    App is, and really has been for years, dated. Really needs a refreshed user interface. Also, app looses connection with radar detector frequently.

    By this one isn't
    App crashes after opening up, don’t always connect to Radar Detector, shows speed of how fast I’m going when I’m stopped. Reading Update History says it fixed all of the same issues I’m having, I feel like it didn’t glad that I didn’t pay for the app, when my free live expires not renewing and uninstalling app

    This app is completely antiquated in design and isn’t updated for a 1080p screen, much less a iPhone X aspect ratio screen. Also, I don’t always want to use my phone exclusively when it connects to my radar. Sometimes I just want to have the app open and not have my physical detector not making sounds. I appreciate seeing that the app is being updated for what I assume are bugs, but this is just a poorly built app at this point.
  • App is ok. Connectivity issues and slow manual input of police data

    Finally figured out after 3-4 years why connectivity between iPhones apps and detector occur. I currently have an IPhone X with IOS 12.1. The detector is fantastic as far as detecting various radars. The problem is the app interface. If you manually power app off each time you park car and turn power on when you get in, the app will connect 100% of the time. If you forget to manually power the detector off, it automatically powers down after 10 minutes or so. When this occurs, when you get back in vehicle and power detector up, it does not connect and sync to the app. Your choices are to log into phone settings, Bluetooth, it will display not connected. You can press the Escort button and the app will connect to the detector, or easier yet is to manually power detector off. Manually shut it off and manually turn detector back on and the app will sync to the detector 100% of the time. The bottom line is the detector will not sync to the phone if the detector is shut down because of sleep mode power down mode. The other issue is trying to manually press police spotted or speed trap, especially if all is displaying police spotted ahead alert. The police locally frequently hide along multiple locations along a patrolled street. Very seldom do they sit in one location for more than 15 - 20 minutes, so I constantly get alerts where the police have been. The problem is if I want to manually enter police spotted data, it takes forever for the option to show up if I am getting a bogus or old alert, so I have travelled 1/4. - 1/2 mile before I enter data which ends up being a false alert to someone else. It is difficult to do this because it is the equivalent of distracted driving due to texting. Instead of identifying each radar location in a small stretch, the system/app should tell you that within the next mile there are frequent police radar checks within the next mile. The same is true for freeways. The app should ID actual Ka or laser alerts, but should say frequent police traps at multiple locations in the next 5 miles.
  • Passport Max 2 / iPhone X

    App never connects to passport Max 2.... literally forces you to restart the radar multiple times before connecting. Also, the app is VERY dated and doesn’t even take advantage of the iPhone X’s screen. These are MINOR bugs that would make a HUGE difference. I literally could reprogram the whole app over night and fix these problems. Step it up... plz.

    The app looks like it was made when the app store was first made. Looks and feels so old. Also, some settings are only there half of the time. I have to log out and in a few times before certain speed settings will appear. And, for a company that sells $500 products, you'd think that the app would include an actual tutorial that shows and explains each setting. And finally, there should be a preview on the radar that should appear every time you change a setting. So then you can see what the difference is between the settings. For instance, arrow selection. Don't know what the difference colored arrows mean in multi or band setting, so I'll have to Google it!

    I have an Escort 360 Max Send an iPhone XS Max. It only connects if I forget the radar detector and link it again. Escort live is an excellent idea with amateurish execution.
  • Mixed Signals

    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. The latest rev keeps switching from dashboard view to map view on its own whenever I switch apps or use the phone. Also alerts, even when muted block the audio controls so you can’t press pause. The latest update keeps switching to the map instead of the dashboard. It’s driving me nuts. Please fix it!

    App doesn’t show alerts even after it says recorded. Which makes it useless and waste of time, DatA, and space on phone
