Escort Passport App 5/5
Had to re-download afyer a year or so. The app is phenominal, except you cannot change any of the Dashboard anymore. I cannot change anything on the Dashboars. That is my only grip, otherwise it’s a solid app.
Great App to expensive! 3/5
By Willow Crash
Not worth $49.95 a year.
Released before it was ready 2/5
I have a redline and used the prior app for years, exclusively for my motorcycle. It connected to my Bluetooth headset in my helmet.
The new app doesn’t work properly. It looks great. That’s it. The voice and radar alerts don’t connect to other Bluetooth devices like it used to. Sometimes it works. I can’t figure out why, it’s likely a conflict in the connectivity that is resolved based on the order in which things are connected. But I couldn’t get it to work reliably or consistently.
This is a major flaw. If I could I’d go back to the last generation software. Without Bluetooth connectivity the radar is useless. It’s just a pretty application on your phone.
Love it ! 5/5
I like what escort has been doing, the cloud idea is great because I am aware of what’s ahead before I even get there. One thing I would suggest as an add on to this is add turn by turn directions directly on this app. Other than that it’s amazing.
New app is horribly broken! 1/5
Escort, are you going to fix this app?
I can’t even believe you would allow this version to be released in this state.
I have NEVER reviewed an app before, but this is so horribly broken it is unusable....
Please consider bringing back the original app until such time as you are able to fix this version
Ex great 5/5
By longdistance traveler
Quite the overhaul! 5/5
Needed an update bad, but to go above and beyond to redesign it was perfect. Now just integrate Apple Carplay!
Nice Tool! 😊 5/5
This app makes it easier to make necessary adjustments without being in your vehicle!
Sometimes iffy app 4/5
By Philo Eunomos
There are times when I’m unable to post the location of police or other information, like traffic congestion. I push the appropriate symbol and nothing posts on the app like it used to. Too many glitches! Sad to say, but old app was better and it allowed you to push a button on the power cord to identify police locations without having to take your eyes off the road to push two police symbols on the screen. Disappointed!
Escort live 3/5
I have had multiple radar detectors in the past including valentine the redline and the max 360,but every since I purchased the max 360C I have had issues with Escort Live,,I have an iPhone 7 with all the updates and every time I try to use Escort Live the alerts will come through into my phone but will not show up on the map, I have called multiple times to escort Support and so far no one has been able to help me with this issue,, I am very disappointed with escort support group so at this point especially with no help from escort I cannot recommend this product at all if it changes in the future I will write another review from the answers I’ve already received where they have told me well that is strange and Maybe it’s a phone issue but I have called Apple also and they said it’s either in the detector and or the application we also need Directions on how to use the new appso far the old one was better cannot use navigation Or anything else on the new app that you just dead in the water where can I go to get Instructions on how to use the app?
Overspeed alert no longer works 1/5
By overspeed alert
Updated my max II to new Escort live app and my overspeed alert no longer works.
National Updates 1/5
Why don’t you offer customers the choice of retaining their settings when you (corporate) decide to make global changes? You did one six weeks ago and I lost all my settings.
To fix your creation of a problem, I can no longer fix it from my desktop (why reduce my choices for ease of use?) , I must use your app on my smartphone in my car!
Also, why not just give customers a choice when you launch your Escort Max 360c global updates. E. G. “ Retain previous settings?” And “Return to default settings (which is the only choice now)?
Escort 360 App 1/5
By bodysnatcher ctsV
Not very dependable at all works when it wants to must be a Democrat
Terrible app. I own 3 radar detectors from Escort (all 360) and this thing is useless. Give up Escort.
Nice app 3/5
Love the link between escort live app and my 360 but my big issue is when I hit big enough bumps (train tracks) it submits a police sighting and I have to resubmit a false report. Because this happens too much I hardly link them together.
By Tippit Zoo
Won’t connect to my Bluetooth.
App works much better than before update, but the dashboard is too dark! 4/5
I’m using this app with a Redline on my motorcycle. The app functions and connects to my Smart cord Live much better than the previous version, but the dashboard is way too dark for daytime use. The previous version’s dashboard was legible in sunlight but the new one is not. If you could update the app with light/dark/high contrast dashboard options this app would get 5 stars from me!
