Getting a ticket from a law enforcement officer is definitely painful. When it comes to avoiding such encounters, radar detectors help a lot. We got a chance to play with a new service, Escort Live, which provides a deeper level of smartphone integration while using your radar detector.
To take advantage of the service all you have to do is purchase a special cable to connect your smartphone to your existing Escort radar detector.
Now, we know that many of you out there are interested in Cobra’s iRadar system. But Escort Live is a whole lot better.
As you might already know, the iRadar system was unveiled around this time in 2010. We got a chance to check it out and although it was a good start the technology came with a lot of drawbacks.
To use iRadar users have to purchase a special iRadar radar detector, and there are separate versions for Android and iOS OSs.
But you will definitely love the new Escort Live service. The special cable that you buy connects your handset to the Escort radar detector via Bluetooth. The cable helps to connect either an Android smartphone or the iPhone using a specialized app.
The company says that there are more than a million compatible Escort and Beltronics radar detectors already being used by customers everywhere that can connect with Escort Live.
After connection is established, radar or laser warnings will be communicated to Escort’s servers. You might know that some law enforcers wait until they see a speeder before activating their equipment. By using Escort Live, you will be able to see warnings from other drivers on your handset.
The service also provides you with a filter system which helps to filter the frequency of police equipment.
Escort Live is impressive and we are expecting the company to come out with a detection system that will be hard to beat in the future.
