The Solo S3 is the newest cordless detector from Escort, a company known for producing high performance radar detectors. The previous model, the Escort Solo S2, was the best cordless radar detector that you could buy, so we are expecting great things from the new S3 model.
The standout feature of the Solo S3 is its ability to run on two AA batteries. The S3 uses only a fraction of the power used by corded detectors and will last months on a single set of batteries. The new AutoPower feature automatically turns the device off to conserve battery life when it doesn’t sense any movement of the car.
The Solo S3 provides upgraded performance from the previous S2 model with longer range warnings on all police radar bands. Escort’s patented digital signal processing provides the longest warnings with fewer false alerts.
Another new feature on this model is the organic LED screen that provides a high resolution description of all radar and laser alerts including the standard Adana Escort bar graph display and the ExpertMeter display. The ExpertMeter display can show the signal strength of 2 Ka, 2 K, and 4 X-band signals all at once. The screen will turn off to save battery when no alerts are present. This also helps keep your radar detector discreet so no one else will know you have it.
The Solo S3 is capable of displaying safety warning system information. These alerts will keep you aware of road hazards such as accidents.
The detector comes loaded with everything you need to get started so you can just put it in your car and turn it on:
- Radar detector
- Owner’s Manual
- Windshield Mount
- Travel Case
- One set of AA batteries
For advanced users, the Solo S3 provides 9 programmable features including different power on indicators, AutoPower, power on sequences, signal strength meters, AutoMute, audio tones, city mode, brightness control, dark mode, and the ability to enable or disable certain radar bands.
The Solo S3 is great for travelers who need to swap it from rental car to rental car, and even back into their own car when they return. There are no wires to attach or detach and it comes with a travel case so it won’t get damaged in your luggage.
