Default Different Models

Hi there,

I have a question regarding the different models available for the LIVE platform.

Originally from what I understand there were separate LIVE modules for Android and iPhone and depending on your phone model you needed one or the other.

Later on down the track a LIVE module that worked for both was then released alleviating the problem for if a customer ever changed their phone.

If those two statements are correct this brings me to my next question,
Did anything hardware specifically change in the LIVE modules between any of the model releases?
I just purchased a new LIVE smartcord but its a "for iPhone model" and want to make sure it doesn't utilise old hardware or something that might not be as effective as newer models of LIVE.

Thanks!

The hardware changed but it still functions exactly like the newer dual platform cord, except for the dual platform capability.

Thanks, One more thing..

Between the two older models that were platform specific (iPhone and Android) Did either of them ever end up supporting each other?

I'm sure I read somewhere the iPhone specific one eventually was able to be used with android as well in an update - The source was just one post on a forum though so can't be sure.

Thanks

I'm afraid that's not the case. This wasn't something that could be changed via a firmware update. Different bluetooth chips were required in either EL SmartCord for iOS or for Android.

Neither of the two older platform-specific could be made capable of supporting both platforms via a firmware change. It was only with the introduction of the new unified Escort Live SmartCord that both platforms could be supported.

Thanks guys for the responses.

Anywho I was about to order one through Escort directly
https://www.escortradar.com/store/Sm...d-Version.html

Seems as though the URL states "Android" specifically but the page entails that it should work for iphone and android - Is this correct and its just the URL that hasn't been updated? Also guessing this is the latest version of the LIVE cord too.

And as a double check this is the right model for windshield detectors (Redline etc.)?

Already got a Live cord here but its useless to me because I got the wrong one last time (Ci model) so thought I'd double double check this time.


Cheers

All Live cords sold on escortradar.com are the latest version that work with both android and iphone.

The direct wire version you linked to will work on the Redline, 9500ix and etc.
