Thread: Escort 360 Max

Results 1 to 14 of 14
  1. #1 Default Escort 360 Max 
    Looks like the difference between Escort and Valentine just diapered.

    Some info on the arrows and modes.

    I did the preorder as an upgrade for my 9500xi

    Interesting to see how it shakes out

    Yup, zero reason to pick the V1 now. This has more modern hardware, more features, not just an old model with updated firmware.

    What was the trade in discount on the on the 9500? Looks like the patent on the arrows ran out... have had V1s in each car for most of my driving years. Always heard bad things about the future of VR and how they handle customers.. wonder what they will now finally do to compete, after years of little stale product developments.

    I think they said $120 on the forum. my advice is go to eBay. you will probably get closer to 300. There is one on eBay now and it has 270 worth of bids on it

    I saw that the other day. I figured it was a patent thing.

    I can't speak for everyone else but my customer service with Valentine has been outstanding.

    If you buy via the website you get lifetime speeding fine protection (please note its a short life "speeding violations occurring between October 1, 2015 and January 31, 2017.")

    "Purchase your Max 360 detector directly from us and if you get a radar or laser speeding ticket, we’ll pay for it*"

    I glanced at the terms and conditions and they seem fairly reasonable other than the term

    Other than the arrows is it worth it to trade up from 9500xi to max? I looked at technical specs and didnt see any other real differences? I'm actually running 2 9500's, have the xi hard wired up on visor and ci installed. I find I get better coverage this way with one down low in bumper and one up higher on visor. Just for having the latest and greatest I would possibly upgrade but only if max can be mounted on visor, I hate them on windshield, but from looking on site not sure it can be put on visor? Also I recently had my useless escort jammers replaced with much better ALP and now 3 heads instead of 2. Oh and if I do upgrade will sell my 9500ix if anyone is interested

    scott it probably uses the same cord and mount as your 9500 so just remove 9500 and put the new one in place.

    Got mine yesterday.

    First impressions:

    1. its bigger - i would say its 1.6 x the width
    2. its heavier - 1.6 times the weight. you have to use the new suction cup mount. the old mount will not work. I would not hang it from a rear view mirror
    3. the new suction cup is well configured - you can get the right angle easily (3 degree down angle is optimal)
    4. I like that you can change the screen color. I did not like the idea of blue. the red matches my dial needle.

    so far i get more false alarms than i did with my other I am assuming its learning
    Arrows are good. I defiantly see the benefit I got a K upfront last night at the same time a KA popped up behind. Good to know he was behind me

    I have to read the manual - it has a lot of options

    The quick start guide talks about 2 models; 360 max and the 360 max platinum. per escort their is no difference between the 2 models other than color and the Platinum comes with a free key chain or wallet kind of thing. the platinum will be sold at specialty retailers wile the max will be sold factory direct.

    The 360 has plenty of user modes .I find it to be the very best unit I have ever had .It picks up radar traps at an amazing distance.And best off very few false alarms .The learning mode is 1st rate.
    Nothing else will ever do once you try it
