Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I use Escort - they work great. Have a 10 year old 8500 - still going strong and a 1 year old Max.

For me the Valentine RDs are just too big and the Escorts alert me in plenty of time. I know many like the arrows on the Valentine RD but for me I don't care where the hit is coming from - when I get a hit I'm on the brakes - period.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I recently bought a Escort Redline. I connected it to a Sena sm10 and blue toothed it to my smh10 in my helmet. I'm very happy with the outcome. Can hear all warnings well even over music. The redline gives extremely long distance warnings.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I got tired of the Valentine falsing. Lock them out on an Escort and she's totally quiet except for real hits. Take a Valentine down I95 through CT and you'll end up shutting it off because it will constantly false on the traffic cameras microwave links. Also, an't beat the auto-learn on the Escort!

That sounds like a great set up, especially for the state we live in. I've been looking at the Redline but your system for alerts seems like the ticket, no pun intended.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I use to get the alerts via audio - didn't like it at all. For me - that 1/2 second for my brain to realize that the RD was alerting - had almost gotten me a few tickets. Now I never had it set up just for the RD alert - always had it setup with music - bike to bike. My problem was I'd be listening to music - sure the alert kills the music but again for me the transition for my noodle to process that was not instant.

If only running audio for your RD then that would be good for me.

I have been using the H.A.R.D. visual alert for years now - nothing gets my attention faster than a RED flashing LED in my face.

Even if I went back to music and bike to bike I would still keep the visual even with the audio - don't trust myself.

All joking aside - I ride somewhat at an aggressive pace and this is the fastest way for me to process the info - I can't tell you how many times I've been saved from a ticket. Everyone has their preferences this just works best for me.

Alert kills the music but not loud enough to be heard over you talking in your helmet ?

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

My Adaptive unit went wacko on KA for miles one day without ever seeing a LEO. Did notice a BMW 750 sedan next to me. Later read it has the SRR (short range radar) for collision detection. Likely see that again.

Wes this setup works great. The flashing light in my helmet distracted me. Some love it and that's ok. The Redline is on a channel to it self, therefore no lag even when listening to music.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I've used Escorts for years, with a brief try of a Bel picked up at Costco.

I put the RD inside my tank bag, with speakers in my helmet. Keeps it dry and subtle.

For years I used a Passport, then in about 2005 I replaced that with an x8500. Both connected via a wire to either speakers in the helmet or (briefly) headphone earplugs.

Problems I encountered with this setup were:
1. earphones - worked extremely well when it worked, but difficult to get helmet on without pulling on wires and dislodging the earplugs.
2. helmet speakers - depending on speakers and helmet type, can be very uncomfortable against your ears.

With my new K1300s, I decided bought into the (very nice) Schuberth C3Pro helmet. Then I added the SRC-S intercom system to it with the idea of using bluetooth to eliminate the wire to the helmet. So I bought the bluetooth version of the Escort Max. I was very happy with the Max I had in my car, including the GPS feature that allows you to mute false alerts and save their locations so they don't bother you again.

With my x8500, I had a dedicated power wire hooked to the battery, and a mute button that I placed just outside the tank bag. Get an alert, and I could simply mute it. Very nice. Unfortunately Escort doesn't have that wire for the Max, so I can't really mute the alerts as the power connector with mute button is inside my tank bag. But the Max can be set to automatically lower the alert volume after a few seconds, so I don't need the mute feature that much.

The disappointment I've had with the Max has to do with the bluetooth feature. It can only be paired to a smart phone with use of the Escort Livealert! app. I tried pairing it to my phone and pairing my phone to my helmet, but the Livealert app didn't give fast enough alerting nor other (tone) information, so it's been useless for me.

Since I could not pair the Max to the SRC-S system, I ended up buying a Sena SM-10 and just plugging the headphone jack into it. I can plug an mp3 player or my phone to a second jack on the Sena if I want, and the RD will override the music. The Sena SM-10 pairs to my SRC-S just fine, and I get alerts in the helmet without a problem.

That is, until my wife rides with me and we use the intercom. The SRC-S only talks to one bluetooth system at a time, so if we use the intercom I'm not picking up the Sena and hence not getting alerts. I have the RD set to override the intercom, and sometimes it does, but not quickly enough. This is a problem I'm still working on.

