Exclamation Introducing the ESCORT M1 dash cam!


ESCORT M1 provides peace of mind by continuously recording the road in crystal clear 1080P HD video.

Working side-by-side with select Escort and Beltronics radar/laser detectors, M1 provides cutting edge features, phenomenal video quality, and ease of use a perfect driving companion!

M1 integrates with the detector eliminating the need for additional cords and power sources and creates a single space on the windshield for both the detector and the dash cam.

Installation doesn't get simpler: simply attach M1 to your existing StickyCup mount and plug it into your detector's power cord jack. That's it, you're now recording!

M1 requires no input from you, because it is always recording. The integrated G-sensor automatically saves footage when triggered by an accident, footage both before and after the event. Should you see something extraordinary that you want to share (say, a meteor), press the record button and it will save the footage both before and after you pressed it which you can then view and easily share later via text, email, Facebook, etc, wirelessly from the M1 app on your smartphone.

ESCORT M1: $199.95 available only from EscortRadar.com

NOTE that M1 is not compatible with 9500i and 9500ix detectors, ZW5 and SmartCord Live power cords

Default So how do Mac Users

I ordered one, but I notice there is a new firmware update, released today for the device. How are MAC users suppose to update this device? Since it works with your connected devices, is there hope that it can be updated over WIFI or through the detector it's plugged into? Or how about just giving us MAC users our own version of Detector Tools Pro to use, since Escort Radar keeps giving us reasons to have to have it. We, MAC users, are your customers also.

Default Moderators

Moderators, please don't give me the boot camp/windows option or the Parallels' virtualization crap again. I got it, and I heard it enough under the MAC detector tools thread. My question needs to be answered by Escort Radar as an official company policy toward Mac operating system users. If it's not going to work for us, we should know now. If I need to cancel my order because I can't update it, he should be the one to tell me that.

I think if you read the frequently asked questions thread above this one you will have your answer. Questions 12 and 17. If you follow the directions on how to updatd this product you can't go wrong.

Default I systematically read

With all due respect to the senior member of the forum; I read the User Manual, Quick Start Guide, and the frequently asked questions thread including questions 12 (which refers you to the website then on to the manual), and question 17 (which has to do with a viewer program). It didn't answer my issue which lead me to compose my post. Either it's going to work or not. If I plug a Mavic Pro into my MBP computer it doesn't see anything, until I run a DJI interface program and then I can update anything. It's just a question, isn't that what this forum is for?

gms1smooth,

M1 is natively compatible with Mac computers. Your Mac will see it under "Devices" in Finder identified as: ESCORT_M1. Just plug M1 in to your Mac using only the included micro-USB cord (do not connect the power cord to M1).

To update the M1 firmware, simply follow the instructions on the M1 firmware download page. It is very easy to perform and no special software like Detector Tools is required.

This is due to how the sales tax laws are changing. There are many states which we now must charge sales tax on.

One drawback is the fact that I always remove my detector whenever I am in an unfamiliar area and the camera kind of draws attention to itself.
Cool man. That is really neat. I like it ! I gotta get one of these!
