I agree. But explain to me why my account is affected such that my premium subscription is no longer active. They passed that off as a "server" issue also. Obviously something isn't configured correctly on my account or everyone else would be screaming that speed limits aren't displaying. Yet customer service doesn't want to deal with it.

Update: Thanks to whoever at Escort jumped in and fixed my account. It’s working now and I know someone fixed it since my expiration date moved by two days (in the good direction).

I have no sound on my RD and my phone if I used the New Escort Live App. As I stated on my previous notes.

Specs: iOS 12.2. iPhone 6. Max 360 79 serial.

I will list issues I'm currently experiencing with the new version:

The Over Speed audio alert from my Max 360 is not fixed with a power cycle. I've previously reported this problem here on the forum. Escort Live now resets the alert level to speed limit, even after turning it off in all locations in settings, including manually through the detector menus. An Update All via Detector Tools has temporarily dealt with the audio alert, but the visual alert still occurs in the app.

Inconsistent crash when starting the app and then turning on the detector. Order: Open Escort Live. Turn on Max 360. Bluetooth pairs. App closes.

Bring back K/Ka labeled icons on the map. The new generic icons are less useful.

Speed limit rectangle obscures K/Ka information when tapping on a K/Ka alert icon on the map.

Inconsistent audio alerts for K and Ka. Set to Phone as instructed above. Waiting to test again.

Bring back tapping anywhere to mute an alert. The new mute button is too small and distracting when driving.

Arrows are too small. Frequency is slightly easier to read, but still small.

Bring back alert distances and Speed Trap location marking.

Red color for speed when exceeding the limit difficult to read (as stated above by others).

This didn't work for me, only way I can get any audio to work is to set it to "Auto" and turn off my radar detector.

The new version of the app is great. Very simple and easy to use. Enjoying it here.

Always looking forward to new things that Escort has coming. Great job !

Default Initial impressions

ALCON,

Hello. Running the new EL app (Version 3.0.30 / Build:0) on an iPhone 8+ with iOS 12.3 Dev beta 2.

My initial impressions are that this is a stable and useful tool to compliment my Redline EX while driving here in Europe.

Suggestions for firmware updates/improvements:
1.) Please consider allowing a default zoom setting feature, similar to other popular traffic navigation apps. I ask for this since the app still requires me to either zoom in on initial launch, or it fails to zoom out when I am traveling at higher speeds where a larger view would be adventageous for situational awareness.
2.) Allow for a setting that dictates the minimum warning distances for various selected threats. I.E., the old app would allow me to set red light camera distances. This seems to have gone away with the new app and it's much farther than my previous app's settings were.
3.) Along with #2 above, please allow for more than one single audible alert when approaching known selected threats. I.E., I currently only hear one alert, and this is coming way too early from the actual alert, a reminder as I approach the threat would be nice.
4.) While manually selecting the "phone" Alert audio option, which is a very nice feature to announce alerts over the BT audio in my car, I am now being constantly alerted to signals that have already been previously classified by the auto learn feature for known stationary non-threats. It's so annoying that I now leave it to the Auto setting.
5.) In the old app, I was able to manually mark known speed cameras etc, and these were indicated as BLUE markers against the Defender RED icons. I seem to have lost these manual markers. I enjoyed having the ability to utilize this in the event that I did not have network connectivity with the Defender DB or EL was down and not working and think having local/user only markers is a nice feature to remain incorporated.

Side note/Caveat to the above: It seems as if some of my previously saved markers are still being utilized, either by my REX as saved locations, althought I am not for sure. What I don't understand is the ability to confirm a real or false threat. I am being offered a chance to confirm /deny the same threats every time I pass them, speaking about fized speed cameras for example.
There never seems to be any acknowledgement to this feature. With competitor crowd sourced traffic apps that allow reporting of police and speed cameras, this functions primarily on the "street cred" of the user. Those that are well established users have the ability to dismiss false reports and establish previously unknown threats. Does Escort have any plans to establish a credibility score for it's user?

All in all, I am very pleased nonetheless. Special thanks to all the alpha and beta testers to make the app what it is so far. I hope this information is useful to Larry and Escort for future firmware updates pending, based upon the mass of all of us new testers from the initial release.

Cheers.

By mentioning a “zoom” I am assuming you mean similar to how some other apps react while driving it zooms out and then zooms in while slowing down??

I was able to get audio working, the problem was that the speaker option on the map screen was giving a false on indication. I cycled it to off and back on and then audio started working. I then noticed that my over speed limit alert was going off at the limit and not the +15 that was set. I switched that to off and then back to +15 and that issue was fixed also. It looks like the settings in the app may not always show there true state.

I have now noticed that locked out alerts are still going off on the phone. K-Band alerts that I have locked out are silent on my detector but alerting on the phone.

Tried the new app and soon discovered that it can be hard to see in bright sunlight, there needs to be more contrast.
the overspeed tied to the posted speed limit is distracting.
