    Range just isn’t there

    I purchase this radar detector along with the Uniden R7 because they’re the best of the best based on all the reviews. I was torn between the two but leaning strongly towards the Escort Max 360c because I’m a fan. I’ve been using the redline for several years and I’ve come to trust the performance and the brand. Getting ready for a road trip to put the escort and R7 through their paces I updated both device to their latest firmware and set them up to mirror each other with setting options. Settings- TSR-Off, K-Narrow, KA 2,4,5,6,8 seg, k-block enabled on Uniden. I started out a 6 hours family vacation trip with the Escort which was very quiet, I alerted to a couple of k-flashes in the city but began to feel uneasy when I passed up two separate traffic stops with no alert to KA band, both stops were within 1/8 mile distance give or take. About 300 miles into my trip a SO unit and I were in passing on a two lane road, my detector finally let out a KA alert when I was within 1/8 mile (killzone). Thankfully I was doing the speed limit but needless to say I pulled that detector off my windshield and installed the Uniden R7. To keep it light the Uniden R7 did what it was born to do, I got my first KA alert immediately after pulling onto the HWY, the source was an unmarked car that had to be at least a mile away. I passed up a couple more unfortunate folks who were pulled over, this time getting KA alerts at least I mile before I even saw the traffic stop. The R7 also did great with BSM rejection and K-Falses. I maybe had one or two false alerts while driving through small towns. I hope this helps, perhaps a got a bad unit but this is just my experience with escorts latest and greatest. I definitely liked the look and feel of the Escort, it has a very premium feel to it. Whereas the R7 is lighter and plastic like, if that makes sense. I like escorts app for the detector but waze will also work. I also like where escort is going with the “connected” Soulutions. However, I don’t like it at the expense of performance.

    Excellent Radar!

    This Escort Max360c has paid for itself in just under a month. I have a CDL and have a tendency to have a heavy foot when not in my rig. I’m an overly cautious driver but when I’m in my personal vehicle I have a tendency of not paying attention to my speed. I have the ability to set an over speed protection that will alert me of my violation, which was a money saver a quite a few times already. When I’m in Bluetooth mode it shows me current speed limits and the speed of the vehicle. Knowing my speed and speed limits is great but the distance this radar detects is amazing, it gives you more than enough time to make your adjustments. The detection distances are adjustable from city to highways Incase your in a crowded environment. It’s a bit complicated at first on how to use/set/adjust the settings but after a bit of reading and a few YouTube videos I’m very confident on managing my Max360c. Overall it’s amazing! I wish I would’ve bought one sooner but I bought one now and it has helped me tons. The price is a bit on the higher side but just consider the cost of a moving violation or two!!!

    Excellent Mounting System, cheesy plastic case.

    I was considering the Uniden R3 and the Escort 360c. The 360c is mostly a hands-free device that’s mostly automatic in terms of sensitivity when driving and automatically tuning out false alarms, etc. I want the radar to be situationally aware (I’ve NEVER had a speeding ticket). I don’t intentionally speed for thrills and I’m no nascar driver. I understand the R3 is known to be the most sensitive radar unit on the market at the moment (A huge pro for excessive speeders I’m assuming), but it also seems to demand a bit more of your attention to mute out false alerts, etc. I just want to set the device and forget about it and the 360c does that fairly well. The $399 price tag was also considerably better on the R3 over the 360c (paid about $580 on sale). However, the Escorts WIFI allowing for auto-updates is convenient. The real deal breaker, THE MOUNTING SYSTEM ! ! ! The Escort mounting system is magnetic. I don’t leave the detector hooked up when parked in public, so it’s nice being able to have a more seamless experience mounting and unmounting the device. Another bonus is the directional arrows directing your attention to the radar location. Four stars because my unit came with a scratch and the plastic body feels cheap (build quality) for the money this detector costs.

    Is the Price Worth it....

    Big question and yes! 100% I used to have cheaper $50-$150 detectors that worked fine. yet nothing compares to this one. I actually was nervous when I bought it because KA band would pop up and have a direction arrow forward.....nothing in sight. Slowly but surely, 45 seconds later the cop passes. Sometimes even longer....that’s a long advance notice! Also love the GPS Auto Learn - you don’t need WiFi in your car to use it and it avoids/mutes a rite aid alarm you pass by into work after a few days. My only complaint is the community alert is both great and bad....DO NOT HIT THE MARKER BUTTON ON THE DETECTOR UNTIL YOU UNDERSTAND ITS USE. You can confirm/not there other escort radar users alerts when you get close. Best overall for database updates and actual detection. I also purchased the direct wire so the cord isn’t dangling and I highly recommend that for a clean set up

    Best Radar Detector On The Market!

    I have owned multiple radar detectors but once I found Escort I have and never will go back (including Valentine). I upgraded from a 9500 ix to the MAX 360 and loved it. But once I got a new BMW with WiFi I upgraded to the Max 360c. I love it!!!! It updates frequently and automatically and shows the speed limit as well as other Escort user warnings without having to connect to your phone. The design both functionally and aesthetically is outstanding. I have driven over 700 miles a week for 5 years and thanks to my Escort radar detectors have not gotten a ticket. I truly believe they have actually made me a safer driver as they warn me when I am over the speed limit and each time it goes off I check my speed and if I am over the limit I slow down. This warns you of speed traps, traffic cams and so much more. If you do much commuting at all it is well worth the price!

