Default X70 and SmartCord Live Direct Wire

Having trouble getting this set up for my X70. I used the power cord for my X70 to power up the Smart Cord Live unit. Is the cable that connects the SmartCord Live to the X70 a RJ45 connector (6 wire)? The kit I got only has a 4 wire cord. I'm wondering if I have the kit for a 9500ci connection. The power wire looks like the one in the manual for the 9500ci.

You cannot use your detector's power cord with the SmartCord Live direct wire. See the wiring diagram for the SmartCord Live direct wire.

Default Cables

Thanks. Looks like I have the cables for the 9500ci setup. Is there a way to buy the cables for the windshield setup?

From the SmartCord Live direct wire manual, notice that the 9500ci direct wire has a RJ jack on one of the cables (which you plug the 9500ci display into). If your cable has this then you definitely have the 9500ci direct wire. The box will also say that it is for the 9500ic, and the serial number will begin with 71.

NOTE that if you have the SmartCord Live 9500ci direct wire, it will not work with windshield mounted detectors even if you have the correct cables to connect them.

If you just need the correct cables you can order them by calling us. Here is a list of the direct wire parts (in the Escort Live General section)

Default Serial number

The serial number is 48001833. So it should work with a windshield unit then?

That is a 9500ci Apple only direct wire. It will not work with a windshield mounted detector.
