ESCORT MAX 360c – Wi-Fi-enabled Radar Detector w/ 360° Detection

If you’re someone who spends a lot of your time driving around, one of the best gadgets that you can get for your car is none other than a radar detector. That’s simply because these handy little car gadgets can significantly improve any driver’s experience while on the road. Not only do radar detectors allow drivers to measure their car’s speed to then alert drivers whenever they’re driving over the speed limit, but they can also warn drivers about the presence of a nearby police patrol that’s set up just at the side of the road. Now, it’s worth pointing out that nowadays, police patrols do not only rely on just radar system anymore, as some of their speed traps now use lasers for the same purpose (detecting any passing by car’s that can potentially be driving over the speed limit). Nevertheless, just as radar detectors for consumers have gotten better at eliminating ADAS noise, so too have they started to detect these laser system used by the police. So, if you’ve been looking for a radar detector for your car, then look no further, as the ESCORT MAX 360c might very well be the best radar detector you’ll ever find.

The ESCORT MAX 360c is a high-end radar and laser detector that offers you long-range detection, false alert and IVT Filters, all while also featuring Bluetooth Connectivity and a built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity at 2.4 GHz  to keep drivers updated about any potential ticket threats in real-time.

To be a little more specific, the Escort’s complete driver alert system combines three car-safety technologies together, which include an Intelligent AutoLearn GPS-based Technology that’s used for automatically learning your route and rejects false alerts, an Intelligent Speed Sensitivity Technology that allows the system to automatically adjust its threat-detection sensitivity based on your vehicle’s speed, and a built-in IVT Filter that helps to reduces false alerts from you car’s In-Vehicle Technology.

With this feature-packed smart radar detector, you’re offered the perfect blend of car technologies to boost your car’s road awareness. All that ultimately gives you a full 360º protection against all potential ticket threats.

So, let’s have a more detailed look at this all-in-one Wi-Fi-enabled radar detector system and check out exactly how the ESCORT MAX 360c works, and also see everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & INTEGRATED FUNCTIONALITIES

Starting with the device’s size, this radar detector system comes at a fairly compact size, and features a very minimalist, yet ultra-modern design that allows the unit to easily blend in with your car’s dashboard. Additionally, the unit also features a fairly durable construction.

Moving on to its most notable functionalities. I’d like to start out by noting that this radar detector works based on Digital Signal Processing, which provides the MAX 360c’s system with best-in-class range and an immediate and lighting-fast response.

So, as its first smart functionality, know that this radar detector system comes equipped with Forward Facing and Rear Facing Antennas that help the system to pinpoint any potential threats around your entire vehicle, for which if any threats are detected, you then get 360° Directional Alerts via the ESCORT Live App (discussed later in further detail).

Now, as mentioned before, the system’s innovative AutoLearn Technology works by combining three different car-safety technologies together – Intelligent AutoLearn GPS-based Technology, an Intelligent Speed Sensitivity Technology, and a  a built-in IVT Filter.

As such, for its second functionality, we have its Intelligent AutoLearn GPS-based Technology, which is used together in synchrony with the device’s Smartphone Companion App (the ESCORT Live App) to have the system automatically learning your route and rejecting false ticket threat-detection alerts.

Then, for its third functionality, this Wi-Fi-enabled 360º Radar Detector also integrates a set of High-Precision Sensor that empowers the system with Intelligent Speed Sensitivity Technology, which allows the system to automatically adjust its threat-detection sensitivity based on your vehicle’s speed, thus helping to eliminate any potential false alerts while also maximizing the system’s threat-detection precision.

Moreover, the system also features a built-in IVT (In-Vehicle) Filter as its fourth technology, which automatically reduces false alerts from your car’s own In-Vehicle Technology like collision avoidance systems and adaptive cruise control.

Last but not least, as its final functionality, the system also integrates a patented False Alert Filtering functionality that automatically eliminates any unwanted noise.

INCLUDED ACCESSORIES & INSTALLATION

I’d also like to mention that for transporting and also installing the system above your vehicle’s dashboard, the MAX 360c also comes together with its very own set of accessories.

As such, the MAX 360c Radar Detector comes together with an included high-end EZ MAG Radar Mount which works based on Magnetic Mounting, thus allowing drivers to very easily and very quickly mount the radar just above their car’s dashboard.

