About the Escort Maestro Portable Detector Kit

Get in-dash info from your Escort radar detector

A radar detector's a convenient way to get advance warning about upcoming potential unpleasantness. But if you've already grown used to glancing at your radio on occasion for your maps, music, and road-friendly apps, you might not pay as much attention to your detector and miss something important. This handy kit from Escort lets you see the key info from your Escort windshield radar detector on the screen of your compatible Kenwood or JVC touchscreen receiver with Apple CarPlay® compatibility. You'll need to have an iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR2 interface connected to your stereo as well.

A radar detector's a convenient way to get advance warning about upcoming potential unpleasantness. But if you've already grown used to glancing at your radio on occasion for your maps, music, and road-friendly apps, you might not pay as much attention to your detector and miss something important. This handy kit from Escort lets you see the key info from your Escort windshield radar detector on the screen of your compatible Kenwood or JVC touchscreen receiver with Apple CarPlay® compatibility. You'll need to have an iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR2 interface connected to your stereo as well.

The kit features a pair of 10' wires, both of which connect between the detector and your Maestro interface. Once connected, you'll be able to see valuable information on your Kenwood or JVC radio like your current speed and the radar band detected. You'll also get audible alerts over your car's speakers.

Note: This kit only works with select Escort radar detectors (see "Details" for compatible models) and with the newer iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR2 interface and compatible stereos — it will not work with the original (pre-2019) iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR interface.

More details on the Escort Maestro Portable Detector Kit

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Escort/Maestro Portable Detector Kit lets you connect your Escort Max 3, Max 360c, or Redline 360c radar detector to your Maestro ADSMRR2 radio interface when using a compatible Kenwood/JVC iDatalink ready radio with CarPlay (radio, MRR2, and radar detector sold separately). Once connected, radar alerts will come through the sound system and an on-screen "Escort" page will display both the Band and MPH when alerted.

Connection: The connection kit includes two 10' cables, one with an RJ-25 modular plug on one end and a green 4-pin plug on the other end, and one with black 6-pin connector on one end and a 3.5mm plug on the other. The RJ-25 and 3.5mm connectors plug into the Escort Max 360c while the other ends plug into the Maestro MRR2 module. This provides both power for the radar detector as well as a signal connection.

Maestro Compatibility: The Portable Detector Kit can only be used with a Maestro MRR2 interface module, and is not compatible with older MRR interfaces.

Radio Compatibility: The Escort/Maestro Portable Detector Kit can be used with any Kenwood or JVC iDatalink ready radio that supports CarPlay.

Q
Does the radar play sound thru the stereo? I have the RR2, a Kenwood DXR1007XR, and a Escort Redline 360C. It's working with the stereo, but I have no sound. The mic cable is plugged in...
[ Nathan  May 20, 2021 ]
8 answers
A
No it does not play! I spoke with a Maestro technician and they haven't been able to make the sound work correctly.
[ Roger M  Jul 25, 2021 ]
A
I really don't know. I was told, and maestro configured it, to work with my Kenwood receiver but after spending a good amount of money I found out the 360C and all of them with the exception of the $1800 and $2400 won't work with the id dataport. So your 360C is still a portable radar detector, my understanding. I returned all of what I could.
[ Bob R.  Jun 20, 2021 ]
A
Hi Nathan- The radar will play sound it's not real loud through the speakers. The mic cable does not need to be plugged in at all. I have a KENWOOD radio with an RR2 and a Redline 360c. I would make sure you flashed your RR2 with the web link desktop app as it is the only way to select the Redline 360c. A few other things to check are you on the must recent firmware with your Redline 360c I believe needs to be 1.7 or higher. Also, make sure you change your detector to interface 2 mode. I hope it helps. Brian
[ BRIAN  Jun 18, 2021 ]

