Escort Solo S3 Radar Detector Review


Overall Rating 35 Points


Overview of the Escort Solo S3 Radar Detector


Radar Roy rated the Escort Solo S3 as being the best cordless radar detector in the world, providing you with two times the capture distance of a police K and Ka radar gun.

The Escort Solo S3 offers 360-degree protection and detects X, K and Ka radar signals.

But when compared to the performance of other radar detectors in the same price category as the Escort Solo S3, it just doesn’t measure up, and here is why.

The Escort Solo S3 is a battery operated radar detector; therefore it is designed with low power consumption components.

Because of this the overall performance is compromised.

Therefore unless you absolutely need a cordless radar detector, don’t buy one!

One reason Radar Roy hears quite often from customers wanting a cordless radar detector is that they don’t want ugly power cables hanging down from their windshield.

Because of this Roy put together this 8-minute video that will walk you through the process of hard wiring a radar detector to your fuse box.

Radar Detection Range – 3 Points


The Escort Solo S3 has the best range and performance in the cordless radar detector class and is ranked in the 2-star category as having two times the range of a police K and Ka constant on radar gun.

This level of performance is adequate for constant on encounters but may not be sufficient in an instant on encounter.

Sensitivity and Filtering – 6 Points


The filtering of the Escort Solo S3 is good, however this maybe a caused by the low sensitivity of the detector. You will get some false alerts however you’re not going to bombarded with them as you would with a cheaper detector.

Clear Tone Alerts – 5 Points


The Escort Solo S3 has distinguishable audible tone alerts, providing you with the information you need without having to take your eyes off the road.

OLED Display – 5 Points


The Escort Solo S3 displays radar alerts using an OLED display. However, the display can be difficult to read in bright sunlight.

Easy Advanced Programming – 5 Points


You program your Solo S3 by pressing the buttons on your detector, adjusting the brightness, programming the radar bands used in your area, adjust the filtering options, and more.

Warranty & Support – 10 Points


The Escort Solo S3 comes with Escort’s 1-year warranty and Radar Roy’s 30-day no risk money back guarantee.

And because RadarBusters has been an authorized Escort dealer since 1995, you’re automatically qualified to purchase Escort’s extended 1-year service plan for only $29.95

Also here on RadarBusters Radar Roy has several articles in his help guide section to assist you in getting the most out of your detector such as: How to Maximize the Use of your Radar Detector, How to Update Your Radar Detector, and Defensive Driving Tips for Radar Detector Users.

You’re also welcome to contact Radar Roy direct 24/7 by using the contact form on this website or calling our toll free number during normal business hours.

Included Accessories


The Solo S3 radar detector includes the detector, smart cord power cord, a windshield mount and reference guide.

Optional Accessories


An optional accessory you may want to consider when purchasing your Solo S3 is:

SmartCord: Batteries die, because of this you may want to consider purchasing a SmartCord to plug in your detector.

Now one FAQ that Roy is often asked is if you plug in the Escort Solo S3 will the performance increase? The answer is no, because the circuitry inside of the detector is designed for battery use.
