Default NYC Adds Over 600 New Speed Cameras

Recent Legislation that passed NY Assembly allowed for over 600 new speed cameras to be added in NYC, these cameras went into effect on July 11th and I already got caught on 2 which the Max360 with Latest Defender Database (7/22/19) didn't warn me of.

I would like to know is Escort is aware of this insane change change in NYC and if you're planning to add these cameras ASAP to your Defender Database?

I suspect hundreds if not thousands of Escort customers would really be happy to avoid these cams with the help of your products.

Thank you.

Hi,

I downloaded latest Defender Update onto my Max360 (8/5/19) and drove around the NYC locations where new speed cameras were put up, it did not catch any of them. What is strange is that it is giving me warnings of speed cameras where there are none.

What is the issue here guys? NYC has been on a speed camera blitz and Defender Database which I paid for is giving false locations and a month after these cams were installed, they are still not in the database.

When is Escort going to fix this?

Yes, Escort said hopefully next week, which already passed and the recent update didn't address the issues. Defender is not defending, and I am not pleased with this considering this is a extraordinary problem now in NYC. So please define "Soon" as while we're waiting for escort, we're getting financially abused by these speed cameras.

There were many red light cameras, speed cameras, and red light + speed cameras added to the last two database updates (Aug 5, Aug 12). If you continue to miss alerts to any then please give me an intersection so that I can check the database.

Please keep in mind that most cameras enforce only certain directions. If you are approaching a camera in an unenforced direction then you will not receive an alert.

Are those locations also in EL or are these separate DBs?
