Brightness Control
If the brightness of the unit can be conveniently adjusted and controlled, it will be listed here.
Turn-on/off Select Bands
Many radar detectors can detect many different bands of signal. This feature designates if the user can select what bands he or she has on or off.
Unit Mounting
Different radar detector are attached to the vehicle in different ways. The most common is for it to be suction-cupped to the windshield. This allows the unit to be moved from one vehicle to another with ease. Another mounting option is called remote-mounting. A remote mount unit is directly installed into your vehicle.

Other ways to mount your radar detector include Velcro and adhesive.

Suction cups
Power Source
The power source is the method in which the unit receives power. Some units will be powered by batteries, while others will need to be plugged in to an AC or DC power source.
Direct Power Accessory
If there is an optional accessory to the unit that will provide power, it will be listed here.


Number of Detected Bands
This number indicates the number of bands the radar/laser detector protects against. The term band includes different radars, lasers, and safety signals, among others. The higher the number, the greater the protection.
X Band
X Band is a frequency used for detecting speed from a police radar.
K Band
K Band is the most popular radar frequency band that is used today. It is able to detect speeds from a stand still location, or from a moving vehicle
Ka Band
Ka Band operates within the frequencies 26.5-40 GHz. This is the newest introduced radar band and it is becoming more and more popular. It rarely has a false alert.
Ku Band
Ku band ranges from 12-18 GHz when used in radar applications.
This feature specifies if the unit will detect lasers.
VG-2 Immunity
The VG-2 detects radar detectors. Radar detectors with VG-2 immunity will be immune to the VG-2 radar and alert the driver when they are under such surveillance.
Pop Alert
Some radar guns operate in a POP mode so they can get a speed reading of a target vehicle extremely fast, resulting in most radar detectors not being able to consistently signal an alert. There are very few radar guns in service in the U.S. capable of POP mode operation. If your radar detector is Pop Alert capable, you may notice an increase in Ka-band false alerts when POP mode radar detection is switched on.

Love it !

June 6, 2013

I would recommed this radar detector. Love not having a cord in the way. If you forget to turn it off, it shuts itself off after awhile, plenty of alert time when batteries are getting low. Nice.

Escort Solo S2 is a Great Buy at Sonic

September 17, 2013

I have really enjoyed my Escort Solo S2. About a year ago I purchased a 370Z and I needed a way to watch out for speed traps along my long way to and from work. The S2 works great. I typically get about a half mile of warning. Plenty of time for me to bring down the speed and let all those fools not using an Escort fly by me into the upcoming speed trap . I also
like that the Escort displays the signal intensity so I can determine how close the threat happens to be. It's a nice piece of equipment and I have been very happy with it. I use it not only in my "Z" but also on the weekends when I have my family with me, not so much because I want to go fast but just because I have gotten use to wanting to know where radar is being used. My Escort uses batteries and I never leave it in a hot car because I want the electronics inside to last for years. Sonics Price on this Radar Detector was the lowest.
