I think it's usually down to the Valentine One and one of the Escorts. Don't own one....yet. Waze does a decent job.

I've got the Escort Max 360 with GPS, I like the way it blocks out the routine bad signals so that when it goes off, I know its the real deal

I have the V1 and the Max on different cars. I think I vote Max. Both are winners though.

I've been using the Escort Passport series since 2000, only got one ticket back in 2014 driving from Colorado to Texas (I was being careless).

I drove around with both the Passport and V1 and I preferred the escort since you can see multiple signals at once. The new Escorts have directional signaling like the V1 now, but I have not used it yet...

I have an Escort Redline which I love. It is extremely sensitive which is a good thing. Combine with the Escort Live app, false alarms are filtered out. Escort Live does not have as many users as Waze contributing to the "just saw a cop", but the report button is easy to use and social information from other drivers has saved me a number of times.

Wife and I both have the Escort Max. She uses the suction cup mount and i use the stealth mirror mount. Very accurate and pick up signals at very long distance.

escort max 360 here, with mirror mount. I'm concerned that the camera in the ZL1 mirror will be partially blocked by the mount. But, I won't know until I get the car...
