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.

Radenseo Pro SE Review: Veil Guy Reviews the Radenso Pro SE Radar Detector
Is the Radenso Pro SE really the most sensitive windshield-mount radar detector yet?
By Veil Guy
It’s been nearly forty years since I have been driving with radar detectors and for the most of this time there have only been a handful of viable players in the U.S. and you’ve probably heard of all them. These manufacturers are Beltronics, Cobra, Escort, Valentine Research, and Whistler.

Introduction to the Whistler CR93 & Whistler CR88 Radar Detector
The publishing of this review has long been overdue as Whistler had provided me with an early production sample, back in June, of their up and coming release of the new Whistler CR93 and Whistler CR88 radar detectors. Both the Whistler CR93 and Whistler CR88 radar detectors replace their outgoing Whistler CR90 and Whistler CR85 detectors.

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.

Best Laser Detector: Valentine 1
Introduction to Laser Detectors
If you recently received a speeding ticket and the officer who pulled you over told you that he used police laser on you or you read your speeding ticket and you saw the word “lidar”, you are probably wondering how exactly he determined your speed and if there was a way in preventing another speeding ticket in the future. And you wouldn’t be alone.

Beltronics GT-7 Review
When Ron Gividen of Beltronics recently sat down with me to give my readers an exclusive first look of the new Beltronics GT-7 radar detector, I was thrilled. Thrilled, because I’ve been a huge fan of the Beltronics brand of radar detectors over the years. Thrilled, because Beltronics was finally getting some long-overdue and much needed attention.
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.
