What is included with MAX 3?
MAX 3 comes complete with a soft-sided travel case, NEW EZ Mag Mount windshield mount, 12-volt SmartCord® USB and quick reference guide. If you would like a more permanent installation for your MAX 3, check out the DirectWire SmartCord® or the more basic DirectWire kit for hardwired installations.
Do you offer an earphone option?
Yes; older models require a mono earphone. Most current models have a stereo jack.
How do you mark a location?
To mark a particular location, press the "MRK" button. The display will read: "Mark?" Press the "MRK" button again to assign a label to it. There are four (4) labels: Red Light, Speed Camera, Speed Trap and Other. To scroll through the labels, simply press the volume (+) or (-) buttons until you reach the desired label. Once you've selected the label, press the "MRK" button again to confirm.
How do you block a false alert?
To lockout a false alert, (X, K or Laser only) press the mute button three (3) times, (either on the detector or the SmartCord®) during the alert. Pressing the mute button the first time will silence the audio. Pressing it a second time will generate a prompt on the display that will read: "Lockout?" Press it a third time to confirm that you want to lock this signal out by location and frequency. A "Stored" message will be displayed.
Is the 12V SmartCord required to power an ESCORT premium radar compatible with BMW models?
Yes, the SmartCord is compatible with your BMW, but might require a Standard Female Hella0(DIN) socket to Cigarette lighter type Socket adapter.
Escort Max 3 exceeded my expectations.
Purchased Max 3 and M1 together. Love them!
I upgraded from a 9500Ix which I had owned for a decade. That was a great detector, it's only drawback was the lack of IVT filtering - so in addition to being amazing at detecting cops, it had sadly become amazing at detecting any new Honda or Acura as well. The Max 3 is the perfect modernization. Firstly, IVT is amazing and the new car false alert issue is gone. I like the modernized interface and digital screen a lot better, it's much easier to read. There are other little updates that are nice like the flawless magnetic window mount and the USB port on the smart cable. Lastly, the detector's ability to interface with Escort Live, and work in conjunction with the app in real-time truly takes this to the next level. You don't buy one of these unless you are passionate about driving, and it's clear that Escort has put decades of passion into the Max 3.
