Publisher's description - Escort Live 2.0.2
True ticket protection comes to your iPhone! Escort Inc., the world leader in ticket protection, brings you Escort “Live” - the ultimate live alert network.
Escort “Live” is social networking for the road. It connects the community of Escort radar detector owners (Escort Nation) together to bring you the most accurate network of live speed traps, speed cameras and red light cameras which are updated in real time. Unlike other apps that rely strictly on users to spot police cars, Escort “Live” alerts you to real radar and laser alerts received from our industry-leading detectors and broadcasts the real threats while filtering out false alarms.
The Escort “Live” app uses your iPhone to create the ultimate display and control panel for your detector. It presents all of the information in two driving modes – dashboard mode and map mode. In both modes you get speed limit data for major roads and interstates, plus heading and quick access to live traffic in your area. An over speed limit feature keeps you alert to speed limit changes, plus you get easy access to your detector and application settings. In map mode, you can easily see your relevant position to live alerts and fixed position (cameras) ticket threats so you can be alert and drive ticket-free.
Own one of our world-class detectors already? Simply add our new SmartCord Live to your existing detector and download this app to get connected. You’ll get up to date software for your detector, including our exclusive TrueLock feature, which locks out false alarms produced by automatic door openers. In addition, you will also receive our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software that filters out traffic flow sensor false alerts located on most U.S. interstate highways.

I like how it works with my radar but there is little activity where I live even though it`s a bigger city. Need to make it so you can manually mark places no matter where I am
1) Updated the software and it crashes and shuts down way to many times. Tried reinstalling the software and same. I have an iPhone 4. 2) Have no idea if the software is posting ka and laser signals since the software does not say anything.
Good app - watch battery life
The app functions as advertised but note that the battery drain is significant. Keep a charger handy. Even when plugged into the charger, the recharge was slow. On my iPhone 4S, I started our 5hr drive at 100% and after 1hr I was down to 70%, at 3hrs I was below 20%.
I like the dashboard view for this app. I placed my iPhone 4S between my tach and speedo and the setup looks and functions well. Perhaps a future iteration will allow for adjusting colors to match interior instrument lighting. I want to experiment more with the app, I only had an opportunity to use this on a 300 mile trip. There are times when it would be nice to be able to use the app without the radar detector strictly for the GPS speed, the posted speed limit and for the map identifying the speed cameras for MD, DC and VA.
The Redline unit worked well on our trip detecting Ka signals. I did not go for the premium subscription to experience any of the network warnings as advertised. After spending $500 with the vendor, it would have nice to have several months of a free subscription service to determine if there is value for the premium service. I would also like to see Escort offer more DirectWire options, such as, separate 12v power supply and cables; similar to the Valentine One setup. This way a user can get longer wire to hide behind the dash, up the A-pilar and to the sun visor where the unit is mounted. This is a better alternative than having the unit`s only power coming from the coiled wire going up the dash, or having to spend significantly more for the the SmartCord Live Direct Wire kit.
