Because I've been a tester, and without violating my NDA, I think that everyone will enjoy the new version.

When a software dev says that the release is close he is telling us some time this quarter into next.
It's been several years since a major release and I've been patiently waiting for the update to address with screen size and rotation on the iPhone since Apple release plus and X phone screens(3 years ago iPhone 7Plus). So what's a couple more months.
Give the devs a break and let them get it right.

Not really, Escort said February 1st - they keep pushing it back week by week, week after week.

I might be inclined to believe your assessment, however Escort keeps eluding to it being released in a matter of days for the past month and a half.

If it will be another month I wish they would just come out and say it.

Android Pie/9.0 has been publicly available since August 2018. Some manufacturers, most notably Samsung, use their own versions of Android OS. This means people who use devices made by those manufacturers do not get OS updates until months after they are actually released.

Yep, My Pixel had Android Pie on the second week of August. Still doesn't play well with Live...

Please be patient for a bit longer. Live2 is a game-changer.

Its release is imminent

Makes me think of the old Heinz ketchup commercial...”Anticipation, anticipation is making me late, is keeping me waiting”. :-)

I can’t begin to tell you how many times daily I’m checking my App Store for an update nowadays. Lol.

Default Updated Escort Live

I kind of spouted off yesterday about the upcoming release of Escort Live. I would rather the product be done right and tested right than to shove it out the door. With that in mind, it will be ready when its ready.

My main concern which I am banking on is that Escort Live will be incorporated into Apple Car Play. It would be so much easier to use than to fiddle with a phone while your driving.

With that said, I will just ask the question.

Will the updated Escort Live have "CarPlay" ability?

The bigger question is will it have Waze integration?

CarPlay is nice, but the amount of alerts/reports that Waze gives you is 100 to 1 over Escort Live. I run both on trips as that 'one' alert that EL has that Waze does not could still save you.

I really hope they worked with Waze to get their data displayed on EL. It would be a shame to see all of this app work for nothing.

I wouldn't hold my breath. Google's already getting heat for Waze's police notifications from the state of NY, I think, so they may not want to rock the boat further by associating with a radar detector company!

It's a hope for me as well. There used to be Waze integration but they stopped

Default Escort Live

No matter how long it takes to make it right.. There is no way an Apps will be 100% perfect.. This is why there something call " Firmware or Software update" to patch the issue.. and for Escort > Please just tell us when exactly the new EL release date..And I have a feeling this New Apps will have some Advertising marketing and if we you don't like the advertising..There is a catch ($$$)... That's all I can say..
