Default Your subscription has Expired!

I thought I got at least a year with me purchase of my redline EX - it is already telling me to renew after a few months????????. Still don't understand why this app isn't free for life with your $600 purchase, or multiple Escort purchases.

Sign out of the app then sign back in. Worked for me when mine showed as expired.


If that doesn't work call Escort Radar customer service, available from 9am-5:30pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608

I agree about the Escort Live app being free. Especially for new detector purchasers. When my one-year-free-with-detector-purchase subscription expires, I have no intention of renewing it.

I just don’t find much utility in it. I turn it on, and it mostly runs in the background while Waze is in the foreground. In the past 2-3 months that I’ve been using the EL app, it hasn’t provided me with any real and usable data. Especially considering the speed limits that it displays are notoriously wrong. I get it that Escort is just providing data from another source that they have no control over. But the speed limits being wrong constantly has made the left section of my detector-display just a wasted space. I do wish there was a way to disable that section and the detector utilize that space for more and/or better radar detection data.

For free, I’ll keep running it in the background. But for $50 a year, no thanks.

To er95: I hope that you're aware that Escort has never charged customers a subscription fee to customers who purchased an Escort Live-ready detector or their Escort Live Smartcords. They continue to extend the subscriptions. I've had a free premium service account since 2011, and others will vouch that they're not paying a fee after one year, either. Presently, mine says it won't expire until 2019.

But in order for the Defender Database to be loaded on the detector, there is a subscription fee for that, correct?

Did you try signing out of the app and then signing back in?