I have not installed mine yet
[ joey  Jun 18, 2021 ]
A
It doesn't work correctly with my redline 360c.
[ PERRY  Jun 18, 2021 ]
A
Don't plug in the mic as far as I've been told it will work then and your radar detector has a setting to but it into output 2 or something and it should work then
[ Nick  Jun 18, 2021 ]
A
It does play sound thru the head unit, if the radar is working on screen in sync with the display on the radar then I would say look thru the settings on the rr2 for the radar and mess around. There's alot to take in and I still don't know all of it but it does work just look through everything setting wise. Hope this helps
[ CODY  Jun 18, 2021 ]
A
Right now mine just comes on the screen no sound I think there's a setting that I've been too lazy to find to play the ordinary radar sound. I do miss the sound I hope there's a way to have the radar sound I don't like just having a visual.
[ ALAN F  Jun 18, 2021 ]
Q
Hello, I have a Pioneer DMH-WC6600 NEX with MRR2 and TO3 (all working fine). I am buying a Escort Max 3 to connect with MRR2. Do I need this cable/adapter?
[ SanD12  May 17, 2021 ]
4 answers
A
Yes but I'm not sure if the Max 3 is a detector that will work with the RR2. I know the 360c will. But if it is a listed one then yes you will need this. Good luck.
[ Nick  Jul 25, 2021 ]
A
I have a KENWOOD dmx1057 and a Maestro installed and if you want the radar to display on the screen and be able to control the Detector from the screen then you will need the cables. On my particular set up the only way that the maestro would talk to the detector is if it was the escort passport max 360c. I had to do some research into if the tuner and the detector would be able to read each other. I would suggest that anyone who is looking into this do the same. I can say that I am very happy with the set up that I have. When the detector reads a signal then it mutes the radio so that if you're not paying attention you will be alerted and I particularly like that. But you can configure it many different ways. I hope that this information helps anyone looking into doing this Particular set up.
[ Roger M  Jul 25, 2021 ]
A
Yes you'll need the cable. I was sorely disappointed when I had finally had all my stuff wired up and then didn't have the cable.
[ PATRICK  Jul 24, 2021 ]
A
You need an Escort 360c, 360 Redline C, anything with a C that are the connected radars will work.
[ ROBERT  Jul 24, 2021 ]
Q
not so much a question. This harness will work with the RR and the RR2 with the Escort Redline 360C. According to the Idatalink website and a conformation email to Idata that confirmed this info. So this harness is not just for the RR2?

All of our research shows that the Escort Maestro Portable Detector Kit will only work the the MRR2. We reached out to Idatalink to make sure this was correct and they confirmed that it is. We apologize if there was any confusion.
[ Allison  May 10, 2021 ]  Staff
A
As far as I know it is for both RR and RR2 but it only works for a few detectors for the RR and the Redline is not one of them, I bought an RR first and was upset when the firmware for the Redline wasn't there even though iData mentions it.It has 4 detectors for the RR2 so far with Redline being one of the added ones. I've used mine in conjunction with the RR2 for almost 2 weeks now and it's awesome!

I have dnr876s. Will this cord work with any escort brand detector?
[ Larry  Nov 29, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
The DNR876s is iDatalink Maestro compatible so, yes it will display the detector info. You must use an iDatalink RR2 vehicle interface and have a compatible Escort model, I think the Escort MAX 3 is the first model that is compatible. This cable connects the detector to the RR2 and the RR2 has a serial data connection to the DNR876s.
[ JAMES  Dec 04, 2020 ]
Q
These cables do not work for me. I flashed my rr2, and included my max360c as the extra, and when plugged in, it goes straight to â??Laserâ?? and all four light turn on and red. What am I doing wrong? Kenwood is a ddx376BT. Going to try updating it. Detector is updated.
[ Patrick  Sep 24, 2020 ]

You have to go into the detector and change the input setting it is super easy. I simply called escort and there tech walked me right thru it.

Update: Didn't have the green pin plug plugged into the pink slot on my rr2. Also didn't have the detector in interface mode 2. Not showing "Laser" constantly anymore, but still, the radar button on the screen is not clickable.

For one the wiring diagram idatalink made tells you to plug it into the wrong port on the rr2 I'd have to look at it again but it shows it being plugged into the red port and the cables plug is green. it needs to go into the green port on the rr2 even though the diagram very specifically shows it being plugged into the red port on the rr2. Also you have to connect your max360c to WiFi and go through the settings and do an update via WiFi even if you just updated it connected to your computer. Then you have to go and change the connection setting on the radar to interface mode 2.
[ NICHOLAS C  Sep 24, 2020 ]
A
You need to make sure the detector is is set to communication Mode 2, Mode 1 is for use with Escort accessories. If you still have problems you should give iDatalink a call. They can make an updated RR2 firmware if needed.

These cables do not work for me. I flashed my rr2, and included my max360c as the extra, and when plugged in, it goes straight to â??Laserâ?? and all four light turn on and red. What am I doing wrong? Kenwood is a ddx376BT. Going to try updating it. Detector is updated.

You have to go into the detector and change the input setting it is super easy. I simply called escort and there tech walked me right thru it.

Update: Didn't have the green pin plug plugged into the pink slot on my rr2. Also didn't have the detector in interface mode 2. Not showing "Laser" constantly anymore, but still, the radar button on the screen is not clickable.

