According to Escort, the MAX Ci is the best, most advanced detection system for the ultimate in driver alert and ticket protection on the planet. Designed to be seamlessly integrated into the vehicle, it features front radar detection as well as front laser shifters that protect drivers against all speed monitoring devices.
Completely redesigned, the new ESCORT MAX Ci gives you smaller, more powerful laser shifters that defeat the latest in laser-based speed detection technology along with updatable IVT™ filters that reject false alerts from the latest in-motion vehicle safety systems like collision avoidance and lane departure systems. The new MAX Ci also includes GPS and Bluetooth® for connectivity to the ESCORT Live Community and the DEFENDER® database of red light & speed camera locations.
MAX Ci is only available in New Zealand from certified installation experts. We can recommend installers in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
The ESCORT MAX Ci’s “Mark Location” feature enables the customer to manually mark known speed traps, camera locations, or anything else worth noting. Once stored in its memory, the MAX Ci will provide sufficient warning for all of these points of interest.
MAX Ci’s miniature display provides a multitude of installation options, including an in-dash bezel (included) for that factory installed look. Easy-to-read alerts and access to user preferences are clearly visible at a glance.
The ESCORT MAX Ci can be easily updated using your computer and internet. Simply go online to download our Detector Tools program, connect the MAX Ci to a PC with an active internet connection. You can even back up your data or update the detector’s operating software (firmware) if needed.
Note: Not Mac compatible at this time.
AutoLearn uses GPS technology to automatically “learn” (by exact location and frequency) each radar signal and determine if it’s a real threat or not. This data is updated real-time during your drive and provides the most accurate alert system possible. The result is the most accurate long-range protection in the industry and a permanent solution to false alarms. You drive. It learns. End of story. Nothing could be easier.
