Design

Escort doesn’t stray too much from its conventional designs, and the Redline 360C is still as sleek as ever. There’s nothing new in this department, but the display shows clear numbers and radar signal strength, your speed, and the direction of the threat.

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

Features

Trade-In Program

While this may not be a feature the radar detector itself provides, it’s a good deal that needs to be mentioned. You can always stay up-to-date with Escort radar detector technology by trading 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 fails.

This guarantee is only applicable to some models, like the Escort Redline 360C.

Price Match Guarantee

The Price Match Guarantee is another attractive feature. When the Redline 360C radar detector is purchased with Escort, they will offer the best price for their consumers. If  you found a product listed for a cheaper price online, Escort will match that price even within 30 days after purchase. 

Powerful Processor

With the Redline 360C, the processor is up to 25x more powerful than previous models. So, this radar detector can provide a rapid response time compared to other detector models in the market. You get alerts faster than other competitive radar detectors.

Range

The range of the Escort Redline 360C is top-notch, surpassing even that of the Redline Ex (which is 14 miles) and the Max 360C. Longer range means better detection so you’re guaranteed to drive slower than the speed limit. There won’t be any surprise speed traps. red light cameras, or hidden law enforcement in the bushes.

Aside from top-notch range, this detector also has directional arrows, something that’s used only by the best radar detectors like the Max 360C. With the arrows, you’ll be able to know where a signal is coming from every time.

Accuracy

The Artificial Intelligence-assisted filtering will limit the number of false alerts. You won’t need to be pestered by false alert notifications in the K band when you drive by garage doors or a microwave in someone’s kitchen. With smart filtering systems, you will know which signal or threat is legit.

Also with GPS, the accuracy of the Redline 360C radar detector is improved even more. GPS is a more advanced feature, and it’s not present in any detector in the market.

The artificial intelligence system can detect layers of K band, Ka band, X band, and laser bands, but unfortunately, other things operate on those bands as well (like automatic doors). This is when the advanced filtering and GPS come in to provide greater accuracy.

Stealth

One of the best features of the new Escort Redline 360C is the stealth capability. It makes your new radar detector undetectable by all RDDs (radar detector detectors). This is also one of the top factors that drive up the price of the Redline 360C.

This will let you avoid tickets in areas where detectors aren’t allowed, or if you simply don’t want the cops to know you have a detector in your car. Law enforcement is always trying to come out with new ways to bust those with radar detectors, but if you have the Redline 360C, you can continue driving with peace of mind.

360-Degree Protection

This Redline radar detector has full directional awareness. There are two frontal antennas and a rear antenna, so it doesn’t matter if threats are behind you, in front of you, or to the side. This is the best radar detector that can take on the job so you stay within the speed limit.

With location accuracy within 2.5 meters, you can imagine yourself being cocooned in a protective bubble. The Redline 360C actually has twice the radar detection range of the Max 360C, keeping you safe from law enforcement.

Auto-Learn Technology

The advanced auto-learn tech in the Redline 360C detector 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.

GPS integration 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 when you drive back to the same route. 

Aside from GPS, the Auto-mode feature is another thing that helps this detector in filtering out any false alert. With it, you can increase or reduce the sensitivity of the Redline 360C. So if you don’t like false notifications, you can minimize the detection of false alerts in town and increase the sensitivity when you’re on the highway.

Wi-Fi

More advanced and higher-end radar detectors can feature built-in Wi-Fi, and the Redline 360C 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. Along with the updates, it will also send new and real-time alerts to your phone if you have Escort Live.

Escort Live App Compatible

Speaking of the app, the Escort Redline 360C is compatible with Escort Live. You can download the app right to your phone and join the Escort community of drivers. With the app, you can get shared alerts and notifications in real-time.

Escort Live can also be used to share information with the community. When you come across a new red light or speed camera on the road, you can alert the community of that and save everyone the risk of an expensive ticket.

Smartphone Programmable

Since the Redline 360C also possesses Bluetooth, the radar detector syncs flawlessly with your phone. Just like with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth allows you to access the menu and settings from your phone for easy adjustments.

Accessories

Another great thing about the Escort Redline is it comes with everything you need. Inside the box, you will find a travel case, which is handy you need to take it with you on a trip, a USB charger and a windshield 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 another spot like your rearview.

Escort Redline 360C Review Conclusion

The Escort Redline 360C provides all the fancy bells and whistles that’s more than what you’re used to in a normal detector. It has two antennas in front and one at the rear, making it more effective in detecting every signal it can. It offers a wider detection range, adjustable sensitivity levels, artificial intelligence, directional arrows, Bluetooth, and K-Band false alert filtering systems that are more advanced compared to other models from the Escort line of radar detectors. 

Although its price tag is more expensive, the Redline 360C offers top-notch detection that can save you from speeding tickets in the years to come.
