I have spent the last 3 years running an Escort Smartradar Android with Escort Live (EL) and things were good. Last year I lost the Bluetooth connection to EL. No problem, I just ran EL and manually reported police encounters. Then last month I found the GPS sync was erratic and I decided to research replacement options. While researching I found that Escort had released app EL Android 2.1.6 and rushed EL Android 2.1.7 out this past week.
I decided I would like to have the Escort Max 360; however I have a real problem paying almost $700 for an inferior radar detector to the Escort RedLine in performance since it is not RDD stealth. Are you listening Cincinnati Microwave?
Just my luck Big Box BB decided to liquidate their Escort Max2 inventory with a 30% mark down to $429 and Amazon price matched the mark down. BB does not like my credit ratio or something even with a FICO of 830, so instead of 12 month same as cash I took Amazon Store card 6 months and Prime delivery.
Ok, yesterday the Escort Max2 arrives in the mail on time. I pull it out and sync with EL. I cleared all the filters and just have X, K , Ka & Laser checked. I take off on a 25 mile roundtrip to a friend’s home for dinner. As I exit the neighborhood I am hit with a K band signal that continues to ramp up for 6 blocks before I pass the unmarked unit rolling towards me. First save of over a mile on K band. Next I pass the CVS & WG doors the Escort Smartradar Android with Escort Live (EL) still reported even after a multitude of passes over the past 3 years. Past the Airport and another CVS. Returned vis a diferent route with one more K band false from the Escort Smartradar Android with Escort Live (EL) in the past.
Here it is folks, out of the box and all filters removed the Escort Max2 had 1 legitimate K Band alert of over a mile and ZERO false alerts and I did nothing. I am running this just like the Escort Smartradar which would have caught the K band alert and at least 8 false alerts in the 25 mile trip.
Escort Max2 is my new Co-Pilot!
Trip from Indianapolis to Louisville; only two alerts for Your Speed Signs in 124 miles of travel on I-65. The Escort Passport Max2 is worth the money just in the number of eliminated false alerts let alone the saves.
This detector looks nice, and ease to hang.
FALSE K ALERTS!!! everytime im on the highway my detector went off every 2 minutes for K alert. It would only go as high as 1-3 bars but then go off, It was just on long enough and then off again that if I muted it, It would ring again. It got very annoying. I updated the radar to the latest version on my PC and tried all the other "solutions" found on the internet and nothing worked. The ONLY way to stop the false K alerts was to turn off K, which, what if a cop is actually using K then im screwed. MY 8500 NEVER DID THIS. So many complaint of this and I am not sure how they can continue to sell this product
The next thing is, this radar get its stats from the mobile APP, this mobile app is very buggy. Every time you get in the car you have to start the app because it logged you off, every time it says "request timed out" I am pretty sure this is due from going from 4G to wifi in my house. So many apps funciton fine from going 4G to wifi vice versa. So everytime I go into my car i have to start the app for it to send data to the radar. Some times it couldnt find my radar, I would have to unplug my radar and back in. Then one weekend, I couldnt log in at all.
Overall this supposed "technological advanced" radar, is just so buggy and behind on updates. I dont know how this product can be sold when it is not even usable.
The magnet suction cup works well to hold it to the window, but because the detector sides into a magnetic pin it's held secure but it continually wobble when driving. But for me this inconvenience, is offset by how quick and easy it is to take on and off to hide or take with me when I'm not parked in the best of areas.
For example I'm in California and on the freeways in major areas the cops rarely run radar as they typically pace which in this case it will provide zero protection.
But say I'm driving on a more isolated freeway like going to Vegas, then this definitely helps as the cops tend to hide and run radar or laser, it does detect the laser, but laser is instant so by the time it alerts, it's basically telling you your getting a ticket.
For me for my daily use, I tend to find it works well on City streets that are on my normal commute as the auto false detector blocks out stuff like the signs that read the speed, malls or grocery that have auto doors as those run off radar. It has save me a few times already from hiding motorcycle cops running radar.
The app is ok, I mainly use it for blocking my false alerts, as far as the alerts from other drivers I haven't had any good info from this so I won't be renewing the subscription after my free year.
No update cable, miserable audio levels, lack of simple alert functionality in the app, I'm sure it's a great radar detector, but Waze seems to be a far superior ticket avoidance option given the prices and functionality, or lack thereof.
The radar detector seems to work okay, however, I'm taking 2 stars for not including the proper update cable with the peripheral. At $300+ I expect your device to come with everything I need packaged inside of the case. Skimping me on a $0.50 antiquated data cable is absolute nonsense. When this device is obsolete I will not replacing it with another escort product.
