5 of 5 Reduces Annoying False Alarms November 22, 2019
Reviewer: Phillip Stephenson from Newburgh, IN United States  
I was looking for a detector with programming to minimize false alarms caused by the new radar based safety systems on other vehicles. I had an older detector that triggered false alarms so frequently that distinguishing a real threat from a no threat was difficult. This Escort detector does very well. While some Honda systems still trip it, it is great knowing most of the warnings we receive are legitimate.
