Best Radar Detector Review Introduction

Radar detectors have evolved more in the last several years than they did for the last several decades.  For much of this time there were effectively only two means of measured traffic enforcement in use, police radar and police laser.  In terms of police radar, there have been three radar bands to measure speed: X-band, K-band, Ka-band.  With police laser, it’s been infrared light at a wavelength of 904nm.  Since these remained the primary methods of measuring speed, radar detectors didn’t need much changing or updating.

Best Radar Detectors of 2019

Read our updated radar detector review of the best radar detectors of 2020.

Radar detectors continue facing more difficult challenges on the road in 2019. The best radar detector used to be considered to be one that was the most sensitive and alerted to police radar from the farthest distance but this hasn’t been the case for some time now.  The best radar detectors today offer plenty of radar detection and alerting range and selecting one solely on the basis of range and sensitivity to police radar is not something that I would recommend as there are other aspects of performance that matter equally much of which will be mentioned below.

Introduction

Radar detectors have been around a long time, nearly 40 years, and for much of that time the best radar detector was considered to be one that was the most sensitive and alerted to police radar from the farthest distance. A lot has changed in both the best radar detectors and traffic enforcement industries and today as we approach Christmas of 2018, the RF landscape continues to deteriorate, becoming even more challenging for a radar detector to function well. Now more than ever, the best radar detectors have to successfully balance two opposing dynamics: filtering (signal rejection) and sensitivity.

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.

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.

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.

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.
