Escort have a reputation for making some of the best Radar detectors on the market – and this model keeps up that proud tradition by bringing a number of excellent and useful features to the table.
Firstly, the detector itself is extremely sensitive, providing 360 degree protection from both Radar and Laser speed guns. Having the ability to detect both – and with a high degree of sensitivity – is a really useful feature.
What tips it over many other similar models however is the built in GPS system. Now, this uses a preloaded database with thousands of permanent camera locations. However, it also communicates (via GPS) with other Escort detector users. This creates a constantly updating, real time map of camera and speed gun locations. This can even help to protect against temporary speed traps set up on the fly by single police officers parking up by the side of the road.
That is just a fantastic level of protection, from a device which is expensive, don’t get me wrong – but it’s the not the most expensive on this list either.
