This app is really really half-a$$ed. It crashes constantly on my Nexus 6P. The map graphics flash and do strange things. I routinely, almost every time, have to kill the app manually and restart multiple times to get it to connect to my Max 360. Bluetooth connection to detector is extremely unstable and will drop connection randomly. I have it 2 stars simply because the database seems legit.
The mapping feature needs to be able to have 1. a"Heads Up" display, it doesnt. map always faces north. 2. need night drive models reenactment too bright 3.why does it need to log on Internet, should just need to communicate with radar 4. All day keeps getting error messeges: 2 & 500
Pro: It's nice being able to change the settings without touching the radar and it has a good database. Cons: The graphics are dated and the app hasn't innovated. I kept having notification issues and it seems their server crashed for a few days. I really wish Escort overhauled this app because it does not match the quality of their radars.
The connection to device doesn't always show speed and limit which is the main reason I upgraded to the Bluetooth smart cord. Needs a night time mode so the map isn't so bright in your face. ALSO NEEDS TO WORK AS A BACKGROUND APP SO THE APP DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ON SCREEN AND THE SCREEN CAN BE OFF***
I went from a 9500ix to the new passport, not sure if a up grade or downgrade but the app works flawlessly when using the device as a speedometer. You can't even tell the new passport does not have GPS built in.. moving forward to now, I tried out the passport x70 and that was a serious downgrade. Same detection as the passport but without Bluetooth so no escort live. Had it for a month then sold it. Now I have the max 360. Fantastic detector. Only gripe with it is that when connected to escort live, the phone with the tell you where the band is coming from. It just gives you band information. Still have to look up at the detector to figure out of the threat is in front or behind. Otherwise, completley satisfied.
Accessing everything on my phone so Escort can sell it to third parties isn't welcome. This app leaves a lot to be desired. Making functionality like posted speed limits depend on my phone isn't necessary, my old IQ does it without a phone - this $650 detector should too.
- Fixed laser alerts not reporting
- Fixed an issue displaying incorrect speed on a connected detector
- Fixed an issue causing app to crash when using metric units in Canada
- Further improvements to bluetooth auto connection with detector