Great social support product 5/5
As long as everyone reports we are all safe
Some Improvement 2/5
The new Escort Live App has improved on the Map side of the app. however the Dashboard definitely took a step backward, when i get alerts now you can barely see them I have to put on my glasses to see the type of alert, with the old dashboard it popped up front and center and very easy to read, same with the speed very hard to read with the improved app. if you want to improve this app bring back the old Dashboard and leave the map side alone...or at the very least make the alerts and speed large enough to read at a glance...
Garbage App 1/5
Can’t even log in. I can log into the web (which is totally useless) but cannot log into the app. What a TOTAL waste of money. Get the new Uniden R7.... far better performance and service. Escort has gone down the tubes...
BTW: Even customer service agreed it is bad including the web login to nowhere...
Old Data 2/5
There is no way to delete old speed trap reports which keep warning for months. Far less crowd sourcing than Waze. Better to use the detector for radar and Waze for warnings.
Freeze !!!!!!!!! All the time even when reinstall the app
Absolute garbage 1/5
It doesn’t work!!! Why I didn’t get Cobra I don’t know, but this is pure trash. ZERO OUT OF 5!
Bluetooth issue 4/5
I cannot connect to my iPhone via Bluetooth and can’t find the WiFi connection. Am I missing something?
Speed limit 1/5
Speed limit feature has been a major problem with old version app. I had hard time to make it work. Registered with Escort IX. After the recent update no matter what I do, I couldn’t get it to work. Speed limit display is a great feature ONLY when it works!
I got an email from Escort
“For further assistance, please contact our customer service department at 1-800-974-3138”
I did contact customer service before I received the email. Customer rep. said it is strange he will share the information with developers.
Still not solved this issue.

App update 2/5
App was great before the redesign. Now it’s just ok. The major flaw is now it takes forever to connect to my device. I have to close the app multiple times before it would connect to my device. Once my device is connected, it works fine. The only other issue I have is that once the app is running, a blue header bar pops up on the screen once you move to a different app/screen. This becomes annoying when on the internet and are unable to scroll up quick to the top of the page.
Can’t Hear the Warnings 1/5
By K carb
The old app would blast the warnings over my IPhone music. I could easily hear the warnings while riding my motorcycle. Now I can’t hear the warnings. 😕. Please Fix!!
Just Purchased 3/5
I have an X50 and tried the app w/o smart cord live. Meh. The only way the app will work is if people participate. The app is a social media platform. Participation is manual without a compatible detector or “smart cord live.” Smart cord live connected to my detector fine. Hopefully this will make reporting easier. Will adjust my rating and update this review shortly.
Disappointed with updated app 2/5
The new app is no where near as user friendly (warnings and cell phone visuals) nor effective in identifying radar, red light cameras or speed traps. I would recommend returning to the features the old app had.
Bluetooth connectivity 1/5
By Evan OC
Ever since I bought this device it has not been able to connect seamlessly with my phone
No address search feature for navigation? If you manually pinpoint a location to get directions for, switching to the dashboard and back to the map results in the directions being cleared. This should never have been released. This is not a polished product, and even though it’s free, it is sold as a feature of the high-end devices, and is necessary for some features. I’ll try a different brand.
New update is awesome!
Amazing app. Could not live without it. 3/5
I love being able to find alerts for police, radar etc even before my detector could possibly pick it up. I feel part of a family all reporting issues.
The graphics on the map are fine, but the graphics on the dashboard are terrible. Too small to be of any use. I like the new report button as that is much nicer now. However the requirement to hit it a 3rd time to add moving or stationary for seeing police is a distraction for yet another few seconds. Sad for an app that claims it not a driving hindrance.
By we r nd
this update is horrible....would give zero if able...not user friendly like the old version and cannot hear alerts through my radio as with the old version...after i updated to new version audio stopped working...please either fix this or allow users to go back to old version...
Really disappointed 1/5
The screen, such as how fast you are driving is barely visible during the daytime. If you go over the speed limit the numbers of your speed turn red, and if it is a bright day are totally washed out.
The only good part is it does tend to stay connected to the radar detector. Maybe it is not meant to be an app you run and actually look at?
I was really hoping that this app would use Waze alerts. Waze is much more visible in the cockpit so I will use it, Escort Live can run (or not) in the background.
