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.

It’s hard to believe that’s it’s been eight years since the Passport 9500ix first announced, but looking back at one of my earlier posts, it is indeed nearly eight years to the day.  Man, does time fly!

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.

Introduction to Laser Detectors

Beltronics GT-7 Review

Introduction

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.

The ultimate expression of a legendary radar detector

Updated: 12/2/15

New products, of late, have been coming fast and furious from both Escort (and its sister company Beltronics).

To maintain their respective product line-up’s “freshness,” some of their stalwart products have been getting a make-over, such as the Beltronics STi Driver whose recent replacement is the freshened Beltronics STi Magnum.
