    Hello all!
    My name is Mike. I live in upstate SC. Iv been a RD enthusiast for several years. Iv owned an Escort Passport for a few years and it has served me well. After the first year of operation, I had yet to have a real alert to K band so I turned it off. The Passport has been great but Escorts support has not. Constant Escort Live compatibility issues with my old IPhone6s plus. I’m a follower of Vortex’s channel on YouTube and the R3 really peaked my interest. Long story short I updated to IOS12 on my 6splus and Escort live worked fine. I switched to the new 10smax and I can’t connect to my Passport anymore. Final straw and I bought the R3. IMO, the R3 is a good bit more technical and less straight forward than my Passport but that’s why I joined the forum. I hope to learn more about my R3 and contribute in anyway to the forum.

    Welcome Mike!

    Nice choice on the R3, its a solid performer, once you have it dialed into the settings you want it will be good to go, it does have more options than other models so you can really tune it to your needs.

    Welcome to the RD Forum!

    Using any other available counter measures?

    I am the perfect example that old dogs CAN learn new tricks! This Forum is packed with tons of useful information from best detector for where you live and drive mostly (so far there is NOT a single detector that is best for everyone/everywhere), proper mounting possibilities, additional counter measures, fast but intelligent driving habits, and of course @Vortex videos!
