Uniden R3 OBLITERATES Escort Max 360 on approaching constant-on reflected 35.5 Ka.

Escort Max 360 alerting range was 1.6 miles
Uniden R3 alerting range was 3.3 miles!

These results suggest at least 6dB increase in sensitivity of the Uniden R3 vs the Escort Max 360, which equates to double the detection range.

      See I'm testing my R3 out now. I bought and have had it for a couple weeks now. I haven't really been flying yet. Most I have pushed it was 10mph over. What do you guys normally go over for speed?

      My r3 won't do a mile; I usually get 3/4 mile. My r3 won't update either. Can I send it to Uniden to see if they can fix the problems?

      Almost purchased a much pricier Escort when I came across the Uniden R3. I dismissed it as another low end radar detector...until I read the reviews. Saved myself $250 and ordered the R3 over the Passport Max.

      How many miles per hour do you normally go over with your R3? I bought mine a couple weeks ago.

      Does the R3 consistently beat the 360?

      In every single test done (except from the rear because of the rear horn on the 360)

      Think that is because escort focuses on stopping false detection. They figure 1.3 miles enough. Unless you are doing 130.. But then you have waze too

      On 2 road trips though Texas and New Mexico my Redline Ex was giving me 2 to 3mile detection. I though they were false but HWP every time!! It did go crazy when a Mazda was around a few times...

      But you can't tell direction though. Sometimes the LEO's pull up to the same road as you from the back. Knowing direction is important.

      @Brian Weaver How much better is it than the Max 360? I mean, it doesn't really matter unless you drive a supercar or something but still they can have their radar off then flick it on.

      Distance matters! When there are only 3 other cars on the highway late at night, and you are 2+ miles behind when the car in front gets hit. The Escort just got U Busted. Or the cop is savvy and patient, only checking a vehicle every 3-5 minutes. So you travel at least three miles between the hits...sure hope your detector alerts from that far away.

      Just ordered and received a Max 360c...couldn’t get it to connect to WiFi 2.4 while in phone app, tried several different WiFi 2.4 routers between friends, mobile hotspot, etc...Called Escort Live customer service for help which was useless as I got the feeling I was bothering her, terrible customer service! After all that I decided to return the Max 360c and order the R3 today. Can’t wait to try it and wish I would have done better research! I believe I corrected my mistake by ordering the R3. Lesson learned. Do your homework and support a company that cares about their customers and products. My opinion.

      I’m on my amazon order deciding which one to go for Uniden R3/ max 360.
      I love Uniden range but wish it has direction alert :(
      So I’m going to go with the cute birdy sound.

      This a great example of a NC Trooper popping his radar on and off. I was able to pick him up as he clocked other cars up the road. Then he turned it off until he saw me. Start the video at 1:20 https://youtu.be/ogDGTItdK3E

      i don't know was ready to throw my 360 away because of so many false alerts sometimes it learns some times not not sold on the performance or price, sold on arrows for sure they are accurate
      updated and it got better, but for the price.... all over again i would go with the r3 jus saying

      Incredible. I was about to pull the trigger on a 360. Glad I didn't. This will be great for long open stretches of highway, at night, when I'm blazing down I-25 at 100+!

      You don't know that that was reflection off the vehicle....most cop cars around where I live have front and rear facing guns that they have on simultaneously. Also, what everyone is saying about over sensitivity is spot on. My Escort Max drives me nuts as it is when it gets Ka and I never see a cop anywhere especially around overpasses and interchanges. The reason I quit using my V1 was over sensitivity when it would detect a cop 3+ miles away and it would take ages to finally see that it was a cop going in same direction as me on a highway and it took 10 mins to catch up to him. As for the R3 sounds I agree totally. You can make the best performing detector in the world but if a anime nerd designs the sounds and they drive you bat shit crazy it ruins the rest of it for me.

      it comes with 2 different mounts, the bigger single suction unit works best (and adjustable) and don't have a problem with it coming off.
