When it comes to protecting yourself against police speed traps with laser and radar, Ralph’s Radio in Vancouver and Victoria turns to Escort radar detection solutions. Escort has been one of the top names in radar detectors for 40 years. Through that time, they’ve led technological advances like GPS integration and crowd-sourced information to help drivers get to their destinations without hassle. Let’s take a look at how Escort products help prevent our clients from getting speeding tickets.
Custom-Installed Radar Detectors
The Escort MAX CI and IX CI custom-installed radar detection and laser defense systems are some of the most popular in the world. In terms of radar warnings, the systems feature state-of-the-art DSP-based radar receivers with twin antennae. Each receiver horn is optimized to work with various radar bands for maximum long-range sensitivity.
Picking up radar signals is important, but knowing how to interpret those signals is what separates that good from the great. Escort’s In-Vehicle Technology (IVT) filter blocks false alarms from radar-based control and blind-spot monitoring systems. When combined with information from the included GPS receiver, users can mark the locations of known radar speed displays and even speed traps. The result is a solution that only alerts you when you need a warning. Of course, Escort MAX CI and IX CI radar receivers are designed to be undetectable by radar detector detectors.
Protect Yourself Against Police Laser
As more and more police forces move from radar to laser or lidar, Escort has kept pace with its ShifterMax laser transceivers. These high-sensitivity receivers constantly monitor the road ahead of and behind you for light signals from police lidar. When a pattern is detected, they transmit a series of light pulses that prevent the officer from measuring your speed. You can check your speed, then cancel the transmission, so the officer will let you continue to your destination.
Escort ShifterMax laser transceivers have been tested to work with all of the popular lidar guns, including the hard-to-block DragonEye and its dreaded electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM) mode.
Custom System Design and Installation
While high-quality products are crucial to protecting our clients from speeding tickets, how we integrate those products into your vehicle plays an equally important role in the system’s functionality. Of particular sensitivity are laser receivers. Escort has very specific guidelines for the distance between sensors, the distance the sensors are from the ground, and how each unit is aimed. We take these criteria into consideration when designing the installation to ensure that everything works flawlessly to let you travel ticket- and hassle-free.
Next, our technicians take care to route the wires and cables from each sensor and radar receiver carefully through your vehicle. We protect the wiring from damage using the same automotive-grade cloth and fabric tapes that are used in the assembly of vehicles. We mount control modules and antennae so that they are secure while being accessible for servicing.
Finally, and most importantly, we work with every client to determine the best installation solutions for the displays and control panels in each system. We can create custom mounting pods and finish them to match the interior of your vehicle. Bespoke mounting panels in center consoles are another of our unique touches that ensure installations are easy to use while looking as though they’re an original part of the vehicle.
Portable Radar Detector Solutions
Escort is well-known for the Redline and MAX-Series portable radar detectors. Escort’s portable detectors offer many of the same features as its custom-installed solutions. Premium long-range X, K and Ka-band detection, compatibility with POP radar, and GPS integration help keep you protected. The latest models include auto learning technology to reduce false alarms from door openers and vehicle safety systems. Portable units are a great solution for clients with multiple vehicles or for those who travel for business and want to take a radar detector with them.
The Redline 360c and Max 3 can both be upgraded with the M1 Dashcam to record crystal clear video of everything that happens in front of your vehicle when you drive.
Escort developed the Escort Live smartphone app to let users share real-time information about police and false-alarm activity as they drive. The app works to let you know about speed traps that pop up unexpectedly. With 3.5 million drivers using the app, there shouldn’t be any surprises on your next commute or adventure.
