Best Radar Detector Reviews of 2022
Despite COVID-19 and the subsequent lock-down of our economy, the best radar detector manufacturers continue to crank out, ever better radar detectors. Just in the first six months, drivers have been presented with new appetizing radar detectors.
As this pandemic rolls into 2022, I suspect many people will opt to travel by car than airplane and after a long lull, police appear to be issuing tickets to speeders with greater frequency, perhaps to make up for short-falls in municipal budgets over the last several years.

Escort Max 360c Introduction
It’s been only a couple of short days since I first wrote about Escort Max 360c radar detector, the first ever to incorporate WIFI. But since that time, I have been able to accumulate some time behind the wheel with the new Max 360, enough so that I feel comfortable in sharing some of my early impressions, which have generally been quite favorable.

Escort comes up with the first cloud connected radar detector.

Introduction (the C means connected)
Escort is showing to have a habit of doing things, in time, that they say they are not going to do.
A recent example of that was the release of the new stealth radar detector the Escort Redline EX, a replacement to their outgoing Escort Redline. In the case of the EX, Escort maintained that producing an M3-based radar detector with the capabilities of GPS (like the Escort Max series of detectors) was not feasible and would be too large to be practical. Fast forward a couple of years and the engineering team did just that. The sheer size champ goes to the dual antenna Escort Max 360 radar detector, but up until now, it was the Escort Redline EX that took the weight crown.

Introduction to the Escort ZR5 & Escort ShifterMax Add-on Pack
For a number of years, the preferred laser jammer of many enthusiasts has been the ALP system, which has been regarded as the most effective against the Dragon Eye Variable Pulse Rate (VPR) lasers, being able to thwart the most versions of the DE guns. While their circulation is quite limited relative to the more established lidar gun manufacturers, such as Kustom, LTI, Stalker, the potential benefits of this advanced capability has put the ALP on top for many.

The Escort Redline finally gets a significant makeover

Escort Redline EX Prototypes (formerly Redline 2)
Fans of the Escort Redline have a new treat, the new Escort Redline EX (formerly called the Escort Redline 2)
For the last several years, the Escort brand has seen some pretty significant changes at the helm at the hands of its new owner. As can be the case, things at times may seem “chaotic” or in flux, but eventually from “chaos” can come order. With Escort–at least from an engineering stand-point–it appears that the brand remains under good stewardship with a continued focus on product innovation, even if those changes are not coming as forthright as some of us would prefer.

Say hello to Escort’s new top dogs.
After literally years of asking by the radar detector enthusiast community, Escort is finally updating the Escort Passport 9500ci remote installed radar detector platform with what will be their new halo products called the Escort Max Ci 360 and Escort Max Ci. You know the old adage, a rolling stone gathers no moss and that expression is most apt for Escort Radar and its parent company Cedar Electronics.

Introduction to Escort iX Radar Detector
Shortly after the I published my Escort iX preview, I learned Escort was sending me an Escort iX for their first formal public review. I appreciate their faith in my unique understanding of how Escort radar detectors have performed over the nearly 40 years I’ve been driving with them.

Veil Guy’s In-depth Escort Max 360 Review
Introduction to the Escort Max 360 Radar Detector
I was very pleased when I initially penned my Escort Max 360 radar detector preview, but was thoroughly ecstatic when Escort sent me a production for my formal Escort Max 360 review.
Long in the making, Escort has finally given us a radar detector with the capability of threat-source identification (ie; directional arrows). Often discounted by some retailers (who couldn’t sell the V1) as an unnecessary feature, the driving cognoscenti knew better.
MUST SEE: Escort Max 360 Versus Multiple Ka Threats
After this introduction, we set out to find a complex operating speed trap to see if the new Escort Max 360 radar detector had the chops to deal with it and we got lucky finding one.
I’m very pleased to say, we weren’t disappointed with the performance of the Escort Max 360.
Check it out!
While it’s still very early, I think the time is soon coming (if it’s not already here) that the sheer performance potential of Escort’s new M6 dual front and rear facing antenna platform–that the Escort Max 360 uses–is going exceed that of the platforms that have preceded it.
