Default App setting keeps reverting to the default

Escort Live! version: 2.1.14
Phone hardware: Samsung Galaxy S9
Phone software: Android 8
Radar: Max II

Hi,

I was using my Max II with a Galaxy S6 phone with no issues. I just moved to a brand new S9 and installed the Escort Live! app.


Under settings > App settings > Over Speed Limit Alert the default is "Speed Limit"

I change this to "Off" and back out of the settings to the map/dashboard view. The next time I go over the speed limit I will get a verbal warning. Sure enough, I go back into settings and it has changed back to "Speed Limit"

How do I get it to stay "Off"? I have tried un-installing and re-installing the app. but it did not help.

This is a screenshot of the setting that is consistently and repeatedly changing back to "Speed Limit":



Thanks in advance

I read on ERF somewhere that you set overspeed to off, then reboot the detector and that makes overspeed stay off.

Restart your detector and the setting will take effect. We will have this fixed in a future update.

I thought I had seen a thread saying you need to restart the detector for the settings to 'stick' , so I had already tried that and it didn't work.

I called support and they confirmed that a restart no longer fixes this and I just have to wait until the next update to be released :-(

If the setting has already returned to the default I'm not sure how a restart would help anyway...you're just confirming the default at that point? Unless there is specific timing/sequencing to be followed?

Thanks

I'm having the same problem on my Note 8 even though my dtector has been reset. Interestingly, iPhone does not have the same problem. For me, it makes the app unusable & if I'd known I would never have signed up. Escort, when can we expect a fix?

A new version of Escort Live with a complete overhaul is due out any week now so we have been told. Iphones have always worked better with most apps then Android., same for Escort Live. So many third party app builders with Android it's just a big hot mess some times getting everything to play well.

Yep, I have the S9 as well... same problem. Feels like I have my mom in the car chastising me every couple of minutes.

Other than that... happy with everything.

Update: Rebooting my phone/restarting the app seemed to have fixed my issue. (I could have swore I did that already.)

Is this overspeed alert fix coming? I too am having the same issue with my Note 8 phone. Nothing works to fix it. I re-logined, restarted the app, reinstalled the app, etc

Will the new Live version on iOS that is supposed to come to Android this month have this overspeed alert fix?