I'm mildly interested in the HARD system, but I don't want yet another device stuck on the helmet. Perhaps a bright visual alert on the top of the windshield would solve 90% of my remaining problems.

As for the detector itself, I find it the best I've used yet. Incredible range, excellent false alert performance, and the ability to store locations of false alerts makes driving around the city a lot more pleasant.

Tom:

I certainly understand one method works better for one rider and another works better for another. I didn't experience any lag time for the alert when using audio - I had a lag time processing it. I would be into the music and it took me a half second to realize the music had stopped and the RD was alerting me.

I also get that the flash could be distracting - again for me it does not bother me at all. I had thought about mounting the LED's on the bike but since I have an RR and a KS which puts me a little more above the mounting areas I thought there was a chance I would miss the alert.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

heres the way I am leaning on what I am thinking of doing....



set up on the throttle side mirrior boss...



using a RAM Mount X-mount to hold V1 in place.



with a separate display as close to my line of sight as possible...

while running this in the backround...

https://www.escortradar.com/escort-live-app/



I have downloaded the YaV1 Valentine APP



rather configurable...





all whist running the escort-live-app/



Oh, and buying a few extra seconds of alert time using this...



and for my worst case senerio...My Russian lawyer...

If you go with the V1 and travel on I95 thru CT at all then your head will explode from it falsing constantly!

Either that or the more likely scenario is that you will just switch it off and suffer the consequences. You setup the poll, why don't you believe it??

The only negative to my set up is when on intercom the alerts don't override and I'm not sure how to fix that.
Those times I rely on visual of the unit. That's when the HARD system shines.

Thats how the escort app becomes primary in urban environments. The YaV1 does allow you to tune the bands alert thresholds...I just won a ebay unit for 291.00 but rather up a bit more into it and get the newest...for 399 direct manufacturer support.

Besides, all the kids will know it is serious bidnez with a V1...now if I could get scanner list for those air born mosquitos...

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

Hello,
have i understood correctly, you have Detectors against the speed monitoring?
I know that you can buy it for cars, but i have never seen it for bikes.
I wonder if your device also work in Germany? Because of differentfrequencies
Whats the price for a good one, and how many space is required for this device?

Absolutely! When Buddy talks, I listen!

I think today, by & large most radar detectors are probably pretty equal. There are times when you're gonna get hit and pulled over no matter what, i.e., instant on or when that Trooper comes out of nowhere on his way to the donut shop & decides to hit you.

I have the Escort wired into the Autocom and for years ran it that way so I could get the audible alert through my earbuds but that required me always getting hooked into the Autocom plug which I did not use on a regular basis. Today I run the Escort SmartCord remote visual alert which is situated on top of the instrument cluster but you have to rely on your eye catching the red flashing LED alert. This approach could use some supplemental fine tuning with something like the HARD system or Marc Parnes' Visual Alert which can be mounted higher up on the windscreen and more in line with your field of vision... but I've never gotten around to it.

And then now there's Bluetooth solutions...

Same here, but get lots of false hits, especially other radar detectors and cars with collision detection SRR.
Did get 'popped' by a state trooper topping a hill, no time to slow down. RD gauge went to full instantly.

The remote allow me to mount the RD out of site.
The rear antenna
The directional arrows.
And I'm used to it.

I get you like it and I get you are use to it. I know I'm slow - why do so many V1 owners like the direction arrows so much? If I get a hit I'm on the brakes - does knowing exactly where the radar is coming from really help?

If there was a system available that would tell me with 100% accuracy that the alarm I'm receiving is someone lurking out there with a LEO badge and ticket book and it filtered everything else, THAT would be worth something. I don't see much value in knowing the direction or distance or even in filtering out false alarms if it means that there's ANY chance at all of filtering out the aforementioned guy with the ticket book. So I'm with you Bruce, if I get an alarm, I'm on the brakes to get myself slowed down. And, I set my TPX up to show me everything in the most sensitive highway mode and then permanently installed it where I can't easily change it's operation. I guess I'm just not very picky...

