Escort - Radar Detector - Black

High-Efficiency Battery Design

SOLO S3 uses only a fraction of the power used by conventional corded detectors. Using 2 standard (AA) batteries (included), the SOLO S3 provides months of normal driving protection. A new low-battery warning circuit keeps constant watch on the condition of the batteries, and provides you with both audible and visual alerts before they need to be replaced. A new AutoPower feature (programmable) automatically turns the SOLO S3 off to conserve battery life.

Long-Range Radar Protection

The redesigned SOLO S3 provides long-range warning on all radar bands including conventional and "instant-on" X-band, K-band, and Superwide Ka-band. Patented Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides the longest warning possible without constant false alarms.

The radar detector works as expected.4 Posted by: from: on No surprises with this detector other than the battery lasting longer than expected. The cordless function with the sun visor mount accessory make the unit seamless and appears to work fine. Although I have had a few alerts with no police in sight, I have not been pulled over yet. I did forget to power up on one trip and the guy in front of me was caught on laser, which provided a kind reminder to power up each trip. Overall a great buy for the price.

Great radar detector that works without wires.5 Posted by: from: on I bought this detector based on my previous experience with Passport. This model will work on batteries which makes for a trivial installation. Just attach the suction cup mount to the windshield and mount the detector. The unit will automatically shut off after 20 minutes of the vehicle not moving. For a long trip you can plug in the unit to a cigarette lighter outlet, although I think that the battery would last for at least 8 hours.

Definitely would recommend5 Posted by: from: on This radar has saved me a couple times. It is able to detect police with radar guns pretty early. The thing that sold me on this radar detector the most was that it was wireless. I hate dealing with wires. I am able to get the best of both worlds and I love this device.

Works Great No Cord4 Posted by: from: on Seems to work just as well as my 9500. When you use this radar without power cord at times you don't remember if it's on.

Portability + Affordability = Detectability5 Posted by: from: NJ on 2 XCOUNTRY TRIPS USNIG THE S3 After two 3000 mile cross country trips using this detector I can without any hesitation recommend this radar detector. No bells and whistles here just straight up "cordless" radar detection with really good battery life. With between 40-50 hours on a set of regular Duracells I have more than half-life left on them. The portability of the S3 is great.

Accurate, but too accurate!3 Posted by: from: Acworth, GA on The unit picks up lots of motion detectors in front of stores and goes off too frequently. It gets annoying after a while. On the highway it works better as designed.

Excellent battery operated detector4 Posted by: from: on Installed in an Audi A3, which is not power cord friendly. No complaints on the detector's ability to sense radar. Easy to setup and configure. Getting about 30 - 45 days per set of batteries. Only complaint: No auto on. This detector can sense a lack of movement and turn itself off. It should also detect movement and turn itself on. While I understand this would potentially shorten battery life, it would be an excellent feature.

Cordless4 Posted by: from: on Love the cordless! The batteries last me about a month. Has detected very well. Not familiar with the KA and K so can not tell you how well the detection has been for each signal, but can say it has saved me a couple of times.
