Every product that is sold is sold through Escort and their distributors. The problem is a lot of companies think its easy to sell and they put in on their shelves and online stores and guess what they dont sell because everyone is selling the same product at the same price and there are better more established business to buy from so these companies get desperate and start selling it cheaper than the MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) and then Escort tells these companies that they are now unauthorized because they broke their MAP Policy. These companies come and go all the time. The ONLY reason RadarBusters has stayed alive is because they are known as the 10% off shop. Heck they usually have banners splashed all over their site and they discount everything but I guess theoretically they are not violating Escorts policy because they advertise the prices at MAP but then promote the crap out of their 10% private VIP Program.

Uniden products are hot and unlike Escort Uniden does not need to give their stuff away so they wont stand for that 10% off crap so RB had to exclude them from any discounts but they will discount any Escort product to move it and I guess Escort is happy at this point to move anything so they let it continue.

The only reason we were temporarily listed as Unauthorized is because after seeing how better Uniden was performing we really were not selling Escort anymore and Escort was not happy with that. At one time we were selling almost $1M a year in Escort & Beltronics detectors but all that business moved over time to Uniden & Net Radar and to clear out some MAX 360 units that were collecting dust we put them for sale at $100 off and since VG watches everything we do he probably ran to Escort and within 1 day we got the unauthorized notice after being a dealer for over 12 years. It did not bother me because I really prefer to sell other products which perform better.

Long story short I made a deal with Escort to just return the inventory that was not selling and they removed the notice.
So you are again an authorized Escort dealer?

If that is true and that is good in your eyes, then I'm happy for you.

I would love it if Uniden would improve their secondary features. If/when that happens, I'd love to get the R3 again and I'll be buying from you. I, along with everyone else here, appreciate the support and attention you give to this website. I wasn't happy with the R3 for a few reasons but that doesn't mean I was unhappy with you or the service you provided. So thank you.

And get on Uniden's @ss. They can at least improve the db with a fw change.

Thanks for the explanation. I appreciate it.

Yes, but I believe he said Escort removed the Unauthorized label. Maybe I misunderstood. Wouldn't be the first time. Or the last.

From BRD's post:

"The only reason we were temporarily listed as Unauthorized"

and

"they removed the notice".

This suggested to me that his status as authorized is restored. Even if Escort doesn't currently have a competitor to the R3, I would think he'd want to keep his options open.

And, again, for MD drivers, if they have any experience at all, they'll realize the laser alerts do have meaning and benefit.

No, I ended up returning all my Escort & Beltronics inventory which was a great deal for us since I had old Bel 100's, 200's, Solo's, IX's Etc. and I got all my money back which was better than clearing them out one at a time at a discount. I have no need to sell Escort any longer. With the Uniden and the New Net Radar stuff coming in the future our customers will be very well covered.

Damn...ok, I was wrong with my last post. When you said "temporarily", I though it meant you were again authorized even if Escort has nothing to compete with the R3.

In about 6 months, I'll be getting a new car. I'm considering an installed solution but I haven't decided for sure yet. Can you tell me when the new Netradar system will be out?

About 6 months ago, I was waiting for test results on the MaxCi. I'll have to look back through old tests to see if Netradar was tested but more importantly, I'll keep my eyes open for tests on their new unit.

A question - I won't attempt an install. Do you have installers around the country?

If not, but if you have someone local to you, I'm just outside of Baltimore and I would consider an overnight trip up to northern NJ. That would give the installer 2 full days. Two full days would be enough, no?

My asking is a little premature but I'd like to know so that I don't eliminate an installed option without having all the info/facts.

Thanks again for your input. It is appreciated.

Dan

Apparently he has an axe to grind. I used to enjoy the way he writes; one of the better Fiction writers out there. I do think that Vile worked to some degree against older guns that took awhile to lock on some cars. The latest iterations of lidar guns, though, make Vile worthless. You could argue it sometimes works at distances more than 1000', but how helpful is that?

I think his takeover of Roy's business yet acting as if Roy still runs it, despite having passed away, is the definition of unscrupulous. He should read what he writes and wonder deep inside why Escort still keeps him minimally in the loop. He's a liability for sure.

Veil Guy aka Robert Rosania starts new company every 5 minutes. Exaggerates the hell out of them. Everything from "Military Technology" to "Web Expert" to "Marketing Relationships" companies.....guy is a fraud IMHO. Blog uses free software and he touts one of his companies as "technology marketing experts".

I can see the bandwagon really clearly and I'm going to jump on and take up this one little spot, what a tool. How dare here compare BRD with unscrupulous and grey dealers.

I see you got GT-7s still in stock (http://www.bestradardetectors.net/Beltronics-Radar-Detectors.html) which kind of surprised me, since I doubt you'll move any at $500. Just a thought.

VG attacks BRD,but for what reason?

Maybe because Tom is the biggest seller of Uniden on the globe,and works with Uniden on platforms. VG and Roy trashed,and bashed the 950's,now VG is all about the R1/R3 until Cedar ups his payroll. VG was way late to the party of the R1/R3 project. He never ever got his hands on a Pre-production R3,and we made sure of that. He is a con-man and a very good one at that.

VG needs to learn you can't build yourself up by smearing others. BRD goes that extra mile for their customers and VG's criticism is childish sour grapes.

In all seriousness.
Veil Guy is a narcissist. He semi believes his own bullshit. If you watch his video reviews when there are others he will make a "profound sounding statement" and look quickly at them. It is a human nature reaction he cannot control.....he is looking to see if they believe him. See for yourself. He has no confidence in what he is saying.
Further he files new companies like I change skivvies. Internet Marketing, Web Security, Military Technology......etc.....but yet his blog is using free services and is as elementary as you can get. Why?
Guys like him feel a company gives them standing and a veil of credibility....when in fact he has none.
He is a leech and not a leader. He is not an innovator but a fraud taking credit for others innovation. So he will always be late to the party.
He is passive aggressive in his post and writings. This reflects his own insecurities.
He is behind leading people to believe Roy is running things and displays all of Roys background on Radar Busters...even has his voice on the phone system....he uses post that are deleted to attack a rival seller..posting them in his blog like they provide some validity to his attack (see it there again?).......he makes ridiculous claims of Veil. Disproven so many times by so many test it becomes offensive. Guys like Veil Guy will keep going and keep making those claims simply because (again) he believes his own bullshit.
IMHO
