product thumbnail
Street smart. Consuming less power than traditional corded detectors, the Solo S3 radar detector helps keep drivers in the know with a windshield-friendly cordless design. It also conveniently alerts you before the batteries need to be replaced.

The detector delivers long-range warning on radar bands--standard and instant-on X-band, K-band, and Superwide Ka-band included--so you can drive with confidence. Plus, you'll be clued in to local road hazards, thanks to alerts for Safety Warning Systems signals. From Escort.

Escort Solo S3 Windshield Radar Detector is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever Solo! My husband would never have another brand of radar detector. This is our third one and it's the best yet. We always buy from QVC as they have the best prices with the extras included.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as corded models Cordless radar detectors not as good as most corded radar detectors, Solo S3 has about the same range as my Solo S2. You can watch videos on YouTube on detection range it's a lot less than most corded models and could be the difference from a close call to getting a speeding ticket especially when Ka radar being used. Best dash mounted corded radar detector? Escort Redline.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THE SOLO S3 (read if you're thinking about it) Let me start by saying I've been a long time fan of Escort. This being said DO NOT BUY THIS RADAR DETECTOR. I owned an 8500x50 for 3 years and loved it. Car was recently broken into and my Escort stolen, so figured I would buy a cordless to replace. The Solo is complete garbage. Terrible range (at times it goes off after I see the cop car) and the amount of false alerts while driving through towns is unbearable. I used the Solo for ~ a month and it's apparent it's worthless. I'm shopping for replacements - likely moving fwd with the ValentineOne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Radar Detector I had the Solo S2 and couldn't wait to get my S3 and have been pleased with the ease of moving from one car to another. I traded in my S2 for my S3 that I've used since it was released to the market. The suction cups do have a bit of trouble adhering to a cold windshield but overall, I would repeat buy this product. I cannot wait till the S4 is released.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Reliable We've used Escorts in all our cars for many years. The cordless feature is the best. You have no visible cord dangling off your dash. I even bought one for my mother-in-law for Christmas last year. They are like your cell phone, once you get attached to it you never go anywhere without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always does it's job perfectly I have had everything from the very first original (big box) "escort" detector to the 8500 xi. My preferred detector has been and remains to be the Solo S3 due to the fact it's wireless. I have run the wire under the winshield pillar post trim and headliner, up under the dash, etc. on the hard-wired models but some vehicles are less accomodating to this scenario. I have had a Solo now for about 20 years or so and it still works perfectly. I just purchased a new one for our new Colorado as hard-wiring the 8500 I had would not have been real accomodating. The portability allows it to be easily placed in service loaner, rental vehicles too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These features are geat and identical to the other Solo... For some reason, the laser alert goes off quite often, especially in constructin areas. The other Solo S3 that we've had for a couple of years does not alert in these same areas. Either the older S3 is insensitive to these lasers or the newer S3 is extremely sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second one I had a solo 2 for 14 years and the LED final quit working. The radar detection worked but no screen info. I use on my Harley and in my truck. Love it.
