I drove with one over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised how well it did, particularly with police laser.

In fact I had a Solo S4 encounter against a Maryland state trooper in a construction zone, where I manage to vanquish the attempt to get my speed.

I have a video, I am going to post and you can clearly see on the officer's face the confusion as I was stared down as I passed her.

She was using a Kustom Pro Laser 4.

The Solo S4 sort of reminds me of the original small Passport introduced in the early eighties. I got a little nostalgic driving with it.

Here's the video of the encounter, I mentioned in my previous post.

I had been driving this past weekend, on occasion, with a number of detectors side-by-side (not for radar) to test for sensitivity to police laser.

I was thrilled to see that the Solo S4 had alerted.

This was good, because in MD, fines are doubled in construction zones, even when they are not active.

When I was initially targeted, the officer wasn't even in sight. Very tough ambush, indeed.

Anyone who suggests that having a detector that detects laser well is not important doesn't know what they're talking about. Having a good laser detector is always important, otherwise how could you even know that you were being targeted until you passed the officer (when it would definitely be too late). I was pleasantly surprised to see that Escort has made the Solo S4 a very good laser detector, as well.



I've got another SAVE videoed with a new Escort Redline EX, that I'll post.

Just posted an intro/overview video of the S4 and will be adding real-world experience videos, shortly.

These should give you a pretty fair idea of what to expect from the S4.
