Works great! Auto lockout feature is convenient especially if you drive similar routes around town on a regular basis. Low profile compared to other models I looked at.

I have been using the Max 3 now for a few weeks and rarely falses. The only gripe I have is that Escort does not include the mini-usb cable, which is required to update the firmware on the detector.

Replaced my 13 y/o Escort Passport 8500 x50 - very happy so far, but make sure you upgrade your firmware if you plan to take advantage of auto mode (auto is virtually unusable until you do). Chose this over the options with directionality because of the improved range and BSM/false filtering capabilities with this model. Also, I don't mind having to bring it inside to perform the firmware updates. Functionality with the Escort iOS app is good, but would love to see Escort provide an Apple CarPlay integration to make that even better. Suction cup is much sturdier than the old models and the magnet attachment works quite well.
Pros: Range, BSM filtering, magnet mount, GPS, app integration
Cons: Auto mode unusable out of the box - must update firmware first
