Escort Solo S3 Cordless Radar Detector

New for 2001 Escort has updated the Solo S2 with the new and improved Solo S3 Radar Detector. Never again must you choose between convenience and performance. The revolutionary cordless Escort Solo S3 radar and laser detector creates the most powerful combination of long range performance, and convenient battery operation ever - it's simply amazing! No other cordless detector provides the portable convenience and protection of the Solo S3 radar and laser detector. It's easy to own and operate. No more cords - just stick it to the windshield, turn it on, and you're ready to go. The Solo S3 is ideal for the person who is constantly in and out of different vehicles or anyone that just wants the convenience of a battery operated radar detector. Hands down the Escort Solo S2 is the best cordless radar detector ever made.

Cordless Convenience - Never again must you choose between convenience and performance. The revolutionary Escort Solo S3 creates the most powerful combination of long range performance, and convenient battery operation ever - it's simply amazing!

High-Efficiency Battery Design - SOLO S3 uses only a fraction of the power used by conventional corded detectors. Using 2 standard (AA) batteries (included), the SOLO S3 provides months of normal driving protection. A new low-battery warning circuit keeps constant watch on the condition of the batteries, and provides you with both audible and visual alerts before they need to be replaced. A new AutoPower feature (programmable) automatically turns the SOLO S3 off to conserve battery life.

Long-Range Radar Protection - The redesigned SOLO S3 provides long-range warning on all radar bands including conventional and "instant-on" X-band, K-band, and Superwide Ka-band. Patented Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides the longest warning possible without constant false alarms.

Ultra-Performance Laser Protection - The SOLO S3 uses multiple low-noise laser sensors to provide long-range warning and the widest field of view against laser encounters.

Programmable Features - SOLO S3 packs 9-user programmable features, allowing you to customize it for your specific driving style. Your preferred settings are stored in memory, even when you replace SOLO S3's batteries. Or, simply use SOLO S3's factory settings, allowing you to just turn it on and go.

High-Resolution Graphic Display - A new brilliant OLED display makes the SOLO S3 intuitive to use and easy to understand. Each radar, laser or SWS signal is identified and communicated to you with clear messages. Signal strength is provided using two types of meters (programmable) which include Standard Bar-graph and ExpertMeter.

Safety Radar Signals - SOLO S3 provides unique audible and visual alerts for Safety Warning Systems (SWS) signals. These alerts, (up to 64 messages) will keep you informed of road hazards in areas using this technology.

Comes Fully Equipped - The Cordless SOLO S3 comes ready to drive with a comprehensive Owner's Manual, adjustable quick-release windshield mount, travel case and a set of AA batteries. Limited One Year Warranty.

My Solo S3 Review
In my profession I am in and out of rental cars daily and a corded detector can me an inconvenience at times. In my personal vehicle I own the Escort 9500ix and its a great detector. For Travel I use the Solo S3 and its performance is very good for a cordless detector. I rate this 4 stars because my 9500ix has better performance but it is definately the best cordless unit I have ever used.
