    ESCORT Live! Compatible
    SmartRadar is fully compatible with the award-winning ultimate real-time ticket protection network - ESCORT Live! Our remarkable "Live" service allows you to receive (1) Police Spotted Alerts, (2) Speed Trap and Camera Alerts (3) Live Radar and Laser Alerts from other drivers in your area. Simply download the app from iTunes for your iPhone (iOS 4.1 or higher), or from Google Play for your Android Phone (OS 2.2 or higher), and pair your phone to SmartRadar. While we continue to communicate and work with manufacturers and network carriers, due to the vast number of available hardware configurations some Android customers have reported features that occasionally do not operate properly or have experienced inconsistent operation when using certain brands of cell phones and/or carriers. The app provides several intuitive displays, access to all user settings and you'll have instant access to other drivers on the road providing real-time ticket protection. Imagine millions of scouts giving you miles of advanced warning for active speed traps and other traffic related threats.

    The ESCORT Live! app also adds several features to SmartRadar, including multiple user displays, elimination of false alerts, notifications for speed limit changes and much more. Add ESCORT Live! to SmartRadar and you'll be ready to Drive Smarter!

    Justin King -
    "The SmartRadar can be used as a standalone detector, but the Escort Live app brings an entirely new dimension to 'ticket protection,' ...the combination of high-performance onboard detection and instant access to a cloud-based alert network represents the next level in enforcement avoidance."

    "This radar detector gets a 5 star rating for performance and user friendly operation."

    What is included with the SmartRadar?
    Radar/laser receiver with built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, Mini display controller and mounting bracket, compatible smartphone interface, 2 receiver mounting brackets(suction cup and adhesive mount), 2 power connection kits(for rearview mirror or fuse panel connection), Zip ties(for securing any loose/dangling wires), Quick Reference Guide, User Manual(on disc) and Limited One Year Warranty.

    Is it the most sensitive model available? vs. Redline, vs. Passport 8500 X50, vs. 9500ix, vs. iQ
    The Redline is the more sensitive dash model available on the market but it does not have the GPS features of the Passport 9500ix. The SmartRadar, Passport 8500 X50 Black, the Passport iQ and the Passport 9500ix have similar radar and laser performance, but again, the SmartRadar does not include the GPS features. The Passport iQ combines radar/laser detection and a full GPS navigation system in one convenient model.

    Can it be used overseas?
    We do not monitor frequencies used overseas, but many customers travel abroad with their Passport.

    What is Expert Mode?
    Expert Mode will show you up to 8 radar signals at the same time and will show relative signal strength and associated Band of each signal.

    Where are they illegal?
    Radar detectors are completely legal to use in non-commercial vehicles in 49 states. Virginia and Washington D.C. are the only places in the United States that currently ban radar detectors. Radar detector use in commercial vehicles has been prohibited in the U.S. since 1995 and radar detectors are also illegal in most Canadian provinces. We do not track detector regulations in other countries.

    Do you pay for tickets?
    Escort Inc. does not condone breaking posted speed limits and has never offered to reimburse speeding citations issued when using our products.

    What is the warranty period?
    All our products ordered factory direct come with a full one-year factory warranty. We also offer an Extended Service Plan on select models that will provide two additional years of warranty for $29.95.
