Default Smart Cord Live Direct Wire, Android Version

I own the older Passport Max and had it hooked up with the Escort Smartchord Live Direct Wire for iPhone. I need the Android version Direct Wire now to work with my Note 9 and I can't find it on the site. I assume it's no longer made or supported by Escort. I liked the ease of hitting the "Report Button" on it. I don't see that button on the current Smartchords available at Escort now. I've found one for $99 but hate to spend that much... Think they used to be 30 something dollars when I bought the iPhone version.

How do I connect Escort Live to the Passport Max?

Hope this helps.

For the SmartCord Live Plug & Play: iPhone/Android, the one that plugs onto your cigarette lighter:

"Mute Button Push to mute an alert. Push three times to lock out or unlock a false alert. Push and hold to report an alert when connected to ESCORT Live."

flylow is correct. On the newer cords without the report button, you report by holding down the mute button.

FYI, the same is true on all of the connected detectors. Holding down Mute reports an alert.

Escort Radar customer service is available from 9am-5:30pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608 or you can fill out a repair form and we will contact you.

After updating to the new version of the Escort Live app, my OG SmartCord's report button stopped working (obtained with my purchase of a Passport MAX 4 years ago). Has the behavior changed to mimic the new "Plug & Play" cord where you must hold down the mute button, since no report button exists on that model?

I'm in Maine, so the opportunity to test various button-pushing scenarios is a little less common than in other locales ... and I'd prefer not to annoy my fellow drivers with false reports

It probably wont work with the older setup. But you can always try it. WIth the other detectors pressing and holding mute would actually adjust the volume.
I use the following Escort Products

Escort Redline 360c
M1 Dash cam
Escort Live
