IF YOU DON’T already know about Escort Live, you probably should.

The app links up with an Escort radar detector via Bluetooth, and when your detector catches a signal bandwidth that might be a police speed gun or red light camera, it sends the data into the software’s global database. It works like Trapster or Waze by sharing speed-trap sites and plotting trouble spots on its integrated map. Should you hit a false alarm, the software lets you store the signal, so on your morning commute you’re not dealing with constant beeps triggered by the convenience store’s automatic door sensor. The price comes to $50 annually, plus $100 for the Bluetooth-enabled SmartCord.
