One of suggestion maybe when working with radar to announce with detected band the time when it was detected. Let say:
the Radar Detector tells: "Live Ka 20 min ago" when driving next "Live Ka 30 min ago" on the same street means you are driving away from source of "Ka" or if getting less in time: you are following the source of "Ka" signal. As this information already present on the map when touching icon it can be pronounced too or added in settings for someone who like that info or doesn't. Can be done for Ka, Mobile Camera, Police, and Laser.
Thank you

Major changes are coming to Escort Live soon. It sounds like you will appreciate what will be added.

Default using google maps share

not sure it was suggested. Basically using gps google maps app for traveling and using google maps in EL can be all in one. If EL uses google map with marked radar signs. It can be used as shared map in gps google map app.
Advantage: when following the route built by google, EL shared map can be seen in background of the standard google map app. Something need to be done to see built routes and EL marked signs in same time

Hi, I'm a new Escort Max Ci user in Western Europe (driving mostly in Austria, Germany, France, Belgium) and am using Escort Live app together with the built-in radar detector.

What I noticed is that there are no speed limits for the European roads here in the app. How so? My obvious suggestion would be to enable speed limits in the app and the detector. There is plenty of data - every GPS car navigation system has these speed limits so I think this should not require too much work.

Secondly, I would be very glad to know how up to date the GPS reporting of speed traps etc. are for the European roads? I'm using the app for a week and I think most speed traps are reported in the app, so good job. Is this being crowdsourced (is there enough European Escort users so we can rely on it?) or are you relying on third-party databases as for example Waze, Coyote, etc.?

Thirdly, there are quite a lot of false Kband reportings in Germany, Belgium, seeing there are a lot of traffic cameras on the roads, cities. Will there ever be an option to automatically mute false alerts that are reported by other users on Escort live? I don't know for each country what type of threats are real, so this would be VERY useful in Europe.

Thank you so much for the answer!
Tass

I only know the answer to this question. Make sure TSR is turned on and after driving past the traffic cameras 3 times the RD will AutoLearn those false alerts and not alert to them anymore.

Thank you for this! But unfortunately, the European version of Max Ci does not have a TSR function - maybe it's always on? IDK.

But I do have AutoLearn function enabled. But I am afraid that AutoLearn would also block out a real threat. We have a lot of stationary radars here in the EU - how does the device know what is a radar and what's not a radar? Sorry for being stupid, but I'm new here

Default Why doesn’t the app allow choice of map or Dashboard

Rather than defaulting on map

I've been asking for this for years. So simple but no. ****es me off. I've probably had to push that damn tab over 6,000 times over the years. FFS.
