You're correct Vortex, but Escort is counting on the fact that 99% of the folks buying RD's don't understand that difference.Hasn't this come up before? The way Escort is using the term "Artificial Intelligence" is radically different from what AI is actually about.
A GPS autolearn algorithm does involve a computer "learning" its surroundings, but that's not the same thing as true machine learning or Artificial Intelligence...
You and I know it's a warmed-over turd. But the public doesn't. Cobra and Escort are just two different lines produced by the same parent company. For detectors, they try to position Cobra as budget gear and Escort as premium top-shelf stuff. Back when Escort did good work and produced good products, they built a good name for themselves. The company that bought the name (along with the Cobra name and Beltronics name) has been milking that for everything its worth since then.Stop trying to fake it as a cutting edge new and competitive device.
Stick a fork into Cobra, Whistler and the like.
