Ratings and Reviews
Serviceable when it works, which isn’t all that often
We have multiple detectors (one in each car) and everyone has their own iPhone, so we have quite a range of methods for testing. And they’re all flakier than a bowl of granola. Connecting to the detectors has previously been a 50/50 hit and miss game. With multiple people in the car we get to play the “who has the connection?” game, and often the answer is “nobody” until we reset the detector a few times.
With the release of IOS 11, successful connectivity is rare. I can probably count the number of successes on one finger, which I hereby raise at Escort for applying such shoddy software engineering to an otherwise good idea.
Beyond that, when it does work the app is OK. There are too many visual defaults that seem geared towards people who thing the Fast and the Furious series is documentary work rather than an action/fantasy drama. Buttons like report are way too small for a app that will sometimes be used by a driver. This should be useable with only the slightest of glances. Screen scaling is flaky when IOS has notifications at the top of the screen (like when you’re on a call or are simultaneously using Maps for navigation). Audio alerts sometimes pause music if you’re also streaming on your phone. I could go on and on, but the overall lack of polish is evident.
Would be worth paying for if you offered more than what’s available. I have used app since it came out and even though I no longer pay for service, I still report when I see police. I use WAZE mostly now it’s free and offers more options. But back to Escort, the map needs to be updated desperately. You should update or upgrade app to also include driving directions. That way you don’t have to flip between apps. The app should have a heads up/North option. For the price we pay for the radar the app should be free and it should be offered for free across all radars that Escort sells it was ahead of it’s time when it first came out, but has fallen behind due to lack of upgrades.
Another problem with this app is, since I’ve updated to IPhone X the phone shows to be connected, but mute doesn’t work, when radar goes off the app don’t automatically transfer hit to database I have to manually say police spotted. I love my radars and I have been saved countless times form getting a ticket. HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing Escort Radars, they are the best on the market, but the app do need attention to make this a complete package.
Escort Radar Detectors are Awesome!!!
I've had my third Escort Radar Detector for almost 3years now. I love it. I have a 1st Generation Passport Max with the Live Cord. It's makes it way better than yesterday's detectors. One day I need to upgrade again and get the newest model. I live in a small area and so far it far exceeds what I need. For my area, I'm not using most of the features my model is capable of. I have to travel in order to get any actual laser signals. I would strongly advice giving Escort a try. I'm kinda partial to Escort. I have friends that swear by Valentine One, but I've always had the greatest of luck with Escort. I'm probably a lifelong customer. I've tried other brands, but always wish I had just bought an Escort. Put your money on an Escort. You'll be happy that you did.
