What is included with MAX 3?

MAX 3 comes complete with a soft-sided travel case, NEW EZ Mag Mount windshield mount, 12-volt SmartCord® USB and quick reference guide. If you would like a more permanent installation for your MAX 3, check out the DirectWire SmartCord® or the more basic DirectWire kit for hardwired installations.

Do you offer an earphone option?

Yes; older models require a mono earphone. Most current models have a stereo jack. 

How do you mark a location?

To mark a particular location, press the "MRK" button. The display will read: "Mark?" Press the "MRK" button again to assign a label to it. There are four (4) labels: Red Light, Speed Camera, Speed Trap and Other. To scroll through the labels, simply press the volume (+) or (-) buttons until you reach the desired label. Once you've selected the label, press the "MRK" button again to confirm.

How do you block a false alert?

To lockout a false alert, (X, K or Laser only) press the mute button three (3) times, (either on the detector or the SmartCord®) during the alert. Pressing the mute button the first time will silence the audio. Pressing it a second time will generate a prompt on the display that will read: "Lockout?" Press it a third time to confirm that you want to lock this signal out by location and frequency. A "Stored" message will be displayed.

Is the 12V SmartCord required to power an ESCORT premium radar compatible with BMW models?

Yes, the SmartCord is compatible with your BMW, but might require a Standard Female Hella0(DIN) socket to Cigarette lighter type Socket adapter.