    I bought this in Coral Springs, FL when I was driving back to Lexington, KY. This Radar alerted me way before I even saw the police. I did however have maybe 4-5 false alarms but with the amount of miles I would call that excellent. There is a mobile app that you can use with this radar thats kinda like Waze. You add where you see a cop or speed trap or even a speed light. So you have the protection of the device plus the added support of other drivers. Its a really nice combo together but the only down side is that theres no battery. You must use the cord at all times and if the app doesn't detect you moving after 10mins you have to open the app again (so it say, but when I just drove it came back up on its own).

    Good detector. I like the directional indicators

    I used to have the 9500ix and had it for 9 years but the plug went out the day before I went on a road trip. I could have just bought another plug but it wouldn't have arrived in time for my trip so I bought the MAX 360 because it has most of the same things that the 9500ix had. The one thing I didn't like was having to go in and change most of the settings so that the alarm wasn't going off every time I went 5 miles over the speed limit, or said speed limit. I do like the directional indicators because it gives you an idea if you are being followed by a cop or one coming straight at you.

    I have only had it for a few weeks now, but it gives plenty of warning so far. As with any radar detector you still have to watch the other cars in the traffic because if they are triggering it you still have no warning until the radar is triggered. Don't get as many false alerts as with older units I have had. I like the ability to update as new technology comes out instead of buying a new one. I feel it will be well worth the about $50/3 years it will cost (much cheaper than a new one). Of coarse I will know more as time goes on, but now I am well pleased with it.

    fails to manufacture the frame on the glass

    the radar does what is expected is quite accurate and helpful with arrows. the stickycup has a fault in its manufacture if you leave the radar placed in a week the plastic that supports the weight of the radar and the frame is broken and two radars returned ppr because of that the radar falls to the ground of the car. escort offers to send a new mount for free but the same will happen again to a defect

    Lots of nice features snd can be set up for the type of driving I am doing. It always lets me know if a radar trap is up ahead. And it is directional so that I know if the radar is up ahead of me or behind me. It gives me plenty of time to slow down. The only drawback is that lasers are used with the pull of a triger and are tight band so I dont know about them until they hit me but I slow down quickly and so far havent gotten a ticket. It saves me money and I can watch the drivers around me and not having to worry about what might be hiding behind every bush.

    Super impressed with this one. So much quieter than the Uniden R3 or the previous 360 I own for wife's car. Haven't gotten to test against lidar threats. Does a great job around Atlanta where most just never shut up. Uniden would go off Everytime you got near an Acura. Expensive but with others you get soany falses you begin to tune out alerts. I drive 250 miles a day in metro Atlanta and travel out of state almost every weekend. Highly recommend.

    Upgraded to this detector from the Escort X80 largely due to having the arrows on the front of the unit. Unit works well and the upgraded magnetic mount is a big improvement. Initially thought having the matching Escort mobile App and database was not useful but it did alert me to a speed trap that was indeed active. If you are considering this unit I also recommend the Uniden R7 but it was not available at the time I purchased this unit.

    I bought this radar detector the passport 360 just before going on several long trips. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with this unit. In just a few months it has saved me from countless speeding tickets! It will reach out 2 to 3 miles and in all directions. It will warn you of the red light cameras and with the app on it monitors your speed and networks with other users for marking where radar is.

    Escort Max 360C

    Was unsure how this radar would compare to the Escort Red Line that it was replacing. Ran them in tandem on a recent road trip and found that it's range was superior to my old (2010) Red Line. So many different functions on this detector it'll take sometime to learn them all. So, far I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it.

    I purchased this because my daughter recommended this particular item and I have to say it’s very helpful! It will let you know when you’re over speeding or when there a speed trap as well. It picks up officers within miles of you and it tells you where they are at as well. This is a great investment!

    Much quieter than my 9500ix

    This replaced my old 9500ix that started beeping all the time when going by cars with the lane detection feature. I am still not sure how it will be once the subscription runs out on for the updates. Connection to the app on the iPhone seems OKish seems like the WAZE DB is more updated when it comes to speed limits.

    I upgraded from the Escort MAX and already see a difference in performance. My only complaint is wi-fi connectivity on my phones hotspot is non existent, does not work on an android phone apparently from what I am all reading on blogs, forces me to connect to my 2.4ghz home network band in order to do any software updates.

    I bought this radar protector to help minimize my tickets, and it has definitely done its job. It does take the radar protector a little bit of time to learn false channels, but once it learns it works incredibly well. Anywhere to school zones, speed traps, or being scanned it has saved me numerous times!

    what i love about max360c is that it automatically connect your car wifi or your phone hotspot automatically. NO actions needed on users part, NO need to launch Escort Live on phone. Max360c automatically connects to your car/phone hotspot for Escort Live which give you advance warning ahead of police or speed traps.