Let me tell you, if you lock out known false location's and an Escort goes off on Ka then 100% it is a LEO, no if and's or but's! When you lock out a known false location it memorizes the signal characteristic as well as the location. If a LEO came and setup in that same location then the detector would still alarm. Jumping on the brakes for every drug store alarm or traffic camera microwave link on X or K band would certainly get old real quick for me. I've been making a 600 mile round trip almost weekly since Labor day and my 9500ix never false's on that route which is a combination of slab, city and rural after doing the lock-outs on the first trip. After that, if it went off there's no question whether it is legit or not. The dam thing is so smart, if it see's the same bogus X or K band false a few times it will auto-lock out which you can override if you want.

Screw the arrows, nice gimmick but I don't miss it one bit. If a LEO is coming from behind then the microwave energy is getting reflected by road signs and tractor trailers in front of you so all the arrows end up lighting up and going of randomly anyway. Who cares if you see the LEO was right to your side, it's too late at that point! If you mount the V1 in/on your tank bag or where the rear antenna doesn't have a totally clear view behind you then it's pretty compromised. I much prefer the audio to tell me if I'm getting paced because the signal will be erratic but increasing in strength if you're being closed on. Also, easy to tell the difference between an alarm and a real hit when you're listening to it.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

The YaV1 app lets you lock out frequencies as well as giving a graphical screen to see if the signal falls with in the range of LEOs or if it is parking sensors from other cars. The V1 has made the 21st centry adaptations.

Yes and yes. If you look at the RD rating web sites you'll find some rate them on how easily they are detected by RDDs. I run a covert mounted TPX and ride through DC and Virginia often with no unwanted attention.

Just a thought here; with the advent of collision avoidance, the trend to short range radar may cause radar detectors to run amuck with false alerts. I know my Adaptive unit did one day pacing a BMW 750 sedan. I didn't realize it till later when I read about it. What say you radar wizards out there.

That's a great question. I've PM'd one of our vendors, Radar Roy, and asked him to answer for us.

It's happened to me a few times. I have an Escort 8500X50 so I don't know if the newer ones will filter those out or not.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I've used a Beltronics 965 for years and years now. Never a single ticket, saved me countless times. I did have a plain clothes officer chase me on my Aprilia rsvr for a good 10 miles until we came to a stop in a small town. Talk about pissed, this guy was irate! I called in "sick" of work that day and took to the hills. I guess I passed an unmarked sheriff's SUV at a decent clip. I thought he was a pissed off local trying to run me down, I kept hearing his downshifts and he would get close until the corners, then I would loose him. Anyway, we got to a populated area so I finally pulled over to see wtf this guy's problem was. He flew off the handle, accused me of stealing the bike, was crazy. Anyway I assume the law was on my side, no tickets.

As for the radar detector, I use a little amplifier and a peizo siren mounted under my windshield with a reset button to mute it on my left grip. You can hear it at 100+. Personally I don't like riding with headphones or anything that impacts a critical riding sense in my mind. I'll wear earplugs when eating freeway miles, but I pull them when riding Twisties or aggressively. The peizo siren is perfect for me.

New version of the Escort Max 360 has the tech to distinguish vehicle proximity warnings from genuine LEO enforcement devices - that will be my next detector to replace my 8500

Wow, that is getting pricey. But I guess it is only about 2 speeding tickets worth.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

Perhaps on old thread but.... Recently bought an Escort Max 360. Little on the heavy side but, saved me 2 tickets on recent trip up to Canada in the Porsche. Lots of warning in Oregon trooper with ka band, about 2 miles. ( you can silence K alerts which are all remote door opening at stores and such). Then in Washington trooper on bike with hand held laser gun hiding behind overpass support, only about 1/2 mile alert but enuf to slow down from 95 to 60. Again no ticket. It has free updates, community of users to alert us and yes, Bluetooth. Will set it up on bike soon. RD has already paid for itself.

Re: Which Radar Dectector?

I just bought an Adaptive Technologies radar unit (v2.0) and will let folks know how that performs versus the Escort Passport Max unit I have in my car (which is exceptional). The advantage of the former is it is designed specifically for motorcycle use (i.e., weather-proof, large top-mounted buttons, visual and sonic alerts).

Check out the new Unidens, they're pretty bad ass. I have an R1, R3 has the GPS feature for logging known false alarms. Does a good job with car sensors. Also undetectable to Spectre detector detectors. $299 for the R1. Have about 3000 miles on mine, really satisfied.

I'm loving the R1. I don't use a detector around town so the GPS features seemed wasted on me and I saved $100 over the R3.
