Two of ESCORT’s installed radar detection platforms can now work with the latest KENWOOD and KENWOOD eXcelon digital multimedia receivers. Utilizing Automotive Data Solutions’ iDatalink Maestro RR2, the KENWOOD devices now work with both the ESCORT iX Ci and ESCORT MAX Ci units.
The new integration allows drivers see ESCORT radar detector information on the KENWOOD multimedia screen, including vehicle speed and the current location’s speed limit. Alerts play through the vehicle’s front speaker, announcing the specific radar or laser band, current vehicle speed and direction, if rear radar is installed. The driver can use the touch screen to turn off the laser shifter (if equipped) and mark red-light cameras, speed traps and police locations.
