It all depends on what one is looking for in an RD. I agree that my Max 360 is quieter than my R series detectors if both are in Hwy mode.
Now if Escort would just combine it's much improved BSM filtering with M3 range in a reasonably priced windshield mount radar detector they would be onto something. Sure the 360 does appear to have better BSM filtering now, but it usually falls way behind in range and reactivity testing, especially on Ka band.

R3 filtering sucks period. I drive 5 different states all the time not the same path where you can use lock outs and in real world R3 is a joke with BSM !

Cars with bsm are like the kid in school that doesn't bathe. I get away from them asap.

I drove by Coachella on i10 in California today with the max ii. Not a single peep out of the max ii as traffic was backed up going westbound and I was eastbound and in highway mode. Not a peep was made other than some ka band. If that's not a guantlet for bsms then I don't know what else is. The coachella music festival is going on today.

I can turn K band off and not get a peep either.

With my several escort 360s and 2 escort 360c and I have travelled into known K band signal areas and had the detector not go off many many times. Even pulled out my K gun to verify and sure enough it was locked up. With escort 360's you just never know if it is "filtering" or locked up without your knowledge. Just because it was quiet is not always a good thing.

I have never had my V1, R3 or heard of any other detector do this. I dont trust escorts.

This one's getting sent off to my sister. I'm seeing what V1 has up their sleeve or if they are blowing smoke.

What about many reports of R3 going to sleep?
