I tried it on my super off-axis, hard course and it was still able to detect the 34.7 signal at 1000 feet. Redline 360c was alerting around 1550 feet for comparision. That's the limited use review so far.

Good man. 4 Internets awarded to you.
Off axis 34.7 and 1/4 mile aint bad. I wish Escort would release their FCC stuff now the unit is available to the public.
Curious what we got under the hood. M4+/M5?

There has been a few posts here that I unapproved for review by the forum administrator.

I'm just not sure if they should be allowed here, they have not been deleted, if the forum administrator says they are OK they will be back.

Thanks for understanding!

Better to take a cautious approach, flylow. I agree.

How are you liking the Max 3? Very little info about it out there so far. Considering this one as a gift for my oldest son.

It sounds like its got all the new features like K notch, and the auto JTK feature with the shifters. I think this will be a great lower cost option for people that want the new features and aren't as concerned with having the absolute best in range/filtering. This detector is still going to have awesome range, and filtering I am sure!

I really like it Tony. I would recommend it for a gift for sure. It has some of the new features of the R360c, namely K-Notch and JTK for shifters. It is EXTREMELLY quiet and has good range. I've run it quite a bit now and it really is a nice detector with a LOT of features such as connecting with Escort Live for additional alerts. All the GPS features are there too like low speed muting and Auto lockouts.

Make sure to have him run it in HIGHWAY mode, as AUTO needs some work to make it be not so aggressive in neutering K range.

So a question for ER, is this an all-digital MAX platform or a part analog iX platform? It looks to me to be an iXc without the" c." Does it have an M4, M5 or other horn?

Thanks Much
It has been confirmed the Max 3 is essentially an iX with some new firmware. It uses an "M4++" horn. Wasn't all that impressed with it considering the price point. Seems like they're trying to phase out the 9500ix and replace it with this.

I'm very happy with my Max 3. It does a very good job filtering, which is what I was looking for. I see the posts about it not being digital, but it's great for what I wanted. I put it in my wife's car. She used to complain about my IX (not IXc) about all the alerts. So far so good. No complaints at all. It filters as well as my 360c.
