Passport Max remains BLIND to Pro Laser III. My V1 has NEVER let me down on alerting to LIDAR, NOT ONCE! Goes to show how far ahead Mike V. is with LIDAR detection

Stop yourself, you're going from a Zombie to a Maxi-Pad in no time :)

Max was silent :( As Colonel Klink would say: " Zees iz not so goods."

There is NO EXCUSE why Escort is SO FAR behind in LIDAR detection. Even the Whistler is ahead of them with the CR85

X2, I do have an 9500Ix that is very HOT on lidar, BUT still NOT as good as the V1 !!!

Escort RD's are werid when it comes to laser my 9500ix is pretty good, but the new x50 blacks are terrible, the Redline is decent. None of them are as good as the V1 and they don't seem to ever progress or get better.

I found the 8500 X50 to be quite good on laser (relative to the class leading V1), so they have been able to make a good laser front-end in the past.

It is disappointing with respect to the Max detection (or lack of), because we have found that the Kustom guns are basically the easiest to detect given their dispersion pattern. So missing a Kustom, doesn't bode well for other lasers, such as the more difficult to detect, LTI.

Here's an oldie but a goodie test with a bunch of detectors versus a host of lasers.

Notice, even Cobras do well versus Kustom! :eek:

That's not too good. Personally not a huge concern just due to the real challenge of actually pulling a save from a laser alert. Where mine is mounted I doubt my Max would ever alert to laser at all anyway. There's a purpose for everything and I got a RD for radar. I'll get parking sensors to take care of laser.

Wow that is pretty bad.

I have had no problem like that with belscort lidar detection.

Though I do agree nothing compares to the V1's lidar detection

As Steve has demonstrated in the real-world, with a good laser detector, a good vehicle, and Veil, saves can and do happen, without having to rely on actives. So for me, laser detection is always an essential component of a good radar detector.

X2. I trust a V1, Veil, and a Laser Shield any day of the week. I have had MANY passive saves and my wife has gone fully passive. Eventually I will buy her a jammer but for now Veil and a Laser Shield is what she relies on. What is bad about the Max struggling with the Pro Laser III is the fact that the Pro Laser III is extremely popular

The ProLaser III is widely used in my state both by troopers and locals. Unfortunately, I discovered the first week I had the Max that it was blind to it. As I was coming home from a client dinner one evening I watched a city cop standing in the shadows of an overpass paint me with a PL III and my Max cruised by blind, deaf and mute. I've had many a hit with my V1, but never with the Max.

I too am going passive with the measures you mentioned.

Happya$$, you're making me want to purchase outside of Escort now. :p

Also, I will stop paying my N.Ridgeville taxes to slow the purchase of Lidar. lol. I always thought that N. Olmsted were the only trouble makers besides OSP on I-480.

Thanks for the video and testing.

My 9500XI never go's off when my M47 do.. About the only time I get a laser alert on it is when I go thru a toll. I guessing because I have it pretty high up.

Belscort has always been hit-or-miss for lidar detection. I don't have a Max but the most sensitive to laser Belscort I've had is my M4 RX65 of all things. It beats my Redline and the S7 X50 I used to have.

That LI voice pack screams 2009 to me. :haw: And that was a long JTK, close to 7 seconds. Surely you could do better than that! :razz:
