Please update to support Apple CarPlay!!! 1/5
By P LOCK
At the beginning, this app worked perfectly with my Max 360C with very little issues. Now it crashes if you’re lucky to have it connect to your radar detector or it won’t connect at all. If it does connect and crashes, you have to open it up again, then close it & reopen it to connect. Not all of the roads in my city has the posted speed limit displayed through the Escort Live app. It’s really frustrating to have spent all of this money and the app isn’t even par. Please fix with an app update!!!
Doesn’t update App regularly thus resulting in bug with iOS updates 1/5
Really Escort I can’t believe for company like you all that you would be so far behind on updating the app. The last one was 5 months ago that you put out. Escort Live with my Max 360c hardly even works now. Every iOS update something else breaks because you all don’t keep maintenance updates on your app. Seriously pull your heads out!
Needs major GUI overhaul 3/5
This is a good application but it looks very old! The user interface definitely out dated and not optimized for new iPhones.

My radar detector helps keep me safe!
Constant Issues 3/5
Regularly unable to connect to the server. Really frustrating when you buy a high end unit and out doesn't connect to the app.
Phone says escort max is connected to Bluetooth but app doesn’t want to connect it. Escort has the Bluetooth symbol on it for connection, app just won’t cooperate. A lot of money spent for it not cooperate
Update Please 1/5
We need a firmware update for 12.1.4 and also a GUI restyle for the new gen of iPhones.
Will NOT Be Renewing .. 1/5
The app and its “premium” features are a complete waste of money.
You’re better off using Waze than you are relying on Escort for real time information.
A piece of sh***t 1/5
By Harmony Ninja
Blue tooth quit working. Tried everything possible still not working.
App needs work! 1/5
Yikes! Pay $650 for a radar detector that should talk to the app but it does not work half the time. Fix it! Errors out and disconnects all the time.
Rip off 1/5
This app keeps sending me notification saying that my subscription has expired. I just read new the scription and downloaded the app and I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still saying subscription has expired.
App upgrade/redesign needed!! 1/5
I have had a Escort Live products for an extremely long time, and this app has not changed infrastructure or design in that entire time. Sure, there have been minor “bug” updates over time, but the app doesn’t even fill the screen of iPhone X or iPhone XS max. I still find that it is hit or miss when I launch the app and it will just spin saying logging in, until it times out. I also do not like that I have to open the app every day to log back in, every other app on my phone stays open unless I specify in settings to close it after certain time or I close myself. I want to get in my car, and have it automatically connect just like my phone does to the Bluetooth system in my car. I have tried to sell this product to several friends and family members, but the biggest point, is that nobody wants to have to worry about opening another app and waiting for that to connect Bluetooth, they just want it to work. Please escort, the app is the main functionality of your star devices, show a little attention to that part of the product.
App doesn’t work with my max360 1/5
Using my iphone8 this app doesn’t work with my 360. Have tried everything, it’ll even connect to the detector via Bluetooth but still say it’s not connected. Don’t bother with this app, waste of time.
Needs A Complete Overhaul 2/5
The app is good, in the sense that it does what you need it to do about 2/5 times you open it. Other than the fact that connection is more often broken than connected, the app crashes every other time it is opened. It isn’t formatted for iphone screens past the 8/8+. This app feels, looks, and works like it was made years ago. Time for a reskin, reoptimization, or honestly a complete redo/overhaul of all code.
Great app but... 3/5
By Chris Gage
On the historical detections the “clear” button is at the top right and if you press it, the idiot developer didn’t put a confirmation so all your data is GONE!
The maps don’t offer a “always north” like every map on the face of the ever living planet.
There is no help section and as you know, there is zero documentation for the amazing radar so good luck!
The radar is amazing and worth the developer destroying the app experience.
Nice and great app 4/5
Needs CarPlay and more users 2/5
This app takes Waze one step further. It incorporates Escort radar hits into the app. This is great except it needs more users to be more effective. Make it a free or reasonable app and not need escort’s radar detector (which is an outstanding detector) to be a part of the community. Then you’d have more users and a better app. Then incorporating it into CarPlay is essential. Until there can be included, Waze is still better. Keep up your game and dominance in the field, Escort. Get your app updated.
screen size 3/5
Please upgrade it to be suitable for screen on the latest version iPhone
Max 360 2/5
I’ve been buying Escort Radar detectors since the Cincinnati Microwave days. I guess about 30 plus years. This detector is outstanding! I don’t leave home without it...
