The App is a little unstable: I have two Max/smart cords for two months and just drove from NYC to West Palm FL. The App quits sometimes for no reason. It also quits 99% of the time when it is connected to the smart cord and I try to open the settings. Also after they have been connected for some time the alerts will stop being displayed on the iPhone. Alerts will still show on the Max but nothing will show on the iPhone. Additionally usually after the App has quit the screen will not display properly on the iPhone, with the bottom line of icons (settings etc) being split almost in half horizontally along the bottom of the screen, so that only the top half of the icons can been scene. This usually goes away after restarting the iPhone or after a couple disconnects and reconnects. I have also had some problems with the smart cord disconnecting completely from the iPhone and then only reconnection after restarting the iPhone. However when it works which is most of the time it is great.

This product, along with the IOS App, is not consistent. It sometimes works right away, sometimes you have to open the app on the phone, sometimes you have to log in, sometimes it doesn't get a network connection. When you intervene in the cases where it doesn't work it eventually does. Then, the problem is the phone's battery life, which used to be excellent is now not very good at all. If the phone can remain with the display off, then it's not as bad, but I will usually plug the phone into power in the car which I never used to have to do. That's one more thing to worry about. I think with a bit more work all of these problems will eventually be resolved. They don't call it the "bleeding edge" for nothing. I like new high tech items, which this definitely qualifies as. When you get it going, it is really fantastic. The warnings of "Live Cops" works like a charm, so I have no doubt that sooner or later I will be totally satisfied with this product.

Great idea, just needs the bugs worked out

By 

from British Columbia, Canada

Verified Buyer

This unit can cause blue tooth interference with your blue tooth phone calls. Also sometimes needs to be power cycled as it is prone to locking up. I have 2 of these. Both have interference issues, one locks up more than the other. Many times you have to manually connect to bluetooth via settings in your phone as it doesn't always connect automatically.

Too complicated

By 

from Undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Too many false alarms. On a recent trip, only 2 of 30 live alerts were real. I had to turn the unit off in Houston, it was falsing so much. There is no way to test the 7 tones in the settings that I can see and it is not addressed in the instructions I downloaded. I am thinking about returning the unit before my 30 days is up unless I get a better understanding of how the unit operates.

I'm a tech guy, and this is high tech!! Almost to high...

By 

from Cleveland, TN, USA

Verified Buyer

Awesome devices!!! But maybe I'm still in a learning curve.
I guess the hard part may be apparently reading the manual. I'm still having a hard time realizing when I'm on the network, and when I'm not. I'll get 3 to 5 notices that the network is down on my phone, and I have to OK them, and then maybe I'm live, or maybe I'm not...I still don't know. Also, it seems that the map view doesn't work correctly all the time. It appears on the screen, but isn't working, then I move over to dashboard, and things seem to be working there, yet from time to time the speed isn't correct. I may be doing 55, (or usually more), and the dashboard is reading 38 MPH.
As far as what it all does, it's super cool, when it all works together, but I'm still kinda confused, as to when that's all up and running, even with the live light, in blue mode. No more spaced allowed

Good for Iphone to Radar detector interface

By 

from St. Marys, GA, USA

Verified Buyer

I have not used the smart wire with my radar detector very much, and only for one hour trips. I would rate Escort Live app as not very helpful in terms of social networking, because no other users were reporting to the app in my area of Jacksonville, Fl to Brunswick, GA. I felt like the sole user compared to using the Waze app for social mapping navigation, for which there are hundreds if not thousands of users in my area using the Waze app and reporting hazards and police.

I do like using the Waze app with Escort Live to get the app to radar detector interface. The Escort Live app lets me see the type of radar and it frequency and lets me lock out that radar at that location. Also the app allows me to program the radar detector with in my app on the Iphone. Pretty neat.

Nice product

By 

from Chicago, IL, USA

Verified Buyer

Having the advantage of the Escort live network is an excellent way to combat laser and pulse Ka. This advantage is like no other detector and more than compensates for the weaknesses I mention below.
I have experienced many reports of live police that turned out to be illusory. I suspect that live users must use jmore udgment / restraint when reporting moving police cars.
Bluetooth link up at start up usually requires going into iPhone settings in addition to starting the live app.

Looks nice I purchased the blue screen. Works great and links up quickly with iPhone and detector. Why did I wait so long to purchase? Highly recommend pairing this with your detector.

Awesome product

This product is great! I love the fact that you can lock out false alerts and be notified in advance of a police spotting. Escort customer service is by far the best of any company I have ever dealt with.