Note that the system’s EZ MAG Radar Mount comes with its Adhesive Base protected by a thin protective film, which can easily be removed so that you can then snap the Radar Mount onto the inner-side of your vehicle’s windshield.

For attaching the system’s dedicated Radar Mount to the ESCORT MAX 360c, this can be done by simply connecting the mount’s Magnetic Pad to the device’s Magnetic Plate, which is found at the top-center side of the unit. On top of that, the system’s Radar Mount is also fully adjustable, so you can set it at whatever angle necessary.

Furthermore, the system’s dedicated 12V SmartCord USB PowerCord also comes equipped with an integrated AutoMute Button that allows drivers to quickly dismiss any potential false alerts.

Finally, we have an included sleek Travel & Storage Case that can be used to store and transport the device when not in use.

CONTROL PANEL & INTERFACE

Now, onto the unit’s Control Panel and Interface. Starting with the system’s built-in Controls, we only have a simple set of large Control Buttons that come integrated at the top-side of this radar detector, which, in all honesty, is a great thing to see, as it makes controlling the device a very intuitive process.

Now, for the unit’s actual Interface, we have a built-in Multi-Color OLED Display, which is what’s used by the system to keep drivers informed about any potential ticket threats that are detected ahead by the system’s 360º protection.

Around the device’s Multi-Color OLED Display, we have a set of On-Screen Alert Arrows that light up to indicate the direction of any detected ticket threat, thus intuitively informing drivers about any of potential ticket threats relative to their vehicle’s current position.

Those same On-Screen Directional Alert Arrows can also be color-coded according to the type of alert detected by the system. For example, you can have any detected X Band Radars (type of radar wave that falls between 8.0 GHz and 12 GHz) lighting up with a Green Color, K Band Radars (type of radar waves that fall between 18 GHz and 27 GHz) lighting up with a Blue Color, and any detected Laser Threats lighting up with a Red Color.

Finally, to complement the system’s AutoLearn GPS-based Technology, users can also the Mark Location button on the top of the unit to flag a location for alert, with 4 Labels to pick from: Red Light (for Red Light Cameras), Speed Camera, Speed Trap, and Other.

CONNECTIVITY

Now, for the system’s connectivity options, the ESCORT MAX 360c features Bluetooth Connectivity, which is exactly what allows the unit to establish a connection with its dedicated Smartphone Companion App (the ESCORT Live App) via your Smartphone, which is where you’ll be getting all of the system’s alerts with more detailed information (meaning other than the unit’s built-in Multi-Color OLED Display, that is).

On top of its Bluetooth Connectivity, it’s also worth mentioning that the ESCORT MAX 360c is actually the first radar and laser detector on the market that’s designed for the connected car, and as such, it also comes boasting built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity, which operates at 2.4 GHz.

Thanks to the integration of its on-board Wi-Fi connection, the MAX 360c can always update drivers about any detected ticket threats in real-time.

THE SMARTPHONE COMPANION APP – The ESCORT Live App

We’ll now talk a bit about the system’s dedicated Smartphone Companion App, called the ESCORT Live App, which you can find available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

The ESCORT Live app can complement your favorite Navigation Apps to provide you with an extra level of “driver awareness”.

So, via the ESCORT Live App, drivers are given access to the Defender Database, which is the largest and most up-to-date resource for alerting drivers about any potential speed cameras, traps, and red light cameras ahead of them on-the-road.

As such, by using the App, users can get real-time alerts, which are always getting generated from a community of over 3 million drivers. To be a little more specific, if you happen to be nearby a Marked Location (marked via the unit’s Mark Button), your own system will alert you about this potential ticket threat, whether that’s a Red Light Camera, a Speed Camera, or even a temporary Speed Trap (with any sort of Radars) mounted by the police.

In other words, these Radar and Laser Alerts that are all sent in real-time from this huge community of ESCORT members ultimately allow all other drivers using this system to detect any potential ticket threats some time before the police is able to detect them and their vehicle.

Moreover, since each user can mark a ticket-threat location by simply using the device’s Mark Button, the Defender Database also allows drivers to create hot spots and mark locations within the App, which are then automatically saved and memorized for conveniently re-using those same marked locations at any later stage, either by the driver who marked those spots, or by anyone else that’s using the App.

Last but not least, and as said earlier, the system’s AutoLearn GPS-based Technology is what’s used by the system for automatically learning your route and rejects false alerts, which you can then view in real-time via the App.
