It is not hype that the Escort is one of the most powerful radar detectors in the present times. There are several reasons to prove this claim:

  • Filters False alerts: While all radar detectors do filter false alerts eventually, the Escort is the most effective in doing that. We are surrounded by radar waves and it becomes essential that your device distinguish between the speed traps and false alarms.
  • Directional Alerts: The alert tells you the exact direction of the radar whether it is front back or left or right side. The color of the arrow also tells the kind of radar that was detected. This spatial awareness allows you to adjust your speed and drive accordingly.
  • OLED Display: The color display makes reading the information easy irrespective of the lighting condition.
  • Defender database: The database warns the driver of thousands of red light and speed camera locations in North America thereby having a huge advantage with respect to other detectors which rely only on the device’s range.

The not so appealing factors in the Escort Max 360

The device has several positive features which make it a must buy for those who love to drive fast. But the few negatives that you can’t ignore in the Escort max 360 radar detector are:

  • Compulsory subscription to escort live app: To enjoy the 360 degree protection claimed by the device you must pair your device with your Smartphone and download the Escort Live app. The app is free but the defender database comes with a hefty subscription.
  • Slow reacting arrows: The direction arrows react slowly when the position of the radar changes thereby failing to provide accurate and timely information.
  • Not compatible with Hondas and Acuras: If you own a Honda or a Acura that have the blind spot monitoring wrecks havoc with the radar detecting ability of the Max 360 is practically unusable.