5 years later app looks the same.... 1/5
By Baby Boy Armani
Bought a 360c and this is the app we’re using still. I used this app way back when I had x50 now that I upgraded this thing is junk. Waste of $650 for a radar that’s supposed to be matched to this app. United R3 should been my first choice. Escort!!!!! Get somebody to work on this app what is the big deal??????
You’re getting our money, polish this sucker and quit dinking around! 2/5
By Fork In The Road
We’ve purchased the detector and the app subscription.
You have our interest, attention and money.
Get on top of this now or lose your base and resulting revenue.
Why only updated once in the last four months? This app should be updated monthly with bug fixes and occasional enhancements and new functionality.
There are numerous bugs, like settings defaulting back, differences in 10mph between the 360c and the app (detector reading correct, app reading 10mph faster???), BT syncing errors, crazy false positives still on X and K, while Ka and Laser mostly working perfectly.
Don’t lose us. Get it done, and you’ll get 5 stars galore resulting in better profit margins, wider user base, and more satisfied customers to market your product because it meets our expectations and needs and we can’t wait to brag about it.
Rarely Works 2/5
The concept is a great idea, but they need to hire some legitimate software engineers because the app constantly has something wrong. Whether it won’t connect through bluetooth, or an error message when trying to sign in, or the app crashing, on the rare occasion it does work the radar detector will still go off on alerts that you’ve locked out to not go off etc.... between the radar detector, smart cord and subscription you have to pay in order to use this terrible app, I’m about $500 in the hole. You’re better off just buying a $500 radar detector.

Can’t log in. Says information is wrong format. 👎🏼
Doesn’t work out of the gate! 1/5
By Joney ton ton son o non
Can’t even log in, getting invalid format errors. Just got the ix a couple hours ago.
Reading the reviews, I am returning and getting the Uniden R3.
The Escort is a compete waste of time.
Not what i was sold on 1/5
Brand new and was sold on the concept the app was great its terrible bluetooth connects for 45 seconds then drops the connection then never reconnects. I keep getting a pop up saying google maps cannot boot up ????? I have no idea what that means and the pop up asks me if i own this webpage ??? What the hell does thst mean and then it has a tab that says Ok. Not ann answer to its question. Just freaking frustrating to paying this much and was sold a bill-of goods with this app this day of age this app should work flaw listless. This is JUNK
Don’t work 1/5
I cannot even log in, I have tried uninstall the app I have tried registering not registering either way I have tried it don’t let me get very far so off to the next one
Won’t let me log in 1/5
Keeps saying it can’t read format when trying to login
February 1st update?? 2/5
Where is the update I was told was coming February 1st at CES 2019. You must have meant February 1st 20-eventually...
Great app but... 3/5
By I dislike the pro version
Honestly, I love this feature for my radar detector. Amazing heads up, prompts, and features. Feel almost invincible on the road. But there is no way to use the app as a direction-by-direction GPS system. It has a map, and it even has a button that SHOULD be able to bring up directions to a determined address. But it doesn’t work. I read about the map format that they are currently using, and it seems they, as a company, have to pay a fee to activate GPS directions for users. With a $4.99 a month premium fee, I feel cheated. I would be willing to pay 5.99-7.99 if they could just SYNC UP THE SYSTEM WITH GOOGLE MAPS. Without it, I’m never able to use the HUD, or other features within the app. Currently as it sits, the premium service should be worth $2.99 a month, because if you’re taking a trip which needs directions, you’re only gonna refresh the app interface and leave it on idle while your GPS app of choice takes up the screen.
Also, since I began using this app, their serves have shut down twice. You couldn’t even use the app, an error code would appear, and you’d have to wait for it to come back on.
On another topic, there isn’t a Q/A for this app, no planned updates, and very limited consumer-to-developer gateways. If the makers do end up reading this, please establish some port of communications for suggestions/comments. Thanks.
Couldn’t even make an account to get started 2/5
Kept saying error using wrong format. I tried turning my phone off and turning it back on to see if that would help. I also tried deleting the app and reloading it to see if that would help. No can do, nothing worked. I was hopping this work.
By Daddy Cesar
Trash app. So much for paying for the premium service. It now says data is incorrect. With the same login every time. As much as these radar detectors are they don’t do too well updating their products. Can’t even use it even without the login!!
No ticket but 3/5
By mv painting
Passed a Washington st patrol and nothing on escort
Wide open I 90 farm land
Waste of time & 6$
Please fix ‘ignore alert’ bug!! 1/5
Please fix the ignore alert bug. For some reason I am only able to mute alerts and continue to experience repeat alerts in areas I previously ignored them in prior versions of the app. It would also be awesome if you could filter out the frequencies used my bumper sensors.
