my name is Mitch. I am currently in the market for a new detector. Got a new car with all the advanced features and my old detector is ringing like crazy. Need something that will block out the in car radar. Hoping to learn from your experiences.

Hi Mitch, what vehicle did you get? there are lots of great options but depending on what you drive we may want to suggest specific models that can filter out the vehicle you have successfully.

BMW X4 M40i. As the car has a hotspot and I am a Mac user I was thinking of the new escort C models, the 360c or iXc. Updating via in car WiFi is appealing to me. Heard some negatives about Escort but saw interview with new management and looks promising. What do you think?

I'd post a thread over here: www.rdforum.org: General Radar Detector Discussion and answer the question found here: www.rdforum.org: How to Ask for A Radar Detector recommendation: so we can give you specifics. Wifi is a nice feature, but the number of updates that come out is not terribly high so as far as updating it it's only something you would do a couple times a year generally... and you can do it in your garage with your home wifi. I wouldn't make that the deciding factor, performance and filtering are important though and depending on your environment and driving habits will make the difference in what works best.

Welcome to the RD Forum!

Does the new vehicle have a BSM System? Also what State do you live in and drive in mostly? If you State not longer uses X or K Band, many new detectors let you turn those off. My state no longer uses X band so I have it turned off and since I run ALP and TMG, I have Laser turned off also. Are you currently running a Radar Detector and if so, which one? 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!
