    Quote of the Month on the Max: Responding to HC's tests on the ERF, " Escort intentionally reduced the Ka band reception on Max to reduce falsing." My reply: " I hope so… if this is an adult I give up on this generation. If it's a kid I give up on the parents."

    ** Remember this: We are just Backyard testers, the cheeseburger and Hooter's type ** We spend no $$ to do these tests and need SML & C.P. to show us how they are done!!
    1 Bel Stir-O Build Date 25/08 ( my baby is almost 6 years old and still rocking)
    1 GRE PSR-800
    1 Escort Roush Mustang fully equipped with ECMs, soon to get the Bridge Box and LSPs (aka "Sasha" )
    1 9500ci with ZR4s & LSP (Don't have Bridge BOX yet)
    1 ALP w/ Bluetooth and Quints
    1 Passport Max, V 1.8 w/ Knight Rider Display deactivated; # 1 Order on 05/29/13 Received 07/16/2013
    1 Belscort Redline (segs 2,5,8, with RDR OFF) , it sits below my SC55 (still better than My Max 1.8
    1 Escort Passport IQ (the greatest idea that could have been, should have been BUT never was in performance) really needed an M3
    3 V-1Cs (2 X .893 and 1 X .892) (Finally get to make use of them (ESP) with V1connection LE and Savvy and Francky's YaV1 for Droid HTC )
    2 RX 65 S7 ** ( IMHO, best unit out there for the $$$ and objective testing confirms this)
    3 9500iX + 1 new 9500iX for Juniorette's car (Pearl white with Pink Stripe) /Gamer Edition(love the display) / Race Edition
    1 Beltronics Vector 995 Build Date: 4110
    1 Escort SC55 RLC Detector
    2 Speed Cheetah C50 RLC Detector (best RLC/Speed detector unit there is)
    1 Cobra Aura RLC detector
    1 Magellan with RLC POIs
    1 Tom Tom with RLC/Speed Cam POIs)
    Zaon PCAS MRX with antenna extender (yes, it works IF you know how to use and interpret the info it provides)

    Pointman, Official ER Rep states: " Finally, in another test of pre-production software performed independently by SML, the new Max received radar signals (all bands) from beyond all previous recorded tests to date for any and all detectors. With final production software, the Max is the longest range radar detector available ever, for all guns, all bands."

    Its not on the Whistler website so it looks like a Costco Exclusive. Most likely its just the 540 with the new display and the red periscopes. If is uses the same antenna as the 540 its not a bad unit but not as good as the old Solo S2 but I would never buy a cordless unit myself.

    I have a cheaper whistler cordless that works pretty well. This one looks like a major improvment over that one.