Awesome App! BUT FIX GOOGLE TRAFFIC!!! 4/5
I drive cross-country every chance I get and this thing in conjunction with the MAX 360 radar detector are awesome - I love the advanced warning from others using the app running ahead of me - would be nice to see more enhancements to the reporting feature. Needs dark mode across the board not just dashboard view.
It is sad to call an app premium then charge the user for those “premium features” and yet the app still looks the same as it did 4 years ago and comes with many issues. This app has many issues that need to be fixed! Does escort not care what their consumers have to say, they obviously don’t listen because people have been complaining about this app for a long time and no changes have been made. I just bought an escort ix and build quality is superb yet so much is taken away when from the detector when they advertise matching it up with the app and it doesn’t work. When there are two or more Bluetooth capable devices in the car the detector won’t automatically connect to the primary user even if the other person does not have the app. It continues to reset app settings, I’ll turn off speed warning, and moments later it will be back on again. You spend a lot of money on these devices then they want you to spend even more by subscribing to the app and even subscribing for the anual detector update software. I would be totally fine paying for these options if they worked properly. COME ON ESCORT, MAKE SOME CHANGES !!!!!
Tons of connectivity issues with Bluetooth, very old / outdated looking interface and speed varies from app to actual detector signified doors. Do not recommend..
Radar detector 4/5
Haven’t used it at this time have a trip coming up this weekend.
Escort live never really works right 1/5
The long-standing complaint that the map in escort live just orients itself randomly so you never know which way the radar threat is from your location on the map should be corrected, escort obviously doesn't care about the customer complaints on this problem. About half the time the radar detector won't connect to the iPhone via Bluetooth. Very unreliable software. Too bad escort can't get this right, but I guess they're suckering a lot of people into buying the stuff anyway.
No Support hence No Future 1/5
you can tell escort radar company stopped caring about this app, from the design, to the device compatibility, to just developing and in innovating for the future, it’s best they shut down this app as their new products and vision of radar is not inline with what the app could be
Great stuff here ! 5/5
What a great tool for open road across the country as we drive from the Rockies to the Carolinas
Thank you !!!
Works like it’s supposed to but.. 2/5
This app does exactly what it’s intended to but let me tell you it’s rough around the edges. The UI is awful and they don’t even have it fully compatible with iPhone X’s yet ,you just get the floating screen in the middle with nothing on the far ends, which have been out for over a year now. The updates for the app are few and far between so don’t plan on another one coming for another year looking at their update history page. Get your stuff together escort this is a pathetic excuse of an app and maybe push out more than one update a year.
Love my escort radar!!!
App is great you need to update your detector 5/5
This app is great even though they haven’t updated it for the bigger screen iPhones. I hope they do this soon if your having problems with your detector connection please be sure to update your detector with the new set firmware from escorts website with detector tools (Mac version will check for all versions and update your detector for free) with this app and your updated detector you will have. A much better time.
WON’T CONNECT TO IPHONE X 1/5
By Original Irish Viking
I’ve got multiple detectors (9500ix, MAX), and I’ve got a SmartCord Live Direct Wire installed in each vehicle. The SmartCord Live will rarely connect to the Escort Live app, and on the rare occasions I can get it to connect AFTER unplugging my detector AND the SmartCord Live, AND removing the device from the list of Bluetooth devices on my iPhone X, the SmartCord Live will simply disconnect every time I shut off the ignition and restart the vehicle. Very frustrating. Very poor performance from the “Drive Smarter” “leader” in radar and laser detectors. They need to get their act together.
Seldom Works 1/5
Seldom makes a Bluetooth connection to my iPhone or iPad. When it does, it disconnects on its own.
Needs improvement 2/5
After spending $400 the app should be free to use, however I’m ok with paying it.
My only real issue is that when I connect my phone to the detector on on screen speed limit works fine, as soon as I lock my screen, it’s gone. Pretty simple feature to implement, if that was fixed, I would have zero issues and switch to a 5 star rating.
Good Ap.. Needs Updated 3/5
Ap is great, but still not updated to iPhone X or later.. easy fix to make this a 5 star ap
Update for iPhone X and XS MAX 1/5
This is now going on 2 years with no update for the iPhone X. Now the iPhone XS MAX is out with no update for the screen. The UI need to adapt for the screen size. What the hell is the deal? 2 years?? And still no update. I guess this company has no idea what the hell an iPhone is. I spend so much money on escort and the least you people can do it fix something simple. If you don't know how to fix it then escort needs to hire someone who knows everything about an iPhone. If i don't see an update with in the next 2 months, I will never purchase an escort product ever again.
