smoother and quieter ride.

Wi-Fi

More advanced and higher-end radar detectors can feature built-in Wi-Fi, and this is one of them! Having Wi-Fi 24/7 will allow you to share and access information with your fellow Escort radar detector users.

It can even alert you about software updates to make sure you are always ahead of the game and using the latest technology. It will also send real-time alerts to your phone if you have the compatible app.

Escort Live App Compatible

Speaking of the app, the Escort Redline 360C is compatible with the Escort Live app. Download the app right to your phone and join the Escort community of drivers. Get shared alerts and notifications in real-time.

You can also offer information by sharing it with the community. When you come across a new red light or speed camera, you can alert the community of the new speed trap and save everyone the risk of a ticket.

Smartphone Programmable

Since it also possesses Bluetooth, the radar detector syncs flawlessly with your phone. Just like with Wi-Fi, you can access the menu and settings from your phone for easy adjustments.

Accessories

Another great thing about the Escort Redline is the fact that it comes with everything you need. Inside the box, you will find a travel case, just in case you need to take it with you on a trip, a USB charger and a mount.

The mount is a suction mount so it can go easily and securely on your windshield. If that placement is illegal in your part of the country, then you can attach it to your rearview.

Escort Redline 360C Review Conclusion

The Escort Redline 360C provides all the fancy bells and whistles that you are used to and more. It’s faster, more accurate, undetectable, more efficient, and more advanced than other models from the Escort line of radar detectors.