It keeps turning on speed alerts set to the speed limit which is a real pain. I finally seem to have that feature turned off.
I had heard this was going to be a really cool app, maybe it will have some updates to make it more compatible to be used in a car. Car play?
I really wish on the map screen it would say for example “Ka” and not have to click on the alert to see what band it was. Very distracting.
Over speed limit setting 3/5
Over Speed Limit warnings occur AT the setting.
The warning should occur when the speed limit is exceeded, NOT AT THE LIMIT.
You need to make the map so you can have it show head up (the direction you are driving) not just north up!!!!
Serious problems with new app 2/5
Audio only works in Map mode. MPH display too small in dashboard view and even worse when going over the speed limit which turns the MPH to red color. Lockout only locks out the audio on my radar detector. Phone still gets alerts. Wait for update with fix before you purchase
Most functionality removed. Terrible app. 1/5
This revision was a huge step back for escort. Do NOT update!
Love it 5/5
By Crew 007
Has save me lots of money on tickets and works super well
Premier features don’t work. 1/5
I have a max 360, which is a $500 detector. I travel for a living, and often have 2000 mile weeks. I bought this detector because the idea of an app working with the detector is amazing.
Unfortunately, the app doesn’t work as expected. They claim the app mirrors the device, but the app actually only tracks one signal, where the device can track several.
I am a member of the premium service which is supposed to show laser and KA warnings on the map. This doesn’t work at all. It doesn’t automatically post my warnings, and doesn’t show other people’s warnings. Very disappointing. It does pop up with an option to “verify” alert, but as far as I can tell, that doesn’t do anything at all. I called Escort and they claim this doesn’t work because their servers are overloaded.
I’m pretty bummed this app isn’t better. Even if all of these problems were solved, it would still need to do navigation to get five stars. The developers responded and said if you hold your finger down on the map, you can get directions. That’s ok, for finding your car. It’s not useful if you want driving directions to places you haven’t been before.
No sounds on Bluetooth 1/5
Totally annoyed, no sounds can be heard in my Bluetooth device now.
Piece of garbage app now
By I love t-swift
Worked great until I upgraded...when you lock out a signal it keeps saying it they the audio. NEVER SHUTS UP!!
Bad update 1/5
Who tested this before it did go live?
Please fix this ASAP
Don’t get audio alerts anymore.
Update to the developers reply:
Is not any of those suggestions. I called your tech support and said that will send you guys something for you to fix it. And I just called again today to and they told me the same thing and that other people are calling about the same issue. Please fix this ASAP....
This is ridiculous
Fix this ASAP
Love the new direction of the app, just has issues. 4/5
By Sage Wysocki
Let me say that the overall design of this app is wonderful! It feels like it is finally modern. With that said, things were overlooked and seriously need to get fixed. Among some other negative feedback and what I have experienced, here are some flaws. The voice notifications are broken. I don’t think I’ve been hearing them much, if at all. The overspeed limit voice notification is the only one I’m positive works and even that is completely broken and seems to disregard my programmed setting of it to only go off over 100mph. Another issue with the design, the top bar is able to be pulled down by touching the green area to see radar status. I have no idea what the bottom area that appears the same “pulls up” to, if it does anything. On an iPhone X and later, you can’t pull from that part of the screen without closing the app. Either this was a hideous oversight, or a slight error in graphic design, I don’t know. It just needs to be fixed. With these issues and some of the other issues others have mentioned, this application would be a fantastic go-to! I really like what you were working on, Escort. You just released it before giving it to quality control. Can’t wait for the future update.
Terribly disappointing 1/5
By Total truth?
The old app connected, I should say ‘recognized’ my detector about 1 in 15 attempts to connect. Even when it did connect to Bluetooth the app still had no clue I have a detector. The new one isn’t much better, however, the biggest step backward is the ability to lock out nuisance signals. When will this be added and when will you do something serious about connectivity? I’ve had Escort detectors for 15 years and really hope you can get this to work!
Awful new app. 1/5
By Timothy Tech Toys
100 sub for an app that doesn’t work
200 dash cam
Another app that doesn’t work
A customer going elsewhere? Priceless.
Next time you launch, do a proper validation across all devices. I can’t login.... and the reset tool doesn’t work.
Valentine one should get my $$$
