ESCORT introduced the ESCORT MAX 3 radar today, a connected driver alert system with new features and access to the ESCORT driving community. It’s the newest product in ESCORT’s line of radar and laser detection and driver awareness technology.
With an extended detection range and advanced filtering capabilities, according to ESCORT, the MAX 3 is primed to recognize and validate legitimate road threats and deliver timely alerts about police activity, red light and speed camera locations, road hazards and accidents. The new MAX 3 builds upon existing ESCORT products like the MAX 2 and iX with an upgraded technology platform.
“As summer travel ramps up and the number of cars on the road increases, the MAX 3 makes high-end detection technology accessible for new users and a wide range of drivers, whether a commuter, road tripper or driving enthusiast,” the company announced.
The MAX 3 uses a patented AutoLearn feature to learn and automatically reject false alerts with GPS, while its IVT Filter minimizes interference from in-vehicle technology like blind spot monitoring and collision avoidance systems. Used alongside navigation apps like Waze, Google Maps or Apple Maps, the MAX 3 can also verify and validate road alerts.
“We are committed to providing today’s drivers with smarter driver awareness solutions to take the guesswork out of the journey,” said Gail Babitt, CEO of Cedar Electronics. “The ESCORT MAX 3 is uniquely designed to deliver on this promise with its impressive range, keen ability to discern threats from noise and access to real-time, reliable alerts when they’re needed most. As more and more Americans opt for road travel this summer, we’ve designed our solutions to increase confidence behind the wheel and provide the most accurate, up-to-date information available to help drivers reach their destinations quickly and safely.”
MAX 3 users can tap into more than 100 million vehicle-to-vehicle driver alerts annually directly through the mobile ESCORT Live App for information on traffic and law enforcement cameras, live radar and laser reports, speed limit data, construction, road hazard, traffic and accident alerts. The combination of crowdsourced, database-driven and machine-generated alerts from other users, ESCORT detectors, and ESCORT’s Defender Database is at the core of the ESCORT Live App.
The ESCORT MAX 3 radar is available on escortradar.com and at most Best Buy locations nationwide for $399.99. It comes equipped with a magnetic mount for easy set-up in the vehicle, a SmartCord USB charger with AutoMute and a protective travel case.
