Escort Max 360 Review/Preview

Watch out Valentine, the new Escort Max 360 has arrows!
Escort Max 360

Today is a big day for those of us in the radar detector and countermeasure industry. A really big day.

Over the last several decades, Escort has produced some really spectacular and innovative radar detectors.  There have been some real stand-outs—including the Passport 8500 X50, Escort Redline, and the Passport 9500ci.  But as innovative as they all have been, there has always been something "missing" in these radar detectors.

That's all about to change.  Why?

Because Escort has finally given us the one capability that has eluded them (and us) for decades--a fully directional radar detector with both a front and rear facing antenna.

This new radar detector is called the Escort Max 360 and it's Escort's new top-of-line windshield-mount radar detector.

Coupled with the other advanced capabilities of the Escort Max 360, the notion of situational awareness has just been taken to a whole new level.

Cobra DSP 9200 BT Radar Detector Review by the Veil Guy

Cobra DSP 9200 BT Radar Detector Review

Published 9/20/2015

Cobra DSP-9200BT Radar Detector

We recently test drove the new Cobra DSP 9200 BT radar detector to determine if this Cobra radar detector lives up to its billing and its heady price tag.

The Cobra DSP 9200 BT replaces the Cobra SPX-7800BT as the new top-of-the-line radar detector.  For the first time in Cobra's history, this new model features digital signal processing or DSP.

DSP technology brings with it the potential to raise the bar on detector performance, promising the highest levels of radar detection range of any Cobra.

Are the improvements enough to finally give the likes of Beltronics, Escort, and Valentine radar detectors a run for their money?
