Escort Quit

So I like to ride in the rain, and wouldn't you know it the unit goes tits-up. I have sent it in, but doubt they will fix it under warranty. Any similar situations out there?

I have a rain cover made of plastic over mine and it seems to be pretty waterproof so far.

Legal Speeding make two types of enclosures for radar detectors, among other items. One is a plastic clamshell case, not unlike the box you might find a bluetooth headset packaged in. The other is a thicker lexan-type box that is painted black save the front and back windows, and it screws together with security screws.

I suggest you visit their web site because I dono't think I'm doing a real good job of describing them. BTW, I use the Radar Box, which is the lexan type material.

For the record, I have no affiliation with legal speeding other than as a satisfied customer.

Hmmmm ... my escort is not waterproof either ... only an external waterproof housing would provide even water resistance.

Waterproof

I am certainly going to invest in a cover, "IF" Escort replaces it under warranty.
