i finally pull the trigger and upgrade my max360c to RL360c. i have the max360c for 2.5 years, it's time for upgrade :)
i select the Trade In option for 80$ credits, just buy a cheap RD at eBay for 14$ (someone mentioned that on this website, sorry i'm too lazy to look up who said it).
be surprised if they honored a real cheap detector for the $80...you may wanna call Escort first... before you purchase the cheap one 🤔

I may be wrong, but my interpretation is $40 for older Escorts & other competitors, and $80 for newer model Escorts. I would definitely give Escort a call first!

I broke down and ordered one. The best bsm filtering according to vortex was my game changer. Hoping it ships soon before i go on a mini vacation to Arizona. I've got a super old passport somewhere i've got to dig out for the $120 trade in and i'm going to sell my uniden to knock down the price even further. Plus k is heavily used in my town so i can't wait to test it out!

Opps I reread the trad in and i see it's $80 for any detector. Still ok. At least pays for the taxes.

when I called Escort CS line it said that the Que was full and for me to check back later. Well knowing better, I continued to redial and finally got put into the que and was number 30 on the list. SO WAITING ON HOLD IT TOOK 2 HOURS TO GET TO SPEAK TO A CS AGENT CALLED Misty. She was kind but had no idea of my situation and stated that she didn't know when they were shipping out new orders. I TOLD HER THAT i opted for the second day shipping and she just said to and get this " LOOK AT THE PICTURE AND SMILE and enjoy'" AS i wait for it to arrive. SO THATS MY EXPEREINCE- not what ID HOPED FOR TO SAY THE LEAST.

Next time maybe opt for the call back

Not sure how Cedar operates and how they give the estimated delivery dates. Normally business will estimate those based on supply chain and sales demands, as well as internal QA process lead time, etc. slightly off schedule due to uncontrollable facts is not uncommon. But for CS to tell you how many units on back order is totally wrong or pure BS. Sale revenue related figures are company confidential information, and should not nor available to share in such manner.

I got a reply back from managment... not happy about that at all... the sales department are told what to say and its the inconsistencies that make people upset... they will give you false information to sell you a detector and management wants me to relay it to everyone... its not my job to🙄
