How New Car Technology Is Forcing Radar Detectors to be More Accurate

Ron Gividen, Escort's PR and marketing director, explained to me that each car manufacturer's sensor systems have a unique "fingerprint." The latest Escort processing technology in the Max2 seeks to take in a signal and see if matches up to any of those known fingerprints. If the detector realizes that the signal is coming from, say, a Mercedes, the detector won't go off. If it does detect a legitimate signal, the Max2 issues a warning and uses new directional cues to tell you where the signal is coming from.

But, according to Gividen, the war goes on. "Even Honda is coming out with new radar-based sensors, so it's a constant battle to identify those new systems," he says.
