Question Bluetooth question

I just got a new X70 from amazon, as a replacement for my long serving 8500X50 which finally gave up on me after 13 years. Just want to make sure I understand the bluetooth issue correctly ... though there is a bluetooth icon shown on the X70's display, I don't really get bluetooth connectivity unless I purchase the smart cord live also. Is that correct?

Mostly this unit will be used on 2 wheels. I try to keep the added accessories to a minimum anyway.

Correct. The bluetooth icon that you see is grey. When you connect a SmartCord Live to it, and pair it to your phone, then this icon will turn blue. When you start the Escort Live app then it will change to display the speed limit for the road you are on (as long as you are logged into the account you created when you registered the SmartCord Live cord).
