Update to 2.1.3 No big improvements have been made with this version. Wish that last known zoom size was a default. Also would like to see 3D driving function, night mode, and map orientation to driving direction. Considering we pay a subscription you would think there would be a team of engineers making more improvements than once a year.
Just ok I bought the escort max2 and it came with this app. Frequently when it starts it takes multiple try to get the phone and max2 to connect. I live 4 blocks away from a speed trap with multiple blocks of cross streets to get there. Never the less every time it boots I am warned of approching speed trap although I am actually not approaching. So it's not what you would expect from a $600 piece of hardware with a smartphone app supporting it.
Will not shut off Keeps on trying to access my GPS and trying to connect. Have a Samsung S5. Drains battery make phone run hot. What is good when you can't use this app on a max2 $600 detector?
Needs work... Bought it primarily to be able to adjust my MAX configuration options because you can't reach the buttons on the MAX if it's mounted high on the windshield (where it needs to be). It allows you to do that just fine... The one thing I don't like is the mapping software. It is crude, at best. You cannot 're-orient the map, it only shows a north south perspective and I don't like that. You also must accept the size map presented to you, you cannot "pinch" or "spread" the map as in other apps.
Not working well Uses too much battery power. I also don't see anyone else alerts only my own that I post. Not very helpful please fix this
I purchased the Passport radar for $350.00. I received the radar and immediately started using it. Unfortunately, the radar doesn't pair up very well with my Samsung smartphone, most of the time. That means that I can't use the device in conjunction with my phone. I called Escort dark and was told that an improved version of the app would be available soon but unfortunately it's been 5 months and still no update! The radar works great but the app is at best, useless. I thought that for the amount of money invested, I would have had a high quality product that works as I was told it would by the salesman. What a dhame, "Escort" was once a name that was well trusted!!!
What’s new in Escort Live Radar v2.1.3:
- Added Live Traffic to map view. To toggle traffic on and off, go to settings.
- Added “Air Patrol” location alerts. Air Patrol zones are known aircraft speed enforcement areas.
- Added Intelligent Speed Trap locations and a Speed Trap “Alert Level” setting. Adjusting the Speed Trap "Alert Level” setting determines the threat level of Speed Traps you receive.
- Fixed connection bug with SmartCord Live direct wire and Passport Max.
Don't waste your time. Be aware of road traffic and speed camera in real time !
