Inputs and Outputs
High-Efficiency Power Management: The Solo S2's
new power management circuit has been redesigned to give you the longest battery
life possible. Solo S2 uses only a fraction of the power used by conventional
corded detectors. Using 2 standard AA batteries (included), the Solo S2 provides
months of normal driving protection. A new low-battery warning circuit keeps
constant watch on the condition of the batteries, and provides you with both
audible and visual alerts before they need to be replaced. They have also added
a new AutoPower feature (programmable), which conserves battery life by
automatically turning your Solo S2 off when not in use, and can even remind you
to turn it back on once you start rolling again.
400% Better Range: The completely
redesigned Solo S2 provides long-range warning on all radar bands, including
conventional and "instant-on" X-band, K-band, and Superwide Ka-band.
Patented Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides the longest warning possible
without constant false alarms. A new waveguide antenna, a new low-powered
digital receiver, and a high-speed microprocessor with Escort's proprietary
software, all run efficiently on just two standard AA batteries. The results are
impressive, including an astonishing 400% improvement in detection range on
Ka-band over other cordless radar detectors.
Ultra-Performance Laser Detection: The Solo S2 uses multiple low-noise
laser sensors to provide long-range warning, and the widest field of view
against laser encounters.
One Step Ahead: Speed measuring devices
continue to improve through the use of new technology. Solo S2's innovative
design allows the on-board microprocessor to be reprogrammed to detect new radar
and laser units. While other manufacturers' models become obsolete, the Solo S2's
software can be updated to protect you against the latest threats.
Note: The Solo S2 must
be shipped to Escort for any reprogramming.
SmartShield VG-2 Protection: If
the VG-2 band is turned on, VG-2 units will be detected with an audible and
visual alert. Once detected, Solo S2's internal oscillator will shut down for a
period of time, making it undetectable. The oscillator will then periodically
turn back on to see if the VG-2 unit is still present.
Safety Radar Signals: Solo S2 provides
unique audible and visual alerts for Safety Warning System (SWS) signals. These
alerts (up to 64 messages) will keep you informed of road hazards in areas using
High-Resolution Graphic LCD: A
new, brilliant LCD makes the Solo S2 radar and laser detector intuitive to use,
and easy to understand. Each radar, laser and SWS signal is identified and
communicated to you with clear messages. Signal strength is provided using three
different types of meters (programmable), while the backlit display
automatically adjusts for optimum viewing.
Signal Strength Meter: The
alphanumeric graphic display provides an intuitive display of signal strength
and text messages. The standard bar-graph signal strength meter only displays
information on a single radar signal. If there are multiple signals present, the
internal computer determines which is the most important threat to show on the
ExpertMeter: Solo S2's
ExpertMeter simultaneously tracks up to 8 radar signals. It shows you detailed
information on up to 2 Ka-band, 2 K-band and 4 X-band signals.
Brightness Control: The Solo S2
provides four levels of brightness including Automatic, Minimum, Medium, Maximum
and Dark. The Automatic setting adjusts the brightness automatically based on
the ambient light in your vehicle. In the Dark mode, the display will not
provide any visual alerts when it detects a signal. Only an audible alert will
Audible Alerts: When you
encounter radar, a distinct audible alert will sound and increase in rate as the
signal gets closer. When the signal is very strong, the audible alert will blend
into a solid tone. Since laser signals are a possible threat no matter how weak,
the Solo S2 alerts you to all laser signals with a full laser alert.
AutoSensitivity Mode: The
AutoSensitivity mode provides long-range warning, while virtually eliminating
false alarms. In this mode, the Solo S2's internal computer continuously
analyzes all incoming signals and intelligently determines which signals are
Mute: The Mute button
allows you to silence the audio alert during a radar encounter.
AutoMute: After the Solo
S2 alerts you to a radar encounter at the volume you have selected, the AutoMute
feature will automatically reduce the volume to a lower level.
SmartMute: Once a specific
signal has been muted, Escort's exclusive SmartMute feature will intelligently
prioritize any additional signals by band. If a new signal is detected, and it
is a higher priority band than the muted one, the Solo S2 will alert you at the
preset volume you selected.
Low Battery Warning: Once the
batteries reach a specific voltage level, the Solo S2 will provide a low-battery
warning. This warning consists of an audible alert, along with a corresponding
AutoPower: To conserve
battery life, the Solo S2 will automatically go to "sleep" after the
vehicle has stopped moving for 30 minutes. If the vehicle starts to move within
the next 30 minutes, your Solo S2 will "wake up" and prompt you, both
visually and audibly, to see if you want it back on. If you do not press a
button within 15 seconds of the prompt, the detector will shut down completely.
Programmable Features: The Solo S2 packs
user programmable features, allowing you to customize it for your specific
driving style. Your preferred settings are stored in memory, even when you
replace batteries. You can adjust the following: Contrast, Auto Power, Power-on
Sequence, Signal Strength Meter, AutoMute, Audio Tones, City Mode Sensitivity,
Brightness and which bands are active.
SmartCord Compatible: For
12-volt operation, you can use an optional SmartCord. The SmartCord is a unique
power cord that has a power-on indicator, an alert lamp that warns you of radar
and laser, and a convenient mute button on the lighter plug.
Mounting: Using the supplied
EasyMount bracket, the Solo S2 can be mounted on your vehicle's windshield. The
EasyMount bracket has 4 position settings, allowing you to choose the position
that best fits the angle of your vehicle's windshield.
