Default Bug Report - Connected with App Not Open

Hmm

Drove to the gym. Did not launch Escort Live. Got the Bluetooth symbol.

Drive home. Did not launch Escort Live. Speed limit displayed...? Pushed and held to "report" and got a "Reported" displayed on the detector. Got home, launched Live and confirmed that my report was in fact there?

I though that the App had to be open to exchange data with the live servers?

On a similar topic, very often the speed limit displayed by the detector is *9km/h, as in 59, 69 etc while the app Dashboard displays 60, 70?

FYI

Brass

MaxII current firmware
Escort Live version 2.1.23
iPhone 7
iOsS version 11.0.3

The current version of EL allows Location Services on your iPhone to continue to run, and it will interact with your detector. You can manage the Location Services' behavior on your iPhone.

I've seen this myself. The detector and your iPhone use separate GPS, so that might be part of it, or perhaps it's an artifact of the rounding algorithm. It doesn't bother me, but I do find it to be a curiosity.

TBNTX.

Currently set to "Always" but fairly certain the App needs to be running in the background for this to matter on iOS.

Curious how the "reported" function is making it's way through?

Ref speed. GPS speed is displayed on the right, and Speed Limit data, which is not GPS derived, is on the left. Am sure it is a rounding error in the code somewhere.

Escort Live will run in the background when the paired detector is powered on and in bluetooth range. If you do not wish for this to happen then "Forget" the detector from within Escort Live's Settings/Devices menu.

It can, yes, some have seen this happen. It started with iOS 9 I believe.

On the latest iOS version, you should be able to say "While Using The App" now under Settings --> Privacy --> Location Services --> Escort Live. This would force you to keep Escort Live open when you are in the car to run it.

I, personally, have it turned to "Always" and love that it automatically detects and connects and the speed limit comes up on the detector when I get in the car. It seems to have gotten better at doing this consistently with my new iPhone X then it did with my 7 Plus, but I've only had it a few days so could just be a coincidence.

I believe this only happens when going from a Wi-Fi network to cellular.
