Escort Max 360c Review

Escort just released the new Max 360c ($699), their successor to the original Max 360 ($649).

Let’s take a closer look now at its key features in this Max 360c review and compare the Escort Max360 and the Max360c to see if the new 360c is a worthy successor to the original.

Blackvue DR750S-2CH Review

Blackvue’s latest top of the line dashcam is the DR750S-2CH. It’s a significant upgrade over their previous top of the line, the DR650S-2CH. (If you’re already familiar with the DR650S, check out my DR650S vs. DR750S comparison.) I ran the DR650S as my primary dashcam for about a year and upgraded to the the DR750S a little over 2 months ago. I’m a big fan of how fully featured the DR750S is and it’s one of my favorite dashcams as an all-around package. It’s the dashcam that I now run in my car full-time.

The Blackvue DR750S-2CH dashcam offers good quality video, records both in front of me and behind, records both when I’m driving and when I’m parked, is very impressive at night, has integrated GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities, and basically offers me complete protection which I love. In fact, since installing DR750S, it’s already saved the day recording a hit and run right behind me!
