I am using the SmartCord Live with a Passport 9500ix. After a couple of initial hiccups the Passport/SmartCord Live combo were finally paired via bluetooth. The update for the Android App seems to have done the trick. Just in time for a road trip. Since the trip was from North of Dallas, TX down to South Padre Island in Deep South Texas there was plenty of road to test the SmartCord. The SmartCord worked just as described. There are 2 issues though. One is with the actual alert. There is a delay, of about 30 minutes or so, if you do not have the "Premium" subscription. The alerts were coming in and the accuracy was acceptable. The 2nd issue is the App itself. The display for the most part is a GPS map. I use the Droid Bionic and it does have a good sized HD screen. It would be a vast improvement if this App could be launched on a Tablet. I also think that if a 3 month free trial period with the "Premium" version was offered it might sell itself if it is that much of an improvement.

I previously had the IPhone version of escort live and was very pleased with its performance. I recently changed my phone to a Samsung Galaxy S-5 and Therefore, ordered an Android Smart Cord Live. When ordering the cord I stated the model phone I was going to use with the new android smart cord. I was not told that it was not compatible. The new cord did not work and I was told to send it back and I was sent a new one which also did not fully work. Contacted customer service again and after another hour of diagnosis I finally was told the Android Smart Cord Live was not yet compatible with The Samsung phone and that they were working on the problem which I was never told when I ordered it and returned the first one. Needless to say, I am very disappointed with Escort in regards to this product. I have bought several radar detectors and the new Laser Shifter Pro and have been very satisfied with these products. My experience withe the Android cord was a disaster.

It just works.... but

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

Okay, started out okay till I got updates that were not be installed before a firmware update was done. Result... a dead SmartCord Live.... had to buy a 2nd one. Now I find that I can't reload the Tool Detection software anymore on my PC so... I have a $700 investment that well can't be updated and support did nothing to help me after many phone calls, NOTHING... Thanks Escort for taking me to the cleaners. I did give it a try, but have gone to another unit that can see forward/backward and is cheaper.... anybody want to buy mine?

Nice addition to the Redline

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

Read reviews and was on the fence about E-live. but decided to give it a try. Have Galaxy S3. No issues with phone, bluetooth, or my 2013 Ford F-150 linking up...so am happy. All I can say is if someone else detects Ka Band you will see it. I DO recommend getting a phone mount that allows you to place phone where you can easily see it without taking eyes off the road!! I am not disappointed in this product, I will probably renew when the time comes.

Bugs in software???

By 

from Dallas, TX, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

Had some BT connection issues w/ cord & 9500ix unit. Scord was replaced once, but continue to have intermittent "F Laser" alarms & I have no laser shifters, plus the 9500ix units (I have 2) both continue to go into random 'testmode' & must reboot to get back to normal operating. I see these issues as related to the Scord as they did not begin until I started using the Scord. If the radar unit is turned on before you sync the BT from your smart phone app to the Scord, it will go into an "Scord must update your firmware before operating" instruction. You enter the first 2 digits of your radar's S/N, but will not work- locks up the unit, must reboot, power down the Scord, & sync Sph & Scord BT before engaging the radar unit. I have now returned both radar units to Escort 2x for analysis & repair; the last repair did not resolve the issues. very frustrating to say the least.

Android and Live from Escort

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

I like the real time data available via your cell phone. It pairs as a bluetooth device and does not interfere with other handsfree applications in most cars. I recommend the direct wire with a mirror mount. Its out of sight, and with the right installer it looks like it was factory installed.

Suggestions for Improvement

By 

from Undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

Folks,

I was excited about the product but when I drove into Phoenix, I had warning after warning about Police, but there was NO POLICE. So, maybe they should include the time frame that the police were observed, because it makes you initially very paranoid that there is a policeman every 50 feet, but then you see NONE. At least a Time Frame when it was reported would help the next person see if it might still be relevant.

The product does have good future

By 

from Boston, MA, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

Bought this after waiting for a year or two since its launch. I own a Redline and been planning to have it for long but kept on delaying it till now. finally bought this a month back.As far as the functionality is concerned, it does work and alarms on K, KA bands, have not experienced lasar to try it out. It did alert me couple of times for police ahead, which sometimes can be a hit or miss depending on if the cop was stationary or moving. The app is supposed to be having a charge after an year of $50 or something but currently it came in free for a year with the cable. I would have no issues paying if the app map improves and works to autozoom like google maps and accuracy improves for the alerts. However it is always good to have a warning to be alert than not have any so i would still recommend this as a accessory and I am sure it would improve as other users join and help others to make it a more better in future.

Red Line, live cord combo.

By 

from Georgia, USA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Escort SmartCord Live Android Version:

The "Redline" and "Live Cord" are the perfect combination. Not only do you have the most sensitive radar protection, which equates to the distance you pick up the radar signal but you also have a way to stop false signals by locking them out! It also amazes me when the location of active radar units ahead of me flashes up on my phone long before I reach the location! I love this combination of protection! Thank you Escort for another clear winner.
