What's New in Version 2.1.15
-Fixed bluetooth reconnection issue
App has a horrible interface and is full of bugs. Almost never plays audio warning via phone unless app is running in foreground. Drains battery like crazy. Hideous UX. Literally one of the worst interfaces I've used in iOS. Want to mark police, for example? Good luck, finding the tiny button is impossible without looking closely. Many of the functions in the app simply don't work. Press "clear" and nothing happens. Almost never receive any "live" warnings because very few people use the awful app. I was mislead when purchased detector, thought it had GPS when really it's just through phone Bluetooth which is extremely annoying to lock out superfluous signals. Lastly, forcing a $50 annual subscription fee after paying hundreds for a detector is asinine. Very disappointed with escort, I should have just kept my old detector and saved $400.
This app needs work. Every time I use it, it crashes. The benefit of having the app and link it to a locational network is completely negated when the app crashes. I miss out on the real-time alerts all the time as a result. I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of my radar detector purchase and I don't see myself paying the $50 to renew it.
Huge disappointment as I see the value in having the app and its capabilities but if it always crashes and loses connection than what's the point? Escort needs to devote some development time into improving this app. For a $600+ radar detector I think they can spare some time to improve the app that makes their radar detector better.
Update: After latest update, Bluetooth connection is better but the problem is still not solved. Most of the time it doesn't connect to iphone 7 Bluetooth automatically when you get in the car.
Even though phone is Bluetooth connected to the Max 360 automatically, the current speed limit is not shown on the Max 360 unless the phone was unlocked and used in the car. I usually leave the phone in my jacket or pants. I don't want to take it out every time to use this feature. The radar shows that Bluetooth is connected so make the app work in background and send speed limit to the radar.
