What's New in Version 2.1.14
So I like having the app and I like having it warn me about possible radar threats ahead. The radar detector itself works very well. So a few things that I don't like about the app: I wish I could shut off some red lights not all but ones that I drive through every day. The app does not play nice with my iTunes on my iPhone if I hit pause and then hit play again it goes to the first song in my library instead of back to the song that's playing. The app also seems to stay running in the background for some reason when I get out of the car I'm in the house and all of a sudden it'll pop up with the warning it'll say radar ahead. I also wish the display would auto dim after some amount of time the full bright display does not allow the phone to charge while it's on.
Privacy Location Settings...
I like the app and it has improved over the year, but one small change that would save me is changing it so that location services are only used while using. There is a setting in iOS development and many apps use this as well. If you go to settings -->privacy --> location services --> then go to Escort and change it from Always to "While Using". Right now it requires you to have it on either Always or Never. If you are not using the app and leave it on your battery will drastically drain and that is just silly. Four stars or higher if this change is made.
So I got a free one year subscription with my new Max 360. I don't even know where to start. I could be driving in a 30 mph zone and the radar would be showing speed limit as 40. I'd be driving on freeways listening to red light camera alerts. Non of the "reported" by others alerts were correct. The app itself is very clumsy and at this point completely worthless; Waze offers much better warnings to go with your radar. I used it for a month and the only thing I can say - Escort, shame on you. No industry leader should have such app, charge prime dollar membership fees and keep its place atop the food chain. If you don't fix it, this app will bring you down
