Default Escort Live - is it worth it?

Hello Everyone,

I am new to the forums and just bought a max 2 at a great price. Is Escort Live worth the money? I seen the reviews on itunes and some people are having problems with staying connected.

I saw some of the features but wanted to hear from the actual users.

Escort is not charging for EL. Try it and decide for yourself, as there is some disagreement on whether or not it is worth using, even for FREE.

You get an Escort Live premium subscription with your Max 2 at no charge. Simply register your Max 2 on our website to activate it.

When using an Escort Live ready detector with Escort Live (such as your Max 2) then all of Escort Live's pertinent information is displayed on your Max 2's full color screen. This allows you to turn your phone's screen off to save its batteries and you can use another app while Escort Live runs in the background.

Escort Radar customer service is available from 9am-5:30pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608 or by live chat

Default Absolutely

I have an iphone 6 with latest ios and have zero issues. Ive had my IX for about a week with close to 1,000 miles. I think the app logged me out twice.

Years ago with my 9500ix I didn't use EL, I had issues with the detector slowing down.

With my new IX it's absolutely amazing, I use it when taking my son to school, going to Walmart etc. My detector is mounted just under my mirror with the stock mount and hardwired to my mirror. My phone attaches with magnet to my vent mount. This gives me a nice, unobstructed view of the road with tons of info at hand.

It will alert you on the phone and detector if there is a red light camera, speed trap or user added warnings. They update in real time. It will all show real time laser and KA hits from other users. The app will also show you the speed limit and warn you on the phone and detector if you are over. With no wires and the detector mounted high I simply tap anywhere on my phone and it silences the detector. Its also easy to add sightings while driving or stopped.

I live in the DFW metroplex suburbs and there are tons if users even on the side roads. Past weekend I was in a much more rural and secluded area and still got a lot of user updates. I find that EL is excellent at giving you a heads up both visually on the phone and while paired with the detector.

I will be renewing my subscription next year unless Escort drops support and updates for live.
