The Escort Solo S2 Cordless is a portable laser and radar detector that provides protection and convenience user without the need to use the power cord. With its compact design, the device is powered by two AA batteries and equipped with a motion sensor that automatically powers the unit off if the vehicle has not moved for 25 minutes. It is a laser and radar detector that responds to the X-Band, K-Band, and Ka-Band radar guns and also features Laser Eye 360° Detection system with detection diodes for laser detection. It is also designed with Advanced Digital Signal Processing (ADSP), Patented Escort Technology and also invisible to VG-2 radar detectors.
The Escort Solo S2 is an advance and sophisticated cordless radar and laser detector developed using Escort’s technology. It has indicator for responding to X-Band (10.525 GHz more or less 25 MHz), K-Band (24.150 GHz more or less 100 MHz) and Ka-Band (34.700 GHz more or less 1300 MHz) radar guns. It is fitted with Super heterodyne receiver, GaAs FET VCO, Scanning Frequency Discriminator, Advanced Digital Signal Processing (ADSP), 4-Bit Analogue-to-Digital Converter and separate alarms for laser and radar bands to give warning to user of the use of radar and laser monitoring system. Apart from that, the ADSP also provides maximum range, with minimum false alarms. It provides distinct visual, audio alerts and flashes a warning indicator to user of the presence of X-Band, K-Band, Ka-Band radar signals as well as IR laser (904nm, 33 MHz Bandwidth) signals. With a Signal Strength Meter, the device gives weak signals causing the audio and visual alarms to activate intermittently, but it gets stronger when you are closer to the radar gun where both alarms will increase its intensity. The device is also designed with a VG-2 Immunity system that makes it undetectable to VG-2 radar detector and giving out warnings if it is being use and also shut down the unit's oscillator. The Solo S2 comes with a Laser Eye 360° Detection System called LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) which provides laser protection from all directions. It also has Quantum Limited Video Receiver and Multiple Laser Sensor Diodes for improved Laser performance of the device. Besides that, it comes with 10 easy to use Programmable features for setting the Power-On Indication, Auto-Power (for On or Off), Power-On Sequence, Signal Strength Meter, AutoMute (for On or Off), Audio Tones, City Mode (for selection of Auto, City or Highway), Brightness Control, Dark Mode and Bands (On or Off). The Bands setting is used for disabling detection of selected bands and VG-2 device plus it also has expert mode settings which allow user to get constant picture of the intensity of all the radar bands in the area. The device also has the AutoSensitivity mode function that increases the detection range and virtually helps eliminates false alarms while driving especially in the city area. Other feature includes a high-efficiency power management that maximizes the battery life, AutoMute feature that automatically lowers the volume of an alert after a period of time, high resolution graphic LCD Display for easy readout of messages and a LED back-light plus it mounts easily on windshield or dashboard. The Solo S2 comes with built-in earphone jack and also optional Escort’s SmartCord which is a 12-volt cigarette-lighter power cord that includes LED alert for radar/laser as well as a mute button. It also comes with quick release windshield suction cup mount, plug-and-play compatible with Escort’s ZR3 laser jamming system for added protection plus a hard clamshell-style travel case. The Solo S2 measures in at 5.25-inch (13.3cm) in depth, 1.16-inch (2.9cm) in height and 2.90-inch (7.4cm) in width.See less

Does the Solo S@ have the VG2 coverage so your radar detector is not detected by police?

I have one of these and I'm very unimpressed. The warnings are far too late, seemingly only to alert me when in visible range (not much use). Surely there is enough radar spray for a decent detector to pick up the signal before visuals. I've even tested this by 1) approaching those trailered roadside speed readers, and 2) by walking walking around a police cruiser left in a parking outside a coffee back with the radar left on. Pretty useless for sure.... Simon
