The new Solo S3™ is an advanced design and technology successor to the industry acclaimed cordless performance leader, the Solo S2™. “Our new Solo S3™ features a sleek new look, improved long range performance, and a new brilliant, high-contrast OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display. Our cordless models, beginning with the original Solo and all the way up to the Solo S2, have always led the industry in performance for cordless protection – now the Solo S3™ continues that long-standing tradition by establishing another new standard,” said Dave Smidebush, ESCORT Vice-president of Marketing.
“We look forward to participating at TAWA where we have direct access to automotive writers and media outlets who present their stories to one of the world’s largest automotive markets. Our goal is to help them communicate advanced driving solutions for their readers,” said Ron Gividen, ESCORT’s PR/Media Manager. “We have products that help protect drivers from being targeted and ticketed but the big news is our new PASSPORT iQ™ which features multiple added levels of information such as GPS navigation, turn-by-turn directions, speed limit information and alerts when the speed limit changes, all integrated into one convenient device,” he added.
The World’s First Internet Ready, GPS-based Radar Detector:
Category leader ESCORT developed the world’s first internet ready, GPS based radar detector the PASSPORT 9500ix windshield mount radar, laser and safety camera detector. With the 9500ix release, ESCORT set a new technology standard by introducing its patented TrueLock™ feature. TrueLock™ uses GPS technology to eliminate false alerts by indexing their exact location and frequency. In conjunction with TrueLock™, the PASSPORT 9500ix's AutoLearn™ feature automatically analyzes incoming signals and automatically locks them out to prevent false alerts. And the 9500ix radar detector also address the single fastest growing threat drivers face today - the increasing numbers of fixed position speed and red light cameras by incorporating the ESCORT Defender™ database, which identifies these threats well in advance.
In addition to its class-leading performance against radar and laser guns, the 9500ix also features variable speed sensitivity, which regulates the detector’s sensitivity based on the speed of the vehicle. This level of intelligence provides maximum performance when you need it most, and reduces unneeded alerts when the driver is not at risk. The 9500ix is also compatible with the ESCORT Laser Shifter ZR4, which provides the ultimate laser protection.
