However there were three times during the trip that the highway patrol was out in force. Many patrol cars not even trying to hide pointing the radar guns right at the oncoming traffic but my detector didn’t even chirp. What the hell? Not even a sound. If the officers were using laser my detector warns about that too (often too late) but it does warn me. Are they using something new?
I went to the Escort website and looked at their top of the line model. The Escort Max 360c is $599, connects to wi-fi connected ability as well as linking to your smartphone the thing seems really advanced. But just like mine it covers X, K, Ka, & Laser bands, with no sign of a new band. I’ve emailed Escort about this and have yet to hear back.
Here in Ontario radar detectors are illegal and believe me the police look for them. If you are caught you are fined and the device is confiscated. Because of this reason I only use mine in “dark mode” and at night. But in light of my last trip I feel much less secure and wonder if it’s even worth the risk if its missing something.
I'll update when I know more.
