This is a pretty big update with a lot of changes to K band, including improved BSM filtering, additional false alert filtering, MRCD improvements, and an improved menu structure. Auto-lockouts are still in development and are not included in this update, but they should be in the next update. Let’s run through all the new features and improvements that Uniden has been working on for the past months.

How to Set Up & Configure Your Escort Max 3 Radar Detector

Escort Max 3The Escort Max 3 (purchase here) comes with a bunch of settings and options to let you customize your experience. It does a good job out of the box as a plug-and-play detector, but you can tweak it even further. Let’s go over how to use your detector as well as how to optimize its performance and false alert filtering.

You can program your detector either 1) directly in the detector or 2) using the Escort Live app. Most settings are available in both places, but doing it through the phone is faster and easier.

Escort Max 3 Review

Escort has recently released the new Max 3 ($399) radar detector. It offers longer range and better false alert filtering than previous generations of Max-series detectors which is surprising because it’s not based on the same digital platform. There are a few issues I’ve discovered at launch that should be addressed in an upcoming update, but the Max 3 otherwise looks like a pretty great choice for an easy to use, long range, mid-priced radar detector.

Escort Redline 360c 1.3 and Max 3 Testing

After testing the brand new Escort Redline 360c last month, we discovered a bunch of critical issues. Fortunately Escort has since released firmware 1.3 which helped resolve most all the problems that we saw in initial testing. Now that the detector is working properly, I headed back out to retest the Redline 360c. With the new firmware, it now behaves much better and performs very well. As a bonus, I had a chance to also test out the brand new Escort Max 3 as well.

Escort Redline 360c Radar Detector Testing

Time to test out the brand new $749 Escort Redline 360c. Escort claims it offers “noticeably” better performance than the Uniden R7 and Valentine 1 Gen2, longer range than the Max 360c, and 2x the range of the Redline EX.

How good is the new RL360c in practice? Time to run it head-to-head against the toughest competition and see how it compares.