For one the wiring diagram idatalink made tells you to plug it into the wrong port on the rr2 I'd have to look at it again but it shows it being plugged into the red port and the cables plug is green. it needs to go into the green port on the rr2 even though the diagram very specifically shows it being plugged into the red port on the rr2. Also you have to connect your max360c to WiFi and go through the settings and do an update via WiFi even if you just updated it connected to your computer. Then you have to go and change the connection setting on the radar to interface mode 2.

You need to make sure the detector is is set to communication Mode 2, Mode 1 is for use with Escort accessories. If you still have problems you should give iDatalink a call. They can make an updated RR2 firmware if needed.

Does the radar play sound thru the stereo? I have the RR2, a Kenwood DXR1007XR, and a Escort Redline 360C. It's working with the stereo, but I have no sound. The mic cable is plugged in...

No it does not play! I spoke with a Maestro technician and they haven't been able to make the sound work correctly.
[ Roger M  Jul 25, 2021 ]

I really don't know. I was told, and maestro configured it, to work with my Kenwood receiver but after spending a good amount of money I found out the 360C and all of them with the exception of the $1800 and $2400 won't work with the id dataport. So your 360C is still a portable radar detector, my understanding. I returned all of what I could.

Hi Nathan- The radar will play sound it's not real loud through the speakers. The mic cable does not need to be plugged in at all. I have a KENWOOD radio with an RR2 and a Redline 360c. I would make sure you flashed your RR2 with the web link desktop app as it is the only way to select the Redline 360c. A few other things to check are you on the must recent firmware with your Redline 360c I believe needs to be 1.7 or higher. Also, make sure you change your detector to interface 2 mode. I hope it helps. Brian

Don't plug in the mic as far as I've been told it will work then and your radar detector has a setting to but it into output 2 or something and it should work then
[ Nick  Jun 18, 2021 ]

It does play sound thru the head unit, if the radar is working on screen in sync with the display on the radar then I would say look thru the settings on the rr2 for the radar and mess around. There's alot to take in and I still don't know all of it but it does work just look through everything setting wise. Hope this helps
[ CODY  Jun 18, 2021 ]

Right now mine just comes on the screen no sound I think there's a setting that I've been too lazy to find to play the ordinary radar sound. I do miss the sound I hope there's a way to have the radar sound I don't like just having a visual.

Hello, I have a Pioneer DMH-WC6600 NEX with MRR2 and TO3 (all working fine). I am buying a Escort Max 3 to connect with MRR2. Do I need this cable/adapter?
[ SanD12  May 17, 2021 ]

A
Yes but I'm not sure if the Max 3 is a detector that will work with the RR2. I know the 360c will. But if it is a listed one then yes you will need this. Good luck.

I have a KENWOOD dmx1057 and a Maestro installed and if you want the radar to display on the screen and be able to control the Detector from the screen then you will need the cables. On my particular set up the only way that the maestro would talk to the detector is if it was the escort passport max 360c. I had to do some research into if the tuner and the detector would be able to read each other. I would suggest that anyone who is looking into this do the same. I can say that I am very happy with the set up that I have. When the detector reads a signal then it mutes the radio so that if you're not paying attention you will be alerted and I particularly like that. But you can configure it many different ways. I hope that this information helps anyone looking into doing this Particular set up.
[ Roger M  Jul 25, 2021 ]

Yes you'll need the cable. I was sorely disappointed when I had finally had all my stuff wired up and then didn't have the cable.
[ PATRICK  Jul 24, 2021 ]

You need an Escort 360c, 360 Redline C, anything with a C that are the connected radars will work.

not so much a question. This harness will work with the RR and the RR2 with the Escort Redline 360C. According to the Idatalink website and a conformation email to Idata that confirmed this info. So this harness is not just for the RR2?

Escort is only compatible with the rr2
[ Nick  Jul 25, 2021 ]

All of our research shows that the Escort Maestro Portable Detector Kit will only work the the MRR2. We reached out to Idatalink to make sure this was correct and they confirmed that it is. We apologize if there was any confusion.
[ Allison  May 10, 2021 ]  Staff

As far as I know it is for both RR and RR2 but it only works for a few detectors for the RR and the Redline is not one of them, I bought an RR first and was upset when the firmware for the Redline wasn't there even though iData mentions it.It has 4 detectors for the RR2 so far with Redline being one of the added ones. I've used mine in conjunction with the RR2 for almost 2 weeks now and it's awesome!

Q
I have dnr876s. Will this cord work with any escort brand detector?
[ Larry  Nov 29, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
The DNR876s is iDatalink Maestro compatible so, yes it will display the detector info. You must use an iDatalink RR2 vehicle interface and have a compatible Escort model, I think the Escort MAX 3 is the first model that is compatible. This cable connects the detector to the RR2 and the RR2 has a serial data connection to the DNR876s.
